I kept my look to a straight minimum in May. I was soooo busy with a lot of work at my 9-5.
Here were my essentials:
1. VICHY Capital Soleil Bare Skin Feel Lotion SPF 45 ($29.95 CAN)
For men and women of all ages with phototypes 2, 3 or 4 who want to protect their skin efficiently from UVA and UVB rays, in an ultra-light dry-touch texture for body and face.
I will be speaking about sunscreen a lot this summer! I love this because it applies sheer. I don`t get a white cast when applied. Do you know how hard it is to find a sunscreen like that!
2. VICHY Aqualia Thermal Night Spa ($44.00 CAN)
This gel-like formula is loaded with Vichy Thermal Spa Water, hyaluronic acid and Aquabioryl for a total hydration boost. These active ingredients act in relay to lead Vichy Thermal Spa Water deep into the skin and skin cells for maximum benefits, lasting well over 12 hours.
Hydration is key! Perfect product to use after you exfoliate before bed.
*Tip: Wait about 10-20 minutes before you lie on your pillow.
3. MARK GlossWorks Lip Gloss ($14.00 CAN)Go from beach to street without a worry with a luscious formula for gorgeous glossy color that helps protect lips from drying UVA and UVB rays. Brilliant shine that lasts for hours.
Love! Love! Love this lipgloss! It contains SPF so it protects your lips from the harmful rays. It`s pigmented and has the perfect shine.
4. Essence Cherry Blossom Girl 2in1 eyeliner ($1.00 CAN on sale)
Yin & yang! both ends of the 2in1 eyeliner let you create beautiful, accurate lines – from fine to broad. thanks to its semi-permanent texture, this eye make-up is extremely long-lasting in a choice of classic black or natural dark brown.
This launched back in September and I was sooo lucky to find it on clearance for a $1.00. This stuff does not budge. Honestly it`s the perfect eyeliner! I wish there were more- I`d buy them all.
Magically transform lashes to lush, long and lustrous. A potion with strengthening proteins drenches lashes for volume. Triple-groove wand combs through for clump-free length.
Clump-free lashes! I personally would say that it gives me more volume than length. I apply 3 to 4 coats to get full volume.
6. Sephora Collection Contour Eye Pencil 12 HR Wear ($6.00 CAN)
A waterproof eye pencil with a long-wearing, matte black shade.
It`s so hard to find a matte eyeliner that last all day! This one is perfect because you don`t have to "set" it and it's paraben-free!
7. Hourglass N° 28 Lip Treatment Oil ($49.00 CAN)
A richly concentrated oil blend of cutting-edge actives, botanicals, and skin-rejuvenating vitamins for the delicate lip area.
