Summer Sixteen Favorites

DSC00783

This summer flew by too fast for me to separate my favorite products into the different months so I decided to combine them and show you guys my top favorites that I always seemed to reach for this summer. These products I found to be the best for my sin to keep me matte during the hot days but also give me that perfect glowy and bronzy skin everyone longs for in the summer! All products will be listed below with prices and direct links : )

FACE

Smashbox Pore Minimizing Primer – $16-$39 . I’ve been wanting to try this primer for such a long time and was so happy to see I received it in my Play by Sephora monthly subscription box. This primer is great for those with oily skin and large pores.

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation – $43 . Flawless finish with this foundation, not too thick for the summer and long lasting. Available in a wide range of colors for every skin tone.

Urban Decay De-Slick Oil-Control Setting Spray – $14-$30 . Exactly what the name says, it will de-slick your face and keep you matte for hours. This is probably the most essential product you could have during the hot summer months or even all year round for those with oily skin.

BRONZE & GLOW

When it comes to bronzing & highlighting this summer, I loved to mix products to get that perfect glowy and bronzy look

Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer – $29 mixed with Too Faced Soiel Matte Bronzer $30 in Chocolate

Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit – $40 in Gleam (shade used – Mimosa) mixed with Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator – $26 in Gilded Honey

EYES

Ardell Studio Effects Wispies – $5.49 . These lashes are probably my all time favorite lashes now ! I already love the Ardell Wispies, but during my last time at Ulta i noticed they had these “Studio Effects” ones and I thought the more lash the better!

LIPS

Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick in Lolita – $20. This dark rose color is my favorite for this transition into fall but also for those late summer nights I had and wanted to glam up a bit. This is the most popular color she has come out with and I fully understand why ! The formula is also my favorite liquid lipstick formula out on the market.

NYX Butter Gloss in Fortune Cookie – $4.99. For those times where I don’t want matte lips and want to keep with the glowy/glossy feeling, I put this lip gloss on top of a nude lipstick. The perfect nude gloss without being sticky and annoying like most glosses are.

I’ll be back again with my favorites for this transition into my favorite season and leave this unbearable hot weather behind !

Summer’s Over Interlude

DSC00757

The summer came… and left just as fast. For my last summer outfit post, i wanted to do something that included all of my favorites with a pop of what’s to come for the fall. Off the shoulder tops, ripped jeans, and chokers were definitely the essentials to my outfits this summer so of course I had to do it one last time. Pairing it with a wine colored crossbody purse gave the outfit the “it’s almost fall” feel I’ve been wanting since the summer started. I hope you all enjoyed your summer & are looking forward to this holiday season as much as I am ! All details below : )

This outfit gave me super mermaid, summertime, beach vibes with a classy twist to it from the ruched hunter green midi skirt along with finding the perfect background to give it a beachy feel. This was also one of my favorite off the shoulder tops that I styled this summer and flows great in the summer breeze. All details are below πŸ™‚
