Summer Beauty Favorites

Hello, World.

When summer comes, I prefer to go lighter on my makeup, but I still like full coverage. I think a big part of summer is taking care of your skin, and making sure you’re protected while still being able to enjoy the warmer weather!

My mom bought this Korres Body Wash in the White Grape [grown in Santorini, Greece] scent, and it. is. delicious. Honestly, it smells SO fresh and clean. As soon as I smelled it, I ordered a bottle for myself. The Korres brand of shower gel is so hydrating. I’ve also never had any problems with the product irritating my skin!

I don’t change my makeup very frequently. Usually, once I find a product I like, I stick with it until I don’t like it anymore or want a change. Recently, I felt like I needed a new moisturizer. I like my skin to feel hydrated, but NOT greasy. I really dislike moisturizers that leave a filmy feel to your skin. So, I recently switched to Clinique moisture surge. It’s AMAZING. I also went through a bit of a “I don’t like any of the mascaras I’m trying. What is wrong?” phase recently. Then I was watching Carly of the College Prepster go through her summer make up routine, and she mentioned Too Faced’s Better Than Sex mascara. My mom had recently ordered it, and didn’t like it, so offered me the tube to try. I love it! My eyelashes look fuller and more prominent, which I like. IMG_2625.JPG

Urban Decay’s Naked concealer is probably my favorite. I used it a while ago, then decided to change. But I went back to it because it’s so weightless and easy. It also covers my dark circles really well, but I don’t [think] it makes me look cake-y.

In terms of concealer, I am obsessed with IT Cosmetics CC cream with SPF 50. It’s light, provides full coverage, but isn’t too much! I highly recommend this product if you’re in search of a great foundation.

I also love Urban Decay’s sin eye primer. It’s provides a bit of shimmer, so sometimes it’s all I wear on my eyes. Other times I just put a little color in my crease. Too Faced’s chocolate sample from Sephora is a great palette. I use it sometimes for my eyes if I want to wear a bit more color. I also love the bronzer. I usually don’t wear much bronzer, but I like this one because it’s not too dark on my skin, but will add dimension.

Finally, I love the smell of Lavender. I have some spray I put on my pillows, and I usually buy candles that have lavender in them. It’s one of my favorite smells. So, this Bath & Body lotion that is Lavender and Sandalwood is perfect for summer. It smells fresh, but has woody, more earthy undertones that are perfect for summer!
