Early Summer Essentials!- Part 1

It's May!! Which means.. IT'S SUMMERTIME! Well, at least in my book! I've been done with classes and finals for a few days now, and it feels absolutely wonderful! I finally have time to get back into blogging and such, and I'm ecstatic! Anyways.. enough with the blabbing. Here are some things I am currently loving as it starts to warm up here in Tennessee.

 This first item is bareMinerals' All-Over Face Color in Pure Radiance. I picked this up at their outlet store in Destin, Florida two months ago, and I'm so in love with it! It is so effortless and easy that I haven't used a single blush since I got it. I thought it might be too much sparkle when I first got it, but it actually blends out to a perfect glow. I sweep it over my cheeks, temples, hairline, down my nose and a tiny bit on my chin. So it kind of doubles for blush and bronzer. It blends flawlessly and gives your whole face an instant healthy lift!
 I'm a nail polish junkie, addict, hoarder... you get the point. Normally I use different nail polishes every time I give myself a manicure, but lately I have found myself gravitating towards these two beauties more than others. The first one is Illamasqua's Nail Varnish in Lament. It's a magnificent summery coral with the ever so slightest golden shimmer. To be honest, I didn't even know the color had shimmer until I took the bottle outside and then confirmed what I saw on the Illamasqua website. I had worn the color multiple times and never even noticed. The second polish is Ciate's Big Yellow Taxi, a gorgeous, totally opaque yellow creme! This is the first yellow that I've ever actually liked on my nails. It's so bright and fun for this time of year!

 I have two simple lip products that are must-haves for me right now. They are the Maybelline Baby Lips.. one in Melon Mania (left) and one in Twinkle. Melon Mania gives my lips just the slightest bright pink color. It almost just enhances my normal lips. This is the only lip color I've been wearing lately. It puts my look together without making me look overdone. Twinkle just comes out clear and I use it as a nice dose of moisture when I'm not wearing much makeup. And they both smell SO yummy.. a definite bonus for me!
Lastly, on a non-beauty note.. With the days getting sunnier, these Ray-Ban Wayfarers haven't left my side. I wear them anywhere and everywhere! I got them as a late birthday gift, and I'm in love. I have two other pairs of Wayfarers, but this Light Tortoise color is just so nice and carefree. Regardless of what color they are, these sunglasses are amazing quality.. a million times better than any other designer sunglasses I've owned. So if you're in need of some nice sunnies, definitely check these out!

Until next time...
