Time for my favourite beauty products for the month of May!
I have a few favourite blushes this month, all recent additions. From Almay I have a pink Smart Shade blush, it adds such a lovely pink flush to my cheeks and it’s easy to gradually build up a nice colour. Another pink blush is this blush from Tarte in Dollface. It’s quite a soft pink, again it’s great for gradually building up colour on my cheeks. I’ve been trying my hand at contouring using NYX blush in Taupe and a contour brush from Crown Blush C405. They’re a great combination making it simple for a contour novice like myself experiment, without ending up look ridiculous!
For Eyes there have been two stand out palettes. Sephora’s Primal Instinct eyeshadow palette and Tarte’s Be Mattenificent palette. Both palettes have great colours although quite different. Sephora’s Primal Instinct palette have mainly shimmer eyeshadows, Tarte’s palette has neutral matte eyeshadows and a matte blush. Both have great pigmentation and are very soft and creamy, making them really enjoyable to use and easy to blend out. For mascara I have been enjoying the combination of Physicians Formula Organic wear mascara, which adds a nice natural volume to my lashes but can sometimes drop down for me slightly, especially if I use it on my bottom lashes. If I layer Maybelline’s The Rocket Volum’ Express mascara over the top, I have no dropping down and my lashes are really volumised but remain separated and defined.
Finally for skin care. I have recently added two new skin care products to my regular routine. The Super Facialist By Úna Brennan Vitamin C+ Skin Renew Cleansing Oil, I’ve been using this after I’ve removed my makeup using a cleansing water. Or I use it before I use a cleansing balm. It leaves my skin feeling really soft and clean. I’ve also been using La Roche Posay Redermic R every third night, I’ve recently increased it to every second night. The texture of my skin has generally improved and I have noticed an improvements in my breakouts. Between these products I’ve had fewer breakouts and brighter skin! I will do a proper review on these once I’ve used them a bit longer.
