Last month I was a busy little bee, lots of stuff going on. So I’ve combined by July and August Favorites! Since I was busy, I wasn’t trying a lot of new things, and ended up just using a lot of the same stuff day to day since it was easier. It was light make up and messy buns most of the summer because there were like 1 million heat waves in Philadelphia. But today it is finally September and it’s a beautiful day out. And I’m inside blogging…
Marcelle BB Cream Golden Glow
When it’s hot out, I don’t want to apply too much make up since I know it will just melt off. I loved using the Marcelle BB Cream as a base for a little coverage and color. Then I’d go in with a mineral powder. The Marcelle Golden Glow is definitely packed with shimmer, so it’s not for oily skin types. It really needs a powder over top, but it does create a beautiful glow for the summer time.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Airbrush Foundation
On top of the Marcelle BB Cream I’d apply a thin layer of my new favorite mineral powder. The Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation applies evenly over the BB Cream and gives a really natural looking finish. It’s great by itself too! I love that I can apply a thin layer over my whole face, but go in with additional layers where I need extra coverage.
Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Primerose
Usually in the summer I’d be going for all the hot pink lipstick I can get my hands on, but this year I just wasn’t feeling it. Instead, I found myself reaching for Revlon Primerose all the time. It’s a beautiful light pink that looks great with glowy, tan skin. It goes with pretty much every outfit, so it’s an easy go to shade.
John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon
When there is a heat weave like the ones we’ve been having here, I usually put my hair up in a bun, pony tail or braid most days. When I bother to style it down, it really needs some help to look good. The John Frieda Secret Weapon is perfect for that! It’s a light weight cream that gives my hair something to hold onto without weighing it down too much. It’s one of my all time favorite products.
The Body Shop Satsuma Shower Gel
Summer scents are a must! Satsuma is the best smelling thing on the planet, and I can’t live without it during the summer. It’s so fresh and zesty, it wakes me up in the morning and gets me ready for the day. I rarely use it during the cooler months, it just doesn’t seem right. In the summer, it’s all I want to smell.
