Happy Monday, y’all! The weekend went by in a flash (as usual) but I am excited that we’ve hit the summer season… and it certainly feels like it. Yesterday’s high was 99! Today I’m linking up with Biana & Meghan and talking about some of my current beauty favorites for summer.
Coral is a great color for the summertime and this Clinique long last lipstick in “runway coral” has been my go-to this season. I love how a little bit of lipstick instantly makes me feel more put together.
I have recently been using the precleanser at night. Yes, you read that right. It’s the cleanser before the cleanser. I thought it was weird, but my esthetician recommended it since I’m prone to blackheads. First of all, if smells ah-mazing… very spa-like. It’s very oily and you put it on your face dry, rub it in, then add a little water and it makes a slight white foam. I do think my face has felt cleaner since using it and I’ve had a few less blackheads- so it’s a winner in my book!
I got this as a sample from an online Nordstom order (aren’t those the best?) and am contemplating buying the mini spray bottle. This scent has been around for quite a while and it always makes me think of summer- the perfect mix of fruity and floral!
I first discovered this mask in a Birchbox and have been a fan ever since! It smells amazing, is super creamy, and doesn’t harden on your face. I also love that it comes with a brush for better application and you can get 2 uses out of one pod.
Anastasia Waterproof Topcoat
I used this when I was on vacation and it held up like a champ! I’m not usually one to wear mascara to the beach, but I wanted a little something on my lashes when we were out and about all day. This is a thin coat that you apply over your favorite mascara to make it waterproof… genius!
Alright, so I had been using a Philosophy powder for y e a r s and they recently changed the applicator and I read a bunch of bad reviews so… I was in search of a new powder. I wanted something with light coverage to go over my BB cream and I decided to go with the Bare Minerals BareSkin veil. I’ve only had it for a week but it has been great so far- it gives my skin a nice airbrushed look!
Essie Summer Mini 4-pack
Ok soooo to say I’m obsessed with these colors would be an understatement. Essie hit the nail on the head with these summer colors. You may have seen “Chillato” (the pale green) on my nails on my Instagram this weekend. I currently have the blue color on my toes and love love love all of the colors. I always go for the mini 4-packs because I tend to get burnt out on colors and love the variety!
