Hi everybody! I really cannot believe how fast the month of May flew by! It's already the time for prom and graduations and all that jazz! I wanted to keep my "favorites" simple this month by doing a current favorites post. I don't tend to change up my routine very often I thought I would just share my current favorite beauty products for the month of May!

Urban Decay Vitamin-Infused Complexion Prep Spray
I have had this spray in my collection for quite some time now. I got a sample back in the winter when Placed an online order with Sephora and fell in love. I don't really use this as a setting spray but I use it under my moisturizer to help combat the redness on my face. I also notice it does help with oil control.

Maybelline Baby Lips
I don't think I have to say how much I love these lip balms. They are a great alternative to using a Chapstick because they smell lovely and some have a slight color tint. I have way too many in my collection and always carry them in my everyday purse to work, running errands, etc.

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder
I have also had this powder in my collection for a very long time. I use it on an almost daily basis to help control my oily skin. I use the Transparent shade because it looks nicest on my skin.

Sephora eyeshadow in Aspen Summit
I received this tiny little eyeshadow and a makeup swap and I am glad I did! It works wonders in the inner corner. It helps me look more awake in the morning when I am still sleepy! It doesn't have fallout throughout the day and the pigmentation holds if you use an eyeshadow primer.

NYX HD Eyeshadow Primer
How did I not use this primer before? This primer works better than any eyeshadow primer I have ever used, including the Urban Decay eyeshadow primer. It has a super thick formula which just holds your eyeshadow in place all day long. Plus, it's super inexpensive at the drugstore!

Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara
I just did a whole blog post explaining how much I enjoy this product, check it out here.

Aveeno ultra-calming makeup wipes
These have been  favorite makeup wipe of mine for a long time! My sister actually let me try hers and that's how I came to love them! These do a great job at taking all of your makeup off. They do not irritate my skin nor do they hurt my eyes. They are also inexpensive for makeup wipes.

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette
There is a reason why Urban Decay is so popular these days. They make some of the best makeup palettes and eyeshadows in my opinion. These matte eyeshadows just glide onto your eyelids and don't budge all day long! This palette is full of amazing natural shades that can be worn during the day or made more bold for a night out. I use it everyday and it was a great investment.
