my june favourites

I feel like I haven't properly blogged in ages because of the 30 Day Snap Challenge so I'm back with a bit of a beauty post. 
It's my June favourites.
In my mind summer has officially started now that it's July ... therefore I have to stop being lazy and actually do something because I know September is going to be here before I know it!
Let's not talk about that though (it's slightly depressing), let's talk about what I've been loving this month!

#1 Models Own Make-Up Blending Sponges I picked these up a few months ago in Boots because I have always wanted to try sponges. The pack came with the two sponges and I think it was around £8. I switch up my foundation routine by using brushes and these sponges and sometimes I use both just to make sure everything is blended and looking natural. The small end of the sponge is great for blending in the places that are hard to reach like the corners of your eyes. 

#2 Revlon ColorStay Liquid Liner I absolutely love liquid eyeliner, it's part of my everyday make-up routine. Therefore I've tried and tested lots of different eyeliners but this is one I'll be repurchasing for sure. The brush is quite thick but is more flexible than an eyeliner marker. I find it easy to apply (once I got used to it!) and I think it looks really nice on. 

#3 One Tree Hill Season 9 I've talked about One Tree Hill a lot on my blog recently but I watched the last episode two days ago and I don't know what to do with myself! Do you ever get that when you finish a TV series? I watched the 9 seasons in 4 months so it kind of took over my life & is probably the reason I failed some of my exams! All I'll say is if you're looking for a good TV show, you should definitely watch One Tree Hill.

#4 Topshop Nail Polish in Celestial I've been loving this colour! I think I bought this nail polish nearly a year ago and I've definitely shown it on my blog before but my love for it has rekindled as it gets warmer outside. I think it's a perfect summer nail polish. 

#5 Taylor Swift Wonderstruck Enchanted If you read my blog regularly you probably know that I love Taylor Swift. She's pretty perfect. But I swear I'm not being biased by putting this in my monthly favourites. As you can see the bottle is beautiful and so is the scent. I can't decide if I prefer the original Wonderstruck or this though... I like to switch it up. I think Wonderstruck is more of a day perfume and I wear Wonderstruck Enchanted if I'm going out in the evening. But you can wear it whenever you want! I'm rubbish at describing the smell of perfumes so I'll not even attempt it but if I was to compare Wonderstruck Enchanted with Wonderstruck I'd say it's more 'mature and grown-up'.
