Another month has passed and I only just realised that I Have never done a favourites post on my blog before! Welcome to my August Monthly Favourites 2015, hopefully the first of many favourites posts to come.
Recently I attended a Real Techniques event and was (so luckily) gifted the Bold Metals Set. I love all of the brushes and if you want to see the brushes that first tickled my fancy as well as close ups, you can read that post here. The particular brush that I have really been in love with the month of August is the Bold Metals Brush #300 Tapered Blush*. The thing is though that I haven’t been using this brush for blush, but actually highlighter! I have never really had a good brush that gets the right amount of highlight on and just wisps it across the top of my cheeks – until now. It’s amazing how much of a difference a good brush makes because I have tried some of my highlighters before and they barely showed up. Now, completely different story.
Next up is the Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Concealer In Medium*. I particularly love this concealer on the days when I go to university because instead of opting for a liquid foundation, I use powder. I feel like this concealer is amazing at brightening my under eye area and isn’t too dramatic for everyday use. It does not cling to my powder foundation and my under eye area is left feeling beautiful and smooth. What else can I ask for!?
When it comes to nail polishes, I find that I am definitely a creature of habit. One of my all time favourites that hasn’t made a bit of an appearance in a while is Essie’s Chinchilly. This month I was feeling inclined more towards neutrals, therefore this baby made quite a few appearances in August.
Winter is the time my hair screams out for help and conditioner isn’t sufficient enough to resuscitate my ends. Instead, I love opting for a hair mask or treatment. In August, the Goldwell Dualsenses Colour Extra Rich 60Sec Treatment* did not leave my shower, or my every washing-my-hair-day-routine. This stuff is now definitely a MUST for me. Aside from smelling so incredibly delicious, this treatment works so so so quickly and I feel like even 60 seconds is generous. If you have oily hair and you’re scared of your head turning into an oily heap, please my friend do not be worried. Aside from also having oily skin, ya gurl Katina has oily hair too and this product does not add additional oil, just incredible moisture and life.
