May Favourites 2016

I can't believe it's the 2nd of June today and it's freezing cold... what's up with that? There were a lot of great beauty products I used throughout May to help me feel ready for Summer, and today I'm showing you what they are. I hope you enjoy!



Body


St Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower Lotion Light
Most of you will know that I am fair skinned, which means baring skin in Summer would be like that part in Twilight when Edward exposes himself. I decided that if I do choose to wear a pretty playsuit or give me strength, a pair of shorts, that I would have golden limbs at the ready. I've been using this gradual tanner again which is great for lighter skins because the colour is very natural and buildable. I've applied it four days straight now and I'm looking  golden and healthy. There's no funny smell and it doesn't go streaky, I love it! 
This one is best for fair/light folk but fear not, St Tropez have just released a new Medium version, which will work much better for you gorgeous medium/deeper skins!


L'OCCITANE Shea Butter Hand Cream
I'm very fussy with hand creams because I hate the feeling of sticky, greasy which is very common with rich creams. Recently I went to my local L'OCCITANE and found the Shea Butter range which is beautiful. The hand cream is so moisturising but so lightweight at the same time. I love it because I can feel a difference straight away on my hard, dry patches. It's perfect for day or night time and it has a really nice scent too. It ticks all the boxes for me and I think I'll be back for the lavender one...


Clinique Chubby In The Nude Foundation Stick
I like a fresh but flawless base in the warmer months and this gives me exactly that. I stripe the foundation onto my clean skin and work it in with a brush or if I'm in a rush, my fingers. It has a lovely creamy texture that almost melts into the skin. It's a sheer-medium coverage but you can definitely build it up. I have it in 02 Abundant Alabaster which is a good match for my skin. There are 10 shades, so hopefully there is something for everyone. I really like this foundation and I think it will become my Summer staple!


MAC Pro Longwear Waterproof Colour Stick - Tea Leaves
This is the perfect one product taupe/bronze eye for Summer. When it says long-lasting, it isn't joking. I apply this to my lids and lower lash line and blend it out with a Real Techniques Domed Shadow Brush. I build it to a semi smokey eye, add some brown kohl and mascara and I'm done. One day, I wore this from 11am to 10pm and it did not budge! Like, seriously. I will definitely be picking up more shades and if you like quick and easy products , you should check them out too! 


MAC Strobe Cream
I've been using this under or mixed with my foundation recently and I can't describe the luminosity it gives. It has a beautiful pearl iridescence which adds glow without being shimmery. A little goes a very long way. I use a dollop of this first then go over with my Clinique foundation and I look healthy and radiant. It doesn't interfere with other products and my foundation actually lasts better with this product. My new favourite primer. 


Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector - 04
I get very lazy with re-applying my lip products but this makes it so easy when I'm out and about. This is a cross between a balm and glow in texture which lasts really well on the lips. They are quite sheer but give just enough colour for an extra healthy pop. They also smell incredible. Another hand bag staple for Summer. 

Thank you so much for reading!
