Summer Beauty Favorites

Hey guys,

Summer is sadly coming to an end and I’ve managed to rotate a lot of my makeup but there have been some items that have been staple pieces the last few months.

IMG_2497Make Up For Ever HD Foundation: This has been my go to foundation for summer because its super light weight and looks invisible while still providing good coverage.

Make Up For Ever brush 154: Its a flat top brush with dense yet flexible bristles. Great for stippling or buffing for that perfect airbrush-esque finish.

Make Up For Ever HD Powder: Although I tend to have more dry skin in the summer I do get a bit hot and shiny so this stuff really keeps me looking shine free on the hot humid days.

summer_beauty_favorites_cheeksAnastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit: I’m so obsessed with this guy!!!! Its got everything I need for contouring and highlighting plus it’s got great pigmentation, nice smooth texture and good blendability.

Benefit Rockateur Box Blush: This blush is just so insanely gorgeous. I love the amazing glow it leaves on the cheeks in the most beautiful warm pink tone, its just so amazing on sun kissed skin.

What were some of your most beloved beauty products this summer? Although I love me the sun and bright lippies I’m definitely looking forward  to autumn :) I love all the warm colors, cozy layering and knits. I’m totally gonna embrace the fall season and start busting out some deep gem stone eye shadows and vampy lipsticks!!!

September Favorites

Hey guys,

I have a bunch of fun beauty favorites to share with you. Since the beginning of September I’ve been busting out a bunch of oldies from my stash and adding a few new ones as well 😀 These are the bad boys I’ve been reaching for almost on the daily this past month!!

September_FavoritesNow that my tan has faded I’ve put away my darker shades and pulled out some of my lighter ones. I’m absolutely in love with the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. I love the satin finish and the light to medium coverage. It really looks natural and lasts a super long time.

September_Favorites_GeorgiArmani_LuminiousSilkFoundationTo set my foundation I’ve been using my beloved Make Up For Ever HD Powder. I haven’t used it in a while and almost forgot how amazing it is for longevity and oil control. I’m on the dry side so I have to be super light handed with this guy but it sure does the trick!!

September_Favorites_MUFE_HDPowdeWhen I heard Benefit was launching a new Box Powder, the Rockateur, I was stalking the poor girls at Sephora so badly asking if they’d received it yet!! Lol!! Well once I got my hands on it I haven’t been able to put it down. I’m loving it so much. It gives a gorgeous light and pinky glow to the cheeks. It looks super frosted in the box but it translates so softly. You can even use it on the cheek bones as a super natural highlight.

September_Favorites_Benefit_RockateurI’m obsessed with contouring. I don’t think I go a day without trying to define my cheekbones so I’m always trying out new matte bronzers. My absolute favorite one at the moment is TheBalm Hot Mama. Its a nice cool toned brown with a slight hint of taupe/greyish undertones so it doesn’t look muddy on the face. The texture is amazing and so is the longevity. Its pretty pigmented so a little bit goes a long way with this one.

September_Favorites_TheBalm_HotMamaI recently uploaded a new post on my favorite green eyeliners for fall (here). Well surprise surprise that one of them ends up in my monthly favorites. Its the L’Oreal Color Riche Le Smokey in 209 Antique Green. This has been one of my go to products for a quick easy make up look. I add this to my waterline and some mascara and boom out the door. The rich jewel tone shade is absolutely gorgeous and bang on trend.

favorite_green_eyeliners_lorealI’ve been busting out all my berry and red lip products for fall. Benefit’s Ultra Smooth Lip-Color in Talk Flirty has been my everyday shade. It’s a soft berry pink shade and it’s a sheer way to rock a more autumnal lip. Check here for a detailed review.

September_Favorites_MacRebel_LipstickWell guys and dolls those were my most used and loved products for the month of September. What were some of yours?
