Current Faves

Sorry for that massive break AGAIN!! I seriously don't know why I haven't had my ish together for the last couple of months. Maybe because second year uni is way more difficult that first year {thats what I tell myself anyways to make myself feel better for neglecting the blog}. I'll try my very best to post often, but the end of the semester is in my sights which means 10000x more assignment deadlines and the exams are close. I'LL MAKE IT WORK *snaps in window wiper fashion*

I thought that everyone would appreciate a good ol' faves post because I know that I love them. I've had some time to experiment with both old and new makeup that have literally been on my face most of the time. I like to stick to what I know, ya feel?

MAC "Mocha" Blush
omg. this blush tho. It's a matte pinky-plum blush that just looks incredible on my face. It's one of the blushes that I like to refer to as a "sculpting blush" as it works to chizzle my cheekbones without the whole contour thing. Heart eyed emoji all up in here!

Bare Minerals The Magic Act Palette
gah I know I mentioned palette in my last faves post but I couldn't leave it out. My go-to everyday eye makeup involves most of the shades in this palette. I use the pink on the lid to brighten the eye and then go in lightly with the last shade on the outer V and crease. yes, me likey. Paired with a subtle wing too? YAS GIRL YAAAASSSSSS.

Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil
If there has been one hair care thing that I have been using religiously, it's been this baby. I use it after I wash my hair so it absorbs into the strands while my hair dries. It makes my hair feel SO soft, like a soft teddy bear! My hair feels so much healthier after getting da big chop, and this oil is helping maintain that healthiness during the visits back to the hair dressers.

Maybelline Pumped Up Colossal Volum' Express Mascara
I picked this mascara up on a whim during the price line 40% off sale and I have two words. Me Gusta. It is everything that I love in a mascara and I am so picky when it comes to how my lashes look. This mascara gives phenomenal volume at the base while making the ends a little longer. I'm not too keen on length, I'm all about that volume and the curl holding all day. And it's waterproof which is pretty much a requirement in mascaras for me these days.

L'Oreal Collection Exclusive Color Riche Nude Couture Lipstick "Julianne's Nude"
I am so late on the bandwagon with this lipstick line from L'Oreal. I had my eye on Julianne's nude lipstick for ages so I waited for the price line sale which was a total risky move. To my delight, I saw the last two shades hiding above an essie stand so I also picked up "Eva's Nude" because it was beautiful too! I love the sheer, sheeny finish on the lips. I always feel like they make me look alive. Super comfortable on the lips, perfect nude for me, well worth the hype imo!

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner "Trooper"
This liner is almost as good as my Maybelline Master Precise Liner! They have identical thin felt/brush hybrid tip which allows for sharp wings. The Kat Von D liner is very pigmented, very black which is what I love in a liquid eyeliner as I love that bold pin-up cat eye! You do have to work quick with this liner but it lasts ALL DAY without fail! It doesn't budge on my eyelids even in the hotter months or if my eyes get watery. I really love this eyeliner but the maybelline one is a good alternative if you aren't willing to fork out the dough.

I hope you enjoyed my current faves as much as I have, I would love to know what you are loving at the moment so I can trial some new things! :)
