Each month, to make sure I keep these ‘monthly favourites’ blogs fresh and exciting for you all, I like to try out as many new products as I can (if my bank balance allows me).
April has certainly been a month of trying lots of new products, so, as we are now in the full swing of spring I thought I would share with you all my top picks from the past month…
Makeup Look of the Month-
My favourite makeup look from April has to be from makeup legend and my personal makeup idol, Jeffree Star’s most recent ASMR video. Firstly, I know a lot of people don’t like Jeffree, but haters gonna hate. Personally, though, I adore him! I love how honest he is and how he quite simply doesn’t care what people think of him. He’s also so talented, and has some really amazing makeup products.
What caught my attention most about this makeup look was his flawless highlight which as Jeffree would say is “BLINDING”.
Makeup Product of the Month-
You all know I am terrible at making decisions when it comes to my favourite products so yet again I have two makeup products that I have been using most days throughout April and have made it onto my favourites list.
The first being the INC.redible ‘You Glow Girl’ highlighters in the shades ‘Showglow’ and ‘Cosmic Blur’. This month, just like most months actually, I’ve been loving a natural makeup look with an added glow and these products have been the perfect go-to, to create this look.
Since I’ve been going for a more natural makeup look, cream products are essential which is why I’ve been using the Tom Ford Cream Cheek Colour in a beautiful bronze shade called ‘Piano Sole’. I adore this product, and before this month I honestly don’t know why I stopped using it! It’s super creamy and easy to blend, and adds a stunning glow to your cheekbones – perfect for summer.
Fragrance of the Month-
For fragrances, this month has been a month of returning to old favourites. I have been using and loving my Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom and Honey Cologne. This is certainly not a new favourite of mine, I’ve loved this perfume for years and probably gone through about four bottles. It’s such a fresh and fruity scent which makes it perfect for the warmer months!
Lifestyle Product of the Month-
This month, I decided I was going to make more of a conscious effort to cut down on the amount of plastic I use and so decided to buy one of the BKR Glass Water Bottles and I LOVE it! Firstly, I love the colour. It’s so girly and cute and secondly, I find it so much easier to use than constantly buying new plastic bottles. And, although somewhat on the pricey side, I’ve found it to definitely be worth the price tag.
That’s all for my April favourites, and I can definitely see these products becoming mainstays in my spring and summer essentials.
