Hi Lovelies! I've been beaten down with allergies for the most of May so I'm really looking forward to June as the season will be ending soon. This month, I had lots of amazing products to try but I have to say some of my major favorites really come from Dior. I loved all of their new summer makeup and I've been replicating that look each day for an effortless, pretty everyday glow. You can see my Dior post to find out more. Enjoy the start of Summer!
1. Dior Diorskin Nude Air Glow Powder ($56 at Sephora)
This is my new go-to bronzer. I have it in 002 Fresh Light and the "watercolor" effect just brightens up my cheeks. Also per my Dior makeup artist Kevin, I now use this over my eyelids. It gives soft dimension to Asian eyes. You can find out how to apply this in my Dior post.
2. Dior Eye Reviver Backstage Pros Illuminating Neutrals Eye Palette ($62 at Sephora)
This Dior eyeshadow palette has all you need for beautiful summer eyes. All of these colors work together seamlessly to create a variety of looks. Typically I never use the brushes that come with eye palettes but these are really great. I love the soft brown eyeliner and the small brush works wonderfully with it to create a soft look for my eyes. The shimmery shadows have just the right amount of shimmer to it that isn't over the top. Everything just works together to make it a beautiful, enhanced look. Using this eyeshadow with my Diorskin Nude Air Glow Powder as a base -- looks amazing too!
3. IOPE Air Cushion XP BB Cream Compact ($33.63 on Amazon)
This is just the perfect cushion compact with SPF 50+. (This one and Clinique's compact are my favorites in the cushion compact category). I love the coverage which goes on light and is buildable. It doesn't cake up on your face and has great skincare anti-aging properties in there. You get more for your money with IOPE because each box comes with an additional refil for the compact. I have been using mine for most of the month and it's still going strong! (See my Coquette review)
4. Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture Satin Radiance Lipstick in #9 Rose Stiletto ($37 at Sephora)
This is my favorite nude/mauve lipstick that is just perfect for everyday wear. I love that the color is so just flattering and it doesn't wash my face out. My YSL makeup artist says it's their best selling lipstick shade because it works for the office and everyday. I love topping with a bit of my Clarins Natural Lip Perfector (in 05 Candy Shimmer) for a glossy shine. (See my Coquette review)
5. Me Before You by Jojo Moyes ($6.93 on Amazon)
To kick off summer reading, this was a wonderful, witty, funny, heart warming book. Even though the storyline is a bit heavy (a young gal goes to care for a paraplegic), it's such a hilarious, romantic story. Bonus points that it takes place in England. I love British humor so it was more than enjoyable. The movie version comes out on Friday but I recommend you read the book first!
