Monthly favorites are my favourite posts, both to read to and to write. They are also the main cause of my very extensive wish list. So I thought why not make them a bit more regular - daily would have been too much so I settled with weekly. So welcome to my Weekly Loves! It should also help with one of my new years resolutions which is to start switching up my everyday products.
The Bourjois Healthy Mix Radiance Reveal Foundation was a close companion of mine over the summer months and I now find myself reaching for this most mornings to mix with my beloved Double Wear. Going half and half with these two foundations gives my complexion a lovely healthy glow and despite it being full coverage, it looks perfectly natural.
Also to give my skin a bit of a boost in the glow department I have been loving the Origins Drink Up-Intensive Overnight Mask. A firm favourite in my skincare stash, this has been out shining all of my other products by turning my dull, dry skin into a hydrated and glowing (plus much easier to work with) base.
Besides trying for a more summery base, I am still in love with the plum hues that coincides with the colder weather. Being the only blush that is not pink, peach or a combination of them both in my collection, MAC Azalea Blossom blush has been getting a lot of attention recently. The purple half of this blush accompanies a berry-toned makeup look beautifully... not to mention how pretty it looks in the pan?
To go along side this I have kept things simple - lip-wise, meaning that the KORRES Lip Butter in Jasmine has been my best friend.
Just as it did last year, Christmas 2013 saw Essie Leading Lady adorning my nails right up until the new year. This is a pretty special polish, not just for the festive feeling it brings but the red glitter that runs throughout always has compliments rolling in. Unless something better comes along, I predict this may be my Christmas manicure of 2014 as well.
