Five Favorites: August

Five Favorites: August

I don’t know about you all, but I have had a crazy busy August. Most notably, I got a new job and quit my old one! I couldn’t be more thrilled, but any of you who have gone through this will know: no matter how happy you are about the new job, quitting a job is always extremely stressful. I didn’t get a whole lot of sleep this month, so quick and easy was the name of the beauty game for me.

I spent quite a bit of time laying poolside this month – so much so that I actually had to buy new concealer because my old concealer was far too light. I stuck by an old favorite and went with the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard (whereas I’m normally Vanilla). This stuff is awesome. I wore it alone almost every day this month without foundation, so if you splurge on one beauty item, let it be this.

In lieu of foundation, I’ve just been applying a little bronzer and a little highlighter to my cheeks. I received this POPbeauty Bronzer in an Ipsy bag a few months ago, and when paired with a big fluffy brush like the Real Techniques Blush Brush, it gives the perfect glow – not too grey and not too orange. My highlighter of choice these days has been the Jouer’s Highlighter in Tiare, a perfect gold for my warm skin with a tan. I love that it is a pat-it-on-and-go type product.

For the eyes, if I’ve been putting anything on at all, it has been the Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow in 05 Rosy Brown. A Kiko shop just popped up near where I live, and I picked this little bargain up on a whim. It’s super blendable and multidimensional – it looks like you spent hours on your makeup when you actually spent seconds.

So there you have it for August! What have you been loving this month?
