2018 was the year that I wanted to take better care of myself, both physically and mentally. I must admit whilst I have been making lots of positive changes, with 3 children, a part time job and a blog it is hard to make time for myself.
However I have been making a lot more effort with my outfits (most days!) and beauty regime. I have always loved fashion but not so much beauty products – however now, and maybe that’s because I am getting a little older, I am a little obsessed with all things creams, make-up, and all those magic potions that help me feel a little more like me.
I have trying out so many different foundations, I seem to find one that I am happy with, but then a few months after wearing it my skins starts to dry out a little. So I have been buying a few different ones and changing them every couple of weeks. The brands that I use tend to vary from cheaper supermarket brands to high end designer products.I have found from a lot of experimenting that it is not always the most expensive products that work the best!! One of my absolute favourites is the Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid – it is such a nice texture, not too thick and it gives great coverage. I also use NARS all day luminous weightless foundation which I really like for a night time look and I also like Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation (although I have heard amazing things about Estee Lauder Double Wear Light so that is definitely next on my list to buy!)
I have also been making sure that I moisturise every single day including using a night cream – sounds easy enough but honestly by the time bedtime comes I am ready to drop, although when I do use it I definitely notice the difference. Similar to my make up I try to use different products on my skin every couple of weeks. My favourites are Tegoder Perfect Skin Mineral Cream which feels lovely on my skin. I also love the Boots No 7 Protect and Perfect products.
This year I have finally gotten around to changing my contact lenses. I worked with Feel Good Contacts earlier on in the year reviewing some of their Daily contacts and I have loved them so much I have ordered some more. They are so much more comfortable and more convenient to use!
What about you? Do you have any beauty products that you absolutely love?
