Hey Curvy Girly’s!
I’m so excited that it’s August because it’s my BIRTHDAY month!!! So, with this July favorites post and video, I will be giving away a special gift, but you have to go to my Youtube Channel to find out what it is!
July was a month filled with lots of goodies that I enjoyed using for various reasons and I wanted to share them with you because when I find something that I love. I just can’t keep it a secret, so hence My July Favorites.
Let’s get started with some of the makeup finds that I’ve ben loving. First Up is the MAKEUP FOREVER Step 1, Hydrating Primer. This primer is perfect for dry to normal skin as this is really hydrating to the skin. I’ve noticed that my foundations work really well with the primer as well. The scent is light and subtle and dissipates fairly quickly. Next is the MAKEUP FOREVER Mist and Set Setting Spray. It’s alcohol free so it doesn’t dry out the skin. Great at setting the makeup and limits transfer very well. Since there is no alcohol, I use a fan to help the drying process move a little quicker.
The BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in CHAMPAGNE POP, the collar with Jaclyn Hill is simply amazing. I know that there have been some discussions that the color didn’t work well for darker skin complexion, I noticed that if I start with a small amount and build it up that it works perfectly without the ashy look. I love this color and I also use it as a brow bone highlight, in my inner tear duct as well as on the tip of my nose, a little on the bridge of the nose and I will dust my chin as well. Definitely a great product. Next is the BOBBI BROWN Skin Foundation Stick in Expresso. I’ve been using this as my contour color. I use it in the hallows of the cheek, temples, around my jawbone and done my nose. It’s been working perfectly because it applies very nicely and blends out with ease. The shape of the stick allows you to get the product into the needed areas a little more precisely so I tend to use less. LOVE it!!!
If you’ve been following me on Instagram than you already know how in love I am with the MILANI AMORE MATTE LIP CREME. They are long lasting, very pigmented and available at the drug store so the price point is low. I’ve been wearing CRUSH and ROMANCE all the time, both are deep colors. Crush is a reddish brown, while Romance is a deep red. These are a must try!
My natural hair has been getting some extra treatment with the BE KEKOA product line lately. The SMOOTHING LEAVE-IN, Be CLEAN CLEANSING CONDITIONER and Be MOIST HYDRATING CONDITIONER have been in constant rotation this last month and I loving how my hair feels. My hair is soft, manageable and has been responding to styling much better. BeKeKoa is organic and the salon is located in Temecula, CA. The owner Brandie KeKoa, is amazing and has always made herself available for questions. I appreciate that.
Body Care is important and I love making my skin feel loved. NIVEA Coconut Moisturizing Body Wash has been my go to for the last month. It has my skin feeling so soft and loved. I literally feel as though I don’t need to moisturize after a shower when I use this product. The smell is subtle and doesn’t linger on the skin, but it does leave your bathroom smelling like the tropics.
MAC’s Time Check Lotion has been my nighttime moisturizer all month. I love how my face is responding to the reducing the pore size and it just really keeps the face with a very radiant tone. MITCHELL & PEACH Fine Radiance Face Oil was added to my morning regime a while ago, but I had to share because I love this oil. I truly feel like it’s perfect for all skin types because it’s so lightweight and not heavy on the skin at all. AVEENO Postively Radiant Brightening Cleanser has been my go to cleansing for my nighttime routine. I use it with my CLARISONIC Mia 3, which gives me a deep down clean and reduces my breakouts. Leave my skin feeling amazing. The Mia 3 is a cleansing device that you use to remove deeply embedded dirt. It exfoliates and leave the skin feeling soft.
If you want to win your very own CLARISONIC Mia 3 that I’ve been loving in my July Favorites, I ask that you subscribe to my Youtube Channel, Like the Video (July Favorites) and leave a comment telling me one of your own nighttime routine tips! That’s it!
