June Update!

After a super busy May and first week in June I was certainly ready for a sunshine break! I must admit I relaxed as soon as I arrived in Spain this time, usually it takes me a few days to unwind but I think I was so shattered I just immediately went into the relaxed holiday vibe : )
We had a fabulous holiday in Marbella, Seville and Cordoba it was great to experience different parts of Spain and we loved every minute. See some of my holiday snaps below.
Also see some of the unusual places I have had to set up my kit this month! I was also lucky enough to do make-up for the world pole dancing champion Alessandra Marchetti she was ubertalented, previously a ballerina and gymnast and super lovely to boot.

All set up for weddings and shoots as of late mostly working in bathrooms! 

 Serious Pole dancing complete with bling, checkout the gold pole!

and relax.....
 Jerez, and yes a bottle of sherry was definitely purchased!

 Seville oranges : )

 Flamenco show.

 Beautiful Cordoba

Ohh, and I also had a yummy afternoon tea at The Sanderson hotel for Mum's birthday. Highly recommend, it was one of our favourite afternoon teas!

My top five make-up products for June!

1) Lola lip brush available at M&S. 
I have been on the hunt for the perfect lip brush for what feels like forever! All of the premium brands I have tried the brush hairs splay out after some use making for rather annoying application of lip colour. I tested out the Lola lip brush, a great price at £10.00 last year and six months later I am so impressed no splayed hairs at all and I have just brought another!
2) Daniel Sandler Rosy Tan Eyeshadow.
This colour is a beautiful shade of pink that if I am honest I have found very hard to find anything similar to.  A staple in my kit and used on so many of my clients this is a firm summer favourite of mine. Looks great worn alone or with browns, greys or purples for stronger and smokier eyes.
3) MAC Shale Eyeshadow.
I have always loved this shade it looks particularly good on mature eyes! A mauve shade that's great for achieving smokey eye looks aswell as softer daytime eyes. Incidentally this is the perfect partner to Daniel Sandler Rosy Tan-wear this on eyelids and 'shale' through the sockets for a defined eye.
4) Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation.
I am loving this foundation at the moment! It stays all day and achieves beautiful flawless coverage.
This is a new favourite of mine and is ideal for those that like a perfect full coverage foundation.  The light version is less heavy and equally as fabulous.
5) Loreal Paris Glam Shine Gloss Brilliance 6hr.
These glosses are just great! An excellent colour range I have most in my kit now and one shade 'Fresh Tangerine 405' has remained in my make up bag so you know it must be good! Affordable and long wearing what more could a girl want.

Happy Shopping!
