I know this is a way…way…way overdue post….but I am finally back! J I’m here to share with you my May Favorites. I seriously can’t believe that we’re already through half of 2012…geezz where has time gone. Anyhoo….let me get started on what I’ve been using very frequent in the month of May
A lot of my favs have been focused on lips. I’ve been loving a lot of the coral-ish shades. I haven’t been too crazy about doing my eyes given it’s the Spring/Summer season. I just wanted to stay focused on clean fresh dewy skin and a pop of color on the lips.
MAC Lipstick shade Morange
YSL Lipgloss shade #2
Maybelline Super Stay 24hr color shade Continuous Coral
As mentioned the focus of my makeup has been on fresh dewy skin; this is what I’ve been loving:
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Foundation (This foundation is amazing for being from the drug store. It seriously is almost just as good as some of my higher brand foundations. I love how my skin looks very natural and fresh, yet the coverage is still great, and the price….affordable! I’ve heard so many others in the beauty community say this is worth buying, so I had to try myself. And I agree….it’s so worth purchasing
Bobbi Brown Corrector Concealer (perfect for hiding the dark circles J)
My favorite scent of perfume that I’ve been wearing is Issey Miyake. There are a mix of notes that I can’t pin point, but lets just say it’s a subtle floral scent….but in a mature way, not the young girly stuff. I feel like a real power woman when I wear this. LOL
I have been trying this amazing skin product called Yves Saint Laurent Forever Youth Liberator Serum. It’s super expensive but I got a really nice sized sample that has been lasting for a while. A little of this does go a long way. This serum has really made a difference in my skin. It looks really healthy, glowing, smooth, almost like baby’s skin. I love it so much….I’m in heaven when I put this on all the time. I don’t know what I’ll do when I run out, so I try to use it sparingly now.
I love love love candles, and the scent I have been loving is Mandarine by Votivo. It smells so good it's like you want to eat it. LOL
This is a really short list of favs…I know, but I honestly I haven’t been wearing too much on my face because it’s starting to get into the warmer days. So because of that, I keep the face looking very much less effortless. J
I promise to get my posts back to normal schedule…I know I’ve promised before, but I will get back into the routine. Especially because I have excited events and opportunities coming up that I’d want to share. A week from tomorrow I will be headed to NYC for an opportunity of a life time. It’s Full Figured Fashion week (www.fffweek.com) so I will be there networking while also working on many many models. So I definitely will be sharing all of the colorful scenes I see, of course the beauty shopping, and some good eats as well. So please stay tune for that blog post.
Until then…..thank you for your support in viewing my rambles, I greatly appreciate it.
Have a nice day beauties! J
