Makeup of the Month | May

This month I've been all about that smokey liner. Again... I went through such a phase of not wearing liner at all and now I can't get enough of it. I've finally figured out how to do the perfect wing, whether it be smokey or not, and I'm making the most of it!

Face »
Nothing new here. I'm back to my usual base routine. Estée Lauder Double Wear, MUA Bronzer, theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer Sigma blush... blah blah blah. (Products listed at the bottom.)

Eyes »
This month I rekindled my love for the Sigma Resort Palette. Every now and then I remember I have it and it finds its way back to my makeup station. Unfortunately the palette was limited edition but don't worry, the shades are available in singles so if you fall in love with these colours like I did. 

Brows »
I have a new brow routine! It's nothing drastically different but I've switched up my products a little. Istead of using the Rimmel brow pencil I've started using one of Sigma's new brow pencils in Elevate*. (You can read my review here if you'd like!) And of course I've been setting those brow hairs in place with the Benefit Gimmie Brow in the shade Medium/Dark

Lips »
Kinda Sexy by MAC is definitely kinda sexy. I actually got this because I saw JLovesMac1 using it as a nude lipstick back when I was on my hunt for nude shades. Obviously I'm much paler than she is so I didn't think it would look very nude on me, but it still worked out and looks more coraly/peachy coloured with my skin tone. Especially when paired with similar shades on the lid.
