Monthly Favourites: June

It's really starting to feel like summer isn't it? Of course by this, the sun is shining and it's a lot hotter which means my make up and skincare routine has taken a slight turn, so here's what I've been loving during the month of June...

Estee Lauder Lash Primer
If you're after long fluttery eyelashes then this primer is the one for you. As well as conditioning the lashes and helping them grow, it adds volume and separates lashes ready for mascara. Whenever I use this I get compliments and people asking if I'm wearing falsies (which I love) but I've also noticed how much it's improving the strength and fullness of my lashes.

Soap & Glory Archery Brow Pencil
After an overdue eyebrow appointment, they're back in shape and ready to be filled in. I've run out of my trusty Hourglass eyebrow pencil so I've been reaching for this on a daily basis. I much prefer a pencil with a larger nib as my eyebrows are quite thick and with this it's just so effortless. It's not the Hourglass offering by a long stretch but for a high street bargain, it sure does do the job.

Nars Sheer Glow in Mont Blanc
I never feel properly "done" unless I have a good standing base on. Foundation is one step I would choose among any and as of late, this is the only foundation I've been reaching for. It's medium coverage and a thicker formula than most people would choose in the hot weather but I love how this wears, in the morning you've got a fuller coverage when it's cooler and as the day wears on and it wears off, working in with the skins natural oils, it becomes a lighter coverage with a real glow and for me, that just works really well.

Avene Eau Thermale Thermal Spring Water
A classic summer essential, I believe if it's hot and you need a refresh then this is something you must carry in your handbag. Like it says on the tin, it's anti-irritating and soothing so when my skin is feeling particularly hot and bothered, I spray a light mist over my skin and leave to dry. It works by refreshing my make up, cooling me down but also great for adding a bit of glow back into your skin if you're making is looking cakey.

Clarins Aquatic Treasures Summer Bronzing Compact
With the weather being hotter, it's embarrassing to say I'm literally so white I'm blue so in attempt to bronze myself up, I've been reaching for this bronzer by Clarins. It's much darker than what I'm used to so you have to go easy on it but with a little sculpting on my face and over my neck and chest this gives me a gorgeous sun kissed glow.
How was your June? What products have you been loving?
