August Favorites 2016

Welcome back to another Makeup Monday friends! I’m a little behind on sharing my monthly favorites, but who cares! This past couple weeks have been crazy for my family and I. I’m glad that things have calmed down and are getting back to normal.

August was a hard month to find favorites for; I guess I didn’t get or use a lot of new or consistent items…but I did find a few things I had loved over the month. A few of these items were also mentioned in my recent Drugstore Haul post, check that out too!


The Flash

My mom and I binged watched The Flash on Netflix this past month and LOVED it! I wish that Netflix had more episodes on it because I am anxious to see what happens next. Have you ever seen The Flash? Let me know what you think!

e.l.f. Bronzer Palette in Bronzed Beauty 

I am finally to a point where I feel a little more confident in contouring and I really love this bronze palette. It has four colors: two matte and two with some shimmer. All colors would work really well on light skin. They blend well and are smooth and buttery. I have used this almost every day all month! dsc_0600

Real Techniques Blush Brush

You know I am a huge fan of all Real Technique brushes and I am slowly buying every one they offer. Recently I picked up the blush brush and once again, I am so impressed with how well made and affordable these brushes are. The blush brush is fluffy and extremely soft. It picks up the color really well and even distributes it across the cheek bones. You really need to invest in these brushes- you won’t be sorry! dsc_0599

Makeup Revolution Pro Illuminate

Makeup Revolution is quickly becoming one of my favorite brands. I picked up this Pro Illuminate because I needed a new highlighter and it is gorgeous! It’s got a champagne tint to it that is completely shimmery and really stands out on your skin. I have used this every time I put makeup on since I bought it. It is so beautiful-they really know how to make a good highlighter.

Dead Sea Wash off Mask 

I received this in my August Ipsy and am so glad I did. It felt so good on my skin and I love the Dead Sea ingredients it contains. I love the packaging as well, it’s in a foil container with a resealable squeeze top. The sample came with enough for two masks and I am excited to buy the full version! dsc_0590

Max Factor Masterpiece Mascara

We can thank Influenster for this addition to the monthly favorites! I received this in my first VoxBox; I am already really impressed! It doesn’t clump and really lengthens my lashes. I am always up for trying a new mascara and this is a pretty good one so far! dsc_0595

Garnier SkinActive Micellar Water

To be honest, I was a little skeptical of this product. I couldn’t understand what all the hype was about; but now I understand! You might feel stupid for buying a product that is basically water…but it totally works! It is cooling and hydrating on your skin and takes my mascara off with very little effort. I love the feel of the water on my skin no matter the time of day. It is great to refresh at any point of the day and takes my makeup off completely. dsc_0585

What are some of the things you loved in August?? Let me know! XO
