May Favourites!

Hello lovelies! It’s that time of year where it is all about the fresh, dewy looking skin and LOTS of highlight – MY FAVE.


First of all, I have been loving the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation. This is an old favourite of mine and is perfect for this time of year. It has low to medium coverage but gives your skin that super healthy, dewy look. I use this on it’s own or mix it with another foundation to give a bit more of a glow. It has a really lightweight formula so it is ideal for those warmer days that are we are starting to see a lot more of lately! This is an absolute must for everybody’s summer makeup bag, and as you can see from the state of the packaging, mine is very, very well loved.


I have never really been that into highlighter until recently. As I mentioned in my high-end haul, I recently bought the Urban Decay Afterglow highlighter in the shade Sin. Oh my goodness. This is such a pretty highlight and gives the most luminous, glowy look without looking too shiny and oily, which I find a lot of highlighters do seem to do. It is a pale champagne colour with iridescent shimmer running through it. I love this and I am dying to try out the rest of the highlighters in the Urban Decay Afterglow collection.


The Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette is another eye shadow palette that I have been well and truly obsessed with this month! I cannot describe how much I love this palette. It has the perfect variety of matte and shimmer shades, allowing you to create so many different looks with this palette. All of the eye shadows are really pigmented and really easy to blend, lasting all day long! The chocolate scent of this palette is absolutely incredible and the packaging is super cute too! The Sweet Peaches Palette is most definitely the next thing on my never-ending list of ‘things to buy’.


The Barry M Coconut Infusion Nail Polish’s are something else I have been lusting over this month. I have never really been that into nails, I just don’t have the patience waiting for them to dry blah blah blah. But, when I saw the new Coconut Infusion range by Barry M, there were so many gorgeous shades that I had to get a couple. I picked up the shade Laguna which is a lovely pastel blue shade, perfect for this time of year. I also got the shade Surfboard which is a dusky pink shade with mauve undertones. These nail polishes are really pigmented and super long-lasting. I will definitely be purchasing more from this range!


The Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in the shade 005 Nude is a fairly new discovery, but one that has soon found its way into my everyday makeup routine. I apply this to my top and bottom waterlines and this really helps to brighten and widen up my eyes. It lasts a really long time and is waterproof, what else do you need from an eyeliner?


My final favourite is another Rimmel product. This is the Kate Moss Sculpting Palette in the shade 003 Golden Bronze. The thing that I particularly like about this palette is the blusher. I do like the contour shade and the highlighter too, but the blusher is just stunning. It looks quite bright in the pan but just gives your cheeks the perfect flush of colour with a gorgeous rose gold shimmer running through it.


That is it for my May Favourites, I hope you have enjoyed this post! Let me know what you have been loving recently and if you can think of anything I might like to try out!
