My March Favourites

Hi Guys,

I have to admit, that although I'm calling this post my March Favourites, it's a bit more of an accumulative of the past three months favourites. But that just doesn't seem to have the same ring to it for a title haha. Looking back though, as I haven't really been blogging, I haven't really been mixing up my makeup and things like that either. So I think it's safe to say that I have also been a fan of these products and non beauty favourites for the whole of March too! 
There are quite a few products I was going to include in this, but I'm saving them for next month as I've only been loving them for a few days! So I apologise in advance for how jam packed next months favourites may end up...
Firstly I have been loving the Illamasqua Precision Gel in Infinity, this is the only gel liner I use and actually pretty much the only liner I use full stop. It's the most pigmented liner I have tried and I'm pretty sure it's the darkest one on the market. I've been loving my wings and flicks this month and I couldn't of done it without this, it glides on so effortlessly and takes the stress out of liner for me. Which is always a huge relief! 

I have been loving the Laura Mercier Plumping Gloss in Rose Flush because of how natural it looks as an everyday lip. But even though its a gloss it has an amazing amount of staying power! I can apply this quickly and get a tint of colour when I'm in a rush and not have to worry about it fading a few minutes later. 

Nars Laguna Bronzer has found its way back into my heart again, I had been using another bronzer and hit pan, so it was panic stations when I thought I was out of bronzer. However how I managed to forget about Laguna I dont know, because it is such an amazing bronzer I would of thought its been engraved into my brain. Although I really am quite pale, Laguna surprisingly really works, I was worried initially that it would be quite warm on me, but it blends so well and just adds a subtle glow and detention to the face. 
 I was a bit unsure about the Smashbox Primer Water, just because I really wondered if it really worked. But curiosity got the better of me and I finally bit the bullet and purchased it and now to be honest I regret not getting it sooner. It is amazing! It's such a quick and easy way to apply primer and it actually prolongs the wear time of my foundation. I'm going to do a full review of this soon as I think I've completely fallen in love. But if there's one thing I say to run out and try straight away it's this! 

Perfume is one thing that I struggle to buy for myself, I don't know why, I just do. But I am a huge fan of the My Burberry scent and I always have a sniff of the other offerings Burberry has, yet never purchase them. However at the start of the year I decided to invest (I basically say invest to try and make the purchases justified) in the Burberry perfumes I've been lusting over for the past few years. In my defence they were better than half price! One of the one's I picked up is Burberry Brit Rhythm and it's the one I seem to be reaching for the most, its a lovely every day scent, clean and floral almost. 
@theohurts and @adamhurts were incredible last night, easily the best gig I've ever been to, wish it had't ended!

Possibly my all time favourite of the entire year so far was getting to go to the Hurts Surrender Tour. I've been a fan of Hurts for years now, but I only just got to see them live (and properly fan girl meeting them after the show! I'd say I'm sorry but I'm not... haha) back in February. I can easily say that it was by far the best Gig I have ever been to and I'm still have withdrawals now. I've actually based my final Graded Unit on the new album and I don't think I've ever been so excited for a piece of work in my life! 

Which I was also wondering if documenting my experience in studying Makeup Artistry is something you'd like to see? I've been toying with the idea for quite some time but never seem to actually do it, so let me know! 

A very exciting part of my studies was entering into the Illamasqua Student Competition, which I did a bit of a blog post on here. But I made it into the final 4, which is just insane and thank you to everyone who voted for me! Sadly I didn't win, but the other entries were fantastic and I'm just so pleased to of even been recognised by Illamasqua. for my work Which if you're a regular reader you'll know I'm a teeny bit obsessed with Illamasqua haha...
