I always use a lot more makeup and find new products in the month of August, because I am not at school, so I have more time to try out different looks and different products. So, here are my August Favourites.
My first favourite comes from the Urban Decay Naked Palette, and it is the colour Half Baked. I had never used it too much before, but I was watching a tutorial where this colour was used to highlight the inner corners and the brow bone, and I fell in love with the way it looked. Before that I had always used the colour Virgin instead, but I am preferring Half Baked so much at the moment.
My second favourite is two different products, but I love the combination of them. They are the Rimmel Lipliner in Spice and the MAC Lipstick in Kinda Sexy. This month I have been enjoing slightly over lining my lips with this lipliner and then filling them in, and going over the top of it with the lipstick. I love that this lipstick is matte and I love the colour, because it makes your lips look natural but with a hint of colour and a fuller effect.
My third favourite is MAC's Gel Eyeliner. This is the first gel eyeliner that I have owned, and I feel like people's opinions about them can go one of two ways, but I love it. I have been using a small slanted brush to apply it. I've found that it lasts for a long time, and stays in place. Alternatively, it is also great to blend and smudge out for a smoky eye.
My final favourite is the MAC Vanilla Pigment. I know the majority of my favourites from this month have been from MAC, but I bought a lot on holiday and have been enjoying using them. This pigment is one of the first products that I ever heard about from MAC, but I'd never tried it. I bought this little version as it was on offer, and I absolutely love it. It is incredible for highlighting both your eyes and your face. The colour and shimmer are so beautiful.
