For a bit of beauty inspiration, take a look at the products I have loved during the month of June…
No7 Stay Perfect Foundation (£14.50)
I hadn’t tried any of the Boots No7 foundations until recently. After having a £3 off No7 voucher I decided to give them a whirl. This foundation claims to last up to 24 hours with a natural and lightweight feel. The product gives good medium coverage, and while it lasts a long time, it doesn’t dry to a matte finish so it still manages to look luminous and fresh. Sometimes, long-lasting foundations can tend to cake up and cling to areas of the face during the course of the day. However, I actually think that this foundation looks better as the day goes on. It’s great for those with normal, dry or combination skin. If you prefer a more matte finish maybe try out No7’s Beautifully Matte.
Too Faced Candlelight Glow (£25.00)
I have been using this highlighter for the majority of the month as it’s just so easy to wear. This highlighting powder contains two different shades in a compact. Half is a pale shimmery pink that counteracts any dullness in the skin. The other half is a white gold shade that adds a luminous ‘candlelight glow’ to the face. I usually swirl the two shades together to give a fresh glow to my cheekbones. It does contain shimmer, but doesn’t give an ultra-metallic sheen, so it’s perfect for everyday wear.
Maybelline Colour Drama Lipstick (£4.99)
These lipsticks come in a chunky pencil form, which means you get a bit more precision than a regular lipstick. The finish is satin matte, but doesn’t dry lips out and has a creamy texture. They last a really long time on the lips too, so I don’t need to think about reapplying throughout the day. There is a good selection of shades available ranging from everyday nudes to fluorescent pink. I have been wearing ‘Nude Perfection’ a medium nude and ‘Berry Much’ a deep plum.
