August Favorites!

Hi there! Today I'm doing my August favorites. I love Summer so much, but I'm glad fall is coming! It's chilly here today, I cannot wait to wear boots! And drink hot chai tea! So let's get to my favorite products this month..


1. Simple cleansing wipes. I bought these originally to keep at my boyfriends house but they have yet to make it there. They remove makeup so well! I needed an alternative to my beloved Sephora makeup remover and I had heard good things about these. I will always use my Sephora remover but I will continue to purchase these as well.

2. Hoola Bronzer by Benefit. Guys. This stuff is great! I was skeptical about buying a high end bronzer when I first purchased it but I'm so glad I did. It's the perfect shade for me to contour with and it lasts all day. I've had this for well over 6 months and I have yet to hit pan. I featured this in my first post "All Time Favorites." It has a well deserved spot there.

3. Milani Luminoso Baked Blush. I own one other Milani Baked Blush and I love it, it's just a tad dark. This is the perfect coral shimmery blush for summer. It gives you a beautiful glow and looks great with my skin tone. I've been on a blush kick lately and I believe I have this blush to thank!

4. L'Oreal True Match Concealer. I use this to brighten my under eye area, it looks fabulous. It's very blendable and doesn't get cakey on me! I set it with my ELf HD powder and I'm always very happy with the results.

5. NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk. I've had this forever and haven't really used it a lot this month. I've been using a lot of bright, fun colors and just a bit of this really makes the colors pop! I have to be careful with it because I hear If you use too much it can crease, but I have never run into that problem. Love this!

6. Black Nails! The polish in the picture is Rimmel Black Satin, but I've just really been loving black nails. I wore them for over a week straight which is unheard of in my world. I change my polish like, every 3 days. Black nails will never go out of style in my opinion! Just like little black dresses for your nails!

7. Purple Covergirl Eyeshadow #455. I used this shadow quite a bit this month, I just wore it to a cocert last week. I used this shadow in my Purple Smokey Eye Look too. When I first bought it, I was indifferent on it, but I totally love it now! Purple is my favorite color, and this is a great purple eyeshadow, plus it was only 3 dollars I believe!. Can't beat it.

8 Sigma Flat Top Kabuki Brush F80. I love Sigma brushes! I own 2 sets and I use them religiously. This one inparticular I found myself reaching for a lot lately. I've found so many uses for it but lately my favorite way to use it is for buffing in my mineral foundation. It makes it look flawless!

Just for kicks I figure ill throw in some extra favorites. Just so you guys can get to know me more!

My favorite food is the month: I'd say is stir-fry. I was making it all the time!

Tv show: Rules of Engagement, I've just started watching it this month and I think it's hilarious. It's a cheesy sitcom but I do love those!

Movie: Both Despicable Me movies, so cute!

Music: I've so been loving my HIM they have long since been my favorite band but I finally got to see them in concert last week and I'm absolutely in love all over again. Can't get enough.

Book: Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual!

So those were my favorites for the month of August. Bring it on September! I'll have a tutorial for you guys tomorrow, ias always thanks so much for reading!!
