June and July 2013 Favorites: Bright Lips and Model Legs

Hi everyone!

June & July 2013 Favorites

June and July flew by quickly. It's a bittersweet summer for me since this is the last school summer I'll ever have (I mean, how long do you have to work to save up enough time for a 3 month vacation?!). It's sweet because I have having such a great time at my internship!

I thought that since I was going to be in the office environment, I would be going more neutral. But I ended up being able to incorporate colors into my quick morning routine anyways! A few summers ago, I was obsessed with colorful matte eyeshadows. Since I can't do much of crazy colorful eyeshadows, I went with the bright lip trend this summer!

So here are my June and July favorites...In no particular order...

June & July 2013 Favorites


1. Sally's Beauty: MetaGrip Premium Bob Pins (black)

My absolutely favorite bobby pins come from Sally's Beauty Supply. They have a strong hold and lasts a LOT more than a few uses like other bobby pins! And since everyone has a bobby-pin-stealing-monster, I have the 300 count bottle.

2. L'oreal Hydrafresh Toner

In the summer time, I use a toner in the morning rather than a cleanser. I don't have pollution on my face when I wake up, so there is no need to use a cleanser to strip my face of its natural oils. This toner is alcohol free and perfect for getting rid of some dust, etc, while keeping my skin supple and clean for the day. Do you know the difference between a toner and astringent

3. Urban Decay Deluxe Shadow Box

This cute palette is great to stick into a makeup bag! I love the versatility of the colors! I have been using green and blue constantly for undereye liner as a pop of color!

Plus! It's on sale for $10 USD on UrbanDecay.com!

4. Benefit they're Real! Mascara (black)

So this little guy was free from Sephora's Birthday Gift this year. Yes, that was back in January, but I finally tried this one out, and I do have to say...the hype is true! This mascara does absolute magic to my little lashes! I'm just not sure if I'm ready to shell out that much money for a mascara. Hmm.

5. Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter

Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter was received in the June Ipsy bag this year. I adore this little pencil! Perfect for inner corner of eyes, water-lining, cupids bow, etc

6. Milani Liquif'eye Metallic Eye Liner Pencil (04 Aqua)

Milani's entire line of Liquif'eye pencils are amazing. Brown and black may be staples, but this aqua one is my favorite. It's true to color and there are so many ways you can wear this! Remember the Urban Decay palette I just mentioned? The green and blue colors are fantastic over this liner!

7. Laura Mercier Secret Concealer (shade 1)

So, I have panda eyes, thus needing some decent coverage for my undereye area. This has been great for the summer months. It's lightweight, with a natural coverage.

8. Wet 'n' Wild Color Icon Reserve Your Cabana Bronzer 

A gorgeous light highlighter, I love to use this for my cheekbones! And seriously, the amount of product...I'll never run out. So confession: I have used this on my legs! *gasp* But it does give a really nice sheen, ESPECIALLY when the sun hits!

9. Nars Blush in Orgasm

A cult favorite, this blush made it to my summer favorites too! Applied with a light hand, it can give a beautiful glow to the cheeks!

10. Nars Blush in Lovejoy

I almost forgot about this gorgeous bronzer! It has more of a reddish-brown quality to it, which actually makes it more natural! I also have been wearing it as a light blush to pair the brighter lips....as you will down below.

11.  Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire & Ice

Bright lip trends are awesome! My red of the summer is this lipstick! It's more of an orange red instead of a blue red.

12. Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Sorbet

My more fuchsia choice of bright lipstick is this one. It's moisturizing and has a bold color!

13. be a bombshell Lipgloss in Hot Mess

Continuing the bright summer trends are lipglosses. This red gloss is pigmented on its own, but I love layering it over Revlon Fire & Ice for a more three dimensional look!

14. Mirabella Glimmer Gloss

This fuchsia lipgloss is another find from the Ipsy bags. So pretty! Again, I love layering it over the lipsticks mentioned above for more dimension!

15. Wet 'n' Wild Glassy Gloss Lip Gel in This Too Shall Glass

For those days that I want a more toned down look, I reach for this to tone down that bright lip! It has a really nice silvery baby pink quality.
