Beauty Favorites- May

Hello lovies!

Today I want to tell you all about my newest faves in the beauty and skincare world!

As the weather gets hotter, my products tend to change to lighter based formulas. In this miami heat, I like to keep it simple so that my face isn’t dripping off onto my shirt by the end of the day…


1.Kate Somerville Daily Deflecter Waterlight:

I’ve talked about the Kate Somerville Daily Deflector before, but this version is something special! This sunscreen is perfect for the face because, unlike most sunscreens, it comes out as a water based product instead of goopy and oily! This is amazinggggg if you’re like me and tend to break out easily from sunscreens! Free of parabens and sulfates, and the best part… its anti-aging formula!

2.Clinique Take the Day Off:

This balm, by beauty giant Clinique, is made to remove your make-up! If you have read my previous posts, you know that I am a big advocate of removing your makeup before using your cleanser instead of just expecting the cleanser to do both. Take a bit of this balm, rub it between your hands and then massage onto your face. Use a circular motion just like you would if you were washing off your makeup, then just rinse! The consistency of this product is perfect to get off that stubborn waterproof mascara!


1.Too-Faced Better Than Sex Mascara:

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve heard of this mascara. It is by far my favorite one, and I’ve tried many others. All I need is one swipe and my lashes are as long as falsies! (Now, I must give partial credit to the next product for that one). And if I want a little bit more ‘umph’ for a nighttime look, I layer a couple more swipes for a full, thick effect! Overall, this has been the best mascara I have stumbled upon. I prefer the regular formula, but there is a waterproof version as well!

2.Rodan + Fields Lash Boost:

Ok you guys… it took me awhile to take the leap on this one. There are so many lash boosting products out there, I had NO idea where to start. But, boy am I glad I chose this one! I have been using this product for a little over a month, and I am so impressed with the results! I have been going without makeup more often because I am so happy with my lashes! Also, there is quite a bit of product, so it’s not one of those things you will have to replace too frequently. You can click here to purchase this product!

3. Sugar Lip Treatment Perfecting Wand:

If you follow me on the gram, you know that I literally can’t get enough of this product. I just purchased a second one to keep in my car so I never find myself without it. This stuff is amazing. There are microbeads at the tip of the pin, and you just twist the bottom to release the product. Then, you just swipe it across your lips like you would lipstick. It feels amazing, and it looks amazing! It wakes up your lips and brings their natural color to the surface, all while leaving a nice glossy look. My lips have been so much more hydrated since I started using this product. I’ll never go back!

4.Sugar Lip Treatment in Bloom:

Another Fresh Cosmetics favorite, I use this over the perfecting wand when I want a little tint! It has SPF 15, and y’all know how much I love SPF! But, the best part is the smell, like fresh lemonade! In case you’re not familiar with this beauty company, Fresh cosmetics… their products actually contain sugar which is a natural humectant!

5.Bobbi Brown Perfectly Defined Long-Wear Brow Pencil:

This brow pencil is my current favorite. I have bought A LOT of brow pencils, because it’s one thing I wear every single day. This one has an angled tip which makes it easier to define your brows. And it really is a long-wear pencil, it stays put all day without that dreaded smudging.

6.Too-Faced Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer:

Concealer is one of those things that is so hard to shop for. There are so many options, and somehow I never seem to find one that matches my skin. But, fear not… this Too-Faced concealer is perfect! I actually found a shade that matches my skin AND it is super effective without looking too caked on!


1.Briogeo Rosarco Milk:

This is a reparative leave-in conditioner that you spray on the ends of damp hair. With ingredients like rosehip, argan, coconut oil, and Vitamin E, it’s the perfect treatment for dry, damaged ends.

2.R+Co Sail Soft Wave Spray:

This is the time of year when I rock, or at least try to rock, the tousled, wavy look. This spray by R+Co is perfect for the natural, ocean kissed hair. Spray onto dry or towel-dried hair and proceed to tousle you gorgeous mermaids!
