Re: Summer Favorites

YSL mascaras have a pleasant scent as well. But Guerlain definitely knocked it out of the park with this one!

Re: Summer Favorites

Fun post!

 

Lip product- really grooving on my Starlooks lip liner, so creamy!
Eye shadow- Keeping it simple with my awesome Laura Mercier Artist Palette for Eyes.  Love that the dark mattes also double as really good eyeliners with a damp brush!
Mascara- Still going strong with L'Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes.  How did I ever live without tube mascara???
Blush- Becca Beach Tint in Watermelon, or Tarina Tarantino when I want some pop
Primer- Keep forgetting to apply this, probably because it feels gross after all those other layers of skincare, esp in the hot humid summer!
Finishing powder/spray- hellooooo Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder!  Or sometimes Lancome Dual Finish
Makeup Look- Sadly, full coverage foundation to hide acne/scars, everything else very toned down and minimal
Nail polish colorSo totally into nudes, may never go back to color!

Re: Summer Favorites

Oh lord, glitter polish is such a PITA to get off! I need to invest in some pure acetone- I'm always impressed when I go to get my toes done and the lady can remove my polish so easy with that stuff! Thanks for your thoughts on the BB cream, definitely sounds like something I'd want to try! Smiley Happy

Re: Summer Favorites

My husband was horrified the first time I picked up acetone at the hardware store for heavy duty nail polish remover, hah! I swear it is magic though.

The things we do to look good! Smiley Very Happy
