Summer is thought of as a time for swimming and poolside relaxation, no makeup involved. But on nights where you want to go out for a girls night or a cute date, you need a little glam! Let us ~dive~ right in!
Step One: Prime!
Forgetting to prime is the worst makeup mistake one could make... I'm a bit of a primer junkie. I mix 4 sprays of Mario Badescu's Rose Water, one splash of MAC Fix+, and a pump of Too Faced's HangoverRX Primer, I slather this potion all over my face. This primer combination is heaven for my dry skin, but if you have combination or oily skin, I would roll with your go-to primer.
Step Two: Apply Foundation and Concealer!
One of the best foundations for summer is Maybelline's Dewy and Smooth Fit Me Foundation, this stuff will leave your face glowing to the Makeup GODS! It is an incredible lightweight yet full coverage foundation that will stay on all day long. As for concealer, if you haven't tried Tarte Shape Tape.. get on it. This concealer makes it seem like my dark circles never existed, it's incredible.
Step Three: Set & Bronze!
To set my face I usually bake with the RCMA No Color Powder, which does wonders. While my face is setting I like to bronze up my cheeks with the classic Hoola Bronzer by Benefit. They recently came out with Hoola Lite for all the pale gal pals out there.
Step Four: Blush and Highlight!
I'm using Tarte's Amazonian Clay Blush in the shade Paaarty. I got this as a free birthday gift from Sephora and I haven't put it down since. Finally, I'm topping my cheek bones with Anastasia Beverley Hills Glow Kit. This product was limited edition but I'm also in love with the ELF Baked Highlights which are a much more affordable option.
Step Five: Eyebrows!
For ages I lived without doing anything to my brows... it was not a good look. Make sure to at least color in your brows a little, I like the IT Cosmetics Brow Power.
Step Six: Eyeshadow!
To learn how to achieve this look, head on over to my YouTube channel where I work with the Morphe 35O and well as some drugstore options!
Step Seven: Falsies!
Recently I fell into the trap of wearing fake lashes every day. Now I feel like no look is as glamourous without them. If you don't love falsies just apply your favorite mascara!
Alright Ladies (or gentleman), you are ready for a summer night out! Go get em!!
