July Beauty Edit – Skincare and Makeup

I love doing my monthly beauty edits, it’s a cross between a monthly favorites post and a makeup wishlist post.  I read so many blogs every day and I rack up a pretty good beauty wishlist from that, and I love it.  This is my July beauty edit, consisting of both high end and drugstore, and both beautiful makeup and stellar skincare.  Enjoy.

FAB Anti-Redness Serum - July Beauty Edit | Born To Be Bright

FIRST AID BEAUTY ANTI-REDNESS SERUM 50ML

I’d love to add a serum to my skincare routine, and I think that an anti-redness one would be a good choice for me.  My skin is a bit red because of sensitivity and I think this would have a positive impact.

FAB Ultra Repair Liquid Recovery - July Beauty Edit | Born To Be Bright

ULTRA REPAIR LIQUID RECOVERY

Also FAB skincare, the Liquid Recovery seems like it would also be perfect to add to my daily routine.  It claims to hydrate, soothe, and comfort the skin and what more could you ask for?

Benefit the POREfessional License to Blot - July Beauty Edit | Born To Be Bright

BENEFIT COSMETICS POREFESSIONAL LICENSE TO BLOT OIL-BLOTTING STICK

This guy is a life-saver for me in the summer, I use it as my primer under my foundation.  Usually I swipe it across my forehead, cheeks, nose and chin.  It leaves a really smooth matte finish, perfect for foundation to go over.

Z Palette - July Beauty Edit | Born To Be Bright

Z PALETTE LARGE PALETTE

While I have too many eyeshadow palettes already, I really want to start a Z Palette, I have two single shadows right now and they are just floating so I need a magnetic palette to put them in.  Then, I want to get some Mac shadows and depot others in my collection too.

Foreo Luna Mini, Grey - July Beauty Edit | Born To Be Bright

 

FOREO LUNA MINI – COOL GREY-COLORLESS

I’m going to be getting a Foreo Luna Mini in the fall, and I’m deciding on colors.  I love the Sunflower Yellow but I think only the Luna Play comes in that color.  I love the grey but then again I kind of want to be adventurous and get a bright color.  See this post and this post for me raving about my Luna Play.

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer - July Beauty Edit | Born To Be Bright

TOO FACED CHOCOLATE SOLEIL MATTE BRONZER

I love sweeping this around my face to give me a warm summer glow.  Since I don’t tan on my face but my body tans pretty easily, I have to keep up with the bronzer so I don’t look ghostly.  And the scent of chocolate is the cherry on top with this product.

Mac Eyeshadow Singles - July Beauty Edit | Born To Be Bright

MAC EYE SHADOW

Gotta love that price drop, $6 for amazing quality and an insane shade range is all a girl can ask for ❤️.  My Z Palette will be full of nudes and neutrals with a couple of those shimmering golds I love, a matte black and dark brown, also probably some crazy oranges and red type shades.

    I love your Edits! I have 2 mini Too Faced bronzers and I’ve decided that I’m gonna buy the full-sized soon because it’s always been my favorite! I also bought my own Z-palette at the beginning of the year and still need to finish it up with more MAC and Anastasia shadows! Whatever you do, you have to try MAC’s “Soft Brown”!!! It’s the perfect matte transition shade! xoxo

    • I’m glad you like my edits, I think they’re fun to write! Too Faced bronzers are my favorites, they aren’t too orange or too grey toned and that scent! You should do a post on your Z Palette either in progress or once you finish it up, I’d love to see it! I’ll put Mac Soft Brown on my list, thank you for the recommendation!

        I had just an amazing idea! I’ve been loving all your no makeup posts and I’m so interested in all the facial sprays you keep talking about like the grape seed one and the Mario Badescu one! I want to buy one but I’m not sure which one to get and I think facial sprays confuse a lot of people so maybe you could do a facial spray guide post where you compare all of them and what they’re used for! It would really help me out!! xoxo

      • Awesome idea, I’ve been brainstorming a ton of posts for August because I’m going to be posting 5 times a week next month (call me crazy). I’ll definitely do that, it sounds like it would fit right in with some of the other posts I have planned, thank you!
