August Beauty Favorites

 

August Beauty Favorites

 

 
It’s that time of the month (no I’m not talking about Aunt Flo lol ) but Monthly Beauty Favorites. You know what I love about Beauty Favorites is that I get to show you all of my favorites of the month. 
 
August Beauty Favorites: 
 
My favorite foundation to wear during the hot summers. Stays matte and it’s oil-free. 
 
NYX Setting Powder
A mineral finishing powder that sets your favorite look with a flawless finish; skin appears fresh and radiant throughout the day. Just a hint of color provides enough coverage to be worn over makeup or on bare moisturized skin.
 
I’m really picky when it comes to mascara. But Maybelline never fails me. I love their Sensational mascara. It’s waterproof, extra black and really extends the lashes. Even without my falsies my real eyelashes look long. Which I love so much. 
 
I have a huge obsession with ColourPop highlighters. When I saw that Makeup Revolution had a baked highlighter.. I had to try it out. The highlighter is so pigmented. Review on this highlighter coming this month!
 
 I have been trying to find a contouring brush that was dupe of the Nars Ita Kabuki Brush ($55) and I found it. This ELF Brush runs for $6 which is such a bargain for a brush that’s drugstore. 
 
This pencil has become my new favorite lip pencil. Super pigmented, soft and creamy. You know how some pencils are hard because they’re shaped like an actual pencil..these aren’t. Price: $4.99
 
 
Here are my favorites for the month August. 
What are yours?

    I love your beauty posts! Gives me new things to try. Question – have you ever showed on the blog what kind of false eyelashes you wear? I’m having a hard time finding some that fit.

    • Thank you so much. I haven’t yet but I can do it for this month πŸ™‚

  • I have that Elf brush but I don’t really know how I should be using it.. I tried for contouring, but I dont think I am using it right! I have heard so much about that foundation, but I can never seem to find it!

    • With the brush you basically use it to outline underneath the cheek bone but don’t do it too close to your mouth otherwise it looks like you got a 5 o’clock shadow going on lol

      Walmart, Target and Ulta carries the foundation.

    I love everything you mentioned. I am still trying to get my hands on the Makeup Revolution highlight though!

  • Dude, ELF brushes are literally the bomb.com. I’ve recently fallen in love with them again. I need to get that brush. The NARS one was on my wishlist for a while but I just couldn’t justify paying so much for it!

    • Yeah that’s why I didn’t get it. lol This one does its job.
