July Favorites!!

This month I have been hauling like it's no one business, I have purchased SO many new items I wouldn't even be able to go through all of them! 

So I went through them and picked out a few that I just loved! & didn't really have anything like them before! 

First up is the NYX Butt Naked Eyes Palette

This palette is amazing! It has the perfect shadows to be able to create a very natural day look but also very dark and sexy night looks. 
The packaging is small and easy to store. You can carry it around with you. I actually took it 
with me on vacation and it fit in my make up bag! 

It comes with 15 eyes shadows, 4 blushes, 1 bronzer, and 2 highlighters. 

I truly love this palette the only flaw I did find was the pink blush second from the left
it's pure glitter it makes your face frosty. Really ugly! So use the other three just not that one! 

I have never been a big fan of foundation, I always just stuck to my tinted moisturizers. 
 MAC's Studio Fix (NC40) and MatchMaster SPF 15 Foundation (2.0)
Changed my mind. I really like how they actually match my skin tone and look natural. 

I am the hardest person to match I am light skinned but have dark undertones. 

Studio Fix is a full coverage powder foundation. Which is surprisingly not cakey unless you over do it.  THIS IS NOT A SETTING POWDER. Do NOT put this over foundation you will
look ridiculous. 

MatchMaster is a the type of foundation that matches your skintone. The numbering is not like other makes foundations ex. NW25 or NC35 is either 1.0 or 1.5. It's very natural, build-able coverage.

Clockwise We have MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural (medium plus), Too faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer (Milk Chocolate) Victoria Secret Beauty Rush Blush in Radiant

These are my go to face products this month. 
 When I don't want to wear foundation I just use my MSF over concealer and call it a day! You can also use it to set foundation. It's sooo lightweight. 

I use my chocolate soleil bronzer all the time! It's one of the few matte bronzers out there. I love using this to contour and sometimes allover just to give my self a little bit more color. If it is a little pricey for some of you I would suggest Sephora Bronzer in Los Cabos. 

Radiant is a gorgeous blush. You can tap it on to your cheeks for just a hint of color or you could make it dramatic for night wear.  It's a great formula. Def recommend it.

These babies are my favorite lipsticks EVER!!! 
MAC Myth & Cream Cup
myth is an amazing nude. I like to apply and then blot with tissue and it give just the right about of nude so it doesn't look like concealer. 
Cream Cup is my all time favorite i will keep repurchasing it! It's the perfect mix of pink hues and a nude. I think it's flattering on all skin tones. 

 have always loved cream blushes. I think they are soooo easy to apply great for newbies!!
I saw both of these at rite aid. They're the Revlon Photoready In  Flushed and in Pinched. 
I love the formula and the pigmentation. You can build it to the intensity that you would like!  I think they are awesome for the summer

This is the make up bag I usually carry around . Its a LeSportSac, I love the print to it. It is small so it helps to keep to a minimum what I throw in my bag. 
Clockwise from the top:
Almay One Coat Nourishing Mascara. This mascara as a second coat after L'oreal Telescopic Carbon Black. Is AMAZING it gives me such full lashes. My new go to. 
MAC Superslick Liquid Eyeliner in On the hunt- this liner is great when you want an ultra black liner. It is water resistant but not water proof (found that out at myrtle beach -__-)

Maybelline Great Lash Clear mascara- i love this stuff for my brows! i've also used it when I use fake eyelashes to mesh them together. 

Infallible 24 Hour Eyeshadow in Endless Pearl- love this for highlighting. 

Real Techniques- Foundation brush- the best concealer brush I own it's a bit to small for all over face foundation but for concealer it's the perfect size.

NYX Concealer in a Jar(03 light)- Soo creamy, and very pigmented. Love this all over my face.  when I don't want to wear full foundation. 

A heart mirror I carry around and my rite aid brand eyelash curler! :) 

I hope you guys enjoyed this!
