I am so excited to announce that I am finally done with school, so I will have a little more time to blog! YAY! Exciting things are happening right now for us, we just moved to Grand Rapids from Gaylord which was a huge but super exciting change. We are still trying to buy a house so things are a little hectic. I can’t wait to share with you all of the changes happening as they come. xoxo
As summer is coming to a sad, sad end, I thought it would be a good time to write about the things I could not live without the past 3 months. There are always products we use seasonally but I feel like during summer especially, we need some extra help. From the hot melting-my-face-off days, to the waterproof necessities, here are my end of summer favs, enjoy!
Tarte Smooth Operator Finishing Powder
This is perfect because it is pressed, so it’s easy for travel, which we tend to do more during the summer. It also smooths the look of my pores and sets my makeup so I am less likely to get oily throughout the day. I love this over my foundation or just over a primer/BB cream. It is also free of talc so it won’t settle in lines.
It Cosmetics Brow Power
I have been in love with this pencil because it gives just enough color to fill in brows while looking natural. You can also get a bold brow by pressing harder with this universal taupe color. I am looking forward to more bold dramatic brows this fall!
Yes to Cucumber Facial Towlettes
I loveeeeeee these wipes especially during the summer months. I cannot live without them. The cucumber is so refreshing. I love taking my makeup off with these before I am ready to deep clean my face for the day or just during the day when it’s super hot out/while I’ve been in the sun.
Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herb, & Rosewater
Another perfect product for after sun exposure. The aloe in this is super calming and cooling while the rosewater reduces bacteria while soothes skin. Read all about rosewater benefits here.
Alterna Bamboo Beach Summer Sunshine Spray
This has been my sunscreen for hair this summer. It smells great and leaves my hair soft and protected.
Bare Minerals Locked & Coated Waterproof Lash Topcoat
This is only $12 and can waterproof any mascara, genius if you ask me. I don’t use waterproof mascaras because of them being so permanent, and not coming off without a fight, so this is absolutely perfect for once in awhile use.
What could you NOT live without this summer? What are you excited about for fall? I love comments!
