summer essentials

happy happy almost three day weekend, who's excited?! I am eager and ready (finally going to see the hunger games movie), also ready to check out duets tonight. I love Robin Thicke and the concept seems cool. I don't really watch talent shows but this one has my interest, maybe because vampire diaries is done??? So in my quest to be a better blogger, I was thinking of summer last night and voila this post! I love preparing for summer, enjoying longer days and sunnies everyday all day!

I picked up these loves yesterday at h&m, I have a collection of sunglasses and most well all of them are oversized. I like them best for my face shape and mostly are black but these are tortoise so didn't think twice about the purchase.

snapped a pictured of my fotd (face of the day) products, my routine usually stays the same but in the summer I loose the foundation and only use mascara, eyeliner, sometimes eyeshadow (either nudes or smokey eye),concealer, bronzer (used for blush, really gives a healthy glow), highlighter and lipstick (either nude or red). *urban decay de-slick gel is a daily necessity for the summer for combination skin too.

a quick share of what I think is essential + perfect for summer.  love incorporating color with accessories and with my nails. less is more with with everything else especially when it comes to beauty and keeping cool. some of my favorites are neon, coral blush, chucks (can't believe it took me so long to own a pair), fedora, non-sticky lipgloss (love this covergirl wetslicks in guava splash 505) gives the appearance of your lips but better effect. I love using a blending tool for makeup (perfect for tinted moisturizers or liquid makeup)for ultra sheer application in the summer.

  3. I need that fedora here in Florida. The one I have sits weird on my head.

  4. I've never looked good in big sunglasses because I have a longer face, but I have a buttload of aviators. and I LOVE NARS and Urban Decay.

    I'm big on Nars lip laquier (sp?) and the Urban Decay Naked palate. Foundation I usually use Clinique since it goes on nice and I can actually afford it- lol.

    & who doesn't love a fedora ;)
