My Everyday Makeup Routine | Summer 2015

Hello again!

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. XD

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!
