My Top 5 Current Beauty Faves

Over the last few months, I’ve bought quite a few new makeup bits and rediscovered some old favourites which I’ve been really loving lately. As we’re now into summer and still working from home my makeup routine has changed a little. So, I thought I’d share with you my top 5 current beauty favourites!

Estee Lauder Double Wear Mascara

I bought this mascara a couple of months ago and I’m completely obsessed with it. It’s very similar to the Benefit BADgal BANG mascara, which has been my go-to since it was released. The brush is nice and thin which makes it so much easier for me to apply to my top and bottom lashes and coats each, individual lash. I love the way it makes my lashes look too, so long and fluffy and I have zero issues with smudging or flaking. This mascara will stay put until I take it off at night!

Current Beauty Favourites

Hourglass Luminous Flush Ambient Lighting Blush

Hourglass is one of my favourite brands for blushes and lately, I’ve been loving the shade Luminous Flush. It’s a super pretty yet subtle pink shade that gives your skin a really natural flush that’s I think is perfect for the summer months and for those ‘no makeup’ makeup looks. It also has a bit of shine to it to give you a healthy, glowing look which I’ve been loving.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer

The Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Bronzer is well worth the hype. I’ve used it every single day since I bought it last month and I’m still amazed at how great it is. It blends so nicely into my skin and is so easy to build up for a more intense look. It gives your skin a super pretty, natural sun-kissed look about and paired with the Hourglass blusher it’s just a flawless summer look!

Neals Yard Purifying Palmarosa Cleanser and Toner

After getting a mini set of the Neals Yard Purifying Palmarosa collection for Christmas I’ve been obsessed and have bought the full-sized versions. The cleanser and toner has done absolute wonders for my skin. When I use it daily it really keeps any oiliness away and it clears up any blemishes so quickly. My skin has been the best it’s ever been this year which I believe is mainly down to these products!

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Star Highlighter

Lastly, I have not been able to get enough of the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Star Highlighter! I bought this pretty recently and included it in my Charlotte Tilbury Haul. And, like the bronzer, have used it pretty much every day since. It’s a super intense golden glow that looks absolutely stunning and I always look forward to applying it!


Those are all of my current beauty favourites. Let me know in the comments if you love any of these products too!

      The mascara is really good! Yes! They do loads of stuff haha. I didn’t know the Double Wear range was more than just foundation though haha. It is a beautiful blusher and exactly, just the right shade of pink for spring/summer ?
