Summer Make-Up Routine

Lately, I have been getting a lot of questions about makeup products I like and use regularly so here are some of my favorites recently, seeing as summer is finally upon us!! I always get an extra confidence boost when summer finally rolls around. Everyone's in a pretty relaxing mood, the sun is shining, and I am finally tan (!!!!). While I must be completely honest... the tanner I get the more the routine ends up being primer and mascara unless I am going out. **That's why your primer and mascara choices are so key, they're your staple pieces that tie in your whole entire look. The best part of summer is the sheer and light products you use, I'd say the heaviest product I do use is my concealer (when I do use it). For me the biggest makeup struggle (summer wise) for me is that I actually prefer the look of my full on foundation (L'Oreal Infallible Foundation) over the BB cream I use (just because BB cream in general gives me that wanted dewey glow but because I am oily.. I get self conscious it's a little overboard naturally. Garnier's BB Cream (oil free version) is a nice sheer summer foundation though, even for the oily. On days I really am worried though, I do dab on a little translucent powder (I have used both NYX which I linked and Makeup Forever's).  I never worry that my face resembled melting candles with it on.. ;)

In order of how I use them:
1. Sonia Kashuk Perfecting Mattifying Primer (Oily skin people you need the Mattifying version.. they have two others)
5.L'Oreal Color Lift Blush (shade Peach Gold Lift) & Brush
6. Anastasia's Brow Wiz (shade Dark Brown) ((sometimes I use shadow from the Lorac Palette instead))
7. Urban Decay's Naked Palette (First) (Sidecar, Buck, Virgin, and Toasted are some favorites)
8.Define-A-Lash Eyeliner (shade Ebony Black)
9. Urban Decay's Perversion Mascara (just picked this up & obsessed. I don't even use an eyelash curler often)
11. NYX Buttergloss (shade Tiramisu, a great go to color for everyday)
12. Essie Nail Polish (Ballet Slippers
13. Victoria Secret's Noir Tease Body Spray (go-to since high school lol)

Honestly, I just can't wait til the day I am tan enough to really only want to use primer and mascara because those are the days *cue praise emojis, sun emojis, and all the heart eyes*

  3. I need to try that Sonia Kashuk primer this summer! Thanks for the recs!


  4. I have to get my summer makeup routine in order! I love BB cream in the summer. It gives enough coverage, but not so much that you look like you're wearing makeup. I totally agree with waiting for being so tan you don't even need it!!
