Need a little inspiration for summer? I DO! I don't know about you, but the lack of warm weather is not motivating me to reach for bronzer just yet. However, these ten little beauties are making my May.
Face prep is key and Glow Tonic To Go from Pixi is a great start. Glycolic Acid, Aloe Vera and Gingseng help turn over dead skin cells to reveal brighter, younger looking skin. Too lazy to use cotton balls? (*raises hand) Glow Tonic To Go comes in handy exfoliating toning pads that make skincare easy, even after late nights. // $18.00
Models Own, a line from London and available at Ulta, is pure joy for me right now. I can't get enough of their inky I-Definer Kohl Pencil in Onyx. It's so dark, smudgeable and long wearing, I wish it was available in more than two colors. The other shade? It's Chocolate Copper and I need it in my life. They are currently BOGO 40% off at Ulta, so add both shades to your cart and save. // $8.00
While we are talking Models Own, this highlighter is actually my new favorite eye shadow! I'm all about a simple, fast lid these days and it doesn't get much better than this Sculpt and Glow Highlighter. Available in golden sand and peach pearl, there is a shade that's perfect for everyone. This isn't a creamy powder, in fact, it's quite the opposite. Despite it's baked and slightly dry appearance, it looks beautiful on the skin, especially on the eyelids. // $12.00
I mentioned yearning for a few shades in this palette last week and completely caved. Do you need it? Probably not. But if you love the idea of grays, gold and navy the way I do, you can't skip this new UD Jean-Michel Basquiat Gold Griot Eyeshadow Palette from Urban Decay. // $39.00
Keune's Blend Gloss Spray is my new BFF. The ultra-light weight shine spray adds lots of natural looking shine without any of the weight you'd expect. It's not greasy in the least and doesn't seem to build up on the hair. I wash every three or four days and use it liberally every single day. // Find it in a salon near you, $20.00
My chapped lips are insane lately; am I the only one? I can't get enough of Bite's Agave Lip Mask in Champagne and it's the perfect tint for whatever season we are experiencing right now. // $26.00
I can't say it enough. If you're a Reyes filter fan because it brightens your face to flawless, you need to try Vitabrid C12 Face Brightener. It's a powder that you add to your existing skincare that transforms your skin in less than two weeks. (That's how long it took my skin!) // $55.85
Speaking of skincare, recently I've been pushing the efficacy of my night time lotions to the max. The JeNu Plus Ultrasonic Infuser actually pushes your skincare six times more deeply into the skin than when products are applied with your fingers alone. Think ultrasonic skin care is an alternative fact? The photo above shows how plumped my skin was after massaging a hyaluronic acid serum into my fine lines with the JeNu Plus. How cool is that? I can only imagine how much more effective my products will be if they are able to really penetrate. // $199.00
CoverGirl's Total Tease Mascara is the cutest brush ever. It's got a special brush bubble on the end to really fan out the edges of your lashes. The rest of the brush? It lengthens like crazy. (And it comes in 5 colors!) // $9.24
