June Favorites 2016

Happy 4th of July! I hope you are off celebrating with friends and family with good food and fireworks. Its hard to believe that June has already came and gone; but hello July!

Today, I wanted to share my favorites from June; most of which is makeup this month. In June I really found myself going back to the same makeup items numerous times so I had some CLEAR favorites this month. jlk;jl.jpg

Beauty Favorites

Gwen Stefani Urban Decay Palette

DSC_0801 (2).JPGI bought this for Christmas for myself just this past Christmas. I shared it in my January Favorites but this month I have been living it again and again. I use a good deal of the colors in the 15 shadow palette. I love to do a purple/pink eyelid with a little grey on the outer corner. I’ve pointed out my favorites below! Top Row: Bathwater and Steady / Middle Row: Baby and Serious / Bottom Row: Pop. kjv.jpg

Smashbox X-rated Mascara

It’s been a long time since I found a mascara that lengthens my lashes like this does. I am highly considering buying a full size; this is why I love Ipsy. I get to try out smaller sizes before I commit to buying. DSC_0816 (2).JPG

Maybelline Fit Me concealer

I am using the shade “fair” but I am thinking about using a lighter shade for just my under eyes to really brighten them. I recommend this concealer for a good drugstore concealer.

Makeup Revolution Iconic 3 Palette

I picked this up a while back because it looked like a good dupe for Naked 3 palette and I adore it. There are some really gorgeous shimmer shades in corals/pinks/purples. This month’s makeup has been full of this palette. The shimmery colors are great for a simple one shade on the lid look as well. Below are swatches of my favorite shades: lkj.jpg

NYX Matte bronzer

DSC_0825 (2).JPGMatte bronzer is my go-to for contouring. Because I like a shimmery blush and highlight, I do not like a shimmery bronzer. At Ulta a month or so ago I was searching for a new contour shade and picked up this gem. There’s nothing special to it-but its great! A simple powdery matte bronzer to do some contouring with. The color pay off is just enough that with a light hand it goes on perfectly. I use the shade “light.” DSC_0827 (2).JPG

Kate Spade “Be Dazzling” Iphone case

Purchased from Poshmark, I have been using this adorable case all month. It is a gold glitter silicone case with the words “Be Dazzling” and I feel like it was made just for me! I was so glad I found this on Poshmark and it was only $10 with shipping included. It has been a June must!

Zoella Beauty Makeup Bag

DSC_0796 (2).JPGMy parents bought me this adorable makeup bag for Christmas and I have been using it since. Zoella is a Youtuber who has her own beauty line and this is one of her popular bags. This fits almost all of my makeup but it is extremely snug. This makeup bag is perfect, sturdy, and super cute. I am only changing out of this one because I got an adorable new one for my birthday {Come back tomorrow to see it}. All June however, this has been my go-to makeup case.

The 5th Wave

I saw this movie for the first time this month and I have been obsessed with it all month long. I enjoyed the movie and am now reading through the book (which I am sure is much better).

What have you been loving the last month?? Let me know below. XO
