I love summer for many reasons, but one of the main ones is how effortless I can be with my makeup looks. Summer is when all the eyeshadow palettes get put away, and all I focus on, as you may have guessed from the post title, are hair lips and nails. One of the main reasons why I give up on the eyeshadow for the summer is because of sunglasses. As much as I love and enjoy putting on and wearing eye makeup, I cut back on it big time. Foundation, Mascara (Maybelline Volum’Express Pumped Up Colossal Mascara is the new summer favorite), Eyebrow pencil, Powder and Blush is what my summer beauty routine consists of.
I absolutely adore nail polish, and have quiet an extensive collection. But I never seem to have time for it. So for the past two weeks I’ve been making an effort and putting on a different color every few days. I didn’t wear nail polish on my nails for about a day, and couldn’t stand looking at my nails, they looked so sad. And of course with Essie and it’s amazing colors, like Sunday Funday, every day is a celebration.
Putting on lipstick has always been like putting on confidence. Lipstick helps you stand out. Lipstick is a great conversation starter. Lipstick helps make friends. Lipstick speaks for itself. But this time I went with Revlon ColorStay Moisture Stain in New York Scene. I wanted my lips to stay moisturized and my color to be long lasting without the stickiness of the gloss. This beautiful deep red lip color makes me feel beautiful, I couldn’t ask for more.
I love shopping for beauty products at Walgreens, they always have the latest trends, plus brands that I can’t find anywhere else, like this Mark Hill Fabulous Finish Hairspray. It was love at first sight. The packaging, the scent, the finish, the way my hair looks and feels. I have found my new must have. The whole Mark Hill line actually seemed very appealing to me and I would love to feature them on my blog in the future. And the fact that Mark Hill is an actual person and one of Britain’s Favorite Celebrity Hairdressers, makes me obsessed with him even more. I was also pleasantly surprised by the prices on this salon line. And because I shopped Walgreens, I earned points towards my next rewards. Gotta love my Balance Rewards Card!
