May beauty favourites

Time for a monthly favourites, here are some of my new discoveries I’m loving this month

Laura Mercier flawless contouring palette

Having always used powder contours, I decided to try cream as I thought it might be better for my skin as I’m dry and I can say this cream contour palette works like a dream, it glides on perfectly and is really easy to blend, it comes with 3 different shades, one for fair skin tones then a slightly darker shade then an even darker shade for dark skin tones, I start with the lightest shade then go over with the medium shade for more definition, it also comes with 2 cream highlighters, again one for fair skin and one for dark but I think the darker one would make a really nice cream blusher too, also to mention the palette was voted number 1 contouring palette above Anastasia Beverly Hills famous contour kit

Nars radiant creamy concealer

After a while this hydrating, lightweight concealer once again makes a second appearance to my make up bag as I thought it would be good for summer as even though it hides dark circles well and is full coverage, it’s not too thick like most full coverage concealers and it doesn’t crease by the way either

Yves Saint Laurent top secrets hydrating setting spray

If you have dry skin like me, you will love this setting spray as it is really hydrating and leaves your skin glowing, most importantly it keeps your make up looking flawless hours after application

Mac tropic tonic lipstick

It was time to get my free lipstick after taking my empties (incase you didn’t know, if you take 6 empty products to your nearest Mac counter, you get to choose a free lipstick) and for summer I fancied something bright and I came across tropic tonic and fell in love with it immediately, if you’re looking for a coral shade to add to your collection, this could be the one, it is matte but creamy and would be great for adding a bit of colour on subtle make up days

Cloud nine touch iron

The best straighteners I’ve ever used, not only do they heat up immediately, they straighten your hair to perfection in just one stroke, they are buttonless and switch themselves off when you unplug them, perfect for when you’re in a hurry, if you’re feeling loyal to your GHDs, just know cloud nine is owned by GHD, you can also choose the heat best suited to your hair type by touching the plates together 3 times to switch between temperatures, if you don’t know what to buy with your birthday money or your work bonus, get your hands on some cloud nine touch irons
