My Go To Summer Look

As a huge beauty junkie but I will be honest summer is my least favorite time of the year to do my makeup. I have tried many things to make my makeup last during the summer heat and I feel like I have finally found a combination that works for me. To start off I have combination skin my t-zone tends to get very oily. In order for any makeup to look good on the skin you have to make sure you have a good skin care routine that way your skin looks it’s best. These items have been tested out thoroughly so far this summer.

I am currently obsessed with the Dior Diorskin Forever Undercover 24-Hour Full Coverage Water-Based Foundation. This foundation is so good and full coverage. It truly lasts all day and I swear the longer you have it on the better it looks. I make sure I always prime my face I am currently using this Estee Lauder The Mattifier Shine Control Perfecting Primer + Finish –. A very important step for your foundation to last is to set your face with a powder. I am currently loving PEACH PERFECT MATTIFYING SETTING POWDER. This powder makes you look flawless. This powder is amazing especially for the under eye area it doesn’t make the concealer crease. The PEACH MIST MATTIFYING SETTING SPRAY is a must! I have been completely obsessed with this setting spray you just have to make sure you really shake it very well. This setting spray makes you truly matte. It makes your makeup last a lot longer. The last picture is of me after having my makeup on for a solid 10 hours. This has truly been my must haves this summer especially if I want to stay matte in this Southern California heat.

Universal Thread Clothing Line Review

I have been anxiously awaiting this clothing line! I love the style and the affordability it has! I love that Target has genuinely stepped up their game with clothing. I was going to wait to purchase it online but when I walked into Target the other day they were setting it all up and I was able to get some great pieces!

Women’s Tie Front Button Down Shirt – Universal Thread™ $19.99

I love this top! I think its so necessary to have a good white to this one ties in the front and has the longer back. I feel like its very flattering and you can dress it up or dress it down.

Women’s Tunic Pullover – Universal Thread™ $24.99 

I love this tunic but I do think that this top looks a lot more flattering in person. The material is so high quality and I feel like something similar in department stores retails for over 50 dollars so this is such a great buy!

Women’s Freeborn Denim Jacket – Universal Thread™ Light Wash $29.99

Jersey-Knit Shift Dress for Women

If you get anything from this collection get this jean jacket! It has that perfect worn in feel, the color is amazing and the fit is great! It is super flattering and its the perfect piece for spring. This jacket is so amazing! The dress is not from Target but I will also link it.

Women’s Railroad Jacket – Universal Thread™ Light Wash $29.99

This is such a nice addition to your spring wardrobe the only thing is this jacket is way oversized I am actually wearing a size xs and I am a medium in all my clothes.

Women’s Mid-Rise Destructed Skinny Jeans – Universal Thread™ Light Wash $27.99

The jeans had a very good stretchy fit and they are. great quality! Unfortunately I had to get a size bigger than what I usually wear because they were out of stock and they didn’t fit me correctly I am hoping to order my correct size online. Just for reference I am a true size 8 these pants in the picture are a size 10.
