Beauty Favourites: November 2017

beauty favourites

Forgive the radio silence: I’ve been moving. I feel as though I’ve said that a lot over the last few years, but I’m hoping that this will be the last time. Actually, I can tell you that it will be the last time – there’s no way I’m moving again. For a start, I’m in my house of dreams (it’s Georgian and has shutters at the windows!) but the main reason is that all of my family would disown me. I think that tolerance levels for my various enthusiasms and projects have peaked – we’ve done renovations, we’ve done cross-country relocations and now we’ve done “the big move”. All whilst growing and raising two babies, which is stressful enough in itself.

I want to do some blog posts on our relocation and house-hunt in the new year, so keep a look out for those. I won’t be doing a house tour because it always feels a bit creepy to be giving the world a guide to your home’s layout and contents (“hello there! Do come in – television and laptop is on your left, bag collection just to the top of the stairs!”) but you’ll see a lot of it in the backgrounds of videos and photos. So I’ll leave it up to your imagination to piece parts of it together – I couldn’t honestly be happier, it’s the house I would always have drawn if someone had asked me where I would most like to live.

Anyway, I’ve gone off piste here – I only checked in, on my dodgy tethered-to-the-iPhone internet connection, to post up my November Favourites. There are a couple of absolutely brilliant fashion buys here as well as the usual beauty – the Label Mix sweater at Next* is amazing and the little glittery star constellation ring from Warehouse* is only eight pounds and makes a very cute stocking filler…

I’ve had a lot of requests for a run-down of my hair and makeup look in this video – I can’t for the life of me remember what I used, so need to go under hypnosis or similar and try to tap into my subconscious. I know that I used Max Factor cream eyeshadow to highlight the inner corners of my eyes, and the mascara is good old Clarins Supra, but the rest of it? I’ll have to do some serious memory-searching.

Watch, enjoy, share – all of the featured products are listed below the video pane for quick reference.
