June Beauty Bliss

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

With summer, a host of beauty/skin predicaments come along as well. Several people want to tan but don't want to damage their skin under the sun's unforgiving rays, some complain of skin striped off of its moisture aka dry/dehydrated skin, some find ways to keep their make-up from melting...this list can go on, right? In order to combat all this and more, this month's Beauty Bliss consists of some of my favorite things.

Want to achieve that radiant bronzed look without having to spend a minute under the sun or tanning salons? Then you must give this a go- Une Golden BB Cream. It's not just a BB cream- it's a tan enhancer too. It's absolutely gorgeous!

You can use this in two ways: enhance your tan with this cream so you can end up with golden luminous skin or, you can do what I do- use this on top of the cheekbones (or nose bridge), eyebrow bone as a highlighter or even as eye-shadow. As a bonus, you can also use it on your shoulders and decollete area.

The BB cream is made out of natural ingredients and contains fine iridescent golden particles. The cream is light and feathery to touch and blends beautifully to impart a glow that Cleopatra would love! Apply either with fingers or a brush. I love love love it! Unfortunately, the swatch doesn't show up clearly on camera.

A sun-kissed skin looks awesome with pink lips and I love it when the pink isn't too bright or in your face. I tried Mikyajy's Charming Matte Lipstick in 04 Pink Tulip.

I have a thing for matte lipsticks (still searching for that perfect red matte lipstick). This one is a a light pink that is close to the color of lips (I'm not a beige nude lipsticks).

And here's a swatch of the lip color. If you are looking for a matte lipstick that doesn't dry out your lips and stays put for hours, then give this a whirl.

Not a lipstick girl? Then try lip gloss. Bourjois 3D Effect Volume & Brilliance Gloss keeps lips hydrated with a subtle plumpness while giving them a smooth glossy finish. It's light and non-sticky.

Coral is one of the emerging colors on the catwalk, so you have the perfect excuse to make this gloss a part of your collection.

One layer will create a subtle coral finish while a second will add a color punch. Available in 15 shades.

Looking for a fresh fragrance? Dueto Citiver is a spicy blend of lemon, nutmeg, cedarwood, grapefruit, patchouli, musk and more.

While it is positioned as a unisex fragrance, I think men would prefer over women. It's a strong fragrance and definitely more suitable for evenings.

You can look pretty and smell great but a parched/dry skin is just uncomfortable to look at and touch. Enter Jane Iredale Pommisst Hydration Spray. This facial spray/mist is infused with one of my favorite fruits- pomegranate!

It keeps the skin hydrated and smooth from the moment you spray it on (I use it after cleansing). It contains doubles up as a UV protector, contains White Tea Leaf extract and Olive Leaf among other ingredients and has a wonderful fragrance. You can use it post make-up as well or whenever you feel like you want to have soft, supple skin. It's your trusty handbag partner and my must-have for the summer. I love the fresh fragrance- totally reminds me of pomegranates!

These are a few of my summer favorites! What's yours? Is there something you just can't do without this summer?
