This month I have eleven products in my makeup bag, and each one has been sadly neglected with newer product stealing the spotlight.
My main makeup look this month is going to be a little bit of an understated glam. Simple natural shades but with a lot of glow and a touch of shimmer.
Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Foundation in Warm Ivory: This foundation has a very sheer coverage and a dewy finish, which is good for the summer season. I won’t lie and say that I actually like this foundation at all, I prefer something with more coverage and a less wet look, but when I spend that much on a product I’m not going to let it go to waste.
ELF Blush & Bronzing Duo St Lucia: I love the peachy blush in this duo, not so crazy about the shimmery bronzer contour shade, but I’m determined to finish it.
NYX Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator in Sunbeam: Yet another product that’s just not for me, I absolutely love the shade and the idea of this highlighter but I just can’t wrap my mind around how to use it. That being said, I’m not about to let a liquid highlighter get the better of me.
DIY Blush/Highlighter: When I was trying to depot some things last winter a few products didn’t fare very well, so I mixed to light pinks, and shimmery golds and a couple others that went together and made this multi-purpose shade. It’s a lovely glowy pink color that I’ve been using as a blush.
Colourpop Super Shock Blush in Prenup: This is a lovely light rosy colored blush, it’s so soft and has a beautiful natural finish.
Mary Kay Loose Setting Powder: I know this was in my April makeup bag, I really need to finish it so it doesn’t end up in Junes makeup bag.
W7 Beat It! Eyeshadow Palette: This palette is perfect for me, it’s all neutral shades, and there soft and pigmented.
L’Oreal Eyeshadows in Iced Latte/ Eternal Sunshine: I have four of these shadows and they are all gorgeous. they are amazingly pigmented
Maybelline Color Tatoo Crayon in Bronze Truffle: I haven’t used this half as much as I thought I would. It’s a lovely glowy coppery bronze shade and its super long lasting, I don’t know about twenty-four hours but it’s still really great.
Ulta Beauty Amped Lashes Mascara: I still haven’t made up my mind about this mascara yet, it’s a good one for a natural eye makeup look because it adds a little definition and length.
Clinique Lipstick in Sugar Plum Pop: I’m a big fan of the ‘my lips but better’ type of lipstick and this one is defiantly one of those. It’s a beautiful sheer slightly shiny pink and feels moisturizing and comfortable.
That’s the rundown on what’s in my May makeup bag.
I’m hoping to have a post up soon on a makeup look using most of these products, so you’ll get to see what they actually look on.
What products do you need to get more use out of?
