Hey everyone! Today I’m going to be sharing my summer beauty routine with you all! It’s 2017 now, and there may already be a gazillion beauty routines already published, but I think everyone’s is different, so without further ado, here is mine!
It’s summer, and here in Missouri, it’s hot. 100 degrees every day. Like miserable, sweaty, draining, give me air conditioning or give me death kind of weather! So the last thing I want my summer beauty routine to consist of is caking on tons of makeup! I like to keep my makeup very light and airy. That means no foundation, no bronzer, no blush (i’ll swipe a little of my lip color on my cheeks and blend it in if i’m really feeling it) no eyeliner, no highlighter, brow products, eye shadow, etc. My summer beauty routine is very simple and quick.
The first thing I do is apply my Cover Girl Clean Matte BB cream (true story, I bought this because of an ad I kept seeing on youtube!) and my Clinique “all about eyes” under eye cream
I love this stuff. And while it isn’t necessarily my “favorite” BB cream ever, I still use it every single day and it works great!
Next is concealer. I use the Maybelline SuperStay Better Skin concealer (concealer pictured 2nd to the right)
I’m not claiming to be a beauty expert whose tried hundreds of concealers, but this is by far my FAVORITE concealer!! I love this concealer so much, it does such a great job of covering up any redness, blemishes/acne, and my dreadful under eye circles! I don’t know what I would do without this concealer, it is absolute perfection, isn’t at all “cakey” and is very reasonably priced (Around $6) So I highly recommend it.
Next is press powder. I use the “Loreal Paris True Match Super Bendable Powder”
This is the only press powder I’ve ever tried, but I like it so far. It goes on nicely, blends well, stays on all day, and keeps my face from being shiny. I’m sure I would have better results with something from Sephora, but for a drug store product, I’d say it works fairly well, and is a good value for the price.
Next up: Curling my lashes, and applying mascara!
I use my elf eyelash curler (It was cheap and I didn’t want to pay a lot of money for this.) and it works great! My mascara is from physician’s formula. It is the only makeup product I own that is organic! I love this mascara for summer, bc it stays on, even when you sweat! I will say that if you are looking for tons of length, this might not suit your needs. However this one has a great brush, and I NEVER get clumps with this mascara, it goes on very smoothly and evenly and I love it!
Finally, I apply some tinted lip balm. I use “Baby Lips” in the color “cherry me” I love how the color looks. Just so you’re aware, this lip tint doesn’t stay on for more than a few hours without needing to be reapplied, but other than that it works great!
That’s my summer beauty routine. Do you have any summer must haves? Let me know in the comments below!
