What's in my April make up bag?


Ah my favourite kind of post to write, I'm so excited to be introducing you to the products I've been using this month, there are a few newbies and they're absolutely amazing so here we go, it's time to show you my April make up bag...
Michael Van Clarke 3 More Inches Life Extending Haircare

Michael Van Clarke 3 More Inches Life Extending Haircare - So strictly speaking this isn't in my make up bag but because I've been travelling a lot this month, I've been using these travel sized Michael Van Clarkes. I love MVC and I have done ever since the brand contacted me about their hair growth products. Their products are amazing and I truly believe that they've got my hair back into good condition and back into hair growth mode. I need an endless supply of this in my life. You can buy it from Space NK here or FeelUnique stock loads of their products here


Liz Earle Radiant Glow Bronzer - I was kindly sent this beautiful bronzer to review and oh my gosh, it's like a dream come true. I haven't put it down all month. I sometimes find that bronzers go grey on my cheeks but this one is the perfect colour plus it's nice and glowy (I love the Kim Kardashian glow). You can use one side for more of an intense bronze or the lighter bit for a nice shimmer. I use both together, it highlights and bronzes, perfect for days when you can't be bothered to carry loads of make up in your bag, it's lovely and light weight.


Fake Bake - The Face, anti-aging self-tanning lotion - I have a full review of this ready to publish, it's worthy of its own review because it's so amazing. FakeBake was the first proper fake tan that I used and I know a lot of people who swear by it. I love having a tanned face and this gives the most amazing glowy tan, it looks even better on the second day of wear too, it shines through my make up and makes me look like I've been to the Bahamas for a few weeks. It isn't too dark, it's just right and it didn't make me break out at all. It makes me feel confident enough to wear no make up.


The Body Shop Skin Primer - I trust The Body Shop so much when it comes to beauty, all of their products are kind to your skin and that's exactly what I want. This skin primer is amazing, it minimises my pores and gives me a lovely, smooth matte finish. I love the packaging too, so simple and easy.

NV Colour Chunky Crayon


NV Colour Chunky Crayon - Oh gosh I love this crayon by NV Colour. NV Colour is a new brand and I can see that their gorgeous lip colours are soon going to take over the bloggyworld. I love this pinky colour, unfortunately the crayon has snapped which is slightly depressing but nevertheless, I am still going to find a way to wear it because I'm so in love with it. You may have seen me Instagram  a lot of selfies wearing this colour. It's perfect and easy going for Spring.


St. Tropez Skin Illuminator - Ahhh this gorgeous glowy gold illuminator is just what I needed to wake my skin up. I absolutely love Kim Kardashian's make up look (as mentioned hundreds of times) and this is the perfect product for achieving her golden glow. I just pop a bit of this at the top of my cheek bones and it brings my whole face to life. 

nars sheer glow foundation


Nars Sheer Glow Foundation - This has been on my wish list for years but I finally cracked and bought it, boy I'm so glad I did. I absolutely love it, Tanya Burr swears by it and her make up always looks incredible so I just had to get my hands on it. It gives such a gorgeous coverage and you don't need to apply much of it to look flawless. It covers up all my imperfections too and kind of blurs my face. I am one happy bunny with this purchase. The perfect date night foundation.


Urban Decay Heavy Metal Loose Glitter - This is my favourite thing ever at the moment. I was kindly sent this from Urban Decay and I'm officially hooked. I use their bondage glue with a make up brush to apply a little bit of this to the corners of my eyes and it just wakens me up so so much. I don't know how I ever lived without it?! I hope this never runs out. Maybe I should go grab some more supplies now, it gives me such a beautiful, effortless glitter finish.

What are you loving this month? Have you tried any of the products above? Do you like the sound of any of the above products?

Lots of love, Em x
