January Favourites! - Dora

Hey Guys! So the first month of 2015 is already over. No matter what we can’t stop the time… but we can make monthly favourites! :D
So today I brought for you my favourites of the month. I’m going to show you my favourite book, series, song, nail polish, scincare and makeup of course. :D

Okay! So let’s start with the book! I really like to read, but now because of the school I don’t really have time. But for one I had time: Eye of the red tsar from Sam Eastland. This book is really interesting. There is a lot about the Romanov dynasty in it so I really loved it, because I love history as well and this book has some in it.

My Favourite series of the month was Switched at Birth. I only  recently started to watch it, but i already love it. It's nice for a friday night just too eat popcorn and relax! :D

My favourite song was the song called “Jolene”, but in two different cover one is from Miley Cyrus and the other one is from The White Stripes. I listened to this song not only in January but in December as well. :D

Skincare favourite! Before makeup I always use the Garnier micellar water. It feels really nice on the skin, it's really cheap and it is 400 ml, which is great! All-time favourite!

And the makeup favourites!  So in January I didn’t really used to put on foundation, because I didn’t really have a lot of blemishes or red patches (but if I did I used my L'oreal True Match in the color W1).But when my skin was really dry and when I didn't sleep too much, I used the Strobe Cream by MAC, and this is a miracle on the days when you feel like a dead and you even look like one. :D It makes the skin really healthy looking and it moisturizes as well. It just gives that kind of natural glow to the skin.

When I had some blemishes, I used my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair. This concealer is amazing! And actually my friend Sophie brought it for me from England. It has the perfect amount of coverage, the color is perfect for me and it stays on for a whole day. I use this concealer on any imperfections and under my eyes I love to use the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer in the color Light (01). I bought mine in Austria. It is so natural but still makes me look so much more awake.

Next one is blush! My favourite thing! :D My favourite blush in January was Mocha from MAC (which was also recommended by Sophie :D ). It has a matte finish, and it was perfect, because on my pale skin it wasn’t to overpowering, and it warmed up my skin a little bit as well, because in the winter I don’t really like to use bronzer.

On my eyes I used only a cream shadow and a flesh toned pencil. I used Maybelline’s Color Tattoo in the color pink gold on my eyelid and in my waterline I used Catrice’s nude eyeliner pencil in the color Sweet Nothing ( 160). 

My favourite mascara in this month was a Maybelline one, the One By One and I use the waterproof one. It makes my lashes really natural, but still makes them longer and separates them beautifully.

And last, but not least! Lips! Of course in the whole December and January I used lip balms in every minute, but when I wanted a nice everyday peachy-pinky color , I used the Beautifying Lip Smoother from Catrice in the color Cake Pop (030). It has a really nice sheer peachy-pink color, whit a nice solid glossy finish, it’s perfect for everyday wear.

Favourite nail color of the month is the Max Factor Glossfinity nail polish in the color burgundy crush (155). It has a beautiful deep, but still vibrant burgundy color. I think this is perfect for the fall and winter time.

So yeah this is my January favourites! I hoped you liked it!
