This year has been a great year for me, makeup wise. It is the year where I have really got into makeup a lot more and have started trying out loads of different products and brands. In August of this year, I also started this blog, which I love writing.
As this year is coming to a close, I thought that it would be the perfect time to write about some of my favourite products from 2014. Some of them I bought this year, but some are ones that I have used for a while, but especially loved this year.
The first favourite from this year is the Maybelline Superstay Better Skin Foundation. It is very well priced at £8.99 and is one of the best drugstore foundations that I have used. The packaging promises better feeling skin in 3 weeks and I wasn't disappointed, after it made a noticeable difference very quickly. It has good coverage and feels light rather than cakey. The range also includes lots of different shades, which is good if you struggle to find foundations that perfectly match your skin. I ran out of this a little while back and have been meaning to pick up some more, because I love it a lot.
My favourite concealer from this year, would have to be Boiing by Benefit. Although I used plenty of different concealers throughout the year, Boiing was a winner for me. It is a more high end concealer, but wasn't overbearingly expensive at £17.50, as it has lasted for around 8 months which I think is amazing. I also bought it Duty Free, so it only cost me around £14. Mine is in Shade 01, which is the palest of them all. In total, there are 5 different shades to choose from. I find it brightens up my eyes a lot when I use it and it also covers spots and blemishes in no time.
My last favourite is a skincare product, instead of makeup. It is the Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturiser. I have always suffered with certain dry patches on my face, mainly around my eyes. When I attended London Fashion Week 2013, I was given a goodie bag which included a little sample of this moisturiser. I couldn't believe how amazing it was and how quickly it sorted out my dry skin. Sadly, sample sized don't last for ever . When I looked at buying a full size bottle online, they were around £8, plus postage and packing, which I was too tight to pay. A couple of weeks later I was walking around my local supermarket and I came across a full sized bottle of this moisturiser in the clearance section for about £2... RESULT! It is perfect for dry skin and heals it so quickly. As it is a very oily moisturiser, I try to avoid places on my face which tend to get oily or shiny, as this just makes it worse.
