March Favourites

It really is a blogger cliché to question how fast the months are going by, but seriously 201, d'ya fancy slowing down a bit?! How can it be April already? March was a very laid back month for me as I had annual leave which meant that I have enjoyed days out and shopping trips with friends and family. As a result of being off work, I have had a chance to buy and play around with more makeup,and my favourites are a nice mix of high street and high end...

Burberry isn't a brand I would necessarily turn to when it comes to fragrances. However, a friend of mine was wearing this and it smelt divine. As soon as she told me what it was I made an effort to try it for myself. Although it is quite a heavy being an EDP it isn't at all over powering with its floral and slightly fruity scent. With top nots of peach and freesia, these lift the base notes of amber, woody cashmere and musk. 

I got a miniature of this in a Christmas gift set and I loved it! I noticed that this rally made a difference in lifting the skin around my eyes and brightening my under eye area. I apply this morning and night, but it still lasts such a long time.

Now that Spring has sprung I have been favouring a soft and glowing look. However, due to my oily skin I have been wearing a completely matte foundation which can make me look a little flat. A quick dusting of this over the top and my skin has a lovely natural glow.

For the entirety of the month I have been wearing a deep brown smokey eye. I love dark bronze shades all year round and this is definitely my new favourite thing. This is ultra easy to wear on its own or under a powder shadow.

Dainty Doll Cream Shadow in Billion Dollar Babies
Unfortunately I couldn't find a link for this in the UK :( I have been using this taupe cream shade to add a very slight contour to my cheekbones. This has a grey undertone to it which makes it perfect for adding a shadow to the face. I like to blend this out with a touch of bronzer, and then it's hello cheekbones!

So those have been my favourites this month. I've recently bought some more makeup storage so I'm hoping this will encourage to use more products, so my April Favourites might be completely different to this month :)
