June Favourites

Welcome back to another monthly favourites blog post. June has been such a good month for me. I went on holiday with my boyfriend and we had such an amazing time. It was such a relief to just get away from work and have a week where we can focus on ourselves.

The minute that we left the house for the airport we turned the internet off on our phone and it wasn’t allowed back on until we were home. It was refreshing and I think I need some time away from the interest every month, maybe not a whole week but at least a few days. Anyway, here are my 10 monthly favourites from June…

Huda Beauty Lashes in Scarlett

I always used to say that I would never buy expensive eyelashes because I didn’t see the point in them. But I saw these in Harrods and I loved them so I had to get some. I am now eating my own words because I am obsessed with them. Huda Beauty lashes are so high quality; I literally cannot get enough of them. Major dent in my savings, but worth every penny.

YSL Le Teint Touché Éclat Foundation

I ran out of my original Touché Éclat Foundation so I bought this one as a replacement. It has a new formula and I have been loving it. This still has that incredible smell that the original one had and the way it glides on the face is amazing. The original was right up there on my list of favourite foundations and now this one has taken its place.

RCMA No Colour Powder

I had one of these years ago when I was freelancing but I never really used it on myself, so I thought I would repurchase one to see how it is. I love this for baking. I cannot bring myself to pack on and waste so much of my Laura Mercier powder so this low cost powder is amazing for it. You get so much in the tub and when I bake with this it makes the face look flawless.

Ardell Double Wispies

As I may have mentioned in a previous eyelash post, I love long and thick lashes. My natural ones are pathetic so I rely on these. This is the first time I have used the double Wispies. I love them! For a more dramatic lash they are a perfect low cost solution, they are also super comfortable to wear!

St Tropez Dark

As I mentioned I am just back of holiday so I need to prolong my tan. I tan naturally really easily and it goes a deep olive colour I just wish that it could last forever. As well as moisturising after my shower I go in with some of this stuff. This matches my natural colouring really well because when you wash off the outer layer you are left with a natural tan.

Illamasqua Blush Brush

I got this brush in part of my kit a few years ago now and I never really used it. This was just something that sat there gathering dust. Then when I was on holiday I needed to blend out my contour and I was far too lazy to go and wet my Beauty Blender so I grabbed this brush and it worked a dream. I use this in small circular motions and it makes everything really seamless and blended perfectly.

Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Perfume

This scent is incredible. I always struggle to describe fragrances so let’s give this ago. It is a really deep and rich scent. This wears so differently to how it smells if you just spray some into the lid and smell it. It is a perfect summer scent because it has a fruity undertone and a real musk to it.

Kat Von D Lock It Concealer

Even though I had a lovely relaxing holiday I also drank too much and didn’t sleep much because we were awake all night having fun. So, no surprise that I have so much darkness under my eyes it is unreal. I put this on under my eyes using a concealer brush and then press it in using my Beauty Blender. It blends out and covers absolutely everything that needs to be. When my darkness is a little extreme, this is the concealer that I go to grab.

Chanel Bronze Universal

I have owned this for so long and it is still going strong. I have hit pan on it now but I can still see it lasting for ages longer. I use this as a medium to blend out my contour. I apply my contour shade to my face, take my Illamasqua Blusher Brush and dip it very lightly in this Chanel Cream Bronzer and then I buff out my contour. The creamy texture just helps to blend in the contour without moving the foundation below. A must has for any makeup junkie like myself”

Denman Brush

As I mentioned in one of my previous posts I have had pre-bonded hair extensions done. I absolutely love them and I cannot imagine not having them anymore. But they do take some looking after. To stop them from knotting this brush is the best. It has nice soft bristles that glide over the bonds of my hair extensions without ruining them.

That is my favourites for this month completed. I would love to hear from you about whether you’ve tried any of these things and what your favourites have been for June. So, leave me a comment below or drop me an email and I would be more than happy to get back to you!
