May Favourites


Hey, so I can’t believe it’s already June, it’s officially the summer months (excuse me while I squeal without excitement) so although it feels like it was only a day long but I did love some things so I will now share them with you:

Makeup

Max Factor Crème Puff Blush in Nude Mauve 10 – so in the spring who doesn’t love a pink blush to make you look more healthy, I know I do, so I have been loving wearing this blush, this is really nude and subtle so it adds a light glow rather than a bright pink glow, this blends so easily in to my makeup and I think that it would look great on most skin tones but especially for people like me, who have really pale skin.

Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara – so recently I have been trying out all types of mascaras and I have fallen in love with this one, this is because it really lifts up my lashes, making them look really long and separated giving the look that I am literally wearing false lashes, and the waterproof version has the exact same effect but the waterproof one is really hard to get off, but overall such an incredible mascara.

L’Oreal Paris Infallible Fixing Mist – so this, and I’m not exaggerating, keeps my makeup almost likes its glued to my face, it keeps it on absolutely all day long and it stops me from looking oily or needing to powder the only thing I don’t like about it is that it makes your makeup rub off if you rub your face but it is the only setting spray that prolongs the wear of my makeup properly.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette in Dim Light, Incandescent Light and Radiant Light – I cannot tell you my excitement when I got this palette, it is so gorgeous, so there is a gorgeous shimmer highlighter, a really light bronzer colour for a really subtle glow and a darker less shimmery colour, they are all so pigmented and give a gorgeous overall glow to my face.

Skincare

Super Facialist by Una Brennan, Salicylic Acid Anti Blemish Pore Purifying Clay Mask – so recently I have been trying loads of face masks to try and improve my skin but honestly I feel like this is the only one that has actually reduced the amount of blemishes and I think the best thing about it is that it smells absolutely gorgeous and it really works.

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, Hot Cloth Cleanser – this is something else that has dramatically reduced the amount of spots and redness on my skin and it makes my skin feel so much smoother and it makes my skin look so much healthier and this just gets rid of any dirt or oil on my skin making it overall much cleaner and this cleanser feels so nice on my skin.

The Organic Pharmacy Antioxidant Lip Balm – this is such a soothing lip balm that leaves my lips plump and soft, this is so nice when you have sore lips to soothe them and moisturise them, and what makes this lip balm even better than not only does it smell amazing but it uses lots of natural ingredients that are better for your skin, this is such an amazing product.

Music

Ariana Grande – now recently loads of new albums have been coming out and I have been listening to loads but I think that Dangerous Woman is such an incredible album with a mixture of different types of songs on it and it helps that Ariana Grande is such an incredible singer and my favourite songs from this album are Leave me lonely, side to side and into you.

TV show

Suits – so this is a program about the life of lawyers and honestly I find it so interesting, it also has lots of different story lines and to be honest this this TV program does everything, it makes me cry, laugh, smile, pissed off and disappointed in people and I just absolutely love it.

Person

Must be Maddie – so this is someone who came up on someone Instagram recommended me to follow so I stumbled onto her channel and honestly I truly love it, she is such a normal (in a good way), nice, relatable person who is still in high school which means she’s close to my age which makes watching her even more enjoyable.

Random Things

Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Gel – so although this could go in either the makeup or skincare section it doesn’t really fit in there but basically when it comes to cleaning brushes this is a saviour, it leaves them feeling soft and fresh and looking a great shape and brand new and it works well on all brushes not just the real techniques brushes, it is perfect.

I hope you enjoyed this and are as excited for summer as I am and let me know if you enjoy my monthly favourites. Let me know of anything you would like me to talk about in another future post. That’s all for now,
