my winter staples

I might be a little late to the party considering winter has been here for a while! but better late than never and it is still winter!
in the colder months there are certain beauty products that are my saviours that i use every single day in the winter.
I think its important to really look after your skin throughout the year, but definitely in the winter with the harsh cold weather on your skin can make it pretty dry. So keeping my skin soft and well moisturised is most definitely a MUST - who wants dry skin?!

Body cream- the one brand that never fails me are the bath and body works Shea creams, they are super moisturising, they leave your skin so soft and they smell amazing! and the fragrance really lingers. my favourite part about these besides the gorgeous scents are the fact they aren't sticky! i love a bath at night time and there is nothing worse then getting into bed feeling all tacky after moisturising! they soak into your skin really quickly, so you don't get that tacky feel and i don't stick to my bed sheets. even though its winter, the current one I'm using is actually a summer scent! bourbon strawberry and vanilla! no other reason other than i just have a massive collection of them and just grab whatever i fancy using, and i fancied a summer scent! - why not?!

lip balm- i have soooo many lip balms, but the Cath kidston one is the one i have definitely reached for the most and its always in my bag! smells lovely and it does the job! so moisturising- and it tastes good too!

hand cream- my hands are in water alot with work, so its hard to keep up with moisturising my hands when they are in water again minutes later, but when I'm not working, i slather it on! best way for me is applying it once im in bed so it can really absorb into my hands. and it tends to work! - no dry hands here! the zoella wonder hand works a treat!

face cream- i use the clinique moisture surge, the consistency is almost gel like! and I'm the same with my face creams like i am with my body, i don't like the tacky, greasy feel so this one is perfect for me. It sinks in really quick and you can't feel it after so it doesn't make your face feel heavy but keeps it soft and moisturised.

Too faced sweet peach glow- now i couldn't do my staples without putting this in here! One thing about winter skin is that it can look a bit dull. but nothing what a shimmer blush and a highlight can't cure! we all want to look glowing in the winter and look revived so what better way to do it?! its smells like peaches which is just amazing, but it does what its meant to, gives your skin that glow!

what are your winter staples?

Is primark makeup worth the hype?

Ive heard soo many good things about primark make up..yes you heard it right primark make up! that i had to test it myself! to be honest its not a make up line that i ever really thought much about or even looked at before. But i heard that they upped there game and brought out new ranges which were dupes of high end brands!
my primark beauty section isn't the biggest but they had a fair selection there and it seems over the past few months they have been getting more and more things in! i wanted to try all of  the foundations, one of which was a long wear one (i cant remember the exact name? as that one i particular is meant to be a dupe for estee lauder! they unfortunately didn't have my shade which was a real shame as i really wanted to try i but i didn't fancy walking around with a face that totally doesn't match my neck what so ever!.
Admittedly i did forget to pick up a bronzer and a contour set and a primer but i can test these at a later date. i was more inter…

my favourite products for a pamper evening

I love a good old pamper evening! from having a nice relaxing bubble bath with all my favourite bath products to a good face mask! you name it, if you call it a pamper evening you go all out! right? bath, hair, face, nails, blisssss! although i will be honest with you, i don't actually enjoy painting my nails but i do like it once they are done and are looking pretty!

So first thing is first BATH! literally my favourite thing ever. so we choose a nice bubble bath or a
bath bomb! but we are going for my bath and body works, a thousand wishes bubble bath and ohh myyy it smells insane and guess what?! the bubbles are insane too!
next up, a nice shower gel and yes! again a bath and body works one....I'm addicted to them they smell incredible and are so soft on the skin! if you live in the uk like i do and aren't lucky enough to have a bath and body works here i have a post about how to get hold of them right here in the uk yay! (if you want to check that out too)
I'm not …

My favourite make up brushes

For someone like me who wears make up practically every day and who owns a fair few make up brushes i thought i would share my favourite brushes that i use, and what i use them for!
 I do have quite the selection, and to be honest with you there are some that i never really pick up so i should pass them on to someone who would get more use out of them!
there are definitely  a fair few that i always pick up, and i do use a lot of them! mainly because i get lazy with washing my brushes, so i tend to go through most of them and then i tend to do a big batch wash.

I will start with the ones i own the most of, foundation brushes, i tend to use one for about a week then go onto a nice clean one until i am running pretty low on clean ones, thats when i tend to wash them! which i do actually enjoy doing! i would say one of the main keys to your make up is the application, the key to making it look good and flawless is to invest in some good quality make up brushes! the cheap ones tend to be …
