Makeup of the Month | June

I didn't really wear any makeup this month until I went to IMATS, (so I don't even know it this counts for June!) but since then I've been playing around with the new products and lashes I picked up and I've found myself a new staple look!

Face » 
I haven't changed much up in my base routine this month but I have discovered a new way of contouring. I usually just do my bronzing and contouring all in one, but this month I discovered that using the bronzer (MUA Bronzer in Shade 3 - my usual) to add warmth, then using Urban Decay eyeshadow in the shade Naked 2 to contour looks SO much better. Naked 2 is a greyish taupe colour and replicates the look of a natural shadow a lot more than a bronzer ever will. Someone actually complimented me on my contour at IMATS, so I know this technique is a keeper!

(Shades: White Chocolate / Milk Chocolate / Semi Sweet / Triple Fudge / Marzipan)

Eyes » 
I've been playing with the Too-Faced Chocolate Bar Palette this month and let me just get this out of the way first - it smells freaking delicious. Literally. It also looks delicious too. The colours are gorgeous, they blend beautifully and they have good staying power.

My new favourite product to use on the waterline is the Paris Berlin Lip Liner in CR217. It's a cream colour as opposed to white which means it doesn't look harsh and unnatural on the waterline.

The lashes I've very quickly become obsessed with this month are the Eldora H104 lashes I picked up at IMATS. They're perfect for enhancing round eyes or helping eyes look rounder as they're longest in the middle and then get shorter at the edges. They make my eyes looks huge!

Next month I'll start including step-by-step photos so these posts are easier to follow. :)

Lips » 
On my lips is another Paris Berlin Lip Liner, this time in CR220. I love this whole 90s brown/pink trend going on at the moment thanks to Kylie Jenner. So obviously I had to find myself something similar!
