February Favourites

Beauty Products

March is here, so it's time for a few February favourites! I don't have many this month as I haven't tried many new things recently. Living in London has definitely meant my spending habits have had to change! 

Two of these favourites are actually ones I've have had for a while and rediscovered. First up is the MAC Soft and Gentle highlighter. My friend Fliss, who blogs at Fifty Two Fridays, has this highlighter and I kept complimenting her on how great it looks and then realised I had it in my stash! It isn't the most subtle highlighter but it gives such a lovely sheen, and also works really great as an eyeshadow. The second rediscovery is the Nars Isolde eyeshadow duo, I remember buying this because of Zoella mentioning it in one of her really really old videos. It is a gorgeous duo with two orange-y shades, which doesn't sound very wearable but I have blue eyes and orange toned shades work really well with blue eyes. 

A newer favourite is the Kevyn Aucoin sculpting powder. This purchase was influenced by Anna from Vivanna Does Makeup. I was looking to buy a contour but I was a bit scared of the cream contours as I generally haven't got on well with cream cheek products in the past. This product makes a great contour as it doesn't have any orange tones in it so can create a really realistic shadow colour. I was discussing contour products with people at work and it seems most people are scared of looking 'muddy' which I definitely am too, but I think it would be really difficult to go wrong with this product. You need to use a light hand and start with a small amount of product, as we all know you can always add more but it's hard to take excess off.

So not that many favourites this month, but hopefully this month I will find some new products to share with you.

Hope you've all had a great February!
