Beauty ¦ June Makeup

I have to say I think these monthly makeup posts are one of my favourite posts to write. I just love talking about the products that I have been loving over the past month. In May I'd been reaching for a very minimal makeup look however this month I've been wearing a little more makeup as I've had a bit more time in a morning.
Urban Decay Naked foundation - 0.5
This is still my favourite foundation and I have completely given up trying to use other bases as I just love this one to much. It's a medium coverage base with a really beautiful glowy healthy finish which looks so good on dry skin. I love this so much that I've actually ordered another one as I feel like this one is almost empty and I don't want to risk running out. On me this last so well all day and even makes it through a work day when I'm sat in a very sweaty then air conditioned then sweaty again office (Call centre workers will get me)
Urban Decay Naked concealer - Light Neutral
I love this concealer but this shade is a little too dark for me so I don't reach for it as much. I've got a little bit of a tan at the moment so I've been able to get away with wearing this shade however I definitely need to get round to purchasing Fair neutral. This concealer is very comfortable and lightweight making it the perfect summer concealer!
Bourjois Radiance reveal concealer - Light
I'm still using this under my eyes and I still really love it. For £7.99 you really can't complain, for me it's the perfect shade for under my eyes and it stays put without creasing all day. I really like it as it does a brill job of adding a bit of lightness to under my eyes and hiding my dark
Barry M Contour kit - Light/Medium
I am still loving this contour kit, as you can see I've actually hit pan on the contour shade as I pretty much wear it everyday. It's a stunning grey toned contour shade and it's a really brilliant shade for pale skin. I have actually been setting my under eyes with the matte highlight shade recently.
Benefit Hoola
I love this bronzer for a quick all over bronze. As I said I have a little bit of colour to my skin at the moment which means my foundations are quite light on me so I need a little bit of something to add some colour to my face. This is the perfect shade for adding warmth without being orange and is definitely a staple product in my collection.
Sleek Highlighting palette - Precious metals
This palette contains three really beautiful cream highlights and a powder highlight. I've been gravitating towards the white gold highlighter which adds the most stunning glow to the cheeks. It's a lot more natural than the Solstice highlighting palette also from Sleek which contains very intense shades. Although this is much more natural than the solstice palette these highlights still aren't for the faint hearted and do pack a massive punch of glow so if you are a fan of a less intense highlight I'd steer clear from these.
Milani Baked blush - Luminso
Everyone loves this blush and I can really see why, it is a beautiful peachy glowy shade which adds so much radiance to the skin. Leaving it with such a beautiful healthy glow. Using this alongside the sleek highlighters I end up with such healthy glow to my skin. I really need to get some other shades of these blushes as they are so damn beautiful.
High Definition Brow and eye palette - Foxy
I received this in my June Cohorted box and I have to say I'm a massive fan. I don't particularly like it on my eyes however on my brows I love it. I mix the middle brown shade and the black and it is the perfect shade for my brows. I am a fan of super intense brows and this really helps make them look super defined and dark. I also use the wax to set the powder on the arch of my brow as I find that is always where the colour fades first.
Benefit Gimme Brow - Medium/deep
I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this in every monthly makeup post since I started them but I love it and use it everyday. This tube is definitely on it's last legs but I'm not sure whether to repurchase or to try out another brow gel (I'd love recommendations if you have them) This just sets my brows really nicely and adds a little bit on volume.
Makeup geek eyeshadows - In the Spotlight (Foiled) and Cocoa bear.
You probably all know by now that I absolutely love my makeup geek shadows. I have Marlena (the creator of makeup geek) on snapchat and she was wearing this combo sometime during the mpnth and I immediately tried it out myself and love it. It's a super easy look making it perfect for college as I can do it in about 2 minutes. I just press In the spotlight onto my lid with a damp flat shadow brush and then blend cocoa bear into the crease with a really fluffy blending brush.
Maxfactor False lash effect mascara
I wasn't a fan of this mascara at first however now it's dried out a little I absolutely love it. It really separates the lashes and leaves them looking super long and fluttery and not clumpy at all. When I first opened it I found it was very wet so If you aren't a fan of wet mascaras this is definitely one that needs to be left to dry out.
Dose of Colours Liquid lipstick - Truffle
This shade is absolutely gorgeous, it's a browny pink nude and it looks so gorgeous on my skin tone (although it also looks amazing on basically every skin tone I've seen it on) The formula of these is so stunning and it sets down to the most stunning velvety finish. The wear time in these is also insane, I find I can get about 8 hours out of this before it begins to look really gross so I definitely love it!

So that's it for today I hope you guys enjoyed this mammoth of a post!
