10 Beauty Products You Need to Try for Summer 2019
10 Beauty Products to try in 2019

As a blogger for the past 5 years, I’ve been so lucky to be able to try so many new products, especially in beauty. Lately I’ve tried some really amazing stuff in the beauty department, and there’s a handful that I wanted to include in a round up for some “must trys” as we’re heading into the warmer months.

Below find 10 beauty products to try right now.

Here wearing Chanel’s eyebrow pencil, Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner, and Charlotte TIlbury’s Magic Away concealer.

La Mer The Concentrate

1) La Mer The Concentrate

Yes, it’s pricey, but this stuff really lives up to the hype. I’ve adapted to using it every morning under my makeup routine as it gives my skin an added boost of moisture with a matte finish that’s perfect under foundation or tinted moisturizer. I would recommend for all skin types - and a little goes a long way, so you can use a bottle for up to a year!

Salt By Hendrix face glow illuminator highlighter

2) Salt by Hendrix Illuminate Facial Glow Highlighter

This brand is completely clean and this highlighter is made from a base of coconut oil, making it great for dry skin. Gives you moisture and a subtle glow without looking too shiny. A little also goes a long way here! My favorite shade is “showstopper” , the perfect golden glow.

Sulwhasoo essential Lip Serum Stick blossom Coral

3) Sulwhasoo Essential Lip Serum Stick

This is the lip product I never knew I needed but now I can’t live without. It’s a lipstick, gloss, and hydrating serum all in one. It has such a pretty sheer color you can use any time even if you’re not wearing makeup and I take it every where with me! A must for the summer when you just want to sport a tan and a little pop of color on your lips. My favorite shade is #5, blossom coral!

Mamonde Rose Water Toner

4) Mamonde Hydrating Beauty Rose Water

I have dry and sensitive skin so I’ve never been huge into toners because they always feel drying. This product changed my mind about that. This rose water not only is great as a toner but also adds moisture to your face and is awesome before you use your serums / moisturizers! It also smells amazing, like roses because it’s 90% comprised of organic rose water from damask roses.

Kat Von D Tattoo Liner black

5) Kat Von D Tattoo Liner - Trooper Black

This is my ride or die favorite black liquid liner for the perfect cat eye. I recently strayed and tried some others which made me wonder why I would even try to find a new liquid eyeliner. So many eyeliners give me full blown allergic reactions and this one does not. It goes on black and the applicator is precise. It’s also quite affordable. 10/10 if you’re looking for a new super black liner! It’s also Vegan and cruelty free. I’m wearing it in the photo above!

eve lom rescue mask

6) Eve Lom Rescue Mask

If you follow me on Instagram and ever watch my stories, you know I have mentioned this mask A LOT, lol. I discovered this mask over the holidays and have been using it ever since. It’s a one stop shop when your skin just isn’t looking it’s best self. Helps minimize pores, detox your skin, promotes radiance, I could go on and on. The only downside is it kind of smells strong / weird, but since it works so well it’s definitely something I can get past. A must try!

Chanel Crayon Sourcils #10

7) Chanel Beauté Crayon Sourcils

This eyebrow pencil is my go-to, and in the summer your brows play an important part of your face if you’re going for a more stripped down look. It has a wax-like texture which is great for shaping, and it’s really a one stop shop for your brows. I usually use/ wear it alone, or with Glossier’s boy brow when I want to do a bolder brow. Color #10 is epic for blondes and one pencil lasts at least 4-6 months even using it every day. I never leave home without this.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Concealer

8) Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Concealer

I’m pretty obsessed with everything Charlotte Tilbury lately, and I LOVE this concealer. It has a super cool applicator and just works so well at exact application, doesn’t fall into creases easily, blends amazing with other makeup, and gives your face an overall flawless appearance.

Elemis Pro Collagen oxygenating night cream

9) Elemis Pro Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream

This night cream is the bomb. I love layering it with my serums and notice a difference in my skin when I’m not using it. It’s certified natural, smells great, and if you need a new night time moisturizer highly recommend giving this one a go.

Cover FX Power Play Foundation

10) Cover FX Power Play Foundation

This foundation is full coverage but doesn’t feel heavy on your face. It has a matte finish which layers great over your moisturizers and serums and sets a great base for when you’re doing a full face of makeup. It also comes in over 30+ shades which is amazing! Cover FX also makes booster drops you can add to this for added benefits. I use the antioxident one for a vitamin boost! If you’re similar skin to me and wondering what shade, I’m a shade G30. It’s also certified clean so you can trust wearing it all day, which is great.

Hope this is helpful if you’re looking to try some new beauty goods in the next few months and you find something new to be a fan of! Let me know if you do try or purchase any of these what you think! I’d love to hear your thoughts as well!

Where to Get the Best Facial in L.A. : BeautySkinGlow
Beauty Skin Glow blog // the style sauce

Let’s start this off by saying I haven’t gotten a facial in a year. I KNOW that’s bad but I just haven’t found anyone I really like and I usually do tons of treatments at home anyhow. That being said, Los Angeles is known for a few things, and beauty treatments is one of them. You’d be hard-pressed to find a city that has the extensive offerings of as many stay-young-for-freaking-ever treatments that L.A. hosts. All that aside, I’ve lived in L.A. for 11 years and I’ve tried a bevy of facials, but never really found my favorite person.  Insert Gayle Miller. As an aesthetician for the past almost 20 years, she’s no beginner at the skincare game. I recently went in for a treatment with her that totally changed my idea of what a facial even is. In the past it’s always been painful (ugh, extractions), somewhat stressful (thoughts like am I going to break out come to mind), and even akin to going to the Dr.’s office on levels of things I should do, but don’t really want to do – for reasons mentioned above.

That being said, I’m SO glad that I found Gayle because her facials are none of those things.

 

What Gayle does best is custom facials. She’ll examine your face, and then gauge what your skin needs. After she’s assessed your skin, she then will start to work her magic. To begin, she gave me a small facial/ scalp massage, and then wrapped my face with a hot steam towel to open the pores. My facial consisted first of a Vitamin C peel, then was followed by a microdermabrasion with a diamond-tipped sucking machine that did all the work of extractions without any of the discomfort. These extractions actually made my skin feel good. After my “extractions” that didn’t feel anything like extractions, she saved the best for last. At the end of my facial, she blasted me with an oxygen machine which felt incredible. It felt like my pores were literally being filled up with water and made my skin feel uber hydrated and dewy. I loved this machine so much I literally asked her where I could buy one! (I’ll let you know if I actually find one because it’s so amazing)  

 

The bottom line for BeautySkinGlow, is that when I walked into her space I felt immediately relaxed, and I left feeling that way and with glowing skin, too. Yes, I will even drive to the Valley to get a facial when it’s a really good one, and she’s not expensive, either. If you’re in the Los Angeles area, go see her and your skin will thank you for it.

Right after my facial - my skin was literally glowing from the oxygen.
