May, the last month of Spring is finally here and that means warmer brighter days! It’s time to change or just switch a few basic products in my makeup collection, with lighter, softer shades and formulas. From base to concealer and from eyeshadows to lipsticks, everything has to leave my face fresh and natural.
Cushion compact foundation can easily take the place of my liquid foundation. This magic cushion foundation gives a light-medium coverage, as I don’t need a full heavy coverage when the heat is up and May it’s actually a hot month in my country. With the soft sponge applicator, I can have the desirable coverage as the product is quite buildable and the finish is matte yet dewy and satin. Although I have normal to dry skin, it works well for my skin type without settling into fine lines around my eyes. Plus, I don’t need to use any powder which makes my makeup really really light and fresh.
The same lighter formula I need for my concealer also and this one from Bourjois is very light as I want it to be and works really great for my skin. It’s creamy soft and blends quickly. Covers dark circles and any redness (and around my nose) while conceals and brightens the under eye area. It lasts quite long without creasing at all and gives a natural, radiant healthy finish.
I have already mentioned how much I like multi-purpose products and how I love this all-in-one palette from Golden Rose. Having a palette of shades suitable for any skin type, for contouring and highlighting and an additional blush shade, makes my makeup process easy as pie and effortless. And when the weather gets warmer and hotter all I want is less time and simple steps to complete my makeup. The darker shade for contour is perfect to be used as a bronzer also, while the highlighter looks gorgeous on the eyes as well.
Liquid eyeshadows are so easy to apply and when they are build-able like this one, I like using them day or night. With only one swipe I get a bold and bright color as it has a great pigmentation and while the shade is a little bit shimmery, it’s also build-able so the final look is subtle yet radiant, perfect for everyday use. I have the shade Icicle Rose, a wonderful pink color that I love wearing it on its own.
I can’t stop wearing liquid lipsticks no matter what the season is, and from time to time I go back to one of my favorites, the Kiss Proof Lip Creme lipstick in shade Incognito. It’s a moisturizing lipstick with a matte finish, but besides that, its creamy formula hydrates and also helps not to dry my lips. It is long lasting also and doesn’t transfer at all. As for the shade, a nude pink, it’s versatile, wearable and easy to combine with any makeup tone.
