January Favourites - Beauty

I haven't got a lot of new beauty favourites this month. I've been working a lot which hasn't really led to opportunities to try anything new. I never want to risk trying new makeup items on workdays because there's always the risk that I'll end up looking like a hot mess by lunchtime. 

 If strong brows are your thing then the ABH Dipbrow Pomade is perfect for you. If I wanted a more subtle brow look then I would probably veer towards something else from my collection. Personally, I love a strong brow and I've been reaching for this everyday. I'm in the shade Auburn and one thing I really love is that it doesn't need setting. 

Charli XCX x Impulse teamed up towards the end of last year to release two body fragrances. I'm so annoyed that these are limited edition because I'm obsessed. I think Vanilla Kisses is my favourite of the two, just because the scent lingers a little longer but I love Rock & Love almost as much. 

The Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation and Bourjois Healthy Mix Concealer are my current go-to face combo. Once set with powder these two are pretty long lasting. They've been lasting me through a long working day which isn't something that a lot of my makeup collection can boast.

I'm not massive on primer and I know it doesn't make much sense to wear an illuminating primer with a matte foundation but I find the Diamond Heart Base Primer by Emite Makeup really helps stop my foundation from clinging to dry patches. 

I'm a classic ginge in that my eyelashes are invisible. They're there but you can only actually tell that when I've got mascara on. Benefit's They're Real Lash Primer is perfect for days when I want a no makeup look because they genuinely just end up looking like I've had my lashes tinted. I love it! Also, bonus, it doesn't smudge on my lower lashes.

What have you been loving so far this year? Any new discoveries?
