I have to admit that I haven’t worn much makeup this summer. I’m going through kind of a weird allegery thing where my eyes get watery and my nose is super stuffy, so I don’t bother with makeup that I’m going to take off in a couple of hours anyways.
When I do decided to put a little bit on, I keep it pretty simple. I recently tried Covergirl’s Plumpify mascara, and I really like it! It’s super lightweight, which I like for my lashes in the summer and it adds just enough volume and definition to my lashes with my super simple look.
Bronzer is a must have in the summer, and recently I have been reaching for Benefit’s Hoola. This is the perfect bronzer shade for summer because it is warmer than some of the other bronzers I use, but not orange, and I have very fair skin even when I fake tan btw. Another must have is highlighter, and the only cream highlighter I have is L’oreal’s True Match Lumi in Ice. This is a little cooler color than I would normally reach for, but the staying power is what draws me to it!
(L-R) Grape Vine, Pink Punch, and Spice
For lips, I’m sticking to tinted lip balms because my lips are so dry, and as a friend once told me: I have a chapstick addiction, so these are just a few of my collection. Maybelline’s Baby Lips are a super simple thing to through in my bag and touch up on the go, I have the colors Grape Vine (a nice purply shade) and Pink Punch (a muted hot pink). One swipe of color and your good, but a second swipe and you just amp it up a little! I also recently got Covergirl’s Oh Sugar Lip balm in Spice, and the color is fantastic! It amps up your look without looking or being too heavy on the lips. Not a hug fan of the smell though, it is sickly sweet.
