May Favorites: Beauty.

Happy almost June! I seriously can’t even believe it. Cue the cliche.

I am so insanely excited that it’s almost SUMMER! My makeup and skincare routine have changed just a leeeettle bit recently since I am pregnant, but not by much. Most of the things I have been loving are things I’ve had for awhile with some new ones sprinkled in. Last month I mentioned the things I grabbed at the sephora VIB sale and some of them made the cut here. I’m also loading on up on the SPF like a crazy person as usual.

AND One thing I forgot to mention that I’ve had on my toes constantly this month is Orly fancy fuschia! It’s an oldie but goodie and I love how cool toned of a pink it is.

So now, on to this month! My favorites so far… 

Briogeo Scalp Revival Shampoo. AHHH! So I mentioned this last month BUT hadn’t told anyone I was pregnant yet. One of the weird symptoms I get while pregnant is dry skin on my scalp. I remember it happening while I was pregnant with Max because it was a morning I was headed to go shoot a video for my book and it looked like I had serious dandruff, which had never happened before. When it crept back up with this pregnancy, I nipped it in the bud immediately with new brushes (that I mentioned last month and am still loving) and then I found this shampoo. I use it once a week and absolutely love it. I’ve had no dry scalp issues since implementing that routine!

Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Blush in Iridescent Flash. I bought this at the VIB sale and am loving it. I rarely get new blushes because I love my Tarte ones as well as the Clinique Cheek Pops, but this called to me. It is so pigmented and such a pretty color. A little shimmery, but nothing too harsh.

Supergoop Everyday Sunscreen in SPF 50. I used this last year too and it works great under my makeup. It goes on my face every single morning!

Supergoop Forever Young Hand Cream. Speaking of sunscreen! I’ve had one of these since last year and it sits near my kitchen sink. I always use it if I’m heading outside (or at least I ALWAYS try) since one of those things I’d love to do daily is wear sunscreen on my hands. After a minute, it’s not greasy at all.

Sunday Riley Good Genes. Another longtime favorite, but I’ve been so regimented and back in gear with my skincare routine recently and just love the magic this makes happen on my face. I only can use it two or three times a week because my skin is dry and I absolutely loathe the scent of it, but it’s incredible. It helps SO much with texture on the skin. Amazing. Since I can’t use anything with retinol while pregnant, I use the Flora oil after applying this. And then either Tidal or my FAB Ultra Repair Cream.

Mac Lipstensity lipsticks in Medium Rare and Driftwood. I’ve mentioned these lipsticks a few times because they are soooo comfortable, but this one in Medium Rare that I picked up this month is the perfect “your lips but better” shade. So pretty. The driftwood shade is SO cool, almost between purple and gray – and surprisingly works on my skin!

Sol De Janiero Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. I raved about this ALLLLL last summer and my oh my, is my love back strong. I love this so freaking much! It smells perfect. Also, it’s already a nostalgic scent for me because we had such a great summer with Max last year, that it makes me think of all the great times. I also love the body wash and the body mist!

Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt. Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve definitely been using some Bronze Goddess already this year, but I’m loving the sample of this Jo Malone scent I got. It’s SO fresh, but not too “cologne-y” if that makes sense. Really nice!

Annnd that is it for this month. I sort of have my eye on the newer palette from Jouer (I don’t have anything from that brand!) and the NARS liquid blushes, but we shall see. What are you loving this month?
