WHAT I LOVE: April

I know I've been seriously MIA lately, but with junior year almost ending things have been hectic and for some reason, super dramatic!  BUT, I'm back with my April must haves and I's super excited about them!! 

The first product I've noticed I cannot stop using is my Bumble and Bumble Classic hair spray.  This hair spray definitely isn't light-- and I'm going to have to disagree with the website's claim of it's easy to brush through.  BUTTT I LOVEEEE using this for when I go out at night-- I know I won't frizz or fall limp (meaning my hair of course) while dancing the night away.

Urm, this is actually empty...
I have combination hair, it's have wavy but not really...and can get super frizzy.  Most hair sprays in my opinion are too sticky and just leave my hair gross-- the Bumble and Bumble Classic spray doesn't do either.  I would use another one of the Bumble and Bumble hair sprays to begin with while styling your hair, but def end with the Classic for the strongest hold and shine.

My second love of the month is my Present Clear Makeup Primer by Philosophy.  It really is like clear makeup.  The key to using this product is not using too much-- a little bit seriously goes a long way.  During the warmer months I like to go light on makeup, so using this product def helps me have that bright, clear, and super even complexion without loading up on foundation or anything else (besides concealer).  When I used too much (although I didn't think I had) it made me look shiny, so make sure you use a small amount.  Remember, even though it is a thicker formula and you'll think you need more to cover your entire face...YOU DON'T!

Can you tell I love this?
You can also use Present at night before you layer on your bedtime products.  I would suggest you trying it for a week with just layering serum on top since Present is already moisturizing.  If you don't think it's moisturizing enough then add a small amount of your typical nighttime moisturizer on top of the serum like usual!

My last favorite product I've been using is Zero Oil by Origins.  You already know I loveee Origins, so this product was quick to become another one of my favorites.  I tend to have oily skin in one area of my face, so this is a perfect way to mattify and treat that one area.  I put this on top of my VitaZing in the morning (esp since it's getting hot outside which equals humidity yuckkkkkkkkkkkkkk).  HOWEVER, Zero Oil is totally liquid...like water...so I just pat it into my skin--VitaZing has pigment in it so if you rub in Zero Oil on top it's not too pretty.  

Shake the bottle well before using!
As great as Zero Oil is I reallyyyyyyyyyy wish it came in a spray bottle, it'd make it way easier to use! Nonetheless, I have seen a great improvement in my complexion throughout the day when I don't always have time to touch up and focus on my shiny areas!!
