January Favourites

How are we in February already? 

January, for me, has literally flown by. From university coursework, to applying for work placements, all whilst squeezing in a precious visit from my boyfriend, it's safe to say I haven't really stopped. With a little break from all of that now, I'm feeling excited about what February will bring. One good thing about January is getting to try out lots of new products and refreshing my makeup bag. So, here are my favourite products from the past month...

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light // Ah, this is my new little baby. I still can't get over how gorgeous it is. I just love the luxurious packaging, not to mention the beautiful finely milled formula. It's a gorgeous light peach shade which gives my skin a lovely sunkissed glow, and it certainly doesn't give me a cake face like other powders sometimes do. It does ever so slightly darken my natural complexion, which I personally like, as I do enjoy looking a little sunkissed and glowy. I can tell that this powder will look absolutely stunning during the summer when I have more of a tan.

Morphe M500 Brush // I've been loving this brush to apply the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powder with. It's so soft and fluffy and isn't dense at all, which makes sure that I don't apply too much powder and get an even coverage. It's also great for sweeping away any fallout from eyeshadow, but also for applying makeup in a very subtle way if I'm swaying towards a 'no makeup' makeup look.

No7 City Light Tinted Moisturiser // I've spoken about this before and I still absolutely love it. This stuff really hydrates my skin, evens out my complexion and makes my skin look healthy and glowing. It's great for days when I'm in a rush as it literally takes seconds to apply. A layer of this and a bit of concealer and I'm ready to go!

NYX Lip Liner in Natural // This lip liner is such a versatile shade and goes with pretty much any lipstick over top. It's not too warm and not too cool and is just an all round great everyday nude shade. It's not quite as long lasting and creamy as NYX's Slide On lip liners, however I still love it nonetheless. I also have this lip liner in the shade Mauve which is stunning, however this is the shade I've been reaching for most throughout January.

Benefit Gimme Brow in Light 1 // I received this in a Benefit set I got for Christmas and I've used it pretty much every day since. I can't get over how good this product is at making my brows look fuller and more shapely, yet not looking over the top. This shade is also a perfect match for my natural brow colour, and it's often very hard for me to find an exact match. I'll definitely be picking up a full size version when this little one runs out.

MAC Lipsticks in shades Blankety & Honeylove // I absolutely love MAC lipsticks and am slowly building up a lovely collection. I received these two shades for Christmas and was so excited about them, as I'd been lusting after both of them for months. Blankety is an amplified creme, and is the most beautiful nude pink beige shade, which I've been reaching for time and time again for everyday wear. Honeylove is a gorgeous matte light nude beige lipstick with pinky undertones. Blankety goes amazingly with pretty much any eye look, however Honeylove does go particularly nicely with warm toned eyeshadows.
