August Favorites 2017

Another month down in the books. I can’t believe we’re already in September!!! The holiday season is approaching and I couldn’t be more excited! Even though Arizona is still so hot and it usually doesn’t start to cool down until late October. You can call me basic if you want, I love me some PSL and pretty much pumpkin everything! Have you seen that they have a Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte!!!!! I’m dying a to try this. I know this is going up later in the month but better late then never right!?

I love using the Ouai Wave Spray to add some texture to my hair! Since I was pregnant all through August I didn’t really like doing my so I just was trying to go the easy route of spraying some wave mist (even though my hair isn’t wavy haha) and going about my day! I love the smell of this too! It doesn’t leave your hair feeling sticky or stiff like some products do.

The MAC Fix+ setting spray is go to for me. I love using it to set my makeup but also for making shimmer eyeshadow way more pigmented. If you add your eyeshadow to the brush and do a spritz of the Fix+ over it and apply to your lid it makes the colors really pop and that extra shimmer!

Do you ever find a product that you just love? No matter what the price it works wonders and you’ll pay whatever it is to use it? That’s exactly how I feel about the Fresh Lip Treatment or you can call it chapstick. It makes your lips feel so moisturized and the smell is amazing! It has an nourishing oil that leaves your lips so soft. It’s great to use before you apply lipstick or if you wear your favorite lip liner put on after to keep your lips hydrated.

I have never really been into eyebrows. Like besides plucking at home I’ve never really done anything else to them..until recently. I never really realized how crazy eyebrow hairs are! I started noticing how unruly they really were. Who would have thought that they made a gel to tame them!?! I got my hands on this Anastasia Beverly Hills brow gel and it has changed my life. Ok, that might be a little dramatic but in all honesty I will not leave my house now without taking care of my eyebrows!

Speaking of lip pencil this MAC lip pencil in the shade Soar has been a must have for me for the past year! It’s the perfect nude shade to line your lips with and use pretty much any lip color over top. I like to use it by lining my lips and then filling them in to add a more matte look that doesn’t transfer. The nice part it because it doesn’t transfer is it is 100% kiss your kids proof. Kiss them all over and it won’t get all over their faces. Like I said with the lip treatment if you feel that you need to add a little moisture back in your lips do a swipe of the lip treatment over the lip pencil and it still looks great!

Last but certainly not least is the Wet n Wild Photo Focus Foundation. It’s one of the best full coverage foundations that I’ve been using for the last 3 months! Because it’s getting to be that time of year that family pictures are being taken, you need this foundation! It not only provides full coverage but it has a light defusing complex that eliminates a white cast from a flash being used. It’s also been tested under 7 different light conditions with and without flash and has passed the test. Because it’s a matte finish I do recommend if you have dry skin to add a moisturizing primer or lotion before applying the foundation so it doesn’t stick to any dry patches.

Let me know if you love using any of these products or what you’re excited to try!
