Summer Beauty Favorites

Hey Babe!!!

First off, I cannot believe its August already! Goodness. Although if you are like me….you may be hopeful for 2021, LOL. I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite makeup products I’ve been loving this Summer!

So here is a list and why I love them. I love to try new products all the time and in my opinion… you can never have enough makeup! 

 

Definitely start with a good skincare routine. The better you take care of your skin, the better your makeup application will be! I have been LOVING this City Beauty Serum. You can read more about it on this post.

Primer

Regardless of your skin type, Primer is a MUST. It helps prep your skin for a beautiful finish. This affordable primer “You Better Work” from Essence is legit. Just a couple sprays evenly over you face, let dry and you are ready to go! 

Foundation

Ok…. I am REAL picky about Foundation. I have been using the Loreal Infallible fresh wear a while, but I was ready to change it up. I have been really impressed with this foundation by Makeup Revolution. It’s a full coverage foundation and is great for oily skin. If you are dry, they do have a hydrating formula too! It has a nice doe foot applicator too which is nice to not have to pour it out as well. It also has an impressive shade range with warm, cool, and neutral.  

“Makeup Revolution’s Conceal & Define Full Coverage Foundation offers lightweight yet buildable coverage in 50 skin-true shades, this versatile foundation is designed to suit every skin type and tone. With an oil-free yet creamy and comfortable formula that dries down to a long-lasting, demi-matte finish, it won’t settle into fine lines or cling to dry patches. Housed in a luxe glass bottle with a jumbo doe-foot applicator for greater control and less waste, this foundation offers highly pigmented coverage that can be layered or diffused to suit your look.” – Makeup Revolution

Contour

I have been using this L’oreal Infallible Shaping stick to quickly Contour a while and still love it! Seriously… Contouring is LIFE. Your face has dimension, and you won’t get it without contouring with just solid foundation. I quickly swipe the “Honey’ shaping stick on my contour areas and placing where you like to minimize, and it blends lovely! I like to dab a cream illuminator on the brush I use to blend for extra glow! (They have it at Walmart or Walgreens usually.)

Concealer

This Essence concealer means BUSINESS. I mean it covers everything. I love to apply it where I want to brighten, and then use a damp beauty sponge to blend. A little bit goes a long way. I use the Light Ivory for a brighter pop. 

“You’ll never know they’re there! Essence Camouflage + Matte Concealer completely covers dark circles, hyperpigmentation, redness, pimples, and tattoos. The waterproof formula doesn’t crease or sit in fine lines. The concealer will make your skin look brighter, firmer-looking, and smoother. Paraben free. No Animal Testing” – Essence

Setting Powder

I love a good setting powder to “bake” while I do my eye makeup and lashes. It really helps to draw a line of powder where your eye makeup will end so you don’t get much shadow fall out a crisper edge. I love this Elf Halo Glow Powder. It has a good brightening effect and is affordable too! 

Why Bronzer? It helps liven up your skin and helps deepen your contoured areas for a perfect glow! Can you tell I love Essence products? HAHA. This over sized “Sun Club” bronzer blends pretty and stays on great.
 
“Sunkissed glow! The Essence Sun Club Luminous Bronzing Powder takes your bronzer to the next level. The beautiful satin finish adds a gorgeous glow to your sunkissed look.”- Essence

Benefits:

Bronzer

This Tori Belle The Works Brow Gel is the bees knees. I mean once it is dry, it doesn’t move. It’s waterproof and comes in 4 shades too. I use the Black or the Dark Brown! I LOVE it. You can either grab in the gel pot alone or with the brow kit! You can shop it here.

Brows

Eyeshadows

Our Tori Belle eyeshadow palettes are my fav! They have such good pigment and the palettes last forever! The flat Earth pallete is matte shades that are universally flattering. I love the Wine and Terracotta. They are very buildable and create a soft smokey eye.  You can grab this pallete here. 

Eyeliner (for wing)

If you love a SUPER sharp wing, this eyeliner is AMAZING. I always love a good wing… it just warms my heart. This Essence Super Fine waterproof eyeliner is so sharp, you don’t even have to clean it up with concealer. #blessings. It goes great under our magnetic eyeliner too. You can find it here. 

“Oh so fine! The Essence Superfine Waterproof Eyeliner Pen has an ultra slim felt tip applicator for precise application and is now available in waterproof! Long lasting formula. Ideal for creating fine and subtle lines or extravagant and dramatic ones. Not tested on animals.”

You know…. I usually use our Ivory Glow for Illuminator all the time! It’s actually a Tori Belle eyeshadow palette, but the shimmer tones make great illuminators. It’s a pretty shimmer pink that pops perfect on your cheekbones and nose! You can find it here. 

Illuminator

I literally never use just one lip product. I normally like to mix shades and make colors up! I LOVE the (you guessed it) Essence Contouring Lip Liner in “The Big Proposal.”

I generally for lipstick either wear Tori Belle “Seashell” or NYX “Sugar Wafer.” And then add a touch of gloss on top! 

For Gloss I love the Elf MegaLast Liquid Catsuit in “Caught you Bare Naked.” Alone it is LIGHT, but when you add a touch of it in the center it is lovely!

fav gloss toppper

So as most of you know I share these amazing Lashes. And I love stacking different styles to make different looks! For a more natural look, I went with our classic 9 to 5 and stacked one set of Epic Illusion lashes (which are coming back soon!) 

You can check out alll the details in my latest YouTube video below and purchase Lashes here.
