2013 Beauty favourites!

This year I have been  lot more interested in the world of beauty and blogging. It was the year I started to want to do my make up in the morning and i found it enjoyable. Years went by where I loved everything about beauty, magazines and watching tutorials but last year I decided to try make my make up look decent and try out so many brands to see what suited me. I have enjoyed every moment of blogging and hope to push my blog further this year as I just adore it.

I won't name all of the products but I will explain a few of my all time favourites this year. I adore Rimmel and find myself having so many products in my bag or make up bag this year, each and every product done by Rimmel I just fall in love with, the quality and they are just perfection and a dream to use for a drug store purchase. 

To start off with I will say that without my Real Technique brushes I could not have achieved any of my make up looks this year. My foundation glides on and with the help of the brushes it can look absolutely flawless, so much better than when I used to just slap it on. I use the powder brush to add my Bourjois bronzer and this helps me to have a perfect glow to my skin. I just adore these brushes and I am so pleased I purchased them earlier in the year. I know for a fact I will want more this year!

Another brand that stood out for me and I know will never let me down is Soap and Glory. Each and every product I purchased I was so pleased with. I adore the smell of the products and the quality and feel of them are just perfection. My all time favourite brand of 2013 I will have to say as each product never let me down.

I am a huge fan of collecting lip sticks and this year my collection grew and grew. I adore the mac lipstick Ruby Woo that Loulabeth purchased for me for a graduation present and any lipstick or gloss by Rimmel I just adored. each and every one I own I use all the time. Kate Moss lipsticks are just perfect, they feel great on the lips and they last for hours. 

I love a good eye shadow palette and I could collect so many but this year I had two palettes I used and re purchased many times. They are from Sleek and Mua, Mua I just adore it is super affordable and the palettes start in at £4 each, which I think is incredible. I just adore the quality of both products and the packaging on Sleek is perfection.

This year I tried out many drug store nail polishes but there was just one brand that stood out to me and that was Barry M. I adore the shine and quality of the gelly nails, I have so many and I use them every week to change up my nails. Pictured are my five favourite colours. Some for the Summer and some for the winter, I literally wore them non stop. 

My favourite foundation of the year defiantly goes to Revlon Photo Ready, It is the perfect colour and quality for my skin. It is affordable and I just cannot change up my foundation just yet. I used the Rimmel wake me up for months last year and that comes in at a close second but the Photo ready just is a perfect all rounder for me. It just feels great on my skin and hides all blemishes without being too heavy layered on. I also love to use the Collection concealer, the hype over this product is worth it, trust me. 

Hope you all have a great 2014!
