Monthly Favourites | May 2015

June 1st and it's lashing rain. I spent the day in my pyjamas being lazy!! I am currently sitting beside a gorgeous fire, eating apple tart and you do!! 

First up in my monthly favourites is the Seventeen WOW! Skin Tan Liquid Glow. This stuff is magic. It is summer in a bottle!! I love mixing it with my primer or popping a little onto the back of my hand and using a stippling brush to apply it to my cheekbones. I haven't tried it yet but I plan on applying it to my collarbones and shin bones to give my tan that dewy glow. 100% a must have product in your summer makeup bag.

Earlier this month I got the most awful breakout on my chin. I don't even know what caused it to be honest and I was desperate for a solution. I spotted the Vichy Normaderm Haulspot in work and decided to give it a go. It worked amazingly well!! It dried up my spots and got rid of them in two or three days depending on their original size.

This product contain salisylic acid which can be quite drying on the skin so be sure to only apply it directly to your spot. I used a cotton bud sometimes just to be sure and apply it right to the area.

When it comes to applying eyelashes either strip or individual the adhesive is everything!! I wear eyelashes 90% of the time and I always apply them with the DUO Eyelash Adhesive. Even though it looks tiny it lasts a hell of a long time. For best results apply DUO to the false eyelashes, blow on them for like 45 seconds to make the adhesive tacky and then aiming for the centre of your eye pop on the lashes. 

The search for the perfect nude lipstick is never ending! However I have found a firm favourite in none other than the Essence Cosmetics range. The shade is 'Oh So Matt' and it is oh so impressive. I applied this in a hurry one morning going to work and it lasted six hours flawlessly before it needed a little touch up in the centre of my lips.

Considering the price of these lipsticks I cannot believe I had gotten that amount of time before a top up. I can't remember the exact price but I'm sure it was less that €3!! If you see them...grab them!!

I only picked up the Sleek Makeup Brow Kit the other day but I have used it a few times and I love it. I have used so many eyebrow products that it's not often one would stick out but this one really impressed me. I bought it in the dark shade because my hair is quite dark and I love a dramatic brow. 

The kit includes pigmented wax, powder, an angled brush, a blending brush and a cute little mini tweezers for only €9.99. Months ago I bought the Benefit Browzing palette and I am raging now because there is absolutely no difference what so ever in the two. 

The IsaDora Colour Correcting Concealer Palette is my best friend in the morning. It makes me look normal!!! The orange tone for dark circles is magic. I usually apply that one underneath my foundation and the lighter concealer over it. I then pop on some powder and it holds for the whole day. 

I get a lot of redness across my nose and now and again I get a bad spot that needs covering. The green concealer is amazing for this. If you do plan on using on make sure you blend it out well otherwise the green may leave sort of a grey veil on your skin. 

The Catrice Cosmetics Multi Colour Compact Powder in shade 010 Rose Beige has been my go to powder for the past few weeks. This powder contains five incredibly mattifying shades which perfectly even out your complexion. The powder itself it soft and ultra-fine. I bought this powder to try something a little different. Sometimes I feel like translucent powders can be a little chalky but this one brings just the right amount of warmth to my skin.
