30 Day Beauty Challenge: Day 24 Favourite new beauty product & Day 25 Beauty regime

I'm so horrible these days.  I've been so swamped with work, and all my spare time is going to working on my business and I just haven't had time to share with you all the little things that I've been hauling (mainly clothes and fashion accessories).  Once I get into the groove of everything and sort out some better time management, I promise my blog will have some better direction - thus is life though, right?

How are you all.  Please feel free to leave comments about ANYTHING :) Also, for those with twitter, you can follow me @tokkiandoliver.

DAY 24 - Let's discuss my favourite new beauty product.  I'm a bit indecisive as to if this means a new beauty product that is new in general to the beauty market, or just new to me.  I'm not always one to jump on the bandwagon, and hunt down the newest things.  I do this, because I like to see what others say first.  If it's total shit then I saved some money :)  

I also haven't been really hauling beauty products like I have been.  Long story, but you know the drill, after holidays being skint, and just trying to hold onto the money that I do have because I didn't know when my next paycheck was coming.  Yep, same old boohoo "I'm broke" story. lol.  But I'm not dead...I still treat myself from time to time :) favourite new beauty product is hands down the inexpensive and amazing, Fantasy Fire by Max Factor.  This was the last polish that I purchased before my 2012 nail polish ban, and I'm happy that I bought the ones that I did.  I loved it so much, that I'm sharing a bottle with one lucky reader.  I can't believe how hard it is to find these days.  I wish that my Boots was bigger, as I bought a few and since then I haven't seen them back in stock (sad face).

DAY 25
Beauty regimes....ahhhhh, regimes, well I'll be honest ladies - I don't have a regime really.  I think I change it drastically based on weather and mood.  The only things that are consistent with me are:

1.  Cleansing using my Clarisonic MIA
2.  Using a toner 
3.  Clinique even better serum
4.  Moisturising

I repeat this at night as well.  That will never change.  I'm 32 now, and I am taking my skincare regime seriously.  Once a week I will exfoliate with a mask (currently out of this, eck, gotta buy some asap!).

As for my makeup regime, it really depends on weather and mood.  If it's rainy and gloomy, I wear bright red lipstick.  If it's sunny, I may use a coral/pinky blush or bright pink lipstick.  Most days however I love wearing nude lips, especially during the day.  So it really changes, but what doesn't change is:

1.  Using primer (face & eyes)
2.  Concealing and hiding the redness and scars
3.  Wearing foundation - I never go out without foundation...never, ever, ever :)
4.  Shape and define eyebrows

I guess I'm just very self-concious about having clear skin, so I always want a bright and even toned face when I leave the house.

OH! I also do not leave the house without nail polish.  I feel super naked when I have naked nails.  Does anyone else feel like this?

My other beauty regime is to give myself a home manicure with loads of oils.  I really enjoy doing this, and it's so very relaxing.  I just don't have anywhere near my house that's any good, so I rather save the money and do it myself.

Share with me your beauty regime secrets or a new beauty product that you think I should own.
