August Faves

You guys. I’m currently obsessed with my beauty routine.


…I’ve jumped on the Kim Kardashian Contour train.

And. I’m. Never. Looking. Back.

Disclaimer: Right about now, if you’re saying, “I’m not the kind of girl who wears makeup,” then you should probably just leave now–we won’t have much in common. If you’re saying, “I’m naturally beautiful–I don’t need this,” then screwwwwww yewwwww.

In the above photo, you’ll see several classics. For instance–Urban Decay’s eye shadow palette, Naked 2.

If you haven’t tried this or aren’t using it, do you live under a freakin’ rock?

It’s fabulous. So many beautiful shades for a natural, understated work-day look as well as options for your night-time smoky eye. Cuz I’ve gotta have options, amirite?

Another classic, Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum.

EAU DE PARFUM? Yea. That’s what I said. I see you there rolling your eyes and saying, “it’s called perfummmme in America, you idiot.” Stop. It. Right. Now. Once you’ve made French macarons from scratch at Sur La Table, you can start calling things by their French names.


For starters, I will now refer to myself as La Hype-Fille! La is French for “The” and Fille is French for “Girl.” Duh.

And my last current classic essential, Tory Burch Logo Stud Earrings.

And now, la pièce(s) de résistance (which is French for “the most important thing”):

The Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette.

What’s super is that this palette comes with a little illustration with how to contour using the palette’s shades.

I love the Marc Jacobs bronzer brush to apply the contour’s dark shade.

It applies the powder so evenly it gives me tingles just to think about it. And it’s like just so super soft.

What are your current faves?!


If you are interesting in contouring but aren’t sure which palette is right for you, I recommend just popping into your neighborhood Sephora and ask the makeup artists for their advice, taking your individual skin tone and type into consideration!
