Monthly Favorites: June 2013

Hey, friends! It's the end of June, and you know what that means! I don't have too many monthly favorites this month, since I've been going "au naturale" most days, and other days I've only been doing a simple routine (see my current routine here and here). The majority of products I've loved this month are ones that I've loved for many months. I've been quite busy with an internship amongst other things so I haven't had too much time to experiment with new products. I won't go too much into detail with the repeated products, just because you guys are probably sick of hearing me talk about them. :)

My Current Makeup Routine, Part Two: Eye and Lips

Hey, friends! I'm back today with part two of my current makeup routine. Before I get into everything, I'd just like to apologize for the decreased frequency in blog posts for the next couple of weeks. I'm doing a really grueling internship from now until the end of July, so posts won't come as often as they usually do (I started Monday, so already posts have slowed down). I promise you, there will be at least one post a week. I just wanted you all to know that I'm not going anywhere--I'm just really busy!

If you didn't see Part One (my everyday face makeup), you can click here.

(Not So) Wordless Wednesday: #1

Hey, friends! Today is something quite different than the usual. College Beauty Buff is now part of a blog hop, meaning that every Wednesday for the next few Wednesdays, I will be writing a different kind of blog post. I thought this one would be really fun, since it's a break from the usual block of text I write on here. This blog hop, "Wordless Wednesday," mainly relies on pictures to tell a short story, with the occasional caption for clarity. (And bunch of my Her Campus girls are involved in this, too!) Anyway, I think this will be a fun way for us to get to know each other, so feel free to post some of your favorite photos in the comments below!

Without further adieu, here is my Not So Wordless Wednesday!

My Current Makeup Routine, Part One: Face

Hi, everyone! Today I thought it would be fun to try something new. I thought I'd tell you all about what my go-to makeup routine has been lately. Currently, I'm really into a "no-makeup makeup look," just looking really natural for summer. I feel like wearing a lot of makeup once it gets hot out is not only uncomfortable but inconvenient, and maybe even a little fake looking. Makeup always looks a little unreal in the scrutiny of the sun, but that's just me.

I split this post into two parts because it got so long (and you guys know how much I like to talk). So, here is part one. This is all of my face makeup (BB cream, concealer, powder, bronzer, etc. ) and then part two will have eyes and lips!

Ipsy Glam Bag: June 2013 Review

Hey, everyone! It's that time of the month again (no, not THAT time of the month!) so I'd like to show you what I got in my Ipsy Glam Bag this month!

Ipsy? What's That? - For those who don't know, Ipsy is a monthly beauty subscription service that provides you with 4-5 products (mostly makeup, but sometimes hair/skincare as well) that are either deluxe sample-sized or full-sized. It's been pretty hit-or-miss for me lately, but if you decide to sign up, I would greatly appreciate it if you did so via my referral link.

Sample Review: Korres Wild Rose Moisturizer

Hey, friends! I've been trying to use up some of the samples I have lying around (I'm a freebie hoarder, it's kind of a problem), and I just finished up a packet of the Korres Wild Rose 24-Hour Moisturizing and Brightening Creme. So, I thought I would share what I thought with you!

Sammi's Mani: Nailtini Nail Lacquer in Frappe

Hi, everyone! These kind of posts are like a "here's what my nails are painted like right now" and a nail polish review in one, so I'll be talking about the formulation of the products I used to achieve the look. Today's manicure is really simple, but I still wanted to share it with you. For this week's manicure, I used my Nailtini Nail Lacquer in Frappe that I received in an Ipsy bag months back. If you're interested in learning more about Ipsy and their monthly beauty subscription service, you can see what I received in May's Glam Bag here.
