Everyday Makeup Stash: Apil 2019

I can’t believe it’s been a year since everyday makeup stash was a regular series on my blog! As I’m working on 19 in 2019 project pan, what I plan to do this time is talk you through what I was using last month, what I enjoyed and what I will be switching out in April.


My everyday makeup is stored in three compartments for face, base and eyes so that’s how I’m going to split this post.


I was pretty successful in March, ticking two products off my project pan with the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation and Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer both finished.

Loving: NYX Honey Dew Me Up Primer

This made it to my March favourites and I just love it! I’m obsessed with trying primers but this is staying put.

Swapping: wet n wild Photofocus Concealer in Light/Medium Beige

As extra coverage over foundation, this slightly-too-dark for me shade is fine but I often use concealer on its own and this was making patches of my face look orange used alone.

April primers: NYX Honey Dew Me Up/PS…Vitamin Primer/Mini Benefit Porefessional

April foundation: Revolution Pro Foundation Drops F6/Rimmel Breathable Ivory

April concealers: Bourjous Radiance Reveal/NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop


I managed to finish off my BECCA powder so I can move onto to something else but my highlighter collection is still overflowing…

Loving: Rimmel Lasting Radiance Finishing Powder in Honeycomb

Sometimes finishing powders can make an already powered face look cakey but this just adds a nice bit of radiance and colour to the skin.

Swapping: The Body Shop Honey Bronzer 03

This is my fave bronzer but I’ve been trying to use it up for so long now I just want to give something else a go.

April powder: Essence All About Matt/ColourPop No Filter Setting Powder

April bronze & contour: NYX Contour Palette/Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer

April blusher: Too Faced Papa Don’t Peach/Nip+Fab Blusher Palette

April highlighter: BECCA Champagne Pop/Revolution x Soph Palette


Not much change in the eyes category with a few things still to use up!

Loving: wet n wild Retractable Brow Pencil

This pencil in the shade medium brown is perfect for me and I love the shape of it.

Swapping: Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara

I still love this mascara but I’m enjoying a fluffy lash look more at the moment.

April brows: Benefit Ka-Brow 05/wet n wild Retractable Brown Pencil medium brown/Benefit Gimme Brow 05/NYX Control Freak Brow Gel

April mascara: NYX Worth the Hyp/Avon Supershock Max

Eyes: Essence I Heart Colour Base/Tarte Chrome Paint Pot Park Ave Princess/Cover FX Shimmer Veil Moon Stone/Revolution Eye Glisten Yours Truly
