I’m a bit late, but here is a run down of my favourites from July! There’s not many this month as I’ve been really sticking to my old favourites and really enjoying them.
I’ve been enjoying wearing a bit of bronzer recently, just to lift my complexion and make me look a bit warmer in the summer months. I have struggled in the past to find a bronzer that not only doesn’t look muddy or orange on my pale skin, but also not chalky. The Bareminerals Ready bronzer is the perfect mixture of warmth and glow, with light reflecting particles and a sheer finish. It really lifts my complexion and smells lovely to boot!
I finally got hold of the Too Faced SweetPeach palette!! Hurray!! It was totally worth the wait, though. It is jam packed with gorgeous ultra wearable shades in a mixture of mattes and metallics, that I can wear effortlessly. The powders are really finely milled and luxurious, and last all day without a hitch. Plus, the whole palette smells like peaches! What’s not to love?
I replaced my empty Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation this month with a slightly darker shade to compliment my summer skin. It’s easy to forget how incredible this foundation is, but after just one use I fell inlove all over again and it’s been a staple all month. It’s just perfect for everything. It’s medium-full coverage with a beautiful glow, but also a semi matte finish. It makes the skin look unreal, and I just cannot get enough!
NARS Orgasm blush has been a cult beauty product for years, but I never really gave into the hype until recently when I bought a travel size version because it is SO CUTE!! The blush itself is just gorgeous too. It’s a peachy pink shade with a hint of glitter adding a subtle glow to the skin. The colour is sheer and super flattering, giving a little bit of warmth and that luminosity. It’s now a makeup bag essential!
I think my love of Real Techniques blending sponge has come to a sad end. I recently bought the original Beauty Blender, and I am bowled over by how brilliant it is! There’s a reason the original is still the best, and it’s simply because it just works so well! It’s super soft, the perfect shape for full face and the little curves of under eyes and around the nose etc. I just adore it!
If you struggle with getting tangled hair at the hint of a breeze like me, do what I did and invest in a WET hairbrush. I have never used a hairbrush that’s so gentle even on the knottiest hair. It’s got a cushioned pad and soft pins to be kind to the scalp and gentle on the hair. No knots and healthier hair? Hell yes!
Finally for my beauty faves, I have the most incredible shampoo and conditioner I have ever used. No, seriously! The Yes to cucumbers combo is amazing for my flat hair as it cleans and moisturises, but it leaves no weight at all! The formula is made of 97% natural ingredients and the cucumber and mint scent is heavenly! I’ve just ordered 4 more bottles so I don’t run out.
I had to give a little mention to the ASOS forever tshirt, which I’ve basically been living in this month. They are so soft and easy to wear and the v neck shape is super flattering. I love the longer length too!
Also, how could I forget my Miss KG sandals. These beauties are just the best, and I am SO happy I bought them! Comfy, cool and trendy, these sandals are everything I’ve been looking for and more!
