Current Beauty Favourites

Hello :)
Today I'm going to be sharing with you my current beauty favourites, as I've been loving quite a few new things lately :)
Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation in Ivory
I've been using this foundation quite a lot lately, its good coverage, about medium I'd say and it has a lovely finish. I ordered this off of fragrance direct which is why this is a different bottle to the ones in Boots/ Superdrug but I'm not really sure if the actual foundation is different or not :/
Seventeen Phwoarr Paint in Fair
I'm really impressed with this concealer, I have inherited really bad dark circles so I'm constantly on the hunt for a good concealer which doesn't look really cakey and I definitely think I've found a gem in this one. If you don't have very dark circles I don't think this concealer would really be necessary for you but I have really been loving this and I will definitely re-purchase this many times!
L'Oreal Le Touche Magique Concealer in Natural Beige
Because I'm so conscious about my dark circles, I like to put an illuminating concealer over the top of the seventeen one and I've recently been using this one from L'Oreal because I really like the look it gives, it adds coverage and brightens my eyes without looking cakey at all.
Bourjois UNE Skin Glow Pencil
Sticking with brightening the eyes, I've recently been putting this nude pencil into my waterline to brighten and open my eyes. I got this off of Fragrance Direct, I'm not exactly sure if it's meant to be a concealer pencil or what its meant to be but its quite soft and perfect for using in the waterline.
MUA Blush Perfection Cream Blush in Blossom
I've really liked using this cream blusher from MUA lately, its a lovely natural pink colour and can easily be applied using my fingers, it lasts well and I really like the colour on my cheeks.
Sleek Contour Kit in Light
Now for the most exciting thing in this post by far. YAY, I finally got the ridiculously raved about Sleek contour kit, and it has not disappointed.
V05 Plump it up Dry Backcomb Spray
Lastly, is this dry backcombing spray, I had my eye on this for a while and I finally picked it up a little while ago, and I'm so glad I did. I'm not really sure how it works but it is amazing, it literally backcombs your hair without damaging it at all like backcombing it with a brush or a comb would.
So they are my current beauty favourites, what have you been liking lately?

Winter Beauty Essentials

I'd firstly like to apologise for not posting in absolutely AGES, I've been really really busy with school and other things lately and I haven't had the time to sit down and  take photos, plan and write a post, so thank you for being patient.
Now onto the post. As it's getting colder and colder outside, I thought I'd do a post telling you my beauty essentials for wintertime.
Good Things Face the Day Moisturiser - £7.99 here
I know that moisturiser is a product that is used all year round, but in winter I think it is more important to moisturise, especially if you are like me and the cold weather really dries out your face.
Hand Cream
Norwegian Formula Concentrated Hand Cream - £3.85 here
As well as drying out my face, cold weather also makes my hands very dry, thanks for that, winter. So hand cream is really essential to carry around and I really like this one, it doesn't smell amazing but I find sometimes heavily perfumed hand creams don't really do anything for my dry skin.
Lip Balm:
Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip balm Tin - £3.69 here
That's right, my lips also get really chapped in winter so I'm constantly putting lip balm on too. This one is minty and I really love it, I find that only natural lip balms do anything for my lips in terms of moisturising them especially in winter.
 Green Corrector:

 Natural Collection Green Corrector Stick - £1.99 here
Firstly I'm sorry for the horrible state of this product, I'm not really sure why, or if it's just me, but I get really red cheeks in winter so I reached straight for this and it really does work at correcting the redness so an essential for me.
Red Lipstick:
Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in 500 Diva Red - £6.49 here
I think that in winter red lipstick is definitely a staple, and really suits this time of year. I got this one before the moisture renew range was re-formulated and re-packaged but the same red colour is still available :).
Black Nail Polish:
Bourjois So Laque Nail Polish in Noir de Chine - £5.99 here
Call me a goth, but I think that dark nail polishes look really nice, especially in winter.
So that's my winter essentials, what are your winter beauty essentials?
