October Favourites

Wow, what a busy week again! I always start the week with no plans and the intention to catch up on blogging and end up being so busy that I have no time to blog when I want to or schedule posts for that matter! I've finally found some time to sit down and blog and schedule a few posts ... hallelujah! 

Diorskin Airflash Spray Foundation

 Having started my course and not having much time in the morning to get ready (damn you snooze button), this foundation has been my little face saver. Most days I don't wear makeup as we model for each other but on the weeks where we have been doing hair, it's nice to wear a bit of foundation and mascara. This is perfect as I can get my foundation on in about 2 seconds by giving a light spray all over my face. It barely needs blending too! 

L'Oreal Glam Bronze 

 I received this little beaut in my work leaving goodie bag. It's probably not something I would have bought myself but after giving it a go, I love it. I've barely worn any other bronzer/blush/highlight since receiving this. I absolutely love that you can use this one product for all 3, ideal for those rushed mornings I mentioned above! And look at the beautiful swatches!

Rimmel Space Dust Nail Paint

Last year I went a little crazy for the space dust nail colours from Rimmel. Well, since I can no longer afford to get a gel manicure, I have resorted back to painting my own nails. I rediscovered these in the depths of my giant nail polish stash and have fallen in love again!

Real Techniques Duo Fiber Eye Brush

It's no secret that I'm a big fan of the RT brushes and own pretty much all of them! When I first used the duo fiber collection I wasn't sure what to make of the brushes but they have grown on me the more I've used them. Especially the eye brush. This is now my favourite brush for blending out the edges of any eye look. 

Vichy Dermablend Setting Powder

I've always preferred using a coloured powder to set my foundation so I get slightly more coverage. However since starting my course, I've ditched the coloured powder and now this translucent setting powder has become my go to product. I also own the MAC prep and prime powder which is just as good but lives in my kit.

Office Burgundy Suede Monk Shoes

I recently decided I wanted to snazz up my shoe collection with some nice flats that weren't pumps. I live in boots or converse but have nothing in between the 2. I saw these in Office and fell in love. They also come in black but I decided to go for these as they're a bit more unique.

What were your October favourites? Were any of them the same as mine?



  1. That highlight combo palette looks great! I always like products like that as I don't wear them too often so that is a good option rather than spending a lot on three products I wouldn't use much! Great faves and hope the course is going well :) xx

    1. It's so nice! I've used it pretty much every day now for a couple of months and it doesn't even look like I've touched it! Aw thank you, it's going really well! X

  2. The Glam Bronze looks gorgeous! I love the shades and blended together!
    Dermablend powder is my holy grail with such an oily t-zone it really takes away the shine and lasts all day :)

    Peach Pow XO

    1. Mmm it's beautiful and even better in real life! Yeah, it's such a good product for lasting power! X
