August Makeup Favorites

Hello! Can you believe it’s already September? geez, august just flew by and now here we are looking forward to fall! I mean, I’m excited about cooler weather, are you?

Today, I’m going to take a look at august and go over a few things I’ve been loving to put on my face this past month! and speaking of makeup — Sephora’s insider sale is still going on through Monday, so make sure you check out my latest post on what *I think* you should purchase!

So without further ado, lets get into what I’ve been in love with this past month!

Becca Ultimate Coverage 24 Hour Wear Foundation; $44

So, I’ll readily admit that I am a make-aholic as well as a super picky makeup user — and I have to say, pretty much unequivocally that this is the best foundation on the market. There. It’s out there for the world to see. It’s nice and light weight but the coverage. good lord, the coverage. If you are a full coverage queen, this is the foundation you need in your life.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette; $42

I have been giving this palette some love this month! Its the perfect transition from summer to fall with the muted colors and beautiful shimmers. I brought it with me here on vacation and it’s such a great travel palette! LOVE!

MORPHE x Jaclyn Hill: The Vault Collection; $49

Speaking of awesome palettes, if you are a fan of inexpensive but awesome makeup (and why wouldn’t you be?) then this vault collection is something you should definitely check out! I think the price for each palette (and you get 4 in the vault) is something like $15 each which is a steal for the level of pigment and color range you get. They’re easy to travel with and they all have mirrors, which is great!

Clarisonic MIA Smart 3 & 1 Device; $199

So I received and email about mid-month about this new product from clarisonic and how, for a limited time, you could trade in your old device for the new upgraded MIA — so of course, you know your girl had to jump on that! I love my clarisonic and use it pretty much every day, so I thought I would give the new one a shot. So far, so good. I love the different settings and it even can connect to your phone via Bluetooth and the Clarisonic app to help give your face the cleaning it deserves. Highly recommend upgrading if you can!

FRESH Rose Face Mask; $62

This is such a soothing, lightweight face mask. My skin always feels extra hydrated and smoothed after I use it. Its safe enough to use every day, but I usually only use it twice a week. Now, if you don’t like the way roses smell, you may not like this face mask, because it does really smell like roses, but! If you do like that scent, or you don’t mind floral scents, then this face mask may work out for you. You can grab a sample at Sephora and I always recommend testing out face masks on a small part of your face or neck, particularly if you have sensitive skin.

Moroccan Oil Dry Shampoo; $26

I recently began coloring my hair again and I’ve been looking for some new dry shampoo that wont weigh my hair down or make it crunchy, or make it greasy — you know that blow-dry needs to last at least 3 days! So while I was at the hair salon this past week I was introduced to this product by Moroccan Oil and so far I love it! It come in two types; light tones and dark tones so you can pick the one that’s best for you.  It doesn’t weigh my hair down but it really does help it smell and feel clean — even when it’s not.  🙂

So that’s about it! Just a quick list of some things I’ve been loving this past month! Stay tuned because I’ve got a great recipe for you tomorrow!

Happy September!

XO,
Danielle
