August Beauty Favorites





Oh my goodness this year is seriously flying by!! Isn't it so crazy how the older you get the faster and faster time goes by. Realizing this has made me want to cherish every moment and really take the time to enjoy the simple things in life! With that being said, its time for my monthly beauty favorites! Ok ok so beauty products probably shouldn't be considered the "simple" things, but they do make me happy and life is all about being happy. Right! :) 

1. Bobbi Brown Bronzer in Medium 2 - This is definitely my new favorite bronzer. I have not put this one down since the day I got it! It is so smooth and natural looking and blends into the skin flawlessly. It has no shimmer and does not look muddy on the skin at all. Its great for an everyday bronze and contour! 

2. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal- Love, love, love, this highlighter! It is the perfect golden champagne highlight. This product is very pigmented and gives such a great sheen to the skin without being chalky or glittery! 

3. Buxom Vanity Lash Mascara- Soooo I'm not going to lie to y'all...yes the main reason I bought this mascara was just because of the cute packaging! haha I have been using this mascara for the last couple of weeks though and really like it! I think it is really cool that you get to choose from 7 different wands. I got the strong and long wand and I do think that it does a great job at lengthening my lashes but I wouldn't say this is my holy grail mascara. 

4. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla- I have been using and loving this concealer non stop for my under eye area. It is very creamy and hydrating but does not settle into fine lines. This is also great for brightening up around your eye area and concealing dark circles. Mine is almost out now and I will definitely be repurchasing this product! 

5. Benefit Gimme Brow Light/Medium- Ok so if you do not fill in your brows you need to be! I used to be so scared of touching my brows and filling them in because I naturally have thick eyebrows anyways, but it is seriously one of the best things that you can do in your beauty routine! It does not have to look like you just drew them on your face and that is what I love about this product. It makes doing your brows so quick and easy because you simply just brush this through your brows and your done! It has tiny little fibers that thicken your brows and is also tinted to help give the look of fuller brows....and full brows frame your face and are so in right now! Please do not pluck your eyebrows into a skinny little line Please! :) I normally use the Anastasia Brow wiz and set that with this product but when I am running late and in a hurry this is a great one step product! 

6. Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo in #3- I bought this because I saw it on Jessica Scantlin's (Jessie James makeup artist/ bestie from Jessie and Eric on E!) insatgram @jesssouthern. I seriously love both of them and get so much inspiration from them both (and it doesn't hurt that they are southern girls at heart)! She posted that this is what she had worn in one of her pictures and I loved how it looked so of course I had to run out and get it!! I love nude lipsticks and this one does not disappoint. I love that it is in a crayon form because it makes it so easy to keep in your purse and apply throughout the day. This is a very creamy and pigmented lipstick with a semi-matte/ satin finish so it stays great but does not dry out your lips!

7. Mac Lip Pencil in Boldly Bare- Love this lip pencil and Mac lip pencils in general!! This is a perfect lip pencil to pair with nude lipsticks and I have actually been wearing this alone all over my lips lately for that kind of  Kylie Jenner Lip look.

8. Evian Mineral Water Spray- I bought this when I went back to Texas a couple of weeks ago because I knew that it would be scorching hot and that we would be walking around outside a lot! I wanted to get this so that I could have something to keep in my purse to be able to mist my face with to help cool off and keep my makeup set. This did a great job! It is cooling and refreshing and I have still been using it throughout the day to keep my skin feeling hydrated.

9. Neutrogena Makeup Remover Wipes- I decided to switch to these the last time that I went to pick up makeup wipes and I am really happy that I did! These have been great at taking off all of my makeup easily at night and do not burn my eyes or irritate my skin. I was using the Simple Makeup Wipes and now that I have been using these I think my skin has actually cleared up a little! I got the night calming version and love them!

10. Last but not least the most important favorite of August is Y'all!! I have just started this journey of blogging and although I haven't yet managed to be able to stick to a good routine with fitting in time for regular blogging I really appreciate anyone who takes the time to read any of my post!! Even if it's just a few people that are reading this I really enjoy sharing my opinions on products that I love and little bits of my life with other people! Hopefully I am able to help someone and connect with new people along the way. :) I would love for you to leave comments if you ever have any questions,  recommendations, or even just to say hi... you do not have to have a blog to comment so please feel free to ask me any questions that you might have below!!


Thank Y'all soooo sooo much for taking the time to stop by!!
