November Necessities ♥


Heyy everyone, I hope your all doing well. Can't believe it's already the end of the month, time is absolutely flying! Recently I haven't really been experimenting with any crazy makeup looks & have been keeping it simple with really neutral bronze eye looks and really perfecting and bronzing the skin. I've been taking a break from wearing eyeliner and it actually saves me so much time in the morning. So here is what I've been loving the past month (some of these are old favorites). 

My November Necessities:

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation in shade Linen: 
This has been in my favorites since I started using it regularly in July. A bit pricey but so worth it! Full coverage and long lasting. Love this so much! 
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation in Vanille Clair: 
I've only been using this for about 2 weeks, as it is new, but so far I'm loving mixing it with my double wear foundation. It smells amazing and blends beautifully onto the skin. 
Makeup Forever Duo Mat Powder in Ivory: 
As you'll see in the pictures I have definitely hit pan on this, and thankfully I bought a backup last week! This is an amazing powder, I use it in the mornings to set my foundation, I carry it with me for touchup's during the day and never have to worry about it looking cakey. Highly recommend this! 
Annabelle Bronzer: 
This is my 3rd time repurchasing this bronzer, it is absolutely amazing. I will keep repurchasing this as long as it's sold in stores. 
Maybelline Dream Mousse Bronzer in Glistening Sun:
I do sometimes use this on my cheeks, but more often than not I will use this on my eyelids for a really quick, effortless bronze neutral eye look or as a base for eyeshadow. It has pretty good longevity, especially applied over a primer (I use UD primer potion).
Maybelline Pressworthy Pink Blush:
 This was a limited edition blush, not sure if you can still find it but I adore it so much and thankfully I have a backup. It's a bit darker than your average baby pink blush and I like that. A little bit goes a long way with this blush.
Makeup Forever Lipgloss: 
Just got this from Sephora using my points card, it's a gorgeous pink-gold shade (think Nars Orgasm) and is quite sheer but buildable. I'm not really one to wear much on my lips but if I have felt the need to this is what I've been reaching for. 
Avon Supershock Mascara in Black (pictured below): 
I've just recently started using this again and fell completely back in love with it. This has everything I look for in a mascara; length and volume. Love this so much, wish it was a bit easier to purchase though. 

Lancome Eyes & Face Palette in Golden Splendor:
 I believe this was a limited edition palette from last Christmas, and I only just started using it frequently since the summer. It's such a gorgeous palette, full of pinks and golds with a beautiful peachy pink blush on the right. I will be so sad when this palette finishes. 
Eco Tools Powder Brush: 
Love using this brush with my Duo Mat powder, I find that it really presses the powder into my foundation, really setting my makeup. I sometimes throw it in my makeup bag and use it for touchups during the day. 


 And those have been my November Necessities (I know most people say favorites but I'm trying to be a bit different.... October Obsessions.. November Necessities....). 
Hope you enjoyed it, please comment & follow. Have a lovely evening everyone.
