I’m all about a bronzed glow right now. I love simple makeup looks that are glowy and effortless for the summer time. I want to wear the least amount of makeup possible during these very hot and humid months here in Miami. I live for just popping bronzer on my face, some highlighter and a pretty bright lip. No matter what skin tone you have, a sun-kissed glow is flattering on everyone!

Laura Geller‘s Baked beauty products all start as a liquid, that then are poured into terra cotta pans and are baked until they turn into a soft, wonderfully pigmented & creamy powder. By using this baked method, the terra cotta tiles help sustain hydration in the product as well as in your skin. You know how sometimes after you’ve dusted a powder across your face and then your skin feels…dry?  Well, not with these products. You get the color pay-off, hydration and glow!

Stila Aqua Glow BronzerStila Cosmetics

Fun Fact:  Stila was one of the first high-end brands I started using back when I was in high-school.

I have been loving the NEW Summer Collection. The matte bronzer really does stay all day, it applies effortlessly, and never turns muddy or orange. I apply it where the sun would normally hit my face – forehead, tops of my cheeks and a little across my nose.

I have used the Aqua Glow bronzer only 3 times, I just got it last week. But I really like the dewy sun-kissed look it gives. I’ve tried wearing it alone, but I like mixing it with a little foundation. It does not feel or look oily on my skin. I prefer though, to set my T-zone anyway with powder after I apply this.

The Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick is a beautiful color { shade:  AMALFI — a coral-pink }. This pop of color is great with tanned skin. I’m still on the fence with this product though. It does last, but what bothers me is the smell and the texture of it. It smells kind of ‘chemically’ and it dries out my lips. BUT I do love the color. I think maybe I’ll try putting a gloss or something over top to see how that goes.

These products are perfect for creating that summer sun-kissed glow!

What’s in my cosmetic case?

January 08, 2015

I’m constantly changing my cosmetic case and what’s in it. Currently, this is what I have inside…

Cosmetic Case

Petals and Pumps

Cosmetic case:  “In Case of Emergency, Put Mascara on Yourself Before Helping Others.” I received this case from a dear friend of mine, and it’s special to me! It fits a lot (as you can see) and it’s just so cute!

Business Cards:  Yes, there are business cards in my cosmetic case! I have business cards stashed in every handbag, clutch, diaper bag and cosmetic case I have…You never know when an opportunity arises. Gotta be prepared.

Lip balm:  Eos lip balm is a MUST! I can’t help myself. And neither can my son Liam, who’s 2. When he finds the colorful egg-shaped balm, he can’t keep his little hands off of it. The lip balm is moisturizing, natural, fruity + smells good.

{ that little hand in my shot, going for the Eos lip balm! :) }

Travel size cream:  There’s always some kind of travel cream in my bag. I wash my hands a billion times a day, and this ‘Ultra Repair Cream’ is perfect for nourishing my hands throughout the day.

Mally Beauty Evercolor Eye Liner:  I had given up on eyeliner until this one came into my life! The colors are beautiful. They are so creamy + easy to apply. They are truly bulletproof. And I’m starting to hoard these! » shown in “Lucky Penny.”

Amazonian Clay Blush:  Tarte is one of my favorite brands. And in my opinion, they have the best blush. This brand is built upon offering non-toxic, eco-friendly beauty products, that deliver! » shown in “Blissful.”

Chubby Shadow Stick:  Because you never know when you need a little touch-up! This one is neutral + has a little sparkle. So I can pop it on my lids anytime. » shown is “Bountiful Beige.”

Butter Gloss:  This lip gloss has been all over my instagram. It’s one of my new favorites, and is part of my December Beauty Round Up Series » see post here. » shown in “I Believe.”

Highlighter:  Obsessed with a couple of highlighters…this is one of them! This is what I love about it:  It’s soft glow, creamy texture + beautiful “dewy” appearance to the skin.

Marc Jacobs Spray Pen:  The perfect fragrance + size to pop into your bag. Because who doesn’t need an extra spray throughout the day?! ‘Daisy Eau So Fresh,’ is flirty, fruity, fresh + a little musky all at the same time. One of my faves!

Sample Size Mascara:  Admittedly, this is not my favorite mascara. But I keep little ones like this handy for touch-ups, or in case I left my house without mascara on. I hate when that happens.

Naked Lip gloss:  This is my first and only lip gloss by urban decay. But it won’t be my last! I really like the color + the way it looks and feels on my lips. It’s conditioning, long-wear formula is great. » shown in “Sesso.” a shimmery-rose shade. Part of the “On The Run” palette.
