This month has been a crazy blur of photoshoots, planning shoots and blogging and testing out amazing new products. Here is my August Essentials list of products I am loving this month and can’t get enough of:

Gosh All Day Moisture Serum: I was sent this to review a while ago but only started trying out this month. I used it on myself before applying the Mac BB cream and my skin looked amazing. So to put the serum to the test I have been using it on my models for some of my recent shoots and I love this product. It glides onto the skin and leaves the skin looking really fresh and feeling so smooth and once I apply the foundation the skin looks beautiful. The serum has two natural based elements Daymoist CLR and Skin Tightner ST leaving the skin fresh and tightened. LOVE

YSL Touch Eclat: An all time favourite and a classic product. I have been going to this product a lot this month to really highlight the face naturally. When my brief is a fresh flawless face then this is a product I reach for to highlight key areas like under the eyes, on the smile lines and around the mouth to really make the lipstick pop.

Mac Pro Conceal/Correct Palettes: I always used my Bobbi Brown concealers until I got my hands on these palettes. I LOVE these concealers as they blend into the skin beautifully and they don’t crease as much and I absoloutely love the texture of this product. What I also like is there are a few shades in the palette and so its easy to conceal under the eyes in a lighter shade but then on the face where needed I can buff in the concealer to blend in with foundation.

Mac Veluxe Pearl Fusion in Brownluxe: Its a limited edition product so you need to get a move on if you want to get your hands on a palette. I bought this shade as its colours that I will always use a lot. I love the texture and I love how the shadows blend in. Gorgeous.

Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate: I use this product on and off purely because I have so many contouring and highlighting products and because its expensive so don’t want to waste it. I love this palette the contour and the highlight are both creams. The highlight is absolutely beautiful for a glowing natural highlight with the element of gloss. Beauty tip apply the highlight on top of the cheek bone before applying foundation and then once the foundation is on go over the highlight area. The contour buffs in beautifully and is perfect for that dewy fresh look.

Hope you enjoyed my post. x
