KCL 2018 Beauty Awards

Welcome to the latest beauty edit and the very first beauty awards here on the blog! I’ve tried so many wonderful beauty products this year and wanted to let you guys know which were my top must-have products of the year. I’ve picked from new and small businesses only, as I love to work with indie brands. And like most of the beauty brands I review; most of these are organic, natural, and cruelty-free.

These are the items that long after the required testing and promotion period, I find myself still using and preferring above any others. The're the products which despite a never ending stream of free PR samples, I would still spend my own money (and in some cases have) in order to get more of. And whether affordable or more costly, these are the beauty products that I truly think are worth the price. So if you’re thinking about adding more beauty or selfcare products into your 2019 routine, I highly recommend each of these brands.

The picture makes it look a bit washed out - the color is richer than this shows. But I did go for a darker shade of green than my inspiration piece:


I went with Behr Ultra in Dill Pickle. 


Here is the before shot:


I hand sanded and did two coats of paint. The paint included primer but I really should have either primed it or given it a third coat. I was worried after the first coat - it was very lime-y. But the color got much darker as it dried.


And I cleaned the brass pieces with Brasso.

 

I am clueless at styling (I'll move things around a dozen more times) but I like it. Now I just need to move the picture down (something else used to be there) and find a chair!

What do you think?
