Current Beauty Favourites


Over the last few weeks I've found myself reaching for the same beauty bits over and over again - I just can't get enough of them!

Since the sun started peeping it's head out I've been loving bright colours on my nails, but the shade I keep going back to over and over again is this mini OPI Cajun Shrimp. It's a coral/red shade which looks good whether I'm tanned or pale, I love it on my fingers and toes and it's the perfect summery shade.  Every manicure/pedicure I do lately I finish off with a coat of Seche Vite top coat.  It cuts the drying time in half and makes my nails look super shiny.


My skincare has stayed pretty similar over the last few months, but since adding the Liz Earle Superskin Concentrate roller ball (review here) to my routine I've seen a huge change in my skin. It seems smoother, more hydrated, and my acne scars seem to have faded.  This little bottle has lasted a really long time, but I only have the tiniest drop left so I'll definitely be making a repurchase soon.

I've been using the Make Up Forever Mattifying Primer every day lately, I won't go on about it too much because I have a full review coming, but I love it!  On my cheeks I can't get enough of the Clinique Chubby Stick for Cheeks in Robust Rhubarb (review here). Every time I apply powder blush it just doesn't sit as nicely on my skin or look as natural as this seems to.  I love stippling it on to my cheeks with the Real Techniques Stippling Brush to add a healthy glow.  I'm still loving the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in my brows most days, but whether I'm filling in the sparse patches or going for a natural look, I always brush Benefit Gimme Brow (review here) through my eyebrows.  It adds a bit of colour, some dimension and a lot of hold to the hairs, I use it every day without fail.  Lastly, since adding Cut a Caper to my collection of MAC lipsticks (here) I can't get enough of it.  Because it's a Lustre finish it adds a sheer wash of peachy colour - perfect for every day wear especially when the sun is shining.

What have you been loving lately?
