Is it just me or is something seriously spooky going on?
I am struggling to believe that it is the first of May tomorrow?!
Yes, crazily the year has sprinted along to the most dreaded month in any students academic life.
Tomorrow I shall be sitting my first exam in the reporting of UK Politics.
Anyway back to beauty…
I can't say that I have made any terribly exciting beauty discoveries this month but I have found some little gems that I have been reaching for day in day out.
The Cleanser: I talked about the Derma V10 Cleansing Milk in [THIS POST] it is a super affordable cleanser (99p!) that removes even the most stubborn of make-up in one swipe with a cotton pad.
I think this cleanser is perfect for when you are travelling or at a festival as it doesn't require water to make it work. I like to use this before I cleanse my face with a hot cloth and a balm cleanser as it removes and dissolves the first layer of make-up quickly which in turn speeds up your entire skincare routine.
The Hair Toner: I first saw the Live Color XXL mousse toner in a magazine and I was interested to see how it worked as my naturally brunette hair tries very hard to break through my faux blonde shade. I bought the colour M002 'Champagne Blonde' which is for eliminating brassy tones from blonde. This product gets a huge thumbs up from me! [FULL REVIEW HERE]
The Bronzer: I popped home a few weeks ago and ended up having a good old root through my beauty drawers. I ended up stumbling across a very old favourite of mine, the Elizabeth Arden Bronzer. This bronzing powder is so finely milled that you only need a tiny amount on the end of your brush to become an instant bronze goddess. I talked about it a few years ago in [THIS POST].
The Blush: As you can probably tell I have become a little cheek obsessed in the month of April. I am usually one to take or leave blush as it tends to make me look a little ruddy as I already have a lot of red pigmentation within my complexion. Using a MAC 130 mini stippling brush I have been applying a tiny amount of the light pink Stargazer blusher to the apples of my cheek giving my face a lovely glow.
I talked about more Stargazer make-up products in [THIS POST]
The Face: I hate to be one of those to jump on the hype with certain products however, I simply had to when it came to this Rimmel Stay Matte powder. I am not onto my second pot and it is just the perfect product for dusting over your foundation to set it or for mattifying any shiny areas you may develop throughout the day. I love it as the powder distributes a little colour to warm up worn off make-up.
