2017 Beauty Favourites: My Most Used Products Of The Year

As a beauty blogger I try out a *lot* of make up; receiving exciting new launches and getting to play with products is one of the best parts of my job. As I have new and interesting things arriving all the time, I tend to be a bit of a floozy with my products, jumping from one to the next fairly regularly. But as I looked back over blog posts and instagram selfies from the past year I noticed a few products that cropped up time and again, some products that I tended to reach for more than others, ones that found a permanent place on my dressing table. So here, for your reading pleasure, are my 2017 Beauty Favourites.

My Own Kind Of ‘Summer Ready’: How I Boost My Confidence

There are few phrases that stick in my craw as much as ‘summer ready’. It is often used to imply the panic and pressure women feel to lose half their body weight, remove every strand of hair below the neck, and have perfect, glowing skin so they can follow the ubiquitous ‘just throw on some BB cream’ make up tutorials. Let’s all eye-roll together.

This year I’m rejecting all that nonsense. I have put together my picks of products that help me to just feel that little bit more confident… with no rice cakes in sight.

FRIDAY FAVES: Matilda, Malice and Mulder

I really love doing these Friday Faves, I’m enjoying them so much more than the previous monthly favourites format. I feel like I can put in new discoveries and smaller, fun things that would have probably been pushed out of a big monthly summary. I hope you’re enjoying them too!

A quick update: Instead of ‘monthly favourites’ I’m going to shift to ‘current favourites’ to give me a bit more freedom with how often I can do them. Today’s video includes some autumn-appropriate make up, volumising luxury haircare, a brand new nail varnish, an unexpected fragrance and some great TV programme recommendations for you. I hope you enjoy my current favourites #1!
