Happy Summer, everyone! I’m so excited that it is officially Summer. There’s something about sunshine & cold drinks that just puts me in the best mood. I haven’t done a monthly favorites post in a while and I have been loving so many new things, so I figured I’d update you guys on my current love list.
1) Rebecca Minkoff iPhone 7 Plus Phone Case –
The gold glitter and rainbow sunnies in this case make it perfect for Summer. I can’t stop flipping my phone upside down and watching it. I personally think it looks best on a rose gold iPhone.
2) Maybelline Matte Fit Me Foundation –
The fact that this foundation is drugstore and works just as well as majority of high end foundations that I’ve tried, has me completely sold! It is 1/5 the price of my average high end foundation and basically does the same thing. It keeps my skin nice and matte all day, doesn’t break apart or separate on my skin, AND doesn’t break me out. You can find this guy at your local grocery or convenience store. (I’m in the shade “Natural Buff”)
3) Boscia Charcoal Skin Mist –
I have pretty oily skin year round, but especially in the summertime. This skin mist has white charcoal in it, so it instantly absorbs excess oil on your face and makes your makeup matte all day long. I definitely notice a difference in my skin for the day if I skip this in my daily makeup routine!
4) Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder –
After using the boscia skin mist, I always follow up with the transluscent powder to keep everything in place. It also helps with mattifying your skin and keeps makeup in place all day without any flash back from pictures.
5) Sun Bum SPF lip balm in “Watermelon” –
For whatever reason, my lips always seem to get sun burnt before anything else, and let me tell you it is not pleasant. I first bought the Banana flavor in this lip balm, but lost it (like I do 50% of my lip balms) and decided to replace it with a new flavor when I was on vacation. I had already received a sun burn on my lips, but this instantly soothed and took the redness away. It also prevented my lips from getting anymore burnt for the rest of vacation. I would highly highly recommend checking out this brand as a whole. They make great sun protection products.
6) Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in “Bombshell” –
I’ll always stay true to a nude lip before I’ll venture out into the purples or pinks. That being said, I consider myself pretty picky with nude lipsticks. Sometimes they’re too light for me, or too dark, or too cool toned. I honestly borrowed this shade from my little sister after I saw her wearing it and instantly fell in love. If you have an olive complexion with yellow undertones like I do, this nude liquid lip is going to look BOMB on you. I have already ordered a new one because I can’t see myself wearing any other lip color for a long time!
