→ I've been really getting into contouring the past year. I wasn't blessed with naturally perfect cheek bones so contouring for me really is the only option. I have used a few different bronzers since I started defining my cheekbones and jaw a little more but am yet to try an actual contour kit. Everyone seems to be loving various Anastacia products at the moment; one being the contour kit. Obviously, I would get the light one for lighter shades but I like the mix of contour powders and setting powders... especially as I am also on the hunt for a yellow based powder to set the concealer under my eyes! This has it all!

→ I haven't yet tried any Laura Mercier products but I know they are very hyped about in the blogging world. I like a foundation that isn't too cakey and doesn't look like i'm slapping paint on my face. I am also quite pale and find most drug store foundations in 'Ivory' are too orange/yellow based for me. Therefore, I don't mind spending the extra pennies on something a little more expensive if it means it's going to work for me. This particular foundation from watching youtube reviews/tutorials, seems to be quite light and blends really well... not to mention it has a huge colour choice.

→ I have used the creamy concealer by NARS before and have to say it is without a doubt the best concealer I have ever used.  I religiously use my Collection lasting perfection concealer which I find is better for imperfections whereas I find the NARS concealer is better for under eye circles. I've just ordered a new one!

→ I have seen a few bloggers talk about the L'Oreal Smokissime pencil sticks and they look so good! I love the whole ~grunge/rockchick/just got out of bed look~ but never know how to do a black smokey eye for daytime because I find black eye shadow can end up going very grey after a few hours wear. The sponge applicator on the Smokissime stick makes it look so easy and quick to blend the product out on the eyelids, so I am looking forward to buying it when they're available!

→ I don't tend to ever buy high end mascaras purely because I think you can spend £10 on a good high street drugstore one that does near enough the same thing. However, I think I need to get my paws on the YSL Luxurious Mascara which claims to give a false lash effect in just a single stroke. The formula is enriched in a conditioning oil leaving lashes stronger and easier to layer on coats of the mascara for length. The applicator brush itself is a new design with nylon fibres of different lengths to give volume and length at the same time. 

The advert features Cara Delevigne effortlessly strutting herself, running and dancing around in a huge British house whilst then applying the mascara to her own lashes. I'm a massive lover of Cara so anything Cara loves then I need to try! It's available in six different shades and is out now. Find out more on the Twitter hashtag #YSLMascara
