IMG_4237.jpganother month, done and dusted.  i am definitely looking forward to changing leaves and cooler weather, but am also sad to see summer go.  here were my favorite items for the last month of summer:

my glowy skin routine // i went into some depth on these products here so i won’t bore you anymore

combination of tata harper very charming and nars impassioned // these two blushes are a beautiful combination.  the tata harper is a bolder pink, while the nars is a neutral blush pink, but they work together beautifully.  i also like that i am in a way setting my cream blush, so i know my flush will stay for the whole day.

mac 187 brush // i feel like i change up my makeup brushes pretty frequently, so recently i’ve gone back to this old favorite.  i love how softly it applies powder products, setting and bronzing my face very subtly.  it does shed slightly, but nothing too bothersome as some people have said.

real techniques expert face brush // i’ve been using this to blend out my cream face products and it is perfect.  it’s dense but not too dense, so it blends out the products well but doesn’t apply them in a too concentrated way.  does anyone have the mac 170 brush?  it looks similar to this and the sigma f80 but i really want to try it!

weleda buckthorn hand lotion // weleda is definitely one of my favorite skincare brands.  i use their lip balm, skin food, and now this hand lotion.  it sinks in almost immediately, smells like vacation, and has been making a difference in my hands’ hydration.  love!

tamira jarrel // an old favorite youtuber that i have fallen back in love with.  i love how calm and real she is, and this extends to her approach to makeup.  she also has a great blog, visit it here.

slaughterhouse-five // i picked this up at my local free book drop off, and though it’s not really a “beach read,” i loved this all the same.  it took me only a few days to read, which is saying something as i haven’t been this into a book in months.  i really enjoyed it, both the mystical elements and the very very real ones.  i definitely recommend this, especially if you haven’t read kurt vonnegut before.

komono renee sunglasses // i got these sunglasses last summer, and while i liked them then, i love them now.  they are the only sunglasses i have been wearing the past month, probably because i can put them on my head and not get all my hair stuck in them the way i do with my aviators.  i also love the brown lenses and the tint they give to my world!  a great staple pair of sunglasses.
