Hello ladies so if you watched my stories on Instagram today, you’ll know that they were pretty long. I apologize for that! I had no idea it was going to take 60 stories to cover it all! But I wanted to share my summer makeup routine. Along with the products I use to help make my makeup last in this summer heat.
I thought it would be helpful to create this post for you all who might be a little more interested in each product, the name, and price point. So here we go, like I said I’m no Beauty expert! I just enjoy makeup and I’m so happy I got to share my routine with you!
As a reminder, makeup is for fun, it does not define us, it has literally no meaning in our lives. Looks do not define us, we have been blessed by God with features that allow us to praise, His name to love others well! I know its hard, but let us not get caught up on vanity and praise God for what the perfection He created us to have!
Makeup Products For Summer
#1 Philosophy-Purity face wash: This has been my go to face wash for the past year and a half. I love it for quickly washing my makeup off for the day. It’s gentle yet it gets the job done with just one wash! I’m a simple kind of gal. Im not interested in washing my face two to three times, I want a product that knocks it all out with one wash. This product does!
#2 The Body Shop-oil control moisturizer: This moisturizer is specifically designed to combat oil before it even starts! I always use a moisturizer! With this summer heat, I try my best to attack my oily issue from the beginning!
#3 Smash Box-pore minimizer: This is the primer I’ve been using, it’s good for keeping oil at bay along with covering imperfections. I use it to fill in pore and acne indention. It’s so good at mattifying my skin I’ve mostly worn it without foundation this summer!
#4 MAC Fix +: Love this product, I cannot say enough good things about it!! So I use this before
I apply my makeup and then after I’ve applied it. I use it before apply makeup to plump my skin, and then after I’ve applied my makeup to help blend it all together! It helps take away that powdery look.
#7 MAC Translucent Powder: I love this for under the eyes!! I also always apply this with my wet beauty blender.
#8 MAC Blotting Powder (med/Dark): With a fluffy brush I apply this blot powder, which in returns keeps my makeup put! It also helps keep oil away!
#8 MAC Bronzer ( give me sun): I have used MAC bronzers for the past 10 years, only ever including Tarte into the mix! They’re bronzers are a must for me!
#9 MAC blush (Mocha) : I Love all the MAC blushes! If I would suggest one color to someone I’d say, Mocha or Melba, they’re both are universally flattering! I use this brush to apply
#11 Mascaras: The first time I used any of these I was not a fan. But the more I used them, the more I feel in love! I’ve literally tried all kinds for all price points, the Loreal Lash Paradise is truly amazing!
