A new season means it’s time to refresh! Today, I’m sharing a few beauty products that I am loving right now. Do you switch up your beauty routine with a new season? During the warmer months, I pair my beauty routine down quite a bit. I up the sunscreen and lighten up the makeup. Here’s a look at some of my favorites.
Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Cushion Compact
My sales person at Nordstrom recently recommended this product to me. I have been using it for about 2 weeks and I have to say I love it! With a great color match, you feel like you are wearing nothing – yet better than nothing, because my skin feels hydrated and comfortable when it’s on.
Why it’s different: It’s infused with skin care benefits to help replenish skin’s natural energy and stave off environmental damage. It boosts skin’s glow with skin brighteners and soft-focus pigments and goes from sheer to medium coverage with just a few dabs. It also replenishes skin’s natural energy with energizing caffeine and lychee, while pink silk tree extract and SPF 35 help soothe skin and stave off environmental damage. A unique capsule infuses foundation into the cushion with each dab, so you can control how much product you get. Plus, the airtight compact helps minimize dryout – Nordstrom.com
Urban Decay Naked Basics Eyeshadow Palette
Perfect for everyday, go light for day or heavier at night, I find this is the only palette I need.
No. 7 Stay Perfect Amazing Eye Pencil
Glides on and stays put. Pair it with the Urban Decay Naked Palette and off you go!
Lip Slip by Sara Happ
Lip Slip not only keeps my lips moisturized day and night, it doubles down up as a lip gloss over a brush of color.
Julep Illume Face and Eye Brightner
A lightweight eye illuminator packed with antioxidants for long-term brightening and smoothing without creasing or wearing off. I wear this under my eyes daily.
L’oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur
Instant Skin Smoother | Finishing cream | SPF30
L’oreal Revitalift Miracle Blur Instant Eye Smoother
I wear this daily for a smooth look under tired eyes and to blur crows feet.
A light feel for the hot summer months, plus moisturizing to boot! On regular re-order in my Amazon account.
This double duty product works as a lip and cheek stain. I’ve been using this product for over 20 years, it lasts forever. For a natural look, I brush it on my cheeks as well as lips, then layer Lip Slip over the stain.

Salux Nylon Japanese Beauty Body Towel
I can’t live without this multi-tasker scrubber! It lathers up far more than my regular sponge which saves on pricey body wash. Hold it horizontally, and you can scrub your backside to your hearts content. Great from removing sunscreen! Get the 3-pack. As soon as my kids and husband used mine, they claimed the extras as theirs!
Hempz Herbal Body Moisturizer
We all know that time in the sun dries out the skin. Hempz absorbs quickly, isn’t sticky and smells so yummy. I am loving their new fragrance, Sweet Pineapple & Honey Melon right now.
Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Lotion
Wonderful smelling, moisturizing and easy on the budget…$5.29 for 13.5 oz!
Curel Hydra Therapy Lotion
In a rush? Apply lotion BEFORE you towel off, on to wet skin. It’s activated by water and claims to penetrate deep into the skin surface. Bonus, you don’t have to wait for your lotion to sink in before getting dressed

My pal Kim Wheeler over at Northern California Style recently published a very informative post titled, My Skincare & Makeup and the Trend for Less. In this post Kim talks about products she has recently tried and liked. She also talks about her new effort to wear less make-up and focus on skincare. Read more, HERE.
