January Favourites

Reality check: We are one month into 2016. 
How crazy is that?

As per usual, I'm right back into my monthly favourites posts and videos, because who doesn't like a little routine? Here are some of the products I have been loving over Christmas and the New Year!

The Best Moisturisers for Oily Skin

My skin is actually the reason I became so interested in beauty. I was forever frustrated with my terribly oily skin and sought to find the solution to the problems I faced. So, 15 year-old me entered the world of beauty- perhaps getting a little distracted by glittery eyeshadows along the way- but nevertheless, I continued my search to find something that worked for my skin type.

Fast forward 6 years later and I just might have finally fulfilled little Anjelique's hopes and dreams with my newest discoveries. Say goodbye to oily skin and 'hello' to a moisturised yet matte complexion.

My Makeup Geek Collection + Swatches

You may have read my post last week when I harped on about my love for my new Makeup Geek eyeshadows. Well, I decided that I just wanted to show off all of my new eyeshadows and include some swatches for you to have a peek at too. I have been researching Makeup Geek eyeshadows for the last eight months (!!) and I watched quite a few videos and read a lot of blog posts similar to this one, so I know how much of a help they can be when deciding on which products and colours to pick.

Onto the swatching!

MAC Mehr | #LOTD

Over the past year, I have become a bit 'crazy in love' with nude lipsticks. I've had moments with each of my coveted pinky nude favourites but the most recent addition to my collection has me infatuated with it's plum/pink hue. 

A matte lipstick, which I first noticed worn by Lily Pebbles, (a favourite blogger of mine) which I knew I had to own. Straight onto my wishlist it went until I went out and purchased it as a Christmas present to myself. What can I say, I do like to indulge in my makeup addiction from time to time!

Meet Mehr.

Makeup Geek 'Havoc' Duochrome Tutorial

If you haven't been living under a rock for the last few years, I'm sure you would have heard the words 'Makeup Geek' whispered amongst beauty bloggers and vloggers everywhere. Well known for their buttery, pigmented eyeshadows that claim to be 'better than MAC', I have been itching to try out these affordable eyeshadow pans which come in an assortment of colours and finishes.

Let's just say I have the best brother in the world, because after some hinting (and by hinting I mean sending a list of every shade I wanted along with a link to the website where he could purchase them) I received some of these eyeshadow pans for Christmas! Since then, I may have made another order but I just can't help it, these eyeshadows are just that good, especially for the price!

I have been playing around with some of the pressed duochrome pigments recently and I love the effect it has on the eye- it's just so mesmerising. The two which feature in my tutorial today are 'Havoc', a brown based eyeshadow with aquamarine and green glittery pigments and 'Steampunk' which is a black based shadow with blue and brown reflective pigments. You just have to witness these colours for yourself- they are insanely hypnotising!

Hello 2016!

As per usual, I'm late to jump on the bandwagon again! I have been enjoying my little break from blogging and vlogging (maybe a little too much) and have been caught up with spending quality time with my family and friends, but I'm back now and ready to get right back into the swing of things.

I thought I would kick off my first post of the year with something a little more traditional and share with you some of my aspirations for the upcoming year. I'm not usually one to set New Year's Resolutions because frankly I think it just sets you up for failure as you put yourself under a lot of pressure to change aspects about your life so quickly.

Here are 5 of the things that I am aspiring to achieve during 2016... Let's see where the year takes us!
