August favourites featuring Urban Decay, Dior, Kevyn Aucoin & more!

I just cannot believe that August is over and Autumn is on the way. It still feels like we didn't really have a summer and now it's time to embrace warmer clothes and deeper colours. Before we do that, I want to talk about my August favourites, they are mainly new products because I received so many new products for my birthday this month and I have been really loving using them.

When I was thinking about my favourite products from this month, the first thing that jumped out at me was Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Liquid Lighting in Candlelight. This has made me look quite healthy, when in reality I am anything but. It really gives that lit from within look that I crave and I have been using it non-stop this month. It is a champagne colour and doesn't look greasy at all, just giving the skin a beautiful sheen. Love, love, love it!

For my base, I have been really loving Dior Airflash foundation. I was hesitant about buying this because I wasn't sure if it would suit my quite dry skin, but to my surprise and delight, it looks great & doesn't cling to any dry patches. I always use a primer, my favourites being Clarins Beauty Flash Balm and Hourglass No 28 Primer Serum. Both of these create the perfect, hydrated base for my foundation. I love the airbrushed finish that this Dior foundation gives my skin. I don't spray it directly on my face because I find that it gets in my hair, so instead I spray directly onto my brush & then apply and blend.

The final two make-up products were also birthday gifts: Urban Decay Afterglow blush in the shade Indecent and  Dior Addict Lip Maximizer. The blush is a beautiful matte peach and although it looks very pigmented in the pan, it doesn't translate just as strongly on to the skin and gives a very natural look to the skin. It has a very soft texture and is a dream to blend. I would love to try some more from this range. The gloss has a very high-shine finish and makes my lips look very plump. It has a tingle, which I quite like but some people may not, however it is not painful. 

Finally, I had to mention Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Forever because I have been wearing it daily since receiving it. I love the sweet, fruity scent and what I love most about it (apart from how pretty the bottle is), is how long it lasts on my skin! I can still smell it after about 6/7 hours, which is brilliant.

I'd love to know what you have been loving this month?

I am on holiday in Greece at the moment so I won't be posting again until next Sunday when I will be back with a  Duty Free haul. I will reply to all comments and catch up on my blog reading when I return!

Thanks for reading!
