There are lots of things that make us excited here at Camera Ready: puppies, cupcakes, and glitter to name a few. But there’s nothing like the excitement of opening a box of makeup samples or bringing on a new brand.

Our arms and hands are covered in swatches as we play with the amazing products we’re about to offer you, our loyal customers.

As summer closes in, we’ve received TONS of new items that have us head over heels - some from brands you know and love, others from brands entirely new to Camera Ready.

So without further ado, we welcome you to the first of our Monthly Favorites series. The only place you’ll find a curated list (every month) of the best beauty products from people who know beauty well.

Ready to discover what we’re loving this month?

We thought you’d never ask!



Hum Nutrition

The brand’s tagline reads “beauty starts from within,” and we couldn’t agree more! Hum’s collection of dietary supplements help support healthy hair, strong nails, and glowing skin. Even the packaging is beautiful.

We had a hard time narrowing down our favorites from the seven types of vegetarian-friendly tablets, but two topped our list. If you struggle with getting a good night’s rest, Beauty zzZz will promote more restful sleep and overall health. If young, healthy skin is what you’re after, Collagen Love has the perfect blend of Collagen I, II and III to restore, protect and firm the skin.


Brush Works

This brand carries a vegan-leather makeup organizer/travel case called the Artist Easel Pro, and if you don’t have one yet, you need one.

Perfect for both makeup artists and makeup enthusiasts, the case features sturdy snap-together straps and a full zip enclosure to keep up to 55 of your favorite brushes upright and secure on the go.


Loving Tan

This collection of tanning mousses, bronzing creams, and body makeup is the perfect remedy for pale, pasty skin. All of Loving Tan’s formulas are easy to use and streak-free, but we’re especially loving the Deluxe Bronzing Mousse, which gives the look of a natural tan in just minutes. Can you hear us singing, “Hallelujah!”

Available in three shades - Medium, Dark & Ultra Dark - the formula provides immediate color that develops into a deeper tan over time. But the best part? It dries quickly and smells AMAZING.


KatKit Road

When it comes to professional makeup organization, KatKit Road is the cream of the crop. We recently started carrying four of their very best bags, and we are obsessed.

For those who travel often, the KatKit Aircraft is the perfect lightweight case for hairdressers, makeup artists, and beauty lovers. Three large mesh pockets nestled in the clear bag keep your products organized and easy to find.

When you’ve reached your final destination, the case opens up flat so you can easily unpack or grab your beauty essentials.


Suva Beauty

The colors. The formulas. The packaging. We love the on-trend vibes that SUVA Beauty delivers.

While many of their products wouldn’t fall under the everyday-use category, the SUVA Beauty Neutral Necessity Palette offers an all-in-one solution for those who seek an easy transition from a day to evening look.

The palette includes eight different matte butter shadows with vibrant pigmentation to build a classic everyday look that can be spruced up for dinner in the evening.


Besame Cosmetics

Besame’s vibrant, head-turning lipsticks are nothing short of perfection, especially the 1920 Besame Red, which is an actual color replication of the iconic red lip made famous in - you guessed it - the 1920s.

The semi-matte finish provides full coverage with just one coat. Not to mention, the formula is enriched with Vitamin C and aloe to keep your lips moisturized and healthy.



Becca Summer Essentials

We love Becca’s simple, neutral products because they’re easy to wear and beautiful on the skin. Their new Summer Essentials line is no exception.

Choose from four new shades in their Shimmering Skin Perfector collection (Prosecco Pop, Rose Quartz, Prismatic Amethyst and Chocolate Geode). The velvety smooth powder applies much like a cream, and the results are naturally luminous.

We’re also loving Becca’s new Gradient Sunlit Bronzers, which come in two shades (Sunrise or Sunset). Apply for a multi-dimensional bronze glow. These products are limited-edition, so grab yours while they’re available.


Stila Duo Chrome Eyeshadows

If you’ve never given glittery, liquid eyeshadows a chance, now is the perfect time to try with Stila’s latest duo chrome shades.

Luminous Fairy Tale, rose-gold Enchantress, and golden Perlina are three of the line’s latest shades that beauty lovers are raving about. These sparkly eyeshadows create a pearlescent, holographic effect.


Spectrum Pearly Queen

These full-size makeup brushes are a shorter, travel-friendly version of the brand’s popular Bomb Shell collection, wrapped in a stunning holographic Oyster Roll with a magnetic shell enclosure. The rose gold detailing and sky blue lining are breathtaking.

Send help, because we can’t stop staring!


The Balm “Take Home The Bronze”

Your contouring dreams have come true thanks to The Balm’s Take Home the Bronze collection of standout bronzing powders.

No orange undertones, just a flawless golden glow, is what you’ll be left with after applying. There isn’t anything more to say except try one of their three shades for perfect, summer-ready skin.


BeautyBlender BBF Forever

The same great beautyblender® sponges we’ve all come to love are now available in the adorable, heart-shaped BBF Kit (Beauty’s Best Friend). A great gift for makeup loving friends, the kit comes with two beautyblender® makeup sponges and blendercleanser® samples. It’s so cute we can’t handle it!


Koh Gen Do Simple Luxury

We received several new arrivals from the Koh Gen Do luxury makeup collection, and we’re especially loving two very different, but very necessary products: the Maifanshi Mineral Liquid Eyeliner and the Maifanshi Makeup Color Bases.

The high-performance priming Color Bases are lighter than ever before and help illuminate the skin before applying foundation. Choose from Green, Pearl White, Yellow or Lavender-Pink depending on your skin tone.

Our other favorite, the Mineral Liquid Eyeliner, gives an ultra-pigmented and glossy definition that won’t smudge, streak or fade. It’s also waterproof! Go swimming or watch a tear-jerking chick flick while looking flawless the whole time through.

That’s a wrap, beauty lovers! Give a few (or all) of these amazing products a try, and let us know what you think. And be sure to join theCREW Rewards Program to earn points (and cash!) towards any Camera Ready products.
