Hello beauties! The final moments of July are ticking away (Where did this month go?!) and I’ve been dying to share my July Beauty Favorites with you guys. In cased you missed it, I just launched my own YouTube channel– doing makeup tutorials, documenting my travels, and such. I’ve toyed with the idea of creating my own channel for 5+ years now, and this season of my life just seemed so fitting to just go ahead and do the thing. So if you want to see more of the products I am loving right now, my YouTube channel can give you a better idea of my full beauty repertoire.
Let’s get started with my top beauty favorites for the month of July!
1.Benefit, They’re Real! Tinted Lash Primer
Summer is usually when we are at our best- we have a beautiful color from the summer sun, our bodies are energized from the abundance of vitamin C, and summer just has a lovely way of giving us a natural glow. This lash primer is perfect for summer because it does two amazing things:
a. If you are a minimalist on makeup in the hotter months, this primer is for you. It gives you longer, fuller, and more defined looking lashes, while still looking natural. The formula isn’t as stiff as mascara, so your lashes still look soft and untouched.
b. This product will help you get the most impact out of your mascara. I prime my eyelashes with it before I apply mascara and it just creates the perfect base to build on. Using this primer is the closest my natural lashes have ever been to falsie level!
2. OXY Daily Defense Cleansing Pads
I love to be outside in the summer, but between sweating and sunscreen, I am extra careful to start and end my day with a naked face. And to be honest, it’s really not enough to just clean your face with soap and water. Once sebum is deposited in your pores and stays there all day, you really need something a little stronger and more abrasive to really clear the day from your skin.
These OXY cleansing pads are a little textured, so they are perfect to reach into your pores and yank those impurities right out. I use two per day, one in the morning and one at night, in little circles all over my face. I have noticed a HUGE decrease in breakouts since I started using these little gems.
3. Glamoflauge Full Coverage Foundation by Hard Candy
I discovered this foundation in the month of July and I am obsessed. I would say it compares to the Kat Von D foundation in terms of coverage. If you have redness, blemishes, or need to cover up tattoos, this foundation would be the perfect fit for you. Did I mention it was only $7?!
You can get all my tips on applying it in my How to Look Like a Disney Princess Video on my YouTube channel!
4. NYX White Eyeliner
White eyeliner has quickly become a staple of my daily makeup routine. I apply it generously to my waterline and instantly, my eyes look brighter and I look less tired. This particular eyeliner is a twist-up, so no sharpener required. It’s also super smooth and long-lasting. If your goal is to make your eyes look bigger, white eye liner will immediately give you a more open, larger looking eye!
Thanks for tuning in once again for this month’s beauty favorites! Until next time, Sweet Dreams and Happy Travels, lovelies!
