I can’t believe August is already coming to a close…WTH?! As this month comes to a close, I wanted to do a best of beauty favorites post for you guys. One of the perks of blogging are all the amazing mailers that beauty brands send you. I love testing them out and then sharing the ones that I have been reaching for the most. I’ll be doing these beauty edits monthly for you girls if you’re into them so here are the beauty products that have made the cut this month…..

I haven’t gone completely clean in my beauty routine but I am definitely being active about trying out new products and swapping where I can. This Skin Tint from Beauty Counter is awesome! It gives natural looking but good coverage and lasts all day without looking oily. I use the color Honey.
I shared this bronzer on my Non Commitment Bronzer post last week but it’s definitely one i’ve been reaching for a lot lately. It smells great and the color pay off is gooood! It washes off the same day so if you break out from most self tanners like I do- this one works well with my skin.
This Matte Bronzer is in heavy rotation this month. It finally came back in stock in my shade (Medium 2) so I immediately scooped it up. Most bronzers have a shimmer to them and love that this one is shimmer free! I use it daily to contour and also as an eyeshadow when i’m in a hurry.
Another clean beauty swap! This one made it my August top picks because it actually works! I have used several clean deodorants and this one is my favorite so far! I have the eucalyptus scent but also love the sandal wood (and they just launched a fragrance free option too!)
I’ve been using this setting powder for yearsssss (literally probably 5 years) and now they’ve launched a yellow based setting powder perfect for olive and medium skin tones and looove it! I literally never have to worry about becoming oily when I use this product so highly recommend!
If you’re filling in your brows on the daily like I am, this $20 brush is a must! I don’t know exactly what it is about this brush but when I use it, it just works so well! I love that it has a brow brush on the opposite end too.
This lipstick is my newest addiction! It’s matte but not like any other matte i’ve tried. It glides on easily, stays in place and is the perfect natural’ish lip color. It’s that color that can be worn day or night and gives your natural pout an elevated dose of color. (I wearing it in the color Oh, She’s Single with the matching lip liner)
This is the blush compact i’ve been reaching for all month long. It’s the perfect flirty color for Summer and all for the cream/powder combo so it lasts all day! I wear it in the color Do We Know Her?
This mirror was something i’d been eyeing for over a year and finally pulled the trigger about 6 months ago and I use it every. single. day! The light up option is super convenient and it comes with a magnetic phone holder so I can film my makeup tutorials for you girls too.
I’ll be honest i’m new to hourglass products but This Brush is one of my current favorites. It’s SO soft and love the angled head which makes super easy to contour. I was so impressed with this brush it convinced me to order two other hourglass brushes so I will keep you posted on those too.
These Wonder Wipes are a new favorite that I use daily. I have super sensitive skin so finding wipes I use (especially around my eyes) is always a challenge. These work so well and love that they are 100% plant based and also packed with hyaluronic acid and a vitamin C serum too! It feels really good using them and love all the extra added benefits i’m getting without even having to think about it. I think they best part is I signed up for a month refill and it’s really convenient when they just show up at my door and I don’t have to think about buying more.
and lastly another clean beauty swap i’ve been really happy with! This Coconut Skin Primer Moisturizer is super hydrating and my go to lately for a base before I add on my coverage. My skin drinks this up and have to say it feels good adding another clean product to my daily routine.
and those are my top beauty picks for August! If you girls are into these BEST OF monthly posts i’ll continue to do them at the end of each month!
