Another month has flown by packed with shoots to test out lots of products and new makeup and skincare that I have fallen in love with and have been using non stop on myself. Its pretty much all about makeup for April favourites because I have literally have had so much to play with. So here are the favourites:
I will start with the one skincare item its definitely a firm favourite for myself and on models when I am on a shoot. I have totally fallen in love with Embryollsse Lait-Creme Concentre moisturiser. Recommended by another makeup artist from Italy its just one of those moisturisers that is super light but makes skin glow and look and feel amazing. Its my go to on set now I don’t use any other moisturisers and it makes base look so good. Sadly not available in SA so try get someone to get you some from overseas.
The Clarins BB Skin Detox Fluid is from the new glow collection and it is perfect for those of you who don’t want anything heavy on your face but want to have some coverage and even out the skin tone. Its super light and makes skin still look like skin with that gorgeous healthy glow. Its one that I like to use for every day so that my skin can breath. Love love love.
The NYX Super skinny marker is literally my go to eyeliner every weekend on days and nights out. I am definitely into the feline flick on the eyes for myself at the moment as its quick and easy but also looks really good. The marker has a thin nib that makes it easy to get all the way in to the inner corner of the eyes and also doesn’t make mess or smudge easily. A great budget buy that won’t break the bank and will make your life so much easier.
Smashbox have launched these trio blush and shimmers the L.A. Lights Blush and Highlight palettes that are coming our way this month. Each palette has a lighter and darker blush plus a shimmer shade for all your highlighting needs. Perfect for adding a flush to your complexion especially now winter is here and we need the extra pop when our skin tones are lighter. There are 3 L.A Lights palettes this one I am featuring is the Pacific Coat Pink which has been my go to the last few weeks as well culver city coral which I am also loving and and malibu berry which is great for darker skin tones.
The Gosh Double Precision mascara is new to their collection that was launched with their new brushes is another favourite of mine. With a thicker applicator on the one side to create volume and a thinner smaller applicator on the other side to get right into the root of the lashes and get into the inner corner of the eyes to create extra volume.
Last up for April favourites the Lancome Juicy shaker gives a sheer pop of colours infused with oils that will keep lips hydrated all year round. All you need to do is shake and then dab the sponge applicator onto your lips. If you didn’t catch my post then check it our here. They are in cute little bottles so easy to pop into any size bag and apply when needed.
