August Favorites

The Body Shop Banana Body Yogurt

2521345

This has been my go-to body moisturizer for Summer especially in August. The consistency of this is so cool. It literally looks like yogurt. It’s a gel based lotion that goes on so smooth and dries almost instantly. Lotions that dry fast are a must for me. I hate the feeling of lotion on my skin especially when I need to get dressed after applying. This is so light-weight and sinks into your skin fast. The smell is incredible as well. It smells just like banana pudding and the smell lasts on your skin for hours. When I apply it at night, I can still smell it the next morning. Personally, I like that.

Colourpop Crème Lux Lipstick in the shade Lay Over

Lay-over-2-a_800x1200

I love the Colourpop Luxe Lips formula and Lay Over has been my staple nude for Summer. Since I am pretty tan, I gravitate towards darker nudes. The formula is very unique. It’s almost feels like a creamy powder and it lasts on my lips for a while. At first I wasn’t keen on the formula, but the more I wore it, the more I realized it’s actually very cool.

Juice Beauty Oil-Free Moisturizer

11288163-1534566723746631

This August I decided to revisit an oldie but a goodie. I discovered Juice Beauty about a year ago and this moisturizer was my holy grail. I hadn’t used it in a while because my acne had cleared up. My acne started coming back at the end of July into August so I decided to try this again. This moisturizer is apart of their blemish clearing range and it definitely works. A little goes a long way because it is a rather thick formula. I love that this hydrates my skin and also treats my acne. Definitely a great clean, organic skincare option for fighting acne.

Too Faced Tutti Frutti Fruit Cocktail Blush Duo in the shade Cherry Bomb

I got this blush towards the end of August but it quickly became my favorite blush of all time. When Too Faced announced their Tutti Frutti collection, I was at first hesitant because Too Faced had been launching products left and right. I thought to myself, uhh another fruit collection. Their peach products were a huge hit but it seemed like people were getting tired of them. There was something about the Tutti Frutti collection that drew me in. I knew I had to try one of the blushes. I opted for the cherry blush because I thought it would transfer well into the autumn season. This blush is incredible. It gives your cheeks are beautiful cherry wine flush and the shimmer side acts as a highlighter that melts perfectly into the blush. I highly recommend these.

July Favorites

BECCA x Chrissy Teigen Endless Bronze & Glow
BC_92576_800x800_3
This highlighter has quickly become my favorite highlighter ever. It includes three shades, two highlighters and a bronzer. I swirl my brush through the whole pan and it gives me the most incredible, warm glow. It looks wet on my skin and it doesn’t accentuate texture. Some people were concerned that the bronzer would mix with the highlight and look weird. I can tell you, it doesn’t do that at all. I don’t want to say the bronzer get’s lost on your face, but the product definitely shows up as a true highlight.

Farmacy Clean Bee Ultra Gentle Facial Cleanser

Farmacy skincare is my favorite skincare line. After trying some of their products and loving them, I made it my mission to try more. I had been using my Juice Beauty face cleanser and I felt like my skin was building up an immunity to it. I don’t know if you ever notice that after you use a product for so long, it seems to stop working. That may just be me. The Clean Bee cleanser is so light and clean. Farmacy uses all natural ingredients so I know my skin isn’t going to get irritated. This leaves my face feeling refreshed and hydrated.

Colourpop Ultra Blotted Lip in the shades Ocean Ave and Vitamin Sea

lips

The Ultra Blotted Lip formula from Colourpop is my favorite lip formula ever. I hate the feeling of lipstick on my lips. I have always been a chapstick or lip balm kind of girl. However, I love putting some color on my lips. This formula is like nothing else. I would describe the finish as if you had a ice pop and it stained your lips. It’s not an actual lip stain, it’s still considered a liquid lipstick, but the formula is so light and velvety. You have to try it for yourself. These two knew shades are stunning! The red shade, Ocean Ave, makes my lips look so healthy and cherry stained. Vitamin Sea is a beautiful warm nude and also makes my lips look so healthy.

Marc Jacobs Beauty O!Mega Bronzer Perfect Tan in the shade Tantric 102

This bronzer is something special. It would say it’s like a smoothing powder and bronzer in one. It is expensive, but I definitely notice it looks different on my skin than my other bronzers. I got the darker shade because I currently have a tan. I wish Marc would release more shades because this shade is almost still too light for me.

Bob Life

If you don’t know from some of my previous hair posts, I have done a lot of damage to my hair over the years. I bleached it in the fall, and recently went back to dark brown this summer. I have fine, thin hair that does not like being long. When my hair is long, the ends get extremely thin, and stringy and break so easily.

Saturday night I was at my aunt’s who just so happens to be a hairdresser. We were talking about my hair and how the ends have been very thin lately. She mentioned a photo of a bob haircut I had posted on my instagram and she thought that would be a great haircut for me.

Two years ago, I got a botched bob haircut that was horrible. I went to some guy’s basement who my ex knew and he literally chopped my hair. It was a short bob with tons of short layers. I felt so ugly. I personally think that if you have thin hair, layers make it look thinner. I had been growing my hair out for two years and since it grows slow normally, it only grew to a little past my shoulders in two years. My layers still hadn’t grown out and I knew the only way I could start from fresh, was to cut my hair again.

So here I am, with a haircut very similar to actress, Lucy Hale right below. I absolutely love it and my hair feels so much thicker. If you have been thinking about doing a bob, I would say go for it. It’s in style and feels amazing. Plus, I think it looks super chic.

Here’s some bob haircut inspiration…

Edition 2: Buy This, Not That – Cruelty Free Dupes

I am obsessed with this cruelty free color dupe! Check out St. Clair from KL Polish as a dupe for Bikini so Teeny from Essie.

Cleansing balms are my favorite way to remove all my makeup. It’s quick and easy and leaves your face feeling clean and hydrated. Check out The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter instead of the Clinique Take the Day Off Balm.

This dupe was a recent find and I have to say, I’m going to make a lot of people happy. The Tom Ford bronzer brush is well known in the beauty community as the “best” bronzer brush. Unfortunately, Tom Ford is not cruelty free and not to mention, super expensive! I came across the Real Techniques 300 Powder Brush and think the shape is so similar. I love the Real Techniques brush and I use it everyday.
