I did, however, enjoy August a lot. We had fantastic weather all month, and so I did change my makeup routine quite a lot, found something that worked and stuck with it all month. So here are my favorites.
This Works Perfect Look Skin Miracle.
I have been using this daily, as it's a perfect base for makeup in hot temperatures: it keeps you rather matte, smooth, and it gives you a bit of color. A great staple for the hot months!
Diorskin Nude Freshglow Mineral Foundation SPF 10.
This has been in my drawers for a long time as it's a slightly dark color that requires me to be to be fake tanned. I have used it on top of the Perfect Look, only applied on the T zone with a Real Techniques Buffing Brush, so that my imperfection would be blurred and I would say shine free most of the day. This, however, doesn't have a slight matte finish so it gives the skin some luminosity, and it's not drying. Perfect summer foundation. I couldn't be bothered to wear liquid when it was 30°C outside!
Illamasqua Naked Rose.
Yes, again. Worn almost every day of the month on top of bronzer. It goes with anything so it's a no-brainer.
Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in Rouge Croisière.
I never wear lipgloss. I bought this on an impulse, with its matching nailpolish, and so I made myself wear it to justify the purchase. But actually I have enjoyed it a lot: it's not too sticky (which is what I hate with lipglosses), it's pretty and very easy to wear because it's much more sheer than it looks in the tube. So it's just a perfect touch of glossy color for Summer, where you don't always want to wear a heavy lipstick, and it's also a nice shade that goes with everything. Perfect with sunglasses too :)
When I reviewed this, I said I wasn't crazy about its smell. Also, I don't find it removes makeup as well as Bioderma (even though it's close). But I feel this is doing something for my skin. I can't put my finger on it, but it makes me look plump and glowy and hydrated. So I might well buy a full size bottle when the small one is used up (which will be soon). I guess the scent kind of grew on me and I can live with it now.
