Five Favorite Beauty Buys: August 2019

September 5

Lip scrub: Lush Cookie Dough lip scrub
Most women forget to exfoliate their lips, when they exfoliate their skin. Scrubbing them makes them feel more plump, hydrated and perfectly primed before applying any lip color over. Lush make some of my favorite, and this all natural cookie dough one smells SO good.

Travel essentials: MAC Limited edition Prep + Prime Fix+
MAC’s prep+prime Fix is one of my favorite setting sprays on the market and has been so for years. I love that it helps with blending in the make up, creates a beautiful dewy effect and keeps your make up lasting all night. For the summer, MAC have created 5 travel sized limited edition ones in different scents – watermelon, pineapple, white tea, peony and cucumber.

Primer: Fenty beauty Pro filt’r mattifying primer
I only started using primers this year, and it truly changed my make up game. Make up started to sit better, and would last all night. I love this one mattifying one by Fenty beauty, great if you have oily skin. Light, and feels good on the skin, my make up ends up lasting whilst giving this matte yet healthy finish.
Available at Sephora

Foundation: Benefit flawless brightening foundation medium coverage
I never thought Benefit would be one of my main go to’s for the best foundations, but I have been falling in love with the formulas they’ve been coming out with. If you found the initial Hello Happy too light, you’ll love this one. Brightens and hydrates because of the flower acids and hyaluronic acid ingredients.

Body: Barnangen Caring body lotion
I moisturize day and night, so I always do have a body lotion I’m either trying or in love with. This month, I’ve been using this from a Swedish brand – made out of oat milk and 5% of cold cream. Lightly scented, it’s super light and keeps my skin feeling very soft.
