August Beauty Favourites

31 August 2014
Although I'm upset about summer coming to an end & all that, I can't help but be excited for the Autumn months right around the corner, one of my favourite times of year! It seems crazy that another month has flew in again but after posting my non beauty favourites throughout the week (link here) I realised that I hadn't posted my beauty favourites - probably the more important of the two, so here's my august beauty favourites! 

MAC Studio Fix Fluid Foundation, The Body Shop Honey Bronzer, Kate Moss Lipstick, 17 Phwoarr Paint, Collection Eyeliner, Maybelline Brow Drama, Natural Collection Bronzing Balls

My all time favourite this month has to be my MAC studio fix, now I know I'm seriously late to the party with this one but now I'm hooked. I usually tend to wear more drugstore foundations on a day to day basis because let's face it, there a lot easier to replace but with the studio fix I can't help myself, I look at all my foundations to choose one and this still comes up top. I'm also posting a review about this next week (that's why I'm trying not to go into too much detail). With any foundation you need a good concealer and for this month I've been using my 17 phwoarrr paint, so much so that I've hit pan! It's much easier to use in the summer months because the heat melts it slightly and makes it easier to apply, compared to normal when to you have to melt it yourself.

During summer everyone has the bronzed and glowing look (whether it be real or fake) and so bronzers are a girls best friend. I've been alternating between two depending on whether I want a subtle or more noticeable look. The first bronzer is The Body Shops Honey Bronzer in the shade light, for once I'm not the lightest shade! And it's wonderful, I love the packaging, the detail on the bronzer itself and of course the product - it provides a very natural bronzed look to my cheeks, just what I need for days I don't feel awake yet. The second bronzer was one that had been lying in the back of my makeup drawer, the Natural Collection Bronzing Pearls but I've found that these act as a bronzer/highlighter in one and a light swirl of this just finishes off my look perfectly.

As you know I've an on/off relationship with the Maybelline Brow Drama but this month we've been getting along and instead of stressing over what way my eyebrows look I've just been using this and I don't have that worry - it sorts them right out. I also repurchased my Collection felt eyeliner and because I can apply it without looking like a panda I've been opting for this a lot on my eyes as it makes them look bigger and more awake. Lastly I've been loving my Kate Moss lipstick in 03, I'm not usually a nude lip sort of person but this lipstick is just a really nice colour and I don't have to panic about it going anywhere through the day - amazing! So that's my beauty favourites done, hope you enjoyed it :)

  3. I think Natural Collection products are really underrated! I have a really nice concealer by them and their loose powder is great too. Glad they're getting the love from other people too!
