August Magazine Article

So I’ll say the same thing I say every month, can you believe it’s already [insert new month]?! I know I sound like Pinky and The Brain, but it’s true! How the hell are we in August already?? My son is in his last week of camp and he’ll be starting “official” preschool this month, sigh. As I sing Back to School Again from Grease 2 in my head and try not to cry…

No matter how old I got, I always got tickled when purchasing back-to-school supplies! The excitement of fresh markers, folders, and of course a planner always got me going. Even though I’m no longer in school, here are my A+ picks for my “Beauty Back-to-School” supplies from the Lifestyle Media Group Magazine Article.

August Magazine Article Beauty Supplies

1. Urban Decay Naked Smoky: Consider this highly anticipated new palette your fresh box of crayons for the school year, containing all of the hottest colors to achieve any degree of smoky eye you want! The fourth Naked palette contains 12 neutral, but dramatic, eye shadows, a dual-end brush, as well as a step-by-step instruction guide to help you create four different looks. ($54, Sephora, Ulta, and www.urbandecay.com)

2. NARS Pencil Sharpener: When was the last time you bought yourself a new sharpener for your eye and lip liners? If you’re due for one this one is the top of its class with a dual blade sharpener designed for every size pencil. It also features a blade cleaner and a cover on top to collect your shavings. ($6, Sephora, department stores, and www.narscosmetics.com)

3. The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter: This luminizing powder is one of my absolute favorites. Since we’re still in Summer and definitely still feeling the heat, keep that glow going by applying some on your cheekbones, on the bridge of your nose, and under your lash line. I’ll even use it as an eye shadow! ($24, Amazon and www.birchbox.com)

4. MAC Oval 6 Brush: As I always preach, to get the best results from your makeup you need the best supplies, aka brushes! This is one of my new favorites because of how easily it blends your face makeup, including foundation, powder, or blush. It’s even great to use when contouring! ($42, departments stores and www.maccosmetics.com)

5. Dermarie Lumitox Anti-aging Facial Serum: To get yourself ready for those early mornings whether it’s going to school, work, or hitting the carpool line, check out this new serum that works like Botox to reverse and prevent facial lines and forehead wrinkles. Best part (besides the packaging) – for the month of August, Dermarie is offering 30% off to all of my readers with promo code LEAH30. ($68, www.dermarie.com)

6. The Makeup Eraser: This is the ultimate eraser, but for your face! This wonder cloth removes all of your makeup, including waterproof, with just warm water! It’s machine washable, doesn’t stain, and lasts up to 1,000 washes.  If only it could also erase dark circles… ($20, Sephora and Amazon)

Have a great month and new school year!
