April Favourites!

I can't believe April has already come to an end however as always I have collected a whole lot of products to share with you as I went on a recent shopping trip and have been trying out a few new things and I can tell you now grab a cuppa its a long one!

The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser- I bought this at the end of March and i knew instantly that it was going to be amazing, it minimises any pores on my cheeks and helps makeup to blend easily, preventing any caking on dry or oily patches. However I wouldn't say it helps keep makeup on that much longer but I rarely need this on a daily basis. 

Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer- This is probably my most recent purchase, but I had been putting it off due to the claim of anti-ageing and thought it wouldn't really be for me as I am only 16 however  due to the amazing reviews online I went for it and found this is amazing, it covers all dark circles or darker pigments and really makes the skin look and feel more awake, I also use this to brighten any areas of my face like the bridge of my nose. I even tried this on my mom and she loved it too so I think its an amazing all round product whether blurring or brightening any imperfections. 

Soap and Glory Solar Powder- I am absolutely obsessed with this, I started off not really liking it when I got it early this year, but I think it was because I was using it as more of a contour rather than bronzer however on a big fluffy brush this gives the perfect glowy tan around the face, I have already hit pan but for some reason the lighter colour has worn out first which is very strange.

Benefit High Beam- As Spring is here and summer is approaching I just had to bring out my all time favourite highlight,  I always seem to go back to this when trying any other highlight but I would definitely get the mini as its so much better for travelling and prevents waste when it dries up a bit. I have been applying this on my cheeks bones, brow bones, bridge of the nose and cupid bow then setting it with a powder highlight if I am doing a full face. I find it lasts all day and gives a wonderful natural glow, I would also advise dabbing this into the skin with your fingers as it warms the product and prevent makeup moving beneath.

Metal Eyelash Curlers- Now lets be real here your probably thinking 'metal eyelash curlers whats so special about metal' but I am telling you now if you currently use plastic ones or even none at all these are a game changer. I had the same pair of eyelash curlers since I started doing makeup properly and they just weren't cutting it (not that I want cut eyelashes ;)) so I bought these from Superdrug and my eyelashes look so much better!

Charles Worthington Volume and Texture Spray- If you have flat or finer hair I am feeling you now just go and get this like right now it is amazing like seriously this is my saviour, I use it virtually everyday adding volume at the roots to straight hair or texture throughout with curls and buns I also find it makes the style hold much better than hair spray alone. 

Imperial Leather Fruit Salad Shower Gel- I have been using this shower gel from about early April and oh my gosh I am digging this stuff, its smells so good. I usually don't like sweet smells and you can't really get much sweeter than a sweet but theres something about this I am just obsessed with especially as it has a creamy moisturising feel and its only £1 you just can't go wrong.

High Waisted Jeans- I have been living in high waisted jeans the past month especially light wash blue and have been loving the look of these with a slightly cropped top or tucking in the front of any longer top I just feel like the outfit is perfect for any day and is just super comfortable.

The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2 - I don't wan too give any spoilers so I will keep this one short, but I finally managed to watch the last film and instantly wanted to watch the whole series again as I loved it so much. The film is super gripping which I was worried it wouldn't be as part 1 is a bit boring but does give a good background for the second one. 

Mary Berry Baking Bible- Finally in the super long favourites is a recipe book, in my spare time I have been loving experimenting with new recipes and I have found this covers everything you could possibly think of but I also find some of the basic recipes work as a great starting point for creating my own random recipes which we all know I love to do from my chewy fudge cookies (link here), baking is also a great way for me to relax.

What have your favourites been this month?
