I can’t believe we’re into the end of May! I’m loving all the summer makeup and have some amazzzzing favorites this month! A few of the things are items I mentioned in last month’s post when I covered my favorite Sephora picks for the VIB sale. SO many loves.

Ummm also can we talk about how I still went into Sephora’s on every single stop of my book tour for the first few weeks?! So I have multiple new favorites! Then some are oldies but goodies. And I can’t wait to hear what you are loving in the comments!

Here are the best of the best below!

Coola Sunless Tan Face Serum. I actually bought this last year but just started using it this year and am in LOVE. It’s like a gel serum and the tan develops fairly quickly (at least for me and I have translucent skin) and lasts. It doesn’t look orange at all. I adore it! Sometimes I mix it with my moisturizer too. But mostly I use it alone.

Sol de Janiero Shower Gel Cream. I love using this in the summer because it smells like HEAVEN. Every summer – and at least through September – this will be my shower gel. I forgot to grab it out of my shower for a pic though!

Tan-Luxe The Gradual Tan Lotion. This stuff is amazing. I am pretty loyal to St Tropez for self-tanner (I use the 3 hour express!) and while I still use that, using this daily or every other day makes me look tan. Like, actually tan. It’s also a very thin lotion, so it’s really easily to smooth along your skin. And most importantly for me – it dries down completely and it doesn’t smell at all – both of which are really important since I’m nursing Emilia and she crawls all over and grabs me.

Kat Von D Liquid Lip in Backstage Bambi. Well. This was an impulse buy but I couldn’t stay away from this stunning HOT PINK. It is so bright and vivid. It’s neon. It’s the hot pink that you wear when you’re only wearing mascara, concealer and nothing else. Maybe some highlighter. You know? Freaking over it.

Marc Jacobs Omega Bronzer Coconut Perfect Tan. I have waited for this bronzer since last year. I couldn’t get my hands on it as it sold out everywhere (and it did this year too)… so I basically stalked all the places and ordered this as soon as it went on sale. I love it! It’s gorgeous for pale skin (probably not dark enough for medium to dark skin tones) and doesn’t look orange on me. It also smells like summer!

Milk Makeup Eye Pigment. OMG. I can’t even explain how much I love it. It was another impulse buy. I bought two shades – Hotel Lobby and Afterparty. I wear both separately and mix them together too. They are so pretty, don’t budge from the eyes and I get lots of compliments on them! Easy to apply too. Like no fuss at all.

NARS Fort de France Highlighter. I don’t need another highlighter at all but grabbed this during the spring VIB sale. It’s so gorgeous. While I adore my RMS highlighter, when I have to wear more makeup for events or photos, the RMS is tricky to use over/under bronzer or blush because it doesn’t dry down right away. This is super gorgeous and pinky-champagne.

Tom Ford Soleil Blanc. This is still my number one scent right now for summer! It’s SO delicious smelling. Coconutty but not artificial. I think it just smells like sunshine. I have the body spray too!

It’s insane how HOT it got here this week so of course right now I’m barely wearing any makeup. I am loving my supergoop SPF and am trying the drunk elephant one again, so we shall see. Can’t wait to hear what you’re loving below!
