August Favourites

by beautyofhistory

So, August has officially ended and it is now September- where has the time gone? Soon Autumn will be settling in and it will be time to say goodbyes to my summer favourite products.  So here are my favourite products of August:

Bare Minerals foundation- when going out during the day this is a super light foundation which stays put but also has great coverage. I also use this when my skin is acting up and want to prevent any heavy foundation from settling in.

As you can tell, I’ve used this eye shadow A LOT!

17 Yeah Baby Eye Shadow (Vintage) – I got this years ago from Boots and have kept it ever since because it is the most gorgeous Champagne Gold colour and is pretty pigmented too. It gives a beautiful glow over the eyes and literally makes them ‘pop’. It’s a colour I only really use in summer but now I think of it, it totally could transfer to Autumn/Winter too. I team this with another eye shadow trio I got from Boots.  I use the darkest colour on this mini pallet and blend it into the crease of my eye with a fluffy brush.

This has a really nice thick consistency but absorbs into the skin surprisingly well

Heathcote and Ivory Vintage Hand Cream- this smells amazing! I bought this from a small shop in Monks Eleigh which is a small village in Suffolk. I also bought one for a friend too as I couldn’t resit! It has a wonderful Rose sent but unlike a lot of Rose scented creams it also has a real nourishing aspect to it. As it contains Shea Butter (my hero ingredient) it teams together both scent and practicality. I love the bottle and will be taking this all the way through to Autumn/Winter 2012 because of the fact it has Shea Butter. Although I love my L’occitane Shea Butter cream I find that it is definitely more of an Autumn/Winter hand cream whereas this one totally works for Summer.
