May was such an interesting month. I turned 23, I got my degree awarded and I saw my wee Buttons this month. I discovered a few things makeup wise, got to see my bestie, and visit home.
This month I have been loving podcasts, Full Coverage and Breaking Beauty are two of my personal favourites. Full Coverage is two British gals living in LA. Lindsey Kelk and Harriet Hadfield, they are hilarious and always have so many new products to discuss and also discuss real issues in beauty and consumerism! Breaking Beauty is two Canadian women who talk product and also talk with founders about how their companies came to be. Its inspiring and a great podcast for beauty lovers!
I wanted to throw in a YouTuber favourite, Melissa Alatorre. She is an amazing makeup artist and I could watch her blend out an eyeshadow all day. It is so evident that she is passionate about her craft and I love that she really knows what she is doing. I have gained so many makeup tips from her that I do everyday.
Ah, the Anastasia soft glam palette. Why is this so good? Dear me, I cannot get over the quality of these shadows. They are blendable, pigmented, beautifully and aesthetically pleasing to look at and perform. I never did get the Modern Renaissance (it is still on my palette wish list…cause that’s normal we all have one right) but when this one came out I knew it was right up my street. This is a great everyday palette, but you can do bolder looks and the shadows last all day. Big win!
Colourpop supershock shadows. I have been enjoying these a lot, I’m doing an experiment currently so haven’t been dabbling as of late but at the beginning of the month these were my shiz. Every time I wear them, particularly the shade Kathleenlights I get compliments. They have minimal creasage and are beautiful specimens of what drugstore priced makeup can be. You can’t find anything (in my opinion) comparable in any other affordable brand.
Introducing Blune. I am so excited to introduce this fun challenge. If you aren’t (which how can you not know who she is) follow Estee Lalonde on her blog and YouTube you should! She used to do Vlune back in the day on her vlog channel where she vlogged daily! I thought gee I should give myself a challenge to do that with blogging, hence the name Blune. I am only doing 27 days of content accounting for weekends and days I might be missing as well as not just posting content for the sake of content. I am so excited to do this and I think you will enjoy what I have planned!
