May Favorites

This month I thought that I would post my monthly favorites a bit earlier.. so here they are!

This is basically what I've been sporting for most of the month! Just some foundation and powder, mascara, a light wash of color on the lids, and a blush/highlight in one. I've been keeping it pretty natural for the face and eyes but then I usually add a bright lip (I'll show you my top picks for the month in a moment!) for a pop.

I've been using Maybelline's FIT Me foundation a lot lately, and I'm remembering why it's one of my favorite foundations! It's very lightweight and does a nice job of evening out the skin. I wouldn't recommend it if you have very oily skin, though, as it has a dewy finish. Anyway, on top of that I've been adding a light application of this Clinique Perfectly Real Compact Makeup. This is something I probably would have never bought myself (and I never go for powder foundations, anyway) but my mom volunteered doing hair at a gala and recieved it in a gift basket. It was my shade so she passed it onto me and I like it more then I thought I would!

For my eyes, Benefit's Badgal Lash mascara is a favorite for the second month in a row! Like I said, I've been going for a more natural look on the face and eyes and I think this mascara is wonderful for that! Along with that I've been wearing and really loving Maybelline's Color Tattoo Metal in Barely Branded. Perfect shadow to swipe on and go!

MAC's Pearlmatte in Flatter Me has been my favorite product to use for adding color and a glow to my face. It's two in one! I haven't used it in a while but I'm glad that I've stated to again! It's beautiful!

To finish up, here are my top picks of the month for a bright lip:

 From left to right is Revlon's Lip Butter in Lollipop, Maybelline's Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick in Vivid Rose, Maybelline's Color Sensational Vivids Lipstick in Vibrant Mandarin, and Revlon's Lip Butter in Sweet Tart.

As you can see I've been digging the Lip Butters and Vivids Lipsticks! I love Lip Buttes and they've been monthly favorites a handful of times! And the Vivids are fantastic and obviously are also great spring shades. I definitely recommend them if you're looking for a very bright and bold lip for cheap!

So, these products pretty much make up my go-to face for spring! What does your go-to spring face consist of? :)


  1. I've been looking to try the Color Tattoo range! Is Barely Branded really similar to Benefit's RSVP? I'm looking for a dupe for when I run out of mine :)

    1. The Color Tattoos are fantastic! Barely Branded is lighter and more of a beige while RSVP looks warmer and more like a champagne-y beige, though. Compared to Barely Branded it almost looks like a light bronze.
