August 2015 Favorites!

I've been really good this month trying to rotate my makeup and actually using what I have! Plus, it helped that the theme this month for me was laziness keeping things minimal and simple. By the way, I'm beyond ready for September and the beginning of fall weather! Who else is a fall gal?! Anyways, here are products I've been using the most this month!

For my go to base, I've actually strayed away from foundation for a little while and opted for the Maybelline Dream Pure BB in Light instead! It's light but still has decent coverage for a BB cream, and doesn't turn me into a total grease ball since it has salicylic acid in it.

What I've been using to set my BB cream and to add a little more coverage is the Maybelline Dream Wonder Powder in Ivory. It's a really nice drugstore powder that is so smooth and buttery soft! One of my favorite powders to use for sure.

The bronzer I've been gravitating towards is the Pop Beauty Sunkissed Bronzer in Secret Sunshine. I got this a forever ago in an Ipsy bag and I just rediscovered it this month! It is a wonderful golden brown bronze shaed that has shimmer in it but it's not too crazy, giving the skin a sunkissed glow. Sadly, I can't find it on their website. :( Maybe it can be hunted down on Amazon.

Despite the strobing trend, I've been scaling back on the BAM-in-your-face highlight and using my Wet n' Wild Color Icon Reserve Your Cabana "Bronzer". I've talked about it many times, and it's one of my all time face powders that can be dusted all over the face for an all over natural glow or concentrated on the high points to highlight. It's under $4 dollars, and it's a product everyone needs in their collection I think!

Aaaaaand my obsession with Smith's Rosebud Perfume Co. Minted Rose Lip Balm is still going strong from last month. It's just so good.

My last favorite is the e.l.f Smudge Pot in Cruisin' Chic, a cream taupe shadow that I've been loving, especially on those days when I am not in the mood to blend out a million shadows. I just throw this on my whole lid, buff it out a bit with a transition shade in the crease and I'm good to go! These Smudge Pots are so affordable and do not budge all day.

What are your August favorites!?
