So, another month almost over. I can’t believe it! For me, April is the heart of spring. The flowers are blooming and the leaves are turning green again. Spring is also one of my favourite seasons for makeup because it’s all about fresh, dewy skin. You can definitely feel some spring time vibes from my favourites this month.
KYLIE COSMETICS GLOSS ‘LITERALLY’
I haven’t quite got into the bright lip colours for the season just yet. Instead, I’m sticking with the nude lips for now. This gloss is so perfect for everyday wear. It doesn’t make your lips feel sticky at all and the colour is a lovely warm peachy tone.
THE BALM MARY-LOU MANIZER
Dewy skin is my favourite look at the minute, to achieve that I have been reaching for my beloved Mary-Lou Manizer. This has been a favourite of mine ever since trying it out at the beginning of the month, I honestly can’t get enough of it. This product brings so much light to the face without adding chunky glitter and is perfect for any skin tone.
ESTEE LAUDER DOUBLE WEAR FOUNDATION
If you follow my Instagram, you’ll know that I finally picked up a bottle of the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, and it’s all i’ve been using lately. This has been the perfect foundation to even out my skin tone without being too heavy or cakey. I have never found a foundation that is the exact colour for me and it’s hard to find one that is a matte finish, but not so matte it dries out my skin. I have found that this is the perfect combination and I can’t see myself switching to anything different anytime soon!
SLEEK MAKEUP CREAM CONTOUR KIT
I bought this contour kit in the shade dark (honestly, because they didn’t have the medium in stock and I was SO desperate to try it). The colours are really easy to blend with a smooth and creamy consistency, perfect to sculpt, enhance and define your features. I have never really tried to contour with cream products and it’s a bit harder to get the hang of than powder products but it really isn’t as hard as you may think. This has become a part in my daily makeup routine and I’m loving it!
LA GIRL PRO CONCEAL HD CONCEALER
After seeing everyone rave about this product, I just had to see what the hype was about. The formula of this concealer is very lightweight, possibly the most lightweight formula I have ever tried in a concealer. I’m always looking for something to cover these ghastly under eye circles and this does just the job! Amazing dupe for MAC Pro Longwear, just without the high price tag!
KIKO WATER EYESHADOW ‘208’
This is technically an eyeshadow that can be used wet or dry, but most people know of its secret power…It can be used as a beautiful golden highlighter too! If you know me, you’ll know I have a huge highlighter obsession, so 208 fits in quite nicely with my little (or not so little) collection. This gives a beautiful champagne glow, it blends out nicely and doesn’t add any chunky glitter to my cheekbones.
