When it comes to summer I am all about some ‘summer-proof’ makeup. You know the drill- “less is usually more” and anything that can help add some instant sass to a look is a score. Being a semi #beautyhoarder I have used my fair share of beauty products, but in the warmer months I tend to go for a solid neutral like look of earthy tones for the day and more than often add some sass to my night-time look with a bit of rich lips. So its fair to say I am seasoned in the neutral look department and its finally time to venture out of my comfort zone. So its time to join me in a venture out of my usual and into #WalgreensBeauty and Summer Beauty EssentialsWalgreensBeauty_Store (1)On a recent outing to my neighborhood Walgreen’s to pick up a prescription, I was cruising the beauty section. While walking around I started to notice some serious beauty launches that I have been meaning to check out- especially since the summer beauty launches are usually up my alley of my usual routine. Sheeny, shimmery metallics and neutral gorgeous sandy hues- all shades that scream Jamie loud and clear… After quite a while of cruising, I fell upon a line of Revlon Colorstay Moisture Lip Stains– a vibrant shades of gorgeous lippies in bright shades of coral, pink, berry and peachy tones. I am hooked and totally obsessed. I instantly grabbed two and decided this summer it is time to get outta the comfort zone, and jump head in to color. Anxious to try out my goodies, I rushed home and let the color action begin. eeeekkkkk…

#walgreensbeauty- #Collectivebias- #cbias- #ad- #shop- beauty- makeup-daytime- beauty-makeuplifeloveStarting with a solid day look. I decided to keep things pretty neutral-of course. Light, sheeny skin thanks to the new Maybelline Dream Wonder Liquid Foundation. Some simple natural eyes, a swipe of lash boosting mascara via Maybelline Volum’ Express Pumped Up Colossal Mascara. OMG this mascara rocks. The curved brush is hands down phenomenal and assists with adding some serious depth and volume to the lashes with a flick of the wrist- obsessed. Paired with a bit of a neutral eye, a bit of peachy pink color on the cheeks and lips topped with my new favorite #summerlip a la Revlon Colorstay Moisture Lip Stain in Rio Rush. This color is simply gorgeous. A simple easy, daytime beauty look with a dash of vibrant color. 

For the night I went with a bit of a more dramatic look. I added some oomph to the eyes by slathering the lashes with an extra coat of mascara for some much-needed volume. Thanks to the Maybelline Volum’ Express Pumped Up Colossal Mascara. I lined the inner eyes and waterline with a bit of Rimmel London Scandaleyes pencil liner. I opted for a dark brown so it can act as a bit of double duty- liner for the eyes and a bit of eyebrow fill-in. Topped with a pinch of golden champagne cream shadow to the brow bone for some extra glam. Added another layer of blush on the cheeks for a bit of flush to the cheeks. Glowing skin, a simple dramatic eye and the look is complete with a nice layer of Revlon Colorstay Moisture Lip Stain in Parisian Passion. This dark bitten berry shade is luxurious on the lips and the perfect amount of oomph to look. Ready, set, time to go out. A step out of the comfort zone into color land-mission accomplished!
