Ahhh, I have missed you all so much!! The past couple of weeks have been so busy… It’s unreal! From work to slight traveling, a lot has been going on.
As usual, I am coming at ya with my beauty favorite products for the months of May and June! Normally, I would not combine the two but… Let’s be real, these products have been saving my life…Since it has been like a MILLION degrees here in Texas.
I know I am not the only gal out there who hates cakey or melty makeup! The worst feeling in the world is when it melts off because of the heat! Haha. No one has time to be wasting product or to be looking like an oily mess! Haha
With that, I love sporting a more natural look during the summer days. So let’s jump into the products that help me achieve a light weight and more natural look.
I have raved about the Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream before and I will still be raving about it now! It’s just that GOOD! It has been my go-to during these hot summer months. It is very lightweight and has a nice sheer coverage! Not to mention, it brightens and evens my skin tone, hydrates (major plus) my skin, and protects it with SPF 30. I usually use this BB cream in the shade light/medium but since I have been spending more time in the sun, medium/deep suits my completion better.
Once I finish applying the Maybelline BB Cream, I like to “erase” my dark circles with the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind concealer. It is literally concealer GOLD and for the price, you can’t beat it! I just apply a little under each eye to brighten and minimize the appearance of any dark circles.
Next, I like to apply a little bronzer to my cheeks just to add a little summer glowwww. The bronzer itself is very lightweight and smell like summer goodness! By far my most favorite drugstore bronzer!
By now, you should all know that I am a Maybelline fanatic…. I need them to just sponsor me already! Haha. So because of that, I rarely buy other drugstore products. Recently, a good friend of mine recommended that I try the Cover Girl Super Sizer Mascara. Let me just say, this mascara definitely does give your lashes a lot of length! Something that I love and look for when trying to sport a more natural look. Although, a major downside of this mascara was the formula… I wasn’t much of a fan. It was a tad on the sticky/clumpy side, but it could definitely be worked through. Overall, I give it a 6.5/10 for a drugstore mascara.
For my lips, I like to wear the Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in Mirrored. Yes, I know it’s more on the pricey side but it has become my FAVORITE lip gloss for the summer season. The formula is very hydrating, which I love because I get super dry lips in the summer. Also, the sheer bronze color with a hint of glitter just screams summer glow in my opinion. Oh, and it plumps your lips! 😉 Haha. If you feel like treating yourself, definitely pick up this gloss!
My favorite sponge for applying BB creams and concealers!!
I received these purse perfect hair towelettes complimentary of Influenster but my opinion is definitely my own. Normally, I do not buy products like this however, I am soooo happy that I was able to test them out! Love them! The Eva NYC purse perfect hair towelettes tame pesky frizz and flyways. Also, each towelette nourishes and refreshes your hair.
When this natural lightweight look is created with these products, not only does it feel refreshing but… it also reminds me that my more natural self is just as beautiful as myself with a fully done face. It’s empowering…To say the least, to feel fully confident in your own skin! So what if my blemishes and scars peep through that “not so full coverage” foundation?
It’s STILL soooo beautiful, y’all! Don’t ever forget that!
