August Favorites ♡

Hi ladies, welcome back to my blog.

As we are now welcoming September and the fall season, I thought it would be a good time to share my most used products for the month of August.


It was just so hot and humid here in New York this summer that I really didn’t want any heavy foundations and powders on my skin.  Instead I found the perfect light weight combo to keep
my face matte and give it some coverage as well.  Maybelline’s Baby Skin face primer along with their BB Cream in medium/deep.  These kept my skin looking flawless no matter how hot it got and never felt like too much on my face.  My next favorite would be my Sonia Kashuk 15th Anniversary Limited Ed. Brushes.  They apply any type of makeup flawlessly and effortlessly.   They are hard to find but they are definitely worth the hunt.  For the eye’s I’ve been obsessed with the Amezy Palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills, L’Oréal Miss Manga mascara, and Milani Bella Eyes gel shadow.  The Amezy Palette has every shade you possibly need to create endless looks and I love how affordable it is.  Miss Manga is such a great mascara to literally coat and extend every lash to give them that extra wow factor, and the Milani shadow’s are so beautifully pigmented and stay put all day.  Lastly, my favorites for kissable lips are LA Girl Cosmetics lip glaze in Whimsical, and Gerard Cosmetics lip glosses in Shimmer of Hope and Butter Cream.  The lip glaze goes on so smooth and leaves a fresh minty feeling on your lips, and the glosses from Gerard Cosmetics are just amazing. I say everyone needs these in their lives. I don’t know why it took me so long to try them but I’m glad I did.  The new packaging is gorgeous and elegant, and the light and mirror are great for easy application anytime anywhere.

I will be posting full reviews and swatches of the glosses on my blog very soon.

On that note, hello fall 🙂

Thank you for reading
