Happy Monday, Babes!
It’s been a little while since I’ve actually written a blog post, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share some of my summer beauty faves with Y’all! I get a lot of questions about makeup and beauty from my Instagram, so I am more than happy to share!
As summer approaches, I start switching up my make up. Have you ever tried keeping your full face of makeup looking pristine through the Texas heat!? No amount of primer or setting spray will keep those beads of sweat away, unfortunately 🙁 So instead of fighting it, I’ve learned to work with it!
I start with my NYX Shine Killer Primer to prep my skin to absorb as much oil as I can. I already have naturally really oily skin, so the Texas heat doesn’t accentuate it! After my primer, I use my IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream. Y’ALL. This is my new holy grail! The name doesn’t lie. It feels so light weight, just like it’s your own skin, while still being full coverage. I was worried it would be too sheer for my liking, but I have now replaced m foundation with this miracle worker! Since I loved my CC cream from IT Cosmetics so much, I decided to try out their Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer and was just as impressed. Why have I not been using IT Cosmetics all my life, though!? Game-changing brand, I swear! I then set mainly just my concealer with my Stellar Beauty Cosmic Face Haze Finishing Powder. I find that if I set my whole face, it will start to look cakey, so I just set where I apply my concealer, which is under my eyes, middle of my forehead, bridge of my nose and peak of my chin to add highlight points to my face. For an added summer glow, I’ve started reaching for my CoverFX Custom Enhancer Drops to use as my highlight. You could easily mix these drops in with your foundation for an all-over dewy look, but I just apply this to my cheekbones for a beautiful summer glow. To finish off my look, I use a few swipes of my Bobbi Brown Cream Shadow Stick in the prettiest golden pink shade on my eyelids and my NYX Butter Gloss in Tiramisu on my lips for a super natural and light finish to my look.
I hope this has answered some of your questions about my everyday look and can inspire you to find your new beauty faves this summer! If you aren’t already, be sure to follow me in the LIKEtoKNOW.it app to get all the shoppable details of my posts!
