Beauty products i’ve been loving in the month of June…
S K I N: I am really enjoying using lighter products on my skin at the moment, gone are the days whereby I would blur out my features (A term nicely put by Wendy Rowe in her ‘In the bathroom interview with Sali Hughes) with a heavy coverage mousse foundation, Dream Matte Mousse anyone? I have been using the medium variant Clean + Clear ‘Hint of tint’ pretty much everyday this month and have really been enjoying the light texture with a hint of glow. I just top it up with some mascara and bronzer to create a fresh everyday look.
L I P S: I’m not ashamed to tell you that I acquired the super lush ‘No Competition’ lippy by Benefit at a Kings College ball I attended years ago when a girl gave it to me because ‘it looked better with my dress than hers.’ Ever since then, the plummy hues of ‘No Competition’ have been my go to choice when I want to make a statement with my lips and go for a vampy make-up look. The formula is super comfortable to wear, almost too creamy on the lips, it can get a little messy if you don’t blot.
E Y E S: In the August edition of ‘Red Magazine’ we were treated to a Rodial ‘Smokey Eye Pen’ eyeliner duo in black and brown. To me, this is the best freebie i’ve ever seen stuck on the front of a magazine as these eyeliners are absolutely incredible, super creamy and pigmented and are perfect for smudging out for that classic Bardot bedroom eye look.
N A I L S: When it comes to the time of year whereby it’s acceptable (ish) to get out my horrendous feet, I like to make them look at least somewhat presentable with a pop of colourful nail varnish. The same goes for my fingernails i’m a natural biter but I go through phases of growing them when my mental psyche is healthy. I have been loving the Collection 60 Second ‘Hot Looks’ polish in ’65 Scorched’ it is a gorgeous burnt orange shade with flecks of gold. A real summery shade.
B R O W S: If you read my post on my experience with High Definition brows you’ll have seen me briefly touching upon the ‘Brow Color Fix’ in the shade ‘Vamp’ – a brow fixer that distributes colour through your brows whilst keeping them set. It is a little messy but I tend to pop a smudge of the product on the back of my hand before setting my brows with the spooley to avoid any excess product clumping.
