Beauty Summer Essentials

Hello and welcome back friends! If you don’t follow me on Instagram, I announced that I’ve set a schedule where I’ll be bring a new post to the blog every Wednesday at 11:00am, and I’m very excited to stick to a schedule that will allow me to follow a routine! Today, I’ll be sharing my current beauty favorites I’m loving this summer!

Starting with skincare:

I recently picked up Summer Friday’s Jetlag Mask – and although I don’t have any jet lag, I am a mom of 3, so I guess that’s kind of the same thing, right?

Anyway, I’ve been using it everyday since it came in, and I love using this in the morning after toning my face to help wake me up, & plump my skin. I love how fresh it feels once applied, and I also love the feel of rinsing it off. You don’t necessarily have to rinse it off (you can wipe it off with a tissue or damp cloth), but I do so when applying the rest of my skincare routine.

After rinsing the Jetlag Mask, I proceed with my usual face oil & moisturizer, and with Belief’s Moisturizing Eye Bomb I received in my last Ipsy bag. Eye Cream is essential to moisturize the under eyes, and I’m loving what these products have been doing to my skin altogether. I hardly ever add any new skincare products to my routine, but I am now more open to branching out.

Continuing with beauty products . .

This year I’ve definitely jumped on the more “natural” band wagon, and after seeing great reviews on Erborian’s CC Creme, I decided to give it a try.

I’m loving this CC Creme on my no makeup- makeup days, especially in this triple digit weather. Something really cool about this CC Creme is that it comes out in a white moisturizing cream form, but once blending it to the skin it transforms & blends with your skin complexion. I like applying this best with my hands, and I bring in the Beauty Blender later when it comes to concealer.

For concealer, I’ve really been loving NARS’ Radiant Creamy Concealer lately. I’ve used Tarte’s Shape Tape for years, and I finally decided to give something else a chance & I love the more natural finish NARS gives. Again, obsessed with anything natural right now, as I’m truly trying to embrace the skin I’m in.

If I had to choose 2 products that were a must for me, Im almost 100% sure I’d pick concealer and a brow product. Right now I’m using ABH Brow Wiz, and I go back and forth between this and her Brow Powder.

As for blush, I recently started to use a creme blush on the days I use cc creme, and I am OBSESSED.Β Honest’s Truly Exciting Creme Blush is my jam right now, it is such a pretty rosy color, and it brings the perfect amount of color to the cheeks! I love applying this with my Beauty Blender.

I also like going in with Jouer’s Adore Blush DuoΒ to set the creme blush. I use the color on the right, and it finishes off the cheeks with a beautiful sheen!

Last but not least, Bobbi Brown’s lipstick collaboration with Sazan -Sazan’s Nude! It’s your perfect every-day wear color! I reach for this more than any other lipstick right now, especially when I’m going for a natural look.

(I couldn’t find her lipstick anywhere, but I found a similar color: here)

And that concludes my current favorites guys! What are some of your must-haves this summer? If you couldn’t already tell, I’m loving everything that gives a soft & natural finish!Β (Okay, I’ve seriously said “natural” one too many times now, but whatevs).

The older I get, the more I start to notice a difference in my skin. I still love a full face of glam 1 or 2 days out of the week, but realistically speaking, I don’t have the time nor do I want to walk around the house (or the grocery store) with a full beat face. Most days I enjoy looking like me, just a slightly better version.

I hope y’all enjoyed this post, and if you end picking up and trying something I mentioned here, please let me know! Wishing you all a Happy Fourth of July week!

See ya next Wednesday!

XO,
