My Top 6 Favorite Drugstore Highlights

Hi loves. So I've been obsessed with highlighting lately. It's been the highlight (pun intended, lol) of my everyday makeup routine. Whether I'm just running errands, going to work or for a night out I always have some highlight. It just depends on how bright I wanna shine that day, lol. I feel like it just gives such a beautiful and effortless glow to the skin and face. It really brightens everything up and even if you aren't feeling the day or feeling well, a good highlight can really bring life to your face. So I've picked these 6 (7 if you count both of the wet n wild highlights) as my top favs so far for the summer.

Here I am wearing Maybelline Strobing stick and Master Chrome.

Here's a picture of me wearing Maybelline Master Chrome in 100 Molten Gold

Here are swatches of all of them

Swatches from left to right:
Colourpop, Maybelline Strobing stick, Maybelline Strobing liquid, Wet n Wild Crown of my canopy and precious petals, Maybelline Master Chrome in 100 Molten Gold, Makeup Revolution skin kiss in peach kiss

I love the fact that these are perfect for any skin tone but I love them because they're great on tan and darker skin tones especially. They really give a beautiful glow to the skin and you can layer them to be as subtle or as bright as you want. Best of all it's all drugstore or affordable highlights so you aren't breaking the bank. Every one of them is under $10! I hope you loves give these a try, I'm sure you will love them just as much as I do.

Here's a list of the highlights and colors and the prices per my area:

Colourpop amethyst crystal liquid highlighter $8
Maybelline Master Strobing stick $8

Maybelline Master Strobing liquid $8

Maybelline Master Chrome in 100 Molten Gold $8

Wet n wild highlighting powder in precious petals and crown of my canopy $5 each

Makeup revolution skin kiss highlighter in peach kiss $6

What are your favorite summer highlighters? Have a beautiful day!

Always remember you're beautiful!

My Current Skincare Routine

Hi loves! So I've been exploring some new face oils, masks and cleansers. These are the ones that I have been loving the most so far. I rotate some of them for morning and night but I use my face oils both day and night for moisture and it also helps with my foundation as well because I notice I am less oily throughout the day when my face is more hydrated and moisturized. My skin is combination/oily with lots of oiliness in the t-zone area so don't be afraid to use oils on the skin because you're oily. It just lets your skin know that it doesn't need to produce as much because you're already moisturized.

My Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Aging Regenerating Cream Cleanser (mouth full, lol) face wash is what I use once or twice a week. Mainly when I don't wear makeup that day. Because I feel I get a nice deep exfoliating clean and it helps keep my skin clear of debris and the daily sun and weather exposure. It has a nice fresh scent which is still not chemically strong which I love. It's an exfoliating face wash but gentle on the skin and doesn't leave my face feeling raw or itchy just clean and refreshed.

These new L'Oréal face washes and masks have been amazing. I'm going to get the rest of them because I want to try them all out now. The two I've been using about 2 to 3 times a week are the charcoal and mattifying masks. You can feel the mattifying mask tightening on your skin as it dries. Really working to minimize those pores and mattify the skin. The charcoal mask works to brighten and detox the skin so it is a little less restricting as it dries. I love the pure clay cleanser. It's an exfoliating and refining mask. I have the 3 pure clay and red algae mask and I love it. It's not too rough on the skin so I am able to use it every day. I love the fact that these masks and cleansers have an earthy smell to them. That way it feels like you're actually cleansing and doing your skin some good rather than just rubbing chemicals into it.

I use Vanity Planet Spin for Perfect Skin brush with both face cleansers but sometimes I will just use my hands if I don't want too deep of a cleanse so to not irritate my skin when I've just waxed it or done another deep treatment. But I've been using this brush for almost 2 years now and I love it. I even bought my daughter one. It has a body brush for body exfoliation, a face brush, an exfoliating face brush and a pumice brush for more rough areas like elbows, knees and feet. It's an amazing brush that is so much more affordable than some other face brushes that can run you well into the $100-$400 range. I believe I had a coupon and only paid $20 plus shipping for mine. 🤗

My face exfoliating gel from European Wax Center is another favorite. I like to use this twice a week especially when I've been wearing a full face of makeup multiple times during the week. I just wash my face, dab it dry and then apply the gel and rub my hands in circular motions until I feel all the dead skin start to come off. Once I've done my whole face I go over it lightly with my spin for Perfect skin brush and rinse. My skin feels so smooth and clean after and I notice my makeup application is a lot smoother as well. It also has a nice scent which by now you should know I don't like over powering chemical smells. Especially if it's supposed to be a facial cleanser or mask for my face.

Once I'm done cleansing my face and I've done my mask, I will apply my facial moisturizers and oils. During the day I apply a light application of everything so it has time to soak into the skin and then I can apply my makeup and at night I like to use a more healthy application of product so my skin is relaxed and hydrated during the night. I first apply the Puretem moisturizer and then some of the Caudalie moisturizing sorbet. I use about 4 drops of Julep Rose Hip oil that I received in my voxbox and then I apply Vitamin E oil on top. I've noticed that my skin is much softer and more radiant now rather than waking up with a dull, dry appearance to the skin.

I apply pure castor oil to my eyebrows and lashes at night to help with growth. I've been using this for about 3 months and I've noticed some change in my brow and lash growth it's just a slow process with this method.

Towel pictured is Aquis Hair Towel (influenster sent it to me in a posh voxbox for testing purposes and I love it)

Overall I definitely recommend trying these products. They have all worked together to make my skin look more radiant and fresh. I haven't had any breakouts either since switching to this face routine. Check out these new face goodies. The L'Oréal, Olay, vitamin E and Castor oil I purchased all of those from Walmart. I hope if you try them you love them just as much as I do.

    Loreal Infallible Pro Glow Foundation Review 

    So I’ve worn this foundation for a few weeks now so I can give a good review on how it does throughout the day. I’ve worn it for literally 14 hrs straight during a work day once so I have a pretty good idea of how it does for me. Keep in mind I live in Florida so it can be really hot here during the summer which it is right now.

    (Outdoor daytime lighting) 

    The verdict: I love it! 
    It’s a little more runny than the Loreal Infallible Pro Matte Foundation and gives you a little more time to blend it on your face without setting as quickly. I’m a lover of matte foundation so I was skeptical that this would make my face feel or look too greasy. But it sets really well. I’ve worn it both with and without a primer and with and without setting spray. Without primer and a setting spray it still does exceptionally well in my opinion as far as it not running all over my face after awhile or looking really oily. Obviously a prime and set helps with the longevity of the stay power and how well it sits on the skin but it does really good all on its own. 

    (Indoor nighttime lighting)


    You can use either a brush, fingers if that’s your thing or beauty blender application. I’ve tried both brush and beauty blender. I really like using my beauty blender to apply it. I feel like it just creates a flawless airbrush type finish. 

    Over all I’d give this a 4 out of 5 just because the shade range isn’t as wide as it should be but the performance of the foundation is really great and at a $12 price point for a drugstore foundation it’s really really great in comparison with some of my other higher end foundations and the price tag makes it even better. If you haven’t tried it out by now you totally should, it’s a really great everyday foundation and gives off a really nice glow. 
    What’s your favorite foundation? I hope you’re having a beautiful Monday Loves.

    Live In Jeans 

    I could literally live in a comfy pair of jeans. Easy to style, comfy and they fit well. It’s like a dream. Especially for me because I have long legs and a little bubble butt so it’s hard to find jeans that have a good fit at the top and bottom, lol. 
      

    So when I discovered Fashion Nova  after many, many other people kept talking about them. I decided why not try them out, lol. These boyfriend jeans are literally everything. I’m pretty sure I’m going to purchase another pair because they are just so awesome. They fit well. They are loose but not baggy and they are the soft lived in distressed denim that I love. 
      

    My sneakers are awesome too. I got these from Just Fab and I love them. They are just my style and they come in white too. My bodysuit is from Forever 21 and I’m loving bodysuits right now because it’s just like having a tucked in shirt without having it ride up or pop out. 

       
       

    What’s your favorite comfy style to wear? Do you prefer heels or sneakers with it? For me it all depends on the outfit and where I’m going. But for hump day, these boyfriend jeans, sneakers and a plain black top work just fine for me. I hope you are having an awesome Wednesday. We are halfway through the week. WOO HOO!!

    Saturday Vibes

      

    I love easy weekends. I especially love easy comfy outfits. I thought this sweatsuit was so cute. Especially with the gold heart on the front and slits in the elbows and knees. I thought it added a nice touch. I went perfectly with my Nikes and Paparazzi sunglasses.
