2014 Beauty Favourites
It's that time of year again when I get to share my beauty favourites from the year, if you want to compare these to my favourites of 2013 you can, I'm quite surprised as to how some have changed!

Foundation - One you may have heard me speak a lot about this year is the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation in 010 Light Porcelain. My bottle is nearly empty and only has about one use left in it which means as soon as I can I will be getting another. The reason this has been my favourite foundation is because it gives me medium coverage and doesn't cost the earth.

Concealer - It had to be the bloggers favourite Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair. It works so well as an under eye concealer and blends seamlessly into the skin for a flawless brightening effect.

Primer - If you haven't heard of Benefit POREfessional Primer I fear you may have been living under a rock for some time as this primer has been featured on practically every single blog within the last year and I can understand why; it is amazing. It leaves the skin feeling so smooth and creates a wonderful base for the rest of your makeup.

Powder - Another blogger favourite is the Rimmel Stay Matte powder. A light dusting of this across my face lengthens the last of my makeup and leaves my face shine free!
Bronzing and Highlights Favourites
Best Bronzer, Contour and Highlight

Bronzer - As a person with very pale skin, finding a bronzer that doesn't make my skin look muddy is very difficult. However, I have found one: Soap&Glory Solar Powder, it has two shades of bronzer so you can create your perfect shade.

Contour - Again being pale means orangey based contours don't work so I had to find another to use. In this instance I turned to a matte eyeshadow by Makeup Revolution: Mocha Love. This isn't too orangey but also isn't so grey based it makes me look ghostly.

Highlighter - I love highlighters but I am always looking for one that give me a gorgeous glow and is easy to apply. The Kroylan Glossybox Highlighter in Cashmere is just that. It is a cream highlighter that doesn't make me look like a discoball.
Best Eye Makeup Products
Best Mascara, Eyeliner and Eyebrow Products

Mascara - Earlier in the year if you'd have asked me which mascara was my favourite I would have probably said Benefit They're Real but I hadn't discovered Tarte Lights Camera Lashes. For some reason this formula and brush make my lashes look amazing!

Eyeliner - I am not great at eyeliner so my favourites to use are felt tip liners especially this Essence Waterproof Felt Tip Liner; so inexpensive but so good.

Eyebrows - My brows are terrible to find filling in products for so when I got sent Model Co More Brows, in a Glossybox, I was able to not only find a product that matches my brows, but also one that is quick and easy to use.

Lipgloss - After finding the NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss in Beige in a NEXT store it has hardly left my lips since!

Lipstick - I kind of cheated for this one as I couldn't choose between two that I have been loving: MAC Hue and Avon Pout.
Favourtie Perfume
Favourite Perfume
Now I may not be the biggest Nicki Minaj fan however, her perfume Pink Friday smells gorgeous. As you might be able to see this is a really small bottle and it's practically empty, thankfully my auntie got me the 100ml bottle for Christmas so I shouldn't run out for a while!

There are my 2014 beauty favourites; you may have noticed I did not include eyeshadow, this is simply because over the year there hasn't been one eyeshadow or one palette that has stood out to me so I decided to leave it out, maybe I'll find one within the next year!
