Hi everyone! Its about 10 hours before 2014 and I thought I would wrap up what I enjoyed for 2013. Some were bought this year and some are very favourites for quite a while.
I have always been quite a blush hoarder and for me the Chanel cream blushers were the ones that blew me away. I love its longevity and overall look and can't wait to get more when the Spring 2014 collection comes out. I have my eye on Intonation. I discovered new favourites Rouge Bunny Rouge. I think the Blush Wand and the Original Skin blush in Gracilis is simply beautiful. Above are some of the rest of my blush collection that I reach out often this year.
I love the versatility and the quality of these overall palettes. As you can see I lean towards neutrals.
These are m eye shadow singles that I can't live without. I have been using Laura Mercier's Caviar Stick in Rosegold as a base lid colour almost everytime I put on makeup. The Chanel Illusion d'ombres and still on of my favourite cream eye shadows and Burberry is hard to beat.
These are the lipsticks I don't mind buying more of.
This is the year for makeup brushes for me. I kinda went into a mini brush hoarding frenzy. These are some of my favourite and most used brushes.
Finally, some non makeup items. I'm a noob when it comes to matching accessories with my outfits so I don't buy that many. But these are the two arm candies that I really love. And I must show my new loves, my Jo Malone scents. I have been wearing them everyday whether I'm going out or not. Being surrounded by such beautiful scents are indeed comforting an glorious.
I hope 2013 has been an awesome year for you like it was for me. I had my ups and downs but all in all this has been a great year for me. I am now officially 40 and a dance instructor. I have visited my bucket list destination not once but twice, conquered my fear of snorkelling and am gaining strength for my pole dance.
Here are some of my favourite 2013 pictures in no particular order.
I took this video of some pole moves I have been practicing for a really long time. It is called a shoulder mount followed by a caterpillar climb and a dismount. I am so glad I am finally able to mount the pole without help. The caterpillar climb needs more work but I'm very happy with it.
For 2014 I want to be more open to new experiences and try not to be so afraid to try new things. What about you?
