Goodness gracious it’s been a busy month. I’ve had such a good few weeks doing lots of different fun things – a lot of which I’ve been able to do with G which has made them that much more enjoyable.
With regard to my May beauty habits, there’s been a nice mix of old and new products, although most are make up-related; I’ve been having some issues with my skin during the past few weeks and have been trying to tweak my skincare routine in order to try and find a balance that suits my complexion.
In the meantime though, we have a few ace beauty products, such as the L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation, which I’ve complimented on so many occasions, so I won’t ramble on about it again here. Needless to say it’s superb. And I’ve been pairing that with an old favorite, the Cover Girl Ready Set Gorgeous Concealer, which works so brilliantly when it comes to covering up my eye bags; it doesn’t crease, it doesn’t cake and it manages to get rid of all that dark misery currently sitting under my peepers.
Then there’s the Ciate Triple Shot Mascara, another longtime favorite that I’ve droned on about so many times. It’s so brilliant, and does fantastic things to my lashes. And I’ve really been loving doing a gold eye at the moment with the Marc Jacobs Highlighner Gel Eye Crayon in Sunset. It’s really pretty and looks so nice with a bit of bronzer too.
I did a bit of a Deborah Lippmann haul the other day and picked up a couple of polishes and some nail care items (want to see a haul? Give me a holler). And two that have already made a seriously good impression are the Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish in Blue Orchid and the Deborah Lippmann The Stripper Hydrating Nail Lacquer Remover. Now I’ll be honest, I picked up the nail polish remover mainly because of the name but it’s actually a seriously amazing product. It gets rid of nail polish in just one swipe, but doesn’t dry out the nail at all. The polish meanwhile is just beautiful. The colour is so stunning, and works so well now that I have a wee bit of a tan.
The very few skincare items that I have include the Eyeko Hydrogel Eye Patches which have been so great when it comes to chilling out my slightly puffy eyes. The hot weather tends to make my eyes a bit red and sore and these just help to calm them down. And then I add the Philosophy Hope in a Jar Eye Cream which is so lovely and soothing. It calms down my eyes, helps combat dry skin and de-puffs. It’s beautiful.
Last but not least, we have SPF. Sunscreen-wise, I can’t ever see myself using another option than than the Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunscreen. It blends into the skin so nicely, doesn’t leave a horrible tacky feeling after it’s been applied and gives really good protection. I even use it on my face and thus far it hasn’t made me break out or anything, which is incredibly rare. When it comes to my lips however, I’ve been opting for the Chapstick SPF 30. Nothing fancy at all, but it does the job, and that’s all I really need!
