Natural is Best.

KABUKI BRUSH - TOO FACED  /  HYDRATING OIL STICK - MILK MAKEUP  /  PREP + PRIME LIP - MAC  / LIP LINER (SPICE) -  MAC  /  AMAZONIAN CLAY BB TINTED MOISTURIZER (LIGHT-MEDIUM) - TARTE  /  LIGHT REFLECTING LOOSE POWDER - NARS   /  LARGER THAN LIFE LONG-WEAR EYELINER (VIA DE'MARTELLI) - NARS   /  NAKED SKIN COLOR CORRECTING FLUID (GREEN) - URBAN DECAY   JUICY SHAKER (PIECE OF CAKE) - LANCĂ”ME  /  BABYDOLL MASCARA - YSL  /  LUNA PLAY- FOREO

I've only been home for a few weeks and I probably already went shopping at least 10 times. So of course I had to stop at Sephora. Your face is your best accessory - I mean, it does go everywhere with you. In the Summer, I prefer wearing less makeup, focusing more on skincare and highlighting what my momma gave me. This is a review of what I purchased on my most recent trips and how I keep my face natural and glowing. (There are bonus pictures of my vanity as well ;))

I consistently used all of these products for the past two weeks and I don't regret buying anything. BB Cream/ Tinted Moisturizer is so great for the summer and it is okay for some blemishes to show through. Overall, my makeup is definitely not as cakey and less dry. If the redness gets bad (or you are a little sunburnt), the green Naked Correcting Fluid helps even out your skin tone.

If you can only buy one or two products, I would recommend the combination of the Mac Prep + Prime and Lip Liner in Spice. You can see an example of the lip color in my last blogpost. Prepping your lips makes the liner work like a long- lasting liquid lipstick, which is all the rage these days. You can buy other colors to work with the primer too! In the long run, it's cheaper than buying many different lipsticks ($16 per liner versus $20-$36 per lipstick). The Too Faced Kabuki Brush is a close second favorite. It is made 100% with real teddy bear hair, which is so cute.

As promised, here are some pictures of my vanity (from PB Teen). I love displaying everything like a candy shop/ magazine spread.



It seems I can never outgrow my obsession with Sanrio characters haha. I get most of my cute plushies and notebooks from Hong Kong or this adorable store - Shop Kawaii. Fill your life with things that make you happy. Even if people laugh at you, think about it as a great conversation starter :P

Until next time,
