My Beauty Must Haves – What’s In My Kit? – 2022

IMG_9167

A new year marks the start of a new collection.

As you can see from my blog, my beauty and skincare goals have evolved as the years go on – taking bits from different trends to create my own favourite style.

I decided with us entering a brand new year I would declutter my makeup bag – out with the old  – and probably expired! – in with the new products to rejuvenate my zest for makeup.

Also probably saving my skin from an abundance of breakouts – please remember to adhere to expiry dates and use by on your cosmetics your skin will thank you!

To start, I sat down and thought about what I would like from my make up kit – did I want full coverage? Sheer coverage? Was I looking for subtle or bold colours? Drugstore or Premium? Did I want my routine to be a quick 15minutes or a self indulgent few hours? From here I was able to decide on my new ultimate kit!

First I wanted a new bag for my new items, so I decided to kill two birds and buy some new mini brushes from Spectrum Collections as their ‘The High Flyer’ collection is half price at £25 and includes an adorable light pink and rose gold case. Use that link for an extra 15% off.

I made up my mind and wanted my new kit to offer me sheer coverage with subtle bronzer and blush, but products that I could easily build up coverage in case I needed fuller coverage. This is what I bought to suit my new look;

I’ll be showing off my new makeup over the upcoming weeks on my Instagram as well as on here, so keep your eyes open for the in-depth reviews!

Zoeva – Spectrum Blush Palette – Coral Spectrum

FullSizeRender

Highly pigmented, full colour blush palette in perfect for summer shades.

I’ve been looking for a blush palette that will be perfect for summer so decided to give this Zoeva palette a go. They have three palettes in three different spectrum sets – Coral, Nudes, and Pink. Each palette has four unique shades which can be used separate or mixed to create unique blush combinations.

I decided to try the coral spectrum palette first to get a good idea of the formula and pigmentation. The pressed powder blush glides on easy with good, but light, pigmentation which allows you to customise each look as well as build up the pigmentation to the desired effect. Each shade is delicious in their own right!

The packaging is very elegant, with rose gold lettering that turns into a colourful spectrum when the light hits it on a black silky smooth palette.  The palette doesn’t have a mirror in it, which isn’t a big deal as if I’m travelling I’m bound to have a mirror with me anyway!

Bottom Line: You get four unbelievably beautiful blusher shades in a cute and well designed palette for £15 – Do I really need to say any more than that?!
