Get ready for a bit of a bumper favourites this month as this is a loves of February and top picks of March rolled into one post. We have a mixture of everything – makeup, an instagram account and the best drink you’ll probably ever taste!
I’ve mentioned my sudden love for gloss a fair few times recently but there’s one that has been head and shoulders above all the rest – NYX Butter Gloss in Angel Food Cake. Not only is the shade totally up my street, a pinky nude that is a bit darker than my usual lip colour, but the formula is legit magic. Not sticky but so high shine it’s blinding. I think I’m going to have to pick up a few more shades of these because I’m obsessed.
I think I may have mentioned a couple of months back but when I went to Edinburgh last year we went on a gin tasting and it totally opened my eyes to this gin-mania that’s going on at the minute. Although I’m still a prosecco girl at heart I am partial to a bit of rhubarb and over the last couple of months I’ve found myself thinking about having a rhubarb gin with lemonade at least twice a day. My favourite (and to be honest one of the only ones I’ve tried) is the Edinburgh Gin Rhurbarb and Ginger Gin Liquor. It’s less gin and more a sweet sort of syrup but that means that it really hits you in the face with rhubarb and I’m all about that!
My dad would say I have too many brushes, I say you can never have too many. So you can imagine my excitement when for my birthday my friends bought me a set of eyeshadow brushes that were multicoloured and sparkly. DREAM. For the past month I’ve been giving each of them a little go but there’s one that I love so much, I honestly don’t know how I’ve ever lived without it. It’s got long-ish hairs (hairs?) and they’re flexible with a flat top and it makes the perfect highlight brush. It may be a tenth of the size of previous highlight brush but I prefer it ten times more. It means I can just brush it onto my cheekbones in a sort of swirling motion, take it up to my brow bone and onto my cupids bow with no problems and no worries that it’s going to end up spreading onto the middle of my cheek, which has been known to happen.
I’d like to give a quick shout out to Kate La Vie’s instagram. It is so stunning and looking at it makes me instantly happy. Also I have an instagram album full of home inspo and 99 per cent of it are posts of hers.
