Current Beauty Favourites - May

Wednesday, 28 May 2014


This month I had a little rummage around my stash and rediscovered and old favourite in the form of the Maybelline colour tattoo in ‘On and On Bronze’. This has been my go to product if I have wanted something on my lids, without really having to faff about basically! I apply it with my fingers and then using a fluffy brush, I quickly blend it out a little. A quick one step smokey eye!

We all know I am a fan of NARS Products, getting the Guy Bourdin cheek palette was such a good decision of mine as I don’t think I have reached for another blush or contour since it arrived! I had never tried the infamous Laguna bronzer, but now I totally understand the hype! I love having the option to switch around my blushes too. They are all there in a handy little palette! To go along side with the highlighter in this palette I have been using the Real Techniques setting brush. Now I know a lot of people use it for setting their conealer under their eyes. Which I admit – I am tempted to get another one of this brush for. I prefer to use it to apply highlighting powder to the tops of my cheek bones, down the bridge of my nose and on my cupids bow. Its just the perfect size! Maybe I just have a small face, but I have found this particular brush works a lot better for me in comparison to others I have used before! It’s also REALLY soft, which is a big bonus too of course.

Remember my Look Fantastic haircare haul? Well I have been loving the majority of those products, but the one stand out one for me recently has been the Redken All soft supple touch spray. I use this right after I have towel dried my hair. It is perfect for detangling my locks after a shower. It also has conditioning  and strengthening properties meaning I am well on my way to getting my hair in a better state by using this a few times a week! It’s pretty damn affordable and smells lovely!

What products have you been enjoying using recently?

Much love
