May is the best month to start looking glamorous for summer.

James Read Gradual Tan
I have never been a fan of self tan with the complexity of application and the endless failure stories. A lot of my friends use self tan, but the results were not too great, especially when used on the face. With a very pale complexion, I decided that self tan was not for me, until I tried the Gradual Tan by James Read... This product brings self tanning to another level. It comes in a see-through plastic bottle and it is a clear liquid.
It is infused with DHA, the active bronzing ingredient in self tanners. Against many expectations, it contains great ingredients like acne-fighting zinc, coconut oil, and hydrating rose water. After application my skin felt hydrated and ready for makeup and with every application it got darker gradually.
Cleanse your skin, spray evenly on face and neck, and wait for 2 minutes to settle, then apply makeup. Use daily until you achieve the perfect tan. This is my favourite product from this box, and I would definitely recommend getting it for the summer.

Girl Meets Brush Powder Brush
I don't know if you heard about this brand before, but it was started by celebrity makeup artist, Lynne Mills. The brushes are minimal but honestly they are great. This powder brush, is probably one of the softest brushes I own. It is quite thick which helps to spread the powder more evenly on the face. Remember to apply the powder in circular motion to distribute it well on the skin. Also this brush is great for blending in blush or bronzer, making your makeup look flawless!

Chin- up Mask Firming and Contouring Trial Pack
Since I haven't got any problems in this particular area, I've decided to try this product on my mom. Despite having aged relatively well, her chin is a bit of an issue for her. The mask has improved her appearance, smoothed down most of the fine lines and tightened the skin. Not to mention the surprisingly effective moisturising properties.
You start off by applying the slimming mask, then follow with the elastic band that goes around your head, tightening it as much as you feel comfortable with. The product combines science and beauty by making use of natural fruit extracts, vitamin E and hyaluronic acid in a lovely package which evokes your first aid kit in its red and white colour scheme. What it does is it effectively boosts your lymphatic system thus reducing fat tissue in the chin area.
Although the results are temporary, you can extend them by applying every day. After about half an hour, my mom was left delighted with a smooth, luminous complexion. Chin up!
