Hello beautiful ladies,
I have finally submitted all my assignments and can breathe again today after a few weeks of pressure. I thank you all for sticking with my irregular posts and promise to come up with a system of posts scheduled in advance with my 7 week break before going back to uni for Semester 2.
My first post for June will be my makeup looks and there were a few to choose from this month.

After spending the previous week with a red raw nose from sneezing, I’m feeling heaps better here and wanted to play with some new looks. I used the Tarte Swamp Queen and I quite liked it.
I was going to work after a week off so I went for a rustic brown and gold shimmer eye.

I was running a few errands today and my lips were so dry, I didn’t want to wear any lipstick but I did use the Lip Extreme to add that plump pink tone. I went with a warm brown smoky eye with a pop of gold in the centre of my eyelids.
The Tarte Pro palette has so many options and they blend so well. It’s become my favourite Tarte palette (sorry, Tartelette and In Bloom).

Today was all about using some new and some revisited items from my stash. The Jeffree Star Androgyny Palette is a-maz-ing. It is that good. I also found a way to make the Born This Way foundation work for me with The Ordinary’s High-Spreadability Primer.
I wasn’t going anywhere special except to work but I will use this look to go out with in the future.

My makeup on Saturday night had to stay put for 8 hours so I focused on the eyes with a maroon/gold eye and winged liner. I didn’t use a lip product but applied lip balm as I needed it which was often.
We went to an NRL football game for my fiancé’s birthday present. It ended up being quite a fun night for us.

Today, my makeup had to last 12 hours, no touch ups so needed serious staying power. Who else reaches for Double Wear on these days? I just want to say that I’m in love with this lip colour from Jeffree Star and the staying power.
I was at uni all day with lectures, tutorials and group assignments.

I’m in love with the brown/gold combo this month and I probably wouldn’t have included this picture except I wanted to show the Kat Von D palette being used and the MUG highlighter that appears quite dark in the pan but is very wearable IRL.
It was a uni day so I was just doing the usual lectures, tutorials and assignments.
