April Favourites.

I almost missed the boat on my favourites this month. I had realised it was late April but I totally hadn't taken in just how late it was.

This month I've mostly been enjoying light, highlighted skin with neutral contoured eyes and a bright spring lip.


Alpha H - Liquid Gold*
I've been using this periodically the last 6 or so weeks. I use it after cleansing and as the bottle suggests, apply it every other night without moisturiser for a more intensive treatment.
I'll do a more in depth review on this soon but my skin seems less oily but also less dry. It helps your skin produce more hyaluronic acid which keeps your skin super moisturised. My skin seems less angry since using this so it's become a bit of a staple of late.

I swap and change between lip balms. Purely because after a while I don't find them as effective as when I first started using them. This is a lovely light balm that glides on to the lips and locks in moisture without leaving behind a heavy, greasy feeling.

I love lip tars and Queen is one of my favourites as I have nothing like it in my collection. It's so damn hard to photograph though. It's a bright neon coral with  a hint of pink and the perfect colour for brighter days.

I've never really got into the habit of highlighting on daily basis. But since the sun has decided to make regular appearances lately, I've opted for matte but glowy skin as it looks a little more natural.
This month I've been switching between High Beam and M.A.C Lustre Drops. Both are perfect dotted under the brow, along the cheekbones and on the cupids bow, to really give that glowy look. 

I've talked about these numerous times on the blog so I won't repeat myself but these little tubes of hand cream are amazing. I've kept this one by my bedside for night time moisturising so I can keep my hands and nails in tip top condition.

I can't remember the last time I used a powder blush. I've been using this every time I wear makeup lately. It's the only cream blush I have but it's perfect.
Sob is a cool, candy pink with a dewy finish so it's perfect for teaming with super highlighted cheekbones.
I've just noticed this is no longer on the site, which is a real shame as I love this colour. It's the perfect blue toned pink for pale skin.

Bed Head - Candy Fixations - Sugar Shock
I couldn't get this to work for me when I first go it but lately I've found a way of using it to my advantage.
This spray gives a lot of body so I spray it on the top lengths of my hair (avoiding the main bit of my fringe) and blow dry. It helps give my hair volume and stop it being so flat. 

Urban Decay - Naked Palette
The original Naked palette is always a favourite of mine but it's all I seem to be using lately. Whether it's for a barely there eye, something nude with a hint of bright colour or a full out smokey eye. It has the perfect colour selection to help you with any eye look.
