Contouring palettes, Stila blushers and new MAC cosmetics

Last week I was really poorly and despite feeling better than I have in months my body clearly wasn’t having any of it and I broke out in horrendous shingles down my body.  Whilst the discomfort was unbearable it did mean that the nights I couldn’t sleep I got to browse loads of amazing blogs, YouTube tutorials and magazine articles about new beauty products.  In particular contouring palettes, concealers and spring palettes.

I don’t claim to be any kind of make up expert of rank myself up there as a beauty blogger but I know what I like and I know how I like my makeup to look.  There isn’t a day that goes by without me wearing my make up, it is part of me and I feel polished and professional when I wear it and believe that there is no excuse for not having time to do your make up on a daily basis.  The amount of products on the market now from good coverage BB creams to gorgeous face tanning gels you can add to your moisturiser it is really easy and quick to manage just one or two things in the morning.

New beauty buys from Eye of Horus and Barry M

When we head into autumn I like to update my make-up box with a few new beauty buys to go with the change in season and the change in colours that I wear.  It’s great to see my favourite shade of plums and maroons on the high street this year for fashion and I love the opportunity to wear a deep cherry nail varnish as I think they make nails look ultra glam without being too vampy.

So what’s ended up in my make-up box this month?  A trip into Superdrug revealed the new range of Barry M Gliterrati nail varnish.  All lined up on the shelf they looked absolutely beautiful and perfect for the forthcoming party season.  My favourites are Starlet and Rockstar and I might have ended up buying them all just to see what they were like!  Priced at £3.99 they’re a great quick update and won’t break the bank.

Goddess mascara and luscious locks – my beauty treats this month

I’ve had a lot of lovely beauty and skincare goodies sent to me over the last few weeks; it’s lovely to get to test out these products as a lot of them are things I read about and would love to buy but being on a limited income don’t splurge on.  They are the things that often make my ‘wish list’ and if I am lucky may appear in my Santa sack this year if I am a good girl come Christmas eve.  So what have I had this month and what has been my favourite beauty treat?
