January was all about updating my beauty and make up routine. Trying new pieces whilst stocking up on old favourites.
There are so many new “trends” I almost find it hard to keep up. I hear stripping is the new strobing but I’ve barely got to grips with contouring.

So on that note, here’s what grab my attention and got me reaching for more.
Charlotte Tilbury
Charlotte Tillbury seems to be the ‘IT’ make-up brand of the moment, there’s no hiding from it. After finding myself in the Covent Garden store by mistake “oh we’ll just have a quick peep in” – I end up leaving with a bag of goodies. ‘Bitch Please’ lipstick and ‘Pink Venus‘ lipliner.
A special blend of waxes means this lipstick is a dream to use and glides over your lips without leaving them feeling dry. Perfect for winter.
Make up BrushesAn oldie and a newbie. It was time to update my tired brushes and these are the first of many to be updated. My Real Techniques Expert Face Brush is a firm favourite, something I’ve bought time and time again.
New to the collection, a Nars contour brush. I wanted something smaller that my Real Techniques Powder Brush to perhaps attempt contouring and I must say I’ve really enjoying using it and trying to be a lot more accurate with my bronzer and blush.
YSLThis month I was lucky enough to test the iconic YSL Touche Éclat Foundation with a new advanced formula.
“Offering even more coverage and longer staying power while feeling weightless on skin.
The magic light-reflecting formula, a signature element in our iconic Touche Eclat concealer pen, provides the ultimate radiance for your complexion, plus it now comes in 22 shades.”
I really liked two colours, BD 10 for my natural day look & B30 for when I’m a little more tan or going out.
It hasn’t been drying on my skin at all which is great for winter but it also gives a great coverage which definitely can be build-able. I usually apply with my real techniques face brush & buff one pump, which normally covers all I need.
Launches today (1st February 2016)
oliverbonasoliverbonasBonjour Oliver Bonas. I’m totally obsessed with their homewear and check out these little accessories. ‘Bonjour Heart Foil Printed Pouch‘ & ‘Hand & Nail Cream.’ I’ve been carrying this in my handbag to winterproof my hands during this cold windy weather. FYI – it smells divine.

If you haven’t tried Philip Kingsley hair
products I can’t stress enough amazing they are. I can really feel the
difference between them and other hair products which normally leave my hair feeling really heavy and sticky where as these
really do give my hair more bounce and softness. Sold? You should be.
