August Favorites: Vitamin C & Fancy Almonds

This month, I had a total of 3 days off.

I completed a 7 day sugar detox, finished a book about cats and did makeup for 2 female presidential candidates.

Somehow, I managed to wash my face and put makeup on it while putting it on other people’s faces nonstop.

In other news, I think I have carpal tunnel.

Anyways! Onto the favorites.


I love taking my makeup off at the end of the day and a cleansing balm + a hot wash cloth is a nice and relaxing way to do it. It feels more luxurious than a splish splash sitch. Due to the eucalyptus, kinda sorta smells like a chic Vicks VapoRub but I’m into it.

These really do refract the light in a supes flattering way. Think of as the chop and screwed remix of lighting. I have been using them on clients mostly, but when I used on myself, well everyone had better watch out.

Glossier Play Vinylic Lip in Disco

I love red orange lip colors and Glossier Play Vinyl Lip in Disco is such, but slightly muted for everyday wear. I really love the formula and the ease of application. Probs gonna buy more.

Vitamin C is a great ingredient for pretty much anyone to incorporate into their skincare routine. I am fairly certain I saw a visible difference from using this after just a few nights.

I hate all false lashes on myself…except . I need “baby” lashes because I am one. I used them to film this tutorial. I don’t hate ’em!

Non Beauty Favorites

I got these at Costco and I’m very into them. They’re not like regular almonds; they’re cool almonds.

More fitness vids

My latest YouTube fitness video discoveries are Heather Robertson and MadFit. The format of their videos is really unique, effective and actually fun.

My goal for September is to establish a better sleep schedule and a morning routine. We’ll see if that happens. LOLZ.

    […] These powders really do create a soft-focus, diffused light appearance on everyone I put them on. Often thought of as a highlighter, use them more as a final veil over your face for that filtered IRL effect. I talked about these powder in a monthly favorites post. […]
