August has been one hell of a month!! First off, I celebrated my 23rd birthday and that was something super exciting. I really enjoyed my birthday surrounded by my friends and family. For the most part, August was a challenging month and I’m excited for September to come as a fresh start and also because September for me means FALL!!!
I’m super excited for September because I love the fall time!! Anyway, I did have a few favorites this month that I used pretty much all month long. Keep reading to see why the products pictured above have been my absolute favorite!! Enjoy!
e.l.f. Eyeliner & Shadow Stick in Brown/Basic by e.l.f. Cosmetics: Usually I like to line my eyes with black liquid liner and make a cat-eye but this month I have been all about brown eyeliner smudged on my upper and lower lash line, like I wore it in My Birthday Makeup. This brown liner by e.l.f. Cosmetics lasts all day long and blends super easily!! The other end is an eyeshadow stick which I like to put under eyeshadow for an extra pop!! You can purchase this liner/eyeshadow stick here for $3!
Color Icon Bronzer SPF 15 in Ticket to Brazil by wet n wild: This month I also started adding shimmery bronzer to my makeup routine. I like to put it right above where I do my contour so it adds a nice summer glow. I’ve had this bronzer for a while and I really like the subtle shimmer and that it is the perfect shade to accentuate my skin tone! This bronzer retails around $4 and can be found here or at your local drugstore.
Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Paaarty by Tarte: I received this deluxe sample blush as part of my birthday gift from Sephora. I love the beautiful dusty rose shade, it gives my cheeks the perfect color! This particular shade can be found here for $29.
Hangover Replenish Face Primer by Too Faced: I have used this primer before and then went back to my usual Smashbox primer. When I ran out of primer I decided to go back to this one because it makes my face feel refreshed, helps my makeup last all day, and it also has a lovely smell. As many of you may know, I sweat like crazy during the summer months and this primer helps keep my makeup on even on days that I sweat like crazy. You can find this primer here retailing at $32 which is kind of pricey but well worth it!!
These are my favorites for the month of August! Have you tried any of these products?
