May Favourites | 2017

As you can see by the photo above I have been loving a lot of beauty things this month....surprise, surprise. 

There are a lot of things to get through so let’s begin.

The first thing I've loved and worn religiously throughout May is my Denim fleece jacket from Topshop, I bought this around about September last year and wore it quite a lot back then. I dusted it off the top of my wardrobe and can't stop wearing it again, it's summery but slightly windy weather here in the UK still, so this is keeping my snug enough and warm enough without letting the cold air whisk me away.

One thing I’ve been loving hugely this past month is the Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse. This cleansing duo is amazing as you can see I’ve completely used it all up & I have already restocked and bought another pot, makes my skin feel squeaky clean and is one of my new all time favourite cleansers, it’s even replaced my beloved Clinique Take The Day Off. Seriously this is one skincare product that everyone NEEDS to try it’s wonderful. More in depth review here.


Bronzing season has finally hit the UK & I’m loving it, yes I’m pale and caspar like but even us fair skinned girls love a cheeky bit of bronzer. The two I’ve been loving this month are the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess in 01 Fair, it’s this beautiful bronzer that has this terracotta redish undertone that is actually surprisingly perfect for those of us with fair skin. When applied and swatched it isn’t muddy or orangey, it adds the perfect amount of warmth without being overdone. If you are fair like me and feel like you can’t wear bronzer then trust me you can & this one is brilliant it’s also a semi matte with a tiny bit of shimmer.

Another bronzer I’ve been loving is the Benefit Hoola Light, this recently just got launched by Benefit and it’s amazing. I’ve never been so happy to have a bronzer that is actually been designed for fair skin, fair skin is something I feel isn’t talked about enough or in the beauty world considered. This is another gorgeous bronzer that adds the most perfect amount of warmth to the fairest of them all. It’s not only a beautiful shade but is smells incredible too, slightly sandalwoody and sweet. All in all top marks to benefit, I will be doing a look and a proper review of this over the next few days.

Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener, I have dark circles and on a good day I look like I’ve been punched in the eye. This I’ve used daily this past month as it’s helping hide my horrendous dark circles, when it says eye brightener it really means it. I look like I’ve had 8-9 hours sleep when I use this so I will not be letting this part my makeup bag any time soon. It’s really easy to blend lasts all day and beyond. I’m just really loving this I’m in the shade Light Bisque 2. The only thing I don't like about this eye brightener is the smell, it smells like something you shouldn't or wouldn't want to put on your face, a bit like glue.....PVA glue.

Nars is one brand that I ALWAYS use and trust for base products, one new thing that I’ve fallen head over heels in love with is the Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser In Finland. I adore the Sheer Glow & have talked about it countless time on here, This tinted moisturiser is perfect for the summer and for those makeup less makeup days. It feels extremely light, lasts all day, doesn’t go patchy or look cakey at all. I love how light and fresh this look & feels on my skin, if you are like me and prefer something lighter to wear base wise on good skin days or in the summer months then definitely check out this, I will be doing a more chatty review of this product as I’ve been loving it SO much.

Lipstick wise, it's no secret that I love the Rimmel London Lipsticks, the ones by Kate Moss are some of my all time favourite drugstore lippies. The one lipstick that I've worn almost daily this past month is the Rimmel London Kate Moss 54 Rock 'N' Roll Nude. It's this gorgeous pinky beige lipstick that I not only love but so does my mum. It's very flattering on all skin tones and is my perfect nude lipstick. Rimmel lipstick are some of the best lipsticks on the highstreet, very creamy, lasts a really long time and great pigmentation. I really rate Rimmel Lipsticks.

That is everything I've loved this past month, what did you love in May?
