The Perfect Nude Lip

The Perfect Nude Lip

I recently picked up a new lip liner the other day from Rimmel, which is the first lip liner I've owned. I chose the shade Spice which is a warm toned brown shade. I was expecting the lip liner to be drying, but it really wasn't it had a matte finish, but it wasn't drying at all. As long as you moisturise you're lips before hand, i like to use my Nivea balms as they always work for me. Then I apply the lip liner all over my lips, firstly doing the outline and then filling them in. You could leave it here, the colour of the liner is very wearable on its own, but I like to go in with a lipstick. I usually use the MAC Blankety lipstick on top. Together they create the perfect nude lip and it lasts a long time as the lip liner makes sure it lasts long.

What's your favourite nude lip combination?

Beauty Favourites of 2015

Firstly, let me just say Happy New Year to you all! It's been a bit of an on and off year in terms of blogging for me, but that hasn't stopped me from finding some great beauty products throughout the year. Today's post is a yearly round up of my favourite products from 2015 - and what a great year it has been!

Starting with the base products, this year has been a new discovery of the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum. I finally bought it after hearing so many good things about it, and I have to say its an amazing foundation. I've also loved the Maybelline Baby Skin primer as it makes my makeup last a really long time, it also smells great which is a bonus. The Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer has been my favouirte concealer of 2015, it gives a brightening and glowy finish. The powder I've been using has been the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder. As always, my favourite brushes have been the Real Technique Brushes, the ones in the photo are the Multi-Tasking and Buffing Brush. Bronzer-wise, one of my favourites has been the Stila Bronzer, it's subtle and natural which I like.

I don't know how I ever used any other eyebrow product before I used the Soap and Glory Brow Archery, it's incredible. It is so simple to use which makes filling in eyebrows so easy. The best eyeshadow palette of 2015, for me, has been the W7 In the Nude palette, which is a dupe for the Naked 3 Palette. Although the pigmentation isn't as good quality, the shades are very pretty and wearable. I also recently discovered an amazing mascara, its the Maybelline Lash Sensational. My eyelashes are so curly and defined when I use this.

I have 3 lip favourites for 2015. The first one is MAC Patisserie, this is the most perfect lipstick as it is such a natural every day shade. The next lipstick is the L'Oreal Colour Riche in JLo's Nude, this again is the perfect nude shade. I have also loved the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Nudist, the formula of these are incredible.
