Happy Monday! And happy summer!! Today I want to share some of my favorite makeup for summer. I don't wear a ton of makeup in the summer but when I do, these are the things that I cannot do without!
The original Naked Palette is my favorite for summer because I love the more gold/bronze tones with a tan! There are colors that can make it look like you are wearing almost no makeup, and there are colors that can be used for a much more dramatic look.
This a color that seriously looks good on everybody. It has a slight golden shimmer and also looks great with a tan. It is easy to make it very subtle for daytime or make it a little brighter if thats the look you're going for.
This is the best primer I have tried, and its perfect for mineral foundation. It does not make your face shiny (very important in the summer when its hot!) It also has SPF 15 so even if your foundation doesn't have SPF you don't have to mess around with a layer of greasy sunscreen under your makeup!
I think mineral foundations are amazing for summer because they are light and usually not as harsh on your skin (the sun and the heat are bad enough!) Its also super easy to reapply if you sweat. This foundation in particular is supposed to be waterproof and last all day. While I wouldn't say it is 100% waterproof, it does last really well.
Not quite the caliber of my beloved MAC pro-longwear concealer but this is another really good concealer. It goes on really easily (you really don't even need a brush) which makes it super easy to throw in your bag during the summer for touch ups. It is also waterproof so its perfect for days by the pool or the lake, or even if you're just going to be sweating.
I've mentioned this before but this is my most used Mascara. Its good for daily use because it is really easy to take off. It puts "tubes" on your lashes so if you sweat or get wet its not going to smudge and it will definitely still look good after a long day. It actually doesn't even really come off when you're swimming (unless you rub your eyes). Even if you rub your eyes the most it will do is flake a little bit so its much easier to fix than raccoon eyes!
This is a new product for me, but I have the non-tinted Sugar lip-balms and I love them. Its super hydrating and it has SPF 15. I love this one because it has just a very slight berry tint to it, which adds to any super natural day time look.
This is also a really new product for me, but so far I love it! I wanted a setting powder that would keep my makeup in place all day and this has definitely done the trick.
Once again, I'm all about makeup that really stays put in the summer. Through sweat, water, you name it I want to be able to be active and not have to worry about all my makeup coming off. This setting spray definitely does the trick. Be careful how much you put on though because it can make your face shiny if you spray too much!
