Top Picks for August

I’ve been really loving a lot of drugstore products this month, which is awesome because all of my favorites are super affordable! Since I am the definition of a broke college student, I try to stay away from using a ton of high-end products and I only buy pricey makeup when it’s something I love. I think drugstore makeup has improved so much over time and I’m so happy that so many different products work for me!

Starting off with skincare, I’ve been loving the Cetaphil Facial Cleanser when I wash my face lately. I typically break out a lot when I’m back at school because of the stress and very little sleep, but this stuff has kept my skin so clear! I’ve only been using it for a little over a month, but I’ve noticed that my skin looks a million times better than it did last year. It’s very light on my skin and I can feel that it’s cleansing my face. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who needs a new cleanser!

Next is base makeup. I don’t usually switch up my base too often, but I’ve been trying out a few new products in the last month or so. My ultimate favorite foundation right now is the Maybelline Superstay Full Coverage Foundation. They weren’t lying when they said full coverage, let me tell you! It covers everything, including my super red-toned skin, and makes full-coverage look natural. Not only does it look beautiful when you first apply it, but it also lasts all day. I used to work long hours at a restaurant, where I would be running around for hours at a time, and I would still get compliments on my complexion at the end of my shift. This stuff is magic in a bottle!

Finally, I have the eye makeup. Obviously, this is my favorite part of doing my makeup, so I’ve tried out a ton of new products to find my favorites. Starting with some eyeshadow, I’ve been so obsessed with the 35O2 palette by Morphe. This is a warm-toned palette with mostly neutral colors, but it also has a few pops of red and orange. I’ve been loving warmer looks lately, and this has been my go-to all month! I did a short review of this palette a while ago, which you can read here. It’s an absolutely beautiful palette and you can create so many different looks with it!

I’ve also been using a Maybelline mascara and it’s my new favorite. The Colossal Mascara is amazing and I get a ton of compliments on my eyelashes every time I use it! The brush is easy to use, it makes my lashes look so long, and it’s ridiculously affordable! I use this mascara in the shade “glam brown” because I like it to look a little softer to compliment my fair skin and hair. I could rave about this mascara all day, but I’m sure you’ve already heard about how awesome Maybelline mascaras are!

These are all my favorite beauty products for the month of August! I love so many different products, so picking a few favorites was really hard for me. These are just the ones that I’ve been reaching for every single day and that I know others will love too. If you’ve tried any of these products, let me know what you think of them!

Before I end this post, I just wanted to update everyone really quick. It’s been a crazy first few weeks of the semester, so I haven’t had as much time to work on blog posts as I would like. I’m still working on a lot of different posts, though, and I’m excited to be able to share them with all of you. I have some more eyeshadow tutorials that I’m really excited for you to see, some more palette reviews, and a few more colorful eye looks that you’ll love! Everything’s coming soon and I’m working as hard as I can to make them absolutely perfect! Thanks again for continuing to read my blog and supporting me!
