My August Top 5

1.  All-In-One Makeup Kit
* MaqPro Palette Fard Creme; $25; *

Hidden inside the inconspicuous box is everything you need to be makeup ready. Made of the “fard creme” based on natural wax, Maqpro’s oldest formula, the fard creme palette is a must-have. This gorgeous palette from France of multi-use highly pigmented cream pigments  contains a prime base for eyes & face, an eye brightener, color correctors, cream contour, highlighter, cream blush, cream eyeshadow, and lip color! A favorite product of YouTube’s makeup guru Wayne Goss of gossmakeupartist—this little wonder boasts great pigmentation, a blending dream, multiple uses and is available in over 200 shades! A little pricey, but so worth the money…I’m saving up for more palettes😊



2. Eye Dream
* e.l.f Jumbo Eyeshadow Stick in Feeling Lucky; $2; *

These twist up chubby pencil sticks can be used to line and shade with. They are a cream formula with a gorgeous, easy to apply and blend formulation so you can use them as an all over eyeshadow, eyeliner, or as a base for powders. For a quick day to night transformation, I use this stick as eyeshadow for day, then I use it as an eyeliner to define my eyes for night for a  colorful smoky eye made easy!


3. Sweet cheeks
* e.l.f HD Blush in Encore; $3; *


We all can’t have Charlize Theron’s bone structure, but we can certainly fake it with this cream blush. It renders your cheeks rosy with a natural vitamin E enriched formula which conditions and hydrates the skin for a healthy, radiant glow. Super duper pigmented, all you need is the tiniest drop and then I apply with a stippling brush. Oh yeah, it also double duties as a cream lip gloss or stain—which I love! Just dab, rub and go, girl:)


4. Sexy Summer Waves
* Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray; $24.75; *

Lately with our humid, heat-wavish weather, I’ve been sporting the easy, no-nonsense ‘messy’ bun updo. But before I put up my hair I’ll spritz this sexy surf spray to enhance my natural waves and add volume. Bumble and Bumble promises ‘salt-infused styling for fullness, hold and a cool, matte finish’…yup, they definitely kept their promise!😊


5.  Lash Maximizing Mascara
* Lancôme Hypnôse Star Volume Ultra-Glamorous Regard Cinéma Show Stopping Volume Mascara; free; bonus sample *

For truly “cinema” eyes, Lancôme reveals the secret behind an ultra-glamorous fringe of lashes: the combination of an innovative brush with two patents pending and a “Black Diamond” effect fluid formula to sculpt lashes precisely. With its big fat brush and amazing formula, this mascara gives your lashes a big-bold-beautiful-black-boost.
