Summer Faves

Let's talk summer beauty routine. Living in San Diego, I'm fortunate enough to enjoy fairly great weather all year round, but even then, I still have to change it up for a few months. Ladies, drastic bronzer in February is not the business... Just sayin. I've been needing to refresh my make-up drawer for a while now, and I had a chance to do just that, at the IMATS a few weeks ago. Now I'm not going to give you a full on review on each of the products that I bought, but I did want to share with you some of my new favorites. 

Let's start with the face. I'm doomed with extra sensitive skin.. mood swings all the way around. One day it's happy, the next day it's a raging loonatic. For those of you who suffer with the same fate, I'm sure you've heard this numerous times before... mineral make-up is key. I've tried a few different brands before, but my latest obsession is Napoleon Perdis

Australia's biggest make-up brand, Napoleon Perdis, is finally making it's way through the U.S., and I'm loving every bit of it! Their new mineral line suits my skin needs perfectly, and I couldn't be more happier with the results. 

I've been using MAC since I was aloud to wear make-up.. My kit is getting pretty full, yet somehow this company keeps coming out with new things that I absolutely need...

I nearly died when I turned the corner at the IMATS and saw the Bobbi Brown booth. If I didn't die then, than I definitely went to heaven when I started filling my basket and heard the sweet sales lady murmur that everything was 40% off! Are you kidding? Love, love, love it all. And the limited edition Tortoiseshell collection? I meaaaan... does anything else scream "summer" louder?

What are your must haves for summer? Do tell!

Napoleon! He is out makeup king! I don't use anything but NP these days. Especially when it comes to good founsations and powders.

Great reviews! The colors you picked up from MAC are must haves.I use Kid almost every day. I just posted a review on Model in a Bottle that I picked up at IMATS. Super amazing setting spray.
Also, I usually stay away from waterproof mascara, except for bridal clients. But one day in the pool and I got my beloved L'oreal Voluminous in my eyes and I was NOT a happy girl. So I bought the waterproof version and I was incredibly impressed.
