Beauty ¦ April makeup

So it's that time of the month once again, today I'm going to be showing you the products I have found myself reaching for the most over the month of April. This month I've been sticking to a very similar look on a day to day basis and just changing up whether or not I wear eyeshadow.
 Urban Decay Naked skin foundation - Oh I do love this foundation, I would go as far as to say that it is my favourite everyday foundation. It's a really lovely medium coverage with a glowy finish making it perfect for everyday wear.
Clarins Instant light concealer - This concealer is another big favourite at the moment. I actually popped up my review of this //here// so I won't linger on it to much but it is the perfect concealer for anyone with a drier skin type as it offers a really high coverage without being thick and cakey.
Benefit Hoola - I've been skipping blush this month and instead just using this pretty much all over my face. I love the shade of this as it has enough orange to warm up the face but not to much so that it makes you look muddy.
Barry M Chisel cheeks contour kit - If you are a regular around here you will know how much I love the contour powder in the palette. It is a beautiful grey toned brown which adds a really beautiful natural shadow to the face. If you are pale and are looking for a drugstore contour powder I would definitely recommend this one.
MUA Undress your skin shimmer Highlighter in Pink shimmer - I am a little bit obsessed with highlighter at the moment and this is one of my current favourites. It is a beautiful pinky toned shade which adds the most incredible luminosity to the face, I will say though if you prefer a less intense highlight I'd give this one a miss as it is pretty intense.
Anastasia Dip brow - In all honesty I wasn't a big fan of this the first couple of times that I tried it however NOW I've got used to it I'm getting along with it much better. It is super easy to go overboard and ened up with sharpie eyebrows. I've found that by using a really tiny bit of product I can get a really natural look and I can then build on that. I think my favourite thing about this has to be the lasting power. You can put this one at 7 in the morning and you will still have perfect brows at 7 at night.
Benefit Gimme brow - This is my favourite brow setting gel as not only does it lock my brows in place it also gives than a little bit of volume and colour.
Urban Decay Primer potion - I feel like I mention this one so much and I feel like it is going to feature in basically all of these monthly makeup posts but I feel like I just need to remind you guys that it is the best and that if you don't already own it you need it.
Makeup geek shadows in Shimma Shimma, Peach smoothie, In the spotlight, Mango tango and Cherry cola - Will I ever stop talking about makeup geek eyeshadows? The answer is probably not this month I've been really loving a super corally orange eye. I've been using peach smoothie all over the lid to even out any discoloration then using the shade mango tango in the crease (This shadow is the most insane corally pink ever) then for all over the lid I've been using the foiled eyeshadow in the shade in the spotlight and finishing off the lid with a little bit of cherry cola in the outer third and under the eyes. I've then been using Shimma shimma on my brow bone and inner corner to highlight.
Benefit They're real - This is my favourite mascara but I'm pretty sure that a good 98% off you already know that so I'm not going to dwell on it but if you are on the lookout for a high end mascara I would definitely recommend this one.
Sleek Matte me in Birthday suit - I have been a little obsessed with this in April. The shade is a gorgeous pinky nude which reminds me a lot of one of the mac "Kylie Jenner" shades. I love the finish of these lip creams and I actually picked up another shade from superdrug a couple of weeks ago so I'm pretty excited to give that a go.
So that's it for this months makeup, I hope you've enjoyed this post and I'd love for you to let me know what makeup you have been loving this month.
