Hello Ladies and Gents. Welcome to a new week and another favourites to brighten your Monday morning. Today's offering is Makeup. Now, if you have been with me from the start of LLP, you will most likely know that I am a complete make up newbie! Learning laaaate into 2013 how to create the perfect brow, only wearing bronzer for the first time in June and how to 'create' a smokey eye, which I still fail at but I'm learning! To my favourites then...

First up is my two favourite lipsticks from 2013. As I have always been a pop-lip kinda gal, this was no problem for me. I'm a lippie expert! I had to share my new discovery Mac Lady Danger from 2013, which was recommended to me from the gorgeous sister duo Pixiwoo (You can have a gander at how we met HERE). This colour is my go to shade for almost every look I create, as for me you can never not wear a pop-lip. It makes me feel complete! You can read my full review HERE.

My second choice has to be from Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick range. I was blown away by the Kate Moss lipstick Collection as soon as I swatch'ed away in good old Boots. Love at first sight had to be shade 111, with the much loved 107 coming in at a close second. This bright but rich red is a perfect complement to my pale skin HERE.

Next up was a purchase in early Spring from my number one enabler Kate from Gh0stparties! Of course it's from Laura Mercier Radiance Foundation Primer. A light creamy primer that leaves a beautiful glow on your skin even under foundation. This was my every day go to primer in the Summer and even as the nights drew in earlier, it's the perfect base if you prefer a dewy finish. I love it. You can find my full review HERE.

So if you had to pick one foundation to take with you for the rest of your days could you pick one? I could! Liz Earle Signature Foundation in 02 Ivory is my perfect match. Not only in colour but in texture, finish, coverage...oh the list could go on. I am so happy this product is in my life, this was a no brainer choice for me. This foundation is going no where, it's a keeper. You can read my full review HERE.

Last but not least is the product that transformed my make up bag forever. Becca's Mineral Bronzing Powder in Duende was my first attempt at entering the bronzer world which I had desperately kept away from my face, OK I admit it, I was too scared to use it in case I looked like I had either rubbed soil on my face or had an ompalumpa moment. How wrong I was! This bronzer is fantastic. It's a great match with my pale skin tone along with its subtle shimmer highlight my features like a dream. You can reads my rather embarrassing bronzer tales over HERE.

Makeup is always a tough one for me as I just don't wear a full face these days but I am trying to make more of an effort in 2014 (as I am writing this with no makeup on and still in PJ's!). Next post will be a fab collection of my skincare must haves this January. Till then folks! Have a lovely start to the week.
