August Favourites


Oh hello is that the end of August already? Weird to think I'll be heading back to uni in a few weeks, and not only that but I'm going to have my first teaching placement. Woaaaaah scary! I just hope I don't get mistaken for one of the pupils! Anyways, these are some of the things I've been loving/using to death this month. 

First up is my Real Techniques Stippling Brush. I've been going for a lighter base during the summer and this brush has helped me massively in creating a gorgeous flawless canvas. This brush is amazing for the likes of BB creams and light coverage foundations! Oh and to hydrate my skin perfectly before I even apply my make up I've been using the Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet which is pretty incredible! I've already raved about this in my review, and its just a really great product if you want your skin to stay hydrated and look amazing underneath all of your make up. Another newbie to add to the list is the Rimmel Brow This Way eyebrow mascara. I was actually debating whether to put this in my favourites as it does have a few cons, but I've literally been wearing this every single day since I got it so it must be good stuff! 

Next is my good old MUA Undressed palette, which contains so many gorgeous shades, and I seem to reach for this more than any of my other high end palettes, including my Urban Decay palettes!! I've also had a few nasty break outs this month due to changing my contraception so the Quick Fix Anti-Blemish Mud Mask has been my saving grace, and helped to quickly get rid of all those pesky little blighters that keep popping up. Oh and I don't know if you guys know but I'm completely obsessed with TBS Moringa Scent at the moment so this is The Body Mist which I've been using daily. It smells amazing! 

Last but not least, I've been using the Toni and Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray*, which I actually got in a goody bag at their store in Glasgow. I've had really bad experiences with Sea Salt Sprays so I wasn't expecting to like this, but actually its amazing! It adds lots of texture and volume to my hair which is very much needed at the minute! 


I wanted to tell you guys about my non-beauty favourites this month too! So, if you didn't already know I'm really into reading and one of my favourite authors is Stephen King. I read The Shining a few years ago so I was super excited when this sequel came out. Doctor Sleep is actually a lot different from the first book, but definitely worth a read; I couldn't put this down! I've also got a huge sweet tooth, and my main addiction is chocolate! I've been absolutely loving the Green and Black's Butterscotch flavour, which is sooooo yummy! These are also pretty tiny so they satisfy my cravings perfectly without me over indulging! 

Thats everything I have been loving this month! What have you been loving in August?
