August 2017 Favorites + Face

August 2017 Favorites+ Face

I know, it’s Friday! And you might be wondering what I’m doing here, Friday isn’t one of my usual days to blog on and this isn’t a post that I would forget about seeing as I do it every month. I have put myself on a new schedule, pretty much for the same reasons as last time, I have so many ideas and so much content that I can’t get it out fast enough. However, I can not daily blog because that is something that I just couldn’t keep up with, so because of that I have settled on five days a week. I’ve done this before but I’m hoping to stick to it, I guess we’ll see how it went in the month of October, but until then you will be seeing me on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday!

Anyway, enough of my rambling about schedules and all of those boring things, it’s the start of a new month which means that it is time for some monthly favorites and face, so let’s just jump right on into this one.

PSX_20170826_172653

Milk Makeup Blur Stick – This is just a little sample size but I love this one! I have another little sample of it and once I’m through them I’m probably really going to debate purchasing a full size. This does not work like a primer if you ask me, it doesn’t really prolong the wear of my makeup, but it does make my face look poreless and smooth, it blurs if you will. The only downfall is the smell, it smells chemical and I don’t like it, it’s not too bad though.

NYX Blotting Powder in Light  – I think you can see that this is well loved, this has been my go to powder as of recently. I don’t think this is anything outlandish or out there, but it’s a nice powder and I’m happy with it.

Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara – This has been my new favorite mascara, especially combined with the product below, it just makes my lashes super wow and great. This is very black, it doesn’t really clump up that much and it makes my lashes super long.

L’oreal Voluminous Primer Mascara  – I have weird feelings about this, sometimes I wonder if this is really doing things for me but other times I know that it for sure is doing something, especially when paired with the mascara above. I have tried this with one other mascara and it just clumped up my lashes majorly, so I guess this one is something that you have to play around with in terms of which products you can use it with.

Pixi Glow Tonic Toner  – I love this stuff way more than I ever thought I would, this is my second bottle and I’m glad I kept using it. This makes my skin feel so soft and smooth, it also gives me a little bit of a glow I think, and I love that! This combined with the two cleansers I use is just a perfect combination, so I think I’m getting closer to my perfect skincare routine.

J.Cat Beauty Dry Makeup Brush Cleaner – This is something I didn’t think I would really need, I was using a hair doughnut and I think it was working just fine, however, I ordered this because I was curious and had my eye on it for quite some time and I’m glad that I did. I think this works better than my little hair doughnut and it catches all of the shadows fall out in the container, this is a fantastic purchase and a great bargain.

Mac Trip The Light Fantastic Powder in Strange New Worlds – This is the only product I couldn’t link because it is limited edition, some people don’t like to share limited edition product on their blogs due to lack of being able to get your hands on them, but sometimes I just really like a product and need to share it. This is a really light blush on me or a really great cheek topper, but I’m very favorable of it.

Tonymoly Peach Punch Sweet Foam Cleanser – This is something that I just started using this month even though I bought it months ago, but I guess it’s better late than never. I love this stuff! It has a really faint peachy scent, I personally find it gentle enough to use around my eyes and it leaves my skin feeling so clean, plus this is really affordable so really it’s win-win.

 

Eyes: Lorac Behind The Scenes Eye Primer, Carli Bybel Deluxe Edition Palette, Rimmel Exaggerate Waterproof Eyeliner in Noir, Physicians Formula Eye Booster 2-In-1 Lash Boosting Eyeliner + Serum in Ultra Black, L’oreal Voluminous Base Mascara and Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara. Face: Milk Makeup Blur Stick, Mac Strobe Cream, Dr. Jar+ Beauty Balm in Light/Medium, Catrice Liquid Camouflage High Coverage Concealer in Light Neutral, NYX Blotting Powder in Light, Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer, Mac Trip The Light Fantastic Powder in Strange New Worlds and treStique Highlight Stick. Lips: Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Audition.

And that is the face that I chose for this month, this time around I kind of did a hybrid of creating a looking and picking a look out the represented the month. I think this month had a pretty good mix of products in it, both new and older and all things that I’m really loving.

What are some of your favorites from August?

Engagement Photo Makeup

Engagement Photo Makeup

I know I just did a makeup look of sorts the other day, a full face using only Nyx brand makeup, but I’m back with another makeup look. As you may know, I’m getting married this year and we’re thinking about doing engagement photos, so I’ve been thinking about what to wear, how to do my hair and things like that, which means I’m going to show off what looks like will be my makeup for the photos. We will be taking photos outside and it’s going to be fairly casual, so I didn’t over do it and kept it fairly simple I think. Let me show you what I’m thinking about doing.

I like this look, I think this is a really simple but fresh look, I think this is something that I could wear just about anywhere, in fact, I wore it to work the other day and I think it was even perfect for that. Granted, where I work no one really seems to care what I wear in terms of makeup, but I still think this is overall a really work appropriate makeup look. Now, here’s some close ups of the eye and then I’ll list all of the products that I used down below it.

 

Too Faced Shadow Insurance

Wet ‘N Wild Contouring Palette in Dulce De Leche

Anastasia Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette in Golden Ochre, Warm Taupe, and Cyprus Umber

Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Sin

Makeup Geek Eyeshadow in Shimma Shimma

Milani Liquid Eye Eyeliner in Black

Physicians Formula Eye Booster Eyeliner in Ultra Black

Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara in Black

Rimmel Exaggerate Eyeliner in In The Nude

Benefit The Porefessional

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer in Light Bronzer

Milani Baked Blush in Bella Bellini

Wet ‘N Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder in Precious Petals

Maybelline Fit Me Powder in Porcelain

Milani Make It Last Setting Spray

Nyx Butter Gloss in Madeleine

And that is everything that I used, a really good mix of high end and drugstore products, along with some new things which you may know if you saw my huge Ulta Haul I posted on Tuesday, I was itching to try out at least a few of the new things and they seemed like perfect fits here. So far, I like everything but I’ll have more in-depth reviews of products at some point in time.

What do you guys think of this look?
