Wait... It's already March!? Are you sure?
It's crazy how fast 2016 is going. But now that it's March, it's time for another monthly favourites! These are one of my favourite blog posts to write, who doesn't like talking about their favourite things? Let's get straight into it!
First up, this flat top foundation brush from Crown Brush. This came in a set I got from Crown Brush and it has to be one of the best brushes I've received. Of course I still love to apply foundation with beauty blenders or sponges, HOWEVER I have been using this brush lately and it gives such a flawless finish to my foundation. Can't recommend it enough!
My holy grail mascara right now is the Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara. Everything about it is amazing. Great brush, dark black colour and lashes so long without transferring. It is comfortable to hold and gets every single lash to behave and makes them look like false lashes! Love it so so much.
Urban Decay is a well-loved brand to many, I especially love their Baked Bronzer in Gilded. I've been using it to add some shimmer and sheen over the top of my matte bronzer, it makes a nice blush too! I had to include it in my favourites, it definitely doesn't have enough people raving about it.
Mac Prep & Prime Fix+ is a life saver! Works in multiple different ways and I have been loving it this month. I use it before I apply my makeup as a primer, then to set my face after applying makeup. It helps set the powders and make my face look dewy without getting oily. It also works to help the pigmentation of eyeshadows. It's amazing.
My favourite eyeliner recently has been the Ingot Gel Liner in 77 (black). It glides on so smoothly and is very long lasting. It dries and stays put all day, which is what I need since I tend to rub my eyes forgetting I have makeup on... I use this to create the perfect winged eyeliner and it is as black as black gets.
I have an obsession with false eyelashes. They make any makeup look ten times better! I kept hearing about the Koko Lashes from Lady Moss and ended up buying two beautiful pairs - Misha and Diva. They blend so well with your real lashes and are extremely easy to apply. I ordered them online and they arrived very quickly. They are also quite cheap! Adore these!
That's it for makeup products, I have one skincare product to mention. I bought this a few days ago and I can't believe the difference it made in my skin. I have pretty good skin to be honest, I have a normal skin type and I don't often get pimples so most skincare products don't really show a noticeable difference with my skin. However this Biore Pore Unclogging Scrub has made my skin so smooth, soft and dewy. It made it look like I had Mac Soft & Gentle on while wearing no makeup! I couldn't believe how nice this made my skin look after one wash.
Moving on to random things...
Lately I've been replacing my morning coffee with a Berocca, it has 0 sugar and loads of vitamins! They come in two flavours that honestly taste like soft drink (so yummy) and make my feel energised and awake. I can't go without them anymore! I love the berry flavour, it tastes like creaming soda.
Another food related item I've been loving is the Cocobella Choc Almond Super Smoothie. It tastes exactly like chocolate milk yet 100% healthier. I love finding yummy alternatives to unhealthy foods I can't live without. So I thought I'd share this with you guys because it's so refreshing and tasty!
Now onto music I've been loving. I use Spotify to listen to music on my laptop and phone and I don't know what I did without it! My favourite songs right now are:
Sia - Cheap Thrills
Coldplay ft. Beyonce - Hymn For The Weekend
Rihanna, SZA - Consideration
Check them out, I'm jamming to them right now as I write this post ;)
