New Year, New You - JN Beauty

I know buying makeup shouldn't be based on the packaging but I would be lying if I said it didn't factor into the equation. JN Beauty has some of the most stylish and expensive looking packaging I have come across for a low cost brand. All the products are have great results and the colours are all on trend and suitable for any skin tone or condition. I think I have just found my makeup crush of 2014.

The mascara is only £10 but don't let that fool you into thinking it doesn't measure up to more expensive ones. It's smudge proof and long lasting, the bristle brush is small enough to capture all the eyelashes making it brilliant for opening up you eyes.

My favourite product from this range that I tried has got to be the Sheer Glo paradise at only £14 a little goes a long way. It's a incandescent liquid that magically transforms even the most lacklustre skin into radiantly glowing glorious skin. You can use it all over your body, I really like using it on my shoulders and collarbones, its also makes your legs look longer if you blend it in down your shins. You can also mix it into your regular foundation to give your face a lift or dab it onto your cheeks as a highlighter.

Add a touch of colour with lipgloss in bad bessie £10 with added vitamin E it's long lasting and a touch of sparkle gives it a pearlescent sheen. If raspberry red is too bright for you try the dusky pink of Ice cream lipstick £11.50, it is super soft with a creamy finish so it doesn't dry out your lips. With nail vanishes for £6 and eyeshadow pallets for £20 getting a new look has never been so affordable.
