This list of my Summer ’16 beauty favs is in order of importance to my everyday routine. All five items were crucial to my summer and hopefully, they will help you guys in the future. So grab a pen and pad and take notes dolls!
Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector
A major issue that I deal with as far as my skin, particularly in the summer season is being oily. It’s a big pain in the ass, especially when I’m trying to slay! Having to always ask my friends “Is my nose oily?” or constantly reaching in my bag for a makeup brush to dab out the excess oil, it started to get annoying. But after watching a few youtube videos, and seeing so many people brag about this primer I had to try it out and it works! The Becca Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector is a life saver! It works like a piece of blotting paper or my old faithful oil dabbing brush I kept in my bag. It gives such a smooth canvas to do your makeup and reduces shine. I love it and definitely plan on keeping it around.
Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow-Toast
I can honestly say this is my FAVORITE eyeshadow. Its warm neutral tone makes for the perfect lid color. It went with every makeup look I did this summer. To spice it up some days, I would add some gold glitter on top of the Bobbi Brown-Toast. One thing I really appreciated about this eyeshadow is its pigmentation. For such a light color it showed very well and lasted all day. This product will be transitioning into the fall season with me for sure!
Kat Von D Tatto Liner-Trooper
I have a bit of a confession (covers eyes) lol. Okay so before this summer I couldn’t do a wing for my life! I tried sooo many different gel liners and watched endless youtube tutorials and still no wing! But shoutout to my friend Lynn that works for MAC; she suggested this Kat Von D Tattoo Liner and it changed my life! And yes I’m using exclamation marks because I’m typing this with so much enthusiasm because I’m obsessed! This liner is so easy to use because of the tip and the color is such a dark black that it makes your wing stand out against any eyeshadow. Two words- IN LOVE.
Bobbi Brown Bronze Shimmer Brick
Major Key! (Dj Khaled voice) lol. No, but seriously the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick is sorta like a big deal! You know the saying “big things come in small packages” well it definitely applies to this product. I use this for my highlight and it adds that little extra POW to my makeup looks. It’s perfect for when you want some highlight but you don’t want to do the absolute most and blind everyone lol. And a little goes a long way with this shimmer I don’t pile it on at all. It’s awesome and leaves my skin looking so glowy and shimmery!
Sephora Lipgloss-Perfect Nude
For some reason the summer season just makes me wants to put on some popp’n ass lip gloss and that’s exactly what Sephora’s Lip Gloss in Perfect Nude is. It goes on super smooth and last pretty long. It doesnt have the best taste but it does smell good and serves it’s purpose. My lip gloss has been popp’n all summer ’16!
