| Camouflage | 

When it comes to summertime, there is nothing I hate more than wearing a full face of makeup. I have always been very minimalistic when it comes to using products on my skin and it has taken me awhile to find the perfect balance between achieving a medium to full coverage look while using little to no product. I think I’ve finally found my holy grail item for just that!

ºMaybelline Super Stay Better Skin Concealer + Corrector:  This product offers perfect coverage for your undereyes as well as for blemishes without looking thick or cakey. Also because this product is infused with ACTYL C, (an antioxidant), that actually works to help heal your skin. (Obviously I wouldn’t rely on this alone to heal acne).

  • Shade: In the winter I normally use this shade while in the summer I use this one.

ºTo Apply: Instead of putting the wand directly onto my undereyes and blemishes, I take the wand and dab a dime-sized amount of product onto the back of my hand. From there I take my Sonia Kashuk Multipurpose Brush, dab it into the product, and apply it on my skin with a light stippling motion. I don’t like putting the wand directly onto my face because I don’t want to transfer any dirt or impurity from my skin back into the product. This way, I can ensure that every single time I use my concealer, I’m not using a product that has been affected by use on troubled skin.

ºSonia Kashuk Flat Top Multipurpose Brush: I purchased my brush at Target as part of a Limited Edition four piece core makeup brush set. I absolutely love this brush because it doesn’t soak up a lot of product into the bristles and it blends my concealer so naturally. If you aren’t interested in purchasing this entire set of brushes, you can purchase the brush separately here!

| Sunkissed |

In my opinion, the next best thing to laying out in the summer months is creating a makeup look that resembles a sunkissed glow. For this reason, these two products have become my go-to items this summer. Here’s why I love these items so much and how you can get your hands on them!

ºMaybelline Fit Me BlushThis blush is in the shade 208 or Medium Nude. I love this product because it isn’t too shimmery where it looks like you’re walking straight out of the 90s but it does have a little sheen to it that perfectly captures the light. This shade really compliments your bone structure while offering your face an overall warm glow. I have olive skin so this may not work for you if you are fair or if you have a deeper skin tone. In that case, I suggest this shade for fair skin and this shade for deeper tones.

This product is also available at Bed Bath and Beyond and Buy Me Beauty. (I picked mine up at the local CVS).

ºSonia Kashuk Tapered BrushI purchased this brush as part of a set sold at Target! This brush is amazing because its shape lends an easy application for inexperienced to professional users and is amazing quality. I find that this brush does not soak up or grab too much product but allows you to transfer the pigment easily from the product to your skin. If you aren’t interested in purchasing this entire set at Target (although you get more for your dollar if you do!), then here is a great Sonia Kashuk brush alternative!

| Spring Lip Favorites |

As we cross the finish line of Spring and head into Summer (aka the best season), I thought I would share with you guys the lip products that I loved during Spring! Each of these shades could be worn in any season but I personally loved the way these products complemented my spring wardrobe. Comment down what your favorite spring lip product is!

 

ºMaybelline Color Blur: | Shade: Although the actual shade that I own is only available in certain stores (I’m Blushing!), the shade that is most comparable would be I Like to Mauve It. | This product is one of my all-time favorites because of how long-lasting it is! Not only is the formula matte but it also won’t make your lips dry or cracked. This product is double sided, one side with the lipstick and one side contains a smudger that you run over your lips to give the color that blurred effect. I would definitely recommend wearing a lip liner under it to give you a good base for longer wear.

This product is also available at: Ulta, Walgreens, and Amazon

ºMilani Amore Matte Lip Créme: |Shade 10: Adorable | You guys have already heard me talk about this product multiple times but I can’t help myself, I love it! This shade is a perfect transition from cold Winter months to Spring and even into early Summer. The formula is super long-lasting and dries very matte. I would suggest pairing this product with a lip liner as well just so the color has a good base to grab.

This products is also available at: Walgreens, Target, and CVS

ºRevlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor: | Shade: Comparable to HD Devotion and HD Intensity | This product I have had for a few months now and it has become one of my go-to’s because of its ability to compliment a variety of looks. The formula is very smooth and dries matte without being tacky. This product can be worn alone or paired with any lip liner (I personally don’t love the formula for Revlon’s lip liners).

This product is also available at: Ulta, Target, and CVS
