I can’t believe my birthday month is already over! There is so much to look forward to in July though- we are getting together with some great friends for the fourth of July, we have a wedding to attend the following weekend, and lots of other plans that I can’t remember that are (hopefully) written down somewhere. And today, I’m so excited that I have an ultrasound! I am 29 weeks along now and due to a lapse in our insurance I haven’t had an appointment since 15 weeks so I’m pretty excited to say the least! Today I share with you some of my favorite products that I’ve been reaching for daily!
I’ve been using my Tracy Reese for Clinique makeup bag to stow all my stuff when we travel. We have been traveling almost every weekend this summer so it was easy to create this favorites list- these are the things I’ve been bringing with me wherever we go!
For eyes, I’ve been loving my Clinique Chubby Stick in Grandest Gold. You can read my review here. It’s the perfect natural and sheer shade for my eyes and looks great with a slight tan and on minimalist makeup days. For brows, I’m constantly reaching for my Brow Power Universal Pencil. It is super easy to use and creates a really natural yet defined eyebrow. If you are interested in checking it out, you should snap it up in this QVC kit I reviewed. My lashes have been loving the Make Up For Ever Waterproof Smoky Extravagant Mascara. You can read more about it here. It’s been raining cats and dogs where I live lately, and even when it’s not it’s super humid outside, so waterproof is a must. Months ago, I picked up YSL Touche Éclat- Radiant Touch in shade 1.5 and didn’t use it much this winter. I’ve been using it a ton lately to brighten up under my eyes. I apply it over whatever concealer I’m using and it gives my under eye area just a little extra oomph.
There are two palettes I’ve been gravitating towards lately. The It Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Palette has been awesome. It contains a brightening powder, bronzer, and blush and really works with any makeup I decide to wear that day. I think it’s only available via this QVC kit and you can read my review here. The other palette I am loving is Too Faced Natural Eyes palette. This is an awesome little palette. I have a review coming soon. Just know that it’s a total must have for me lately and is great for exactly what it says- creating natural eyes.
The last two items I have been toting around with me everywhere this summer are a perfume and a sunscreen! L’occitane’s Verbena perfume has been rocking my world lately. It’s such a refreshing, bright, and lemony scent which is definitely not for everyone but has really been what I’m craving lately. Full review to come soon. Lastly, Neutrogena Wet Skin for Kids sunscreen stick has been a product I’ve used on my daughter almost daily this summer. It’s perfect for applying sunscreen to your kiddies that won’t melt off or get in their eyes. It’s a total lifesaver for us!
