September Favourites: Morphe, Makeup Forever, etc.




September Favourites

I feel like I have only just written a post about my favourites... this month went far too quickly. Today I bring another favourites post, like the others, it mainly focuses on beauty products, but I also throw in some extra things I enjoyed over the month that aren't beauty related. It you fancy a read of the last couple of posts, my August favourite post here and July favourites here. I will link the products within the title of each item, just in case you want to purchase it yourself.

I bought this and then completely forgot about it, I feel that might be a sign I own too many palettes. On second thoughts no, you can never have too many eye shadow palettes. I used this to go out a couple of nights ago and the pigmentation is amazing and the colours are beautiful. It'll definitely be something I will be reaching for (a lot) during the Autumn, even though it's called soul of summer!

I bought this foundation when I was in Los Angeles and used it a fair amount, but wouldn't of said I was in love with it, but it was definitely a good foundation. I never really took care of my skin at that point, I just relied on facewipes and primer. That was it. Since then I have more of a skin care routine and I feel like it's made a drastic difference to the foundations I am reaching for. This past month I've definitely gone back to using this one! It gives a medium to full coverage look, I prefer to go more towards the medium scale by spraying my foundation brush with some fix plus just before I buff it out. It's designed for looking flawless in photography and I would definitely agree with that, but it manages to do this without looking cakey on the skin in person. Definitely a win from me! 

I bought this brush because Jaclyn Hill rated it and I am a sucker and will basically buy anything that she touches (in a non-crazy stalker way). I love Morphe brushes generally, they are great quality for the price. This is the main one I use for foundation, it is a domed shape, synthetic brush that is great for blending. This is the brush I use with a spritz of fix plus to blend out the Makeup Forever foundation. 

This product is a nifty little thing. I hate cleaning my brushes, but really love using several different eyeshadows for one makeup look. If this is something you can relate to then I would highly recommend this product. It basically allows you to quickly switch between colours, making sure you don't accidentally put black shadow onto that shimmery gold shadow by accident! If you want some more info on this product, I have done a whole post on it here.

Music - Biffy Clyro: Ellipsis Album
I've always loved Biffy. They are just brilliant. They've just released a new album called Ellipsis and it is so good. However, this also annoys me as they also released a UK tour which has completely sold out. My favourite songs from the album are definitely 'Don't, Won't, Can't' and 'Friends and Enemies'. 

Music - Mumford & Sons: There will be time (song)
This song was actually introduced to me by my boyfriend. I'd never really listened to much of Mumford & Sons before as I wasn't a fan of the couple of songs that made it to the charts, however, this song is so catchy (and incredibly sweet). If you haven't listened to it, I'd definitely recommend it. 

TV - Gilmore Girls
My good old pal Chloe (find her blog here) started watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix a couple of months ago. I didn't even know it was on Netflix and got so excited when I found out it was! I used to watch this all the time with my mum, so I decided to watch them all from the start. I forgot how much I loved this show, it's also bringing back some serious nostalgia for me! I feel like this program is also very much a Autumn/Winter kind of series, but I have no idea why I feel like that.
