June Favorites!!!

(Sings) “These are a few of my favorite things”… lol

Hey Everyone, hope you all are doing well and enjoyed your weekend!

Today I bring you my favorite beauty items that I have been using just about every single day. Two of them I mentioned a while back but they are worth another mention because at the time I was not using them together ๐Ÿ™‚

1. Maybelline: “Fit Me” Matte foundation-They really out did themselves with this, it’s my favorite foundation hands down at the moment. It’s light enough to where you can wear it every day, even on hot days; but packs enough coverage that you can get away with not using concealer. Did somebody say #winning!!?? If you have oily skin I would def recommend this foundation it’s inexpensive and has a finish of a high end foundation.NaturalBuff-FitMe-MattePorelessFoundation-pack2. NYX: HD Studio Photogenic Finishing Powder- It’s been called “miracle in a jar” and for good reason. This stuff is amazing!! Now I put this on after I put on my “Fit Me” foundation to set my face. The trick is, to use a powder brush that a little dense and buff it into your skin, this way your working the powder into the skin and removing any excess foundation. It leaves your face looking photo ready, so smooth without looking dry. Now I don’t believe there is one single product that can stop oily skin from getting oily at some point in the day/night (if you know of it please share the good news). However this finishing powder (at least for me) leaves my face looking dewy once a little oil surfaces as opposed to looking like a sweaty, slick face like I just came to the gym lol (that was dramatic, but you get my point). It retails for $9.99 which is awesome considering how well it works.

3.Urban Decay: Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder for face and body- This right here is heaven sprinkled into a little box to brighten up your life. OMG the shimmer on this is like, Tinkerbell dancing on your cheeks. I wear it every single day and not just on my face, if I have a nice tank top on I wear this on my chest so I can shine bright like a diamond (cue Rhianna) lol . It retails for $29.00 and can be purchased atย ULTA. If you’re into the new “Strobing” makeup technique this would be great for that. Before I apply it, I spray my blush brush to help keep the shimmer under control.20150712_182155 (2)20150712_182201 (2)

4. Colour Pop Cosmetics “Birthday Girl” super shock shadow- This was a limited edition shadow that I received as a gift with my purchase. I really hope they bring it back, I legit use it like 3 times a week. The shimmer in this is amazing. It really makes your eyes pop. I did a review on Colour Pop cosmetics a few months ago (Colour Pop Cosmetics Reviewย ) there shadows are like nothing I ever used. They are so pigmented and they don’t crease and the best part is they are only $5.00 (Hello Somebody)ย 20150603_184527-1 (1)20150712_202059 (1)

5. Burts Bees facial products- So last month I told you about my night creams and facial moisturizers I was using but I switched it up again (sorry). I think I have found 3 things that really work for me. and they are the Burts Bees Natural Acne Solutions Clarifying Toner, Radiance Day Cream and the Herbal Blemishing Stick. I love these products especially the blemishing stick it really handles those annoying over night breakouts and sends them right back to where they came from! The toner doesn’t over dry my skin and it doesn’t burn like most toners with alcohol do, it leaves my face feeling very clean. The day cream is so light an airy which is great if you use liquid foundation because it doesn’t make your face feel cakey with so many products on top of each other. 3 for the win people!20150712_182127 (2)

So those were my June favorites, I hope you enjoyed it, if you try any of them let me know, or if you have a new product worth mentioning leave me a comment I would love to hear about it. Don’t forget to like, comment and share, sharing is caring ๐Ÿ™‚ ย And be sure to check out my other blogย King Designsย Until next time…

Be Blessed Beauties

  1. lovely as always! Hey, I’ve been meaning to ask you, can you recommend some REALLY good, long-lasting nail polishes or topcoats or whatever? Between the backpacking and the painting my nails are COMPLETELY shot and I try to make them presentable but it lasts for like, two days, if I’m lucky. I wash my hands a LOT. Thought I’d check with the expert. Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Lol well thank you so much! I don’t know if I’m an expert but I will do some research for you. Because I get acrylic on my nails it makes the nail polish adhere better. But in the past I’ve always used wet n wild super shine top coat. And recently there have been drug store brands coming up with their own shellac type polish, which is suppose to last for 2 weeks. I’ll pick some up and test it out๐Ÿ˜Š

      1. Uuugh I suck lol just getting back to comments. Shellac type polish? Cool! Thank you so much! I’ll be sure to reblog your findings on my blog because us painters can use all the help we can get with our hands so we don’t terrify the public at large. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. It’s all right take your time and see which posts spark your interest or read them all lol. I would suggest trying the Maybelline fit me matte foundation, my mom has oily skin and it works for her, me as well. As try L’Orรฉal magic nude liquid powder finish that works awesome! Always set your face with a powder that helps too.

      1. I always use concealer, foundation and powder, as I have tried primers that just make my pores stick out like heck. I currently use revlon colorstay products mostly but its not really helping with the shine and oil, I dont want to have to touch up all day if you know what I mean. Yes I am looking through your whole blog. I love it โค

      2. Use a concealer brush to apply your concealer (try the whole Maybelline fit me line). Also if you put your foundation on first. If you wear it under your eyes, Dont apply foundation there, this will reduce a cakey look and oil. When your done set it with finishing powder ๐Ÿ™‚
