June 2016: Beauty Favorites

The Beverly Hills highlighter from
OFRA Cosmetics, one of my favorites for
this month.
Although last month Summer was officially near, now it is officially here. And what better way to spring into the hottest season of the year than with the hottest beauty products of the month. With everything from the latest and greatest in makeup to the most significant staples of skin care and much more, my favorites for the month of June feature some of the hottest holy grails in all of beauty. So, what are they? What are my favorite beauty products for the month of June?

Starting off my favorites this month with the Too Faced Lip Injection Glossy. This lip product plumps your lips in an unique way. Available in six unique shades, this lip product is infused with an array of botanical ingredients including avocado, castor and even jojoba oil. The hydration is intensified as the color and shine are fabulous. Go big and go bold or go home. Available at Too Faced Cosmetics for $22, this is one of the best lip plumping glosses you will ever get a hold of.

OFRA Cosmetics recently launched a new highlighter called the Beverly Hills Highlighter. I am truly loving this highlighter as it is made up of five luminous shimmer slices consisting of golden bronzer, cool pink, pearly white, neutral shimmer and pinky-peach. As every highlighter delivers a different radiance, you can use them individually or together. I enjoy this luminizer because it is pigmented to perfection, giving you a true color pay-off. Plus, it s convenient, as you get five shades in a round compact. You can find this highlighter at OFRA Cosmetics for under $40.

When it comes to brows, I am very obsessed with quite a few products right now. One product; however, stands out. What is it? It's the Benefit BROWVO! Conditioning Eyebrow Primer. Infused with an array of ingredients including hydrolyzed soy protein, olive and jojoba oil, this product features a soft-touch applicator and works as both a serum and a primer. As it works to extend the wear of your eyebrow product, it also works to promote thicker brows. Amazing right? You can snag this essential at Benefit Cosmetics for $28.

I have tried an array of foundations. Some I loved, others I hated and some I contemplated and debated whether or not I wanted to use them again. I have tried quite a few luxury foundations and although I enjoyed some, others not so much. Recently, I discovered La Prairie's Skin Caviar Concealer + Foundation. This dynamic duo features SPF 15 and an unique emulsion blend that delivers natural looking coverage while enhancing the wear of your makeup. Available at Nordstrom for $220, if you are searching for a luxurious foundation that supports your skin's elasticity, you are going to love this one.

Did you ever have that one makeup brush that you always find yourself picking up every single morning? That one makeup applicator that has improved your makeup routine? About a year ago I discovered the Artis Fluenta Oval 8 Brush and have been addicted to it ever since. Made up of hundreds of thousands of fibers, this oval shaped gem is a true treasure to every makeup junkie and beauty lover. Available at Neiman Marcus for $80, this brush has been consistent through every single application, making me appreciate picking it up everyday. As much as I love my makeup brushes, right now I am really love this one.

When I first discovered the Liquid Gold Peptides serum from Gavee Gold, my obsession with this product started virtually instantaneously. The smell of apples was the first thing I noticed. As every Gavee Gold essential is infused with purified 24 karat liquid gold, my love for this product grew when I put it on my face. Not only does this product improve skin radiance and boost luminosity (as it did with mine), it hydrates and nourishes the skin. Everything in this product is natural and the best part is, this brightening serum fights oxidative stressors including DNA damage. Available at Gavee Gold for $155, no matter what skin type you have, this is one of the best serums you will ever use.

I have tried quite a few night creams this year that I find myself loving; however, since discovering the EMK Beverly Hills Supra Face Cream, I always find myself reaching for that one the most. Not only does this moisturizer hydrate the skin, it treats it too while you sleep. It works to brighten and restore your skin as well as firm and plump it. Infused with a distinctive time-release delivery system and triple action firming technology, this face cream is packed with a plethora of amino acids that work together to create real results. Available at EMK Beverly Hills for $142, this is one of my favorite beauty products right now.

Another favorite for this month is a beauty essential I discovered last year. It is the Tata Harper Beautifying Face Oil. I always find myself reaching for this product every single day and evening. Infused with an array of organic ingredients such as vegetable squalane, argan oil, calendula extract, and more, this powerful essential oil blend hydrates your skin while restoring and renewing your skin's natural acid mantle. No matter what your skin type is and what skin issue you may have, this face oil works to treat it. Available for under $50 at Tata Harper, this fabulous filler-free literally made my skin clear up and improved my skin's texture by restoring my skin's natural acid mantle and promoting cell turnover and production. As June is acne awareness month, I wanted to share this with you.

Some of the greatest beauty essentials are those rare gems that work from the inside, out. One of those beauty essentials is definitely a true favorite of mine for the month of June, the NEOCELL Glow Matrix supplement. Fortified with ceramides and an unique blend of healthy ingredients including hyaluronic acid, lutein and coconut water powder, this incredible supplement delivers moisture and elasticity to your skin in just two weeks. Packed with vitamins A, B2, B6, C, D3, E, and K2 among others, this supplement works to prevent, correct and even repair free radicals and stressors revealing the ultimate glow. NEOCELL is available at your nearest mass nutrition retailer including GNCBuy.com, the Vitamin Shoppe and Whole Foods.

Like our skin, our hair is a product of our environment. Over the years, I have discovered that my hair needs some restoration and is in need of hair health. I have used products that helped my hair. One of my latest discoveries is the StriVectin Ultimate Restore line. This line includes both a shampoo and conditioner as well as a deep repair mask and the densifying foaming treatment. As my hair has been thinning, this system has improved my hair immensely. I feel as if my hair feels and looks thicker, as it looks shiny and feels smoother too. Who knew? You can find these basic hair essentials at StriVectin your nearest retailer.

I have been a vegetarian for many years and just recently, I've discovered quite a few protein supplements I enjoy. One of my favorites this month is more of a health and wellness sort of favorite rather than a beauty favorite. It is the Nature's Food Plant-Based Fit Protein. With 28 grams of protein, 160 calories, 6 grams of fiber and 2 grams of fat per serving, this brown rice-based protein is free of preservatives, artificial ingredients, and GMO's and includes an essential amino acid blend that supports every lifestyle. And because this protein is 100% plant-based, it is vegan and does not include any synthetic flavors or dyes as well as gluten, soy or dairy. Nature's Food is available exclusively at GNC and Lucky Vitamin.

And since we are on the subject of plant-based, I have to admit that I am really enjoying the Earth Balance Olive Oil Spread. Made up of extra virgin olive oil, this vegan butter is free of lactose, gluten, casein and GMO's. It also contains 0 trans fat and is only made up of expeller-pressed oils. On top of that, it does not contain soy and contains an unique blend of flax oils. Whether you are looking to spread, fry, saute, steam, bake, and mix this alternative makes life in the kitchen that much better. Available at your nearest mass grocer, this Earth Balance addition is one of my favorites for the month of June.

These are my favorites for the month of June. What are your's? #BeautyFavorites
