Summer Faves. Part One.

Hellllllllo everyone! Hope your 4th of July weekend was A BLAST! Pun 100% intended. I spent the long weekend at my parent's lake house on the KY Lake, with lots of family and food!

I wanted to share a few of my favorite things for summa time with you guys! This time of year really is my favorite... and yes, I even love humidity. My skin looks better - I love that nice and sweaty dewy look! My hair doesn't love it, but then ... I never listen to how my hair feels anyway. I just slick it all into a huge bun on top of my head and just ignore it. Per usu.

1. Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer - This stuff is the BEST tinted moisturizer I've ever used! I love the illuminating one, as it imparts the perfect hydrated glow. When my skin is on point, the coverage is plenty! If I have any bumps or discoloration, I put on concealer before it. If you want even more of a glow - and you know I always do - I put on Laura Mercier's Foundation Primer in Radiance under the tinted moisturizer. They are so beautiful when mixed!

2. Colourpop Eye Shadow in La La - This is my favorite eye shadow to wear during the summer months, and it's only $5!! The description says its glittery, but it's not at all. (Trust me... I stopped wearing glitter last year. Kidding. It was severalllllll years ago!) It is the most beautiful, velvety shade of rosegold/bronze! It goes on so smooth and creamy! I just put it all over my lids with my fingertip and blend! All over the lid and slightly smudged under the eye is so dreamy, but for an extra summery pop, add a bit of bright blue or turquoise under the eye. (I love to use Nars Soft Touch Pencil in Palladium, but there are some good turquoise liners at the drugstore, too! Especially a pretty teal one from L'Oreal)

3. Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs  (I use the color Deep Glow) - Let me just tell you... the bottle says "Leg Makeup." That sounds weird. Like a 1980 pageant girl or something... But don't let that scare you. The bottle also says "Spray on perfect legs in an instant," and that's exactly what it does! There is a spray-on version and a lotion version. I like the both but prefer the spray. I put a little lotion on my legs first, to get them smooth and moisturized, then GO TO TOWN spraying this stuff on my legs! Make sure to rub it in really well. When you think you've done a good enough job, stop and rub some more to make sure it's all blended onto your legs. Then go to a full length mirror and look at the Victoria's Secret model standing before you. Your legs will have the most gorgeous glow, and all of your scars, veins, and imperfections are gone. It's unreal. To boost the glow, I love taking a shimmery lotion or highlighter for the face and dusting some down the middle of my legs, from the knee to where your ankle starts. You will thank me once you do this. I promise.

Sorry for all of the Photobucket images on the blog today! Photobucket is going crazy! Has anyone else had this issue? If so, any ideas on how to fix??
I would LOVE to know your favorite summer products... ANY AND ALL! Leave them in the comments below! I will do a Part Two next week. Excited about this coming weekend... my brother is getting married!!
