Hi guys! Its officially August and there’s only four months left in the year which blows my mind! I have definitely had a great year so far and I am so excited to see what’s in store for the rest of the year! In today’s post I’ll be sharing my favorite products from July and some things I’ve used up. I’m thinking about finding a way to incorporate my IG story to be consistent with my blog posts. It will take some work but I know I can find a good system. If you have any ideas on a good way to do that please let me know in the comments.
I had a few products that I used up this month. These are mostly repurchased products except for the Tony Moly face wash which I loved! The Murad eye cream was a sample I had gotten and it felt really nice. I have gone back to using Benefit’s Goof Proof for now until I repurchase the Anastasia pencil. If you have any questions about these products I will be more than happy to answer in the comments!
On to the favorites.. Let me start by saying if you are looking for a new eye-shadow palette but don’t know which brand to go with, I would highly recommend the Too Faced Sweet Peach Palette. It has quickly become one of my favorite palettes. The color scheme is honestly perfect for all seasons. It has great warm tones and a few cooler options. You get seven amazing matte transition shades and the rest are a shimmery or satin finish. I reach for this constantly and love that I can get a complete look out of it. Sometimes I do want more of a golden lid so I’ll reach for my Milani Shadow in Bella Copper. It goes on so smooth and has amazing pigment.
I’ve been skipping eyeliner a lot recently. I can’t remember the last time I did a cat eye to be honest. I started smudging eyeliner underneath my eye and I love how it really opens up the eye and still gives some depth. On my waterline I will do the Nyx Wonder Pencil to brighten the eye area and make me look more awake. During the summer I do wear a lot of waterproof mascara so I like to use a primer so the mascara won’t be as hard to get off. The Lancome Cils Booster XL works great with any mascara and even softens the formula to make some less clumpy. Lately I’ve been keeping the brows pretty basic and just doing Benefit‘s Gimme Brow. It gives shape and adds a little color to the sparse areas. Its a must for me every time I do my makeup; along with blush. The Too Faced Love Hangover blush is one of my all time favorites. It’s the perfect flush of pink without being too bright. My last step is the NYX lip liner in Mauve. It’s just a little darker than my lips and has really great wear. I’ll even pair a ChapStick over it for a really easy lip. My only non beauty favorite was the Luxie 660 Precision Foundation brush. I use it to set my under eye or sometimes as a highlighting brush.
I have been keeping my entire makeup routine pretty simple lately. Anything that can be quick and easy but still look good is my only goal. I will probably have an updated makeup routine up very soon! Tell me what your favorite products were for last month in the comments! Thank for reading!
