I know everyone says this but I cannot believe another month has gone by. Is it just me or is this year going too quickly? Anyways, here are my monthly favourites for August. I've been reviving some products from the archives and I have fallen in love with them all over again. Grab yourself a cup of tea and keep reading to find out more!
Inglot Freedom System Eyeshadows
If you would like to see a full blog post on my Inglot palette let me know but in brief, the shadows are affordable, amazing and highly pigmented. I have 40 shades and I love and use each and every one of them!
Soap & Glory Antibacterial Gel
This is a bit of a random one I know but when you're working on client's hand sanitiser is a must! I go through these like wild fire and what I love about the Soap&Glory one - aside from it being pink - is it smells so pleasant and fruity unlike the clinical smell these products usually have.
Milani Luminoso Blush
This has been a long time favourite of mine, so much so all the writing has worn off the packaging! It is a beautiful baked blush in a peachy coral which is great on all skin tones! I picked mine up on a trip to America but you can now purchase it from beautybay.com. It's also inexpensive and I've had mine nearly 18months and I still haven't hit pan on it yet!
Essence Lash Princess Mascara
This mascara is the bees knees! costing approximately €6 it is one of the best I have used. It is super black and the bristle allows you to coat every single lash without making them clumpy. I got this mascara in a Glossybox and haven't looked back. A great find and available in most chemists.
Garnier Micellar Water
I decided to include this in my August favourites for two reasons. One: I use it on the daily and never think of giving it the credit it deserves and Two: I picked up this cute mini in Pennys and it is so convenient to throw in your makeup bag. I'm sure you have tried this product so I'm going to move on...
These bad boys are a complete game changer. I have been using these when creating dramatic looks to prevent fall down and also make a super sharp winged liner. They make it super effortless and easy to do makeup and you don't have to work if you make a mess! Great for makeup artist to have in their kit and also for beginnings as they do all the work for you.
Avene Hydrance Serum
I received this serum in a goodie bag from Marissa's Masterclass(Click Here) and it's only in recent weeks I have started to use it. It is super hydrating and has cleared up my skin to look radiant and healthy. I applied one pump in the morning before moisturiser.
It is on the pricey side but invest in good skincare, it's one thing you won't regret!
Collection Lasting Perfection
The lasting perfection concealer has been a cult product and for good reason. It's cheap and cheerful and does a great job as an under eye concealer. I get the shade light and use it to conceal my dark circles and it covers them brilliantly. It also does not crease which is a major issue with most concealers!
NYX Lip Palettes
These are great palettes for a Makeup Artist to have in their kit. They are compact and lightweight and offer a great range of colours. I like to mix shades together to get custom colours. Nyx overall is an amazing brand and it is now available from Boots which makes it accessible for everyone. I personally love the pink palette but they also do an Orange and Brown/Nude which I have to pick up soon!
Hope you enjoyed reading this months favourites. Have you used any of these products before? What are you thoughts?
Until next time,
