August Favourites

I know I’m a bit late, but better late then never, right?

Since having Josh the month’s are flying by, It will soon be Christmas & then Josh will be 1 please slow down, just a little bit?

Onto the favourites;


Real Techniques buffing brush;

Since having this brush (around 4/5 months) I haven’t used any other brush to apply my foundation, I use it every single day as I love the finish it gives to any foundation I use! & it washes really well too, bonus.

Real Techniques blush brush;

Same as above since buying this brush It’s the only brush I use to apply blusher as It gives just the right amount of product to my cheeks and It’s super soft! Love this!

Lauren Luke flat contour brush;

I use this brush for my highlighter & its the perfect size to apply the right amount to your cheek bones! Its lovely and soft and super cheap too!

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation

I love this foundation, I was shopping my stash & thought I would give it a go as It had been sat in my make up draw for ages! & I’m glad I did, It gives such a nice finish, It’s nice to apply & It lasts pretty much all day. Even my mum commented on how my foundation really suited me (this never happens!)

LOreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara & Bourjois Elastic Mascara

I think both of these mascaras do exactly the same job, they make my eyelashes super long! There both lengthening mascaras and there the best I have tried! They separate and elongate my lashes. I use them both first before applying another one to thicken my lashes! 

Benefit Powda Wowza

I now realise I didn’t take a picture of the inside (mummy brain – can I still blame my dopiness on this?) but basically it has three face powders Coralista, Bella Bamba & Hoola. I use hoola to contour as its the perfect shade for me and I swirl a mixture of coralista and bella bamba and use as blush! Gives you a pretty rosy glow.

St Tropez Skin Illuminator Gold

I mix this with Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation I put them both on the back of my hand, mix them both together with the real techniques buffing brush and apply! My skin glows after and I love the look you achieve when doing this. You can also you this to highlight your cheek bones or whatever but I’m to lazy for that.

Boots Build Up Removal Shampoo (for some reason I can’t find It on the website!)

I love this stuff, I can’t live without it. My hair always gets greasy no matter what I use on it. It always looks weighed down or sticky If I use a little to much conditioner, or If I use the same products for a while! (anyone else get this problem?) This is my savour! It completely cleans out my hair and makes it go back to being squeaky clean! I use this every Sunday or If my hair needs a good clean!

No7 Total Renewal Micro dermabrasion Face Exfoliator

& last but not least number 7’s face exfoliator. I use this around every 2/3 days just to give my face a good scrub! You know when you sometimes put face cream on, and it feels like your skin peels off with it? (or is that again just me?) haha I know then that I really need to use a face scrub, and this gets rid of all your dead skin cells and leaves you with a super soft brighter face!

Can I add in another cheeky all time favourite?

Didn’t know you could love such a little person so much! & doesn’t he look the cutest in his Manchester United top?
