2015 Beauty Edit.

It is nearly end of the year and tomorrow is officially 2016 and I know there is no other better way to put forth all those gorgeous beauty goodies into a beauty edit that I have been embracing all throughout the year. Besides, 2015 has been a remarkable year for me when it is related to beauty routine as I have been experimenting with various range of beauty products and finally, I’m selecting couple of them to showcase in front of you and hence, let’s see what are the cult beauty  favourites that I have been celebrating in my beauty regime all year long.

Skincare:

Obviously, skincare is one of those foremost beauty essentials that I have been very picky and splurging on as I’m aware that spending each penny onto skincare is an absolute must as it is going to serve as a second skin all day long. So, to start with, I would say that OZ Naturals HA Moisturising Serum is one of the best found in 2015 as I have been using it every day in my regular skincare routine and this serum is one of the beauty secrets to keep my skin supple and moist all day long. Then, Olay Essentials  Complete Care Day Cream is another great product that I can’t skip as it keeps my face hydrated and moisturised all throughout the day. Next, my winter skin saviour is none-other-than, Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant as this wonder cream can instantly transforms my dry winter skin to super soft tender skin. Next, while moving onto hands, another intense moisturising cream that can withstand winter chill weather conditions is Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Hand Treatment. Lastly, I absolutely adore my lip protectant as it assists me more than a lip balm which I’m proud enough to name it as Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick SPF 15 and also, the added factor of SPF is much needed for all types of weather norms including rain, hot or cold.

Body Butters:

Firstly, I love body butters as they leave my skin silky satin soft and two of my heart-warming favourites are Soap&Glory The Righteous Butter and Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula With Vitamin E.

Haircare:

Haircare is a must-have beauty essential that any beauty lover needs and I always head onto Kerastraight Rescue Creme when my hair needs a bit of TLC as it recovers my dry hair immediately and replenishes my hair back to normal and the other interesting hair product that I use is Matrix Biolage Voluma Therapie Full Lift Volumnising Conditioner as this product gives a deep conditioning statement to my hair and it also lifts my hair with a fluffy volumnising effect.

Nails:

Ciate London is definitely a newly found nail product of the year and moreover, I’m a great fan of Olivia Palermo and I’ve been completely adorning my nails with Ciate London Cha Cha Cha for the whole of summer months.

Makeup:

As a beauty addict,  we all know mascara has the shortest lifespan among all other beauty staples and that’s why I’ve been swapping mascara for every 4 months and three of the best that I want to mention here are Burberry Mascara In Midnight Black, Eyeko London Black Magic Mascara and Lancome Hypnose Mascara Volume. Next, the nude chic lipstick that I’ve been wearing it for millions of times is the mighty creamy lipstick, Lancome L’absolu Rouge Rose Nu. Well, when it comes to eyeshadow, I always get inspiration from the Parisian look and that’s why I mostly opted for two divine products that includes Lancome eyeshadow in the shade robin blue and MAC Fard A Paupieres. Lastly, the recent amazing innovation of Dior that has taken beauty to next level is Dior Addict Fluid Shadow in which case it can be applied either as an eyeshadow or as an eyeliner.

Perfume:

Besides all, I love perfumes and they are my all-time beauty assets that I can’t deny at all and I always prefer to have a range of perfumes lying on my dressing table and some of the key aromatherapy cult beauties are:
