It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye

My shade: Light and Neutral Medium (I mix them)

It’s safe to say, this concealer will most likely be in every favorites post until the end of summer and perhaps even beyond! I just talked about it in my Beach Day Essentials post because of it’s ability to stand up to water, sweat and activity. (There is an actual waterproof version that I need to try but this one just does the job so well) It also has beneficial ingredients like Collagen and Vitamins C & K. The packaging states that it can be used as a foundation which I 100% agree with, it’s so beautiful and using a Beauty Blender you only need a tiny amount to cover the face.

Almay

Almay Smart Shade 

My shade:  Light Medium

This is the foundation I have been using for everyday. Whether it’s just running errands, going to the beach, pool or gym this is the perfect product to even out my complexion while also providing a little bit of protection from the sun (SPF 15). The coverage is definitely more of a tinted moisturizer and less of a true foundation which is exactly what I want for day-to-day activity.

facepalette

Becca x Jaclyn Hill Face Palette

I have been coveting this palette since Jaclyn Hill (one of my fav youtubers) showed it on Snapchat earlier this year and it’s actually more than I imagined it would be. With two large highlights, 3 blushes and a huge high quality mirror it’s incredible for travel as well as everyday use. I don’t think there has been a day that I haven’t used this palette since purchasing it.

vita

Origins Vita-Zing SPF 15

This has been a daily staple for me for quite some time but when I ran out of it a few months ago I didn’t repurchase it again until this month when I fell in love all over again! It is essentially a 3 in 1 product, it works as a moisturizer, an SPF and a tinted moisturizer. I will usually layer this under my Almay Smart Shade and it ends up being the perfect coverage with double the SPF! It also has smart technology to adjust to your perfect skin shade so no shade matching necessary.

rollerlash

Benefit Roller Lash Mascara

I’m super obsessed with Benefit They’re Real Mascara but it’s pretty difficult to get off and sometimes too dramatic for my super natural everyday makeup look. That’s when I reach for Roller Lash. It gives long dark lashes with no hassle when removing and true to it’s name, keeping my lashes looking curly and tall all day long!

balmdotcom

Glossier Balm Dot Com

This lesser known brand is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Every product I have tried has been amazing and the Balm Dot Com might just be my favorite one (love their play on words too!). I chose the coconut flavored balm to get me in the summer mood but all of them were tempting. It’s super hydrating, long lasting and the toasty coconut scent is perfection. It’s clear and does not have SPF which makes it perfect for before bed, around the house or under other lip products. I am tempted to pick up the trio next with all the different scents.

Food-

bulletproofbar

Bulletproof Chocolate Collagen Bar

I have to preface by saying I am a food rut kinda gal and I love it. When I find something delicious I eat it E V E R Y day. So since I happened upon this super healthy and delicious protein bar, I basically haven’t gone a day without one. Bonus that their upgraded collagen protein complex promotes SKIN, muscle and joint health. I am quite literally eating my way to glowing skin!

Youtuber-

Lucy Wyndham-Read

Meet my new (free) personal trainer! Lucy has amazing HIIT (high intensity interval training) workouts as well as specific zone toning videos. I have been adding my favorites to a playlist on Youtube to create an hour long work out that I can do anywhere any time.

TV Show-

downton-abbey

Downton Abbey

I binge watched this on Amazon way too quickly this month. It’s slow to start but give it a chance and you’ll be hooked.

I hope you all had an amazing June! Let me know what your favorites were this month in the comments!
