I can't believe it's September.
Summer went by in an absolute flash, so as I anticipate the fall candles, rose toned blushes, and new cardigans I have pulling from my closet, I look back at my most reached for products of the last two months.
The Summer Favorites.
Fresh High Noon Tinted Primer: I feel like I'm on my last squirts of this tube. My second tube! A summer favorite of mine. This tinted primer mixed with my sunscreen was my everyday base. Gives a glowing and radiant finish, that provided that sheer tint of coverage I desired without the heaviness.
Would recommend this primer for dry skinned ladies. For normal and combo/oily ladies a touch of powder is all you need to top.
Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage: I keep flip flopping on this one. I think I finally figured out how to use this, and love the two sides of this duo to prove it's versatility. Now that the primer gave me a bit of color I can really utilize the darker shade of this product. The lasting power is good, I can see why oily skinned gals love this, but I have to make sure my skin is super hydrated when I apply this for the best finish. Lovely coverage and I can see the reason for the hype. Best in my opinion when pin point concealed with a tiny brush!
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in Bronze: As a highlighter I thought this was a bit meh to be honest. It did not last long on the skin, but once I applied it over a peach blush it became a WHOOSH winner!
Not only did it provide the perfect amount of sheen, and bronzed color to my cheeks for that great summer look, but I was able to cut the bronzer step out from my routine for lazy days, and looked healthy without it due to this baby. Glad I shopped my stash for this!
MAC Peaches: One of my favorite blushes of all time. Pale or tanned this does me no wrong, and paired with the bronze shimmer brick, makes me love it 10x more!
Les Beiges Healthy Glow Sheer Powder Shade 30: I absolutely love this stuff....
I take a big bronzer kabuki type brush and apply this all over the contours of my face like a bronzer and it just adds that no make up and healthy skin look.
I tend to wear this alone without blush or highlight, because it really radiates on it's own I believe, and have no regrets on this purchase!
Chanel Tan de Soilel: Using the method I described here, this baby has been getting alot of love. Sometimes I wear this paired with the shimmer brick and it creates a great summer face.
Sonia Kashuk Tinted Brow Gel: I believe there is only shade this is sold in, but I see it as being quite universal. Ashy and cool. Since I dyed my hair none of my brow powders looked right but this one seemed to work! Also the ease! No brushes, no spooly, no brow gel later, this is a Target gem for the lazy brow routine folks like me!
Maybelline One by One Mascara Waterproof: Another drugstore gem I have just discovered. I am all about length and not so much volume to the lashes. I'm also huge on the natural, one coat of mascara person. For nights out I can apply 3-4 coats of this stuff and it never clumps! Amazing and a must try for those who love defined lashes.
GAP Dream More: This little plastic bottle has been in my bag all summer. Spritz in the morning, a little before a night out, and the clean and non offensive scent seemed like a summer must have.
So that's all my favorite products for the last two months.
If you had any amazing summer finds, please share!
