June Beauty Favorites
Products from top to bottom, left to right:
COVERGIRL EXHIBITIONIST MASCARA // I am very very very impressed with this mascara! You should buy it and give it a try. I think you’ll be impressed! Don’t forget to use a primer like the one below.
VOLUMINOUS LASH PRIMER // The primer I always use for mascara no matter what type it is!
CHARLOTTE TILBURY LIP GLOSS // Use this lip gloss for a beautiful pout and high shine with no stickiness. Shade “Portobello Girl” is the prettiest light pink!
NEUTROGENA LIP SHINE // This lip gloss isn’t pictured because it’s empty! This color is “Flushed Coral” but I also love the color soft blush so much!
SUN BUM 3-In-1 CONDITIONER // A leave in conditioner is a must-have summer product for our house full of long wavy hair. This one is a conditioner, detangler and protectand that smells devine. I spray it on my own hair as well as my girls’ strands to control frizz, prevent split ends and bring much needed moisture back to our tresses!
COOLA MAKEUP SETTING SPRAY // A 70 percent organic makeup setting spray that reduces shine, refreshes UV protection, and keeps makeup looking fresh all day. It kind of stings on contact like a sunscreen or a minty spray would but then the cucumber and aloe vera extract calm almost instantly. It also has hyaluronic acid to help soften and hydrate your skin as it reduces the appearance of pores!
SK-II ESSENCE // I’m STILL trying to finish this bottle. I haven’t noticed any drastic differences that it claims but I think that you might just have to only use this to tell the difference? I like how it leaves my skin afterwards and think it’s a great toner but not sold due to the price tag. To be continued…
SUPERGOOP UNSEEN SUNSCREEN // And the most valuable product for June goes to…. this stuff! It’s magic in a bottle, y’all! For the time being it has replaced my beloved Elta MD due to it’s sheer weightlessness and how it preps my makeup. I really wish I could send everyone a bottle because it transforms your skin and makes your makeup look oh-so-good.
IT COSMETICS CC CREAM // This is already my go-to for everyday makeup, but the SPF also makes it great for the beach! I wear shade Light Medium and will also mix with this CC Cream Bronzer for a touch more color!
TARTE SHAPE TAPE CONCEALER // I always find myself going back to this concealer. It’s a cult favorite, and for good reason!
CHARLOTTE TILBURY EYESHADOW PALETTE // Shade “Pillow Talk” is amazing for summer with four perfectly warm shades with pink undertones for a bronzed look.
TARTE CONTOUR PALETTE // This compact contour palette is a no-brainer to have on hand for a summer touchup. Use shade “Farmer’s Market” for contouring your cheekbones and adding a little color to your face, “Summer House” on the apples of your cheeks for a fresh flush and “Beach Getaway” to highlight your cheekbones and the bridge of your nose. Just go easy on the blush, a little bit of “Summer House” goes a long way!
MAYBELLINE EYELINER // This product will give tired eyes an instant boost! Put a little bit on the inner corner or your eye or your waterline to help your eyes look bigger and brighter!
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS BROW PENCIL // This is my favorite eyebrow pencil. The pencil is thin and looks very natural and the pigment stays put all day. I wear shade taupe.
NYX EYELINER // A cheap eyeliner that is so easy to apply! It’s an angled tip so you can easily press it to your lash line for a smooth application.
MAC EYESHADOW PRIMER // This is a primer that you can wear solo or as a fantastic base to your eyeshadow. It will really help your shadow stay on and it will help you not use as much eye shadow since the pigment looks so much better with a primer. I wear color “painterly”.
BECCA HYDRA MIST POWDER // This setting powder is AMAZING!! For powders I would 100% use this sale to buy this setting powder! I also love this setting powder. They both blur imperfections and set your makeup so it stays in place! This is a great powder to set your eye concealer as well!
CHARLOTTE TILLBURY HIGHLIGHTER WAND // This will be on every single roundup until they discontinue it. I apply this to my cheek bone, the bridge of my nose, my cupid’s bow or the inner corner of the eye for a pretty glow.
CHARLOTTE TILLBURY HOLLYWOOD CONTOUR WAND // This is the easiest product ever for contouring your nose! You could also use under your cheek bones and blend with a beauty blender.
