thought i'd do a post on my favourite beauty products as of late. i've had the longest hair since i was little (admittedly, it was a lot longer when i was little. i used to love the fact i could say my hair went down to my bum, because it actually did). therefore, i've always enjoyed taking really good care of my hair because there was just so much of it. on the other hand, make up and i have never had much of a relationship. i've been blessed with clear skin through my teenage years and only very occasionally suffer from one or two pimples, but i am very prone to eczema on my face and so have to be careful that my make up doesn't irritate my skin, or else all hell breaks loose. trust me, you don't wanna know.
1. seven wonders natural hair care 'morrocan treatment conditioner' - this conditioner is gods gift to the world. it smells beautiful, makes my hair lusciously soft, my split ends have decreased since i started using it and i think it's because it gives my hair a bit of protection when i use my straightener. i get psoriasis on my scalp and it doesn't irritate my scalp at all. and as i said, smells phenomenal.
2. morrocan oil treatment, bumble & bumble 'surf spray', schwarzkopf 'blonde me' shine spray - okay so these are my three hair babies. i think there's been enough said about morrocan oil but i am a huge fan and it gives my hair a beautiful feel. bumble & bumble is a spray i picked up in america because it was a quarter of the price and gives you beach goddess hair. it works wonders if you blast it with a hair dryer and scrunch your hair lots to give it a pretty little wave. lastly, i am most certainly not blonde, but this spray is amazing. it's a shine spray which smells like summer and gets rid of my fly aways in an instant. it was recommended by my hair dresser and i haven't looked back since!
3. mac face & body foundation, maybelline 'define a line' eyeliner, sportsgirl 'oh my goddess' bronzer, mac waterproof mascara, mac eyeshadows - when it comes to make up, mac have pretty much been my saviour. their face & body foundation is so perfect for me, as someone who needs minimal coverage and likes a natural look. i love that it just enhances my skin, it doesn't change it. it's also a pretty amazing product, you put it on (i just use my fingers) and it looks like it's disappeared. but give it about 30 seconds, and you look back and your skin is flawless. it just takes a little while to set, but once it sets it's incredible. i also love their waterproof mascara (it's so thick & dark) and their metallic eyeshadows in golds & browns are my favourites. i use maybelline eyeliner because it's just the right consistency between pencil and liquid and oh so easy to apply. lastly (and i know this one might throw you a little bit) is my bronzer. it's sportsgirl which might make you think what the hell?, but it's seriously the best bronzer i have ever found! the perfect colour for my skin tone, it adds just enough colour to make me look like i'm lightly sunkissed. love it. i bought 4 of them.. yep, love it that much!
