May Makeup Favourites

May Makeup Favourites

I’m always so late at uploading my monthly favourites, whoops! it is only the 3rd June so it still counts hehe, But I just want to share a couple of my beauty favourites for the month of may. It isn’t as much as last month as to be honest I’ve mostly been using and loving the same stuff apart from these bits I’m going to mention.

I actually still cant believe its June already and it doesn’t even feel like it, where I am we have no sun at all!! so depressing it feels like winter, but even though the weather isn’t nice I’m still in summer mode with my makeup. I’m starting to use more dewy/Luminous foundation and highlighters.

Most of these products I’m going to mention I’ve done previous posts on, I will link them if you fancy a read.

first up we have the sleek solstice Highlighter Palette

may faves2

Since I purchased this palette I’ve been using it non stop all month, I’m loving it, its such an amazing drug store highlighter. I wont go into to much detail as I have done a post here about it with swatches etc. But Its a must have I would really recommend this as its so versatile.


Benefit watt’s up

may faves8

I’ve had this highlighter for ages and I missed placed it, but recently I found it again and have been using it ever since, Its such a popular highlighter by benefit and is loved by many and I can see why.  Its a cream to powder highlighter and the packaging alone is gorgeous, its a champagne shade not to gold which I love as I have so many golds, this is quite unique in my highlighter collection. This is definitely a highlighter I use more in summer.

BECCA cosmetics Backlight filter primer & aqua luminous foundation

may faves9

I think I’ve talked about these non stop since I got them but these are still my favourite combo lately, the back light primer is stunning, gives a luminous glow on the skin and can be worn alone or under foundation, and the foundation is a light-medium coverage although I think its more medium, it gives a lovely dewy finish without being greasy or wet looking. I feel like the longer this foundation is on the nicer it looks, If you love dewy or luminous skin in the summer months I would suggest these 2 products to achieve that, these are the perfect duo. I have done a little post on the foundation here and I will also be doing a separate post on the backlight primer so keep an eye out.

H&M brown sugar blush

may faves12

I mentioned about this blush In my H&M beauty haul post here but I’ve really been loving this shade, I’m fussy with blushes to be honest the only 3 I ever use are melba, warm soul and blushbaby from MAC so I was surprised I liked this one so much, I tend to stick to pink/mauve type blushes.  Its very pigmented and applies and blends out lovely.


Jeffree Star Cosmetics Celebrity skin

may faves5

lastly is JSC celebrity skin, I’ve literally worn this everyday since I got this from cocktail cosmetics, I had been wanting to try this for months but it was always out of stock, I’ve got a thing about brown tone nudes I just prefer them over pink nudes and this is such a gorgeous shade, depending on what lip liner you pair this with it can look different each time. Liquid lipsticks are my weakness and all I buy lately, I actually can’t remember the last time I wore a normal lipstick. some people find liquid lipsticks drying but I’m so used to them now that it doesn’t bother me. The formula of JSC is nice its very watery as you can see by the messy cap but it does last a good 3 hours on me before it stars to fade in places, that’s with eating as well and I don’t find the formula drying or uncomfortable.


That rounds up a few of my May Favourites 🙂 let me know below what you have been loving?

    I bought the Sleek highlighting palette for my sisters birthday and have been so jealous after seeing her use it! It really is amazing isn’t it!

    So jealous you managed to get Celebrity Skin, you lucky lady! So badly want this lipstick, and a few other JS ones. His colour range is beautiful!

    If you like Becca Cosmetics stuff you should definitely try out Champagne Pop. They made it with Jaclyn Hill and it is AMAZING!!

      You have to get one for yourself I love it! Best drugstore highlighters ever, I’ve got champagne pop but I don’t use it that much to be honest I need to get it out and start using it again as I do love the shade. Xo
