JUNE 2016 FAVOURITES

Since I didn’t have many empties to share this month, I decided to shake it up a bit and write a post on some of the products I’ve been loving this month. I’m guessing I can alternate between these two types of posts every month depending on what seems more interesting. Given that I can be a creature of habit, I could be using the same stuff every month and won’t have anything to report on, so at least having the choice between monthly favourites and empties would help prevent these posts from being too monotonous. A lot of the items I’m about to write about are products that I’ve been using for months, and there’s some that are relatively new to my collection but could quickly be staples in my routine. If you’d like to learn more about my June 2016 favourites, please keep reading.

These looks typically played with lots of pastel tones, so I immediately thought to use the shade ‘Isla’ from the Anastasia Beverly Hills Self Made Palette. However, in hindsight, I wish I would’ve used a matte shade instead. This look definitely took me out of my comfort zone, and it was the first time I actually made a real attempt at a cut crease. I’ll admit, it was a little difficult given my confusing eye shape, but I think it turned out all right! Check out the video if you’re interested in seeing how I achieved the look.

Highlighters are one of the more recent additions I have introduced into my makeup routine, and I have to say, using them has really amped up my daily face. I never thought something so simple could make such a world of difference! It’s safe to say that I don’t think I will be going back to my old highlighterless ways any time soon. With that being said, I decided to showcase the highlighters that are currently in my makeup arsenal along with some mini reviews. So without further ado, let’s get started!
