I'm attempting to beat the January Blues by rekindling my love affair with make-up. I don't always have the time to sit back and luxuriate in an hour or so of primping and preening myself but, I still like to dig into my collection (which, by the way, seems to be spiralling out of control but, more on that later) and enjoy changing up my look when the mood strikes. Granted, it's nothing drastic but, a bright lip here, a purple smokey eye there, can do wonders for the mood which, let's face it, can be pretty dour during January!
After a make-up heavy month in December, I have been leaning towards more of a neutral look this month. I've rediscovered a few old products in my collection and have really been enjoying some newer products which, brace yourselves, even includes a lipgloss! It's not a permanent thing and within two minutes of stepping outside the house I felt like I was choking on all the hair that had become welded to the gloss. Oh well, I tried!

Apologies that these shots aren't as sharp as they usually are. The weather was dismal the day I was doing all my blog photos and it was hard to get anything remotely clear. However, I think you can kind of see everything that you need to! I loved using the pink Chanel Eyeshadow Stylo as something a bit different and how the MAC Swiss Chocolate shade really warmed up the crease.
Also, just to further my point that my make-up collection has been expanding rather rapidly lately, that NARS powder you see above is new and, while there is a full post coming up later this week, I would just like to say that it is the ultimate powder. Sarah, you were so spot-on!
Any particular make-up bits or trends you've been loving lately?
