August Favourites Extravaganza.

By Aspirationsofglam @Aspirationsofgl
Hello Beauts.Today I bring you my August favourites and it feels somewhat peculiar because favourites posts always pass me by before Ive got around to them.Come to think of it my last favourites post was last.....oh god March.
Regardless August has been one of those months where Ive been a crazy mad working lady with brief pauses for some well earned play, and I think my selection reflects this.

Foundation has been a bit of this and a dash of that. I purchased Rimmels widely raved about Wake Me Up foundation. I absolutely love the finish and weirdly the smell. The only problem is generally I need my foundations to last all day, and I don't know if its the "drugstore curse" but for me I come to the end of the day a little lack luster for that beautiful finish I leave the house with of a morning. I love that this foundation  is easily buffed out with my beloved Real Techniques buffing brush. However despite all of this I haven't given up on this. I was thinking of trying to set it with some powder perhaps? Its one of those relationships I'm willing to invest a bit of time on  to make work (oooh don't I sound over emotional!), because I don't think I'm getting full potential at present any tips greatly appreciated!

Benefits Erase Paste has become a new and welcomed member of my daily makeup routine. This works wonderfully at hiding the darkness (and lets face it sometimes suitcases) from under my eyes and also brightens the area. It has been bringing a whole new meaning to "putting your face on" of a morning. I covers a multitude of sins, and sometimes hangovers review here.
For a change Ive been steering away from my UD Naked palette(s) when not being lazy and applying MAC's paintpot in Bare Study I have been delving back into my [still not complete] MAC palette this month. I love shroom as a highlight, Satin Taupe, Woodwinked and All That Glitters for a crease/lid color depending on occasion. ...and with regards to completing the palette I shall be patiently waiting for when Debenhams annually looses its marbles and offers 10% off all beauty. Suggestions for eyeshadow shades please!

With Regards to blush I have been loving the combo of Topshop cream blush in Head Over Heelswith a light dusting of  Benefit's Coralisa for added coral-ness. I really didnt get the whole coral cheeks thing until summer came around. Now I love it. If you are into the dewy look when it comes to makeup I cannot reccommend the cream blushes enough, theres also a beautiful selection of shades.
Nails has been a general rush of Essie-ness. I think because their so easily available everytime I visit Boots I am compelled to purchase, I have been loving Figi, Tart Deco as well as ELFs Mango madness. For Creamfields I wore OPIs Cajun Shrimp. Notting Hill Carnival may have well taken place on my nails they've been so colourful.
So thats it!
What have you been loving over August?
