So, today, I have my June Favourites for you! I swear this month went by so quickly! I went from finishing my first year at Uni to working 9-5 for the rest of the summer and I can’t remember much of what happened in between! But, here are some of the things I’ve been loving during that whirlwind!
As I mentioned in my Favourite Summer Make-Up post (which you can find here), I’ve been loving Topshop’s Be My Baby lipstick paired with their Beestung lip liner. This lip liner is incredible. It literally lasts all day; even when I came to take my make-up off in the evening, it was still there! I’ve been wearing Be My Baby with it and it’s been such a lovely bright colour for the warm weather we had in the middle of June!
Another make-up favourite is the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil bronzer. For me, this was quite a pricey purchase so I’ve definitely been trying to get use out of it *justifies spending £25 on bronzer* but I’ve been really enjoying it. Whilst I’ve got some colour from the sun, my face has missed out so this product has been great in helping it catch up to the rest of my body! It’s a matte product so it’s perfect for contour but I’ve also been brushing it over the rest of my face to give a naturally tan look.
I’m really bad for biting my nails so to stop myself, I always try to have my nails painted! This month, I’ve been loving the Rimmel Kate Moss Super Gel in Soul Session. This has definitely been a love for June. I got this colour around Christmas time but when I tried it, my skin was so pale from the lack of sun that my nails ending up blending in with the colour of my skin which I didn’t like at all! I decided to try it again when we had much more sun in the UK and I loved it! It’s so subtle but quite sophisticated which I’ve been really enjoying. And I haven’t had to worry about it clashing with any outfits!
Away from make-up, I’ve got a style favourite – monochrome and red. Although it’s perhaps not the most summery look, I’ve been really loving wearing black and white and mixing in bits of red! Usually, I’ve been doing this with make-up or accessories – red sandals, red bag, red lipstick! I’ve just been loving that little pop of colour!
A TV favourite – PLL! Spoilers ahead btw! If you’ve been on Twitter at all in the last few weeks, you’ll know that the finale of Pretty Little Liars happened! I’ve been watching this show for years and the last episode was such a highlight of June. I know not everyone loved the finale but I quite liked it. To see the girls finally happy after everything that happened was such a nice way to end it! And the fact that Mona took her game back was the best ending! I will definitely be re-watching the whole series soon!
My last favourite of this month is Peonies. It’s now peony season and I’ve been seeing them popping up in the shops. I of course had to buy some! Peonies are my favourite flower and having a vase of flowers in my room just heightens my mood. It’s the small things!
So that’s it for my favourites this month! Leave a comment and let me know what you’ve been loving or if you like any of the things I mentioned!
