7 Summer Beauty Essentials

17 Jul

With summer in full swing and the rising heat (ick), my beauty routine has definitely lightened up significantly. Not only because the heat makes me lazy but also because a fully made-up face in 100-degree weather can melt and end up looking funky. No one wants to have raccoon eyes. Here are my 7 summer beauty essentials that keep me feeling fresh and pretty without looking overdone.

1. L’Oreal Voluminous Mascara: This is hands down my favorite mascara of all time. I’ve tried them all from Dior to Lancome to all the drugstore brands. Nothing exceeds the volume, thickness and length that L’Oreal Voluminous gives. It never flakes and lashes feel soft and flexible to the touch with this mascara. Most others leave mine crispy and stiff. Many celebrity makeup artists swear by this mascara. A few swipes of this and I feel glamorous and ready for the day. The $7.99 price tag and the fact that it’s often buy 1 get 1 50% off isn’t bad either!

2. Bright lipstick: Since I don’t wear dramatic eye makeup in the summer I love to make a statement with a bold lip. I only like to make one beauty statement at a time. During the colder months I love a smokey, dark eye and nude lip. The summer is such a fun time to express yourself with vibrant, playful lips. I have three that I’m currently rotating between depending on my outfit and mood:

  • Revlon Persian Melon: This is one of my absolute favorite lipsticks. It’s a gorgeous hot pink cream with no shimmer, which is ideal. I prefer a lip color with no shimmer when a color is this bright.
  • Lancome Rouge in Love High Potency Lipcolor lipstick in Rose Boudoir :  This is a matte lipstick that’s a lovely and bright coral pink. It’s long wearing, which is a bonus!
  • Maybelline Fuchsia Fever: Fuchsia is a really fun lip color and this is my favorite fuchsia lipstick I’ve found. It has a similar look to the bright pinks but the hint of purple in fuchsia really adds a fun, playful pop to your look.

May Glam Bag, 2012

16 May

You know what, I’m going to be honest with you guys:  I had a lousy day yesterday.  I almost tripped over a dead deer (!) on my morning run, and it was all downhill from there.  After I got home from a long day, I washed my face and plopped my fanny in front of the computer.  That’s when I saw…

My May Glam Bag had arrived!  It was sitting so nicely on top of my mouse pad.  It’s just like it knew I needed a pick-me-up.  What’s inside?  Take a peek! Continue reading

What do you think of this kit?  I like it, but it’s not a must-have in my book.  Although I’m a huge Michelle Phan fan!

Check out her webiste here.  Click here to see her Facebook page.  She does some amazing work!

I needed a new fragrance to carry in my purse, and I unexpectedly came by one at Marshalls.

Check out the price!

Can’t beat that!  Certainly worth my 6 bucks!  Check out the full size on their website.
