Summer is right around the corner chicas! Time to get all bronzy, glossy, and shimmered up! I truly love summer and how it enhances you inner bronzed goddess. It’s all about lightweight fresh glowy skin, and bam you’re ready for your upcoming summer. Let’s take a look at which products are about to make my summer shine!
With my oily skin, I like to keep the oil production down and pores blurred for a perfect canvas before applying foundation. There are two different primers, the first is Cover Fx, the blurring Primer & Pore Minimizer, and the second is Erborians Extra Matte Primer. My pores become diminished and my t-zone stays nice and under control.
The newest to my collection is Mia Del Mar primer, which is actually silicone free. This primer is awesome at keeping your skin hydrated with coconut, pomegranate and vitamin E. It lets your skin breathe while keeping your makeup intact all day but yet still feeling lightweight on the skin.
Whether it’s a night out on the town, or just some coverage for a day at the beach, these next two foundations are perfect! I love having options, so of course I have a high-end option, and a drugstore option for you chicas. L’Oréal recently came out with the Infallible 24hr Fresh Wear Foundation. This looks so beautiful on the skin and really smoothes everything out and most importantly lasts all day. I honestly don’t know about the 24hr claim though, but I trust it for at least 8-10 hours.
For my high-end option I have chosen the IT Cosmetics Your SKIN BUT Better CC+ Oil Free Matte Full Coverage Cream + Anti-Aging Serum. WOW that’s a long name!! This is literally amazingness in a tube. While you are going about your day looking freshly covered, you are also turning the clock and adding skin care! Both foundations contain SPF to protect you from the sun, and you can also control how much coverage you would like.
The one and only Jeffree Star came out with concealers and correctors, and they are definitely worth the hype! I bought the Peach Corrector to help conceal my dark circles and the concealer in the shade C7. Both of these items used together are a match made in heaven. They get the job done and feel so lightweight on the skin, and never look cakey. Plus, they both contain antiaging properties to help with fine lines, and wrinkles! Now that is what I call a legit combo.
When the brand Jouer Cosmetics came out with a face powder I knew I had to get my hands on it right away! It is called the Soft Focus Hydrate + Set Powder. It’s such a silky setting powder that helps reduce shine, but still hydrates my skin with loving ingredients like Vitamin E and Hyaluronic Acid. It does not make your makeup look cakey, and does not settle into fine lines. It really does give you that filtered photo ready skin finish.
Bronzing my face is one of my favorite steps to my makeup routine. I just feel like a bronzed goddess and become unstoppable. I have two fabulous ones to complete your bronzing needs. At the drugstore, you can find the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer. First off, this bronzer smells like a delicious tropical drink! This rich bronzer has a formula that makes it so easy to blend on to the skin. It contains pro-vitamins and fatty acids to moisturize the skin.
NOW, oh honey, when Rihanna came out with bronzers I was so ready to get my hands on them! This bronzer is a long wear, transfer resistant formula that looks so stunning on the skin. These bronzers contain Mango and Papaya extracts to give the skin a nice healthy glow. Honestly, Fenty Beauty kills the game!
The Brand Mia Del Mar from Miami has been killing the game with their amazing products. When I saw their Flamingoals Blush Palette, I fell in love instantly. If you’re in the market for a pigmented blush, look no further. This palette has 9 beautiful pink shades that just give me life. There are both shimmery and matte finishes to choose from. These blushes are long lasting and a mega plus is that they are Vegan and Cruelty free.
The brighter the highlight the closer to God chicas. Rihanna’s line, Fenty Beauty has an amazing highlighter formula that is so long wearing and weightless that will have you the center of attention in any room. She came out with a new duo in the shades Afternoon Snack (soft bronzed champagne) and Mo’ Hunny (supercharged bronzed champagne shimmer). This is the perfect duo for summer!
For the summer time I don’t want to fuss with the heavy feeling of liquid lipsticks and just have some plump, glossy, juicy, lips. Here I go again with Fenty Beauty lol BUT the Gloss Bomb in the shade Fenty Glow, you get everything you could ever need in your life! This shade is universal and works on all skin tones. It contains Shea Butter to keep them plump and hydrated. This lip gloss also has a nonsticky formula that will leave you set for the day.
No one wants raccoon eyes when trying to take cute pictures at the beach! The Kush Waterproof Mascara from Milk makeup is genius! It is vegan, cruelty, talc, gluten, and paraben free. It has a nice thick bush with a formula that provides long-lasting volume, length, and curl.
With the sun beaming down on us harder and stronger in the upcoming months, you want to make sure that your makeup is not going to slide all very the place. Cover Fx High Performance Setting Spray does an amazing job. It contains an alcohol free formula that dries quickly and will also protect your face from pollution.
I am going to be going on some tropical vacations soon, and I want my WHOLE BODY to be glowing every day. The brand Sol De Janero is a Brazilian company that came out with Glow Motions Glow Oils. These glow oils will highlight and moisturize your body from head to toe. It has such a delicious scent that makes you want to lick yourself. They have different shades to choose from. I chose the Copa Cabana Bronze which is a warm bronze tint. These are also transfer resistant which means your clothes will not get stained!
With so many summer products out in the market, there is certainly something for everyone to get their summer goddess glow on!
Stay Beautiful Chicas!
