and now I have it with Giorgio Armani Beauty’s Power Fabric foundation. This foundation gives full coverage, matte, lightweight,  longwear, and spf. It is a best seller, and I can see why. It uses a concentration of oils that have no greasy effects. Powerful pigments allow full coverage and a velvet matte finish. It comes in 31 shades designed to not crackle or dull. So get it all with Armani, and then ask for more…

hydrate, protect, and prime with Lancome’s new UV Expert Sunscreen Aquagel Defense spf 50 Priming Moisturizer. I love this product. It has become my go-to daytime moisturizer. It is an oil free, lightweight, deeply hydrating moisturizer. No need to layer extra sunblock, because this has you covered with spf 50. Your skin is left with a matte base that acts as a perfect primer. I got mine in an influenster box, and I’m so glad I did. This is definitely something I will purchase again. It is made with Vitamin E, Moringa and Edelweiss. The aquagel texture turns into a water like, blendable gel that absorbs quickly. So get with this Lancome do it all, and do a little less this summer….

time to switch up my makeup. When the temperature, and humidity start to rise I always switch from a liquid to powder foundation. I have oily skin to begin with, so a powder is a must when seasons change. I have just discovered Gabriel Cosmetics Dual Powder Foundation. It is designed to minimize shine and absorb oil without clogging pores. It has a lightweight, velvety texture, and a smooth matte finish. The product is plant based, and definitely lets your skin breath. So this summer put on some dual powder before you take off some clothes…

and I’m so into it. I have a new lip obsession. It’s Lime Crime’s Red Velvet from their Matte Velvetines Collection. I spent months searching out the perfect red, and I believe I found it. It’s a liquid lipstick that dries Matte. It lasts longer than any lipstick I’ve ever used. I put it through the test with kissing, drinking, and eating. Next I need to get my hands on their Wet Cherry Gloss. So let your lips scream kiss me in a perfect red, and commit to a crime…

right after I apply my favorite foundation. Lately I’ve been going back and forth between two liquid foundations that I love. The reason they have become my favorites is because they are lightweight, long-lasting, matte, full coverage, and easily blended. The brands are Fenty’s Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation and Huda Beauty’s FauxFilter Foundation. The Fenty comes in 40 shades and is made with climate adaptive technology to resist sweat and humidity. It does not clog pores and is oil free. Huda Beauty’s velvety coverage comes in 30 shades. It dries to a matte powder while leaving you with a luminous finish. It is enriched with Argan Oil and Centella Asiatica to hydrate. So get with one of these luxury foundations, and give the instagram filters a break…

and thanks to Label M haircare I’m keeping it that way. “Label.m is an award-winning, fashion-inspired, global haircare brand and the official haircare product of London Fashion Week.” I have been using their Brunette Texturising Volume Spray and Dry Shampoo. The Volume Spray is a dry mist that adds major texture and height without weight. It has the hold of hairspray while providing root lift. The Dry Shampoo uses rice starch to lift oils from scalp and leave a matte texture for a velvety finish. I have also been enjoying the Diamond Dust collection. It uses diamond dust particles to transform hairs condition and radiance. The shampoo exfoliates and removes build up while the conditioner leaves shiny soft strands. The Leave in Creme hydrates and protects from heat damage. So get with Label M for bigger, better, softer hair, and leave em in the dust…

Note Cosmetics! This brand is easy to love, as it is vegan, cruelty free, environmentally friendly, paraben free, and infused with botanicals. I have been using the Mattifying Extreme Wear Foundation Spf 15. It comes in 24 shades, so you should have no trouble finding your match. It gives a very natural look while remaining matte. It uses Cedar Wood Oil and Spiraea Extract to help balance sebum levels and prevent future break-outs. So stay flawless and protected with Note foundation, people will definitely take note

thanks to Black Opal Beauty. I have been using their True Color Pore Perfecting Liquid Foundation and Soft Velvet Finishing Powder. Both products are extremely lightweight, yet leave a matte flawless look. The foundation controls oil and renews skin’s radiance.  The finishing powder uses Shade ID. Which is color adjusting pigments to expertly blend and match your color. Black Opal is one of the first companies to really embrace the variance in all skin tones. So say bye to an oily face and hello to you, but better..

there’s a new line of lipsticks from sheer tints to pigment rich formulas. Sassy Lips has three collections you should get to know. Make The moment is 6 handcrafted translucent lipsticks infused with gold flakes. They somehow have a real wild chrysanthemum flower in the middle of them! They turn to different shades of glossy pink according to your body temperature. They are hydrating and soft. The Keep Em Guessing collection is four aloe vera based color changing lipsticks that last longer than a lip stain. They are like a mood ring for your lips. They will change shade depending on the ph of your lips. Lastly the Dare to Be You matte lipsticks are hydrating and beautiful with that “in” look. So pucker up for Sassy, and put your lips to work…

your face this summer.  You need your moisturizer to protect you from the sun. I am loving Exuviance’s Sheer Daily Protector SPF 50. It is a mineral based cream that offers uva/uvb protection plus it’s rated PA++++ (the strongest defense against UVA rays). It is extremely lightweight and is quickly absorbed. It has a hint of complexion evening color and dries matte. It has multi antioxidants that neutralize environmental damage, and green tea extract to protect cellular DNA. If you’re looking for less sunscreen and no tint – I recommend Neostrata Daytime Protection Cream SPF 23. It uses PHA/Bionic complex to preserve collagen while defending against UV damage and harmful free radicals. It is lightweight, and fights aging. So get summer ready, for your summer fling…
