June has been a bit of an odd month for make up. As it's been so hot for a good portion of the month I have been struggling to put on anything but the bare minimum. As you know I have been favouring concealer instead of foundation too, so my MAC Studio Finish and Moisturecover definitely rank as favourites of this month.
In terms of eyeshadow there are a couple that I've used a lot. I've enjoyed wearing Rouge Bunny Rouge Solstice Halycon applied to the lid with just a black liner and mascara. It's a quick and easy look and has been perfect for the warm days. Another favourite has been MAC Vex and Satellite dreams, as I mentioned in this post. I've worn this combination quite a few times now and I love the bright flash of colour it adds.
My Illamasqua Rude blush has seen a lot of use this month. This as well as the Solstice Halcyon has been stored in my grab and go make up bag. If you've ever read my Applying make up with 3 children post you'll know why I need this! I picked up MAC Well Dressed blush at Swindon CCO a few weeks ago. This has also become a new favourite. I'm so pleased with how this looks as I thought it might be too light for me but it gives a cool look to my cheeks that I love. Lipsticks that I have been using a lot this month are MAC Up the Amp, Cosmo and Laura Mercier Pink Cocoa. I have been favouring a stronger lip colour quite a bit, it's so much easier to add colour that way when you're in a rush. Plus, it's more forgiving in the hot weather than a complicated eye look.
An unusual favourite I'd like to mention is the MAC 239 brush. I love this brush and kick myself for not having invested sooner. I like it so much that I bought a second from Happy1234 It really is a great brush for packing colour on the lid! As I've been wearing a single colour on the lid so much, it's been great having two to save me constantly washing brushes. Lazy, me? Never!
Have you been loving anything this month? Has the weather effected your make up routine?
