It’s my BIRTHDAY and I’ll go to the BEACH if I want to!

5 Comments

Whoa… I feel like I have been M.I.A. from the blogosphere – gosh, sometimes having a job really gets in the way of blogging!

Well, guess what, I’m getting old – yeah, it’s my birthday very soon and one of my presents to myself is a mini-vacation to the BEACH!! So excited, haven’t been in a few years, plus I’m actually taking some vacation days from work! I haven’t taken any vacation days, whatsoever, since I have been working at my current job.

I’m not sure how the company will survive without me, BUT I don’t care ’cause I’ll be chillin’ at the beach!

So, since I’m obviously a make-up junkie, I thought I’d share some of the things I’ll be taking with me.

SKIN:

Neutrogena Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 50

Neutrogena SPF 15 Lip Moisturizer

MAC FIX+ Spray

Great for giving your skin a moisture boost!

MAKE-UP:

Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 in “Bisque” 

Great coverage and so light on the skin! Love it.

Neutrogena 3 in 1 concealer in “Buff 09” 

Lightweight concealer + Eye cream + SPF 20 = Awesomeness!

NARS Bronzer in “Laguna”

Check out my love and tips for bronzer here!

Tarte Matte Waterproof Bronzer in “Park Ave Princess”

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in “Medium”

MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish  in “Whisper of Gilt”

MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in “Glorify”

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24hr Eyeshadow in “45 Bold Gold”

Stays put forever!! Wear it sheer or layer it up for gold painted lids! Use it subtlety on other areas to highlight and brighten.

MAC Paint Pot in “Rubenesque”

Who doesn’t love a MAC paint pot and this one is perfect for that bronzed beach look!

Top: MAC Powerpoint Eye Pencil in “Buried Treasure”

A black-brown with gold shimmer and serious staying power. Hello waterproof!

Bottom: Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in “Junkie”

Great way to add a pop of color at the beach without going heavy on the make-up! Waterproof!

Korres Lip Butter in “Mango” 

Great for keeping your lips soft and hydrated, with the perfect flush of coral color!

Revlon Just Bitten Lip Stain and Balm in “Flame”

Long-lasting color, plus a balm – perfect for sunny beach days.

FRAGRANCE:

 Jo Malone Wild Bluebell 

Keep it light and fresh! Want more on Wild Bluebell?

 HAIR:

Tresemme Climate Protection Finishing Spray

For all hair types, won’t leave white residue in your hair, works against humidity, static, wind and has a UV blocker!

SUNBLOCK!!

 

 Neutrogena Pure & Free Baby Faces SPF 50 Sunblock

Oil free, waterproof, sweatproof, fragrance free, tear free, hypoallergenic – if its good for a baby’s face its good for mine!

Neutrogena Fresh Cooling  Body Mist Sunblock SPF 45

Amazing feeling on the skin in hot weather! It’s also non-greasy and waterproof, also non-comedogenic (won’t clog your pores).

Neutrogena Ultimate Sport Sunblock Spray SPF 100

Ultra sweatproof, waterproof, non-greasy, non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores), oil free! Resists wear-off from friction, activities, sweat and water! Of course, you need to reapply throughout the day.

 So excited for my mini-vacation!!! Did I mention it was going to be PERFECT weather😀

  1. So jealous that it’s beach weather for you!! It’s been in the 50s here all week😦

    • Hahaha – one good thing about TX weather – don’t have to worry about snow in April! Wish you could go with me:/

      • Yea, I’d say we don’t either, but who freaking knows this year. We had 70s in June, snow in October and now 40s and 50s in late April. But I wish I could go with you too! Some day, I’ll have a real job and can use my real money from my real job to for real come visit you!

  2. Yay for vacations! You are definitely prepared and I’m sure will be looking good. Perfect makeup for the beach!
