Beauty Products I've been Loving
Garnier Micellar WaterThis has been a life saver for me when I get home and can't bothered to wash my face, but want to remove makeup. I also use this with a q tip to clean up my eye makeup when i'm getting ready. I also love that this is so gentle on my eyes, I tried a micellar water that stung the hell out of my eyes, but this is much more gentle.
Urban Decay All NighterThis has been my O.G setting spray for a while, but for whatever reason I stopped using it. Recently, I put this back in my makeup routine because it has been so hot and my makeup has literally been melting off my face during the day. This is literally the first packaging this came in, but i found a left over bottle and decided to use it and I have not been sorry. Essential for summer nights so that makeup doesn't melt off.
Nyx Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in "Jet Set"I never thought I could or would want to pull off a blue lip. Jet set has totally changed my mind. It is the most gorgeous purple toned navy and is actually quite wearable. This has been my go to minimal eye/ bright look lip. I also love the formula of the Liquid Suede lips because although they may not be transfer proof. They are so comfortable and fairly long wearing. I did a post on some of my favorite colors and a review here.
Naked Skin ConcealerThis has been my go to concealer this month. I typically use the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye but its been hot af and the Urban Decay Concealer feels lighter but still has the same amount of coverage. I have been using this as my go to when I am not wearing foundation but need a little coverage. It sets well with my beloved Laura Mercier Translucent powder.
Beauty Treats Almond Lip Scrub
I swear no matter how much water I drink and lip balm I apply my lips are always on slight crusty. I picked up this scrub on a whim at a store in my local mall and it has been a heaven sent blessing! This scrub is basically a sugar scrub that smooths out the lips and keep them from flaking through the day. I usually do the scrub about twice a week before I start my makeup and then apply balm while I finish. This is also like 2 bucks so it's definitely a must have.
Ruby Kisses Mineral Powder FoundationIf you can't tell by now, I love my beauty supply store makeup. Ruby Kisses has awesome products and I have been using this powder as my every day contour shade. This powder melts into the skin and mimics a natural shadow so well. These powder also come in lighter colors, that would definitely work for much fairer skin as a contour shade. Try these out, you will not be disappointed.
Covergirl SuperSizer FibersI actually received this mascara from Influenster and I am so glad they sent it to me. I love this for my bottom lashes. It adds the perfect amount of length and volume. There is also no flaking with this mascara. Literally, I have been wearing this mascara everyday I got it and I will be repurchasing it when I run out of the one they sent me.
Kiss EyeLash Applicator
This little tool has been a game changer for me. I wear falsies like 95% of the time when I wear makeup because I'm extra and I used to apply them with my finger. This lash applicator is like 4 bucks and makes applying lashes much easier. The curve in the top makes it much easy to get the lashes to apply perfectly to the lash line. I loved this so much that I picked up a few for my purse and some to give to my friends who I know struggle with putting lashes on.
What I have been wearing

T-Shirt DressesSummer style is all about simplicity for me. The less I have to put on the better. T-shirt dresses are basically pajamas you can wear outside of the house except you look really cute and casual. I literally have 3 on rotations on the weekends, but the two above are my faves!
Boa Feather Slides - I have been obsessed with boa feathers for forever! So when I saw these shoes in a local shoe store I had to have them. They are so adorable and the best part is that they aren't a slipper so you can actually wear them out of the house. I have been pairing these with so many different casual outfits. They are also super affordable, so I will definitely been picking up more colors.
