I HAVE BEEN AWFUL AT POSTING. But the last few months I’ve gotten a lot done.
I completed my AS exams and got all A’s (Biology, Maths, Physics, Chemistry) and I’ve applied to 5 universites (Warwick, Exeter, Bath, Southampton, Surrey) to do either a Bachelors or Masters in Biomedical science, and I’ve got offers from all! Over the summer I also completed a 100 hour open university course in Human genetics and health issues.
So it’s been busy busy.
But today I got inspired to do a talky post so I thought I’d do an autumn favourites!
I picked this up about a month ago, because somehow all my hand creams disappeared. I thought it’d be best get to get a more natural product because in my head I thought it’d be more moisturising. Its very good and sinks in quite quickly. Its the first time in ages that my hands havent felt all dry and crusty.
Must say, I’m not a huge fan on the new MAC mineralize packaging, but sacrifices have to be made!
Its a really pretty beigey-champagne, that looks great as an eyeshadow or highlight. I’ve recently been loving highlighting my cupids bow when im wearing lipstick as it makes my lips look more pouty & fierce.
The highlighter is very versatile too, you can get really subtle and really dramatic looks with it. As im not a huge highlighter person I usually only use a bit on my cheeks. Plus you get a butt-tonne of product!
3) MUA Mosaic Blush- English Rose £2.50
This remains one of my cheapest and favourite blushes in my collection, and is actually a recent repurchase (hence it not looking too shabby!). What I love with this blush is that the colour comes off as a natural rosy-pink but when the light hits it it has a lilac sheen which is GORGEOUS.
Even when using some more high-end makeup, I still layer this over the top sometimes. Even with my oily skin, it gives a pearly finish that I can actually tolerate.
At £2.50 you can’t go wrong, and it may even work its way up into your daily makeup routine.
4) Collection Eyes Uncovered Palette- Nude Grey £3.99
My next favourite is this palette from collection. Collection have really reinvented themselves as a brand in the last year, and this palette is no exception.
What particularly makes me happy about this palette is that there’s a matte highlight shade, and a matte black. It really has all the colours I would use for a neutral eyeshadow look. I only bought this because I’ve recently dyed my hair black and thought cool tones might look better, and Im so glad I have this now!
Again, when it’s only £3.99 it’s a steal, and would make a great stocking stuff at christmas too. Yes I’m one of those people with early christmas fever.
5) Eyelure pro-brow dye kit- black £7.50
As I recently dyed my hair black (see above) I needed to dye my eyebrows black too. This was just before I dyed them black, but as you can see they looked a bit out of place with my hair.
And I found this eyebrow dyed was really easy to use, and didn’t dye my skin black when I used it.
I thought i’d never see the day when I dyed my eyebrows…
I thought i’d just add this in, because I find with autumn/winter, I wear a lot of darker clothes so I tend to bring a bit of brightness with this necklace sometimes.
I got this at a vintage emporium for 99p. NINETY NINE PENCE OH MY. That’s what i’d clarify as a ‘Bangin’ deal’.
So yeah, GO BUY YOURSELF A BRIGHT NECKLACE. BRIGHTEN THE WORLD.
So that’s it for my autumn favourites, What things have you been loving recently?
