My favourites of 2012!

I am quite late in this post, as January is almost over already but I've wanted to put together a post on my favorite makeup looks that I did last year! Although I still have some that I can't believe I haven't posted yet I will just put up the ones I posted on my blog. At the end I have a few fave products of last year.

A collage of a few makeup looks I did in 2012! Sorry it's not well done I don't have photoshop XD

~March 12~
The reason why I'm starting a couple of months in is that I did do a couple before but nothing really stood out until now ;) And I did not pick a fave in every month either.

Nude & Purple Arabic Look
Neutral but dramatic at the races
 Barbie Girl

Mod Cat Eye Makeup

 Purple & Gold 
Burnt Sunset
Red Lips for MS Day
Glitzy Club makeup
Smoky Blue & Pink Lips

 So they are pretty much my faves for 2012... I tried to get it down to as few as I could but there are still heaps here! And for myself my faves out of these would have to be... the gold & purple look & the dramatic masquerade because I was super duper pleased in how they turned out :D

Fave Products of 2012
I am going to keep this part as short & sweet as possible without rambling on too much! Most of these were bought in 2012 but there were heaps of products bought before that I started loving through the year!

 Rimmel had really impressed me with their foundations, I will continue to use Wake Me Up for as long as I can! I also really like the stay matte powder, even though I like the glowy look I set my makeup lightly with this and the glow still shines through. Both products really helped me through the year!!

I bought so many nice lipsticks that I liked but nothing will compare to these 2... especially Viva Glam Nicki! wow I am in love with the formula and I really like the smell of MAC Lipsticks!
I adore these face brushes from Real Techniques.... They are so soft and can be used for multipurposes, e.g. I use the blush brush for bronzer, the contouring for blush, the precise foundation of undereye concealer etc

So hard for me to choose a couple of cheek products! MAC Lightscapade has been a daily use product for me ever since I got it, the Inglot blush is a colour to die for and Jordana blushes are highly pigmented! (this is in Coral Sandy Reef). If I had gotten NARS Laguna earlier it would be included in here!
I feel really fortunate that I had been able to slowly build my collection with a few better quality products last year, if everything wasn't so expensive over here I would definitely have quality over quantity! The inglot eyeshadows are a dream to work with, although I haven't used them as much as I'd like, and the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette has been a go to for me with neutral eye looks!
Maybelline Color Tattoo bases are a must to use under corresponding eyeshadow colours and they make it stand out so much more! (although Nyx white base does the same thing, too). I have been in love with the Maybelline Master Precise eyeliner ever since I bought it, and the I <3 Extreme volume mascara by Essence has been a daily product!
 I have been expanding my O.P.I & China Glaze collection thanks to a certain sale website, and I love the formulas! Although there are always hits & misses, both of these brands have been stand outs to me. The colours pictured here are O.P.I The Living Daylights, O.P.I Koala Berry, China Glaze Snow Globe, China Glaze Pool Party.
Although I don't talk about my perfume collection (which I have been meaning to go through for quite some time now!) I have been loving these 2 that I received as gifts last year, Jennifer Lopez Live & Calvin Klein Sheer Beauty.
