Face Of The Day - Sparkly Smokey Bronze

This look was inspired by Tanya Burr's birthday make up video which I'm sure you have already seen, but if not you can find it here. I didn't use exactly the same products as I don't own them all but I found suitable replacements in my stash!

Misha M BB Cream
Bobbi Brown Corrector in Porcelain Peach

June Favourites

I really wanted to start doing a monthly favourites post again so here we go, these are the products I have been loving this month.

1. Misha M Perfect Cover BB Cream
I got this on ebay for about £3 and I really do love it. It has a high SPF which I need at this time of year and the coverage and finish is really nice. If you like BB creams I highly recommend checking this one out. As you can see I have almost finished the tube.
2. Nars Laguna Bronzer
This is much loved as you can see from the amount of pan showing! I treat this with care now as I know they are prone to shattering once they get to this stage. Just my perfect everyday bronzer.
3. Lush Mint Julips Lip Scrub
This is one of those products I honestly don't know how I managed without. Won't go into too much detail as I think this one deserves a review of it's own but just a really nice and reasonably priced lip scrub.
4. Figs & Rouge Balm
I think this came in either Joliebox or Glossybox, I use it as a lip balm and it does a really good job of moisturising my lips.
5. Mac Avenue Fluidline
Ever since I first tried this fluidline it has become my favourites, it's a gorgeous dark brown/almost black with shimmer. I saw this at the CCO in Portsmouth last week so will probably be getting another one soon.
6. Mac Extra Dimension shadow in Modern Pewter
This shade is absolutely beautiful and it is one that looks great on it's own so I have been reaching for this when I don't have much time to spend on my eye make up.
7. Maybelline Colossal Mascara
I ran out of my covergirl lashblast (sob) so I have gone back to using this and I do really like it. Nice volumising mascara.
8. Mac Posey Blushcreme
I much prefer using cream blushes in summer and this just gives a nice pink glow and lasts really well on my skin.
9. Mac Angel Lipstick
I resisted picking up this lipstick for years as I thought it would look awful on me but I had a back to Mac and thought why not give it a go. I actually love it and am kicking myself for not picking it up sooner, it's just a gorgeous neutral pink that pairs really well with a more dramatic eye.

So there you go, they were my June favourites. If you have done a post like this please leave me the link in the comments as I love reading them!
