How freaking crazy is it that it's August already? I'm mind blown, and slightly scared.
This month has been an absolute whirlwind for me, I got a new job in a salon as their makeup artist AND its starting to sink in that I'm actually going to be going to college to study what I love and get my qualifications. My own little salon is getting more and more possible, and it's terrifying.
I have a whole list of things that I adored this month, so I'll jump right on into the post rather than ramble any more!
Morphe 35OS & 35P Palettes
These were my first ever Morphe palettes, and I absolutely adore them. They are honestly like my children. The 35OS is a re-vamp of their iconic 35O with a lot of shimmer added, and I just freaking love shimmer. 35P is a lot more matte with some shimmers added in, and a mix of browns and purples, the looks that can be created with these palettes blow my mind. I find myself reaching for one or the other of these palettes almost daily now.
Certifeye 'Orion' Lashes & Majestic Palette
If you've seen my Twitter, you'll have seen me fangirl several times over Certifeye, their amazing products and beauty of an owner. I love everything about this brand. Orion lashes are dramatic and fluffy, and I wear them every single chance I get. Be it for a big night out or a family dinner, they are my be all and end all of falsies. The Majestic palette can be used as eyeshadows, highlights, and blushes, but I mostly use it on my eyes. 'Royalty' is my perfect transition shade and is by far my most used in the palette, alongside 'Imperial', 'Power' and 'Regal'.
Zoeva Rose Golden Trio
I use this on both myself and my clients, and we all love it. It's a simple palette that I found in the Travel section of beauty bay, so it's perfect for sticking in your hand luggage. The top shade is a matte, cocoa brown perfect for contouring, the middle shade is a pure white, perfect for highlighting and setting under your eyes, and the bottom shade is a pink, shimmery blush. It gives your cheeks that perfect, summery glow, and I would recommend it to anyone!
Morphe Liquid Lipstick in 'Vanity'
I wasn't even slightly concerned about not liking this when I bought it, and I wasn't wrong. It's creamy, applies like a dream, and smells freaking beautiful. It dries matte and does not smudge for anything, trust me. I wore this on a date and it didn't even move during kisses. It looked a lot pinker on the website but in real life it is more like a light purple, and it's my daily go to currently.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade in Dark Brown
Are you truly a beauty blogger if you haven't raved about this product? I only just recently got my hands on it and I honestly don't think I could live without it now. I feel naked when I'm not wearing it. It lasts a full day in the salon paired with their clear brow gel, and it doesn't feel heavy or like your brows are glued down onto your face, which is definitely a plus.
Zoeva Graphic Lash Mascara, Cat Eye Pen, and Black Box Khol Liner
What a mouthful of a title, huh? I paired these three together as I wanted to trim down the length of this post, and felt like these are pretty self explanatory products. I use them daily, and after using the same brand of khol liner for years (Thanks, Avon.) I finally decided to jump ship and try a new one, and I am SO glad I did. The mascara applies wonderfully, has an amazing, thick brush and doesn't clump or flake after a couple of hours. The Khol Liner is a wonderfully creamy pencil, and stays on my waterline wonderfully during the day with only the tiniest little bit of smudging that I don't mind because I live for grungy eye looks. The Cat Eye Pen liquid liner dries matte and again, applies like a dream. It doesn't crease, it doesn't fade, and it keeps me looking tip top during those ten hour shifts.
Marc Jacobs 'Daisy'
One of my mum's friends brought this back for her from his holiday, and I had to pinch it because I love it so much. Fruity and floral, it has the perfect summer scent for me, and it makes me feel like a literal princess when I wear it. It's beautiful, and it's my staple scent this summer.
Oh boy, what a list! I hope you enjoyed reading, my lovelies!
Side note, I have started an instagram solely for my makeup and client pictures, so if you want to pop it a follow I am over at @reeroganmakeup!
See you next time, then!
