This meant to be a video/tutorial but I totally ran out of time. If you would like to see a video, let me know and I’ll do my best to get one up!
The summer months bring a lot of heat and humidity-in Florida it rains half of the day anyway! I’ve come to the realization that less is more in the summer-makeup included! I love getting all dolled up for special occasions, but you might have noticed a slight shift in my everyday makeup wear. I am so busy that I’ve had to cut down on my makeup routine, plus, I didn’t want a heavy makeup mixing with the humidity. This new summer routine takes me a total of 15-20 minutes (or less) and I’m more than likely wearing my hair with a natural wave. All products will be linked in the slide.
Summer Makeup Routine-
First, I always start with a moisturizer, and now more than ever I’m adding in an SPF. I then spritz my skin with this Pixi Glow Mist-let dry. I proceed to add a tinted moisturizer/BB cream-I’m currently using this one from Garnier. I let all of that dry for a moment-I’m usually trying to fix my hair (lately it’s been a bun, ponytail, or natural waves). I then use a contour stick to add a bit of definition on the cheeks, nose and forehead. I’ve just started using this stick by Ulta. I fix my eyebrows with a pencil, nothing major-just making them even. Add a little bit of highlight and blush to the cheeks-I just picked up this highlight and love it! If I’m feeling up to it, I place two-three coats of mascara just to open my eyes. I will typically lightly cover any blemishes at the end, that way I know if I really need to add any or if I can just deal with what I have on. I’ve been using this concealer for any touch ups. At the end, I apply a coat of pink or orange tinted matte lip gloss. I’ve been wearing this shade a lot recently. Just a quick routine for every day wear during the summer!
