Hey Guys! Today I am going to share my favorite beauty products for Summer. Some of these have been my favorites for a long time, but other I just recently picked up and feel are perfect for the summer months.
To start off, a bronzed face is perfect for summer. I don’t really wear any foundation during the summer because honestly it is way to hot and will just sweat right off. Because of this, I love my faithful erase paste concealer by Benefit. It works so well and you really only need a little bit, and the rest will last you until next summer. Now to get that bronzy glow, I love the cheap, but functional NYC bronzer in sunny. To give you a highlight on your face I have a baby high beam that I put right at the tops of my cheek bones and it gives your just the right amount of luminosity. A little while back Sephora had a deal where you get all three Benefit minis for $10 or $15, and because I use so little each time I don’t see the need for me to buy the full one at a large price tag. For the rest of you besides your face, I use the Jergens gradual tanner. Because I have super pale skin, I can see results with the lightest shade, but they also come in darker shades if you so desire. Moving on, I love fun colored eyeliner for the summer. I think adding in a little pop of purple or blue makes a look fun for summer ! Now I got my Urban Decay liner when it was on sale for like $2 online, but there are many cheap alternatives at the drugstore. If that’s not your thing, I love my Jordana Fabuliner that is way cheaper than a lot of others, and is much easier to use. Now my favorite eye shadow selection for the summer is from the Urban Decay Naked palette. I bought this a few years ago as a birthday present to myself, (everyone does that right? :) ) and I still love it. Every neutral shade you could possibly want in one little compact rectangle. Now, the rule is you pick one or the other to do bright colors with… either your eyes or lips… so for the days when I choose the latter I love a bright lip color. Lipsticks have always felt to old for me ( Nothing against it, just for now I haven’t gotten into them). So I love other options such as the Revlon lip butters and the Tarte Lip Surgence. They don’t dry your lips out, and also provide great color.
So as you have some fun in the sun, maybe you want to try some of these out ?
Let me know what your Summer Beauty Picks are !
So as we are approaching the end of May, it is apparent that Spring has Sprung in full swing
It has been super nice the past couple of days and as my half moon manicure is falling to shreds, I thought it would be a good time to share my top 10 nail polishes for this time of year. Normally I go for brights and sparkle, so let me know if any of these are your favorites too!

UPDATE :) I got my order in the mail a week ago
look at the beautifulness…
first I instagramed the cover..
YAY. Pretty shadows :)
Overall I am happy with the order. It came earlier than the expected date online and everything was exactly as pictured on the site
GO GO GO. Urban Decay is on sale again on Hautelook today and I am pretty sure everything is going super super fast. They have most products ( and not just the stuff they don’t sell, they have some best sellers here) at least 50% off.
I just ordered the book of Shadows IV, but I accidentally had it shipped to my home address while I am at school for the next few months.. sooo we shall see if I can change that.

Happy ( a few days belated) New Year !! Can you believe it is 2012 !?! I hope you all had a fantastic (and safe) New Years bash.. as I am reluctant to inform you all I was able to spend new years with my lovely bed, feeling sick as ever and missing out on all the new years festivities. I was a little bummbed that I didn’t get to party like it’s 2012, but as I am on the road to recovery from my illness I recognize that there are many new years to come!
Anyways I would like to share with all of you my December Favorites :)
I’m Wonderstruck blushing all the way home. I’ll spend forever wondering if you knew.. I was enchanted to meet youu.
Well I was certainly enchanted after I tried out my spanking new bottle of the Taylor Swift Perfume called Wonderstruck. First I am obsessed with how it looks. The color and sheen of the bottle along with the adorable charms make it necessary to keep on display at all times.
So I am not sure where my brain was when I was packing to come home from school for winter break(clearly it was fried by finals and needed a few days to recover), but I forgot some very important items in my suitcase. Somehow I managed to forget my straightener and curling iron &&& all my nail polish. Not even a smidge for a holiday and new years color. So clearly I had to change this very soon after I got home. Between a trip to Harmons and Ulta, I think I am now well stocked to take on a month home. ( well in the Nail Polish category.. somehow it didn’t feel right to repurchase a hair tool because the price range is a little different -_-)
The one I have tried out so far is Lunar Eclipse, which you can see in my NOTD of this week =)
I also received my Hautelook Order in the mail 2 days ago !
