July Favourites

July Favourites: themaquillage.com.au

It’s the end of July! Which means summer is almost here! Yes yes I know, not really, but I can dream right? The thing is, winter and I have never been friendly – I wouldn’t even consider us on speaking terms. Darkness and coldness have never been my bag baby, which only makes me wonder yet again why I moved from the more tropical climes of Brisbane to “is three layers of clothing going to keep me warm enough?” Melbourne. But things seem to be looking up –  it’s a “balmy” 17 degrees at the moment, and it can only get better from here, right? Right guys?? So what beauty faves have been keeping me occupied while winter has raged on outside?

theBalm Cindy-Lou Manizer: My full ode to this can be found here, but in a nutshell, Cindy-Lou is a peachy dream to use that warms up my currently pallid skintone. Love.

Dr Lewinns Day Moisturiser: Light but rich, easily absorbed, and is a gem for keeping my skin hydrated and super soft to the touch.

Benefit Watts Up: One of my latest Benefit acquisitions, I picked this up after seeing it demonstrated in it’s full glory at a blogger event recently. The goodness gets even better with a swish of a tint blended in over the top, such as Benetint, which I also picked up during my mini Benefit haul.

Napoleon Perdis Stroke of Genius: I raved about this earlier in the month and the love hasn’t faded. One of the things I’m finding I love the most about this is the brilliance of the packaging – compact and mess-free, and the built-in brush is perfect for quick on the go touch-ups.

Eye of Horus mascara: Hello holy grail mascara. The star pick out of this month’s Eye of Horus makeup look post, this mascara is perfect for bumping up your natural lashes to falsie status and creating fluttery, long lashes in a snap.

    Some lovely products! I can definitely envision the Cindy-Lou manizer and the Watts Up making a great combo.
