April Monthly Favourites

Please excuse my patchy uploading schedule, I'm right in the middle of exam season and it's kicking me while I'm down. I should be finished mid- May, which only leaves me two weeks to schedule a couple of posts before I leave for Orlando. But, anyway, monthly favourites time. 

Sephora by OPI Nail Colour in 'Cover Me With Petals'

I'm in a bit of a nail slump here, my nails are naturally all chipped, peeled and grotesque. I'm so close to packing it all in and chopping them all off. Until that time, though, I have been using the  Sensationail at home gel kit to strengthen them and make them look less ugly. My favourite method, and probably not the best, is to use the clear base/top coat as normal, but add normal nail polishes on top. My nails are not as strong as a proper gel manicure, but by using acetone-free remover I can change the colours when ever I feel like it.

The Bloggers Made Me Do It! Mary Lou Manizer

The second in my 'The Bloggers Made Me Do It!' series: Mary Lou Manizer, the Queen of all highlighters. The Mary Lou Manizer is definitely a firm favourite of mine, I pick it up more than any other highlighter in my collection. It's not hard to see how important highlighters have become in a makeup routine. Recent makeup trends now revolve around 'strobing' and creating a glowy, luminous base. Highlighters are a firm forefront runner of the makeup world. When I first started getting into makeup, highlighters were really not a big thing. But now they are the must have products!

Bake With Me! Mars Bar Cake

If your following me on instagram, then you'll have seen my sneakpeak of an upcoming post on Mars Bar Cake. Well The day is finally here; today I'm showing you how to achieve that deviousness. This recipe is from my copy of 'The Primrose Bakery Book', as I actually can't bake unless following a proper recipe. This recipe is very easy and perfect to do as a family activity.

Tarte Maracuja Cheek Tint in Deep Berry

With the transition into Spring, I find that I have been reaching more and more for my liquid and cream blushes over the traditional powders. I prefer liquid and creams during Spring, as I find that their finishes create a dewier appearance. One of the staples in my collection is the Tarte Maracuja Cheek Tint in the shade Deep Berry.

Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in 'Edition'

I like liquid lipsticks. The idea of applying it once and not having to really ever hour is my kind of idea. I'm totally lazy like that. I don't have to worry that it's becoming too faded or patchy, and at most I will only have to reapply after a heavy meal. When I see the brand 'Hourglass' I think high-end, luxury products; it's sone of the brand that I fell everyone needs to try once. I picked up an Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick and an Ambient Lighting Powder as my first 'dip. into the brand.

New SS16 Trends at #FashionLive!

On Saturday, I had the honour of attending the Fashion Live! event at my local shopping centre as a blogger. This was my first event as a blogger, and I have to say: what an experience! At the event there was both fashion masterclasses and beauty demonstrations. I was only able to attend of a short time, due to a prior engagement, but I was so sad to leave.
