Ok, where did August go? I seemed to have blinked and missed it somehow, it only feels like yesterday I was doing my post on my July favourites and here I am doing August! This year is sailing in way too fast I can’t keep up! But guess what’s round the corner? AUTUMN! I’m literally so excited for autumn with the fluffy jumpers, cosy nights in and hot chocolate, with the warm toned eyeshadow palettes and red lips, I cannot contain my excitement!
But aaaaanyways, throughout the month of August I’ve been trying to switch my make up game up slightly, trying out products I own but never used and found some absolute beauties along with some other products non-makeup related. So they clearly have made it into my August favourites. So lets just jump right in!
Zoella Beauty Body Mist
I couldn’t start my August favourites without this body mist, its been my absolute go to fragrance this summer since I bought it (if you haven’t checked it out yet my Zoella Beauty haul post is here). Such a fresh scent, not gonna lie the smell of the elderflower can be overpowering at first but once you get used to it its honestly amazing, like nothing I’ve ever smelt before so completely unique. The packaging is delicious and so aesthetically pleasing to look at, such a 60’s vibe with this packaging. I love it!
Can be purchased from Superdrug for £8.00.
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Precision Longwear Liquid Eyeliner
If you want a crisp, sharp and pigmented eyeliner then this definitely needs added to your make up bag. Easy to use, it glides on effortlessly onto your eyelid to create a beautiful line and fantastic to help create a wing with its precision tip. Doesn’t bleed into the skin and has no problems gliding over eyeshadows as well. Lasts absolutely ages and wins hands down over all my other eyeliners. Absolutely love this product.
Too Faced Love Flush Blush – Funfetti
Its no longer available anymore, gutted! But I’ve been using this throughout the whole of August as its such a beautiful blush colour. I received it back in July in my Look Incredible box (welcome to check out my post regarding this box here) and just check out the design! Even though I’ve used this almost everyday the design hasn’t faded away which I’m truly glad about but the colour is just that perfect shade of summer.
Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Calabasas
I love the formula of the velour liquid lippies from Jeffree as they glide on opaque, dry completely matte and last for hours! The colour Calabasas has been my go to throughout the month of August though as its such a beautiful rosy red shade. With the doe foot applicator its a dream to apply.
Skinkissed Vitamin C Serum*
(As you can see from the pictures I managed to ruin the packaging 🙁 gutted!). I received this from the lovely people over at Skinkissed and its such an amazing serum. Including Vitamin C, Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid its made my skin look and feel amazing. I’ve been using this before going to bed and as a primer before popping on my make up and honestly its made a huge difference to my skin, it looks more radiant, feels a lot firmer and my acne scars have dramatically reduced. It does feel quite thick when first applied but it rubs into the skin just perfectly.
Can be purchased from Amazon for £20.00.
I’ve recently started reading this again since I got back into make up and beauty to help me with ideas on what’s hot and what’s not right now, also this magazine is only the small price of £1! Easy to slip into the handbag as well when travelling. Also the magazine is fantastic as a blog prop 😉
