June, where did you go? I know, I say it all the time but it seems like an hour ago I was re planting my Christmas tree in the Peak District. This edition of monthly favourites is mainly about new discoveries, summertime essentials and products from across the pond.
The fast tan: It was about time St Moriz upped their tanning game and brought us long time brand lovers something new. I was super excited to try the 'Fast self tan' as I am that gal who has last minute plans and never a golden glow to go with them. The non drying mousse develops in one hour for a light tan, three hours for a medium glow and if you're brave like me - all night for a super bronzed body.
The natural lashes: In the summer when I find it difficult to make my eye make-up stay put and that includes mascara which usually ends up smudging down my cheeks. I have recently been opting for a light lashing of the Physicians Formula 'Lash boost mascara' a light and build-able mascara that stays put all day long without looking 'too much.'
The bright lippy: I saw the vlogger 'SunbeamsJess' wearing 'Heroine' by Mac and I knew that I had to have it. The way the beautiful, punchy purple sits against light eyes and paler skin is sort of goth sexy. The matte finish is comfortable without being too drying - think 'Ruby woo.' I will be talking all about the other reasons why I love this lippy next week if you fancy a read.
The versatile palette: Nude, matte eyeshadows are my thing at the moment. I love the wear they can be blended without being too much or too little. I have recently been using the 'In the City' palette from w7 a gorgeous combo of nude shadows and an absolute dupe for the Urban Decay 'Naked basics' palette.
The light coverage: Tinted moisturiser was always a beauty product that was something my Mum used, never full coverage enough for my hormonal skin. In the warmer months I have been reaching for the dewy, moisturising formula from ESPA to give my skin a breather.
The multi purpose palette: My Aunt introduced me to the Physicians Formula 'Warm Nude' palette a multi use selection of shades for the cheeks and eyes. I love swirling my face brush in the shades to produce a sunkissed, dewy glow.
