Best In Beauty 2013: the Fluff and Fripperies Edit!

Last year was a good one for makeup – I tried, swatched, bought and was given literally hundreds of products but, when it came to identifying my absolute favourites, I found it surprisingly easy.  They were the ones I reached for on a weekly or even daily basis, the ones I’ve hit pan on and the ones I’ve repurchased, often multiple times or in ALL of the colours! Read on to see what made my Best In Beauty list, and check out the video to find out why!
