When it comes to skincare, I usually opt for products that will add hydration and transform my lacklustre skin. The Aesop Fabulous Face Oil uses a concoction of juniper berries, jasmine and ylang ylang to prevent blemishes and promote glowing, supple skin. After purchasing this many months ago I haven't put it down and it has taken pride of place in my collection ever since. Although this helps to inject some well needed moisture back into my skin, I still needed an eye cream to help heal my dry, irritated eyes. The Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment was a product I discovered many moons ago, but I recently dug it back out after no other eye cream lived up to it's standards. This lightweight, yet thick, nourishing cream is fast absorbing and doesn't migrate into the eyes - Everything you need.
As for makeup I have been loving lately, the Nars Copacabana Illuminator; a pearlescent highlighter that adds a subtle sheen, making my skin glow on even the dullest of days. To finish I like to add a dusting of the Balm's Mary Lou Manizer over the cream highlighter in order to emphasis on my contour and the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Luminous Flush to add a wash of colours to my cheeks.
I seem to go through eyeshadow and mascara like there's no tomorrow at the moment, so there's been a few that I have rediscovered. In the Summer, the Charlotte Tilbury Eyes To Mesmerise in Bette was my go-to shade, but due to it's cream formula I retired it come September. The bronzed, copper shade is easy to blend and looks divine under a mixture of eyeshadows including my Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Palette, a quad that has been at the top of my Muji drawers for the last couple of months.
As a lipstick hoarder, I tend to rotate my lipsticks seasonally; switching up the corals and pinks for the reds and nudes come Winter. The Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella; a vivid blue toned red and Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in Berry Couture; a subtle plum, have been the two lip products I haven't put down as they're both suitable for the festive season.
