August Favorites

This month I’ve been using basically the same products everyday. I’m excited to share what I’ve been loving this month with you guys. Usually it’s hard for me to stick to one product for an entire month because I like to switch it up a bit. But this month I’ve really been paying attention to what I use and how often.

Skincare first of course!

The first product on my list is the Tatcha Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil. Even though I’m oily I really like cleansing oils to remove my makeup. This cleansing oil gently melts away makeup (waterproof as well) and impurities from the skin leaving it soft and clean. I really like that it is light and thin unlike others that I’ve tried out in the past.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing  Clay Mask is my favorite mask right now. Tea Tree Oil is an oil used to help deep clean and kill bacteria in the skin. YES PLEASE! My skin is very problematic and oily. This green cooling mask is everything I have ever wanted in a skin care product. If you only have problems in certain areas you can also use this mask as a spot treatment.

Before foundation I have been using the Benefit Porefessional primer. This primer fills in pores and creates a very smooth surface for your foundation. It helps to mask the texture on my skin and keeps my foundation on longer than expected.

We all have our go to foundations, this month mine has been the Dior Airflash Spray Foundation. WOW. If you have never tried this beauty, it is worth the trip to Sephora or a counter. I have never used such a flawless foundation in my life. The weartime is phenomenal and it stays smooth all day long. Don’t let the spray packaging scare you, just spray it on a dense foundation brush and apply on your skin. You will not be disappointed!

Tarte Shape Tape concealer (Exclusive to Ulta) has made a huge dent in the beauty world with its amazing coverage, blendability, and of course the versatility with shades. I love this gel concealer, the consistency is wonderful, it covers every imperfection, and doesn’t crease under my eyes.

Kat Von D has made such a great name for her brand. But her setting spray has worked wonders for my makeup game this month. It has cucumber in the formula to keep the skin looking nice and fresh. The hydrating formula allows your makeup to set without looking dry and also adds a wear time of 24 hours to my makeup.

Those of us who are oily understand the importance of a good setting powder. I stumbled upon the Makeup Forever Super Matte Loose Powder, I was skeptical at first but gave it a shot and I’m so glad I did. I’m not usually one to use a ton of powder on my skin because I still like to look hydrated. So the word “Super Matte” scared me a bit. I wore it once and I was hooked, it is extremely smooth and flawless, blurs imperfections, and sets foundation better than any other setting powder I’ve ever used.

Tarte blushes don’t look like much when you open them. They look dull in color until you apply them. Sephora’s birthday gift this year offers the Tarte blush Paaarty and a lip color. The blush is a beautiful soft pink that adds a bit of color to your cheeks and is perfect for everyday makeup looks.

Now lets talk about eyes!

If you’ve read my last post or follow me on Instagram you know I have been LOVING the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette. The colors and pigment are amazing and you can create soft everyday looks and sexy bold smokey looks as well. You do however need to know that you have to place the color where you want it and then blend it out.

Another Kat Von D product that I have loved from the beginning of Kat Von D makeup time is the Tattoo Liner in Trooper. Trooper is well,  a trooper! It stays put all day long, doesn’t smear, move, or disappoint me in any way. This is THE DARKEST LINER EVER.

A lot of people don’t see the hype of mascara and some think that they are all the same. I’ve been grabbing for my Urban Decay Perversion Mascara more than anything recently. I love that it is just enough length and volume while it holds my lashes’ natural curl. I don’t have a problem with smearing or smudging throughout the day, my days are usually about 14 hours long.
