My Favourite Makeup Products!

Hello gorgeous!

My love for makeup is always growing, playing around and discovering new must haves in my makeup collection is just delightful. And with collecting makeup for the past few years, I have found my go to makeup products that just make me feel like a princess.



Let's get started..


#Base:



I have only recently started using primers and to be honest, I sometimes skip but when I want that princess-feel and a perfect face of makeup, I'll always reach out to the POREfessional primer by benefit. I love the smooth surface it gives my face, leaving it oil-free for quite a while and it makes all the difference.


For foundation, I'll either use Pro-Longwear liquid foundation by MAC which gives great coverage that lasts all day, or Superpower Double Face powder foundation by Clinique, which makes a great base, lightens up my face and gives enough coverage. I would not use both together because in my opinion, that's a big beauty mistake, but those are my two options depending on where I'm going, how much coverage I need that day and how long I want it to last.


For concealer, my ultimate favourite is Pro Longwear concealer by MAC. I am running low and I went to MAC the other day but they didn't have my shade so I'm being a little stingy with this, but I love it, I love how it hides all the unpleasant dark circles under my eyes and it just brightens up my face more than any other concealer I've tried.

#Cheeks




I love NARS when it comes to their blush. They have gorgeous colours that just feel so luxurious and look really pretty. I love the shade Orgasm which is a peachy pink, sort of coral, with a gold shimmer to it. It gives my face that warm look and it reflects beautifully on my eyes and I really love that!


Review (here)
I have been using this highlighter for quite sometime and I love how beautiful it can make even a simple face of makeup look, with its pink shimmery effect, it definitely makes all the difference. 

#Eyes



I have used several eye shadow primers but Urban Decay has got to be my favourite. It keeps everything on my eyes all day long and a little bit goes a long way so when I want to be creative with my eye shadow and just stay pretty all day or night, I leave it all to Urban Decay.


Just the way Urban Decay perfects their primers, they equally perfect their eye shadows. The Naked Pallete is basically the clothes to my eyes (how weird of me..) from day to day makeup to fancy, late night out makeup looks. Each shade is so pigmented and I just love creating new looks all the time. I was thinking about filming a few tutorials if you'd like to see them?



Lancome is easily on the top of my list when it comes to liquid eyeliners. I searched for this and I think it's no longer available. I just might have a teeny tiny panic attack when this finishes, but until then I'm loving it. That tiny bottle has lasted for so long and it's basically my makeup staple product. 


Review (here)

If a makeup product can top anything Lancome, it's bound to be good. A few months ago, Doll Eyes mascara by Lancome was definitely my lux mascara, but the length and volume BADgal lash gives my eyelashes makes it my favourite. It gives my lashes a falsies effect and I love it!

#Lips




Last but not least, a makeup look isn't complete without the perfect lips and I must say, I'm not a huge lipstick fan as I tend to go for lip glosses more but Lancome has done it again and this beige-peachy nude lipstick gives me pretty, shiny lips that just feel beautiful. 

And that is all for my complete luxurious, princess makeup go to's! I hope you enjoyed this post and I'll definitely do an updated post if this changes, but until then, this is what I love!

Until next time,

Sweater Weather Wishlist!

Hello gorgeous!

Fall and winter are all about cardigans, scarves, boots and snuggling up in cute sweaters. Layering and colour blocking are loads of fun, and styling is a piece of cake. 

Although loads of sweaters are in almost everyone's cupboard, mine, well, not so much. So, I'm planning to grow out my two-sweater collection and purchase some this winter.

Smiling Mickey & Minnie (here), Dino Rawr Pullover (here), Everyday Knit
 Top (here), Street Chic Lovely (here), Sequin Tiger Pullover (here)

I was scrolling around F21's site and have fallen in love with loads of their sweaters, but here's a few. They're great if styled well and they're perfect to just get cosy on the couch with a bunch of friends on a cold night! The Sequin Tiger pullover has got to be my favourite!

Do you have your eye on anything this winter? Let me know down below!

Until next time,

The Sweater Weather Tag!

Hello everyone!

What better way to get into the fall spirit than doing the Sweater Weather Tag? I haven't been tagged to do this but I just think it's fun so.. Let's get into it!




1. Favorite candle scent? 
This scent isn't fall/winter edition, but if you look into my photos, you'd see I'm quite obsessed with Lavender Vanilla from Bath & Body Works. I love the smell of lavender and just burning this candle gives me a warm cosy feeling which I absolutely love!




2. Coffee, tea, or hot chocolate?
Hmm.. I am a hardcore tea-addict, but I do switch to hot chocolate during the colder weather, I love the smell of it, and the warmth it gives my hands the whole time I'm sipping on it. A little bit of whipped cream and chocolate powder sprinkled on the top is a delight. Yum!

3. Which makeup trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner? 
Winged eyeliner! I could never pull off dark lips, and I really admire those who do effortlessly, but I'm a natural-lippy kind of girl all through the year.

4. Best fragrance for fall?
Best fragrance for fall.. I'll have to say my ultimate favourite would be Chanel no5, it is on the pricey side, but I love the scent of it, it has this really light scent that gets loads of compliments, it also stays on all day long. I've gone through about 3.





5. Most worn sweater?
I usually tend to snuggle up in cardigans when it gets cold, so I don't really wear sweaters or jumpers as much, but I am planning to have a little spending on some forever 21 sweaters which you'll see in a wishlist soon!

6. Must-have nail polish this fall?

I don't own this yet, but I have my eye on Shearling Darling by Essie. It's a gorgeous fall colour and I think it's one of those statement nail polish everyone has to have! 




7. Football games or jumping in leaf piles?

Well, I've never really jumped in a pile of leaves, as fun as it sounds. I'm a little paranoid and the thought of possible ants and insects on those leaves gives me the shivers. So, football games it is. I've actually been to a few and I do enjoy the excitement!

8. Skinny jeans or leggings?
I love properly fitted comfy skinny jeans, but I have recently switched to leggings. I'm now obsessed with warm, great quality (..I'm weird) leggings and my collection is slowly growing. Monsoon have amazing leggings, a little pricey but you could tell they'll last for a really long time!

9. Combat boots or 
Uggs?

Combat boots all the way. I love how edgy the make an outfit look and you can basically wear them with anything!

10. Favorite fall TV show?

This would be 90210 or Gossip Girl, but now that those are over and I'm quite lost, I do like The X Factor. 

I did skip a few questions as you can see, but I really enjoyed this tag, so if you've done it, link me down below, and if you haven't been tagged to do it, you could just say I tagged you! 


What's your fall fashion statement? Do you have any essentials?


Until next time,

Review: High Beam Luminescent + ChaCha Tint Cheek Stain

Hello lovely!

Time has been flying by in what feels like a blink of an eye and I have missed blogging to bits, so with the time I have in my hands, I'll try to entertain you as much as possible!




Reviews are my ultimate go-to's when I'm on the hunt for new products, so I'm here to review two of Benefit's top sellers, the High Beam Luminescent and the ChaCha Tint Cheek Stain. I purchased the TropiCORAL Lip and Cheek kit a while back and I would recommend getting a kit if you're interested in the Benefit products, just because you get several items that will most probably last a while and for the price of a full size version of one of the products you get in the kit, maybe even cheaper depending on the kit. 


High Beam Luminescent Complexion Enhancer by Benefit




This little beauty has been raved about by so many bloggers, YouTubers and beauty addicts, so when I saw it in the TropiCORAL kit, I just had to get it. High Beam is actually my first highlighter, but I'm happy to add it to my makeup collection, as well as my FOTD every now and then. First of all, how could a girly girl like me not fall for pink liquid with a sprinkle of shimmer in a Nail Polish pot? I cannot resist Benefit's packaging for some reason, and when the product is actually good, it's such a bonus! The formula in this is so amazing, working as a highlighting stain, it lasts all day and gives such a pretty glow that makes all the difference. It's easy to blend once you get the hang of it. I personally like blending it with my fingers rather than a brush because I think it gives my face a better glow. Also, the way you apply it on your cheeks completely changes how it turns out. I would repurchase this, but I think the full size is a bit too much so I'll be looking out for it in another kit!


ChaCha Tint Cheek Stain by Benefit




Since it took me a few seconds to take the first photo, I didn't blend as soon as applied, so it stained my skin.


I originally wanted to try Benetint which is a rosy red stain because well, I'm not a daredevil when it comes to colourful makeup, but to my surprise, the ChaCha tint has made it's way into a lot of my daily choices of makeup. I love the coral tint it gives my face, and how it enhances all my other features one way or another. It does last all day, but the only thing I don't like is how fast you have to be to blend it all in, otherwise it stains your skin and let's just say that appealing look you were going for is no longer appealing.. As it is waterproof, once it stains your skin, all the makeup on your face has to go as well to get it off. But, once you get the hang of it, it's an amazing product and I really like it. Just be warned if you're using it for the first time.

And that is all! I'm sorry this ended up to be a really long post, but if anything, it proves how much I miss blogging!

Do you have any favourite highlighters or cheek stains? What are they?

Until next time,
xoxo,
