Just because the stores shelves are stocked with fall beauty hauls and Halloween must-haves, I’m still hanging on to every bit of summer. (Never surrender!) That means, I’m doing all I can to soak up some fun in the sun and keep that glow going as long as possible.

August brought me one last birthday celebration (yes, my birthday was in July!) but I never like to miss an opportunity to get glammed up and hit the dance floor…on a Sunday afternoon! By the way, I scored that vintage Dolce & Gabbana dress on Mercari for a fraction of the price. I am officially in my ‘won’t pay retail for designer clothing’ era.

As we’re all gearing up for Labor Day weekend and one last summer hurrah, here’s what I am currently loving for my skin, nails, lashes, and more…

Shop my late-summer must-have’s

European Wax Center Summer Oasis Travel Kit ($25)

Within this stylish straw clutch are the best beauty must-haves to take with you on your weekend whisk away. Travel-sized Body Polish and Shimmer Body Oil, in the Summer Oasis scent serves the ultimate rose gold shimmer to leave skin your skin radiant and glowing.

JOAH Beauty COLOR HAUL EYESHADOW PALETTE in ‘Smokeshow’ ($11.99)

Smokey meets icy in a blend of buildable, hard-to-forget hues that last.  Sweep on these shimmering shades and say hello, dancing queen vibes!

Thrive Causemetics Infinity Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner Pen ($22)

This bold-pigment liquid eyeliner glides on seamlessly, dries quickly and won’t smudge or fade all day (and night!) I’m seriously obsessed.


These one-step lashes look sensational every single time I pop them on, and the best part: there’s no glue needed to apply. No mess, no mistakes, no kidding!  

KISS GEL FANTASY JELLY NAILS in ‘Feel My Rhythm’ ($8.99)

Gel Fantasy Jelly ready-to-wear false gel nails have a translucent “jelly” high shine finish that looks as smooth as glass, with a high-volume arch like salon sculpted false nails. Literally takes minutes to apply and lasts up to a week.

MDAiRE Regenerative ECM Eye Complex ($122)

I recently discovered this science-backed skincare brand created by Stefani Kappel MD, a board certified, double fellowship trained Dermatologist and Mohs Micrographic Surgeon and I am truly impressed. This high-end eye treatment is formulated with a peptide complex that helps reduce inflammation, puffiness, and dark circles and niacinamide, to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Lip Blur in ‘Rose Blur’ ($35)

Want flawless, rosy lips with a silky finish that lasts all day? Yes, please! This matte-meets-moisture formula stay put and stays perfect no matter how my margaritas you sip. Quite impressive!

KORRES Eau de Toilette Vanilla Freesia ($54)

Perfect to wear on its own or layered with your favorite body care, this elevated skin freshener that lasts all day, making it the perfect summer scent.


Great Lakes Wellness DAILY BEAUTY COLLAGEN PEPTIDES ($27.99)

This yummy Raspberry Lemonade Collagen dissolves quickly into liquids to help you beautify from the inside out. It’s been part of my everyday routine for the last month and I have noticed such an amazing difference in my skin.
