May favourites & Daily make up

Hello everyone!

June has arrived and here's already summer! The weather is bloody hot out there and I am just at home, safe, with a big glass of extra cool pink lemonade! 
So yay, let's get into my May favs! :)

First thing I have been using again is my beloved Illamasqua cream blusher in Laid, which is a pretty hot pink-mauvy shade. This feels like you have nothing on the skin so it's great to use even if it's hot outside and you don't really want creamy things on. I just dab a little bit of it on and then blend and set it with some powder and it's done! I think it stays on better than the powdery ones during these hot days, maybe cause it's a lot pigmented. But here it is!

I have never been an highlighters fan since less than a year ago! Now I am obsessed with contouring, bronzers and highlighters. I do have a NARS one which I don't like (at least not for a day wearing) cause it's a lot shimmery and glittery, but since I have this one, my opinions about highlighters has completely changed. This one here is from the brand Essence and it was the limited edition for the Cinderella movie. Look at the packaging: it's bloody gorgeous! These little roses are so lovely!
The colour is amazing, just a great pink toned shade which is perfect for day time!
It just gives you the perfect amount of light to glow in the sun! Luv eet!

Theeeeen, foundation wise! I have been loooooving (after hating it during winter) the L'oreal Nude Magique eau de teint foundation in 102 pure ivory! First of all, the shade is perfect now that I have a tiny teeeeeny bit of colour on, second thing is that now that is summer the formulation of a liquid (almost watery) foundation that sets like a powder is perfect and stays on all day without any additional powder! I have been hating it during winter cause of my super dry skin but now that is summer and I have a normal to dry skin, it's perfect cause it doesn't dry that much on me but it sets well! And, also, feels like a second skin! Only down is that the coverage is not full but it's a pretty buildable medium coverage that goes well with a bit of concealer! :)

Then how could I not mention the thing I have been using the most during this month?!
Here it is: the Natural Eyes palette by my beloved Too Faced!
I don't use anything else.. I just have everything I need for a day and night natural look!
The pigmentation is amazing and I feel like I don't need other palettes as it also has colours that suit well my eyebrows! I even picked it up on the trip I did on my birthday and it didn't let me miss anything! :) Just a precious little palette! You NEED it, trust me! :)
(p.s. if you want close ups and swatches of this palette, just leave me a comment and I will happily do it!)

Fav lipglosses are these two! First one is from Tanya Burr Cosmetics in the shade Afternoon Tea. It's a lovely baby pink with an amaaaazing pigmentation and a strawberries smell! I genuinely love the whole range and I can't wait to buy more shades! Just can't wait to buy some reds and darker ones!

second one is a sample I got at the Sephora Lips Party I attended in May for the launch of these Ultra Shine Lip Gel! The formulation is so so good, it leaves a nice hint of colour and, thing I like the most, it's super moisturizing! I def need to buy more colours!

 The nail polish shade I have been non-stop wearing during May is this one from KIKO in number 372! I loove this colour so much, it's perfect even for school, it's like a lovely pink-nude that will instantly make your hands and nail look better! It's the second one I buy and I don't think I have ever finished a nail polish in my life so it says everything! 

 So these were my fav and I will leave you with a pic of what I use everyday for my daily natural make up! These are my essentials when I am on a rush in the morning!
