Pop Beauty Lid Bronzer: This is the perfect cheap warm neutral palette, unlike the Naked Pallettes this one actually suits my skin tone, flatters my eye colour and is a lot smaller and travel friendly. As far as I can remember these are only £10 which is a bargain and perfect for neutral shimmer lovers who want a nice selection of shades to create a variety of looks. These actually come in a few different colour ways but Bronzer is my favourite!

Channel Ombre D'Illusion in Emmerville: I mentioned this in last years favourites and it's still going strong in my makeup collection. I have bought a few since as after a few months it does go a little dry to use. I've been using this as a base or as a wash of colour. Simple to use, fuss free and a really beautiful peachy champagne colour. Expensive but oh so pretty!

Benefit They're Real: I was recently given this at a Benefit event but I actually LOVE it. I was going to include Avon Supershock mascara and then this came into my life and I was just… wowed? I cant even explain why I like it so much, it gives my short, stubby lashes so much definition and length with minimal effort and fuss. It's a touch on the tough side to remove but a oil based cleanser does the trick.

Laura Mercier Brown Pencil in Warm Brunette: A recent addition to my routine but something that I've had a lot of love from. I decided to stop filling my brows in with powder a few months ago as my brows have actually grown back to a decent shape at the front. I'm toying with the idea of getting them tattooed in sometime in 2013. My brows have been through a transformation this year and I might do a post on it at some point!

Pixi Lash Line Ink: This was a easy and obvious choicec for my 2012 favourites! This has been my go-to eyeliner for the majority of the year since I discovered the Pixi Brand. Long lasting, pigmented, easy to apply and ever so quick. It's just perfect and I cant sing it's praises enough, I can see me using this long into 2013 and however long going forward. The true black finish just edges it into my favourite eyeliners of all time category.
