Double post today because I am lazy haha. I had a super busy evening yesterday and so wasn’t able to put up my WIWW post, however I’m sure you will forgive me…
First up, here was yesterday’s outfit.
I was feeling pretty casual yesterday; to be honest, I’ve been feeling pretty casual all week. It’s been so hot and we’re almost at the end of the school term, so I’ve been favouring comfort and fun over bothering about ‘dressing up’ for work. The t-shirt is from Primark, who are ON THE MONEY with their pop culture t-shirts at the moment. I almost bought another Harry Potter top at the weekend, but decided morally I could not do it; it was a Slythering House Crest top, and I’m a Hufflepuff, so debated it for a while. Even my mum said ‘no, you’re not Slytherin, you can’t buy that’! I love this top, it’s so comfortable and easy to wear.
The casual, easiness spilled over into my makeup as well. I’ve been having a bit of a problem with visible pores and awkward foundation (not blending properly, caking a little) so I’ve been back to applying with my fingers while I work out what’s gawn on. I used my SuperStay Better Skin foundation and Rimmel Stay Matte powder which seemed to work okay so the investigation continues! My lipstick of choice was MAC Myth and I must quickly mention my new love for the Soap & Glory Kickass concealer crayon; it’s so creamy, easy to blend, just a dream! I’d include it in my favourites but I’ve only had it a week, so expect to see it in my July faves…
As for eyes, I really couldn’t be bothered to do much else than blend an eyeshadow all over my lids with a big, fluffy brush. It’s all I’ve been doing this week, rotating between Urban Decay’s Easy Baked and MAC’s Sable, both shades are perfect for doing just this.
So here are my June favourites. They are all makeup favourites, which I do apologize for but I’ve been loving these products and just couldn’t cut the list down any more than this, so to save you a never ending list I decided to go just makeup.
First things first- yes, the BrowDrama is in here again. But I don’t think it would be an exaggeration to state that I wear this every single day. If I wear makeup, I will wear this. It’s amazing, with or without a brow pencil. I’ve got two Soap & Glory products as well, the Show Good Face 2-in-1 Skin Energizing Foundation and Primer (mouthful!) in the shade The Fairest of Them All and the It’s About Prime eyeshadow ‘underbase’ in Bright Light. The foundation is the perfect foundation for warmer days, a good match and blends in beautiful whether I use my fingers or a brush. It’s pretty sheer but still evens out my skin and does what I’d want a foundation to do, so I’ve been loving it. And the only way I can describe the eyeshadow primer is glue for my eyes. It’s amazing. Then I have the Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm in Smoothing Cherry. I have four of these, all picked up from Poundland and I like them all but this was the one to hand when I took the photos haha. I wasn’t particularly enamoured at first but as I’ve continued to use them I have fallen in love with the way they make my lips feel, and the SMELL is gorgeous. Last on the top line is the Urban Decay 24/7 Velvet Glide-On Eye Pencil in Black Velvet; payday purchase last month and worth every penny. Perfect for a subtle smoke along my lower lashline or dramatic, full on liner. The bottom row contains two products, a primer and a shadow. The MUA Matte Perfect primer has possibly overtaken the MUA Undress Your Skin Flawless Primer as my favourite primer. I made the switch when my pores started rearing their ugly heads and opening more than they ever have- think it’s the heat?- and decided I needed to try a different primer. I’d heard this one is a dupe for Porefessional and it’s brilliant, works a treat. My final favourite for June is Urban Decay Easy Baked eyeshadow. It’s the perfect shade for just blending onto the lid by itself or as part of a more natural eye, and goes really well with Sable or Club by MAC.
