Five Favourite Things In The Month Of May

May favourites

| Five Favourite Things In The Month Of May! |

Another month has come to an end and for me, the month was filled with enchanting novels, an addictive tv show that left me on tenterhooks, a melt-proof base, an old makeup favourite as well as a new discovery. Without further ado, these were a few of my favourite things in the month of May....

Summer brings an abundance of humid, muggy days so wearing a base that feels lightweight is important as there's nothing worse than wearing a thick, heavy foundation whilst you're sweating buckets *insert laughing emoji* Unfortunately I'm not blessed with clear skin so a medium coverage base is a necessity for me during the warmer months. Enter the Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint; You can get a light coverage with a light layer of the product but you can also build it up to a medium coverage without it feeling heavy on the skin. 

Another Nars product that has been featured in my makeup bag a lot recently is the new Loaded Eyeshadow Palette. I'm currently working on a full review of this which *fingers crossed* will be up later in the week. Spoiler Alert: I love it! The eyeshadows are good quality, they blend well and most of the shades have good pigmentation. It has a great selection of neutral shades to create a basic eye look for both everyday wear as well as evening looks. 

Once upon a time, the Soap & Glory Brow Archery pencil used to be featured on blogs day in day out but over the last year or so the hype has died down. I used to love this pencil and it featured on my blog a lot but I haven't owned it for over a year. In May I decided to repurchase it to see if my thoughts on it had changed but I ended up loving it just as much as I did back then! Although I tend to reach for powders and gels more often as I love a strong brow, it is nice to have a pencil for lazy makeup days.

As for lifestyle things, you all know how much I love reading and if you read my recent book roundup then you'll know how excited I was for the release of A Court Of Wings & Ruin by Sarah J. Maas. I absolutely loved this book and it was definitely my favourite read of the month!

I'm weak when it comes to a good tv series and I could spend all day binge watching episodes. A tv show that stole my heart this month was The Good Wife. I had originally tried to watch it during my Leaving Cert but it was a bit too serious and complex during a time when I had to study complex enough subjects {Biology I'm lookin' at you!} so I just gave up watching it. In May, I decided to start watching it again and I'm loving it!
