November Favourites

November has been a strange month for me. The beginning was all about base makeup and creating the ultimate flawless look then after my operation makeup was taken completely off the menu and skincare became king.
A big part of creating a flawless base is a good combination of primers-I actually use more primer and concealer when building up a look than anything else- foundation is usually just a tiny amount blended in to finish airbrushing the look. My first product is always the gorgeous Nivea Express Hydration Primer (£4.99) from the Daily Essentials range which acts both as a light as air moisturiser and is a wonder for smoothing out any dry or oily patches all in one go. On top of this I've been really loving dabbing a little of the MAC Prep and Prime Fortified Skin Enhancer Illuminator (£23) which works beautifully to diffuse light, minimise the appearance of blemishes and create a lovely glowing complexion :)
My Real Techniques Expert Face Brush (£9.99) has been getting a lot of love lately. Its perfect for blending concealer, buffing foundation and contouring cheekbones so without fail I've been reaching for this every day and cannot recommend it enough.
For a long time, because I am so fair skinned I shied away from bronzing products, assuming they'd sit ridiculously dark on my skin and look a little muddy but now winter is here and the tan has worn off I've been loving the Soap and Glory Solar Powder (£11) very lightly applied to contour the face and give a very slight warmth without being too heavy. I literally swirl a blush brush through the product before tapping away any excess so I can be nice and light handed and just create a gentle glow.
My love for Nuxe has just been growing and growing lately and the product that started the love affair and gets the most use has to be the Miceller Cleansing Water with Rose Petals (£14.50) which I use daily, morning and night with a cotton pad to melt away any makeup effortlessly and refresh and soften the skin. I am a sucker for lazy but effective skin care so this is my number one product for keeping skin looking great without hours of foaming, scrubbing and general faffing.

So those are my most loved products from this past month. What have you been loving? If you'v written a similar post then link me up :)
