May Beauty Favourites


Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Contour - I seriously loved this product throughout May! It makes it so simple and quick to map out the areas you want to contour and glides onto the skin so nicely. Once I have roughly drawn on the lines of where I want to contour, I use the RT duo-fiber contour brush to blend everything in which I find works really well. Then I use a powder contour shade over the top to set it into place. I just love the application of it because it's the perfect shape to create definition. There is also a cream highlighter chubby stick so I really want to give that a try too.

MAC 'All Fired Up' Lipstick - This has definitely become one of my all-time favourite MAC lipsticks and it's my go-to lipstick at the moment. The shade is a mix between a deep fushia pink colour and a red. It has a retro matte finish which doesn't budge throughout the day.

MAC Fix + - I have fallen back in love with this product, I stopped using it for a while but now I'm hooked again! I use it just before applying my foundation and it does a good job of injecting some moisture into my skin. Then I use it again once all my make up is done which blends everything together nicely and gives a fresh glowing look to my skin.

MAC 'Soar' Lip Liner - Sorry for the overload of MAC products but this is the last one! MAC Soar lip liner has been on my wishlist for a while and I'm so happy that it's finally mine. It's unlike any other lip shade I own, it's a mauvy pink kind of colour and I love the way it looks on its own. Or I sometimes pop Velvet Teddy on top and that combo goes together really well.

Rimmel Exaggerate Eyeliner - I love the brush on this eyeliner as it allows for maximum control and precision because it is quite stiff, it's just the right size making it so easy to apply and it gives a smooth defined finish. Plus the formula is fantastic, it has great colour pay off as an intense black and extremely long lasting power on the lid. I always go for a winged eyeliner look and this makes it so much easier and quicker to apply!

Bobbi Brown 'Tawny' Blush - I've had this blush for ages now but particularly over the last few weeks I have been reaching for it a lot. It's a warm pinky brown colour with a matte finish and gives a nice flush to the cheeks. You do have to be careful applying it because it's very pigmented and a little goes a long way - I always like to tap a bit off on my hand before I apply it. It looks great paired with my other favourite MAC Soar lip liner.
