02.01.2019- Beauty Buys: Fresh Favourites

Now that the New Year is here, I’m sure that I’m not alone in thinking about which resolutions to make for the forthcoming twelve months. Whilst I’ve always been a bit reluctant to commit to making lists in the past, I’m having a good muse on what the next year has in store and what I would like to get out of it. As I get to grips with making plans, I’ve got a stash of new beauty bits primed and ready- because starting a new year with some fresh favourites is a sure way to kick things off on the right note: 

At the start of December, I took the plunge and treated myself to the full sized pot of Tata Harper’s Resurfacing Mask after getting on really well with a sample size last summer. Although it’s definitely teetering towards the luxury end of what I’d be prepared to spend on skincare, it really is worth it, especially as it offers a really gentle option for exfoliating skin- and at this time of year that’s something more necessary than normal. Another new addition to my daily routine comes in the shape of Glossier’s Stretch Concealer- something which I am loving, especially as it applies really easily and has some serious staying power too.

Next up- clinging on to those festive feelings for as long as possible with MAC’s Shiny Pretty Shadow, which packs a serious colour punch. Similarly, this Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow from Hourglass has a really wonderful payoff, and lasts right through until the end of the day. This shade (Reflect) is my new go-to first thing in the morning, and really complements a lot of my other favourite eye products too, especially the smokier shadows from Charlotte Tilbury. Another fresh addition to my day is this Innisfree lip balm, which lovely Elodie got me as a Secret Santa gift. Again, it stays put for ages, and the colour is perfect for everyday. This Soohyang Scented Beeswax Tablet is also a great addition to my dressing table- also from Elodie- with a wonderfully refreshing fragrance. Finally, although not strictly a beauty buy, this gorgeous necklace from Anthropologie was a birthday present from the best blogging babes out there- something I’ve had my eye on for ages and which I’m so happy to have added to my collection of jewellery.
