I love makeup just as much as the next girl. Just not so much in the summer. ūüôą¬†There’s nothing fun about watching your beautiful masterpiece come together and then slide right off the second you walk outside. So tragic! You can always summer-proof your makeup routine by adding a matte primer, setting spray and switching up your foundation.¬†Me? I like to keep it simple most days with minimal makeup for a fresh, radiant look that’s effortless and heat-proof.

That’s what June was all about!

Even, radiant skin with a bold lip (sometimes nude) and flirty falsies with mascara. Beautiful, simple and classic. Oh and summer friendly! Here’s the rundown on all of my June faves that helped me achieve summer beauty bliss:

New Too Faced Melted Matte Lipstick Shades for Summer! 

Too Faced Melted Matte Lipstick Swatches on Dark Skin: Jawbreaker, Wicked, Granny Panties, Suck it, Holy Chic

New season, new lipsticks! Change can be hard to embrace. However, switching up your lipstick is one of the easiest things you can do to spice up your routine and change your look a bit. Plus, trying on new lipstick is¬†so¬†much fun! I’ve been a lipstick lover for years and I still get a little carried away when I come across new lipsticks. Like the new shades Too Faced added to their Melted Matte Lipstick lineup.

Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighter Swatches 

Too Faced Love Light Prismatic Highlighters Swatches on Dark Skin

Too Faced is all about the cute packaging so it comes as no surprise that their intro to the highlighter game is all glitz and glamour. They may be a little late to the party but Too Faced managed to dazzle us all with their new Love Light Prismatic Highlighters. The Love Light Prismatic Highlighters are everything you’d imagine a Too Faced highlighter to be. Shiny, a little gaudy, maybe a little cheap but still hella cute!

Too Faced Natural Love Eyeshadow Palette Swatches 

Too Faced Natural Love Eyeshadow Palette Swatches on Dark Skin

Happy hump day beauty lovers! It’s been about 2 weeks since I’ve last checked in with you guys and that’s way too long! I have quite the long (and interesting!) story about the massive changes in my life these days that I’ll be sharing with you very soon. In the meantime, I’ve got a lot of catching up to do with swatches and reviews! Starting with lots and lots of lipstick and eyeshadow. ūüôą

Last month, Too Faced released the Natural Love Collection for Summer 2017 and it was just as girly, frilly and cheesy as I thought it’d be. And I’m loving it all! Sorry guys! I’m a¬†huge¬†girly girl so I can’t help but be mildly obsessed with Too Faced as they’re the reigning beauty queens of all things girly. Including the new limited edition blockbuster Natural Love Eyeshadow Palette that’s been turning heads lately.

Happy April! I know I’m a couple days late but the start of a fresh, new month is always a cause to celebrate. Especially when it’s pushing us that much closer to summer. Yaaaaas! Besides sunny skies and fun vibes, I’m pretty pumped about April because there’s a ton of new products and collections rolling out right now and it’s got me bouncing off the walls. You know I’m all about enjoying new makeup!

I actually spent a great deal of March exploring new makeup too. After the dust from the holiday madness finally settled, brands started pumping out stuff left and right and I felt like Ash on a never-ending quest to catch them all. Obviously, I failed, because keeping up with every release is just obsessive. However, I did manage to try a handful of new products that turned out to be so amazing that I’m still reaching for them constantly. Here’s a peek at all the products I loved last month:

Peach Me, I’m Dreaming!¬†

Too Faced Sweet Peach Collection Swatches on Dark Skin

Just when you thought Too Faced couldn’t get any cuter, Jerrod turns around and whips up an entire Sweet Peach Collection filled with eyeshadow, lip gloss and more that all smell like freshly picked peaches. I’m dying! I’m a sucker for cute packaging and yummy smelling makeup so you know I was all over the Sweet Peach Collection. My obsession first started last year when Too Faced dropped the Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette and set the makeup world (and my soul) on fire. Now, I’ve got an entire collection of Sweet Peach goodies to pair with it and I’m oh so giddy. Yay for peaches!

Bite Beauty Cava Matte Lip Creme Crayon, Too Faced Queen B Melted Matte Lipstick, ColourPop Pillow Talk Matte X Lippie Stix, Tarte Rogue The Lip Sculptor Lipstick and Lip Gloss, MAC Strip Me Down Lipstick, Smashbox Out Loud Always On Liquid Lipstick Swatches on Dark Skin

I hope you’ve been enjoying your New Year! Here’s to hoping that 2017 is gentler yet still fierce. Because I think we can all agree that 2016 was a little rough around the edges. It wasn’t all bad though! We saw a lot of great releases, collaborations and more in the beauty community last year that blessed us with a lot of great products. I know I’m a little late to the party but there was no way I could truly kiss 2016 goodbye until I shared all of my favorite products with you. It’s only right!

Gingerbread Cookie Inspired Look for Holiday

Too Faced Gingerbread Cookie Palette, MAC Nutcracker Sweet Copper Face Compact, Benefit They're Real Push Up Liner, Bite Beauty Cava Creme Matte Lip Crayon

Natural looks are my jam on an everyday basis. But special occasions and holidays are for going all out. You get dressed to the nines and put on your best shoes. You beat your face to capacity. You just go crazy with it for the holidays. And that’s okay. ‘Cause I do too. Lately I’ve been finding myself feeling a little smoky when it comes time to get ready to hit the scene. I recently created a look with one of my holiday buys, the Too Faced Gingerbread Cookie Palette from the Grand Hotel Cafe Set.

How Cute is the Too Faced Grand Hotel Cafe? 

Too Faced Grand Hotel Cafe for Holiday 2016

Makeup is sorta like books. It can really take you places! Like the new limited edition Too Faced Grand Hotel Cafe palette set for holiday. From the moment you open the hotel shaped box, you’re whisked away to the Grand Hotel Cafe to spend your Christmas in Paris. Like a boss. A delicious smelling boss. With just a quick whiff of the yummy smelling palettes I could close my eyes and imagine sitting in cute quaint cafe nibbling on gingerbread cookies as I sip on a Peppermint Mocha Frappuccino in bliss. Just take me away Too Faced!

Ulta Holiday Haul

Butter London Fancy-full Lippy Liquid Lipstick Collection, Stila Stay All Day Sparkle All Night Lipstick Set, Smashbox L.A. Lights Palette, LORAC Mega Pro 3 Palette, Tarte The Kissing Squad Lip Sculptor Quad, Too Faced Grand Care Hotel

There’s a ton of reasons to make all of your beauty purchases at Ulta but the best one is the rewards program. Hands down! Racking up points at Ulta doesn’t just get you deluxe samples or impossibly hard to get mega sets. Shade but no shade. Sorry Sephora. I’ma let you finish but Ulta has the best rewards program around! Instead of getting deluxe samples of goodies you’d essentially receive for free elsewhere Ulta rewards you with dollars off your next purchase. The more points you have the better!

I’ve been spending up a storm over the last few months at Ulta but it’s all paid off because I was able to score almost all of the new limited edition holiday sets and palettes on my list without breaking the bank. I let my points stack up to 2,300 and redeemed them for $133 off. Talk about win! I couldn’t wait to grab a grey bag and fill it up with my top holiday picks so far this year.
