I’m not a professional makeup artist by any means, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t love dabbling in new products and colors that are normally outside my comfort zone every now and then! Summer is the perfect time of the year to play with some color, and that’s exactly what I did with this combination of new makeup products from Sephora that I’ve added to my summer beauty arsenal. Read on to find out my current faves!
I don’t like packing on the product when it’s hot out, but if there’s one part of my face that always gets enough love, it’s my brows. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz in Dark Brown has been my go-to for years… I love how fine the tip is, making it super easy to fill in my brows in a really natural way.
When it’s super hot in Atlanta during the summer months, one of the products that I’ve been using to counter the heat has been Laura Mercier’s Translucent Loose Setting Powder. It comes in a medium-to-dark powder too, making it the perfect product for setting, baking and keeping all that extra shine away without looking ashy!
I love a matte nude lip! But these days I’ve stopped wearing the ones that dry out my lips because even if it looks good at first, it doesn’t look so glam a few hours later or after a meal. The Sephora Collection #Lipstories Lipstick in the color “Brunch Date” is the best “your lips but better” color… and I venture to bet that it’s a great universal shade for all skin tones.
Last but definitely not least is the Huda Beauty Desert Dusk eyeshadow palette. I always wear warmer colors, and I love every single shade in this palette! There are mattes, shimmers and even glitters, that I combined to create this simple, glittery burgundy eyeshadow look. The best part is that every color goes so well together, that you can never go wrong with the application… especially when you’re not an makeup expert.
