Oh my, it’s July already! Seriously, time needs to slow way down. Day after day, I find myself wondering, “Where did the time go?” My summer is not really close to over, but the way time has been flying I’m sure it will end sooner than expected. Overall, I’ve stuck to my routine as planned: read some great books, put in quality hours at work, hit the gym, took a couple classes found on Living Social (I recently attended a nice little photography class), and relaxed! As the door shuts upon June, it’s time to look at this past month’s favorites. This June, I’ve been obsessed with a makeup technique called strobing <all things highlighter>. Now, I must admit, it took me a minute to learn this method of application. For this month’s faves, you will notice a lot of makeup products perfect for this highlighting technique!
I adore this little beauty! Best $10 I’ve ever spent. It’s such an easy product to use, and it gives your skin a youthfully-glowing look. All one pump you need is of the illuminator mixed in with your favorite foundation. I apply it using a foundation brush, and then blending it in with my trusty beauty blender.
2. Victoria’s Secret Beach Sexy Instant Bronzing Tinted Shimmer Lotion
Who knew tinted lotion was such a go-to item this past month? After having a tanning sesh poolside, I love applying a these kinds of lotions to make my tan appear extra shimmery and golden. This product, once again, adds that extra summer glow we all love. I’m telling you, this summer is all about the glow for me!
After years of being hooked on my Naked (1) palette, I never thought I’d give any other palette a chance. That is until my sweet, future mother-in-law gave me the Its Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Palette. Let’s just say I’m obsessed! This palette truly is one-of-a-kind. It’s a matte palette that can instantly transform into a sparkly wonderland in seconds, all thanks to the transforming highlighter section. I can go from work to happy hour in a flash with this adorable duo palette. Thanks mama Sandy!
I recently discovered this product while I was shopping at Ulta. It caught my eye because of its shape; honestly, that’s all it took! These pretty little pearls give my skin a subtle yet bronzy look. I apply it to my cheekbone area to give that extra needed shadow.
One weekend in hot June, the mister and I headed to a bazaar. My favorite thing to do is attending crafty events in my town, so there’s no way I’d pass it up! I ran into a jeweler whom was selling these adorable rope bracelets. So, I picked one up, and have worn it constantly ever since.
There’s nothing like simple jewelry to give your outfit an effortlessly chic look. These beauties stay on my ears all day. I can wear these earrings to work or on a nice date night in the city.
7. White Skinny Jeans
Literally, I live in my white skinny jeans (not really…). I probably own more than three pairs; that’s how much I love white skinnies. Plus, I have a tendency to spill stuff on them from time to time, so I have backups just in case. They are not only cute but also super comfy too!
What were some of your favorites for the month of June?
