Ever look at something and just decide there and then you need this in your life no questions asked? Yeap that was me when I saw that the Anastasia Contour Kit had come back into stock on Cult Beauty. Before I knew it the palette was on its way to me and in my grubby paws.
Iconic brow brand Anastasia launched one of the most covetable face palettes of the year. A selection of 6 different shades designed to perfectly contour and shape the face. With a mix of both sateen and matte textures this palette is not one to skip on if you’re into your contouring. All of the shades are neutral in tone which means they work on a variety of skin tones to create dreamy model like cheekbones.
This palette has caused a bit of a frenzy among those in the beauty know and it comes in and out of stock all the time. It’s currently in stock and Cult Beauty also have a £5 off when you spend £45. I’d recommend picking this up and the Anastasia Brow Whiz while you’re at it!

I've been reaching for three products on No makeup makeup days to give myself a natural but flawless base. To prep the skin I applied the Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector onto bare skin to give a fresh, dewy feel to the skin. Then on top apply my foundation of choice the Laura Mercier Silk Creme. This is medium to full coverage, but very build-able so I often use a tiny tiny amount and buff buff buff for good coverage with minimal product. Now to sculpt the face - I've been reaching for my Tarte The Sculptor, this is a creamy chubby pencil which can be used to contour and shape the face. I adore this and have been using it pretty much daily since I purchased it. It works by giving the perfect shadow and shape to the face and it's creamy formula is super blend-able and looks so natural.

The shade on pretty much everyone in the beauty worlds lips right now is Charlotte Tilbury Glastonberry. Part of a drop of 12 amazing matte revolution lipsticks, it's the shade to be seen in this winter. Unfortunately at £23 a pop they arent in everyones price bracket. While I'm on a Glastonberry hype right now I've been on the hunt for a more affordable alternative for those wanting the look for less. In comes Topshop More Than a Woman.
A super pigmented creamy dark purple, which is slightly more purple in tone than Charlotte's offering. While not as matte or long lasting as the high end counterpart it definitely looks similar and costs a fraction of the price. Totally worth a swatch if you're near a Topshop beauty counter!
