April Favourites

I cannot believe it is may already. This year is going way too fast, I will be a third year soon, eekkk! You may have noticed that all my photo's have been taken on my iphone, I am in desperate need of a new camera and I am hoping to get one when all my exams have finished as a treat for myself.

001. My first two favourites need no introduction to the blogging world and they are the real technique brushes. My two favourites are the buffing brush and the deluxe crease brush. I have seen a million reviews on the buffing brush aka. "the best foundation brush ever" however I have not seen many reviews on the eye brushes. I love all the eye brushes however I now cannot live without the deluxe crease brush, it is amazing. It is great for eye shadow, highlighter and concealer. I use this brush everyday with out fail.

002. My second favourite is the Barry M kohl pencil in brown. I prefer brown eye liner in the day time as black can look really heavy on my pale skin and wash me out so brown is perfect. I have worn this eyeliner everyday this month, even for going out at night. This eyeliner lasts all day without smudging however I only tend to wear it on my eye lids in the day so I don't know how well it holds up on your water line for long periods of time but I have never had a problem with it.

003. I said in my march favourites that I have never really been into blushes and I am slowly getting into them and I have read so many rave reviews about topshop make-up so I decided to pick up a blush. I picked the shade 'Head over Heels' and I think it is perfect for my pale skin. It blends really well which I love as it looks really natural and doesn't look too harsh on my skin, I will definately be on the lookout for more topshop blushes.

004. My final two favourites are 'your lips but better' lipsticks. The shades are Barry M in 150 and Revlon in Mauve it over. I have been alternating between the two all month. They are both really natural colours and are slighter darker than my lips (which are quite red). The Barry M lipstick is more moisturisng than the revlon one as it is not matte like the relvon one so I tend to wear that on days were my lips are dry. I think these lipsticks would be great for any skintone and are perfect for daytime or night time if you want a simple lip colour.

I went shopping today as a celebration for the end of all my coursework and I have collected a few things over the past month so expect a rather large haul of things coming up.
