May Favourites

This month has been a roller coaster for me and it feels like my feet have barely touched the ground! I'm ready to go onwards and upwards, with my holiday to Corfu only 2 weeks away (back on the juice cleanse I go!) I've spent the month trying out different items in my professional kit and lusting over everything I want to buy when my professional card for MAC arrives!

Make Up Revolution Cream Blush//The Body Shop InstaBlur//Primark Footies//Max Factor 3 in 1 Foundation//New Look Necklaces
As I mentioned in my last post, I had a product reaction that left my face burnt and flaky, so I needed a foundation with a higher coverage than usual to cover the redness on my face. The Max Factor 3 in 1 foundation has covered my skin nicely without looking cakey. I also mixed it with L'Oreal's Infallible 24HR foundation for a catwalk show, which gave the models a flawless, bright and glowing finish.

The second item I keep borrowing from my kit is the Make Up Revolution Cream Blushers. I usually go for a really pink toned blusher, but lately I've been opting for coral and deeper pink tones instead. Now that I've gotten better at applying cream blush I really like the soft effect it gives.

I'm always on the search for the perfect primer, so I jumped at the chance to try out The Body Shops Instablur(*) as soon as it launched. I expected it to be a gel like consistency like the Matte It Primer or Smashboxes Photo Finish Primer, but it's a bit of a harder texture, almost waxy in comparison! It does melt onto the face with ease however, giving a smooth base for long lasting make up without feeling greasy like some silicone based primers.

My footwear has getting a bit tatty so I bought a few new pairs of shoes from New Look- I love buying from the teens section, most of the shoes are £10 or under and they normally have the same shoes as the adult section! I found they are a bit narrow at the toes so wearing them without socks is painful and causes me blisters. So I nipped in to Primark and bought a few pairs of nude and black Seamless Footies, which I have been wearing pretty much every day since.

I have 3 shirts that I wear quite regularly and I can't resist teaming them up with a cute necklace. I have three different kinds that I seem to alternate between, although I have been favouring the chunky chain version the most. They add a little something extra to the outfit and snazz up my plainer shirts.

What have you been reaching for most this month? Are you going anywhere on holiday this summer?
