Monthly Favourites: January

I've been a bit MIA in the blogging world over the past week but I've got myself into gear, got my notebook out and scheduled when I'm gonna blog and when's best for me too, I'm gonna be blogging on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday but let me know if you've got any other suggestions. It can be quite hard juggling work with blogging and coming home at 6pm when it's dark to take photos can be a bit of a nightmare. Anyway, let me know how you think I'm getting on in the near future. I love to hear all your feedback.

Now it's onto January Favourites. I know I say this each month but I really can't believe we're now a month into 2014, for me January was just the longest month and the most depressing and did anyone else feel like payday was months away? I did. Here's to a good Feburary (and a short monthly for all you ladies on monthly pay)!

I know I featured the Nars Gina Blush in last months favourites but I really have grown to love it, I wear this on a daily basis now as I'm currently without a bronzer. I have a stash of blushes (and a new one on the way) so I've dug out the stash and opted for a peachy glow rather than the bronze.

For complexion I've really been loving this MAC combo of their Studio Fix Foundation and Pro Longwear Concealer. My skin has been really good at the moment so I'm surprised to opt for a higher coverage than normal but this is a combo I choose whenever I've got a night out, meal or find myself wanting my skin flawless. This combo lasts all day and the concealer works wonders during a 9-5.30pm working day.

After my Favourite Palettes post, I've been reaching for the Nars And God Created The Woman Palette more and this can create any look, from neutral, to bronzed, to dark. This palette really does deliver all the looks you could possibly need in one palette. The formulation of the Nars shadows are fantastic quality, they last all day and so pigmented. I've also been bitten by the eyeliner bug, a bit of a novice at the moment but I'm hoping over time I can perfect the flick, the Maybelline Gel Eyeliner lasts all day, doesn't smudge over my eyelid and it's so easy to apply. I am on the lookout for an eyeliner brush so send me your recommendations. I never thought I'd be a girl to master eyeliner, I'm not quite there yet but I'm not bad...


  1. Wow beautiful favourites! I have that eyeshadow palette too and it's just gorgeous isn't it x
