May Favorites

I have been sporting Short Human Hair Wigs.
They are no fuss, tangle free and give me the edgy looks that I prefer.
I gravitated more towards my Beshe HH Vega shorty do. Love it!

For my face, I have been using my Microfiber Washcloths daily. The Neutrogena Naturals line was my most used product for this Month. With the increase in temperatures, I am finding I do not need to moisturize overnight daily. Every other night works best for me. For my body, I have been using and loving the St. Ives Deep Restoring 24 Hr. Moisturizing Lotion. I am disappointed because when I read the ingredient list, I found parabens. My Holy Grail Moisturizer is Korres Body Butter! It's very pricey though. I am still on the hunt for a drugstore alternative.

I have been working to perfect the application of the MAC MatchMaster. I don't like to be defeated by anything. I also hate wasting money. My investment just has to pay off. I have been experimenting with different application methods...fingers, damp brush, damp sponge, less product. I think I finally settled on mixing the 7.0 with the 7.5 for the best results. It does last all day, but I am concerned that the effect looks like foundation. That typically is not the result I'm looking for. Although I reached for this foundation most often, my favorite remains the NARS Sheer Glow in MACAO.

I have been wearing very little eyeshadow if any for this month.
It seems quicker to get out of the house in a hurry with just Wet N Wild H20 Liquid Liner
and Urban Decay 24/7 Zero.
If I wanted a pop of color, I opted for a L'Oreal HIP Crayon set with matching eyeshadow.

I have been loving Orange and Coral Cheeks.
I reached for MAC Ripe Peach, Milani MAI TAI, NARS Exhibit A and Taj Mahal most of all.

I have been loving all things Orange, and Coral.
I sported
Revlon Siren, MUFE #40, and MAC So Chaud along with MAC Morange Lip Gloss.

My go to earrings this month have been from a seller on etsy named Angel.
Her store is called LoveliiYou
I purchased three pairs of her fabric stud earrings. I find them to be simple and classy. They have been the perfect accent to complete my outfits. I plan on making more purchases. Look for a full review as well as a collection post in June.

Did you have some of the same favorites in May as I did?

 Regular followers of my blog know it's no secret that green is one of my favorite colors.
I decided to go matchy matchy and coordinate my eyeshadow with my ENAMEL GREEN tshirt.
I was on my way to work. Our dress code is casual.
Colored eyeshadow is acceptable.
I have been struggling to get my MAC MatchMaster foundation to work. At first, I loved it. I have been finding that the 7.5 alone is oxidizing on me after a few hours of wear.
This pic on the left is looking a little ashy because of the SPF in the foundation.
