August Favourites | Beauty

Hey all! I skipped out July.. actually July skipped me out, but I'm here for my August Favourites! Before we get into it, let's not forget this week's Weekly Wednesday Blog Hop. I've been so busy (I really need another word for it really), that I haven't been able to reach as many of the lovely blogs on this hope as I'd like. But hopefully I do this week! This is a really great hop, so be sure to click the button and check out the linky list :).

I have been killing my Maybelline MasterShape brow pencil, spoken about in my June Favourites. It's just the easiest most fool-proof way to groom your brows. Even in a hurry. I run the waxy crayon through my brows, brush through with the spoolie end, set with my e.l.f. clear brow gel and mascara duo (which is running low) then head out. That easy!

Next, I am loving the Smashbox Photo Op eyeshadow trio that I reviewed here. It's so easy to wear everyday and the colours are lovely. I've switched from my BB cream and had been trying out a foundation, when I remember I had this powder foundation from Coastal Scents in my makeup collection. It's really easy to wear, just use a fluffy brush for light coverage. It's light-weight and does a good job at keeping me matte for a few hours in Barbados heat, and stays especially well with a primer.

Again I've been loving my e.l.f. Blush and Bronzer kit, this time using the blusher more often. I like the nice flush it gives. I got tons on compliments on it! This bright pink lipstick has also been making quite an impression this month too. Whenever I feel like wearing lipstick, I just swipe on a bit of Daddy's Little Girl and I'm ready to head out feeling all put together!

For most of August and July I was wearing my BCBG bracelets to death. I mean I seriously had to stop myself. I'm such a klutz that when I least expect it, I'd scratch them. And I really don't want them looking too beat up. So I've put them to rest a bit. Maybe next month I'll be loving some new jewellery.

As for scent, this month and all summer basically I've been living in Bali Mango by BBW. The bodyspray was on sale back in May when I visited the US and I think I saw it on the website up to this month still on sale. It is one of the most yummy scents ever. If you like sweet scents with a hint of acidity, you would like this. Everyone compliments me when I'm wearing this haha.

Finally, it's not a usual happening of mine, but I stumbled across a singer while I was watching AprilAthena7's YouTube channel. I heard a song in one of her more recent videos that I loved. She had the link in her description, so I checked it out the artist (Charity Vance)and I love the music! She has such girly upbeat music, it makes me happy. Check Charity Vance out here on her site and take a listen. Her voice is beautiful! One of my favourites from her album is "Moving too Fast (The World Spins)".
