April 2017 Beauty favourites

Im such a huge fan when it comes to watching monthly favourites on you tube. I can totally binge watch my favourite you tubers for hours and not get bored!! Just grab a snack and a cup of tea, then your good to go!! I’ve always wanted to talk about products i use month to month.  In April of this year we went to the south of ITALY! OMG it was such a blast, we had so much fun and didn’t want to come home. Whilst we were there the weather was amazing and i loved creating bronze make up looks to give me a glowing summery look 🙂 

A eyeshadow palette i used so much was the charlotte tilbury THE GOLDEN GODDESS PALETTE 🙂 It is so stunning, by far one of my favourite quads from her. These palettes are designed to take you from desk to dusk to disco and they retail for £39.  The pop shade is gorgeous, you can apply this with your finger or a synthetic shader brush. I like to add some fix plus to my brush as well for that little extra POP 🙂

OF COURSE  you can always add something a bit extra with the eyeshadow look and to create a much more intense look on the eyelids i have been loving the stila magnificient metals glitter and glow eyeshadow. My favourite whilst we were away was the shade kitten karma, its such a lovely shade and stila are know for this shade. You can pick them up from the Stila website and they retail for £23. You can also pick them up from beauty bay and cult beauty. They contain pearl and are water based for an effortless look. Kitten karma is described as a copper toned champayne with flecks of silver 🙂 I definitely recommend these eyeshadows, you won’t regret it, trust me!!

Of course with this look you need to have a matching lip colour. I have been loving soft, neutral peach looks recently. Whilst we visited Rome i picked up some goodies from the Kiko Milano store. I got my hands on a more colour lipstick in the shade 02.  The name of this on the Kiko website is peaceful coral. These lipsticks retail for £10.90 and are described as bright, coloured lipsticks with a melon extract. The CORAL shade was stunning, it matched my eye look, my clothes, my TAN and of course the WEATHER!! 

Description is from the Kiko website 

More colour lipstick has a smooth texture and covers the lips in a sheen of pure colour with long-lasting hold. The colour pay off is uniform, the product clings to the lips and the finish is radiant. The formula awakes the senses, making application a pleasant experience and leaving the lips feeling wonderful.

With its pearl white packaging, the lipstick looks dazzling and elegant. The designer Ross Lovegrove created the elongated, ergonomic tube. The raised surface provides a new tactile and visual experience that makes it uniquely sophisticated and handy at the same times. The tube snaps open and closes with ease due to the magnetic closure that also protects the lipstick.

TO FINISH off the make up look you have to have a blinding highlight right especially for a glowing look.  I decided to take away the anastasia beverly hills nicole guerriero collaboration. This palette is frikkin’ STUNNING I kid you not!! If you do not own this you need to, i didn’t use any other highlighter, this is too pretty to put to one side. Nicole Guerriero is amazing and i am subscribed to her on you tube. If you do not know who Nicole is just click here which will take you to her channel!! Nicole collaborated with ABH on a new highlighting palette. The ABH palettes usually contain four shades however this one contains six shades. It retails for £39 and you can pick it up from the UK ABH site. Just click the banner below 🙂 

I absolutely love this palette and in the image below you can see the shades. They are absolutely stunning (how many times have i said stunning in this post lol) 

I have also swatched this palette for you so you can see the pigmentation just from one swipe. The shades i have used the most so far are glo getter and 143. 143 means “i love you”(the amount of letters lol) as Nicole always signed her videos with 143 at the end of the video. All of the shades are beautiful and they are intense too, such fab highlighters. 


       From left to right the shades are kitty kat, forever young, daydream, forever lit, glo getter and 143

Seeing as we are almost coming into summer thought i would add a feel good track to get us looking forward to holidays/vacations etc
