Effortless Summer Beauty
Summer beauty is by far the least complicated. We all want that sun kissed summer glow, all while protecting our skin and face from the harsh summer rays. I’m sharing some of my all-time favourite products listed below, helping you achieve an effortless summer glow.
My simple routine starts off with a great sunscreen, my goto is perfect since it’s matte and designed delicate enough for the face and neck area. Tinted moisturizer helps to keep your skin hydrated and gives that light summer glow, instead of using a heavy foundation. If you are using a tinted moisturizer or something with a little more coverage a Beauty Blender is a must, for an effortless airbrushed finish. I have tried so many “knock-off’s” of this glorious little sponge and always go back to the original Beauty Blender, as the others just don’t seem to work as well. I’ll set my entire look with a translucent loose letting powder by Laura Mercier.
Brow boy from glossier is an all-time favourite for the perfect finished brow. This set comes as a duo pack with a brow pen to ensure perfect full brows. If you’re taking your look into the evening adding this shimmer stick or freestyle highlighter compact to your cheeks will transition the look from day to evening. If I’m running out the door I’ll skip foundation and tinted moisturizer all together and just add a bit of glimmer to my cheeks to my “no makeup look”. Last but not least the mascara to end all of the mascaras this one for IT cosmetics is seriously a game-changer, by far my favourite mascara of all time! It doesn’t take a lot of wand strokes to get a full dramatic lash, and it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing any at all.
Don’t forget to take off your makeup at night, its the key to help to keep your skin clear and healthy, these wipes are perfect especially if you are off travelling. Also great after a workout at the gym, a quick and easy clean fresh face. What do I carry in my purse all summer long? The best lip balm around, the Balm Dot Com… it’s amazing and the coconut scent smells so good.
