Despite being crazy busy with the move, I forced myself to sit down and make time for a July favorites post! Mostly because I have a lot this month.
Estee Lauder Double Wear Light foundation
This stuff has been a life save for summer. It gets so hot and humid here in Georgia and makeup tends to sweat right off. Not the case for this foundation, it does great with heat and humidity in staying put and not fading. Plus it has an SPF!
Vaseline Spray and Go Lotion
I use this in the cocoa butter version and it is a great time saver and really does a good job moisturizing my skin. It really sinks in and leaves the skin soft and not greasy at all. I'm sure the aloe version would feel fantastic on your skin if you've been out in the sun a lot.
Milani Eyeshadow in Bella Champagne
Milani recently released a newly formulated range of single eyeshadows that can be worn wet or dry. They have a very soft texture and this particular shade is a great all over the lid shade to brighten up the eyes. It can always be a great highlight shade. I like to just use my fingers to apply this to get the best color payoff.
NYX Mineral Stick Foundation in 09 Caramel
In trying to experiment more with cream contouring I came across this stick foundation at Ulta. I believe this is the darkest shade in the range and so far I really like using it for a cream contour. I apply it lightly along my hairline and in the hollows of my cheeks and using a medium blending brush to blend it into my foundation.
Revlon Kissable Balm Stain in Honey
This is an oldie but a goodie. I've been using this for a few years now and it is almost always in my purse. It's a perfect pinky-mauve 'your lips but better' shade that leaves behind a nice pink stain. It lasts for hours and it very moisturizing on the lips. You can almost apply it without a mirror, it's that fool proof!
The Balm's Frat Boy Blush
This is a great summer blush shade that looks good on so many different skin tones. The formula is so soft and buttery and it blends like a dream. It's a coral-peachy shade with the very faintest amount of shimmer. Not chunks of glittery but a fine mist of glow. This paired with a good bronzer is a fantastic look for summer.
Freeman Charcoal and Black Sugar Face Mask
My skin gets really dull from time to time and the texture isn't always great. This face scrub/mask really does a fantastic job at exfoliating the skin and leaving it super smooth and rejuvenated. I use this once or twice a week usually before bed and it keeps my skin texture soft and smooth.
Urban Decay Lipgloss in 'Liar'
I've never been a huge lipgloss person but this range of lipgloss is really nice. Very moisturizing and smooth, not at all sticky feeling. The color 'Liar' is a great pink-nude, everyday color. This is great on it's own or paired over any pink or nude lipstick. I like to wear it over a bit of lipliner filled in all over the lips.
Maybelline Color Tattoo in 'Bad to the Bronze'
This is another one I've had for forever and it is a rediscovered favorite. This is such a great shade for summer and I love to just wear it all over the lid by itself with a little dark brown eyeliner. You can wear it alone or use it as a base for a bronze smokey eye. The color tattoos stay on forever and don't crease so they are also a great pick for summer.
So those are all my favorite products for the month of July! Hopefully my next post with be from the comfort of our new house :)
