My Top 10 Favourite Beauty Products So Far This Year 2016

These past seven months have been one hell of a make-up journey. My collection has nearly tripled what it was at the start of this year and I've tried hundreds of different, new and exciting products which I have loved and loathed. So far this year I have been loving quite a few products and I've narrowed it down to my top ten.

Mua Undress Your Skin Highlighter in Iridescent Gold
Did someone mention the only highlighter I've used throughout the duration of this year? This one by MUA is a shimmery, golden yellow shade which is highly pigmented. I get a lot of compliments and questions about what I've got on my cheekbones and it's always this. For only £3.00 this gives off the most beautiful highlighted finish you could imagine.

Diego Dalla Palma in Antique Pink
We all have our favourite go-to shade which goes with absolutely everything and this Diego Dalla Palma lipstick is the perfect one for me. It's a feminine pretty pink your lips but better shade as well as being very creamy which doesn't dry out your lips.

Born Pretty Shimmer Loose Powder*-Post
When I received this powder from the Born Pretty team I didn't think I would love it as much as I do. However, I use this on all of my clients and the majority of eye looks that I create as it adds the most beautiful shimmer and inner corner highlight to any eye look. I especially love using this with some MAC fix+ as it makes it 10x more pigmented whilst topping off any look.

Make-Up Revolution Ultra Cream Contour Palette
I didn't understand the hype of cream products until I tried this contour palette; I'm now hooked! This palette has a variety of warm and cool toned contour shades as well as a few highlighting creams, ideal for different skin tones. There is one shade within this palette which I use non-stop and that is a cool toned taupe colour, it works perfectly to compliment my pale complexion, not only this but it's beautifully creamy and easy to work with.

Ganique Lash Enhance Booster
It sucks having the shortest lashes in the whole entire world, I mean, who wants small lashes anyway? They do nothing for you. Long wispy lashes are the way to a girls heart and that's what I desire. Therefore the way forward is to use the lash enhancer by Ganique, I've found that my lashes have become somewhat more prominent and there. I've noticed that I've had lashes which were not there before and the sparse areas are denser which proves that this enhancer is working wonders for my lashes.

Imperial Leather Fruit Salad Shower Gel-Post
When it comes to a good smelling shower gel, sweet is my personal preference. The first time in which I used this shower gel I noticed my mouth beginning to water, the scent was so good I wanted to eat it! You know a smell is good when you're on the verge of tasting a bit! Not only that but it lathers wonderfully in the shower as well as making your skin and body feel smooth and smelling sublime.

Body Shop Mango Hand Cream-Post
Since I finished my first Body Shop mango hand cream the others which I've tried have not compared to how amazing this one is. There is something about this hand cream which makes me go back every time, maybe it's its fruity mango scent or the fact that it seeps into your hands within a second. Although you can find cheaper hand creams they're not in the same league as this one, it's creamy, hydrating, softening, smoothing and all round wonderful.

NSPA Hot Cloth Polish-Post
This hot cloth polish has by far changed the way my skin looks and feels; it's a game changer. My skin has never felt so good! I've been using this consistently since November last year and it's fair to say I've got fewer spots and smoother and more even skin which is ideal for feeling more confident when wearing no make-up. Everyone needs this in their lives!

Batiste Coconut and Exotic Tropical Dry Shampoo
I've had numerous cans of Bastiste's dry shampoo before and enjoyed using each and every one of them but, this coconut and exotic tropical scent is incredible. Everyone knows Bastiste for their brilliant hair care products and this one, in specific the scent, is not one to go amiss.

Schwarzkopf Gliss Hair Repair Conditioner
Recently I've been focusing on maintaining my hair's health and with this conditioner spray, I've found my hair to be smoother, silkier and stronger. After I've got out of the shower I like to towel dry my hair and spray this in from root to tip to ensure my whole head is covered. Once my hair has dried I've noticed my hair looking extremely healthy and alive; it has changed the way my hair looks and feels.

Now that we've gone past the half way stage of the year I would love to know what you've been loving. It will be interesting to see if these remain my top products of the year. Thanks for reading, you can find me here:
