6 beauty products I’m loving rn

I rarely purchase new makeup these days because I’m trying to use up everything I’ve already got but I have picked up some new bits over the past couple of weeks that I’m really enjoying so I wanted to share some of these gems with y’all.

We ran into some lovely Benefit samples at work and I went home with the Benefit GoGo Tint and the Benefit They’re Real Duo Shadow Blender which was a lovely surprise. Let’s start with the eyeshadow. The weird little applicator is impossible to use so let’s just forget about that. It’s tiny and you can not keep hold of it unless you have a pincer grip. But, the product itself, being the eyeshadow is a beautiful rich taupe-y brown shade and I’ve been using it almost everyday because it’s lovely and matte. The shimmery shade is also a great highlight colour and the formula of both is buttery and smooth and really long lasting.

Why breakouts can be a good thing.

Eesh. I know. 99% of the time breakouts are the devil. They’re the one thing that you do NOT want to happen. But, recently, I’ve come to a little realisation that sometimes they can be a good thing. Breakouts are basically a clear out of all the junk under your skin which is gross, but it can leave you with the glowiest of glowing skin when everything’s cleared up.

How to style a lob; the easy wave

Curls, waves and beachiness look so great on shorter hair. Long gone are the days when short hair meant that you couldn’t style it any other way than straight. Celebs like Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Alba and even Chezza back in the day have all rocked the long curly lob and it’s still super cute in 2017. I love this look and at the moment, I’m not a fan of my hair straight because I’m growing my fringe out and it just stands out too much. I’ve been trying a new tool to help me get this look and I’ve got a little review for you.
