This month makeup wise I've still been loving using bronzer but I've been turning to my Body Shop pressed powder in 06 instead of my beloved Hoola. I've just been doing this as I've found using this shade is much more subtle and it blends into my skin tone really nicely. I can use this as my day to day powder during the summer but normally at this time of year it doesn't get much use. Recently I haven't been able to go without it!
Now things have definitely felt colder and more wintery in October so the dark lips have begun to return. I've been relying on MAC's Plumful to ease me into the berry and vampy lip trend. It's so easy to wear as it does last well but it fades gradually so you aren't left with a line around your lips! Also because it's very pinky it isn't too harsh and isn't a super obvious dark lip.
For me October has been a month of parties and I've loved it! More often than not I'll opt for a smokey eye when heading to a party and the L'Oreal Color Riche Mono Eye Shadow in Quartz Fume has been my go to product. I simply pat this all over my lid, blend into the crease and out. Easy. It creates the perfect eye for a night out. The eye shadow blends out beautifully and is really pigmented. You do get a little bit of fall down but nothing a touch of concealer can't sort out!
So I've been really enjoying Lush products in general throughout October. They recently released their Christmas and Halloween products and like pretty much everyone, these are my favourites! My mummy treated me to a few bits and this little Christmas Hedgehog Bubble Bar is all I have left in my stash :( To be honest I'll probably end up getting another one of these because I can't bear to crumble him into my bath! I recommend popping into lush to look at their goodies if you get the chance. They make any bath feel special and personally I wouldn't mind finding a cheeky bath bomb in my Christmas stocking...
As well as bath time treats I've been loving a little luxury in my showers recently. The Estee Lauder Sensuous Nude Shower Crème is beautiful! It's a really rich and moisturising shower crème which is always needed at this time of year. It has a musky scent with a hint of rose that I think feels really cosy! This is expensive for what is essentially a shower gel so chances are I won't repurchase it, but I'll certainly enjoy it while it's still in my shower.
I was lucky enough to be given a Pandora bracelet for my 16th birthday and after I got my GCSE results my mum said I could have two more charms as a little gift. We finally got round to picking out the charms I wanted this month! I chose the silver stack of study books, I thought that was quite suitable and they're sooo cute! As well as this I chose the stunning pink pave heart charm. I like that this breaks up the silver of the other charms and it sparkles so beautifully. I've been wearing the bracelet pretty much everyday and I love it even more with my new charms...thank you mummy!!
Like I've already said, October has been jam-packed with parties and these shoes have been my saviour! I picked them up from New Look and they are probably the comfiest shoes I've got! Seeing as I'm 5ft I'm always in need of a good heel, and the great platform on these mean I can dance all night without my feet hating me! They are looking a little grubby now and do need a little bit of a clean but I guess that shows they've been well loved!
So that's all of my favourites from October! I've actually really enjoyed October in general. I feel like I've properly settled into my new school and A Levels, I've had some really good nights with my friends and I returned to Bournemouth again! I know I've missed two weeks of blog posts but I feel like I should be back into the swing of things now and I have quite a few posts planned out. HINT- things are getting festive soon ;)
