2016 May Favourites


May has been both an expensive and busy month. I celebrated another year getting older which always involves going out for dinner, lunch and drinks. Sadly the celebrations are over and my bank balance definitely felt the blow but I am going to cherish the good memories I have created. June is looking to be a quieter month for me which will mean more time to brain storm blogging ideas and more importantly- sit down and actually get content out! I have missed it incredibility and I miss the time when I was churning out three posts a week. Recently life has been filled with work, being obsessed with the TV series The Blacklist and a new fitness schedule. I will post about my fitness journey this month as I truly feel passionate about it and I really feel it has changed my life in such a positive way that there is no way I will revert back to my old life of potato couching and internet surfing 24/7. In terms of make up there have been firm favourites so this post is an exciting one for me to write.


Estee Lauder bronze goddess is everything that screams summer and every year I pull this little gem out. It really is as good as everyone says it is. There are notes of coconut, sunscreen and vanilla. It is not a super strong scent so it's not overwhelming to spray on a hot day as I tend to hate anything strong scented when I'm melting in the heat. I have been carrying this around with me all month and have been spraying this as every opportunity I get as well as singing it's praises to anyone who will listen.
To follow my sun theme I have been loving the Dior Bronzer in Caramel/Toffee. Unfortunately this was part of Dior's summer range a few years ago but the DIORSKIN Nude Air tan is very similar. It is a lovely buttery powder that blends beautifully on the skin. I use a powder brush and apply on the tops of my cheek bones, along my hair line and under my jaw. I have also been applying some on my nose to really create that "I've just come back from holiday" look.


Another old classic that I love pulling out this time of the year is Essie Fiji. It is a lovely creamy pink colour. I am sad to say that my photo of this on my nails does not quite pick up the pink notes so you really do need to see this for yourself! It is girly without it being too childish. I only need to apply two coats and I have a lovely thick opaque colour.


To end my May Favourites I have been completely obsessed with this eye shadow combo. I use the Maybelline colour tattoo in On and on Bronze all over my lid with my finger as this applies the product the best in my opinion. I then get a fluffy blending brush and dip it into Snakebite from the Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette and place this dark bronze colour on the outer corners of my eyes. This makes my eyes look so bright and used in conjunction with my bronzed skin has made me do double takes when I see my make up in the mirror and think 'darn that looks good'.
