Can you believe its the end of February? No…? Neither can I.
This month for me has been one of accomplishment, nourishment, ups and downs. But overall, its been good.
This month has been one of discovering my love of many things – Fitness, Food, Makeup, App’s and a few Lifestyle favs.
Lets Start with Makeup.
To be fair, I haven’t changed up my makeup very much at all recently. I have had to put my priorities elsewhere so my budget for makeup has all but dried up.
The one thing which is new however, is the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation. I have been a lover of the concealer from this range for quite some time, but had never tested out the foundation until now, and I love it. I apply it with a damp Real Techniques Sponge as I find this the quickest and most effective, for me. It gives an ‘almost dewy’ finish on my skin, which to be honest, I have never been a huge fan of, but this Summer I have found it to be so natural and flawless looking that the ‘not so matte’ look hasn’t crossed my mind.
The rest of my base this month, I have only really been drawn to the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in the lightest shade (Great for getting rid of those dark circles and also does a pretty good job of highlighting other parts of my face, without making everything turn into a cakey mess) and also the Australis Fresh and Flawless Pressed Powder to set down all of the above. This powder has become by go to powder. It sets my face so well and I don’t get any where near as shiny during the day which is great! (Bonus, its affordable!).
On the Lip front this month, the one to beat would have to be my Rimmel Lasting Finish Matte Lipstick by Kate #103 , which I find great as an everyday lip colour for work, not too pink, not too nude (On me) and funnily enough, not too Matte! It also has pretty great lasting power and as a bonus, this range of lipsticks smell AMAZING.
As for the rest of my face, Bronzer, Blush, Primer, Mascara.. etc. Nothing has really stood out.
I hope to see my makeup budget come back some time soon, as I am really hanging out for a few new bits and bobs! My “Wishlist” is endless it seems. Too many Youtube/ Blog recommendations, not enough money.
What are some of your Makeup must-haves at the moment? What have you been loving? I would love to know!
