Okay, I'm not going to ditch all of my makeup. But I have actually been converted to a new foundation (amongst other things). I'm finally parting ways with my Nars Sheer Glow and replacing it with Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder foundation

When I've tested this foundation in the shop, the light fluid texture of it has always put me off. This is mostly because I'm comparing it to Sheer Glow (which I thought was the be all and end all of foundations). But, even though Sheer Glow is a lightweight, dewy foundation, I find the actual formula quite thick which makes it harder to distribute a thin layer, giving a sort of caked effect.

The Charlotte Tilbury foundation glides onto your skin and leaves a lovely dewy glow that doesn't look oily after a few hours. 
Unlike other foundations I've tried, Light Wonder lasts all day. And it actually amazed me. I find it quite hard to find a foundation that matches my skin tone (I use number 2), is long-lasting and is in a great sized bottle thats easy to travel with - Light Wonder ticks all the boxes.

Next up is the Filmstar Bronze and Glow. Now I've read through endless amazing reviews of this product, and always just put it down to hype. I mean, how good can it actually be? And for £50? Please. 
But Oh. My. God. This product is a holy grail. The bronzer will become your new best friend as it is soooo easy to contour with. The colour is actually bronzed and not orange in the slightest, unlike a lot of other bronzers, which is extremely helpful for us porcelain skinned people. However, the highlighter is quite sunkissed and made of a golden base, which makes me worry that this palette wouldn't be great in the Winter months. But we'll approach that hurdle when it comes. 

Finally, I'm also ditching my love for Mac's lipliner in Soar. Yes, you did me well when trying to mimic Kylie Jenner lips and my god have you lasted a long time, but I'm moving onto Pillow Talk now. 
This lipliner shade is just a tiny bit different to my actual lip colour, so when used all over it gives the effect of a plumped, 'just been bitten' effect. If you dab a little bit of Mac's Creme Cup lipstick in the middle of your lip then this is your go-to shade for an everyday look. 
 

P.S Did you see my Instagram post last week showcasing the Charlotte Tilbury Book of Magic that will be released this Christmas?!?! It contains 12 full and sample sizes products for the buyer.
