My Summer Makeup Routine

Hello There!

Throughout the summer I have been wearing minimal makeup. However, when I do "put on my face," I wear light makeup and only use a few products. For the past few weeks, I have been wearing lots of mascara and a bright lip to focus on my eyes and bring color to my face. Here's what I've been wearing:

The Products::

MAC Studio Fix: I love this full coverage powder in the summer time because it gives you flawless skin without feeling too heavy. I like to apply the powder with the ELF powder brush, which applies the powder really smoothly and helps it blend easily. The shade is NC35.

Clinique Quick Corrector: I like this product because it applies like liquid concealer and dries like a cream concealer, with really nice coverage. I apply this minimally on my under eyes and on major blemishes. The shade is Moderately Fair.

Mark Kay Eyebrow Pencil: I like this dry, waxy pencil to give shape to my brows. I fill them in quickly and brush them through with a spooly for natural looking brows. The shade is blonde.

Physician's Formula Organic Wear Mascara: This mascara really brings the focus to my eyes, and holds up in the heat! I apply a coat of mascara, let it dry, and let go back in and apply one more coat for extra volume. It hols a curl and does not flake or smudge either. 

NYC Color Wheel Blusher: When I want a natural flush to my cheeks, I always turn to this blush. It is very pigmented and blends beautifully, and gives my cheeks a rose-y glow without looking overdone. The shade is Rose Glow.

Rimmel Kate Moss Lipstick: The entire summer I have been obsessed with this color. It is a deep berry shade with a creme finish that is gorgeous and flatters my fair complexion. The shade is 09.

These products have been my holy grail summer products.

What have you been wearing this summer?
