Happy Birthday Katy! / Blogtober

Today is my sisters Birthday! So to celebrate, I asked Katy to pick her favourite beauty products and thought I'd share her thoughts..

Fake Bake Flawless Coconut Tanning Serum for Face & Body (£30)

"I have really fair skin and often struggle to find a Fake Tan that would make my skin look bronzed without looking orange. This one works perfectly. It's easy to use and I go back to it time and time again!"

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (£19)

"I am bad for pulling my eyelashes out and so for me, having a good mascara that will fill out the ones I have left is really important. This one is a bit pricey but it lasts ages and I've never been disappointed by it yet."

Smashbox Photo Finish Primerizer (£30)

"Holly bought a travel sized version of this to try out from the Sephora aisle of doom (you know the one I mean right by the checkouts!) and since then, I've been obsessed with this! It's like a serum that primes your skin and makes your makeup last longer. I really like this and would love to find a drugstore dupe!"

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge (£5.99)

"If in doubt, opt for Real Techniques. It's a brand that never lets me down and I love their Miracle Complexion Sponge. I've tried other sponges but they just don't do it for me. The fact these cost £5.99 means I can replace them quite often too (I can never get them fully clean!).


"I'm often between shades of foundation, so the fact that MUFE have 37 shades of this available is ideal. This feels really lightweight but has a decent coverage. It does oxidise slightly but not too much. I love that this lasts ages but I dislike the price tag! Ahh!"

NARS Cosmetics Radiant Creamy Concealer (£24) 

"I love the Nars concealer and how creamy it is. It has a medium to full coverage which is ideal for my dark undereyes and the fact that it has 17 shades is a big bonus too!"

Garnier Moisture Bomb Mask (£2.99)

"I'm a bit lazy when it comes to skincare so I prefer masks that don't require rinsing off after using it. This is a sheet mask that is covered in a serum. I love the Pink one and sometimes the charcoal one is nice too. At £2.99 it's a steal".

So there you have it straight from the Birthday girl herself!

What beauty bits are your favourites?
