We all define beauty in different ways through our skincare, haircare and daily makeup routines. Sometimes it a bright bold lip and cat eye and other times it’s a smokey eye and nude lip combo. For me, my version of beauty always celebrates the art of femininity. From my pretty dress collection and signature soft curls to a relaxing skincare regime and natural makeup looks, femininity is always celebrated and encouraged in my routine. And although this is how I define beauty for myself, I also appreciate how others define beauty for themselves. Beauty is not only about how we look physically but also extends into how we present ourselves and how we respectfully treat others with kindness. 🙂
For summertime, I love a feminine, barely-there makeup look that’s perfect for everyday. A subtle sun-kissed glow and natural look makes me feel most beautiful when the temperatures are high. Today, I’m sharing a handful of my favorite feminine summer beauty essentials that are housed on my vanity 🙂 All of these products are currently available at Walmart and are super affordable! I love that Walmart celebrates individuality and inclusivity with an array of products all in one place. There truly is something for everyone… including me! 🙂
Check out my summer faves below!
I just love the light and airy colors in this pretty eye shadow palette! There are no shortage of pink tones that are both flattering and feminine. The color goes on smooth and can easily be layered to be more or less intense. For an everyday summer look, I typically go for a light neutral on my lid (Curtsy), subtle sheen to highlight my brow bone (Tulle) and a light mauve for the crease (Committed).
This gorgeous palette is perfect summer travel or on-the-go touch ups! Although, it has the most lovely set of nude eyeshadows, I am absolutely smitten over the blush duo! The blush leaves behind the slightest pop of pink for a subtle sun-kissed glow. I usually start off with the darker shade, blend it out and then layer the lighter shade on top. I also love that there are two different palettes available that work with varying skin tones!
A bold cat eye is usually my go-to but when summer rolls around, I forgo the liner and play up my eyes with flirty lashes. The original Voluminous mascara has always one of my favorites but lately, I am loving the Lash Paradise waterproof mascara! Not only are lashes lengthened and voluminous but it’s also waterproof making it the perfect summer secret weapon. This mascara ensures that you’ll have killer lashes all summer long (even at the beach and pool!).
I’m a pink girl through and through and that also trickles down to what I wear on my lips. During the summer, I tend to opt for lighter pinks and rosy hues in moisturizing formulas to get that perfect kissable pout. I got this lip color in Ballerina Shoes and it’s the prettiest soft pink! The formula is creamy and comfortable with a hint of sheen. Plus this lipstick comes in so many other fun summer colors!
The finishing touch to any feminine beauty look is undoubtably a beautiful fragrance. Marc Jacobs Daisy is the quintessential fragrance of summertime… even the bottle gives off the feeling of summer nostalgia! I love the light floral scent of the original and equally love the fruity tones of Daisy Eau So Fresh (they even smell amazing layered together!). And with bottles as gorgeous as these, you’ll want to clear a spot for them on your vanity. 😉
