I absolutely adore this palette. It’s so versatile, fabulous quality & compact. I literally take this everywhere with me!

2. Benefit Hoola Bronzer – £23.50

Yes, it may be quite pricey for a bronzer, but trust me, I’ve had this for a year (at least). If you want to know more about this product read my review, p.s. this is the same bronzer I used to review!

3. bareMinerals Original –  £26

wpid-photogrid_1435757562999.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This bareMinerals powder foundation is amazing. It wears so well & has a decent amount of coverage, can be built up to your desired coverage! Let me know if you’d like to see a review! 🙂

4. St Tropez Gradual Tan – £14.49

I got the light/medium one, I’m naturally like a vampire! But if you’re not so pale you can go for the medium/dark shade. Want to know more about this product? Check out my first impression here.

5. Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation – £9.99

I have the shade ‘Light Vanilla’ 51. It’s the perfect shade & oh wow, my skin has never looked better. Needless to say I have used this nearly everyday since I bought it. ‘Like’ for a review! 🙂

6. Taylor Swift Enchanted Wonderstruck – £22

You all know I love Taylor, so of course I love her perfume. Well, I do own pretty much all of them (oops!). I reviewed the original Wonderstruck perfume, check that out here! Review for this will be up in the near future 🙂

7. Real Techniques Buffing Brush – £20.99 (part of the Core Collection)

If you’ve followed my blog from the beginning you’ll know I’m a huge fan of the Real Techniques brushes created by Pixiwoo! I adore this brush for foundation, it applies the product evenly & effortlessly.

Read my review here.

8. Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer in fair neutral – £17.50

wpid-photogrid_1435780144532.jpg

 

 

 

After the recommendation from Wayne Goss (GossMakeupArtist on YouTube) I took the plunge & bought this concealer. I haven’t looked back since it’s amazing. It’s so illuminating & covers pretty well too! 🙂

9. Sleek Makeup Rose Gold Blush – £4.49

wpid-photogrid_1435757431454.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For this fabulous low price these Sleek blushes are a steal. You get a massive amount of product which is highly pigmented. I think I’ll have this for the rest of my life.

So that wraps up my June favourites ☺. Let me know if you enjoy these posts, I love to hear your thoughts ♥

What have you been loving in June? ☺

Everyday Purple Smokey Eye ♥

Hi Beauties ☼

Recently I’ve been loving purple liner, yes, I’m being more adventurous with colour, hooray! 🙂 I have found having a subtle pop of purple on the eye really brings out my green eyes, which I LOVEEEE!!

wpid-20150508_125814.jpg

How to get the look…

Face

For the face I used my beloved Revlon Colourstay Foundation in Buff, I applied this using my Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. This is my favourite way to apply this foundation as it looks most natural & pretty flawless! To cover my under eye circles & any blemishes I used the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair (love this bad boy!!) To set those in place I used my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Translucent. Even though my skin is drier these days I still set my base so it stays all day! To add dimension back into the face I lightly contoured my face using my Benefit Hoola bronzer.

Eyes

To achieve a subtle purple smokey eye I started off by lining my upper & lower lashline with the Gosh Velvet Touch Eyeliner in Funky Violet. This is such a beautiful colour & compliments green eyes really well! To add a bit of smokiness to the eye I pushed the colour ‘Regal’ from my Sleek Au Naturel Palette into the upper lashline. I then used a fluffy blending brush to smoke this out, theres no technique to this, just apply a line of the shadow on your upper lashes & smoke it out towards the crease of your eye. Most of the colour should be at the base!! To finish off the eyes I added lashings of mascara.wpid-20150508_125816.jpgwpid-20150511_212241.jpgBrows

As usual I just brushed through my brows with the fabulous Benefit Gimme Brow. I love how amazing this looks in my brows, it’s so natural & defining! 🙂

Lips

For the lips I used a new product, Bourjois Rouge Edition in the shade 18 Violine Strass. I absolutely love this colour, its a pretty berry shade with a shimmer through it (not very noticable on the lips!). I can see this being my new favourite!! 😀

I hope you all like this subtle purple smokey eye as much as I do.
