You’ve asked me so many questions about my skin care regime and hair and makeup favourites lately (which is a good thing and I’m totally thrilled about it ♥) so I thought I would sum up all my favourites for each month in one post. A monthly beauty award. How does that sound? That means I will sum up all my most loved products for this month only, not including summer favourites etc. If you like this post then please let me know so I know whether to keep doing them or not :)
1. YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat foundation.
Probably not a surprise, hehe? My skin is very sensitive and I break out very easily, however, this has proven to be safe. It provides medium coverage, feels and looks like skin and gives the most beautiful dewy glow. I use shade B30. Get it here.
2. Guerlain 4 seasons terracotta bronzer
This is a life saver, especially on early pale mornings! I love it can be used all year due to the four shades which run natural as opposed to the orange tinge many bronzers seem to have. I must also mention it lasts forever! I use the shade 02 Brunette. Get it here.
3. Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser
A long time favourite which is also safe for sensitive skin, at least for mine. I use this as a foundation as I think the coverage it provides is as good as many foundations I’ve tried. It gives the skin a beautiful healthy look without making the skin look oily. I use shade Sand. Not sure where to get it online but most airports always have a great offer for this!
4. Lancome Hypnose Star Mascara and Art Liner
I’m a big fan of Lancome’s mascaras! Normally I use the Hypnose previous cells but a friend convinced me to try this and it really is amazing! The brush is wide on one side and flat on the other making it easy to reach the roots of your lashes and the shorter hairs, making your lashes look fuller. The art liner has the perfect tip to line the lash line, it’s easy to make both a thin line and a thicker line. Get the mascara here and the liner here.
5. Mac Pinch Me Blush
I have two favourite blushes, that is Mac Pinch me and Nars Dolce Vita. This month I’ve been using Pinch me simply because it happend to end up in my makeup bag. I barely dot the brush in the pan (I like to use this brush for blushes btw) and lightly dust in onto my cheeks. Little by little :) Get it in Mac shops, Nars Dolce Vita can be found here.
6. YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick in 02
As with blushes I also have two favourite lipsticks, that is YSL Rouge Volupte 02 Beige and Mac Hue. This month I’ve been wearing the YSL lipstick and I think it comes down to the amazingly beautiful packaging which decorates my environment no matter if it’s in my bag or on the shelf. I don’t actually smear it on but lightly dot it on instead as I like the matte look it creates. Get it here.
7. Urban Decay Naked Palette 1+2
I’ve been wearing very little eyeshadow this month but when I have these are my go-to palettes. Often I will use a little Naked or Buck just by the lash line to create a soft day smoked eyeliner, and a bit of shimmer by the tear duct – that is an instant pick me up btw! Get Naked 1 here, and Naked 2 here. I hear the new Naked Basics palette is great too?
8. Mac Subculture
Probably the most asked for product this month, even James commented it was “a great makeup lip thing I had done”. I’ve used this to fill in my lips and it gives a great matte nude lip! I highly recommend it :) Get it in Mac shops.
1. Ole Henriksen African Red Tea Foaming Cleanser
I love this so much!! If you read my blog this week you’ve probably already read my review, if not you can check it out here. This cleanser is especially great for sensitive skin, it removes makeup easily whilst still not stripping the skin for moisture. And the smell… my god.. it’s heavenly! ♥ Multi award winning for a reason I guess he he. Get it here.
2. Ole Henriksen Herbal Day Creme with spf 15
This moisturiser transformed my skin from moderate acne to almost free of blemishes in only days! I have never seen anything like it before and I’m so thankful I found this. It’s for normal/combination skin and moisturises while still letting the skin breathe. The spf is for both UVA and UVB rays, meaning it protects from both aging and burning rays. You can read more about it in my review, here. Get it here.
3. Ole Henriksen Truth Collagen Booster
Another multi award winning product. This serum is packed with c-vitamins and antioxidants which helps rebuild the skin tissue, and this is a must have if you’re looking to slow down the aging process or even out the skin tone. Read more about it in my review here. Get it here, OR…

3. Kerastase Forcintense
I’ve used this for probably about 7 years or so now and it’s still my favourite for when my hair really needs that bit of extra attention, which normally is proteins. The treatment is divided in two, first step is to nurture the hair follicle and second is to lock in the proteins. This is some serious hair salon stuff and I always feel like I’m spoling my hair whenever I use it. I can’t recommend it enough! Get it here.
4. Kerastase Ciment Thermique
Heat protectant and heat activating hair mask in one! It smells really good, makes my hair soft and easy managable and protects against heat – what’s not to love? Get it here.
5. Kérastase Nutritive masqueintense
A great mask for when moisture is needed! I only use it in the ends of my hair and so it lasts forever despite the fact that I use it almost every time I wash my hair. Both this and the Kerastase Forcintense mentioned above are must haves if you don’t want the hair dresser to cut off your locks! Get it here.
6. John Masters Organics deep scalp follicle treament and volumiser
I’ve written a review about this one too, you can read it here if you missed it. The photos in the review tells better than any words, my hair started growing insanely faster after I started using this. To be honest it doesn’t provide that much volume, but the health of the sclap and the growth of the hair is tremendous! Definitely a must have if you’re saving for long hair! Get it here.
7. Diva hot air styler
I’ve written a review on this not too long ago, if you missed it you can read it here. It’s a salon blow dry at home basically! Really easy to use, easier on the hair than curling irons and good value for the money. Get it here.
8. Clip in hair extension
I’d prefer to keep this to my self as it’s one of those things you like to pretend to be real, but I do sometimes cheat when it comes to my hair. I find clip ins the perfect solution for me as it both looks and feels perfectly real and is easy and quick to apply, yet I don’t have to sleep with it or work out with i. I use the shade 60/24 – Sandy Blonde, a full set + quad clip, get it here.
9. Moroccan Oil
I completely forgot when putting the pictures together, but I have been using Moroccan oil a lot as well, amazing stuff, but I’m sure you’ve heard all about it so I won’t bore you with that ;) Get it here.
Please let me know if this is something you want me to continue doing, either by a comment or a like on bloglovin or facebook :) I would also LOVE to hear your favourites, maybe you know of products that are better than some of these? Tell me, tell me!! ♥
