This year is literally flying by I can’t believe its April already! April is such a month for me with so many birthdays, events and of course the dreaded dissertation hand in day….slowly but surely university is coming to an end (sob). Now March included lots of experimenting with different products some old and some new and so my favourites this month are about all over the place! Here we go..
First up is the MUA Heaven & Earth Palette which I’ve been using on a daily basis, whether it be for a quick sweep when I’m in a rush or a perfect smoky eye for the evening. The variety of looks I’ve managed to make this with this bargain palette is amazing and the formulas are so pigmented, with a wonderful shade range, they really do last all day! I recently have started using the Sleek Contour Kit in Medium which I ordered off Amazon ages ago but it took weeks to arrive. Contouring is a technique I’ve always wanted to try but not had a clue where to start, but after some youtube surfing I’ve found some really helpful tutorials and given it a go! I’ve then been using the Bourjois Java Rice Powder to set my make up as it leaves such a stunning, flawless finish and the scent is absolutely divine.
I have also started experimenting with my hair and trying to style it more and just do some different things with it because at the moment I just clip it to the side or shove it in a messy bun. I have really flat hair and so products that help style and also add volume are always a plus. I received the Toni & Guy Casual Texturising Spray in a gift set for Christmas but it got shoved in the back of a draw as I had no idea how to use it! Now i’m still a massive rookie when it comes to styling but I’ve been using this to jujj up my hair and it adds the perfect amount of texture and volume to my roots, I would definitely recommend this to a newbie like me (full post coming soon). On my nails I have not stopped using the Models Own Hypergel in ‘Pink Veneer’ and ‘Lilac Sheen’, there both so gorgeous for spring, especially the lilac and I absolutely love the finish of these polishes.
This month skincare has become very important to me and I’ve been following a routine everyday based on lilypebbles skincare guide. A couple of saviour products I have been using are the Clinique All About Eyes to reduce the horrendous bags under my eyes and the Lanolips 101 Ointment to moisturise my extremely chapped lips. These two have firmly become enshrined in my daily routine! Finally is a travel size product I actually received in my Birchbox which is the Korres Citrus Body Milk. This smells so incredible and citrusy, I have been using this everyday as it makes me feel so refreshed and moisturised. A full size purchase will be happening asap as I only have the smallest amount left!
