Natural make up look

For basic make up 
Body shop face and body brush
Sephora pro contour blush contour 74 
Beautyblender sponge
Natural collection mascara
YSL Top Secret all in on BB Cream in clear
Too faced cocoa powder foundation
Nars Blush/Bronze duo orgasm/Laguna 

Firstly you wet the sponge and squeeze it  dry. 
Apply only a small about of BB cream on the sponge. 
I dot the cream on both my cheeks and forehead then blend it in, starting with my eyelids outwards. 
The BB cream is really good and covers up all my bleamishes and spots. 

Next I used the blush orgasm with the blush brush. 
Only a little about of the blush is needed. 
Next after this is the powder foundation, it helps blend the blusher in a bit and gives your face a nice finish. 
Lastly I use natural collection mascara just on my upper lashes and only a bit as I'm going for the natural look. 
I haven't used lipgloss, I've used my EOS lip balm in strawberry sorbet. 
This is the same look with just bronzer and brown eyeliner in the bottom, the eyeliner is stila

September Favourites

This month my favourites are quite a few, I've cut it down to ten items or the list would be never ending. 
The reason for this is that I've bought quite a few this month due to the fact my birthday was this month. 
To kick off this list I'll start with my new favourite lip balm, 100% natural and 95% organic. Eos lip balm in strawberry sorbet, I loved the baby pink exterior and how easy it is to apply. 
They did it in the most beautiful mint green but sadly it was mint flavoured so had to get the strawberry one.  

It feels lovely on the lips and smells divine and moistures your lips really well. 

 My second favourite for this month is a body moisturiser that I've had for quite a while but had to the side for a bit. Having returned to it, I've fallen in love with the smell all over again, oats and milk, smells good enough to eat. 
It's one of Soap and Glory's, I've always used one of their body lotions, usually righteous butter. 
Smoothie star body milk not only smells so delicious but also makes my skin feel even softer than righteous butter does. 

Next favourite of the month has to be my beautyblender, is been using just a cheap pink sponge in quite a similar shape to beautyblender but it hasn't lasted very long. Now using beautyblender I can say that beautyblender is much better and is softer and blends a lot better. 
Next is logical to have my new foundation that I apply with the beautyblender. 
Yves Saint Laurent BB Cream, it is amazing it feels really light on the face but also manages to cover up spots and imperfections. 

Too Faced Bronzed and Poreless bronzer, it is also a non shimmery one, so it's a little different to a normal one. 
I love using this bronzer and haven't used any other bronzer since bought this. I feel I can wear this all the time whereas with shimmery bronzer sometimes I feel it looks too much and can't look as natural. 

Nars Orgasm is my next favourite of the month. This blush is really nice pinky colour and once again still can be used for a natural look. Which means can use daily. 

Bath and body works candles

Bought a new candle and it's my favourite smell ever!!!! 
It smells just like banana milkshake and bread butter pudding, which makes sense as it is banana nutmeg bread pudding scented candle. 
I also bought a holder for the candle.

EOS Lip Balm

I found these out in a Walgreen's and I feel in love with the mint green one but couldn't buy it as it was mint flavour. I got the pink strawberry sorbet lip balm instead. 

I find these lip balms really handy as it's easier to apply and the smells are lovely. 

I quickly bought a second one before I left to come home, a pink and white striped one that smells of Coconut Milk. 

They cost only 6 dollars each, just over 3.60ish each roughly in pounds.

September Birchbox.

I was so excited when I saw the new birchbox in my porch on my way out that I rushed back inside to open it. 
First thing I saw was the box, it was the best box ever fushia and green with a lovely design on. 
I was happy enough with the box alone then I opened the box and was so excited when I saw the beautyblender. 
I have quite a few blending sponges but not a beautyblender one as they are quite expensive. I was even happier when I saw it came with the solid cleanse. 
I can't wait to use this! 

Next thing I saw was Benefit's it's Potent Eye Cream. I was really excited about this as I've seen it quite a bit but didn't want to spend that much money on it without knowing how well it works. And the sample is a complete miniature of the full size product, glass jar and everything. 
The next thing in this months box that caught my eye is the shower gel by a company I never heard of, Korres. Though it smells lovely as it's a citrus smell, despite this I don't think I'll be buying this as I am so in love with the Body Shop ones. 
Also the packaging isn't that great I love packaging like soap and Glorys products. 
Agave Healing Oil was the next product in my box that I think I'll save til after my holiday as my hair will probably need this to restore it's condition as sun and swimming does damage to your hair. 
A lipgloss by Model co in colour Morocco, the colour looks lovely and is such a nice small size that I can put it my my handbag or a little bag in the evening. 
The last item in this months birchbox was Urban Fruit Mango, which is dried mango, I'm rather nervous about trying this as I've never eaten mango before. 
I'll have to try this before I can decide if I like it or not before I buy though it would only be occasionally as this packets aren't cheap.
