Summer Lovin’ | Beauty Faves


This Summer season seems like it has come and gone too fast! Not complaining though— Fall is just around the corner and as you all know, it is my favorite season of all… (Not that we really get much Fall foliage here in Miami but at least we have PSL to play pretend).

If you’ve been following my blog and YouTube channel, you know that I have been a die hard fan of Origins for well over a decade. No matter how many moisturizers and eye creams I try, I always go back to my holy grail products: GinZing SPF 40 Tinted Moisturizer and GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream + Depuff.

unnamed-1Most days I only wear my tinted moisturizer and eye cream, but whenever I want to kick it up a slight notch, I like putting on my Chanel CC Cream. I absolutely love this CC cream— it’s so much lighter than foundation, yet still gives you some coverage and the most perfect ‘dewy’ look. Just add a little bronzer to your cheeks and you’re ready to go! To top off my look and for occasional mid-day spritzers, I always carry with me my Korres H2 Rose Hydrating Face Mist. Whenever I am getting ready for work, I leave the make up part for the car. It takes me less than 10 minutes and I always keep the basics with me inside my favorite little makeup pouch from Ted Baker.

…And speaking of favorites! I literally cannot get enough of my Chanel mascara. I discovered it through my aunt (which I so lovingly call ‘roachie‘). Ever since she introduced me to it, I have never looked back. It’s been my go-to mascara for almost a year, so it’s certain to say it is a must-have in my list of beauty essentials!

When it comes to the perfume department, CREED takes the cake! I’ve always had a few favorite scents, but Spring Flower has always been a signature scent of mine, along with Coco Mademoiselle from Chanel and SI from Giorgio Armani. Slowly but surely, though, CREED is all Joey and I have been wearing lately. The price is definitely on the high side but it is so absolutely perfect. I always tell Joey “you smell expensive” when he uses his haha! A little fun fact about Creed — James Creed creates the first Creed fragrance, Royal English Leather, for King George III and his court.

Below are a few recommendations for you + your beau:

  1. Creed | Spring Flower
  2. Creed |Millésime Imperial
  3. Creed | Love in White — the only perfume my mother has worn in the past 10 years
  4. Creed | Virgin Island Water
  5. Creed | Aventusthis is the one Joey wears

And finally, there’s Charlotte Tilsbury— giving me #AllTheFallFeels with her witchy, cosmic vibes from her new collection of lipsticks, HOT LIPS 2. The “JK Magic” one was of course, my absolute favorite and it’s not difficult to see why. But more importantly, it is the most perfect nude lipstick you’ll ever find. Can we say #perfection?

So with this, and a little glimmer of magic, I leave you.

Until next time, friend!
