18 BEAUTY MUST TRIES FOR 2018


This year is the start of some seriously saving and a spending ban for me as i'm buying a house that is due to be ready in May and then I will be forking out monthly for a mortgage. Although I won't be spending too much money a girl can dream about the products I'd love to try and this year there are some stand out products being released and others that I have been wanting to try forever.

CURRENT FAVOURITE EYESHADOW PALETTES


I was sorting through my makeup collection recently and realised I own way too many eyeshadow palettes so I don't think i'll be buying more anytime soon. You can probably sense from this collection of palettes that I tend to go for neutral palettes and I wear these type of shades everyday. This post features all of the new palettes I have been using a lot recently.

CONCEALERS THAT KEEP MY EYES LOOKING BRIGHT


When using a concealer I need it to be brightening and good coverage to help conceal my dark circles. My collection is a lot bigger than this but these are the ones I reach for often as they give me everything I need. I like to mix it up between drugstore and high end as you can always find gems in both.

THE NEW HIGHLIGHTERS I'M LOVING


I love highlighters, anything with a shimmer that will make my skin glow is a must for me. That means I am always buying highlighters and my collection is pretty big right now. This post is all about the new highlighters in my collection and the ones I am using a lot at the moment.

GETTING THROUGH THE JANUARY BLUES


The January blues are real and they are hitting me hard at the moment. The cold weather and depression after christmas are tough at the moment and they are not helped by the fact that my parents are heading to South Africa for 4 weeks soon and I'll be stuck at home in the cold. This year is going to be a big one for me and my boyfriend as we are buying a house and it's just a waiting game for it to be built, we have been given a date for May so it's now a waiting game and lots of saving to do. Today's post is some of the tips I am using to help get me out of this rut.

THE SHIMMER LIP TREND


This is one trend i'm happy is around and hope it stays. I'm a massive highlighter fan and now I can add that to my lips with all of these gorgeous lip products that can be added to other lipsticks or worn on their own. These come in a metallic, shimmer and holographic look and really add something different to lips.

NEW SKINCARE BITS


I don't buy as much new skincare as I do makeup but I do like to change up my routine and try out new products. Today's post is a run down of the products I have been recently trying out and helping me combat the recent breakout i'm having due to all the bad foods this Christmas.

NEW BRANDS I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO TRYING IN 2018


In 2017 I really expanded my makeup collection and tried lots more from some brands that have now become favourites of mine, including Tarte, Becca, Huda Beauty, Jouer and many more. Next year there are a number of brands I have tried a few bits from that I need to try more from and others on my radar that I still need to try products from.
