Today as it’s the end of January I thought I would do an overview of my current favourites for the month of January.
Firstly I’ve been loving MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in ‘Creme Cup’ it’s been my go to lipstick for everyday if I am going out, apart from school obviously. It’s easy to apply and isn’t sticky or dry which I find with MAC’s matte lipsticks.
Another thing I’ve been loving is the Revolution, Redemption Palette Iconic 2, it was a cheap purchase from Superdrug and I’ve been in love for the last couple of months. I love the variety of shades it contains and I’ve actually been grabbing this one to do my eye makeup every day rather than my MAC Brownluxe Palette.
For mascara I’ve been loving ‘Full ‘N Soft’ by Maybelline I’ve had this for a while however I haven’t used it and when emptying my makeup train case I found it again and fell in love with it. It really accentuates your lashes and doesn’t make them feel heavy at all. I fell in love with this and have been reaching for this throughout January.
For foundation I’ve been using a combination of my Maybelline ‘Super Stay 24H’ in ‘Light Beige’ foundation and my Maybelline ‘Fit Me’ foundation in shade ‘120’. I use two pumps of each onto the back of my hand, blend and then apply with a beauty blender. This is because my skin isn’t as pale as the SS24H foundation however not dark enough for the FM foundation so the combination of both make it a perfect match.
My favourite eyeliners have been both by Maybelline firstly Masterpiece Precise which is a liquid liner and secondly Lasting Drama Black Shock which is a gel liner. I recently run out of my MPP so I started reaching for my LDBS again and been loving it however the gel is more messier and harder to apply as it is very hard to correct if you make a mistake however it’s true to it’s name and lasts a very long time.
Finally my last beauty related favourite is my Duo-Fiber Real Technique brushes. I’m always reaching for my duo-fiber eye brush and duo-fiber contour brush, however I don’t use my face brush as much as the others.
My music for January has been quite a long list however I have picked my ultimate January favourites.
My all time favourite for January has to be One Direction ‘Four (Deluxe)’ album. I’ve never been a fan of One Direction to be honest however my instincts told me to stop fighting against listening to them and keep an open mind, (as well as school friends such as Evie and Abi telling me about it) and I am glad I listened to both my instincts and my friends as I have been in love. ‘Night Changes’, ‘Fools Gold’, ‘Act My Age’, ‘Fireproof’ and ‘Steal My Girl’ have been my favourites from the album however I love them all.
From One Direction I’ve also been loving ‘You & I’ and ‘They Don’t Know About Us’. There’s something that just calms be about it and it’s actually a really nice choice of songs so definitely check them out. I suggest if you have always had the idea of not really liking One Direction just keep an open mind and go and have a listen. I’m now in love especially with Harry and Zayns vocals. But overall of course all their vocals are fabulous.
Another song/album I’ve been loving is ‘My Everything (Deluxe)’ by Ariana Grande with my favourites being ‘Love Me Harder’, ‘My Everything’ and ‘Just A Little Bit Of Your Heart.’
From ‘Caustic Love‘ by Paolo Nutini I’ve been loving ‘Better Man’
and of course Arctic Monkeys are on the list with ‘I Wanna Be Yours’, ‘Do I Wanna Know’ and ‘Arabella’ from AM and ‘When The Sun Goes Down’ from ‘Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not’
‘Legally Blonde – The Musical Soundtrack‘ what else can I say, I love jamming out to ‘So Much Better’, ‘Whipped Into Shape’, ‘Serious’ and ‘What You Want’ in my bedroom.
Finally my last song is ‘Naive’ by The Kooks which is on their album ‘Inside In / Inside Out’.
