April Favorites 2018

Hello everyone! April has finally come to an end, which means it’s time to take a  look back at all of the products I was absolutely loving throughout the month.

Let’s jump right in, shall we?

Also, I’d just like to take a minute to say that I am absolutely not a makeup or beauty guru. I just like doing my makeup! Also, all of the products will be linked at the end of this article.

I always start my makeup routine with a moisturizer since I have combo (but mostly dry skin) and this product is my go-to. It sinks into my skin beautifully and makes my skin feel silky smooth!

After I moisturize, I grab this all-in-one color correcting gel serum primer to help with my redness. This also helps me look more energized and brightens up my skin! This is another go-to product so really I wouldn’t consider it my favorite correcter just this month…more like every month. But this is my first post like this so I thought I’d tell you guys!

AKA the holy grail! This foundation is better than any foundation I have ever tried (so far). It hides all of my imperfections, doesn’t look cakey at all, and has such a flawless finish. Plus, it’s super affordable! If you’re wondering, I use shade 300, which is “for medium to tan skin with neutral undertones.” Oh, and this lasts all day!

For my brows, I use this universal eyebrow pencil. I first discovered this product in a Boxycharm box and was a little skeptical since my brows are naturally super dark, but it actually looks great! It’s easy to use and fills my brows in nicely. I love this product!

This April, I really started getting into using a brow gel to keep my brows set and tamed throughout the day. I didn’t know where to start so I purchased an affordable NYX product at Ulta, and it works pretty well! The color I use is Espresso. If you have a favorite brow gel, let me know about it so I can try it out, please! 😊

I have a pretty large collection of blushes, but something about this MAC blush keeps me coming back for more! The color I use is Plum Foolery, and it looks very natural on my skin tone. It’s also very subtle, which is amazing because I hate when blush looks like it’s caked on!

So I also have a lot of eyeshadow palettes in my collection, and this was actually the first eyeshadow palette I ever bought! I use it pretty much every day, and I use the same color combo too, which is the bottom row. 😍 Aren’t the colors perfect for spring?!

Untitled design (5)Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick ($20.00)

Lately, I’ve been OBSESSED with these two liquid lipsticks. The brown color is called Ashton, and the pink one is called Allison. They are so easy to apply, stay on all day, and dry perfectly matte! They also aren’t streaky at all. Plus, they go with any makeup look!

I’ve been testing out a few different setting sprays lately and I think I can safely say this was my favorite in the month of April. It smells sweet but not in a strong way, and it does actually help my makeup stay on all day. I would really appreciate it if you guys told me some sprays that you love so I can try them out as well!

D35397119006500-largePrimark Exfoliating Facial Wipes ($2.00)

I found these at the Primark in the King of Prussia mall in Pennsylvania. I stock up on these everytime I’m there because they actually work for me! Despite them saying “exfoliating,” they’re pretty gentle on my face and haven’t broken me out at all.

That’s it for my April favorites, everyone! I didn’t want this post to be too long. Maybe for my May favorites I’ll make a video? 🤷🏻 Let me know if I should do that. Thank you so much for reading!
