Where the hell has this year gone? It’s the end of May already and its almost summer, I just cannot get over it but I have been getting into the summer spirit and cannot wait to try to make the most of those long days.
So this month I will start with quite a few makeup favourite as I have been mixing it up a little, not in the look but with the products I’ve been using. As its started to warm up I’ve ditched my blush and went for a bronzer with the BareMinerals Warmth, I didn’t get on with it at first but now I absolutely love it. It just adds definition and colour back into my face and is so simple to use.
On to eye and this first product I won’t go on about is much as it was featured in a review earlier in the month but day after day I have been reaching for the Kiko Milano Eyeshadow in 130 Satin Beige Cream, I love it. Whether as a blending shade, brow highlight or all over the lid it’s so versatile it’s a new makeup staple. Keeping it simple I’m still loving just simple makeup with black eyeliner, and my go to of May has been the L’Oreal Paris So Couture Super Liner. It’s a felt tip eyeliner which is a deep black, and easy to control to create the desired look.
The final makeup item is a constant favourite but I feel like I should mention it again, the YSL Volupte Sheer Candy in Lush Coconut. It may not add much in terms of colour but it adds a beautiful gloss/shine to the lips without being glossy and sticky, perfect on its own or layered with other products. I’m back on my pastel nail kick from last year and with another Barry M polish as well Barry M Hi-Shine Polish in Sugar Apple. It’s somewhat of a mint shade but not, it’s hard to explain yet I just love how fun and fresh it looks.
My last two products are to help combat dry skin, I get horrible dry cracked skin on my elbows etc. so to treat this I use the unsung hero of Sudocream. It heals dry skin and put it on any hormonal breakouts it really brings them down almost immediately, highly recommend you keep this in the cupboard. Finally to then soften and moisture the treated skin I whip out The Body Shop Mango Body Butter, super summery and it feels great on the skin but what else were you expecting all body shop body butters rock.
So what have your being loving this month? And what exciting things are you doing this summer?
