October Favourites.


Seriously!
This year just seems to be shooting by!
Another month gone and another 'favourites' post coming your way.
Christmas is quite literally just around the corner now and is it just me or does it not feel much like Winter at all?
The weather's not nearly cold enough yet and I still feel like we're somewhere in August.

Anyway, onto my actual favourites for this month.
First up has definitely been Bourjois' Healthy Mix Foundation (£9.99). Despite the weather not being cold enough to be deemed as proper Winter yet, it's still been cold enough for my skin to start drying out.
This foundation is my absolute go-to each Winter because of it's undeniable talent of not clinging to dry patches and adding a a lovely glow to the complexion. It blends beautifully and smells gorgeous - I honestly couldn't fault it if I tried.
Secondly has been an apparent favourite amongst other bloggers and youtubers alike and that's the Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot Primer (£10.00). I came across this when I was looking for a pore minimising primer after the demise of my Benefit PoreFessional. Safe to say it's definitely impressed me. It prolongs the wear of my foundation whilst simultaneously mattifying the complexion and minimising pores. I love it.
With the Winter season (and again, drier skin) comes the cream blushes and this one - Revlon's Cream Blush in Charmed Enchantment (£7.99)- is one of my all time faves. A beautiful berry shade that blends faultlessly across the cheeks for a rosy flush. I'm so happy I stumbled across this last year, it's been my go-to ever since. 
Lastly has been a hair favourite. Since I've started my training to become a hairdresser, I've been taking alot better care of my barnet. I mean, I took good care of it before, but only with products from the drugstore. Hair products - like makeup - work alot better when you spend that little bit extra. 
Anyway, one of the main brands of hair care at my salon is Paul Mitchell, and one of the reasons I love it is because it's totally affordable. Their Hot Off The Press (£15.95) is the best heat protectant I've ever used. Designed for use on dry hair it smells lovely and really does guard the hair from heat damage. Another one is their Heat Seal, which is designed for wet hair but a mixture of both means your hair has the best protection possible from hairdryers and flat irons. 

I hope you've all had an amazing October and a good Halloween.
Bring on Christmas.
