September Beauty Favourites...

I'm going to try and get back into doing favourites monthly, I've been picking up a lot of things recently so there is a lot of potential favourites coming up in the next few months. I've been getting back into a few things that I use to love and have forgotten about too which is always fun!

Mac Studio Fix Fluid £21.50 - An old favourite of mine, also my first Mac purchase ever. I went off this for a long time because the lady in Mac matched me wrong and the shade they matched me with was slightly too dark and too pink for me. However, since I have been tanning more I have been able to wear this again and warming up my skin with a bronzer balancing the pink tones out so it doesn't look too miss matched. I will be buying a different tone and shade though next time. Over all the foundation is great, it's a medium coverage ideal for oily skin types. 

Benefit Hoola Bronzer £23.50 - Probably the most perfect bronzer I've actually seen. I love the fact it's completely matte which makes it much more natural than a shimmery bronzer. The only negative I can think of with this bronzer is the packaging, because of the box shape it makes it difficult it get a big brush in there if you want an all over glow. It's quite a warm toned bronzer so it's not as ideal for contouring as cooler ones but I prefer this for an all over tanned look. 

Charlotte Tilbruy Dolce Vita Palette £38 - Another gorgeous product, very expensive and I do think you're paying for the packaging as well but the quality of the eye shadows is insane. They are just beautiful inside and out. If you're in the  market for a very luxurious fail safe eye shadow palette then this is it! I do think it's one of those things that is a perfect treat for yourself and all the shades are perfection. 

Mac Pro Longwear Eyeshadow in Uninterrupted £17 - I've gone on and on about this so much so I won't bore you again but you need this. Ideal for everyone and ignore how ugly it looks in the packaging because on the lid it is really unusually gorgeous.  

Chanel Illusion D'ombre Long Wear Luminous Eye Shadow in Mirage 95 £25 - I'm loving the eye products this month hey? Another really luxurious product but a really easy one just to apply with a finger tip and run out the door. You can wear this a number of different ways, under shadows, over shadows and it just works somehow always. Cream to powder finish but definitely apply a primer underneath otherwise it doesn't last as well. 

Seventeen Eye Eye Crayon in Motlen Metal £3.99 - Over all I don't think this is a great product but specifically I like to run this along my lower lash line for a pop of gold. I think it just looks really pretty and eye catching without clashing with any other make up btu just makes it more interesting. The cream is really creamy and the crayon makes it really easy to apply to the last line. 

Mac CremeSheen Glass in Floating Lotus £17.50 - I've also gone on about this a lot in the summer and it;s definitely coming with me into the Autumn. The reason that I'm so attracted to this lipgloss mostly is because you can apply it over whatever lipstick you want and it creates different looks each time. Even if the gloss doesn't match the lipstick it can still look really pretty. Also this is a great product to wear alone, it makes your lips look really voluminous and juicy because it's shimmery but doesn't make you look like a pornstar!

Daniel Sandler Watercolour Blush in Cherub - I think this has been the only blush I've put in my favourites, I'm just not a blush girl normally. Anyway, I'm head over heels in love with this product it's just perfect. whether you're a blush newbie or a profess then you need this in your collection, it's super buildable and gives you that natural flush look. 

Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush (in the eyes starter set) £18 - This is the best eye brush ever. Big claims I know. Anyway it makes eye shadow application really easy. If you're unsure about eye shadow and you want to make it as easy as possible try this brush. It just makes applying an over all base colour so easy and it doesn't apply too much which is the key to eye shadow application. It also blends as you apply but I still blend with a clean blending brush afterwards to make the edges cleaner. 

Seche Vite Top Coat £9 - I lived without this for a few months and didn't think I missed but but I recently repurchased it and I can't live without it again! I know there are some pretty bad health and safety concerns associated with it but I try and be as careful as I can with it, which just include ventilation. It makes polish dry almost instantly and look so amazing glossy, like you've had gels. 

Mac Lipsticks in Diva and Russian Red £15.50 - Finally two lip favourites. I have been gravitating towards these every time I fancy playing with my lip colour. They are a must have for every make up collection. They are both matte finishes which makes them more long lasting and they really stick it the lips. I don't find them drying at all but I know others have done. Russian Red is just the perfect Hollywood red which instantly makes you feel glamorous. Diva is really suitable for Autumn and I predict that we'll be seeing a lot of this around the next few months.
