JANUARY FAVOURITES

As one of my New Year's resolutions for my blog, I wanted to write a 'monthly favourites' post and also film a video to go with it. I've already filmed the video which is now live, and I've linked that down below for you to watch. The video is more of a chatty run through of my January favourites and goes into a bit more detail about why I've been loving the particular things.

I'm going to try my hardest to do these every month, and even if I don't get round to filming a video every month (which I'm hoping to be able to do), I will definitely be writing a post on here!



JANUARY FAVOURITES:

MAKE-UP:
I was a bit skeptical about trying out H&M's new make-up range at first, just because I thought that it was a bit of an odd thing for them to bring out. However, after trying this eyeshadow I can firmly say that I will be buying more of these! The quality is great for the price, the packaging is very sleek and the eyeshadow itself blends beautifully. I've been wearing this most days as a light wash all over the lid.

This lipstick has been my go-to shade and has stayed in my handbag for the whole of January pretty much! I love the formula of this lipstick because it feels really comfortable and hydrating on the lips. I do love wearing Matte lipsticks but I felt like I'd worn them so much over Christmas that my lips were craving something a bit softer and more hydrating. The colour is also a gorgeous brown toned nude which is the perfect nude shade for Winter because its not too pink and pale. Definitely going to be buying some more shades from this collection!

You would have seen me talk about this contour kit a few times now, but it has been a favourite of mine since I bought it. I mainly use the lightest brown shade to contour as it has a lovely grey tone to it which creates the perfect shadow illusion. I also use the banana shade every day to set the concealer underneath my eyes and down the centre of my nose because it really helps to brighten and set for the whole day. The powders are really light and creamy and blend really well, they look very natural on the skin too which I like and you can't tell that you've got any powder on.


SKINCARE AND HAIRCARE:
This cleanser has been my skin savour over the past year. It's designed for oily to combination skin which is perfect for me, and gives such a deep cleanse. Since using this my breakouts have decreased dramatically and my skin feels so much less oily. I feel like it removes the excess oil on the skin but still leaves you feeling hydrated. The gel formula is also really softening on the skin and lathers up to a soft foam. I use this every morning and night without fail and I can't fault it!

I used to suffer from a lot of scarring and dark pigmentation on my face from where I had previous breakouts and nothing seemed to fade these marks until I found this product. It's designed to correct the appearance of imperfections and marks on the skin, and even out your skin tone. Since using this, my skin is so much more even and I hardly have any scarring left over. I use this every day now as part of my daily skincare routine, and when I suffer from a breakout, the marks almost fade immediately after the blemish has gone. Miracle worker!

I don't usually take a lot of care with my hair admittedly, but recently I've been using this product after washing my hair before blowdrying and it was recommended by my hairdresser. It's basically a hair oil which aims to give your hair a smooth and sleek feel to it and also tame down any frizzyness. I really like this so far and it has made my hair feel really shiny and healthy. You can also use this product on dry hair to smooth out any untamed hairs and add shine after styling.


FASHION:
This was one of my birthday presents which I've talked about in my previous post, but I haven't taken it off since I got it. It's a really sophisticated style and can be worn for an evening occasion as well as everyday, and I think it looks really understated and classic. I'm not usually a fan of wearing gold, and most of my jewellery is silver, but something drew me to this one. The gold isn't too yellow and bright and because of the dark face, it tones it down a bit from being really 'blingy'. I also quite like mixing gold and silver together.


If you've seen my January favourites video then you will know that I used to hate the thought of wearing trainers casually. I used to think that trainers should only be worn for sports and the gym and I didn't understand why people would want to wear them during the day with jeans etc. However, my opinion of this has strongly changed and I now love wearing trainers for a casual look during the day. These ones especially are super comfy and go with almost anything. I love the effortless style they give to an outfit and I can't wait to build up my trainer collection even more, because there are many more pairs that I've got my eye on!


What have been some of your January favourites?

Love Emily
