Fourteen Beauty Discoveries of 2014

 

Hourglass 'Diffused Light' Ambient Lighting Powder | luminous, redness-battling and not at all heavy feeling on the skin; this has single handedly changed my previously negative opinions on powders.

Bobbi Brown 'Pink Rose' Sheer Lip Colour | when I dare venture away from nude lip colours this is the one I go for. A muted, mauvy pink that looks wicked against fair skin and feels super comfortable on the lips.

Rimmel Salon Pro Nail Polish | the best nail varnish formula I've ever used. Glossy, long lasting and a dream to apply. All of the thumbs up.

Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers | I put off this purchase for the longest time and finally caved this year. Expensive? Hell yes. But so, so worth it.

MAC 'Groundwork' Paint Pot | I've probably worn this on more days than I haven't this year. The perfect effortless shadow in one easy step.

Bumble & Bumble Texture (un)Dressing Creme | a one-step wonder for roughed up, dishevelled hair in an instant. One of those products that I just can't imagine being without.

Bobbi Brown 'Powder Pink' Pot Rouge* | a perfect shade for both the lips and cheeks, the creamy formula of this makes it incredibly wearable and such a pleasure to apply.

Estelle & Thild Sensitive Night Cream | calming, hydrating and soothing on my sensitive skin. I love the ethics of this brand and this cream has become a must in my evening routine.

Coconut Oil | my skincare saviour this year, I use this every evening to remove my makeup and my complexion has never felt cleaner or looked healthier.

Soap & Glory 'Supernude' Lipstick | nude? Check. Matte? Check. Everything I look for in a lip colour and preferable over high end options.

MAC 'Coffee' Eye Pencil | smudged and blended through the upper and lower lashline this adds a subtle hint of definition without appearing as harsh as black liner.

Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara | the ultimate choice for thick, volumised lashes that simply will not budge throughout the day.

Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade | this has saved my bacon so many times this year. Naturally my brows leave a lot to be desired, but with this I can get them looking full, symmetrical and defined.

Dr Jart+ BB Cream | I never thought I'd love a lightweight base as much as I do this one. I've worn it all year and it's earned a place on my 'forever repurchase' list.
