Monthly Favourites: July

July has been a brilliant month, my birthday trip to Barcelona in September is all planned and booked, I've been busy going out and seeing friends. I've got a lot to look forward to and I'm so excited. Here's to another great month and let's get onto the beauty bits...

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge
If you're debating purchasing a Beauty Blender then don't bother, I've used both and I prefer this much more. The precision tip makes getting around the eyes effortless as well as the flat edge to blend around the nose and chin, I find it works best damp and teamed with Mac Pro Longwear Concealer it's a match made in heaven.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lip Liner in Tiramisu
Basically I want Kylie Jenner lips and seeing the latest photos of her rocking a matte nude lip has got me all over this lip liner. I line my lips and blend it out giving a hint of colour to my lips but with a matte finish. The pencil is a bit chalky for my liking but it fills the gap till I get my hand on Mac Whirl lip liner.

MAC Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation
The newest foundation from MAC and an addition to their Pro Longwear family, a favourite range of mine. It's a much thicker consistency than the original Pro Longwear foundation, very similar consistency to Studio Sculpt but a better finish. I find when I use this I really need to pack my skin with some hydration beforehand, it's semi matte, medium to high coverage which is buildable and of course lasts all day. Tip: If you're unsure on the colour go get matched, I'm usually NC15-20 but the NC20 comes out more like NC15.

L'Oreal False Lash Superstar Mascara
The primer is my favourite step purely because of the brush, which is a shaped brush that covers every lash, even those hard to reach lashes in the inner corners. The fibre-rich mascara formula enhances lashes adding volume and length, and although it's a traditional bristle brush, it works wonders at separating lashes. I've used this every day since I've got it and so many people compliment me on how long and full my lashes look. The formula can transfer around the eyes during the day but it's minimal compared to other high street mascaras I've used.

By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Bronze Moon
I've written a full review of this here but lately with the weather being humid and when I've fancied rocking a smokey eye, I've reached for this as it stays put all day and the beautiful bronze compliments my blue eyes and really makes them pop. The formula is just beautiful, it's soft and creamy as well as being super pigmented.
