July has been a pretty good month for me. My family took a vacation to Missouri at the beginning of the month, and I’ve spent the rest of the time relaxing at home. I’m also busy preparing for college and trying to get everything that I want to get done before I start! Oh, how my list is ever growing!
As for favorites, a staple this month has been Dove Dry Shampoo. I haven’t committed to washing my hair every other day, but I’m slowly getting to that point. I’m also a night showering, so some of my late nights out have resulted in the use of this dry shampoo to get rid of the oil. I love how it smells, and it does its job! I also started using The Body Shop Vitamin C Daily Moisturizer again. It smells like oranges and keeps my skin hydrated and protected from the sun all day! My signature scent this month has been Victoria Secret Eau So Sexy: it smells floral, fruity, and warm.
A constant staple in my makeup collection is Too Faced Soleil Matte Bronzer (Swatch). Right now I have my sample size of the Medium/Deep shade, but once I finish this I will be picking up Milk Chocolate as I feel that is more suited for my skin tone. I recently picked up Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter in Opal (Review), and it has quickly become my favorite highlighter. I apply it with Real Technique’s Setting Brush and get the perfectly applied and blended highlighter.
I’ve got to be honest and say that I have not worn much makeup this month. I did recently go out for my friends birthday, and these are some the products that I used. The only brow pencil that I’ve used so far is L’oreal Brow Stylist Definer in Blonde. It matches my brow color perfectly and lasts a long time. I also used Rimmel Scandal Eyes in Sparkling Black to line my tight line. I mistakingly bought Sparking Black instead of black, but I like how it gives a little extra sparkle and it’s waterproof! For lips, I’ve been keeping it simple with some of Rimmel Exaggerate Lip Liner in Enchantment all over the lips. It’s the perfect matte rosy-nude color. I have continued to love Covergirl Lashblast Plumpify Mascara this month. I love how fluttery and full it makes my lashes look, but still feels lightweight.
I got a new computer this month! I needed a new computer for school, so I got the MacBook Pro. I just got this computer a few days ago (but still in July), but it was my most exciting purchase this month!
I’ve been trying to burn down my candles before leaving for college (sad I can’t burn any candles). My favorite has been Bath & Body Works Black Sands. I haven’t actually burned this one, but I accidentally bought the same one in another package because I loved the scent so much! For books, I just finished The Unexpected Everything by Morgan Matson. I loved the story, just like all of her books (she is one of my very favorite authors!). I love how she keeps her stories light, but also puts some depth in there. The perfect book for summer!
