Let me get this out there: I just love make-up and skincare. I’m sure I’m not alone in thinking it’s fun and exciting; I love trying new products. Many of my favourite brands can be found sitting pretty on the shelves of Boots and Superdrug though; in fact, I’m not typically a high-end girl when it comes to clothes or accessories either!
When there’s a mention of shopping in the USA though, my thoughts go straight to the holy grail that is Sephora; a chance to get my mitts on some high-end products at a more affordable price? Yes please! My parents are lucky enough to holiday in Florida most years and even luckier for me, my mum will take a trip to Sephora (and MAC) armed with a list longer than her arm!
I’m loving this for highlighting the tops of my cheeks and even under my eyes, to brighten them up after a night of broken sleep.
This is a little more red looking in real life; I’d usually go for something brighter and perhaps pinker, but once it’s on the cheeks it sheers out and it’s so effortless and easy for those days when I’m in a rush. So, like, everyday. It looks great on the lips too for a quick wash of colour!
This gorgeous little quad means I’ve now completed my MAC palette. I’m in love with Expensive Pink— it’s got some beautiful gold tones to it and it goes well with Honey Lust, for a really shimmery look.
I’m no Kardashian when it comes to contouring, but this is a really nice, light and build-able colour, without any shimmer, to quickly carve out some cheekbones with and I know it’ll look great on bronzed skin to accentuate a tan!
This is just the prettiest, girliest pink, that like Harmony, is totally build-able.
I have super oily skin and I don’t know what’s happened to my hormones since having Byron, but if I get a little hot during the summer, my face gets super sweaty. Like, 10 minutes after a nice shower, I’m sweating it up! It’s not attractive. What’s up with that?! Anyway, it makes make-up application pretty difficult, so I rarely want to wear foundation. Tinted moisturiser though, I can handle. This gives just the right amount of coverage, without feeling too heavy. I think it’ll be great for evenings on holiday!
Contour blush with a nice highlight, what’s not to love?
You know the drill. It’s a Naked Palette! I’m loving it, particularly ‘Limit’.
It’s been a long time since I’ve used loose mineral blush like this and I’d forgotten how much I love it! This is such a natural flushed colour.
I’m OBSESSED with this thing. It’s so easy to use! It’s a beautiful shimmery shade that can be sheered out for an every day look, or layered up for the evening. I want more colours!
Another gorgeous bright pink, that comes in the most exquisite packaging, but is also really beautiful on the skin too!
