May Favourites

 It’s officially the half way mark in the year, which truthfully blows my mind. Where does time go? Philosophical answers aside we are here to talk makeup! This brings me to my next point, if I had to pick a theme for this month it would be along the lines of lazy-girl, yet refined makeup. I’m not sure if we beauty girls are allowed to admit this but, this month I’m all for looking pulled together but with the least amount of effort. So with a handful of easy to use products here are my May favourites.

Diorskin Nude BB Cream
I’ve tried BB creams in the past and never really got along with any particular brand. Dior’s BB cream is different it’s light enough for my fair skin and packs a decent amount of coverage too.  I also love that you can apply this BB Cream with your fingers yet still get a beautiful finish.
If you were looking for a foundation-y product that is light weight, sheer and just generally very easy to use give Diorskin Nude BB Cream a try!
I have a whole review here.

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Sugar Frost
In my mind nothing was going to beat the By Terry Ombre Blackstar’s. Yes, I was totally stubborn about the issue and refused to try anything new for years. I am getting off topic here, but what I am getting to is the Caviar Sticks are downright amazing. Just like the Blackstar’s they don’t crease, they are easy to blend and they last all day.  The colour Sugar Frost is an easy one swipe wonder that gives the eyes a slight champagne shimmer but doesn’t look over done (or too frosty).  Excellent product and one I’m sure I will be using every day for months to come. 

Bourjois Silk Edition Powder
I freaking love this powder, so much I had to include it into my favourites this month again. You could wear this powder alone for a natural finish. However I love wearing this over my Dior BB Cream. Not only does it increase the longevity of the BB, but it also adds slightly more coverage.  

Avene Cold Cream
I don’t use Cold Cream every day, but this month was a true testament of why I always keep a tube around.  Sometime around Mother’s Day I started getting really dry, scaly patches on my forehead. I have to say this was one weird occurrence because I don’t tend to have eczema in the summer. After using cold cream for a week  my dry patches were magically gone… Yes you heard me right completely gone! If you are prone to dry skin or eczema having this in your stash is a life saver.
 I did a review way back when here should you want to read more about this miracle product.   

Tata Harper Regenerating Cleanser
After using this product for 3 weeks a can now safely say I am in love! Despite less skincare products this month, this gentle exfoliator has my skin looking better than it’s ever looked before. I don’t want to say too much because this is a product that deserves a review of its own. However I will leave you with this … the Regenerating Cleanser is absolutely incredible.

Lazy makeup to lazy skincare this is my May favourites.
