IN ROTATION | APRIL

Where has this year gone?! We're already 4 months in and spring has officially sprung. I will be doing some spring themed post or video over the next month but for now, here's my monthly edit of whats going to be in rotation in the muji drawers for the next 4 weeks...

Base wise, I've been loving the Chanel vitalumiere aqua foundation, paired with the Maybelline the eraser eye concealer. This combination creates a lightweight base which covers up the majority of problems, which is enough for me day to day. I can definitely see this being my base of choice over the next month. On hotter days i've been opting for a dusting of the Nars light reflecting setting powder all over, it somehow manages to give you an airbrushed finish whilst matting everything down, all whilst giving you a subtle glow. This is the only powder i've used which can keep me shine free all day, so props to you Nars! It will definitely be on hand this month. Underneath makeup i'll be slapping on the Soap & Glory feel good factor whenever i'm in need of some SPF, as it does the job of protection, along with moisturising and smoothing the skin too, full review here.

Onto the rest of the face, and the Jouer mattifying powder bronzer in sunswept has been dragged out from the depths, and i'm so glad. Its a lovely subtle bronzer for warming up the face and lightly contouring as well. I'd say its very similar to Nars laguna bronzer, but a few shades lighter and it only had a very slight shimmer, whereas the shimmer in laguna is more noticeable for me. Blush wise, i have two coral options, one cream one powder. The Tarte amazonian clay blush in tipsy will be my blush of choice when i want something matte and vibrant, then the Aerin multi color in freesia will be brought out on days when i want more of a coral glow, as this leaves a beautiful golden sheen on the skin whilst giving you a subtle hint of colour. Review? Eyes wise, The body shop colour crush eyeshadow in melt my heart is a shade i love to throw on for a bit of subtle sheen and colour, or before applying other eyeshadows as it makes a lovely all over the lid colour in a smokey eye. Whatever the look, I can see this being a part of it!

Lastly lips, and the theme of coral is strong here. On the luxe end of the scale, the Tom Ford lip color sheer in sweet spot is my lippy of choice at the moment, as 1) it makes me feel rather fancy when i whip it out in public, and 2) its the most gorgeous sheer coral peach colour, perfect for my skin tone. At the other end of the spectrum, two drugstore glosses i've been loving are both by maybelline. The colorsensational shine glosses in cashmere rose and electric orange are great to throw on if i want a subtle wash of colour without the upkeep. They're the least sticky glosses i own and keep the lips feeling soft and moisturised. Cashmere rose is a sheerer, peachy nude whilst electric orange is a lovely sheer orange with a more peachy undertone. Love them both.

What products will you be keeping up front this month?
