Makeup-wise it seems to have been the month for powders. A new bronzer made it's way into my makeup bag as did an old favourite; Hourglass' Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light. The Topshop Bronzer in Sand Castle is one I talked about here and have been loving all month. Now that my skin has a slight hint of summer colour this slightly darker bronzer is lovely for sweeping just under the cheekbones and up onto the temple. I've been embracing a solely bronzer cheek recently sans blush and have been loving the more natural result. Getting back into using my Hourglass powder has left me wondering why I ever stopped. It literally is like an Instagram filter in real life, blurring imperfections and giving that glowing but not oily appearance. It's love.
Another old flame that's been rekindled is my love for Maybelline's Colour Tattoo in On and On Bronze. I sung praises of this stuff from the rooftop for such a long time and it's finally back in my makeup bag. With just a dab of your finger it looks like you've spent ages blending out different shades in the crease and like you actually know what you're doing (which I very rarely do...). Perfect for makeup beginners or experts in a rush.
Two skincare favourites in one month is a bit of a rarity for me, but something my skin is definitely enjoying. First up Sanctuary Spa's 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask. I've spoken about this a heap this month and you can read all the details here. If you suffer from dry skin and breakouts, check this out pronto. Finishing off with the spendiest of the month; Estée Lauder's Advanced Night Repair. I picked this up just after Christmas and have been using it daily ever since. Both morning and night I massage in a little post toning and it has improved the texture of my skin immensely. I don't think I've ever seen such a big change in the overall appearance of my skin from a skincare product before. My complexion seems so much more plump and radiant. Spots don't appear as angry and seem to heal faster. A pricey investment but one I think is worth it.
