August Makeup Favorites
My favorites this month centered around warm brown colors for the eyes and a newfound old foundation love. I rediscovered Chanel Perfection Lumiere in B20 (reviewed here) and enjoyed the light, long-lasting, and matte formula. The color is not as good of a match for me as NARS Sheer Glow, however it's a reasonable one now that my summer skin is warmer than usual. I also found that my skin breaks out less when I wear Chanel Perfection Lumiere. Illamasqua Naked Rose (reviewed here) was my go-to blush this month. I used MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Brow in #25 Ash (formula reviewed here) for my brows. It's easy to apply, and is long lasting. It does fade towards the end of my workday, but less than the powder I was using previously. MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Shadow in #2E (formula reviewed here) is a dark brown color that I used as a thickly drawn eyeliner. Simply Vera Vera Wang Transforming Eyeshadow Duo in #404 was my most used eyeshadow palette (reviewed here). NARS Lola Lola eyeshadow single (purchased at the NARS 413 Bleecker flagship store) is a gorgeous neutral brown that leans a hint red. MAC Satin Taupe eyeshadow is a classic color that I just purchased. I used it for looks that were slightly cooler than the other browns. My favorite lipstick was MAC Pure Zen, a nude peachy pink from the recent MAC Cremesheen and Pearl Collection. It could be my favorite MAC color yet!
Thanks for reading! What foundation are you using lately? What kind of colors have you been reaching for?
