Must Have Make-Up Products for 2017

Hi everyone!

So with 2017 into full swing, I have selected a few of my essential beauty products for this year. I tried to choose 6 products only, but as you can see, that didn't quite go to plan...Woops! Everything will be linked in their titles - so go have a peep!

Zoeva - Rose Golden Eyeshadow Palette
The first product which I am currently in love with is the Zoeva Rose Golden Palette. All of the shades within this palette are my absolute must-haves. It's a very bronzed/nude/golden toned palette, and there genuinely isn't one shade I wouldn't use. This palette is also so affordable at only £18 and I mean, look how pretty it is!

Benefit - Erase Paste
I genuinely LOVE this product. I cannot believe it has taken me SO long to discover it. Thanks to the gorgeous Sarah Ashcroft I saw this in one her of tutorials and thought it would be well worth a try. It literally does what it says on the tin. Erases. Dark circles? No problem. Outbreak? Got you covered. This paste covers anything and everything you want/need it to. This also comes in varied shades too which makes it suitable for a variety of skin tones.

Stila - Star Light Star Bright Highlighting Palette
Not only is it the most prettiest highlighting palette you've ever seen, but the varied shades are so gorgeous. To touch, the colours don't feel like make-up. So smooth and glossy. The shades aren't overly pigmented, but they are certainly build-able.

Benefit - They're Real - Push Up Liner
I am the queen of terrible eyeliner winging. However, this definitely makes it a LOT easier. This eyeliner is somewhere inbetween a gel and a paste? Does that make sense? It is so smooth, so easy to apply, and makes winging your eyeliner a hell of a lot more easier! (Always a win in my eyes).

MAC - Honey Love Lipstick & Soar Liner
Like a dreamy chocolate and cheesecake pairing, these 2 products go together like a dream! I have really tried to find other lipsticks that I love as much as the MAC ones, but I can't. The consistency of the matte lipsticks are so beautiful, the liner has the perfect setting. If you love a nude/mauve combo - this it it!

Laura Geller - Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator (Shade - Gilded Honey)
Holy-highlighter. At last but not least, my absolute must have product for the year. I have used this highlighter for about a year? And I just recently got another in my favourite shade in the 2016 Feel Unique advent calendar, and I am just loving life. This highlighter is just golden. I literally don't even know what to type to tell you how AMAZING this highlighter is. It just is, Go get it. NOW! (By the way, I use this with the Stila palette too. They really compliment each other beautifully!)

I hope you enjoyed all of my must haves for 2017! Let me know if you decide to purchase any and also let me know which products I should be trying this year!

Lots of love,

Hi everyone!

Happy new year to you all! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year! And if you didn't, its ok. You got this. It's a new year to start again.

I'm not really the kind of person to set New Years Resolutions. Let's be honest, I know I won't stick to them so it's just a waste of time! My main focuses for this year are just to generally be more happy. Just making sure I'm always happy in what I'm doing and that I'm always thinking of myself first. Unfortunately I don't do it enough and it really does me no favours! The second thing is this blog. I love working on this blog so much, but with a full-time job, it is bloomin' hard! But I don't care! It makes me happy and so I'm going to do more of it.

I've decided to get fully organised with my posts and uploading. I was going to select an upload day, but sometimes I have commitments out of my control, and I hate to let people down, so I'm just going to try and upload at LEAST once a week!

I decided it was time to get myself super organised and invest into some gorgeous notebooks to keep me going!

These two GORGEOUS notebooks are from Coconut Lane. They are so affordable, so beautiful and look so pretty on your working desk, bedside table or just look cute on a shelf. They're almost so pretty I don't want to write in them. I decided one is fully dedicated to blogging, the other is for my general day-to-day life! To see more of what Coconut Lane stock (pre-warning, I want everything...) visit their website here, and you can also use my discount code of 'lovechelsea20' to get 20% off everything!

I just want to say thank you all SO much for your support over this last year. I had no idea that so many of you would actually read what I write and enjoy it! Since 2017 is a new year, and with new years comes new starts, I have finally set up an Instagram account for my blog! My current Instagram will still remain, but if you want to see more of what products I'm using and more 'bloggery' stuff, head over to @lovechelsx on Instagram!

I have a 2017 Must Have Make-up Products post coming next, so keep an eye out for that!

Let me know what your new years resolutions are and if you have stuck to them yet!

Lots of love,

Chelsea x
