Happy New Year! 2021 has just flown by so quickly. Once again, it was a year which was far from normal; it definitely had its ups and downs. I’m trying to accept that the virus won’t disappear for a while, and I’ll also try to get the best out of life despite of that. But on a happier note, I’ve had a lovely Christmas and Christmas holiday, and I’m excited to spend the lasts day of the year with my nearest family and my boyfriend. So let’s say goodbye to 2021 with some December favourites.
Red wool coat (H&M): This red wool coat has been my go-to outerwear throughout December. It’s just so festive and a perfect pop of colour in these dark months. I’ll definitely continue to wear it in the new year.
I Heart Revolution x Elf collection primer: As you might have noticed in my make-up posts in December, this primer has probably been my most used one. It gives the skin this beautiful, subtle golden glow, which has been perfect for all my Christmassy make-up looks.
Rimmel The Multi-Tasker concealer (shade: 020 Fair): In late November I did a first impressions post on this concealer, and my first impressions were really good. I’ve continued to use it, and I enjoy it even more now. I still don’t think that it’ll beat my L’Oréal Infaillible concealer, but it’s almost as good, and it’s nice to have some great concealer options to chose from.
BH Cosmetics Miss Claus The Lit List palette: In my 5 favourites from December last year, I featured the BH Cosmetics Naughty palette, which was from the 2020 holiday collection from BH Cosmetics. That palette has continued to be a favourite of mine, so I was super excited to try the big 2021 holiday palette from BH Cosmetics to see if it would be just as good as the Naughty palette. I can reveal that it is just as good. It’s the same great quality, and I love the colour story as well. This is also the palette I brought with me on my Christmas holiday, because it’s perfect for both Christmas and New Year’s looks.
Wavy hair: It’s been a long time since I last featured a hair style/do in a 5 favourites post, but as you might have noticed, I’ve been obsessed with wavy hair in December. I initially began to plait my hair at night after I washed it, because I hate blow drying my hair and I don’t want weird folds in my hair from my pillow. I then sleep with my hair in the plait and take it out the next morning, and my hair looks nice and wavy, which is a nice change since my hair is as straight as it comes. I don’t know if I’ll continue to do this on a regular basis, but definitely every once in a while.
