My August Beauty Favourites

I think it's about time I did some more beauty posts to mix things up a bit so I plan to make a regular feature of posting about my favourite products. So, here are the items that I have been mostly using this month

2015 feels like the year of the highlighter. So much so that it has become a key part of my make up routine to give my face a glow and make my cheekbones stand out. Most of the time I just use it on my cheek and brow bones but a tiny bit on both the cupids bow and tip of the nose also helps create a flawless look which translate well in photos. I like to use both cream and powder formulations so thought I would try Topshop Glow in 'Polished' which has a pink iridescent sheen to it. It also looks good on the eyelids for days when you just want to go for a very subtle look. My go to highlighter is High Beam by Benefit but this is a warmer, more subtle alternative.

As I wear quite a bit of make up some days a good cleanser is really important to make sure all traces are removed. I often use Simple Micellar cleansing wipes followed by Garnier micellar water to remove as much make up as possible then before bed I use a cream cleanser such as Bee Good Honey and Propolis cream cleanser with a muslin cloth for a deep clean. The Bee Good range is made by British Bees and uses natural ingredients. The cleanser makes your skin feel very clean and soft and I love the smell

I have always had dark circles under my eyes so any concealer that hides them is a winner in my book. Mac's Studio Finish concealer didn't disappoint and it also lasts all day when set with powder. It has become my favourite concealer which I use most days but not all the time as I don't want to use it all up quickly!

SASS specialise in PH balanced intimate skincare and I've been using the Intimate Soothe & Smooth shave gel on my bikini area. It made shaving a much more pleasant experience and my skin doesn't feel irritated like it usually does after shaving. A day after using it for the first time it even got rid of a long term ingrown hair on my bikini line! It's available in Boots so I'll definitely be stocking up

I will leave you with my current favourite Lush product which is the Frozen bath bomb. It is probably my favourite bath bomb of all time as I love the fresh, uplifting smell, silver glitter and how it turns your bath into a blue, sparkly winter wonderland!
