I’ll start with my mini March beauty haul.
I use concealer to highlight and for some reason, the wands I’ve been buying don’t seem to create the effect I want – they seem to just seep into my skin?!
I discovered this palette whilst in Superdrug. One of the store assistant’s highlight WAS TO DIE FOR and she recommended this one. What’s great about it is that it’s amazing value for money – just £6.00 for eight similar shades to play with!
Revolution Strobe Highlighter
I’ve always loved Revolution’s highlighters as they seem to last forever! This strobe highlighter was just £3.00 and you can choose from three different shades. I love the white highlighter because it has a really cute emerald shimmer to it when it catches the light. No face is complete without a little glow!
PS Amplif-eyed Mascara
The brush is relatively thin and bends with the application, meaning it catches EVERY single eyelash. I’ve never really used mascara on a daily basis, but this stuff has me hooked – my eyelashes have never looked so good! Definitely recommend for the amazing price of TWO QUID. Yep, that’s right!
(Can be purchased on eBay and online beauty sites)
I was so happy when I found this product in Duty Free at Manchester’s Arndale Centre. I’ve got quite pale yet olive skin tone so I thought that the banana powder wouldn’t do much for me. I apply the powder over concealer to highlight and my GOD it’s flawless. The powder is just over £10, BUT it’s worth it as you need very little to create a killer effect!
£12.99 (I purchased for £6.99) Superdrug
blue daisy: soothes + calms
Midnight Recovery Concentrate
Full bottle: £38 Kiehl’s
The Midnight Recovery Concentrate is very oily, which I don’t mind but for some people, an oily texture is the last thing they want before going to bed. I rub the concentrate onto a cleansed face and the smell is enough to chill me out. The formula aims to soothe skin and give you a fresher looking face in the morning. I’ve certainly noticed a difference, my skin now looks a lot brighter first thing!
