I’m not quite sure how its already September? Summer is definitely drawing to an end. But if I’m honest, I’m super excited for Autumn/Winter to begin! Anyone else with me? Wool coats, cashmere scarves and endless amounts of hot chocolate are just few of the things I love about the colder months.
As the seasons are transitioning I have been swapping and replacing a few beauty products and I thought I would share them with you on a monthly favourites post. I’m going to be doing this every month so definitely stay tuned.
Giorgio Armani Luminious Silk Foundation
This foundation has became an absolute staple in my makeup bag. The coverage is perfect for my skin- not too heavy yet easily covers any redness or imperfections. It leaves the skin looking flawless but still very natural. The foundation adds a lovely, subtle radiance to the face- perfect for brightening dull winter skin. If you’re wanting a foundation to last all day, then this is the product for you.
YSL Touche Eclat
The Touche Eclat has been a lifesaver this month. Early mornings have caused major dark circles which have quickly been solved by this little product. I use the lightest shade which is a salmon pink that easily neutralises and colour corrects any darkness under the eyes.
Benefit Dandelion Blush
I’ve had this blush for years and only rediscovered it last week after rummaging in the back of my makeup drawer. This is the perfect blush for those who prefer a subtlety flushed cheek. The colour is a ballerina pink which instantly adds radiance to your makeup. The product is easily buildable as a blush and can even be used as an all over brightening, finishing powder. This blush is going to be fab for keeping that summer glow all year round.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush
I’m sorry guys but I had to include this in my August favourites. I’ve talked about this blush repeatedly this month so I’m not going to say too much. But I’ve basically used this everyday of summer and it’s certainly not going anywhere soon. The product adds a beautiful rosy glow to the face that just does not compare to any other blush I’ve used. The formula is super silky and instantly makes your makeup look more luxurious and luminous. I just can’t get enough of it.
Nars Lipliner in Salsa
I have a love/hate relationship with lipliners. Sometimes I think they can look to harsh on the face and other times I think they add a beautiful definition to the lips. However, I’ve recently been absolutely loving this one by Nars which is beautiful plum colour- the perfect shade for moving into Autumn. It’s pretty hard to get a hold of as it’s so popular at the moment but John Lewis often have it in stock.
I recently discovered Maybeline Lipsticks and its safe to say I am obsessed with them. The formulas are super creamy, extremely long-lasting and the shade range is amazing. I’m loving the colour 725 which is a perfect nude for everyday.
Let me know in the comments below what your favourite products of the month are. I’d love to give them a try!
