Favorite Summer Beauty Products

Hey Guys!! Happy Friday!! This post is going to be about my favorite beauty products that I love to use all Summer long!! I'm thinking of turning this into a seasonal post.

Tinted Moisturizer

When it starts to get really humid and hot outside, I like to keep it light on my face. I put away my BB cream and other foundations and only use my tinted moisturizer. The only one that I have found in my shade is by Stila. This was $34 but so worth it. It is so lightweight, I forget I have it on. It blends so well with my complexion and gives a nice fresh and flawless look. It also has SPF 20 which is good when you are in the sun. Hopefully I can find another tinted moisturizer that matches me but for now I'll stick with this one.


I just love the glowy, bronze look during the summer. These are two of my favorite bronzers to use during the summer. I have two from Victoria's Secret but I dropped one and it is in pieces :( so I have been using this Mega Glow Bronzer. It has just the right amount of shimmer and just looks amazing. I got this during a Semi Annual sale so I'm not sure if this one is still being sold but they do have great bronzers. When I don't want to wear a shimmer bronzer, I reach for my Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer in Medium/Deep. This smells just like chocolate and makes me want some every time I use it. I love the color pay off and just how good it looks.

Gold and Bronze Shadows

I love rocking a gold or bronze shadow during the summer. It goes so well with the glowy, bronze look that I love so much. I do use other colors but tend to grab for gold or bronze shadows. These two are Mulch and Amber Lights by Mac.

Bright Polish Colors

I love bright colors and cannot wait until Spring and Summer to wear them on my nails. I always wear bright pink all summer but try to switch up the colors with yellows, blues, corals and other fun colors. I have so many bright nail polish colors to choose from.

Fruity and Floral Scents

When it starts to get warm, I put away my musky, strong scents and bring out my floral and fruity scents. To me, these scents are lighter and perfect for the warm weather and just scream summer.

So that is it for my favorite summer beauty products. What products you do love to use in the summer? Comment below and let me know!!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Tanya!! Too Faced bronzer is pretty awesome!! I want to try the Chocolate Bar pallet!

  4. Love your picks! I'm all about the tinted moisturizers and I love your nail polish choices. Ok so I have a question, I've been wanting to try bronzing but I have no clue how to chose a bronzer for my skin

    1. Thanks Rhondine!! I know Mac has pretty good bronzers and NYX. You want to pick one that gives your skin a nice glow.

  5. I go for gold and bronzy shadows too every Summer. I'm trying to add some color on my eyes lately but I usually stick to these shades when I'm in a rush. Those bronzers are pretty, I still have to try that Too Faced bronzer which everybody loves. Great faves and it is so Summer-y!

    1. Thanks Jackie. The Too Faced bronzer is pretty great if you want a matte bronzer!

Morphe Brush Review

Happy Tuesday!! Just can't believe Christmas is next week!! Did you get all your shopping done? I did for the most part, now it's just putting things together lol!! Well this post is going to be a review on Morphe brushes. I'm sure you have heard the name and seen some of your favorite makeup artist using them. I purchased these at IMATS back in April and have been loving them. I already want to purchase more. So let's get into the reviews.

It is always important to blend, blend blend your makeup!! I do have a few blending brushes but I wanted to have a few backups when I clean them. I love how soft these brushes are and how well they blend out eye shadows. I mainly use the Pointed Blender(black bristles) for the the outer crease and the deluxe crease(brown bristles) for right above my lid.

I can't get over the fact that October is here and it still feels like Summer. We had a brief Fall weekend but Summer was like Nope, I'm still hanging around lol!

Have you tried the new Starbucks drink? It seems like it is missing something, like it needed to be sweeter or needed some saltiness. 
They recently opened a Zara in the mall near me! It is so nice in there, I only purchased one dress.

Fro Butter Emu Oil Review

Well I guess Summer is still trying to hold on lol. I was about to pack away all the Summer clothes but I should leave them out I guess. I'll go through all my Fall wardrobe in the meantime to see what I'll need when the weather gets cooler. Today I am sharing my review on Fro Butter Emu Oil. 

I don't know if I told you guys but I am one of Fro Butter's ambassadors for the next 6 months! I was so excited when I got the email about being chosen. You will be seeing post about their products more on here and my Instagram. 
A little background on this company before we hop into the review: 
Fro Butter is a Black Owned Business started in 2012 by owners Susana Stewart and Caroline Maina. They were in the market for affordable and organic hair products and it all started from there. 
I was introduced to this product last year when I received it in my Onyx Box. I really loved the product and so did my husband and son lol. Taken directly from the site, the Emu Oil is designed…
