In July as well as August it was about time for me to spend all my money on make up (again).
Just when I thought my make up obsession was left in my past it hit me again, and this time even harder.
Buuut this time I was smart(er-ish) and invested in higher quality products that are suitable for every day. 💡
The one thing I was the most excited for out of all my purchases was the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. Even though I veeery rarely ever wear eyeshadow on a daily basis I thought this might make me get started with it as the colors in this palette offer so many possibilities from a smoky night look to a natural look for every day. Especially the pinks in it have been calling my name over the past few weeks and after hearing exclusively amazing things about this palette I just had to get my hands on it and what can I say, it’s definitely the most beautiful palette I’ve ever seen and I’m not only talking about the eyeshadows. (A+ for packaging, Mrs. Soare)
Theeen I bought another palette because I’ve also wanted this for the longest time (and I just felt like treating myself this month, I cannot lie). 💁🏽
I’ve known the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette since forever I feel like because it appears in literally every single make up collection video I’ve seen on YouTube and, I honestly feel like this palette was made for me because the colors in it are so right up my alley and, just like the Anastasia palette, exactly what I was looking for: great quality shadows for every day (and night) use.
Can you believe it? I have another, well actually two, Anastasia Beverly Hills products to show you. I mean, how can you not buy at least one Anastasia Beverly Hills brow product? Anastasia has made her way into my heart because, even though I only have a few of her products right now, I adore every single one of them and I admire her as a person overall.
I’ve been a not-so-secret admirer of the Dipbrow Pomade for years now but I didn’t want my first pomade to be a high end one because I wanted to practice first and the Dipbrow Pomade seemed very intimidating to me. But now I’m safe to say that I have (kind of) mastered the art of doing eyebrows with it and I’m sooo glad I finally invested in it. Though I’d say practice with this specific product is definitely needed because this product is so highly pigmented. However, I used it for the first time when I did my make up for prom and it actually turned out great.
To go with that, I bought Anastasias 7B brush because its super thin brush makes applying this product so much easier.
July was the month I discovered false lashes for me. The first lashes I got were the Ardell Demi Wispies, which I own two pairs of by now and which I also wore to prom.
But because I also wanted to have some natural lashes, I got the Ardell 151 Soft Touch Naturals for everyday wear.
I also finally gave in to my desire of buying MACs Velvet Teddy lipstick because it’s just a staple product and actually my favorite lipstick right now (so basic, I know).
And along with that I bought Modesty because the color is beautiful and I love the Cremesheen finish.
