This month marks the beginning of sweat, heat, beach, tanning, sun…basically it marks the beginning of summer. For this month, I picked out some of my favorite items that I cannot live without during summer.
Ultra Radiance, facial re-hydrating mist by Benefit Cosmetics
This product is a must-have, not only it sets well my makeup but it also refreshes my face and hydrates it without making it look oily. This is actually my second bottle, I’ve been using this product this last summer but I only use it during hot days [not in fall or winter].
Dream satin liquid foundation by Maybelline
I’ve recently purchased this product and since then, I’ve been wearing it non-stop. I have a combination skin so a matte foundation dries my skin and a foundation for normal skin makes my face look too oily: this foundation has a beautiful satin finish [at the end of the day, your face won’t look too shinny], it gives a medium to full coverage, it does not look cakey, it doesn’t crease, it is long-lasting, it diminishes the appearance of pores, and it feels light weight. On top of all that, it has SPF 13, which I think is important.
Color Riche, ‘630, Beige a nu’ by L’Oreal Paris
This lipstick is probably my favorite of all time because first, the color matches perfectly my natural lip color and my skin tone so for an everyday makeup look, this color is perfect. Second, it is so comfortable to wear and is moisturizing. Third, it’s very pigmented and even though it is not long lasting, the color does not completely fade out, at the end of the day.
Refreshing Deodorant, Green Tea From China by Yves Rocher
This deodorant is perfect for summer, because it is so refreshing: it smells so fresh and it makes you feel fresh all day. I tried other smells from their deodorant collection but this one works the best for me and does a good job at keeping my arm pits free from sweat.
Wanted Blush, Sculpting Cinnamon by Helena Rubinstein
This is my current favorite blush, I wear it on a daily basis: the shade is stunning and very subtle, I think it’s the perfect shade for summer [for my skin tone of course]. It is not matte and that’s why I like it; it has shimmers hence, it gives a subtle highlight to your cheek bones and it warms your face at the same time.
One piece swimsuit [TEA IM00029] by Calzedonia
Honestly, I was never into one piece swimsuits but when I saw this one, I fell in love and now it’s my favorite swimsuit: I really love that fact that it is opened from the front and back, it is just so sexy and flattering – I got it from Calzedonia’s newest collection, so you might still find it in stores.
I am not sure where I got those earrings because I bought them a long time ago but I only recently started to wear them. I really love them because they give a nice gothic and exotic look to my outfit. Moreover, they look so flattering when I tie my hair in a messy bun.
