This is what I’m currently testing, using and loving.
Before I took these carefully choreographed photos, because, let’s face it – this is not how my shelf looks every day, I did a cull on products that have expired or I don’t use anymore and managed to clean out a good amount. Now it’s much clearer what products I actually use on a day to day basis: one tinted moisturiser, one CC cream, one foundation, Real Technique brushes, cream eyeshadows and, what I think, a pretty small skincare collection.
For skincare, I’m trying to tailor it more to my skin type and skin needs (read: scarring, dry patches, oily t-zone and big pores), rather than testing every single product. It seems to be working. As you can see though, I do have a large array of face masks – and this isn’t everything I own! Whoops!
For makeup, there’s an obvious minimalistic approach. I’m all for simplicity and warm tones.
What has been a complete life changer but not pictured because I totally forgot about it (darn colour scheme) is my BEAUTY BLENDER. Holy moley. Best. Way. To. Apply. MakeUp. EVER. Just wet the sponge, dab in your product and you look bloody perfecto.
