This weeks post is an exciting one because I have teamed up with three amazing bloggers Jasmine, Andrea and Melissa aka Melly. This is one of my favorite collabs I have done because we are all going to have something different that we are all loving for the month of July.
So here lately I have been trying out a lot of new beauty products, I have an addiction to anything beauty related so as soon as soon as I see something new come out I think I need it. Obviously I really don't but it is definitely nice getting to use something different every day in my morning routine. One thing I do not change though is my primer, which leads me to my first favorite for the month of July.
Concealer is definitely a must have in my makeup collection and since I have dry under eyes I have to be very selective with my concealer. I don't like anything to thick because it can look cakey and super creasy so when I ordered these L.A Girl pro conceal concealers I really didn't have high expectations even though everyone raved about them. At $2.99 a piece though it just didn't seem like I was going to get a good quality product but boy was I wrong!! These have been my go to concealers lately they are so easy to use because they have a little brush that you apply the product with and it is the perfect size for contouring my nose. These have great coverage and blend out very easily, I did not have a problem with creasing or looking to heavy. I ordered two of the lighter shades one for contouring and three of the correctors. The correctors are pretty great and you need very little product for them to do the job. I mainly have the green and yellow for my makeup kit because I don't have areas for those colors but I love the orange for nights when I didn't get a lot of sleep and I have dark circles. I just use a tiny little dot for both eyes and put on my concealer and boom I had 8 hours of sleep. The only thing I do not like about the contour color (in the shade toast) is that it is a little hard to blend out you have to really work it in but when you do it looks great!
Sun Bum chapstick has been my go to for keeping my lips soft and protected from the sun. I hate for my lips to be dry at all so I always have to have chapstick on hand and this one has an spf in it which is great for summer and it smells like coconut, you can never go wrong with coconut scented anything!
Philosophy uplifting miracle worker moisturizer is amazing! As soon as you apply it, it has a cooling effect on your skin and makes dry skin feel so refreshed and hydrated. I rotate between this and First Aid Beauty moisturizer. In the morning my skin still feels very hydrated instead of how it used to feel when I woke up with other moisturizers, it would still feel dry, sometimes like I didn't even put anything on but not with this.
