January Favourites

January beauty favourites, best products of january, must try beauty products, beauty blogger, skincare, foundation

January was an interesting month. With the excitement of the holidays and New Year being over, it kicked off to a slow start but started to get more exciting as the days went on. I did some travelling this month where I was in Istanbul for a week and the rest of the time I've been home in London. The weather has been getting quite cold here lately so I'm glad that we're slowly moving towards the warmer months!

In terms of beauty, I've been using the beauty gifts I got for Christmas which I've been absolutely loving. Whenever I usually write a monthly favourites I'll focus primarily on beauty, but I want to switch things up. My monthly favourites will still feature products I've been loving, but also take a direction towards more everyday and lifestyle features - e.g drinks/food I'm loving to even something I've seen and wanted to share.

Armani Luminous Silk Foundation | shop here

This foundation has been one of my favourite for years. Towards the end of last year, I was trying and testing out some new foundations so this one kind of got neglected. When I started using it again it made such a difference to the way my make up looked and I've been loving it lately.

Nars Creamy Radiant Concealer | shop here

Whenever someone asks me to recommend them a concealer, it’s always this one. It does exactly what it promises: the consistency is creamy and leaves a radiant sheen to the skin. The best part of this concealer is the coverage: I wasn’t expecting it to cover as much as it does when I first started using this which is a great bonus.

Mac Paint Pot in Soft Ocre | shop here

I had been wanting to try out this eyeshadow primer for a while now as it had great reviews on it, and it's quickly become my everyday staple. I apply this before my eyeshadow and it gives me a canvas to work with which makes my eyeshadow stay on much longer and leaves the colour looking much more pigmented.

Mac Viva Glam Lipstick II | shop here

This is one of my go-to nude lipsticks. I actually did pick this up this month after wanting it for a while and I love it - it's a very nude kylie jenner-esque lipstick. The best part about this lipstick is that every purchase goes to the Mac Aids foundation, so you're shopping for a good cause!

Mac Lipgloss in Deelight | shop here

Over the last few months I've stayed away from lipgloss and just kept to my lip liner & matte lipstick routine. I used to love wearing lipgloss and since picking up this one from Mac, I've been loving wearing them again.

Everyday trainers: Nike Juvenate | SHOP HERE

I've been living in these trainers this month - I wear them on days I don't work out more often than the days that I do as they're super comfortable and go with everything.

Skincare Saviour: Kiehls Moisturizer | SHOP HERE

My skin was getting really dry at the beginning of this month and the moisturiser I was using previously just wasn't doing the job, so I decided to purchase this Kiehls one and it's great. I've noticed that it's really made a difference to the appearance of my skin, especially when I apply make up. I also love that it's fragrance free so it's great if you have sensitive skin.

Drink: Iced Chai Tea Latte

Call me crazy but I'm that person that still drinks iced drinks in the Winter. I recently branched out from my all time favourite drink (Iced caramel latte - heavenly) and I've been loving this alternative for Winter. Try it and let me know what you think!

What are some of your favourites from the month? A xx
