Whether you’ve bagged tickets to the coolest gig in town, or you’re setting up camp in your garden with the speakers on full blast, festival style is a huge part of June’s vibe. And where better to start, than at the top? This month, we’ll show you how to recreate our fave three eyeliner looks for the festival season.

The classic cat eye has had a makeover on the catwalks, so we’re here to get you feline good (get it? Soz). It’s all about the doodles this time around and Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner is the perfect pen shape, so you can draw on your flicks with the precision of a ninja cat.

Method:

1. Swipe the eyeliner from the inner corner to the outer corner of your eye. Increase the thickness slightly as you get towards the outer edge.

2. Angle your wrist, so you can add a flick in one smooth movement. Try not to apply too much pressure – no panda eyes here!

3. Look straight ahead and dot your Eyeko liner below your lower lashes, in line with your pupil.

4. For some added sparkle, grab a cute body tattoo, or glitter, and dust lightly near the outer edges of your eye. Ta-da!

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner is available in June’s bettybox, or shop their full range of eyeliner here.

We’re on the home straight now, people. The end of term is in sight. If the start of the summer hols also marks the arrival of your period, July’s bettybox will get through the season of pom-pom sandals and salted caramel ice cream. I mean, you’ve lasted three whole terms, surviving summer should be an absolute breeze…

Candy Kittens

There’s nothing we love more than sitting down on a Monday night and watching all the dramz that go on in SW2. But, did you know that Made In Chelsea’s Jamie Laing has an actual proper job that’s not just hanging around with Sam Thompson and Alex Mytton? Jamie set up his own biz called Candy Kittens, which make tasty sweets that are all shaped like cats. What more could you want? They’re also totally gluten-free and use natural flavourings. Get your hands on a purrr-fect pack in July’s bettybox. Bye sugar cravings!

 

Lisa Angel

Love jewellery? These dainty Lisa Angel bracelets are super-cute (and will probs hide nicely under your school jumper *wink*) so we’ve popped one in this month’s bettybox. There are three shapes up for grabs; which one will you get? We want to know, so upload a photo to Instagram and tag @bettycollective! The sweet shapes on the chains can even represent your mates: the triangle for your trio, a star for your bunch of five, or even larger shapes, you popular person, you.

Scrub Love

People drink caffeine to wake up their senses; but for summer, we want radiant, wide awake skin! Unless you literally want to have a bath in your mum’s favourite posh coffee (not advised) enter stage left: Scrub Love Coffee Scrub in Coconut Affair. This lush smelling coffee scrub exfoliates and increases circulation, so you’ll have glowing skin in no time. The coconut scent is totally beaut too – you’ll be transported to an island paradise. Then, you know, bump down back to earth as your sister bangs on the door yelling that you’re using up all the hot water.

Hurray! Your June bettybox is finally here. And, you know what else is? SUMMER! We’re feeling good right now. Sure, it’s festival season, but we’re also finding the time to chill out with some summer tunes, soak in a bath with our Bomb Cosmetics mallow, burn our Scent Circus melt and eat our yummy Divine chocolate bar. Because when our period strikes, we all need a little TLC. We’re also obsessed with wings this month. No, not the ones on our pads! We’re all over eyeliner flicks thanks to Eyeko. Enjoy!

Oh, June! You’ve arrived out of nowhere (kinda like our period does sometimes), and all of a sudden, we’re prepping for end of year tests to determine our classes for September. Erm, hello? What about the summer? Like the official exams in May weren’t enough…

In this month’s box, we’ve got a selection of goodies to get you through that last little bit of the school year, so relax, get some luck, and then celebrate those results at the end.

TINK A LINK Charm

We all need a bit of luck from time to time. TINK A LINK are encouraging us to #USEALITTLECHARM with their amazing collection of phone charms. You can stick them to the back of your phone, or buy a TINK A LINK case and let them float about. June’s shenanigans call for the wishbone or clover charms for an added pot of luck. There are plenty of other shapes to chose from, too (we’re talking elephants, stars and letters), with some gold -plated or crafted from moonlight steel, for an added sparkle.

Bomb Cosmetics ‘Fields of Joy’ Bath Mallow

At the end of a long day, there’s nothing more calming than a long bath. It’s pretty much a warm hug for your whole body; with or without cramps, what could be more soothing? Bomb Cosmetics Bath Mallow fizzles slowly as it releases moisturising properties and the most amazing scent. ‘Fields of Joy’ is our absolute fave: the combo of chamomile, frankincense, ginger and mandarin smell divine and is so calming for the skin. Find your zen this month.

Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner

Once exams are over, it’s time to let loose with your galpals. Grab that backpack and head out for an afternoon with your friends. Feeling bloated and a little under the weather because of your period? Lift your spirits, and face, with a perfect cat eye. Eyeko’s Skinny Liquid Pen is so easy to use, it’s literally like doodling on a perfect canvas (aka your face *hair flick*) It will last for ages too, so there’s none of that reapplying dramz. To recreate the eyeliner look on all the catwalks at the moment, your betty Collective holds a little treat too…

May is hurtling round the corner so quickly it’s starting to make me feel a little queasy. But the good news is, May’s bettybox is about to hit doorsteps all around the country and as per usual, it’s filled with pads, tampons and more goodies than you could possibly wish for.

Here are three reasons not to miss May’s bettybox:

1. It’s Belly-licious

Not only does this month’s box come with Jelly Belly’s assorted jelly beans but there will also be a recipe in the collective mag that will show you how to turn them into a delicious summer slushy.

2. Get a head start on your holiday essentials

The box also comes with Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Shampoo & Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Conditioner combo in travel mini size, making them the perfect companion for your summer hols or to your friend’s sleepover.

3. Chocolate that’s actually good for you

I know, I know, it sounds like a scam but we promise it’s not! The brilliant people at Conscious Chocolate make their products from vegan organic and raw ingredients – and the taste ah-mazing. We’re giving away a variety of flavours, Essential Orange, Mint Hint, Goji & Coconut and Lions Raw and they’re so good we bet you’ll end up licking the wrapper. Just whatever you do, don’t eat that bit too, it’s probably not quite as healthy. Or delicious.

What is bettybox?

Sometimes periods can get you down. The blood. The cramps. The maths involved with remembering how often to change your pad or tampon. The fear you’ll be caught short by a surprise visit. But that’s what bettybox is for; making periods a little less scary, and a bit more wonderful.

bettybox is a subscription service that is delivered to you once a month. Our beautifully designed box comes with all the sanitary products that you need for the month, and you can choose if you want pads, tampons or a mix of both – complete with a cool little pouch for your school bag, to make sure you always have supplies.

And if that wasn’t amazing enough, there’s a whole section of bits and bobs for you to treat yourself with – like bubble bath, socks, nail polish, face masks and fun shaped paper clips. And chocolate, obvs. Each month, a whole new treasure trove of goodies, delivered straight to your door.

What’s in the box?
