I experimented a lot more with make up this year and had a lot of fun with different lip and eye combinations, strong brows and tried more shades of blush. I spent the majority of the hot Summer months wearing very little make up, mostly mascara and a bright lipstick. I also tried out lots of softer looks with pinks and peachy shades. My most worn products of the year were Estée Lauder Double Wear Light foundation, Bourjois Volume Glamour Ultra Curl Mascara which was my only mascara repurchase this year. NARS Sin blush which I've been wearing almost non stop since the beginning of Autumn and Bourjois Cream Blush in Nude Velvet which was my Summer blush.

My most worn lip products of the year were MAC Russian Red and Plumful, Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector in Apricot Shimmer, Revlon Smoked Peach and Peach Parfait and Rimmel Kate Moss 107.  For eyeshadows I mainly stuck to the Naked 2 palette when I wanted to wear something on my eyes, my most worn shades were Tease, Snakebite and YDK. I also used my No7 Stay Perfect single eyeshadow in Innocence almost every day as it's the perfect ivory shade for when you don't want to do anything fancy with eyeshadow.

Some of my other most worn items included Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin, theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer highlighting powder, L'Oréal Gel Intenza Eyeliner in Pure Black, Shu Uemura Eyelash Curlers, Collection Clear Mascara (for brows), Revlon Rich Sable Matte Eyeshadow (for brows), Zeba Brush on Brow in Ash, Bobbi Brown Creamy Corrector in Porcelain Bisque and Estée Lauder Double Wear Concealer.
