Goodbye April

April Showers bring May flowers…

So April is almost over, which is insane. I have less than 4 weeks left in high school before I leave for study leave. This time last year I was sitting my science exams and worrying about year 11 and what was going to happen in my final year of high school.

Over the past five years, time has gone incredibly quickly. I’ve had friendships which have lasted and friendships I’ve thrown over the shoulder and said goodbye to,  I’ve had rows and troubles with others but picked myself up after them, I’ve had an incredible high school experience which I’m so grateful to have had. Now I have to look forward and start thinking about college and my later life and what my plans and hopes are for the future. It’s scary to think about but it’s happening and this is all real life.

This April I decided to start my blog up again and I’ve already gained quite a few followers (which I thank you all for so much!), and I’m enjoying it so much. I love reading other people’s blogs and getting involved in the comments and discussing different things with their followers.
Apart from my birthday, April has been fairly quiet and non eventful. Now I have 13 exams to start preparing for before my results day in August which I’m terrified for!

What year are you in? Where and what have you been to see and do this month? Let me know in the comments below!

The Daily Face – 29th April

Hello everyone!

So I’ve kept these products aside so I could write this post for you! I used to do everyday makeup looks on YouTube (which can be found here)

Today I’m showing you what I wore on my face to school – and today wasn’t really the best of days for me so I decided to go simple purely because of the fact I felt as sick as a dog and was very dizzy all morning.

The first product I used was the Nivea Men’s Post Shave Balm for sensitive skin. This product is amazing, and if it wasn’t for NikkiTutorials, this product wouldn’t have even been thought about for being used as a primer.

20160429_204744I personally absolutely love this primer, and it contains glycerin, meaning your makeup is guaranteed to stay on all day. Glycerin is the main factor in a regular primer. I use my hands and use circular motions to apply this primer, and I wait till it gets tacky. Then as soon as it gets tacky, this is when I go in with concealer.

Last weekend I fell in love with a concealer and couldn’t resist buying it. This is the Mac Prolong Wear Concealer, and because I’m as pale as a ghost, I bought the lightest tone type with the lightest shade which is NW15.

20160429_204820 At first I was very optimistic but very nervous to spend so much money on a concealer, but it was definitely worth it. It’s so highlighting and really stays on all day with hardly any creasing. It made me feel a little bit better for spending £17.50!

Next on top of my spots, I did a little mixture which consisted of the Prolong Wear and the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer. Unfortunately I took a really bad photo of it but here it is –

20160429_204850 This concealer however, is such a pain in the neck to find the right shade because the light shade was too orange on me, and even this one is really not the best tone on me. Under my eyes I find this is definitely too orange, and it just sets weird, so I prefer to use it on my spots instead. If I don’t use this, its the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer which is everyone’s number one favourite just because of how long it lasts and the fact it doesn’t sink into your pores makes life so much better.

To set all of this in place, I used my Stay Matte powder by Rimmel in the shade 001 transparent. I personally get a very shiny nose throughout the day and i have no idea why but I think my skin is an oily / dry / normal combination and sometimes it is very sensitive (but thats a blog for another day 😉 )

(The picture won’t load for the powder, I’ll try and insert it tomorrow)

Finally I applied brows and mascara using two of my all time favourite products.The mascara on the right is the dupe for the Benefit Rollerlash which is the Maybelline Lash Sensational. I prefer to use this mascara when it’s slightly dried out a little bit. The product really extends your lashes and seperates them really well!

The product I used for my brows was the MUA Pro Brow Eyebrow Kit. This is only £4 from Superdrug and I highly  recommend it, it has amazing pigmentation and the brush is actually decent!

So that was my daily face of makeup! If you have any blog posts you would like to see, pop a comment down below and let me know what some of your favourite make-up products are!

If someone today gives you grief, smile at them because it’ll drive them up the wall

Have a wonderful day
