Summer Beauty Essentials

Last summer I was all about light, glowy makeup. 

You know the type.  A little highlighter there. Concealer, mascara. Bold lip. Done. "Less is more". This year I'm into full on cake face. All day every day. These products are basically what I've been reaching for for the past couple weeks. 

Tarteist X MakeupShayla Contour Palette

My new go to for contouring. I'm obsessed. I'm still using the lightest shade to carefully carve out my still nonexistent cheekbones. It's super pigmented and blends beautifully. And it smells like chocolate. Yes please! (Full post HERE)

Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Face Palette

I can not get enough of this palette you guys. My new fave combo is easily Prosecco Pop and Amaretto. They pair so lovely together and it makes for the most prettiest bronzed glow. So ideal for summer. By the way anyone pick up the new Champagne Splits?! (Full post HERE)

L'Oreal Pro Glow Foundation
I've been wearing this quite a lot over the past few weeks. It matches my skin tone perfectly and doesn't make me look ashy or cakey and is extremely affordable. What more can you ask for? I need to pick me up an actual summer shade now. I love it. (Full post HERE)

Wet N' Wild Setting Spray
No look is complete without a setting spray and I literally use this for everythinggg. Highlight. Eyeshadow. Set my face. Everythinggg! You name it.  To stay fresh and look less cakey I spritz my face about a dozen times and it brings life back to the skin.  I love it. And it's super cheap. Win win for me!

ColourPop Tansy & ABH Ashton
I have absolutely no idea what's going on this summer but I am all about the nude lip. My two go to's have been ColourPop Tansy and Anastasia Beverly Hills Ashton. Tansy is a beautiful medium toned yellow brown. It pairs perfectly with Prosecco Pop and Amaretto and feels absolutely fabulous on the lips. Very creamy. Ashton is basically my new favorite nude. This is one I can just throw on with a completely bare face and still look amazing. I love it. I love it. I love it. And you need it!

ColourPop Brow Pencil
A great alternative to the infamous ABH brow wiz. It's extremely affordable and like the norm for ColourPop has fantastic quality. It's super easy to use and surprisingly looks really natural. Definitely holy grail status. (Full post HERE)

L'Oreal Voluminous Miss Manga Mascara
To be honest I'm only using this mascara cause I haven't made it to the drug store yet. But I will say I definitely see a difference when I don't use it. It gets the job done. For now.

Maybelline FiT Me Concealer
I won't bore you since there are literally countless posts about this but let's just say it's my boo thang.

Maybelline Baby Skin Primer
Another key to flawless makeup is using a primer. I make sure to apply this every single time I wear makeup as it instantly smooths out any imperfections on the skin and helps a full face last all day in the scorching sun. So very necessary.

Ben Nye Banana Powder
I'm not really into baking that much nowadays. Shocker, I know. So instead I love using this to carve out my contour juuuust a bit more. I'll just pack this on right under my contour, let it sit for a few minutes and voila! Hello the most defined contour ever. PS if you haven't tried this technique yet then WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! I promise you'll love it. Thank me later.

Sorry guys. I've been on vacation this past week. And it was sooo lovely. I wish I could go back. Tear. Summer is finally hereeee! What are some of your summer beauty essentials? Is it Friday yet?! Ok bye.
