June Favorites

Hey Everyone!

It’s June Favsss!!  I know this is a bit tardy since it’s the 2nd week of July already…but never late than never…right!! J  Soo..for the month of June, I don’t have much to feature.  Only because some may be redundant, so I didn’t feel a need to reintroduce everything, and of course it’s been a whirlwind of a month so I haven’t been able to try new things and they be considered some of my favorites.  Anyhow, lets get started…

Since it’s been hot hot hot, I’ve been loving these two makeup products for the eyes.  They definitely hold up in hot weather conditions:

Makeup Forever Aqua Eyes Liner
My favorite color is 11L.  It’s a nice rich purple color that compliments my brown eyes…and is a perfect pop of color but also a bit subtle

Maybelline Color Tattoo
My favorite shade I’ve been using is ‘bad to the bronze’.  It’s a nice rich brownish bronze color perfect for a summery sunkissed-bronzy look.  I use this as a base/primer before applying my eyeshadow (Woodwinked from MAC…another fav color)

MAC Fix+ Spray
Although this is technically not a setting spray; however, it acts as one on my skin.  I use in the beginning my makeup application to help refresh my skin (it’s original purpose), and then once I’m completed with my face I use again to set but also to take away the powdery look

I thought I’d throw in a favorite from my pro makeup kit
Ardell Lashes # 120 Demi

Love love love this pair.  These lashes are the best applying on most of my clients, I seem to grab for this style often.  And my clients love these as well.  They have the perfect natural wispy look, yet there’s still a bit of drama that helps give that umph to your lashes…especially in photos

Non Makeup Favs

SunBum Lotion

I picked this up in LA at Kitson….and I just love this smell.  It’s like you’re at the beach sunbathing soaking up the rays.  So when I can’t make it the beach or just sit out and sunbath for that matter, I just have a sniff of my arm to get my fix. LOL

I have been in love with wedges this season.  So my feet have been living in these wedges for some time now…hahaha!!  They are by Charles David, another gem I picked up in LA a few weeks ago, and have been wearing them almost every week.  LOL!!  And sooo comfortable I can run in them…okay not sprint, but you get the idea.  (I need to get new pairs so I don’t wear these out….an excuse for another shopping trip J)

I recently picked up this curling by Conair, I think it’s their professional line.  Anyhow, I was in a pinch because mine broke on me while in the middle of getting ready for an appointment, and low n behold I need to finish my other side of hair.  So I rushed out to Ulta since that’s the closest beauty store to me, grabbed this gem and viola I have been loving it since.  It gets really hot which is perfect so I don’t need to hold the barrel so long in my hair, I believe it’s an 1 ½ inch barrel and it just curls amazing.  It actually makes my locks look very full and luscious

This concludes all my favs that I have been adoring for the month of June.  I promise July will be better, because I’m going out of town again to the South, and I will be buying new makeup products to help me survive in that viscous heat. J  I’m not going to go all crazy and apply loads of makeup, BUT…I still want to look glam but effortless.  I think I plan on picking up a few BB creams to try and a few cream blushes, maybe a new setting powder as well.  Sooo look out for next months favorites for sure….I will feature some special stuff I just know….I’ll be on shopping hunts finding new gems to share

Anyhow…..hope you all are enjoying your summer so far.  Stay cool yet enjoy the weather……and until the next post, have a good day!

Ciao Beauties! J xo
