Summer Beauty Favorites!

I can count on one hand the number of days each year that I don’t wear makeup. It’s just part of my daily routine! Here’s a quick roundup of my current beauty favorites – the things I’m using most often during the summer. I listed them in order from most expensive to least expensive.

Origins Mask Set: $29

I never pay full price for this set! I wait until it’s half price around the holidays and stock up. They offer different versions of the set, but the Charcoal Mask is the one item I’m looking for. I find that two travel size bottles last me a year, since I only use it about once a week.

Tarte Hamptons Weekender Contour Palette: $19

I’ve used this palette for at least 18 months and still have lots of product left. It’s a perfect blush/bronzer/highlighter combo that is soft but still very pigmented. Most of the time, I find the best deals on Tarte products by shopping directly on their website during holiday sales.

NYX Finishing Powder in Translucent: $10

My sister got me hooked on this finishing powder. It’s literally like a filter for your face – but never looks cakey or feels heavy. I use it to set both my undereye concealer and my foundation.

Avon True Color Lipstick in Toasted Rose: $6-$10

This is my go-to lipstick, the one I can wear any time, with any outfit or makeup look. It goes on easily, stays on all day and isn’t drying on my lips. You don’t have to use a representative in order to shop online with Avon.

ELF Matte Magic Mist and Set: $5

This stuff holds my makeup in place all day long, even in the heat and humidity of summer!

Wet & Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow Quad in Walking on Eggshells: $4

I know a lot of you love this quad – you cannot beat the price and the color payoff. If you order from Ulta, make sure you use Rakuten to get cash back and look for those $3 off your purchase coupons!

I keep a few of my lipsticks in this dish that belonged to my Gramma, next to a picture of her from 1980. She and I share a love for lots of hairspray and lots of lipstick! ❤

  1. What a sweet photo of your grandma! I just love that. 🙂 You’ve got me interested in the ELF mist, so I may need to check it out.


    1. I used that ELF mist a couple weeks ago when I got ready at 7, worked all day and then went to TopGolf for Paul’s birthday. We were out in the heat and humidity for over 2 hours and my makeup didn’t budge! It’s the best $5 summer product, for sure! 🙂


  2. That picture of your Gramma is precious!! What a sweet keepsake. I also do my make up every day. It’s just part of my morning routine that helps me tackle anything that comes my way that day.


  3. Thanks for this good list! Nana and I totally agree with a little make up daily. I love my husband too much to make him endure my “plain face!” 😉 Love your picture of Gramma! 💄
