Monthly Favourites | March 2014

I can't believe that April is here already and I am a week away from being another year older, where has being 22 gone?! I didn't really buy much make up in March so my favourites are made up of slow burners that I've needed to use for a while for me to fall in love with them and a rediscovered love. I've been a really rubbish blogger recently so I'm making a new month resolution to up my game and start posting a bit more so I suppose I'm just going to have to buy some new bits so I don't run out of thing to post about...

Stop the press, I think I may have found my holy grail tan! This stuff is perfection, from the delicious sweet smell to the natural sunkissed colour, I don't have one complaint. Initially the 'dark lotion' made me a bit nervous but don't let it put you off because you get as much colour as you want depending on how much you apply, I started lightly and it turned me a lovely bronzed colour and then I got braver and layered it up for a deeper olive tan (I'd been watching the Kardashians and a light tan just wouldn't do!) I've not been battling with streakiness and it fades seamlessly although it's a bit pricier than I'd like the bottle is huge and should last a good while!

I bought Candy Yum Yum about a year ago now after months of waiting for it to become permanent and not being able to live without it in my life and then when I got it I wore it once and didn't touch it again until the past month or so when it has definitely got my full and undivided attention! This is the perfect in your face, neon Barbie pink for your lips and it's matte which makes me like it even more! I love wearing this with simple eye make up and it seems to really brighten up my whole face.

This has been my skin savior! For the first time in years I've really been suffering with breakouts around my chin and even when the offending blemish was long gone I was left with a scab or a scar because of my notorious picking ways and since I've been using this a couple of times a week I haven't had one breakout and the marks have completely disappeared.  My skin has honestly never looked so good after a really bad skin year so far so there's no way I'm going to be cutting this out of my routine any time soon.

I've heard so many amazing things about Hollow and bought this as a contouring product imparticular. This is the perfect shade for pale skin, it's a really natural colour but makes such a difference at the same time. It goes on smoothly and blends perfectly - it's all I've been using to contour recently and I can't see that changing!

This is just screaming spring to me, it's a beautiful duck egg blue which I find that sometimes shades like this can be a bit hit or miss and come across more white and stark than they are but this is really, really nice and the perfect amount of blue - there's not a hint of tip ex fingers in sight!
