Today, I thought I would show y’all my everyday makeup routine for summertime. I hope that you all enjoy!
I begin by concealing around my eyes, nose, mouth and any blemishes that may have popped up with my L’oreal True Match concealer in N 4-5. I blend this out with my Zoeva 102/Silk Finish Brush. I love this thing. I mean, it’s rose gold, how could I not?!
I have been wanting really sheer coverage, lately, so I have been mixing my Revlon ColorStay concealer in a slighter tanner shade than my TrueMatch and mixing a couple of dabs of that with my Clinique Dramatically Different face lotion to create a kind of tinted moisturizer. I find that this gives me the perfect coverage and color. I apply this with the same Zoeva brush.
I set this with a little bit of my Revlon Translucent Powder to keep my T-zone from getting oily. I use my AMAZING Sephora Pro All-over Powder brush, which is so big and fluffy and just makes my heart happy.
I gotta get my bronze on, so next I add a little color and dimension to my face with my Anastasia Contour Kit in Medium/Dark. I use 4 shades and just kind of swirl them all together for the perfect bronze. I apply this to my temples, cheeks, jaw and neck, and a little on my nose with a fluffy brush that I picked up from Target. It has no name on it, so I have forgotten what brand it is, but even though it was so cheap, I love it; it’s super soft and never sheds! I am not sure what I am staring so intensely at off in the distance in this picture… oh well. 😄
Of course, I gotta put on some blush, so I have been LOVING Coralista by Benefit. I apply this with my Sephora Blush brush. I love the shimmer in this blush that is not overpowering, but gives me a nice flush and glow. That sounds odd, but I what I am trying to say is it’s very, very beautiful. And I love it. 🙂
Onto the eyes! I love having simple makeup in the summer, so I have been using Benefit’s cream eyeshadows in My Two Cents (the coppery shade), and Birthday Suit (the darker shade). I love how they have shimmer and the colors really bring out the blue in my eyes since they are bronze-y/copper-y colored. They are super easy to apply and I never have a problem with them creasing! I apply My Two Cents all over my lid with my finger and then add in some Birthday Suit on the crease and outer V for a little dimension.
I then add a little sparkle to my inner corners and brow bones with my Highlighter from my Urban Decay Flushed palette and a Sephora Concealer Brush. I also line my lash line with some Urban Decay eyeliner in and smudge it out a little with my Sephora Angled Liner Brush.
I then add a coat of Urban Decay’s Perversion and seal in that coat with my Covergirl Waterproof Mascara. I filled in my brows just a bit with Essence’s Blonde Eyebrow Pencil in 04.
Lastly, I added my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE OF ALL TIME gloss, which is Dolly by Buxom. It’s amazing. I think everyone needs this gloss in their life. I just had to do duck lips with this beauty on… no judgement. 😉
And with that, my makeup routine is done! I can slap all these products on my face in about 5-10 minutes in the morning and they last all day. I like to keep it nice and natural with a little glow and I find that this makeup look does just that. I hope that you enjoyed seeing my routine! Let me know what products you use every day in the comments, I would love to know! Until next time!
