♥ My Most Used Mascaras

For the final instalment of my most used products, I decided I'd just stick to eye products as there was a theme building! Mascara, to me, is the make up product that changes the face the most. Most of the time, I'll pop a mascara on to walk to the shop, go to the gym or just leave the house for five minutes. It makes me look so much more awake and I feel like it improves my appearance so much so, I couldn't possibly live without it. I always have a million mascara's on the go, but here are the few I'm crazy about.

♥ My Most Used Eye Brushes

Continuing on from Monday's 'most used palettes' post, I felt it highly appropriate for me to discuss what I use to put the eyeshadows on my eyelids! I'm pretty sure that eyeshadows and eye brushes are my all time favourite beauty related things and I have gone crazy for make up brushes, since really getting into makeup. I'm always trying to find new brands and new brushes to use and my wishlist doesn't stop growing. A while back I wrote a post that went through my Five Favourite Brushes but I've changed it up quite a bit since then and I thought this time round I needed to focus only on the brushes I use to do my eyes everyday.

♥ My Most Used Palettes

This week, I thought my three posts could all be centred around my most used beauty bits. I tend to use all of the same stuff time and time again because I'm a certainly a creature of habit. To start off, I thought we had to have a little conversation about eyeshadow palettes. Eyeshadows are definitely my downfall. I just can't get enough and over the past year or so my collection of palettes has really grown. I thought I'd take an opportunity to talk through my most used palettes and what it is I absolutely love about them. Some palettes can get quite expensive but, honestly, when you break it down into the amount of shadows you're getting and how much each one is costing, it makes it seem so worth the money. I absolutely think that the high price tags are acceptable! There are many palettes I wouldn't purchase, though. Like the Urban Decay Vice palettes - they're way too bright and vibrant for me and the rosey tone of Naked3 doesn't tickle my fancy, either. However, the original Naked palette is another story...

♥ Brow Routine: Threading

I used to think my big, brushy brows were the absolute worst. I've always had hairs in-between them and they grow back with a vengeance every time... It's not the best, but it's definitely manageable. I've tried everything from shaving (oops) to waxing and I definitely feel like threading is my go to option for grooming my unruly brows.

♥ Three Third Year Feelings

It's four weeks until I hand in my dissertation and I can pretty confidently say I am terrified. I was so, so proud of the work I'd created in the beginning and that's no longer the case. Everything scares me. I'm stressed on so many levels and I never thought I'd feel like this. I always assumed the transition from A Level student - still living with Mum and Dad - to independent undergraduate would be the hardest thing I've ever done... But, apparently, the transition from student to actual adult with a degree is going to be much, much harder. Third year is giving me all of the feels and I needed to get these particular three off my chest.

♥ LA Girl Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss | Review & Try On

Like the rest of us, I have been so obsessed with liquid lips recently. I'll do anything for a long lasting, matte lipstick that dries down perfectly opaque and doesn't transfer. So when I was asked to try out the LA Girl Matte Pigment Glosses* I couldn't say no, and the extensive shade options had me in a fluster when it came to deciding which ones to try out and put to the test.

♥ Make Up Geek Ditzy: Duo Chrome Eyeshadow | Review

I can't stop using the Make Up Geek shadows I got in March. I am absolutely obsessed with them, but the shadow that has stood out to me the most is definitely Ritzy. It wasn't love at first swatch, at all, but this colour of this shadow has grown on me so much over the past few weeks. I can't get enough of it.

♥ Estee Lauder Double Wear Concealer | Review

I am obsessed with the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation, so when I got bought this a few months ago I was sure I'd be as in love with this as it's counterpart. I was so, so wrong. The Double Wear Foundation creates such a beautifully flawless base and stays put all day long, it's never broken me out and it doesn't make my skin look too dry. So when I had the Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Flawless Wear Concealer to go with it I was pretty convinced I'd look airbrushed, even around the eyes! Sadly, this wasn't the case at all.

♥ 5 Wardrobe Essentials

I've never really been into clothes. Once I find something I like the look of, I'll stick with it. I very rarely change up my style and it's probably massively down to not being very comfortable with how I look, so I tend to wear dark colours and high waisted things to hide as much as possible. I do have some basic staple pieces, though, that I couldn't live without...

♥ Spring Makeup Essentials

Now that it's spring, I'm trying to wear less and less makeup. I don't like putting dark colours on my eyes because the sun starts to come out and I want to look bright, glory and radiant. I try to avoid dark colours in my crease and instead define my eyes with a simple wash of colour and wear loads of highlighting products. Spring and Summer, to me, are all about glowing bronzed skin.

♥ Skin Care Solutions

I've never really had a 'skin care routine'. I don't use any fancy pants products and always change up the things I use because my skin doesn't seem to react at all, no matter what I try and do for it. If you've been reading my blog for a while you may have noticed I moan about my skin a lot. It's because over the past six months my skin has been an absolute nightmare and nothing has helped it clear up. I've been trying out loads of different things - new products, new moisturisers, going makeup free and coming off the pill. Something has changed though, recently and my skin might finally be over freaking out (even though I still get hormonal breaks out every month) but I thought I'd share the few items I'm using at the moment.

♥ March Favourites

April is already upon us and I'm so excited about it. Spring is finally here and summer is getting closer and closer. The weather has been warming up, just a little, and the evenings are lighter because the clocks have gone forward. I love the transition between spring and summer so I really can't wait for April to be here in all its glory. There are some new, different things I enjoyed through March, and here they are:
