The month of May was full of interesting surprises. Due to the changing weather, I found myself trying out a ton of new beauty and skin care products. There were a lot of misses, but the hits were SO worth sharing! So lets get started...
Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet
The weather during the month of May is quite temperamental here in the mountains. Therefore, I need a reliable moisturizer to keep my skin from completely drying up. This moisturizer has proven its worthiness! Not only is it super hydrating on the skin, it is also light enough to use on a daily basis. I simply apply this everyday just before my primer and it makes a huge difference in the way my skin looks and feels all day. I find this is one of the best moisturizers to use with matte foundations, as they tend to dry my skin out even more. You can find this and other Caudalie skincare products here.
Diorskin Forever Perfect Foundation
I am serious when I say, this foundation changed my life! If you’ve ever wondered if splurging on foundation is worth it, I am here to tell you…IT IS! I have literally used this every day in the month of May. It not only looks flawless on the skin, but it stays all day and doesn’t oxidize! This foundation applies best with a damp beauty blender and sets well with a light translucent powder. I have very fair skin and use the shade 014. You can pick up the Diorskin Forever Perfect Foundation and the Kat Von D Lock It Setting Powder I’ve been using at Sephora!
NARS Blush – Orgasm
Ive recently rediscovered one of my absolute favorite blushes this month. I picked this up while in the “Line of Doom” at the checkout in Sephora. I had forgotten how truly amazing NARS blushes are. Though they are extremely pigmented they always look natural on the skin. I definitely intend to pick up more shades in the near future! You can pick this or any other shade that you might like here!
Essie Nail Laquer – Chinchilly
Im already a huge fan of Essie nail polishes and this shade is just another to add to the favorites list. I wanted the perfect nude shade to use on my nails that would be perfect for everyday wear, and this is definitely the one! I have solely used this shade on my nails all month and I’ve had tons of compliments! This shade is available here.
Maybeline “The Nudes” Palette
On a recent drugstore run, I picked up this palette. It caught my eye because the shades are so beautiful. There are a nice balance of matte and shimmery shades, which is what I typically look for in a good eyeshadow palette. Each of the shades blends perfectly to make bold and everyday looks. I pair these with the Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion to create a look that lasts all day. You can find The Nudes Palette and other very similar ones at any local drugstore! You can also see my favorite eyeshadow looks by heading over to my Instagram!
That’s it for my May Beauty Favorites! Thank you all so much for checking out this post! Stay tuned for more beauty and fashion posts from me in the future and please leave comments with all your May Favorites so I can try them out!
Lots of Love!
