Beauty: July Beauty Favourites ft Kiehls, Violet Voss, Urban Decay and Charlotte Tilbury

Saturday, August 12, 2017

I feel like I have been a really bad blogger lately as the time has just seemed to run away with me. I’ve had my 23rd birthday and I’ve been to not 1, not 2 but 3 weddings in 9 days (and different locations) so its been a pretty busy couple of weekends… however I’m back and with a new blog post (yes!)
One thing I’ve carried on loving is make up (obviously) and I have some great new additions to my make up collection but also some favourites, which have been there what feels like a very long time now. This months favourites includes Kiehls, Violet Voss, Urban Decay, Charlotte Tilbury, L'Oreal and Benefit.

Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate 50ml - £49.50   
Lets start with Kiehls, for what feels like about 2 months now I’ve been obsessed with Kiehls products and my ultimate favourite which I am sure I’ll be using for as long as I shall live is the midnight recovery concentrate. I use this once I’ve removed my make up at night with the ClarinsPure Melt Cleansing GelI love the lavender smell of the oil and how a little goes a long way. I always wake up in the morning with super hydrated and plump skin. 

After I’ve used my midnight recovery concentrate, I use my creamy avocado eye cream from Kiehls (obviously) and apply this under my eyes. This eye cream was designed by MTV’s Staying Alive Amabassador Leona Lewis, which makes the packaging stand out so much, and £10 from every sale goes straight to the charity. I’ve been using this about a month now and my eye bags have reduced (significantly) and are 100x more hydrated and moisturised.
 Kiehls Daily Reviving Concentrate 30ml - £38*
In the morning, I use the daily reviving concentrate and I adore this. I apply 1 or 2 drops of this onto my face first thing in the morning to wake up my skin but also as a base before I apply my makeup before I go to work.

After applying my Kiehls daily reviving concentrate I use my Urban Decay colour correcting concealer in peach underneath my eyes to hide any dark circles before I use foundation and concealer. I have used a whole tube of this (this ones my 2nd one) that’s how much I like it!

I am absolutely obsessed with this concealer from Benefit. It’s one of there new additions but I’ve been using this about 6-8 weeks now and every time I’ve applied make up. I like using this with my beauty blender but it also works really well with a concealer brush. It’s got a whipped formula so it is really easy to blend and helps reduce the appearance of pores.

As well as the Boing Airbrush Concealer, I use the original Boing concealer to carve out my eyebrows once I’ve filled them in. This is super high coverage and with a concealer brush, this concealer gives the perfect sharp line underneath my brow. I also use this to cover any spots or noticeable pigmentation.

Next up is the new edition to L’Oreal’s mascara range and I can’t quite make my mind up about this. Sometimes I’ll use this and my lashes will look incredible and sometimes I can use this and my lashes look bulky and stuck together, so despite loving and hating this product, I think I’ll be going back to my Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara.

This lipstick was a present from my other half for my birthday – how good is he?! I love Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks and this is a stunning dark burgundy colour. I love how moisturising and pigmented the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks are and I can’t wait to add (even more) to my collection.
Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette - £39.50

So I’ve just gone back on my blog posts to see when I first posted about this palette and I wrote a whole post on this HERE. I have used this palette every single day since then without fail and I genuinely don’t think I’ve ever loved a makeup palette SO much. I adore all the colours and shades and It’s perfect for creating daytime and nighttime looks with. My most used colours are Chaser and He Devil but I also love using Dirty Talk!
Violet Voss x Nicol Concilio Palette - £43 from Cult Beauty
Lastly, the newest palette to my beauty collection, which was again a birthday present and it’s the Nicol Concilio x Violet Voss palette and let me tell you this palette is absolutely incredible. I’ve also done a whole blog post about this palette which you can read HERE especially if you want to see swatches!

I really want that urban decay naked heat palette, but I ordered one and it arrived smashed! Send it back for a replacement and they gave me a refund instead..kind of gave up until I see it in a shop as clearly I am not supposed to get it yet! xx
