Monthly favourite used to be my least favourite posts to both write and read but over time I have gradually started to enjoy them more, and seeing as I have been away for just over a month, what better way to kick things off than with Beauty Loves for May and June. 

As it's been exam season I haven't had the opportunity to try many new products but on the days I had exams I would reach for some concealer for under my eyes (hide the fact that I hadn't had much sleep) and to cover any stress spots. Collection's Lasting Perfection Concealer has been my best friend and hides anything you don't want to be seen. Due to it's high coverage and consistency it does have the tendency to build up in certain areas but I find the best way to avoid this is to make sure you blend really well and set with a light dusting of powder. 

Another concealer I have been alternating using is the Rimmel Lasting Finish Concealer. This is another high coverage concealer, can you tell my skin hasn't been that great recently? After experimenting with this many times, I find the best way to apply is to pick up the product with your brush from the pan and then apply to the area. I like to use this as a second layer on certain spots which I am finding difficult to cover. I have found that it doesn't work very well under my eyes but that's just my personal preference. 

On days where I felt like wearing more make-up, I have been using my Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette for a neutral and simple eyeshadow look. I go in phases with using this and every time I pick it back up again to use it I realise what a great palette it is. It may only contain a few simple colours but I find that you can easily create a wearable look for everyday easily with them in only a few minutes. My favourite shade is Naked 2, a muted warm brown which I sweep across the lid with a hint of Faint in the crease and Venus in the inner corner of my eye.

I get quite nervous when going into school for an exam and I found the best way to calm me down was to wear some of my favourite perfume. I would definitely recommend this technique if you are an anxious person like me and are need of a little bit of reassurance when entering the exam hall. I received the Prada Candy Eau de Toilette for my birthday and I have fallen in love with it. Usually when I sat in the exam hall apprehensive about what the paper in front of me may contain smelling a hint of the perfume on my shirt calmed me down. 

I also received the Bobbi Brown Sheer Powder brush for my birthday and I cannot explain how much I love it. Despite the fact that it does have the tendency to shed hairs on my face every once in a while, it is the perfect brush for powder, blush, highlighter and contouring. I find that it picks up just enough product and blends everything easily together.

What products have you been loving during May and June?

    1. I really want to get my hands on the Naked 2 Basics but I'm holding off until I actually have a place for it in my collection haha. The Bobbi Brown Sheer Powder brush is fantastic, I don't know how I did my makeup without it before I got it!

  2. If I was going to buy a naked palette I would buy the basics, its so simple and contains every things you need. lovely post

    1. Thank you Nicole! Yes the Naked Basics Palette is very simple but contains just what you need for an everyday eye and not too expensive either!
