August Favourites and September Goals

Well, it's September already. Did we even have summer I mean where on earth has it gone? However, I am very much looking forward to September/ Autumn and getting back to uni! I thought, I would do my favourites a little differently this month as I'm adding my September Goals onto the end. I like the thought of "one door closes and another one opens" and we are closing the door on August and opening in to September! Anyway, enough of me blabbering on about doors let's get into the faves of the month!

Anastasia Modern Renaissance Palette

Let's just take a moment to appreciate the beauty of this palette.... it's just stunning. I love all the orangey colours for my crease and then putting a bit of Antique Bronze all over the lid for a quick but put together look! I also love using the lightest colour (top left) all over my lid and the using the browns and oranges in my crease with little bit of liquid liner! It's take a bit of time but I love the way it looks! So overall, I love this palette. I have lost count of the amount of times I have said love in this section. Love, love, love , love, love!

Gimme Brow

Now there are a couple of favourites from last month that are back because I have not put them down for two months in a row. This is one of the. It keeps my brows in perfect shape for the whole day and it doesn't make them crispy. The colour is such a good match for me and the brush is tiny and goes through the front of my bows perfectly: go and pick this up if you want brows that will stay all day!

Loreal False Lash Sculpt

Another favourite I have not put down. All other mascara's have been abandoned the past couple of months! It lifts, sculpts, curls, adds volume and pretty much does everything you want in a mascara. I have already re-purchased for when I run out!

Charlotte Tilbury Ectasy Blusher 

Now, I do love a good Charlotte Tilbury product. They are such good quality and yes they are on the pricey side but, they are so worth it. This blusher is super pretty just brushed lightly over the cheeks. I say lightly as it is supppeerr pigmented and if you go in too heavy handed you will look like a clown. Trust me, I know from experience! 

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter in Champagne Pop

Jaclyn Hill is the QUEEN of highlight. This is the only highlight I have been using this month,day or night it has been on my face. And I mean everywhere on my face. It is such a beautiful colour that will suit everyone! It is a very noticeable highlight so if you are looking for subtle highlight this one probably isn't the best! However, I love it.

Nars Sheer Glow

This is my favourite foundation ever. I just love it and the reason it is in my favourites this month is because when I went to V Festival I didn't take this with me. And, nothing compared to this foundation. This month I have really tried to wear different foundation but nothing compares to this. It's light on the skin with a medium finish, your natural skin just glows through but then it covers redness quite well! If you want to invest in a foundation give this a whirl as I couldn't live without it!

Mac Brushes

 To start I am sorry these brushes are a little bit dirty, I just didn't have time to wash them. Anyway, this month I finally completed my little collection of eye brushes! Now, I can't remember all the numbers of them but if you compare them to the numbers on the website it should be easy to fine them! I have really enjoyed using these s they make smokey eye makeup so much easier, they are also super soft and don't hurt your eye when blending!

September Goals

So, what do I want to achieve in the month of September? Well...
1. To get into a proper routine of planning and writing blog posts. I know I've been slacking recently so I reeaallyy want to get organised!
2. Go to the gym, remember when I said I was planning on going? Yeah... still haven't been yet! 
3. Go on more adventures! I love exploring places so i'm going to try and go to one new place each month!

And we are done! I hope you have all had a wonderful month/ summer and I would love to know what your September Goals are!



  1. Nars Sheer Glow is also a favourite of mine, like you said, it works so well for redness without being too heavy on the skin! The Gimme Brow is also a staple! Great post x


  2. That Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter highlighter looks to die for!! Deffo something I'll be looking to add to my evening makeup bag.
