I always love the end of the month rounding-up the beauty products that have been tickling my pickle over the past few weeks. At the start of the month, I made a new years resolution to myself to dig out neglected products that have been sitting in my stash for some time and to try and slip them into my everyday routines.
The lips I haven't adorned my lips with the RMK Irresistible lips lipsick in ages, which is slightly odd given that early in 2014 it was my absolute favourite shade to sport. The nameless shade is a super, super moisturising brown toned dusky red shade that perfectly accompanies a wash of gold on the eye lids. The shade is super pigmented and long lasting without being too smudgy. It's your lips but better... One of those.
The eyes I've been dabbling with brown eye liner again, more specifically a gel liner in a deep golden, brown shade from Collection. I like to use this on my waterline only as it warms up a golden, smokey eye look and looks less harsh against more basic everyday make-up.
The hair I have been dabbling with sea salt spray throughout January and experimenting with texture in my hair. With the amount of deep, nourishing conditioners that I slap on my barnet weekly my hair is often ridiculously soft but limp and a little lifeless. A few spritzes of the 'just back from the beach' Boho waves, tousled texture mist and my hair is flexible and texturised without being weighed down or greasy.
The moisturiser If you read [this post] you will have already been introduced to my love for the Victorias Secret Such a flirt body butter. Scented of fresh watermelon the hugely moisturising formula leaves the skin scented delicious and super, super moisturised.
The foundation With an abundance of 6:00am wake up calls throughout January, I turned to an old favourite of mine the Rimmel Wake me up foundation. A gel based, slightly sparkly formula that builds a medium coverage base on your skin and evening out tired, grey skin and brightening up your complexion.
The eyes The Dazzling Khaki eyeshadow by L'oreal is one of my all time favourite shadows to work with when I am wanting a sparkly, smokey eye. The beautiful grey-green shadow is part of the Chrome Shine range which i'm not sure is still a L'oreal line but it can be very easily found online. Perfect for light eyes, it gives them a magnifying pop of colour.
