I’ve been having another huge clearout of my beauty drawers recently, especially after running out of many key products which has sent me into panic and many orders being placed across various websites *excited to unbox many many items* – always the way isn’t it?

In the meantime, I thought I’d mention a few things that have been my everyday arsenal for a while now, that don’t get the lovin’ on here they deserve…

Jo Malone Amber and Patchouli Cologne – This beauty has been keeping me smelling good since my 21st, and it’s a gorgeous spicy and woody scent. The cologne is typically more expensive than the regular perfumes due to more intense blends, but after some online scouring it looks like it’s either out of stock everywhere or has been discontinued – huge sad face as this is potentially my fave ever perfume! If you’re a fan of smelling a bit more sensual and heady, kinda like Tom Ford Black Orchid, then this is a much lighter yet still alluring option (if it’s still around that is….)

Green People Enrich and Enhance Lip Primer* – I apply this before every lipstick yet never mention it! The primer is very nourishing, a great mixture of lip balm and primer to keep your colour in place all day – granted, your lipstick does still wear away during the day, but the base coat stays put and feels comfortable for hours on end.

Pür Cosmetics Disapperaing Act Concealer* – As a liquid concealer fan, using a cream concealer is sometimes neccesary to cover a blemish or two, and this little pot is pretty great at saving my ass when there’s something popping where it shouldn’t. The light shade matches my skin when I’m tanned and sun-starved, so it’s adaptable and easy to blend, plus it’s cruelty free and paraben/gluten free too!

Inika Baked Mineral Bronzing Powder* – This is my go-to bronzer/blush these days, as the warmer tones add colour and life to my cheeks without feeling too orange. I love that the mineral formula makes it easy to swirl in and is gentle on sensitive and acne prone skin, and makes me look 10x more tanned than I am which is always a plus! Again, this beauty is cruelty-free and vegan, and I’d say all skintones could get away with the warm bronze hue for a bit of summer glow in a minimal routine.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel – I never used to set my brows, but since combing this through the unruly hairs, my brows are looked neater and bigger (in a good way) than ever! The formula isn’t too tacky or crunchy, it’s perfected to keep everything neat and tidy with your brows looking more groomed than ever – should probably wear this ever day looking at my curly hairs…

Fairydrops Scandal Queen Waterproof Mascara – At the time of photographing this, Fairydrops was my all-time fave mascara; natural yet defined lashes, so waterproof it doesn’t budge, has extra fibres to plump out volume, and also the more gorgeous packaging. I could love and rave about it forever, however after much research I believe that the mascara isn’t cruelty free like I thought (or if it is, it’s not publicised much on the web!) so as this tube was seriously dried up and old and ew, it had to go in the bin. I do love the formula, it’s one of the best, it’s just not making the cut this time which is sad, but I still do thoroughly recommend it to anyone with watery eyes and straight lashes!
