May Favourites……….The Sun is Fraiche!
Time for my May favourites. It’s starting to warm up now and i usually change a few beauty items in the summer months.
La Roche-Posay Serozinc.
I only ever use this on warm days. It tightens everything up and reduces shine production on me. A lovely, inexpensive product. It’s very effective on blemished skin too. Bloggers raved about it a year ago and It’s still worth all the hype, even now.
Xen-Tan Premium Sunless Tan, Dark Intense.
I really like this tanning gel. It gives a lovely golden tan and doesn’t go patchy at all and lasts a good five days on my skin, even though i shower every day. It also has a nice vanilla scent to it. Great product.
Chanel Angled Powder/Contour Brush, Nº 2.
One of my favourite brushes because there isn’t really another one out there like it. I generally use mine for light contouring and it works a treat. Gives a soft focus, precise finish. I use it just under my cheekbones and jaw line, as well as around my forehead.
I’ve had this brush for about 4 years now and it’s still going strong, even after repeated washing. I’ve been using it a lot this month with powder bronzer’s.
La Petite Robe Eau de Toilette, Eau Fraiche.
I bought this last year when it was released and i enjoy wearing eau fraiche perfumes in the summer.
It is much lighter and sweeter than the headier, spiced black cherries of La Petite Robe Eau de Parfum, (which i love in the cooler months) and has a slight citrus edge to it, while being heavier on the floral middle notes.
Chanel Rouge Coco Lipstick, 424 Edith.
Edith is a lovely pink that is very wearable for paler skin tones like mine. I like the Rouge Coco formula because it is probably the most long wearing of all Chanel formulas in lipsticks and i like the colour intensity too.
Guerlain Maxi Shine Top Coat for Lips, 902 Reflets Étoilés.
There’s nothing i love more than wearing lip gloss in the summer, especially with shimmer. It just reflects beautifully off the sunlight.
This one is a clear gloss with pink, lilac and golden micro shimmers. It isn’t sticky or too wet. Gorgeous!
I mentioned this in my last post. I am really moving more towards Photography as a hobby, lately.
I bought a new camera because i am currently saving for a dream holiday and want to have learned how to use it effectively before i go, next year.
My beauty blog was what kick started my interest in Photography and who knows where i will go with it. Watch this space.
My favourites are short and sweet this month because i don’t want to keep repeating myself and i do use a lot of the same products hence, why they are favourites to begin with.
Take care and i will see you all soon. 😉
