May Love: Beauty Favorites + More5:00:00 PM
May is one of my favorite months because the weather starts to warm up and I get to pull out my sun dresses and sunglasses. My makeup routine also changes drastically. I love to wear pink, coral and orange lips during this time of year and I also wear alot less eyeshadow and foundation. I live in New Orleans and the humidity is unreal so I have to tone down my look a lot. I just want shout out some of the things that I have been loving this month...
Beauty Products I Love...
Dermablend Translucent Setting Powder ($27)I love this Translucent setting Powder. I picked this up during the Ulta 28 Days of Beauty and it has never failed me. Although it can be messy, I love that it makes my under eye area flawless. I like to use the tiniest amount of this mixed with a darker setting powder for a perfect undereye highlight.
H&M Beauty Global Fusion Eyepot in Lemongrass ($6.99)I recently discovered H&M beauty and my favorite product so far is the Global Fusion Eyepot. This shade is a gorgeous green with gold duochrome. I spoke more on the formula in my H&M review, but these are absolutely amazing and at this price point is a must try.
Lorac Highlighter in Twilight ($22)I featured this item in my Spring Haul recently, but I absolutely love this highlighter. It give an awesome light bronze glow to the face. I apply this with a damp fan brush for an intense highlight, but it can also be worn more subdued and it doubles as an eyeshadow too!
Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked Blush in "Bang Bang" ($6)I picked up this blush at the beginning of the year from Ulta and decided to save it for the warmer weather. The Vivid Baked Blush is an extremely shimmery pink blush and is a little light for me, but I have been mixing this with deeper blushes and love the effect it gives. I have worn this with my everyday simple makeup look and it really compliments the skin for a radiant finish. I also love this because I don't need to wear highlighter because of the shimmer in this.
Nyx Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in "Run the World"Recently, NYX launched 12 new shades of the Liquid Suede Lipsticks and I picked up a few of them since I absolutely love the formula of these. I have a review of these as well as swatches of the other colors I have here.
Music I've been Listening too...
DrakeSo Views finally dropped this month and I couldn't be any more pleased with this LP. It definitely grew on me as on first listen I wasn't too excited about what I was hearing. I love
Child's Play and Faithful. I cannot wait for his tour in September.
Chance the RapperSo outside of Chance's Mixtape Acid Rap, I have only heard Chance on the songs of other artists. This month, I finally got to listen to his LP Coloring Book and I am so in love. Chance infuses a lot of different music types with Hip Hop and I have been playing it non stop since I got it.
What I've been wearing...
I would never describe my style as modest...I dress in business wear 5 days a week, so on the weekends I like to be free and relaxed when it comes to my wardrobe. Lately, I have been rocking a lot of body suits. I love bodysuits because they are really comfortable and I don't have to worry about my shirt moving around under my skirt or in jeans. I love simple tank bodysuits like the one in the photo below that I picked up at boohoo.com for under $10
Sunglasses are a must have for the summer. May in New Orleans was humid and super sunny, so sunnies are a nonnegotiable. I picked up a few from a trade show that I absolutely love. I did a little research and I also found both of these on Ebay just in case anyone likes them just search Oversized Sunglasses.
