Trending Tuesday - Florals and Summer Beauty

It's time for Trending Tuesday! There are so many great summer trends out there, that it's hard to focus on just a few! So, I went with the ones that apply most to me right now, and the ones that I am loving! 
One thing about summer - it gets hot. And when you're hot, you sweat. When you sweat, you can feel like your makeup is sweating and molting off of your face. It is so important to me to have a light makeup look with a makeup-less feel; and still being able to wear the makeup without it caking up on my face. 
Beauty Products for a Summer, Makeup Free Look
BareMinerals ---> HERE
St. Ives ---> HERE
Sonia Kashuk ---> HERE
L'Oreal ---> HERE   
These products will help you feel beautiful without feeling shiny and gross!
BareMinerals:  BareMinerals makes a great pure brightening serum foundation that is supposed to have a light and airy feel that is great for summer. I have had great success with their makeup before, and this one is next on my list!
St. Ives Fresh Spray On Lotion: This stuff definitely works! This sprays on so easily, and doesn't leave that wet feel that has to air dry. This works great for me on the go when I am in a hurry too!
Sonia Kashuk Luminosity Glow Powder: This powder captures light and helps your skin have a healthy glow that is perfect for summer. Sonia never disappoints!
L'Oreal True Match Mineral Pressed Powder: This product is oil free and fights shine for 16 hours! This would be perfect for hot summer days where this is your worry!
Floral Summer Trends
Elephant tank: Windsor ---> HERE
Floral crop top: Forever 21 ---> HERE
Floral Dress: eShakti ---> HERE 

My other favorite thing trending this summer is floral prints! They are so fun and colorful, and are everywhere! These are just 3 of my favorite pieces that I found - I am pretty sure that elephant tank needs to make its way into my closet ASAP. Windsor is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to shop new trends. 
Forever 21's crop top options are huge - this isn't a favorite trend of mine to wear alone, but under a tank top or with a high waisted skirt would be just so cute!
There are many floral and other print options at eShakti, especially if you are looking for longer hemlines that are more modest. These would be perfect for weddings!

What are your favorite trends for Trending Tuesday?!


  1. I love spray on lotion but didn't know St. Ive's had one - must find that one!! Let me know your thoughts on Bare Skin when you get it - I've heard mixed reviews!!

  2. The BareMinerals serum foundation is literally The Best! I went to get matched this weekend and I am so obsessed with it. It goes on very smoothly and stays very well throughout the day. It also feels like you have nothing on. You must go get matched!! I haven't even thought of using any of my other foundations.

    Would you suggest the serum over the bareminerals powder? I've been a powder user for years!
