Friday Favorites: Summer Beauty Finds

*This post contains affiliate links*

Happy Friday y'all!

Summer beauty is kind of it's own animal because it's HOT and you're usually a little more busy with all of the fun outdoor activities so you're looking for easy and light, and you're also looking for bright, fun colors to match the season. These are just some of my recent finds that I am loving!

*Disclaimer- I am not, nor have I ever claimed to be, an expert or a beauty blogger. Also I'm cheap so this stuff is not high end. Just so you know*


Oil of Olay 4-in-1 Daily Facial Cloths

Amazon
Even though my Summer routine doesn't change like it used to as a kid, I still feel like Summer is the time to kick back and relax, you know? So any little thing that can save me a few minutes in my routine is much appeciated! Or they're handy if you stay up way too late watching Netflix or you stumble in after a late movie at the theater and you can barely keeps your eyes open to brush your teeth and wash your face...not that I would know what that's like...

I like that these still foam up with water so they feel like they get my face more clean than the wet-wipe type cloths, plus they would be so much easier to pack for those Summer trips than a bottle of liquid cleanser.


Wet n' Wild Megalast in I Need A Refresh-Mint

Amazon

Ok so it had mint in the name and I actually bought it because I wanted a mint green polish, but once it's on my nails to me it's really more of an aqua. It worked out great though because it is the perfect summer color!

*FYI Essie's Mint Candy Apple is the perfect mint green, so now I own that one too.





NYC Liquid Lipshine in Soho Peach

Amazon
I LOVE this color, it's gorgeous on top of a mauve lipstick like this one or by itself, it has a nice amount of shimmer but not too much, and it's actually not super sticky which is amazing for a gloss like this!

Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner in Blue Lagoon

Birchbox
I got this in my June Birchbox and at first I was like, "hmm not so sure about this" because I don't usually wear colored eyeliners. But I thought I would give it a shot and I actually love it! It's a gorgeous color and it's a soft, blendable consistency so I drew a somewhat thick line and then blended it to where it looked more like an intense eyeshadow. Then I used my usual grey liner on top and it looked fabulous! Just the right amount of drama and pop of color without making me look like a clown or a 5 year old that got into mom's makeup. Now I want all of the other colors!

 Curl Keeper Gel
Amazon
This was another Birchbox find, actually from a few months ago but it's really coming in handy now that the Florida humidity is in full force AND I'm too lazy to straighten my hair every day (or like, ever). It defines my natural curl really well without making my hair feel crunchy and gross.

What are you loving lately for Summer beauty? 

Also here's a few funnies because I just can't do a Friday post without funnies, it's like a law. 





Hope you all have a lovely weekend! If you need me I'll be curled up on the couch binge-watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix and probably eating something bad for me. Cheers to the weekend!

  9. I have mint candy apple on my toes RIGHT NOW so I think that's an excellent choice. I'm going to have to check out that curl keeper because I have a huge mass of thick curly out of control hair and there is no point in straightening it in the summer because humidity.

    Have a great weekend!

  20. My mom has told me time and time again how much she loves those Olay facial wipes and I always thought she was over-exaggerating their greatness. Until I tried them and realize they are a wonder!
