My Everyday Make Up | April

April is the month where things really start to feel warmer and where it actually looks like spring. Days are longer and lighter and the sun isn't that rare a thing to see. With it starting to get a bit warmer and lighter I thought I show what my everyday make up is starting to look like.

I always like to start with a good base though (not on the picture) at the moment I've been using the Amie Morning Dew moisturiser to start off with and it gives a really nice matte finish (despite having dew in the title, I know, but it's really not dewy), then I'll go over with the Max Factor Face-Finity All Day Primer, to keep to make up on all day so it doesn't go patchy or rub off. 

Throughout winter I'd been using the Mac Studio Face and Body foundation but that's such a heavy foundation so I thought I'd switch to something a bit lighter, the Bourjois Healthy Mix in the shade Light Vanilla. This foundation actually smells really nice and the shade is such a good match, however I do have my eyes on the Estée Lauder foundation at the moment, but we'll have to wait until next payday. I've been setting my foundation with the Bourjois Healthy Mix powder (not on the picture). In the shade Vanilla as well.

Also been using the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer to highlight under my eyes and get rid of any bags, (college does that to a person), but also to hide any blemeshis and discolourations.

To contour I've been using the Bourjois Highlighter + Universal Tan, obviously I've just been loving Bourjois this month and I didn't even realise! This is such a good and quick way to mark out those cheek bones for those of you like me who has a 'moon head', although my friend has just bought me the Anastatia Contour Kit, so I'm really excited to try that when I get hold of it but currently she is still in New York. With that I've also been using poise tint just to give my cheeks a little bit of colour, I'm not very big on blush shades, but I do love this and I love that benifit do minature versions of their products so you can try them before spending so much on a product you might not even like.

I'm a really big fan of the simple cat flick eye liner look as I wrote in a previous post so I didn't include any eyeliner but what I have been loving is the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, it really does make your lashes look false I always get asked if I'm wearing fake eyelashes if I wear it, at first I wasn't so keen but now I really love it and would 100% reccommend.

And last the lips, I've really been loving the Nars Audasious Lipstick in Raquel (also in a previous post), I just feel like it's a really nice spring-y shade and works with any outfit or occasion, if I've been feeling lazy though I'll just put the Naked Lipgloss in the shade Sesso which I got in my Naked On The Run Pallette.

What make up bits have you been loving, let me know,
