Beauty Faves of 2016

Hello beauties,

Welcome to 2017! Crazy!!! A couple of weeks ago, I brought you my Best Beauty Finds of 2016, great beauty discoveries but not necessarily faves, click here to check them out. Now let’s talk about who made the cut!


Beauty Blender

Applying my foundation with a Beauty Blender is a must! Its vary rare that I use a brush to apply my foundation, however some foundations do work better when applied with a brush. For me the Beauty Blender is easy and creates the most flawless base ever! Click here for a comparison to the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.

MAC Eye Kohl- Teddy

I’ve been so time poor in the morning that I haven’t had time to wear eyeshadow on a daily basis. My go to when I’m running late is to apply some Teddy eyeliner to my top lash liner and waterline for some added definition.

Hylamide Photography Foundation*

This is a goldy toned liquid highlighter, but can be used mixed in with foundation or primer. Personally, I like it as a liquid highlighter as a base to my powder highlighter.

Moisturisers on Rotation

Hey beauties,

Are you like me and extremely fussy with face moisturisers? I always struggle to find a moisturiser I love, but turns out when it rains it pours! And now I have four favourites that I wanted to share with you. Disclaimer; I have oily to combination skin.


Antipodes Manuka Honey Skin Brightening Light Day Cream*

When I was going through my organic skincare phase, this was my go to. I love that its light weight, but still creamy and hydrating, without making me oily. I used this morning and night and found that my skin had a good amount of hydration. At night, I did add a few drops of facial oil for a boost of hydration. If you’re interested in organic skincare, or want a moisturiser that’s light and still rich than the Antipodes Day Cream is a must!

Skinstitut Moisture Defence Ultra Dry*

This moisturiser is targeted at dry skin, so I didn’t expect it to work for me. However it worked great with my oily/ combination skin! I use about a pea size in the morning and a bit more in the evening. I was also really surprised that even though this was a rich moisturiser targeted at dry skin, it didn’t make me oily throughout the day. I think this moisturiser would suit all skin types except extremely oily. Skinstitut also have the same moisturiser but targeted at oily skin, but I haven’t had a chance to try it yet.
