Just a handful of favourites..

It seems crazy that we are in the month of June already, it seems a minute since it was Christmas! This is just a small post about a couple of products I have been enjoying over the past few weeks. 

I have quite a love affair with illuminators, highlighters and bronzers, especially in the warmer months when dewy skin is more breathable. I have (wait for it) been giving powder a break and have wanted to try using just bases with creams or gels. The NYX Born To Glow liquid illuminator is pure shine in a tube and I am enjoying the gleam it gives to my skin. I wear this on my brow gown, along cheekbones and down the centre of my nose. I will be honest, there is a slight shimmer which is not everybody's cup of tea, but i thoroughly enjoy a spot of gleam here or there. This was from Next and cost around £7.00. 

My under eye area has always been problematic and caused me issues since I've been young. My eyes are fairly deep set and i suffer with blue/purple tones in the corners and underneath. I came across the new Max Factor Colour Corrector Sticks in Boots and popped one swiftly into my basket. I opted for the yellow stick, as this neutralises blue tones and brightens the under eye area. I apply this before my concealer or foundation in stripes under the eye and to the inner corner. Absolute miracle! Max Factor also have a green toned stick to correct redness, a lilac for yellowness and pink to correct dark spots. At £10, this is definitely a new makeup must have.

My hair has a slight wave to it which I have learnt to embrace, but I still find sometimes it is a little lack lustre. I decided to Charles Worthington Body Booster Mousse a whirl, and I am glad I did! I used to loathe the idea of hair mousse, associating it with crispy hair or those wet hair looks. But this left my hair soft yet with more body than usual. Leaving my hair until around 80% dry, I used a paddle brush and my hairdryer to roughly blow dry it. My hair felt silky soft and volumised, which is the look I wanted. Boots currently have 3 for 2 on hair products, so I purchased this along with my next item, but I believe the mousse is around the £6 mark. 

The next product I won't ramble too much about, but it is my absolute day to day saviour! Any ladies with blonde hair will know the battle we have with roots! Batiste Dry Shampoo with a hint of light and blonde, not only gives me clean hair and volume, it gives me a lovely coating over any roots that may be peaking through. I use this even after washing my hair and simply love it. Dirt cheap at around £4 and lasts ages!
