June 2017 Faves
Good day, friend! Hope you all are having a great start to summer! June has come and gone so it’s time for another favorites post!
When Hourglass first came out with their bronzers, I wanted them so badly, but was so disappointed when I discovered how unflattering the colors were. This time around they released 2 new shades and to my excitement Nude Bronze Light was the one for me! I haven’t had luck finding the right shade of bronzer until now! This bronzer is so beautiful and can double as a nude blush. Hourglass released Brilliant Nude blush, but I think this one looks prettier. (Swatch below)
This one is another find thanks to Pony! She used the Plumpline Lip Liner in Hush Hush and Covert Affair, and it looked SO pretty. I couldn’t find Covert Affair anywhere and it has been sold out online forever, but I was able to find a mini version of Hush Hush in this trio! I just wanted the pencil, but to my surprise I really enjoyed using the lipstick and gloss! The lipstick is in the shade Naturally Daring and the gloss is in the shade Hot Toddy. Worn alone or together, these nude shades are very flattering and comfortable to wear. These have been my go to lippies for my everyday makeup looks. (Swatches below)
I used to be all about Cover Girl’s Super Sizer mascara user, but not anymore! I have short and sparse lashes, but this mascara makes them look fuller. You won’t get the same effect as wearing false lashes, but it fans them out nicely. It separates, adds volume, and doesn’t clump up. I got the waterproof version so it holds my curl all day.
This Flow Fushi Mote Liner is perfect for perfectionists. The brush tip is so fine and makes drawing sharp wings a breeze. Every time I pick up this liner I feel like I’m an artist getting ready to paint. It reminds me of Chinese/Japanese paintings and calligraphy.
I’ve been using the Flow Fushi Mote liner and the Smashbox Always On Gel liner everyday! This one keeps my lash line nice and dark until I want to remove it. I love these liners so much they have a permanent home in my vanity.
I used all the items I mentioned above in the photos below. It's a very light makeup look that I can put on when I'm in a rush and it's office appropriate. Note: these are unedited so they're as real as can be.

That’s it for June! Wishing you all a safe and happy July 4th!
