2017 Summer Make Up Must Haves

It’s been a little while since I’ve aimlessly shopped for make up! Since we’re so close to summer, I couldn’t have picked a better time to do so and of course, share!

1. JACLYN HILL x MORPHE EYE SHADOW PALETTE

Set your alarms, ladies! The much-anticipated Jaclyn Hill x Morphe Eye Shadow Palette is set to be released TODAY June 21 at 8 AM PST here. Have you seen how GORGEOUS this palette is!? The palette consists of 35 shades and according to Jaclyn, will retail for around $38.00 – such a steal! For anyone who doesn’t know, Jaclyn is a professional makeup artist who started at MAC but quickly grew her talent and following on YouTube, averaging millions of views – she’s the real deal.

2. KKW BEAUTY CREME CONTOUR & HIGHLIGHT KITS

If you’re a fan of Kylie Cosmetics, you may want to find another alarm because KKW (Kim Kardashian West) Beauty is also launching TODAY at 9am PST here. Kim is releasing creme contour and highlight kits. She’s shown on her SnapChat that she made sure her bestie, and world famous celebrity make up artist, Mario DeDivanovic had played a large role in approving the formula and color of her cosmetics. Kim basically made creme contour and highlighting famous so, we’re thinking these sets may totally be worth a try!

3. URBAN DECAY NAKED HEAT EYE SHADOW PALETTE

If you’ve loved any of the Urban Decay Naked palettes, something hot is calling your name. The new Urban Decay NAKED Heat palette is everything you need for summer. This beautiful range of fiery neutrals are sure to give you the perfect look. I’ve actually taken a break from the NAKED palettes but this bad boy has brought me back!

4. BECCA x CHRISSY TEIGEN GLOW FACE PALETTE

If the stunning model, mama, chef, and ultimate beauty queen Chrissy Teigen gave you make-up advice, would you take it? Don’t worry, you don’t have to answer that – the answer is obviously yes. Thankfully, Chrissy Teigen paired up with one of the best beauty brands out there, Becca and together, they created the perfect glow face palette for all your summer looks! Each shade featured in this palette blends like a dream and works well on just about any skin tone.

Also!

dry shampooA few posts back, Leigha mentioned her favorite dry shampoo: Batiste. If you can recall, she was more than halfway through her pregnancy, hormonal, and her hair was oiler than ever – so, basically this dry shampoo was a unicorn if it was worthy enough to make her cut of must-haves during this time period. Well, we both still use Batiste (even more now in the warmer months) and recently found out that we weren’t alone in our adoration for Batiste’s Dry Shampoo! Batiste ranked in the top picks of dry shampoos on Reviews.com! Just how good is that? Well, Reviews.com spent 6 weeks researching, testing over 50 formulas and consulting with experienced stylists/beauty industry experts to determine which were the best at delivering fresh hair without a full wash! Check out their full dry shampoo guide here.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide 2017

Are you still searching for the perfect Mother’s Day gift? Whether it’s for your mother, significant other, or in-law, I’ve rounded up a variety of fun and sentimental gifts for mama’s of all ages!

Necklace

  1. NASHELLE Blue Quartz Initial & Heart 14k Gold Fill Disc Necklace – $138

If you’d like to go the traditional route – you can never go wrong with jewelry! Handmade initial discs strung alongside your recipient’s favorite color, birth stone, or, if you’re gifting it to your wife, the birthstone(s) of your little ones is sure to please. I love the quality of jewelry by Nashelle but more importantly, I love their message. For every piece of jewelry sold, Nashelle provides a full meal for a person in need. To date, Nashelle has fed close to a half of million people!

2. To Little Arrows MAMA Trucker Hat – $19.99

For any mama with littles, a hat is a wardrobe essential! Finding a cute, casual hat isn’t as easy as it looks but you’ll absolutely LOVE this one! The trucker style is comfortable, adjustable, and stylish – it will quickly become her go-to when she’s sick and tired of her signature mom bun. Whether she’s taking the  kids to school, making a quick target run, or chasing toddlers at the park, she will love this MAMA hat!

speaker

3. Kate Spade New York Portable Bluetooth Speaker – ON SALE for $17.99 (Originally $59.99)

My favorite thing about spring and summer is outdoor entertaining! We love hosting family and friends during the warmer months and one thing that gets a TON of use is my bluetooth speaker. If you’re on the hunt for a Mother’s Day steal, this one’s for you! Originally $59.99, this adorable Kate Spade Portable Bluetooth Speaker is only $17.99 and comes in a variety of colors and patterns!

4. Rustic Cuff – starts at $38.00

Featured as one of Oprah’s favorites things, Rustic Cuff’s gorgeously bold bracelets are a fun Mother’s Day gift for your favorite trendy mama. Stack them, mix them, or wear them alone – Rustic Cuff has a wide variety of ‘cuffs’ to compliment any mama’s style. I personally love the animal print cuffs paired with the signature charm bracelets!

5. World Market Helena Whitewashed Heart Frame – $9.99

Keep it simple and sweet – EVERY mama loves a pretty frame with a memorable photo! I picked this frame from World Market because it’s super versatile, but also unique. I love that it’s pretty enough to be a shelf statement piece and the heart shape is the perfect touch for Mother’s Day. Also, it’s currently on sale for $7.49!

6. The Created Co. ‘World’s Best Mom’ Diner Mug – $16.00

I can only speak for myself but this may be the most practical and useful Mother’s Day gift out there. Grab the special mom in your life a cute mug so when she’s pouring her fresh cup of survival coffee or tea, she thinks of you. Also, check out this adorable Dog Mom mug! I’ll take one of each!
