I cannot believe we’re already a week in to the final month of the year! In a few weeks we’ll officially be in the winter season where our skin gets dry and we get sick. Or at least that’s what happens to me.
When it comes to my face makeup I prefer light coverage. I’m a long time fan of BB creams and tinted moisturizer and over the years (and all the PR goodies I get sent) I’ve found a few favorites I keep on rotation. I know summer is ending soon, but these products can be worn all year round. Let’s break them down…
In the summer I like to cut back on my beauty routine. Less makeup, less shampoo and heat styling my hair. Which means I look for low maintenance products that still do some heavy lifting. Most days I apply tinted moisturizer, mascara, lipgloss and put a little dry shampoo in my air-dried hair and I’m out the door. Here are my current favorite products helping me get through the summer heat.
Happy Wednesday – thanks for reading!
Happy Thursday! I’m gearing up for two extra long weekends to close out the (official) summer season. But, who am I kidding, I will be celebrating summer until Thanksgiving and I’m not mad about it. I’m super excited to have this long weekend to get things done I’ve been neglecting around the house. We’ve been traveling almost every other weekend and the chores have piled up! We’ve also begun house hunting… which is interesting to say the least.
I glanced at my instagram he other day and realized I had a few shots that didn’t make the blog I wanted to share. I’ve been loving all things colorful and bright this summer, if you can’t tell by my rainbow of pictures.
TGIT! Is that a thing?! Hope you have a great one!
With the new year I wanted to create more beauty content and feature products I love and can’t live without. First up I thought I’d share my current favorite makeup products. I love to try out new products but am pretty
safe simple and tend to go back to my usual lineup. Recently I’ve discovered a couple new products and am happy to add them to my regimen.
I like my face to look clean and natural but I love a glow. I’ve been feeling so pale this winter so I’ve dug out my beloved bronzer. Who am I kidding, I never put it away! I love to look a little sun kissed and go way lighter in the stroke in the winter.
I’m pretty low maintenance on my eyes. To me the most important thing is mascara. I’ve blogged about this one before but it’s my fav. You can’t beat the price either and can find it just about anywhere. I don’t wear eye shadow unless I’m going out at night but when I do I like bronzey brown shades to make my blue eyes pop.
I love a bold red lip, but because my mouth is on the bigger side it mades me look a little clownish. Luckily I love a natural looking pink lip too. I’ve been using Sugar for years but recently my friend Kathleen got me into this Urban Decay color. The name doesn’t lie, I am obsessed!
Have a great weekend.. thanks for reading!
I don’t know if you’ve been near a mall lately, but holiday madness has already taken over and made them unshopable. I don’t want to deal with the parking, the crowds and the lines! I’ve resolved to do all of my shopping online this year… it’s much better on my health. Last week I shared my first holiday gift guide for all the homebody’s in your life and now I’m glamming it up. The best part? Everything is under $100!
This guide is for the product junkie. We all know one; their hair is always perfect, they mastered the cat eye before anyone else and they always have 16 lipsticks in their purse. Instead of resulting to getting them a Sephora gift card, surprise them with some of their favorite things… before they are their favorite things.
