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.

My Top 3 Essential Sunglasses


To me sunglasses are like shoes and handbags; they're just as essential, and I tend to have two to three great basics that go with everything. My absolute favorite for all seasons is a pair of tortoise shell sunglasses with a slight cat-eye frame. They go with absolutely anything, whether formal or casual, neutral or brightly-colored. A vintage-inspired black cat eye and a pair of over-sized aviators are my other two essential sunglasses.


If you want to invest in a quality pair of sunglasses, I cannot recommend the tortoise shell sunglasses enough. Like I said above, they're perfect for all seasons; I love to wear mine in the summer with my boho-chic outfits, and in the fall and winter, they take on a much more sophisticated look with a suit or a trench. Find a pair that has some black or at least dark brown in the print, so you can pair it with both brown or black and any number of neutrals in between. A pair with classic wayfarer frames or a slight cat eye like the ones pictured above are my favorite.

I purchased a pair of black cat eye sunglasses for a photo shoot a few summers ago, and they have become a staple of mine. Extreme cat eye sunglasses are great if you're really going for that vintage-inspired look. Though I love a pair that is a bit more subtle; they go so well with my black maxi dresses during summer, and they also look so chic with a little black dress during fall and winter.


Over-sized aviators are my new favorites when it comes to sunglasses, particularly a pair with gold-tone frames and brown gradient lenses. Just like the tortoise shell frames, they go so well with both casual or dressy-casual looks.

What kind of shades do you always have in your wardrobe?

  1. I have several, but I only really wear the one. They've got a slight curve to them.
