I can’t believe 2015 has been and gone!
I decided that I would show you all of my favourites from this past year.
A product that I cannot live without has to be my holy grail concealer which is obviously the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer. It is amazing at covering blemishes and it is also pretty cheap which means I can go through these without breaking the budget!
I love a good powder, so I had to mention one in my favourites and I have chosen the Rimmel Stay Matte powder. I got this in the summer and started using it and I have already hit pan :(. This is seriously in my opinion one of the best powders I have used. I love it!
The Naked Palette has to be a favourite of mine because when I’m not wearing a bold lip and some eyeliner I am always reaching for this. I love the shades and they glide on the eye so easily.
Again eyeliner is something that I couldn’t possibly live without, I always need some form of eyeliner on my eye, but the one I have been grabbing is the L’Oreal Perfect Slim Liquid eyeliner. This is just so perfect for that cat eye and its perfect!
Lipsticks are I think just a favourite for me full stop, so when it came to picking a favourite there was no way that I could pick just one, so I picked 3! The first one is my all time favourite lipstick (which I dedicated a whole blogpost on it) is a MAC lipstick called Dangerous. It is a matte lipstick and its sort of a lovely pilar box red and that is my staple lip product. 9 times out of 10 this will be the lipstick I’m wearing. Another lip product that I have loved is the Topshop Velvet Lips. This again is another matte lip product that is a slightly darker shade of red than the MAC one. I have recently re-discovered this product and I have also been wearing this throughout the Christmas season. The last lip product is this lipstick from Maybeline. It’s in the shade Divine Wine. It is this beautiful plumish redish shade that is again a matte lipstick (I can see a recurring theme here!). There are so many others that I want to mention, but if I did I could be here all day.
My skincare favourite of 2015 has to be the Nivea All in One Cleanser and Toner. I use this everyday to take off my makeup. This always clears up any spots that I get when I have been a bit lazy with my skincare routine. This is also really affordable and its by a brand that we all know and trust so therefore for me its perfect.
I think my favourite hair product has to be the Batiste dry shampoo. I use this when I’m too lazy to have a shower in the morning, this is just a quick fix which is perfect! I have gone through about 2 of the normal size ones this year, so when I saw they had a bigger version I had to get it. I think my favourite scent is the cherry one, but they didn’t have that one in the big size, so I got the original one which is still nice.
I think my favourite film for 2015 was Inside Out. It was an amazing film and I really would like the DVD of it because I just love the film and it teaches kids so many things about emotions and I JUST NEED TO SEE IT AGAIN!
Now its on to TV. Ever since I have got Netflix it has been so easy to binge watch my favourite TV shows and there was no way that I could pick just one. One of my favourites has to be Pretty Little Liars. This show has been full of surprises since the start! I started watching this series at around March time I think and I have finally caught up with it. Othe favourite tv shows include Once Upon a Time, Reign and Downton Abbey (I have rewatched the entitre show in 3 weeks! I need to get out more!)
Now having a YouTube Channel means that I now watch a lot more YouTube videos than I used to, so I have a few of those people that I have been obsessed with this year. Brogan Tate has been one of my absolute favourites this year. I discovered her around June/July time because I was looking for vloggers in Bournemouth because I don’t know about you, but I love seeing areas that I know in other YouTube videos. I have become so obsessed with Brogan’s videos that I can’t wait till 6pm on a Monday for her weekly vlogs. In fact when I see one of her videos in my subscription feed I stop everything to watch it. Plus she is also so sweet and replies to my comments on her videos which always makes me smile. Another YouTube favourite has definitely been Gabriella Lindley (aka velvetgh0st). I have loved watching her vlogs and all of her videos to be honest. I just love how down to earth she is and she is so honest with her viewers!
Continuing with a favourite of 2015 is actually doing YouTube itself. I have really enjoyed making videos at least once a week. I wish I could upload more, but unfortunately I do not have the time to do so. I really enjoyed doing vlogmas because it challenged me to upload everyday which I think I succeeded with the challenge! Perhaps I will give it a go again at some point.
Thanks for joining me on this journey and I hope we can continue it together.
