June beauty buys

New month, new beauty finds. With pool parties and beach weekends approaching fast, it’s so important to have a nice waterproof mascara on hand. For vacations, I like to throw on a bit of powder, curl my lashes, and do a layer of mascara to keep myself looking fresh faced and not like I just woke up. That being said, I do have a horror story of an inexpensive waterproof mascara leading to my eyelashes falling out (yikes!), so I’m happy to have found a brand I love and can trust.

May beauty buys

We have a little over a month left in spring, and I can’t believe how quickly it’s gone by! I always seem to rush this season along, eager for summer to arrive. This month, I’m enjoying finding some good go-to products that will last me through summer. Something to keep my blonde just that, a new go-to body wash (that is a total steal), and moisturizer that will do big things for burnt out (literally) skin.

Read on for some fun buys (that won’t cost a fortune).

Made up

Certain products are just worth the splurge. While I rarely buy a dress or a pair of shoes at full price, beauty products are just something you will rarely get a good deal on. I admit that I like doing a bit of cost analysis – how long is this going to last me? and how much is it? – when it comes to buying makeup and other beauty products. A face cream that may be $40, but will last 6 months. A lipstick I’ll mostly wear on special occasions or nights out should probably have a more reserved price.

Beauty wishlist

Isn’t it the best when a Tuesday feels like a Monday? I spent the weekend in an absolutely gorgeous wedding, and I loved every second. The weather was more perfect than anyone could’ve imagined for an early September day in Maryland. I did my own makeup, and it made me realize a few products that I could afford to add to my beauty bag.
