Beauty: Current Faves

Believe it or not, the above two photos were taken within minutes from one another and both in the same room, and neither were taken with the lights on. Ah, the magic of sitting by the window vs not haha.

Today was a day where I felt a rare burst of productivity and energy when I woke up and I liked the way my skin looked after having done my 5-step Korean skincare routine (okay so it’s more like 5-7 steps depending on when you do it) so I decided to put on some make-up. And take this opportunity to write about a few of my favourite products.

In these pictures I am wearing:

No Poreblem Primer (part of the Korean skincare routine)
Billion Dollar Brows Mad About Brows eyebrow liner*
Lord & Berry Line/Shade eyeliner in Dark Black*
Annayake 24hr Nude Moisturizing Veil in Clair (kinda like BB Cream – it’s very lightweight, comes out dark but then magically matches your skin tone once on)*
– Physicians Formula Bronze Booster (apparently discontinued – similar)*
– Shu Uemura Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte lipstick in shade 342
– Mac Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul
Blinc Mascara
Items marked * were gifted to me back when I worked in the industry (yep, they’re old. I probably shouldn’t be using them but I like them and don’t want to waste them) and to be honest, I never knew the value of these until now. Oh my gosh some of them are PRICEY O_O

But we’re not here to talk about all of those. We are here to talk about these three beauties:

The last 3 on my list; I absolutely adore these and I’ll tell you why.

Retail Therapy

It’s quite rare that I ever get a weekend here in London.
Previously every weekend I had free was spent jetting back to my home-home in Coventry for driving lessons, and eventually my driving test a couple of weeks ago (I passed!  Hooray!).
So on a rare and wondrous occasion where I am both in London and the weather is actually decent for once, it’s time to go out and about for a bit.

A Bag Of Beauty(con)!

Recently my super talented friend & Women’s Fashion Editor for a variety of publications, Emma Cooke, spent her time gallivanting around London Fashion Week.   Of course, she ended up with tickets to all of the after parties, and being an amazing friend, she invited me as her +1 to one of them as well: Beautycon.

I had a helluvanamazingtime, drank a very happy amount, scoffed some sweeties, nabbed myself a goodie bag, and took altogether way too few photos.  Not pictured are: photo booth, DJ, bar, SWEETS TABLE, the actual location with chandeliers and posh bathrooms that I really should have researched.  Apparently it was a swish place.  Sending me there was pretty much like putting a pig in a castle.  Sadly no real appreciation for it whatsoever.

But I met some famous people! :)
