Welcome back to another blog post!

I was inspired by Glossier to do a blog post all about enhancing your natural beauty and highlighting, instead of hiding your face. 

I thought this was such an important message, because we should feel just as confident barefaced as we are when we are wearing a full face of makeup. So many people hide behind foundations, mascaras and lipsticks and I think that although makeup is something that is fun to do, it shouldn't be about hiding our face, it should instead be about enhancing our face. 

I decided to come up with my essentials that help me feel confident in my skin, and help me highlight my natural beauty. 

Water
I cannot stress how important water is for our skin, and not only our skin, our whole body. Water keeps your face looking fresh and healthy and can definitely help to maintain a more balanced skin type (less oily but also less dry). 

A Good Shower Gel
There is nothing better than using a good quality, nice smelling shower gel. It not only makes my skin feel amazing, but it also just makes me feel so fresh and 'ready' for the day. I absolutely love this Strawberry Shower Gel from The Body Shop. 

Face Mask
Hands down my absolute favourite face mask is the Lush Cosmetics Mask of Magnaminty. This mask is so refreshing, when putting it on it instantly makes your face seem so much more awake. I also love how good it is at calming breakouts and reducing redness. If you haven't tried this product do yourself a favour and go to your nearest Lush and get some!

Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan Mousse
To be honest I haven't tried many self tanners, but why should I when I have found the perfect one? This was sent to me by Cocoa Brown ages ago and I absolutely love it! It is so easy and non-messy to apply. It says it lasts for 7 days and it certainly does!

Highlighter
I feel like no makeup is ever complete without a good highlighter, I have tried a few but nothing ever compares to my Stila Eyeshadow in Kitten. It is beautiful and is so pigmented. 

Body Lotion
Body/face lotion makes me feel so lovely, it also is so good for you as well! This body lotion I got a while ago for my birthday and it is one of the best ones I have ever used.

Tinted Moisturiser
This NARS tinted moisturiser is simply amazing. It is very sheer, but adds so much glow to your skin I feel radiant when I wear it. If you are after something moisturising, dewy and sheer, this is for you.

If you haven't already you can have a look at Glossier's product page for some more products that enhance you.
It is so important to look after your body, and I truly hope this post has given you some ideas on how to enhance YOU.
