I know that June is well and truly done with but I thought it had been a while (approximately a month I believe) since I’ve done a good ol’ Monthly Favourites post!
There are four things in particular that I’ve been loving in June, which are mostly make up item – surprise, surprise.
After a pretty tough month with a lot going on there is one product that has saved my eye bags from turning into Tesco Bags for Life. I’ve been LOVING the Maybelline Instant Anti-Age ‘Eraser Eye’ concealer in the shade Nude. It’s a small tube of concealer with a weird puffy applicator at the top. Please note I had to turn the clicky thing around 100 times in order to get the first bit of product out but after that I was sold.
The coverage isn’t very high, BUT you don’t need it. It creates luminosity, making your eye area appear brighter and more awake, it does settle into lines a little bit but setting with a teensy bit of powder soon sorts this out. The applicator is nice as well, I tend to dab this on in an upside down triangle shape under my eyes (Thanks to Kaushal Beauty for that tip, check our her Youtube videos here!) and then blend out with a Real Techniques Contour Brush.
Next I’ve been obsessed with my most recent MAC purchase. I have been wanting this product for a very long time, it is MAC’s Soft & Gentle Mineralise Skin Finish. This may possibly be the most beautiful highlighter I have ever seen! It is pretty flashy, so if you are using this day to day then please have a gentle hand! I love using this as a brow highlight, it also makes a pretty beautiful eyeshadow so it’s a bloody versatile little pot of gold.
Next, I have been loving filling in my brows with the Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade in Ebony . This is one of those products where you have to be VERY light handed, also it helps to dab most of the product off in the lid before applying to the brows. Brushing through your brows with a spoolie first helps get the most defined brows, and I usually start at the end of the brow and slowly do gentle strokes with an angled brush like a MAC 263.
LASTLY! I have been really liking using the By Terry Ombre Blackstar (why does autocorrect put that as Backstair?!), the shade I have is called Misty Rock which has been RAVED about over tinternet. This is the most beautiful shimmery amethyst colour and it’s perfect for applying straight on the eyelid and then just blending out the edges. The glitter from this has true staying power, the consistency of the crayon is really soft and creamy so it blends LIKE A FRIVOLOUS DREAM.
