The Beauty Analyst: April 2017 Favourites

Hello beauts! I can’t believe April is nearly over.
Easter has been and gone, along with the lovely bank holiday weekend and the sun has officially been shining pretty much all month. This month I’ve had lots of favourites so I thought i’d pop them all down in a blog post for you to read…

April 2017 Favourites-3

Beauty Favourites…
April has been such a changing month for beauty. Spring has arrived and so has spring and summer make up looks. I recently did a spring make up look post which so many of your read and enjoyed – read HERE if you haven’t seen it! I am currently loving natural skin, and glowing make up looks, and this months beauty favourites definitely embrace that!

I have to start with the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette. Since I got it for my birthday last month I have used it pretty much every day and throughout the whole of April. You can create so many beautiful looks with it and its so perfect for this season.

My favourite and most worn shades this month have been ‘trick’, ‘mugshot’ and ‘buzz’. These are all shimmer shades and last ALL DAY!

My second April 2017 beauty favourite is the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Travel size tube! Over the bank holiday myself and my boyfriend went to a wedding – it was so beautiful! For this wedding I did quite a glam make up look so needed something great to remove all my makeup and replenish my skin. This Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish tube is the perfect size to take away when travelling, and you get so much use from it. It removed all my make up perfectly and really helped my skin hydrate itself!

My third April 2017 beauty favourite has been the Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick in ‘Pillow Talk’. I also got this lipstick for my birthday and I love it so much. I have worn it pretty much everyday this month. Its so glam and natural on the lips. I love a matte finish too. Have you got any CT lipsticks? What is your favourite shade? I really want to try some of the brighter shades of her lipsticks as they look beautiful.

Fragrance Favourite…
I have never featured a fragrance in a blog post before but this one has to be mentioned! The Marc Jacobs ‘Honey’ perfume is such a pretty scent. The scent is sweet and musky and really lovely for a young woman. I love the bottle – its so bee like! I have never tried any marc jacobs perfumes but now I want to try more as this one is lovely! – any recommendations?

Film/Food Favourites…

This month my boyfriends mum let me borrow her ‘Bridget Jones Baby’ DVD. This film is one of my favourites! I love it so much. I can relate to Bridget on so many levels haha! I think there is nothing more relaxing that sitting and watching a girly film. I love to de-stress and not think about real life!

I sat and watched this on my own one Friday night and demolished my Aldi milk chocolate bunny that I got for Easter!

    Bridget Jones Baby was so good, it’s an amazing feel-good film you can watch over and over. You can’t beat Lindt bunnies!
