Current Beauty Favourites

my life basically a big wish list and I can’t seem to work through it. there’s always a new product being released or something new which my beauty routine would benefit from. its a never ending story and to be fair, only my bank account might be upset about it because I just love shopping and trying new beauty items. it basically was what started this blog and what keeps it going. even though I add quite a few new items every month, there’s never enough to do full monthly favourites. instead, I like to round them up whenever there’s enough to write about and today is the day. today, I’m sharing my current beauty favourites with you and I hope you enjoy them.
my hair is not really happy about the heat at the moment and it tends to be a weird mix between dry, greasy and frizzy. summer means I have to put a lot more effort into taking care of my hair. because the weather does all kinds of weird things to it, the colab dry shampoo has been a lifesaver. it just adds life back into it and makes it look absolutely fresh and it has no white residue which is a must as my hair is very dark and basically every other dry shampoo is visible in my hair. the heat also really messes with my makeup and despite only wearing very little makeup, it just doesn’t stay when it’s too hot. there’s only one setting spray to use for me and it’s the urban decay all nighter setting spray. it just keeps it all in place and it feels very refreshing to put it on too. there are three makeup items I’m so obsessed with right now and one of them is a very well known one and I’m probably the last person to buy it. it’s the famous laura mercier loose setting powder. I have never used such a fine powder in my life before. it literally melts into my skin and sets my concealer in the most flawless way. it’s pricey but worth it for sure. because my brows like to not stay in place, a brow gel in a must for me. I love the l’oréal brow artist plumper for that. it adds a slight bit of colour and it keeps them in place all day. I’m a true winged liner girl and almost feel naked without it. usually, I use a liquid eyeliner but when I bought a magazine to read at Heathrow airport, there was an eyeko eyeliner pen in there and let me tell you, it’s unreal. it’s so black and so easy to use and stays on all day. if you struggle with eyeliner, this is the one to use.
even though it has been really warm, I still like my bath and pamper time. sleepy body lotion by lush has been the best thing to use in the evening lately. the lavender scent calms me down so much and it hydrated my skin so well. it’s just the best. I have also discovered the best mask/chemical peeling in the world. it the ordinary aha and bha peeling solution. it looks like blood and doesn’t smell pleasing at all but as soon as you put it on, you can feel it working on your skin. its basically eating away everything bad and my skin feels so smooth after and looks radiant and refreshed. i adore it.

so here we have my current beauty favourites. do you have tried any of the products mentioned? please let me know.
