hi welcome to my blog. for today’s post i’m sharing a little everyday summer makeup routine! i personally love a little light makeup for summer so i do this little routine anytime i have plans. also this takes me maybe 7 minutes or less!
before starting my makeup i do skincare and spf. i wash my face every morning with the fresh soy face cleanser and then moisturize with the first aid beauty ultra repair cream. i also go in with spf anytime i’m going anywhere.
next up i apply a little concealer. i mix the clinique even better refresh kinda like foundation/bb cream product with the la colors conceal it concealer on the back of my hand. i like this product combo because it makes it a little bit more natural looking and less likely to get cakey throughout the day. i apply this to any spots and a little under my eyes with a dry sponge. (saw someone do this on the vogue beauty secrets series and i like the results so much better than with the damp sponge) also i would maybe use powder but my skin is pretty dry so i skip this step.
then i go in with blush! i love the cover girl cream blush, i use the shade butterflies which is like a deep mauve red with purple undertones. i apply this to my cheeks and a little over my nose and blend it with a sponge.
for eyebrows i just use a clear brow gel, i’ve been loving the nyx control freak eyebrow gel to just keep them from getting too crazy. lastly, for mascara i usually use the la girl volumatic mascara in black brown. if i’m going to the beach or lake though, i use a waterproof one, covergirl has some really good ones!
sometimes i apply a little lip liner and tinted lip balm too but i always make sure to re-apply spf throughout the day!
i hope you enjoyed this post,
