It's the first monthly favourites of the year! How has the start of 2017 been for you all? I cant quite believe how quick January is whizzing past, it honestly scares me that the months go by so quickly! This month my beauty favourites mainly contains things that I was lucky enough to get for Christmas, I could of made this post an extremely long one as theres so many things I've been loving this month but I some how narrowed it down to a handful!
Firstly I've been obsessed with using my Too Faced Merry Macaroons Palette, my goodness it's such a stunning, good quality eyeshadow palette and it's crammed with shades that are perfect for everyday looks. My most reached for shades are definitely the top row and the 3 shades on the left had side row too, just beautiful! Sticking with the eyes I have fallen in love with Benefit's Roller Lash Mascara, it makes my lashes so long, defined, lifted and curled and doesn't smudge or flake on me at all, it's incredible and wont be leaving my makeup bag anytime soon.
For base makeup I've switched things up quite a bit recently and have fallen in love with my new routine. Firstly I drench my face in the Smashbox Priming Water, this stuff is amazing and not only does it prime the skin but you can use it as a setting spray too, I use it both ways and I've noticed a HUGE improvement with how my base makeup looks and lasts, I will definitely be buying the full size bottle of this very soon. For foundation I've gone back to my trusty MAC Face and Body, I just love how dewy and lightweight this foundation is and you can keep building it up to get the coverage you like. Benefit's Hoola Bronzer has become another makeup bag staple for me since Christmas, it's quite a bold statement for me to say I love a bronzer because I'm super fussy with bronzers but Hoola is gorgeous, it's matte, easy to blend and works with my skin tone really well.
To blend in my foundation and other base makeup I've been loving my Real Techniques Berlin Brush Set (review HERE) that I picked up in the boxing day sales, I've been getting so much use out of these brushes because the set contains 5 core brushes that can be used in many different ways, my favourite is the buffing brush. Lastly this month I have been obsessed with the Lush Snow Fairy Body Conditioner, I slather this on every night at the moment and in the morning my skin is so soft and smells insanely good, it's like I'm wearing Snow Fairy perfume, mmm!
What have you been loving this month beaut's?? I'd love to know
