I'm not even going to say how fast this year is flying by as we all know that! It's kind of a bummer that we're in the last month of summer. I love summers and look forward to it every year (who doesn't, unless you live in a warm climate already!) though I don't really like using so much make-up during these months. Here are the products I reached for the most in July..
MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Stereo Rose
Do I even need to say anything?
NYC Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in Sunny
This is great for my complexion, looks so natural and does not cake. You can see how much I love it by looking at the picture above, I hit pan!!
MAC Lipstick in Jazzed
My favorite pinky coral lipstick these days! I don't find it too bright like some others do. It's not a nude color obviously but in my case and for my skin tone it provides just the right amount of color.
Illamasqua Blush in Lover
It's actually pretty much the same as MAC's Peaches which I also own. The only reason I frequent Lover more is because it's portable and Peaches isn't as I have it in pan form.
Milani Liquif'eye Metallic Eye Liner Pencil & MAC Eye Shadow in Omega
I use this combination quite a lot. Omega is a beautiful taupe/beige color which quickly became one of my favorite neutral eye shadows. I have semi-oily eyelids and I personally hate the oily eyelid look, so to avoid that I use Omega. It's hard to tell whether I have anything on my lids while using Omega, for that reason it can be easily used during daytime if you want a toned down look. Liquif'eye is an amazing drugstore eyeliner that lasts all day! It's a must-have for summer for ladies who cannot live without their black eyeliner such as moi!
Barry M Nail Paint in Pink Flamingo
Pink Flamingo is a gorgeous bright pink nail polish that I love now that I am more tanned. I don't think I've used any other nail polish last month!
elf Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter
Elf continues to amaze me! This concealer works like a charm in my case. It does a wonderful job covering up any flaws under my eyes and if used in conjunction with the highlighter, I get a more rested and awake look that I love. I seriously look forward to using this everyday!
My grandparents celebrated their 50th anniversary today!!! Half a century...it's pretty amazing! I love my grandparents to pieces and wish them many more happy and wonderful years together! :)
The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and richness to life that nothing else can bring.
