My Everyday Summer Makeup
Now I know what you're thinking: this makeup looks just like the ones I've previously posted. I hate to break it to you all, but I'm a creature of habit. After realizing how well my skin had adapted to certain products, I stopped buying new beauty bits. The only experimenting I do is with lip products and even the one I'm wearing is an old rediscovery! I start off by applying a large dose of the Makeup Forever Step 1 Mattifying Primer to ensure that my face won't melt off in this Hawaiʻi heat. Next up, I use my all-time favorite base product: the Laura Mercier Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer in Ochre. This tint is extremely lightweight but evens out my skin with a healthy finish. I cover my spots and under eye circles with the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard, which has the most beautiful coverage without going cakey. To set my face, I apply a light dusting of the Bare Minerals Mineral Veil in Translucent- a newer staple in my makeup bag. This powder doesn't sit on the skin and it keeps my shine at bay all day. I like to warm my skin up with The Body Shop Honey Bronzer in 03, which isn't too warm or muddy. For a pop of color, I add the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Exposed to the apples of my cheeks. I love this blush because it's matte and is a natural shade that can be used for any occasion. After finishing up my face, I like to fill in my brows with the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Dark Brunette. See what this blog would be like if I kept writing about makeup? I would continually post about the same products over and over again! Now for a few new products and tips! After searching for an easy eyeshadow to use on an everyday basis, I discovered that the perfect shade is my bronzer! Eyeshadows usually take a while to blend out, which isn't realistic for summer time. I found that a light dusting of bronzer over the lids and blended into the crease adds the perfect hint of definition! My newest mascara love is the Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes, which is hands down the best mascara I've ever used. You can read all about my love for this mascara in this post. The Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in Roomiest Rose is the perfect pop of color for the summer time. I've used this lip product for four years and it's still my favorite formula!
