First Blog Post: Pre-Summer Shopping

Most of my (pre) summer shopping accessories came in so I decided to share them with you!  There is a link for each so if you want to check any out you can just click!

First are these Quay Sunglasses that I ordered off of ASOS.  I heard about this brand from a friend and decided to try out a pair for myself.  They were $72 and I am SOOOO happy I bought them!  They are oversized though, so if you don’t like big sunglasses definitely stay away haha!  I included the photo of them on me so you could see the size.  I love, love, love them and cannot wait to get another pair!

Okay next up is my new make-up!!! I ordered a ton of stuff from Sephora so I’ll give a little personal rating along with each item.

I am obsessed with highlighters and have been looking all over for a highlighter similar to Bubbly in That Glow by Anastasia Beverly Hills, so if you know one let me know!  I ordered two very different highlighters: Laura Mercier Matte Radiance Powder and Yves Saint Laurent Finishing Powder

So the Laura Mercier Highlight is the round one in the picture and has a bit of a sparkle to it.  It’s so easy to apply and is perfect if you don’t want an intense highlight.

The Yves Saint Laurent packaging gives me life!!! I love the gold and that it comes with a a little applier and a case.  This gives your face an overall soft-shimmer and is amazing (but pricey)!

I bought three mascaras because I really like to emphasize my eyes when I do make-up.  I bought these mascaras: BuxomBenefit Lash CurlingNeutrogena Healthy Volume (only one not from Sephora)

Buxom: BEST MASCARA EVER!!! I have a lot of mascaras but none of them make my eyes pop like this one!

Neutrogena: Very simple, but makes each lash emphasized and doesn’t clump.

Benefit: Love this for my lower lashes because it has such a fine brush!

Next up are the brushes I bought: Tarte Bronze and Glow and two B4Y brushes that I bought at CVS.

The tarte brush is amazing for highlighting and bronzer!  The small end applies so nice because it places the bronzer exactly where you want it and blends easily.  My B4Y brushes I use for blush and glow.  The glow brush is THE BEST!!! I can only use that brush for glow now because it makes my highlight look so good!

I bought Clinique Foundation and Concealer which is my new go to!  I use the wand to put it directly on my face and then use the beauty blender to blend.  It’s so light and doesn’t even feel like I’m wearing anything!

Lastly, I bought It Cosmetics Confidence In a Cream which works like magic!  I have such dry skin and this really nourishes my skin.  I only use a little each time because it spreads, so even though it’s expensive I think it will last me awhile.

I bought so much that I moved up to VIB level at Sephora! I am so excited to use these and already booked my makeover for next week.fullsizeoutput_4053

Overall the only thing I would criticize is that both highlighters aren’t very buildable since they are so light, but I still really like them for a lighter look.

Thanks so much for reading and hope everyone has a lovely day!

XOXO Kate
