Cue the cliché..... Where has them 5 months gone! I can't believe we are now in June and half the year is almost over! Anyway, today I'm talking about my May beauty favs. Products I've been using the past month which include some olden goldies and new finds... You know the drill at this stage, now enough waffling. Here are my May Favourites!
Chanel Universal Bronze
Not going to talk too much about this as I have a dedicated blog post here. In a nutshell... I'm obsessed!
MAC Burgundy Times 9 Palette
I remember when I first got this palette way back last year it was the only thing I used for a really long time. I then went away from it and it was thrown in the back of the drawer and forgotten about. That was until two weeks ago when I picked it back up and started to use it again.
I love these palettes as they are compact and the colours are right up my alley.
UD x Jean Michel Basquait Eyeliners
First off this whole collection is beautiful but I love these two eyeliners from the new Urban Decay x Jean Michel Basquait collaboration. The colours are so different and unusual but really beautiful. I particularily love the acid green liner (Post Punk). The brick red (Anatomy) is also stunning, I've been alternating between the two with every look I've been creating recently. They retail for €20 from Debenhams.
Lancome Cream Cushion Blush
This little pot of magic is BEAUTIFUL. This is the shade Je M'appelle Rose and while it is branded as a cream blush it is more a highligher in my opinion. It is a stunning rose gold and I have been using this on all my clients to leave their skin looking healthy and glowing.
I did receive this at a press day recently and I have not put it down since. The texture is so unique I'm not sure how to describe it. It's one of those you will just have to swatch and see how gorgeous it is for yourself.
Laura Mercier Translucent Powder
It is worth the hype! The powder is so finely milled it just leaves the skin looking airbrushed. All my other setting powders have become obsolete since getting this.
Inglot Pigments & Brush
Since Inglot has come to Athlone it is alot more accessible for a lot of people in the Midlands - myself included. I recently picked up the 67 pigment which is a rose colour and the 54 body sparkle. The two of these combined make for the prettiest eye look. Obsessed!
I also picked up the new 38SS brush. I am loving this for foundation at the minute. I prefer a smaller brush when applying foundation so I can really work it into the skin and this brush is the perfect size.
MAC Faux Lipstick
A cult favourite and now one of my favourites. It is just the 'your lips but better' colour for me. I love it so much it is constantly in my handbag and no one else is allowed use it!
Duo Latex Free Glue
I feel eyelash glue is extremely underrated. It's one of them products that you forget about and yet it's a key in any makeup look. I love this one because it's latex free for anyone that is sensitive and I also love that it has a brush applicator which makes it so easy to get an even layer of glue on your false lashes!
So that's my favourites for the month of May. The eyeshadow palette has been my favourite find because I genuinely forgot how obsessed I was with it!
