Shopping the stash #1

Shopping the stash is a term which was coined by Lollipop26 - a very successful You Tube beauty guru. Lollipop26 aka "Laura" has now retired from You Tube much to the disappointment of her followers and now runs a fantastic blog Buynowbloglater if you haven't checked out her blog, it is full of fashion and makeup and another one of my favourite topics .....shopping. Another one of my very favourite bloggers is The Sunday Girl, she also shops her stash on a weekly basis and I though it would be a fantastic way to start the new year as I am on a strict budget during January. I feel like I have been piling on the make up and nail polish over Christmas so this week I want to keep my makeup and nails as natural as possible.


I will be keeping my complexion natural and dewy with an application of Dr Jart Beauty Balm and a little Clarins Instant Light Complexion Perfector followed by some Benefit Bronzing Powder in Dallas to help add some colour to my pasty winter skin. I will be applying my treasured Mac Stereo Rose Mineralize Skin Finish to the apples of my cheeks to give them a rosy glow and to disguise any pesky spots I will be using my Bobbi Brown Concealer in Porcelain. Dark circles will be banished with my Loreal Lumi Magic Concealer.


The rest of my face will be kept simple with some Chanel Ilusion D'ombre in Emerveille on my eyelids and a generous helping of Soap and glorys wonderful Thick and Fast Mascara - keep an eye on for a review on this, its amazing and I have had so many compliments when I wear it. I will also be reaching for Rimmels Lipstick in Glam and Korres Jasmine Lip Butter to keep my lips moisturised and glossy.
