Favourites | June Beauty

Happy July! Summer is in full-swing and here are my favourites from the month of June. Perfect recs for the warmer months. Lots of these I have talked about again & again, so click on any links for related posts.

Working on looking less ghostly and more summer-like with tarte Brazilliance. Super easy self tanner for beginners. I just talked about it here, so I'll leave it at that. It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Hair Product is a super hyped up product with a pretty steep price tag for a little bottle, so I used those Birchbox points to give it a try. I have to say-I love it. It's a thick creme in the bottle but sprays out a fine mist while still feeling rich. The sun, pool, and beach activities of summer can really damage your hair, so I have been loving using this after a shower. Liz Earle Instant Boost Skin Tonic Spritzer has been in my favourites before, but I have to give it another shout-out as it's been a life-saver this summer. Right when I walk back in the door, I have to reach for it and give my face a spray. I heard it's good to put in the fridge, so I am going to have to try that... For nails, I have been wearing American Apparel Nail Polish in Peacock and Butter London The Old Bill. I am loving them as a not-so-obvious summer choice. Malin + Goetz 1 oz. Essential Kit is a summer essential (essential essentials...) If you are planning on going anywhere this summer, you should pick this up. It's everything you need in the cutest travel friendly bottles without sacrificing quality.

As for make-up picks, things haven't changed too much from last month's, but a new addition is the SheaMoisture Create-Your-Own Palette. I am so happy to finally have a place to depot my shadows and add new pans. I ran out of my UD Primer Potion (look out for an empties post) and have been using the Too Faced Shadow Insurance this month. Keeps my shadows lasting all day. I really don't have a preference between the UD, Too Faced, or Nars primers-all have worked great for me. For lips, I have been loving a bright orange. Milani Sweet Nectar and NYX Butter Gloss in Peach Cobbler are both great options depending on what you are looking for finish and tone-wise. Finally, an oldie has been getting much love this month-Nars The Happening palette. I have been using Orgasm and Laguna daily for my blush/bronzer combo, but the shadows were also perfect for my trip to D.C. I stuck with the neutrals for the day and added the purple for a night out. It's seriously the best palette for travel.

Trying to keep up with linking products again, so here's my Luvocracy Collection for these favourites!
