I thought it was about time for a chatty blog post, as it’s been some time – EOFY is always a crazy time in Finance! I wanted to discuss my current beauty essentials, as right now (and every morning!) I’m all about quick breezy makeup that makes me look alive in the morning, and a little more like the glamorous me I think I am.
I could NOT live without my Tinted Beachy Brows for the literal beachy brows it gives me … think brushed up plump brows for days. I swipe on a touch of brow pencil prior to wetting this little pot of gold with my Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Spray and use the spoolie shown to brush up my brows til they don’t even look like my brows – it’s that good. You can also purchase the clear version, which I think I might do need – although I like the tinted version, I can be a little slap happy and clean up afterwards is a must.
I always have in my handbag – so in love with my new handbag from Title Theory, and thanks Paula Joye for the discount code – one or both of the The Beauty Archive lip cream in Effortless and Clarins Natural Lip Perfector. I interviewed Zandra from The Beauty Archive years ago, and have used her lip creams non stop since, but Effortless is my absolute favourite.
I subscribed to Elle (or maybe Marie Claire actually) recently and picked up a Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat as a bonus gift, and I remember how much I love thee. So brightening for my dull winter skin, that doesn’t crease or crack throughout the day.
I also received a sample of Benefit BADGal BANG! Volumising Mascara recently and I’m actually v impressed with the results after just one coat. Slight bit of mess towards the end of the day but nothing too much, a mascara to try if you’re in the market for a new one.
Lastly, my Lanolips order arrived this week and I’ve no doubt the new Lanostick will become a loved staple, as it’s just the original but better! My lips are forever dry and I always have a lip balm handy at all times, so what’s another one, right?
