{ i heart makeup::my summer must haves}

It's no secret that I heart makeup. I believe my love for makeup began when I was little girl watching my mom brush on the bright blues and greens across her was the 80's after all. I remember she had this big Tupperware box filled with a myriad of eye shadow palettes ranging from bright blues to hot pinks. So, it's probably no surprise that I have a pretty decent size makeup collection myself.
Here are a few of my current makeup obsessions:

SEPHORA COLLECTION - Colorful Eyeshadow
Girl Talk by Sephora

I love, love, love this shadow. I wear it almost everyday, no lie. It adds just the perfect color and the right amount of glitter without being too overpowering. I seriously get complimented on it every time I wear it.
Benefit Cosmetics - Fake Up Concealer
Fake Up Concealer by Benefit
I am always in search of a concealer that can actually "conceal" my under eye circles. And I had yet to find one that actually did so until I found this one. The thing I like best about this concealer is the vitamin e moisturizer that surrounds the actual concealer. This moisturizer keeps the concealer from causing creases and helps it last all day.
Benefit Cosmetics - High Beam

  This highlighter when paired with the Fake Up concealer seriously lights up my eyes. I add a little dab of this under each eye for the those extra tired days and it gives that fresh bright eyed look I so desperately need.
Infinite Rose Cream Lip Stain by Sephora
This is my go to lip stain. I wear for play dates, meetings with clients, church; I wear it everywhere. It is the perfect shade of subtle, simplicity for an everyday natural look.
Rosebud Perfume Co. - Rosebud Salve
Rosebud Salve by Rosebud Perfume Co.
This is my go to lip balm all year round. I always have one in my purse and one in my night stand. This stuff is seriously amazing. It softens the most severely chapped lips like nothing else. You gotta try it.

So, those are my summer must haves...what are yours?


  1. Isn't benefit the best? I need to try that concealer!!


  2. I probably only wear make up 2-3 times a week but I'm a complete makeup junky.

    But my current favorites are diorskin concealer (I have the WORST genetic dark circles and this makes me look human again) and NARS lip pencils (for dress up) and FusionBeauty Lip Fusion inFATuation Lip Fattener gloss for every day (love the colors and the tingle).

    Have you heard of birchbox? They send samples once a month of beauty products - I've found some things I just LOVE through them.


thank you for your comment...i read every one and they make me smile.
