Feburary Beauty Favourites

Hi Everyone,

This months favourites are a bit shorter than usual as again I have mostly the same favourites this month, such as the Rimmel Stay Glossy and The MAC Eye shadows in Vanilla and Omega, So I don't have as many make up favourites this month.

Firstly is Clarins Beauty Flash Balm, Which I used in my Valentines F.O.T.D , It really helps make my make up last better on my skin and evens out my skin tone before foundation, as I have dry skin it also helps with those dry patches, stopping foundation cling to them as much. I don't use this everyday as Ive heard your skin can get too used to it, I'm not sure how true that is though, But its fantastic for when you really want your make up to stay perfect!

Next up is a brush I recently found in TK Maxx, its the Eco Tools Eyeshadow Brush, I've been looking for a eye shadow brush that is a bit larger than the norm and this is it, its extremely soft, synthetic, cruelty free and good for the environment with it being made out of bamboo! This has been perfect just to sweep my eye shadow over the entire lid for a less intense eye look, but it can be built up.

With the Brush I've been using a old favourite MAC Naked Lunch, I've used this for a change on a plain matte eye, to add a bit of shimmer to my everyday look, Its a pink shade with shimmer and is part of the Frost finishes by MAC, I use this across my lid over soft ochre paint pot.

Lastly is Heel Genius from Soap and Glory, this is a bit of a different beauty product for me, but as I'm in love with most of the rest of the Soap and Glory line, I thought id give this a go. Like the other things by Soap and Glory this smells amazing, with menthol, Orange and Lemon. It advises to use cotton socks and sleep over night with it on and this definitely makes a big difference. I've been using it every other night to prepare for all those Spring/ Summer Sandal's!
Overall most of my monthly favourites are favourites from last month, but I have rediscovered some old favourites too.
Have you tried any of these products, what did you think?
