I cant believe its September tomorrow, I feel like this year is wizzing right by. Summer has been amazing, we luckily had a good few weeks of lovely weather which is pretty rare for up north but I've loved every second of it.
I've found it a little difficult to pick out a few favourites for this month but have narrowed it down to four and 1 recent purchase that i'm really loving.
Loreal - Lumi Magique Pure light primer - When summer comes around i always look for products that make my skin look glowy. Unfortunately my skins been really bad recently with a lot of break outs which leave scares so I've been trying anything that can make it look a little healthier. I picked this little gem up from boots a while ago and have used it literally every day. Its a illuminating primer that leaves your foundation looking gorgeous and healthy. I apply it generously all over my face, colour correct any red blemishes/ acne scares then layer foundation on top. Its light weight, allows application of products to go on smoothly and feels amazing. Its an amazing base for summer and will make skin look healthier and i bet it will look great through winter as well.
Beauty blender - I wrote a first impressions post on this a few weeks ago but I still think its great so decided it deserves a little mention. It applies foundation and concealer so well and never leaves makeup looking cakey.Its easy to use and cuts my foundation routine down by alot! It also washes really well, i use shampoo as i do when washing all my makeup brushes and found that it doesn't soak up as much product as my other sponges would. The one thing i will mention that I don't like about this is the stain my foundation has left on the bottom of it but i suppose this cant really be avoided when using liquid products.
Nivea lip butter - caramel cream - I picked this up because i forgot my lip balm one day for work, I actually only got it because it was cheap and cute but its great. It smells exactly like caramel and I want to eat it! Its moisturising and soothes cracked lips really well which will be a great with winter coming up .It acts as a great primer for lipstick and I've found that it keeps my lips moisturised a lot more than other lip balms would when wearing matte lipsticks.
MAC - Springsheen - Springsheen is a coral/ pink blush with a gold sheen through it, Its one of my favourite blushes i have purchased from MAC; it leaves an amazing rose flush to the cheeks and looks great on many different skin tones too which is a great bonus for any makeup artists kit!
Red Rose - MUA - Superdrugs MUA range is affordable and really good quality for the price, its probably the reason I keep going back to check out the new products. This is a new favourite but I'm obsessed with it so thought I'd mention it anyway. Its a pretty red shade which looks best when applied with two coats but I think the reason I love it so much is because it reminds me of a nail varnish my mum used to wear when I was younger, I think its just so pretty and sophisticated.
