We are serial beauty product buyers. Every month we go through so many products, its hard for me to keep up with what I'm using on my face in terms of make up. It must be OCD or something because we always leave Mecca with half the shop, but then again who doesn't? I wanted to make this a monthly post because I spend so much money and time looking for the best products to purchase and I always recommend products that I am using to everyone anyway so to start it off, here are my FAVOURITE beauty products for May...
My First fav has to be the Guerlain Terracotta Joli Teint foundation. This is definitely NOT a cheap foundation, you can find it in David Jones for AU$74 for 30ml BUT I have to say there is a reason I am raving on about this one! I love that you only need to use the smallest amount and that it spreads so nice and evenly and it dries almost powdery. I also LOVE that it has SPF in it. I am not a big fan of foundation I only ever wear it if I am going out out but I am confident I could use this one everyday and I would be fine to do so. Its so light, and even though it looks a little bit dark compared to my skin (I have it in the medium shade) when you apply it, it gives you the best tone! I would definitely recommend trying a little swatch because I swear by this however my sister Jaz does not like it at all, I think its because it is quite light but that is what I love so much about it! It is totally worth a try for so give this a go if you are looking for a new foundation.
My second fav of May is the Mac Soft & Gentle mineralize skinfinish illuminator. I realise now that I am so late to this party and that this has been out for a while but I am in love with this product and I wear it almost every time I go out now. I do pack it on because I love the shine but you do not need to use too much I just get so obsessed I go crazy with it. I was given this as a gift but it retails for AU$47 in Mac stores. I have been using this like crazy and I have hardly made a dent in the product so I would say it is worth purchasing.
My third favs of May are the Dermalogica Hydrablur and Redness Relief Primers. Skin care is SO important to me and if there is one thing you need to have in your make up stash it's an amazing primer. Dermalogica have TWO amazing primers and trust me when I say you need both! They apply like silk, I wear both because it does not hurt to have a lot of primer AM I RIGHT!? I apply the Hydrablur first then the redness relief on my cheeks and wherever else I have red around my face. The green colour of the redness relief really cancels out the redness on my face and because it is so thin and silky my foundation/tint or whatever I am wearing applies even better on my skin. The Hydrablur and Redness Relief primers retail for AU$56 on several online stores.
