May Favorites

Hey Guys,

Its that time of the month again…May Beauty Favorites.

May_Beauty_FavoritesSummer has finally hit Copenhagen so I’ve been wearing a little less makeup but I do have some staple favorites and a few new ones that I’m obsessed with and cant live without 😀 Lets just get in to it…

IMG_2799Now that the sun is shinning and I had a hot sunny Holiday in Dubai I’ve been Wearing Josie Maran Argan Moisturizing Serum Foundation. Its really great because adapts to your skin tone so it’s perfect for summer months and sunny holidays when your skin color changes. Its light wearing and really moisturizing and really great for those with dry skin and looking for a light coverage.

I’ve also been pairing it with my Mac Prep and Prime in Radiance as a highlight/concealer for my under eye area. It instantly gives my face the fresh brightness it needs early in the morning.

For my lips I’ve basically only been using my new Revlon Lip Butters, I got in my trade with Lola’s Charms, especially the shade in Sweet Tarte. Its the perfect, every day, easy to wear pink. Plus its super moisturizing and so comfortable to wear on the lips. I will have a review and swatches up soon on some of the shades I picked up in Dubai.

I’ve also been obsessed with OPI Which is Witch. I also got this one in my swap with Lola’s Charms. Its a super fun glitter top coat that looks good over any color to add a little glam to your nails.

May_Beauty_Favorites_PowderSurprise, Surprise, Benefit Hoola Bronzer and TheBalm Mary-Lou Minizer win again for most awesome awesomeness!!! You get what I mean, right? They are booth super pigmented, creamy and really perk up the complexion. I’ve also been reaching for my Tarte Amazonian Clay 12- Hour Blushes. I really love the texture of these bad boys. They really blend in so beautifully into the skin. I’ve been rocking the shade Dollface, It’s a really pretty dusty rose.

May_Beauty_Favorites_SigmaBrushesI recently posted on my instagram a little pre birthday haul for myself. One of the items was the Sigma Mrs. Bunny Collection Brush Set. OMG….AMA-ZING!!! All the brushes in the kit are amazing. Super soft and really versatile. But I’m really really enjoying the F40 Large Angled Contour brush for my blush and the F30 Large Powder brush for setting my make up or blending out contour and blush. I’m definitely interested in getting more. I’m heading to IMATS in London in just a few weeks so hopefully I can grab some there…otherwise I’m making a trip to Ulta when I’m in Cali later this summer.

LimeCrime_DAntoinette_PaletteAnd lastly I’ve really been gravitating towards my Lime Crime Palette D’Antoinette. I just love the ethereal and soft look the create…perfect for these lovely summer days.

Well those were my favorite babies of May. I would love to hear what your favorites are, so leave a comment below.

Review: Make Up For Ever Pro Finish Multi-Use Powder Foundation

Hello make up lovers,

Sorry I’ve been a bit MIA lately but I was in lala land while on holiday in Dubai visiting my sister, nephew, and brother in law. We had an amazing time, as per usual, and of course my wonderful sister spoiled me rotten with products galore!! Everything from skin care, to eye shadow, fake tan, mascara, and even a whitening tooth kit!!! So today I thought I would share and review for you all the new-ish Make Up For Ever Pro Finish Multi-Use Powder Foundation.

MUFE_ProFinishMake Up For Ever Pro Finish Multi-Use Powder Foundation is available to my US guys and gals via Sephora or makeupforever.com and costs $36. For my Danish pals it will be available in Sephora in Copenhagen in a few months. It comes in 25 different shades and tones. The powdered foundation is housed in a sturdy, black, shiny, plastic compact. It also comes with a cosmetics sponge housed underneath the product its self.

MUFE_ProFinish_packaging

The packaging is relatively light so its great to throw in your handbag and easy to travel with. The only downside to the packaging is it gets dirty looking quickly and picks up even the slightest hint of finger print.

MUFE_ProFinish_125MUFE_ProFinish_163So my sister got sent shades 125 and 163. Luckily enough the 163 works great with my newly tanned skin. Ive been testing it out for over a week now and I love it. You can use it wet for a dewy finish or dry for a mat finish so its great for all skin types and needs. Plus its formulated with some great ingredients which hydrate and sooth the skin. The coverage on this thing is amazing. It can be sheered or built up to full coverage so its definitely has a multi-usage. You can even use it with a large powder brush to lightly dust and set you liquid foundation.

Over all I have pretty dry and sensitive skin and I’m not normally a fan of powdered foundation as they tend to dry me out but wow oh wow this guy did the opposite, even when I used it dry. I had flawless glowing summer skin with zero breakout. The lightweight and buildable formula really is great for all skin types.

THE VERDICT:

This wonderful product gets a 10/10 from me.

It looked flawless on the skin, was easy to use and blend. It didn’t cake up at all and looked so natural, it just soaked into my skin. I love that you can use it wet for a sheer dewy finish or dry for full coverage. Plus the shade range is amazing so I’m sure almost every guy or gal can find something!!!

Have any of you tried this product?
