Five Favorite Beauty Buys - August 2016

September 13

Illuminator: Becca Shimmering skin perfector in Opal
If you’ve tried Becca products, you will know that no one does a highlighter like Becca. This definitely wins as one of my favorite liquid highlighters too. If you love that dewy, fresh radiant finish, this is an essential. Infused with ultra fine, light reflecting pearls in a gorgeous bronze, this really does make a huge difference. You can either mix it in with your foundation, or just apply it over your foundation.
Available at Sephora stores

Lips: Wow by Wojooh lip liner in Woody Pink
I know this isn’t a lipstick, but I tend to use this all over my lips like a lipliner. Glides on well, it’s high in pigment and lasts on the lips all day. The Woody pink is a mix of woody brown and a pink rose.

Face Massager: The Body Shop Twin-Ball Revitalising Facial Massager
There’s so much buzz around facial massages, and how great they are for lifting, so I have tried facial massage sessions at Euromed Clinic (ask for Orse from Rebecca Treston’s team). I also got my hands on something I can do myself at home, which is by The Body Shop’s Oils of Life collection. After cleansing my skin, I roll it to the direction I’d like lifted. It’s a great way to improve skin tone, circulation and help with any puffy skin because of the fact that it helps with the blood flow and gives you your own lymphatic drainage massage.

Liquid Bronzer: Benefit Dew the Hoola soft matte liquid bronzer
You might have seen all the hype around liquid bronzers. I finally got my hands on one by Benefit and I must say I like it more than I expected to. Great if you like the dewy finish – matte bronzer in a liquid form, I personally prefer wearing it during the day for some subtle contouring.

Tan: James Read Instant Bronzing Mist
I must say finding a tan product is not easy – I’ve had my fair share of disasters. At the moment, I’m really loving this one – which comes out in a 360 mist nuzzle – and it gives off such a natural glow. There’s an invisible shade one (that shows after a few hours) and a normal bronze one.
