I know it's been a while but I'm still here guys, and surprisingly I have been wearing makeup and have pretty much been reaching for the same few products continuously over the past few weeks especially. I am currently in the middle of exam season which inevitably means I am stressed to shit. I'm not so great at exams and managing the stress and anxiety that accompanies them, I usually sleep very poorly hence the reason I reach for makeup when it is the last thing on my mind. These also double up as my current favourite products as well, so here's to a 2 in 1 post for you all.

Jouer Anti-Blemish Matte Primer (£29) This is a primer I have talked about before, I just find it really easy to use and I love that it has salicylic acid in here as well. Really handy for stressed out and sleep deprived skin, if you're struggling with similar issues I highly recommend using some organic face oils and some high intensity masks as well to rejuvenate and freshen up the complexion.

Sleek Makeup Lifeproof Foundation  in L10 (£9) I don't know what I did before this foundation, I have quickly fallen in love with it. It last really well on the skin, doesn't look cakey, is supremely buildable and doesn't settle into fine lines. My go-to for a good long lasting base. 

Makeup Forever Ultra HD Finishing Powder (£22) A powder that I have completely overlooked in the past, however I have noticed with this powder you need very little to set your whole face and everything blends like a dream on top. No weird white cast, and the mesh covering means very little mess as well which I really appreciate as someone who currently has two translucent powders spilled out on my floor. An oldie but a goodie. 

Sleek Face Form Kit in Medium (£5) Currently half price on Superdrug! And one of my ride or dies, it's just sheer perfection. I only use the contour shade to be honest, it is the perfect colour for my skin tone, blends easily and has the right neutral tone to not look too warm or too grey. Really love this and can't see myself ever not using it, which must be why I have mentioned it hundreds of times.

Becca Cosmetics Blush in Amaretto (OOS) The perfect shade to bring some life back to my zombie of a face, before this blush I didn't care for blush at all but this gorgeous colour really complements my skin tone and suits every makeup look. I love it!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Master Palette by Mario (OOS) Another product overlooked in my collection, I had forgotten how gorgeous the ABH shadow formula is, the unique thing I love about this palette is that I feel like I could chuck every single eyeshadow here onto my eyelids and still wind up with a beautiful look. The colours are that cohesive. A must have for brown eyes in my opinion, such a shame they discontinued it. I use it sparingly.

L'Oreal Voluminous Black Mascara (£10) I have mentioned this mascara before and it is one of those products I purchased purely because of the hype and the endless amount of love it received on YouTube. I didn't like it at first but lately I have been loving it, it creates such a pretty effect and has a great buildable formula. Something I have never really experienced with a lot of other mascaras, if I do two or more coats of mascara I get the most disgusting painted looking lashes that look spidery or clumpy. This mascara gives a very natural, soft and pretty effect but still brings the definition. 

Thank you so much for reading. I will definitely be trying to post more often and trying to get videos up as well. I am so sorry, my blog means a lot to me I just haven't had the motivation to keep going and keep posting and there are too many reasons for me to possibly name. Please let me know what posts you would like to see and if you have any exam/revision tips please share them in the comments as well as your favourite products. I would love to read them. Take care.

What are your current go-to products?
