Well Hello! I haven’t posted a new blog all summer! I’ve had the busiest summer! I GOT MARRIED! Planning a wedding sucked up 99% of my summer, but it was so worth it!
Since it’s the beginning of the month, and i haven’t posted a blog in forever, I thought I would fill you in with what I’ve been loving lately!
The first thing I bought early in the month and haven’t stopped using it, is the NARS lipgloss in Stolen Kisses. O.M.G. This lipgloss is so pretty! NARS recently changed their formula, so their lipgloss’s are now creamy, not sticky, and opaque. This is also a great color for that “Kylie Jenner” lip trend that has been going around lately.
Another lip product i have been loving that also falls into the “Kylie Jenner” lip trend is the Essence Long Lasting LIpstick in 06 Barely There. This is a really long lasting lipstick for a $3 lipstick! It’s creamy and moisturizing, and is the perfect “Kylie Jenner” lip shade.
I have been using the Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous foundation. I believe this is about $6-$7 at the drugstore and is just fabulous! It’s long lasting, and has pretty good coverage for not being too heavy.
I’ve been pairing Maybelline Fit Me concealer with the Covergirl foundation. The Fit Me concealer is a fairly sheer concealer but it gives the most flawless effect and covers up my dark circles pretty well!
For setting the Fit Me concealer I’ve been using the Essence All About Matt! powder. Don’t be alarmed by the fact that it’s white! It’s completely sheer and sets my concealer so well! It doesn’t budge at all during the day, and it’s even nice to swipe over your t-zone midday. You can find Essence at Ulta, in the drugstore section!
My last makeup favorite is a bronzer that I have had for a while now! It’s the Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Medium 2. This is just a matte bronzer that’s great for contouring and overall bronzing. I’ve had this for months now and I just hit pan this month! It’s really long lasting, and looks very natural.
For skincare I just have two favorites!
I’ve been removing my makeup with the Garnier Clean Nourishing Cleansing Oil. You simply just pump a few pumps in your (dry) hands, and gently rub away your eye makeup. The dry oil on the dry skin just dissolves all my eye makeup! My favorite part is that it only takes about 20 seconds for all my eye makeup to come off! And for those of you who know me personally, you know I like to wear a lot of mascara! 🙂
After I have taken off all my eye makeup I have been using the First Aid Beauty Face Cleanser. I have heard a couple things about this face cleanser and I was really interested to try it out for myself! It takes off my makeup very gently, but effectively! After using this face cleanser and my Clarisonic I don’t have a bit of makeup left on my face!
So, those were all my favorites for the month of August! Let me know what your favorites of the month are!
