Daily makeup inspiritation!

Today i’m giving you a little glimpse into my summertime makeup routine. As you know, I am a certified Lipstick nut so the first thing I choose is usually my lipstick then work my other makeup around it. Today I put on a tiny bit more than usual just for the sake of this blog post, but its pretty much on point.

I started with “The Balm” Balm Shelter Tinted Moisturizer in light. This moisturizer also comes in a color even lighter than light that I heard is great for those that are super light. Since I already have some color from the beach the past 2 weekends, I don’t need much more than that for my base. Next, I did “POP beauty” Sunkissed bronzer just over my forehead and cheeks. If I wear it anywhere else I end up having that whole different color neck/face business. I shied away from blush today since my skin is always much redder in the summer. Instead, I opted for Luminizer. Of course I used the “The Balm” Mary-Lou Manizer, which comes in a powder compact and literally makes me glow inside and out! I wish you could hear me squealing every time I write about it. I have my other makeup favorite, Mac Heroine Matte Lipstick on my lips. On my eyes I have both Sumida eyeliner in purple (came in my birchbox) and Earth lights Mascara (picked it up at a farmers market in Paris). Lastly, I used the Maybelline Expert Eye brow pencil to give my brows a little shape and darken them a bit. TA-DA here i am in all my glory. A little different than the queen helene masque picture eh?

MAC Moody Blooms Collection!

Beauty, Blush, Bronzer, Fluid Liner, Limited Edition, Lipstick, MAC, Makeup, Moody Blooms

This is the post I have most been looking forward to! As you may know, I am a MAC junkie as i’m sure plenty of you are too. This collection is to be released on June 26th in the U.S but I WANT IT NOW! As with all limited edition MAC collections, I am sure the best items will sell out super fast so it’s good to have an idea of what you like from the collection so you can pounce when it’s released!

moodybloomsshadow

Mac Moody Blooms Eye shadows- This collection is blowing me away. I don’t usually use many MAC eye shadows, not for any specific reasons but I tend to stick with what I know. For this collection, I will be heading straight out of my comfort zone and straight to the MAC counter. They are releasing 6 colors, 4 of which are the Veluxe Pearl textures. They are Artistic License (a shimmery peach) Lucky Green (a shimmery apple green) Deep Fixation (shimmery burgundy) and Hidden Motive (deep plum). The other 2 shadows include Blooming Mad (a purple frost) and Green room (a jungle green satin) Each of these colors are BEAUTIFUL. I usually know exactly which products I want from a collection but I would take any of the eye shadows I can get. I can not wait to try these shadows and I will provide an updated review as soon as I can get my hands on them!

macfluidline

Mac Moody Blooms Fluidline- I’m not really an avid fluidline user but I know many MAC babes love liquid liner! The 3 shades they are releasing are as follows. Copperthorne (a shimmy copper,as the name suggest), Black Ivy (just looks like black from the pictures and swatches I saw) and Nightshade which is a purple/burgundy color. For those who love liquid liners, it looks like you’re in for a treat with this collection

moodybloomssheene

MAC Moody Blooms Sheen Supreme Lipstick- I have heard from a few people that they’re disappointed MAC isn’t releasing any of their standard lipsticks with this collection. It looks like they are focusing solely on Sheen Supreme lipsticks which makes me happy because I think they deserve a lot more exposure then they get! The colors are as follows. Moody Bloom (Looks like a dark nude/ light brownish color but I really cant tell how it will look on the lips) Phosphorescent (gorgeous cotton candy pink that reminds me of Candy Yum Yum in the swatches) Pheromonal (hot pink/ magenta) Quite the thing (a bluish pink) Lust extract (a purple/fuschia color- my favorite of the bunch!) and Venomous Violet (a deep dark violet, probably not for the faint of heart)

moodyliptint

Mac Moody Blooms Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tint- I am usually not a fan of Mac lipglass but it seems like they are trying out a new formula! I’ve noticed with the Sharon Osbourne for Mac collection that they came out with those marker lipsticks, so maybe they’re trying to find the next new lippie innovation. They remind me of the Stila lip gloss in that they come in a little tube with a brush and you twist the bottom to release more product. Either way, these look awesome and I’m anxious to try them! The colors are as follows. Simply wow (plum/pink), Bubble gum (light pink), Glorious Intent (shimmery purple), Blushing Berry (a deep mauve) and Gwo-yo-mi (A fuschia pink) Obviously these colors will come out lighter than they appear due to the sheer nature of the lipglass but they all look beautiful!

moodyblush

Mac Moody Blooms Powder Blush- I also love Mac blush so I am equally as excited for some new choices! Bred for Beauty (a true matte bubble gum pink) is more on the blush spectrum while Worldly wealth (a frosty bronze) looks much more like a bronzer! I can never tell with MAC colors how it will swatch based on the color in the pan, but again I will update you as soon as I am able to try the products!

moodymascara

Mac False Lashes Mascara and 2  new brushes- I’m not sure what exactly is new about this mascara since I have seen this name before (Mac tends to recycle names a few years later with their collections, I have no idea why) but the packaging looks slightly different. The tube is shaped so there is a handle on the wand for better precision but if this is just another release on the colored False Lashes Mascara from 2013, I am on board since those have an awesome clump free formula! The new 211 brush would pair great with with the Fluidline. The 239 brush is perfect for any of the new eyeshadows, a great excuse to pick up a brush as well!

 

My product wish list!

Beauty, Bronzer, Illuminator, Lipstick, Makeup, One Step Correct

stillaonestep

Stila One Step Correct This product has been on my wish list for some time but I swore to myself I would finish up all my other similar products first! It comes in a swirly pump with the colors green brown mixed together. I think this product is perfect for the daytime as a standalone. It does a great job at reducing redness and makes my skin appear smooth and even. The texture feels like a moisturizer and sinks right in. It seems to act a primer as well and is the perfect base to throw on some bronzer and blush.

laurabody

Laura Mercier Baked Body Bronzer This product just screams shimmer straight from the pan. I’m usually not a fan of baked bronzers but this one has me hooked. It’s a little pricey coming in around 55 but I must say it is a huge compact. This bronzer is perfect for the all over sun kissed and shimmery glow. Not to mention it’s a body bronzer so you can brush it all over yourself, can’t beat that!

mactarttrendy

Mac Tart & Trendy Lipstick I am a huge mac buff and I’m obsessed with all things orange so why wouldn’t I want to get my hands on every orange lipstick they make. I currently rock Morange all the time but this color is screaming my name! A girl can never have too many lipsticks, especially MAc ones!

kogendo

Koh Gen Do illuminatior I got this as a an 100 point gift from the Sephora website and it ended up lasting me over a month. Not until I went to my local Sephora to purchase it did I realize it was 40 dollars and I just couldn’t squeeze it. However, this brand is up there with the best. Recently I’ve been loving japanese makeup brands and koh gen do is awesome and has some really interesting products. This illuminatior literally makes me look like an angel. It gives the perfect amount of sheen to liven you up and you hardly have to use any product. It’s a shiny liquid that I liked to mix with my foundation to give myself an all over glow. If you’re looking to splurge on a liquid luminizer, this is it.

limecrime

Limecrime Velvetines Lip Gloss I don’t actually know how I don’t own one of these yet, but of all the products on this list I am most likely to purchase a Velvetines. I see these “glosses” on blogs all the time and from the looks of it they are not glossy at all. It comes with a standard lip gloss wand but on the lips they literally do look like velvet. They only have 3 colors currently but both the coraland the red that I’ve seen are stunning. They look like they might be a bit drying but based on what I’ve heard that is not the case. This will be my first Limecrime purchase so il keep you guys updated!
