Well hello there!
Today I have for you my August Favourites! I cannot believe it is September now, I must say this every moth but the year is just flying by. Real talk I am so excited for Autumn now and I have certainly had enough of the summer weather.

I have been using this for around 6 weeks now and I am in love with this foundation. It has such nice coverage, it's not too full its more medium but you can definitely build it to full. It is completely oil-free which I love as my t-zone can get real oily throughout the day, it has hyaluronic acid in it which helps to hydrate the skin so this is not a drying matte formula. This does not last as long as a matte foundation would on my skin but I prefer this formula as it is better for my skin type. This is high end but not the most expensive foundation on the market as this retails for £29.

I do not wear eye shadow every single day but when I do I will always use this brush to blend out the edges of the shadow. It is a tall tapered brush that effortlessly blends out the edges to make it look all blown out and pretty. No matter if I am using high end or drugstore eye shadows, this brush works an absolute treat and would definitely recommend. I got this in a set but you can buy this separately and it only costs £4.99!

As you know I love Sophdoesnails, she is one of my favourite YouTubers. She has now done a few collaborations with Revolution and they get better every time. Sophie come out with another eye shadow palette (Extra Spice), and along with this she brought out 3 nude lipsticks. The formula is so nice with these, they aren't drying matte they're beautifully creamy. They are also very pigmented, Cake is by far my favourite as it is a pinky nude shade. These lipsticks are so cheap as they retail for just £4.

My skin type is combination so when dry it can look very cakey and powdery, well this fixing spray certainly saves the day for me! It just melts all of my makeup together and because it has hydrating properties in it, it gives me that little bit of moisture back into my skin. I spray a lot onto my face just wave it dry and walah, my face looks like how I wish it would look all the time. You can get this on the Revolution Beauty website or Boots and this retails for £6.

So those were my August Favourites.
Thank you so much for reading,
