I am so excited for my first monthly favourites!
I have had many favourites this month so I thought I would show you all of the products I have been using in the month of January, mostly being makeup with a few skincare products. I would say I use most of these products for days when I go out and carry a few items in my handbag to create a evening look. I hope you enjoy hearing about some of my favourite products, let me know below what are your stand out products for the month of January!
Origins GinZing Moisturiser
Loveeee this for the fact that it smells so good (like citrus fruit), and cooling on the face which is perfect for summer. It is oil free which is great if you are prone to breakouts and can be applied day or evening and is a great makeup base for creating a luminous look! Win Win!
Clinique- All about lips
I use this for when I have dry lips and it is like a liquid exfoliate. Perfect to use right before you apply your red lip so that you have a smooth base. Love Love this!
MaxFactor- CC Cream
For the summer days when you do not want to wear a foundation this is my go to CC cream as it has a medium coverage with a perfecting luminous finish, it also has an SPF 10.
Real Techniques Buffing brush
I use this foundation brush everyday as it gives me a polished and flawless finish, it gives a lot more coverage than using my fingers and is easy to work with.
CoverGirl Smoochies in #tru love
A hydrating lip tint that gives the lips a nice natural sheen. Great to throw in your handbag . I wear this during the day when I don’t want to wear a lipstick but still want my lips to look hydrated and have a little colour. It is a really great product for the price.
Charlotte Tilbury – Seduction Gloss & Penelope Pink Lipstick
If you have watched Charlotte Tilbury’s videos and have seen the Dolce Vita look that she has created you will see how well these two colours compliment each other (*warning you may become addicted , don’t say i did not warn you 🙂 ). I have been rotating between a red lipstick and a nude lip in the evenings this nude combo gives you a smouldering evening look !
The Falsies Lashes-Very Black
One of my favourite mascaras that I have been love wearing during the day as it is not too black or dramatic and looks natural on my lashes.
Clinique – Super balanced powder makeup SPF 15
I have had this in lying around for a while now but have been using it a lot this month, i love it for days when I want a matt finish but not a heavy coverage, it does well in covering redness.
Charlotte Tilbury- Dolce Vita eyeshadow palette
It is a great palette for a day to evening look, it shows you exactly where to put the colours and I love using prime and enhance shade during the day and darkening the look in the evening by applying the smoke and pop shade.
Charlotte Tilbury-Chic to Chic Blush in Ecstasy
A muted pink blush with a pop of pink in the centre. It give the cheeks a soft glow and gives me a healthy complexion . I use it in the evening after applying my bronzer.
Rimmel- Wake me up concealer
I have been using this concealer hands down all month! It is great for underneath eyes to conceal dark circles. It does not dry the under eye area at all and brightens the eye area.
Neutrogena -Beach Defence SPF 50
This had been in my handbag all month as the summer has been very hot here in Australia. It is light weight and smells fresh. A winner!
Charlotte Tilbury- Film star bronze and glow
There is a bit of Charlotte Tilbury trend this month probably because I was compelled to buy everything from her range (don’t worry i haven’t done so yet!) as I fell in love with so many of her products. I love the bronzer as it sculpts my cheekbones and the highlighter gives you a slight golden glow.
