August Favorites | Beauty + Music

Monday, August 31, 2015

This is it. August is gone which means you should be getting ready for scarf season and pumpkin everything.

Okay, maybe I'm getting a liiittle ahead of myself. 

Anyway, August might've been crazy busy, but it didn't stop me from falling in love with a few things:

I really love Earth Therapeutic's products and this month I decided to try their lavender pillow mist, since anxiety and bedtime are obviously not the best of friends. I'm always hesitant when trying a new "calming" routine because not everything works for everyone. However, I'm happy to report that this stuff is super helpful and it smells so good!

A mini version of the Lorac Behind the Scenes eye primer came with my Unzipped palette and I've been using it every time I wear shadow. And when I don't? The shadow doesn't last as long and it gets that ugly crease. So obviously I'm obsessed with this primer. 

For the longest time I'd just been using regular concealer under my eyes, but it never seemed to fully get rid of my horrid dark circles. So I decided to invest in some actual under eye concealer from e.l.f. and surprise surprise, dark circles be gone. (For the most part, anyway) This gem is actually a concealer/ highlighter duo so if you're wanting to contour, bam!

Speaking of e.l.f. I also found this handy shadow shield that catches all the eyeshadow fallout that could ever happen. (And if you use a lot of shimmer, it's a lot)

Boots Botanics has become one of my favorite skincare brands, and I recently added a new product to add to my routine. This organic facial oil is super soothing and hydrating, and don't ask me how but I swear it helps with those under eye circles. 

In the music department, I'm loving Kacey Musgraves' newest record Pageant Material. (I love the pink vinyl) Honestly she's probably one of the best things to happen to country music in awhile. 

Bea Miller is also a favorite of mine, as is her album. Girl's got vocals.

What favorites did you discover in August? Any recommendations?
