Beauty Items I've been loving lately


I'm always trying out new makeup and beauty products so it takes a lot for something to make the cut into every day use. I've been making more of an effort with my makeup stash recently and there's a few bits I've been going back to time and time again. There is only one product that is particularly pricey so grab your Boots card and getting shopping! 






I don't care what anyone says, this concealer is incredible and it's been my holy grail for years. My shade is fair so it's a pain to get hold of sometimes so I have to buy in bulk but it's so worth it. It blends effortlessly into my skin with a brush or beauty blender and it just completes my base for me. I would never be without the Lasting Perfection Concealer. 

I love a bronzer and the Sunkissed Collection by Clarins features my new fave. The bronzer and blush compact is huge, featuring three bronzing shades plus a blush. I've been grabbing this daily to dust some colour over my face and I love the finish. The pretty palm print is starting to wear which breaks my heart a little but I love the results so much. 

I've spoken of my love for Seventeen many times. The products are fab and the prices are even better. I've never been a liquid highlighter fan as I'm too heavy handed but I do reach for this one much more than I realised to add a dewy glow. The way I use this, is by mixing it with my foundation. I pump some foundation on to the back of my hand followed by a pump of this. It gives my skin a healthy glow which is exactly what it needs at the moment. 
I am never without lip balm and I always had a pot of Vaseline in my bag growing up. Over the years, I've moved away from petroleum jelly and invested in my lip care properly. I use the Sebamed Lip Defence every day as it contains SPF 30, helps keep my lips soft and smooth and it costs next to nothing! It's my ultimate lip care bargain. 

This was the first makeup brand I ever used and Peach Melba was always hidden in the depths of my makeup bag. Most recently I've been using Pink Cloud as it gives my skin a pretty pink sheen which is perfect for spring. The blushers are such good value and the products last really well on skin too. I've been reaching for this almost daily to give a flush to my cheeks.

What are your favourite beauty items at the moment?

  1. You can't beat the Collection concealer for how well it works and for the price. I will always repurchase this one. That Clarins bronzer looks gorgeous and the Natural Collection blusher shade looks really pretty for the Summer too xx
