May Favourites

Happy Sunday lovelies! And it's already time for my monthly favourites again! I can't believe how quickly time flies, it's insane!

Throughout the month of May, I liked quite a lot of products but only a few of them have made their way into my favourites post!

Starting off with the three skincare products I want to mention in this months' favourites post - the Jurlique Rose Moisture Plus Moisturising Lotion, the Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist and the Caudalie Vinosource Moisturizing Sorbet. All three of them have become a daily part of my skincare routine in the morning as they make a great combination for a dewy and healthy looking skin!

Another non-makeup item in this months' favourites is the Merci Handy Chérie Cherry Hand Cleansing Gel. It has a great size to fit in your handbag and smells incredible! It also leaves your hands feeling very fresh and clean and absorbs very quickly, which is just another plus and a reason for me to like this even more!

But now on to the makeup bits! First up, I want to mention the Manhattan Contouring Kit in 001 'St Tropez Glow', which I absolutely adore! It's very similar to my Rimmel Kate one, which is one of my favourites so I was almost 100% sure I would love this one as well!

Next up, there are three eye makeup items, which are both of the p2 Pump Up The Glow Eye Blur Pens and - again - the PUPA Milano Vamp! 4-Eyeshadow Palette in 003, which I still absolutely love and just have to mention again this month! It's just too gorgeous, isn't it?!

So these are all of my favourites from this month! I hope you liked reading this post as much as I liked writing it for you guys! :)

Celebrity Inspired Makeup - Selena Gomez

A while back, I came up with the idea of creating celebrity inspired makeup looks and posting them here on the blog just to see how everything would turn out and if you guys will like those posts!
Today is the day I want to you show my very first inspired look, which was created after a gorgeous photo of Selena Gomez (here)!

As these looks are just inspired by the famous example and are not meant to look exactly the same, I'm quite happy with how my version of her makeup look turned out! In reality, it looked a lot better than in the images - I never felt so pretty before! *blushes*
I really hope you like this makeup look as well and now I will just tell you which products I used and how I applied them to my face to create this!

Before applying any makeup, I used the Cosnature Detox Day Cream* and the HighDroxy Porify Solution* - this combination has been my absolute favourite ever since receiving these products in my latest Blogger Club Box! A review on each of the products will be up on the blog soon!

After having prepped my skin for the makeup, I applied the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation in the shade 100, which is a perfect match for my skin tone at the moment! I just applied that with a damp makeup sponge to receive the most natural look.
For this makeup look, I used two concealers, the Catrice Cosmetics Liquid Camouflage in 005 'Light Natural' on my nose and other spots I had and the Manhattan 3 in 1 Easy Match Concealer in 30 'Porcelain' underneath my eyes to cover those dark circles!

For my contour, bronzer and highlight I used the Rimmel Kate Sculpting & Highlighting Trio in 002 'Coral Glow', the Manhattan Natural Bronzing Powder* and my beloved Mary-Lou Manizer from theBalm in that exact order!

The eye makeup I created with the Maybelline The Nudes Palette, which had the perfect shades for this natural look! After I applied the p2 Pump Up The Glow Eye Pen in 020 'Champagne' all over my lid, I used the second to last shade from the first row of the palette and starting blending out any harsh lines from the Eye Pen to create a softer look.
After blending those two, I used the second shade in the second row of the palette and put that in the crease to darken the outer part of my eye. With that shade and a flat eyeshadow brush I also created some sort of  'wing' shape on the outer part of my eye.
Lastly, I put the fourth shade from the second row of the palette in the center of my lid and right below the lower lashline.

After all these eyeshadows, I applied a coat of the Maybelline Great Lash Mascara and added a few of the Kiss Haute Couture Single Lashes on the outer part of my lashes.

To finish the look, I then used the Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara in 03 'Soft Browny Brows' to make my brows look a bit neater. On the lips I used the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in 'London' and the Essence Shine Shine Shine Lipgloss in 01 'Behind The Scenes'.

Et voilà, we're done! Like I said before, I really liked creating this makeup look and I'm happy with how it turned out - I hope you do, too! :)

Let me know what you think about this! x
