5 Everyday Makeup Heroes

10 February 2018

Around three or four years ago I was utterly ob.sess.ed with makeup, you couldn’t tear me away from the stuff, and whilst I never wore particularly heavy looks, my use has definitely become more minimal over the years. Perhaps it's due to an increase in confidence in the way I naturally look, or perhaps laziness has overcome (probably the latter haha) but I find my spending more driven towards fashion, holidays and experiences than it ever was before.

Nowadays, I don't often find myself wearing more than about five products on my face on a very regular basis - that is if I even step out of the house wearing makeup at all. Mascara, brow products, concealer and lip gloss and I'm good to go. Here's my pick of the bunch:

Benefit Solar power
Revlon Lip Gloss
NARS creamy concealer
Makeup Forever Excessive Lash

Leopard Print.

I’m absolutely coat obsessed, adding at least a couple more to my collection year on year. Unfortunately, they don’t come cheap, so this year I took to scouting the charity shops around me for something a little lighter on the purse strings.
I was thrilled to come across this leopard print number, having been looking for one online for a while, and for only £5 I couldn’t resist. It's been on a fair few outings already, including our university fashion show last week where the above photos were taken. What do you think?

Looking back and forward.

It would be fair to say that the year doesn't normally get off to a good start with me.

The months drag and with the remnants of Christmas cheer long gone I find myself longing for the summer months again. It tends to affect my mood terribly, but whilst the melancholy may be setting in, I've been trying to cheer myself up with creating new plans for the summer whilst looking back on the old.

Luckily, Cheerz have been making it that little bit easier to do. I've been putting together one of their giant scrapbooks for a while, and finally got round to the actual sticking - it's therapeutic; calming, and I love the nostalgia of looking over where last summer took me. You can grab one for yourself here, or they'd make the perfect present for someone special in your love. Don't forget to use the code MADZWC if you do, for a £4 discount on your first order. They also make individual polaroid prints and many more which I think would look really cute for either decorating or safekeeping.

As for next summer, I'm hoping to travel some more, hopefully to South America this time - I particularly have my eye on Costa Rica - and a couple of festivals would be nice too. As the days start becoming longer, and the chill breeze is replaced by something a little milder, it's starting to feel like it might not be too far away.

What are your plans for the summer? Or where did last take you?
