Morning Lovelies! Sorry for this super late July Favorites! I took a little week-long break from blogging to just relax, but now I'm back and ready to roll! There have been so many exciting things that I've been using this month, and I CAN'T WAIT to share them!!Read More
I tested several high-end foundations before deciding on the CHANEL Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation. I had pretty much made up my mind when my mother complimented me on "my skin" almost every single time I wore it! It has a medium, but bulidable coverage, and sits a bit middle-of-the-road in terms of finish. It's not quite matte, but not quite dewy either. You can definitely play up either finish depending on what primer you use under it (I recommend the BECCA Backlight Primer for a glowy/dewy finish, and Benefit Porefessional for matte). An added bonus particularly for fair girls, is it's SPF 25 (woot!) to keep those sun-rays off skin every single day.Read More
This month, I'm getting excited for light, glowy makeup, beachy hair, and bright, fun, summer clothing!
Everything from J.Crew, naturally.
Pale blues, stripes gingham, tassels, & bows! J.Crew's spring/summer line is the perfect mix of classic and trendy! My top favorites? This chambray shirt with Ryder pants, gingham slingback flats, and robins-egg-blue beaded tassel earrings. And if that's not enough, this gingham clutch adds the final punch!
Super Glowy Makeup
Lately, my makeup has been all about that glow-factor. Pairing down on the foundation coverage and amping up that lit-from-within, healthy glow! Becca Backlight Primer is a cult-product and I'm dying to get my hands on this best seller! Right behind that, is two Hourglass bits, their new luminizing primer, and another cult-favorite, the ambient lighting powders! But of course, that natural, dewy glow can't happen without taking care of your skin, so......
And finally, a far underrated brand that should be on everyone's bathroom counter, Kiehl's. I recieved a sample of their Daily Reviving Concentrate in my Birchbox this past month, and oh sweet mama, it's a miracle in a bottle. (bold claim, I know) Not only has my acne almost vanished, but the overall texture and brightness of my skin is noticeably much better! To the point where I have started occasionally going without any makeup on my skin! (which has not happened since the eighth grade) After seeing this miracle in action, I'm dying to pick up the cleanser, eye treatment, and whatever else I can get my hands on!
