It's fair to say, during October I haven't worn much in the way of makeup thanks to having a newborn baby to look after, and being in labour for the first part of the month. I have however established some firm favourites of recent, and here's a better look at what they are.
Glo & Ray blusher in Halo pink*
This is a perfect dupe for the NARS Orgasm blusher (which I own, but have lost, sadface). It's from a new high end makeup brand called Glo & Ray - I know I've said it's a dupe and high end, but the price point is significantly cheaper than NARS (£11*), but equals it in quality. There'll be a full review coming soon :)
MUF HD Foundation
I can't help but love this foundation. I have a couple of firm favourites, like the Chanel velvet foundation and Bourjois radiance renewal, but this is up there with them. It has great coverage, a great finish and lasts really well and barely needs a touch up.
NARS blusher in Dolce Vita*
Such a beautiful autumn blusher, it's a gorgeous deep berry shade, again, this will be reviewed very soon on the blog :)
Dior BB eye cream
I've had this a while and have recently re-discovered it. It corrects the darkness under my eyes and helps to conceal my epic bags, all while being very lightweight and with minimal creasing. I don't know if they still make it, it's not cheap, I think it was just over £20 but in my opinion, it's worth it :)
Bourjois liner pinceau
Such an amazing liquid eyeliner, I love that it's jet black, that it doesn't transfer or melt and that it stays put until I'm ready to remove it at the end of the night, and what's more, it's a hell of a lot more affordable than my old favourite (Chanel ecriture - £25) and realistically, equally as good.
Benefit Browzings in light*
I'm a recent convert to the way of Browzings! I think I've been wearing brow powder that's too dark for me for a while now and this is much lighter and looks much more natural, but still while giving fullness and definition.
Makeup Revolution Flawless palette
For me this is more of an autumn palette, but realistically it'd look fab at any time of year. It's become my go-to palette since I bought it. The pigmentation is great, they blend well and last well, to be fair though, this is the quality I've come to expect from Makeup Revolution, so I'm not surprised that I love it :)
Not a whole lot of favs, but I've been saving the best one for last. If you haven't seen, in October (6th) I gave birth to my first baby, a little boy :) So it's fair to say, he's definitely my October favourite :)
