Do you change your makeup routine for Summer? For these hotter days I like to go with a less is more approach. Fresh skin, a flush cheek, mascara and a POP lip are my go to look. I always love to mix some new Summer makeup trends in with my old tried and true …here’s what I am loving for this Summer!
Chanel Poudre Lumiere in 30 Rosy Gold
I am all about dewy highlighted skin for Summer but there is a huge difference between shimmer and full on sparkle… this lovely highlighter gives the perfect amount of both. Available in Ivory, Gold and Rose shades each leaves behind a sheer radiant finish. Usually I go with a golden tone for summer, but have been using the new rose gold instead and I am loving the look.
I love wearing lip gloss…in fact I pretty much don’t leave the house without something on my lips. A color change can effect my entire mood so I always like to keep a few options in my bag. The long wearing ones are a commitment but they perform as promised and you will be happy to rock the incredible color all day.
Tom Ford Lip Lacquer Extreme
These long wearing, feather light lip glosses are incredible. The full coverage, matte velvet metallic finish is a game changer, and the colors are to die for. They wear so well that recently when I fell asleep with it on (yes it happens sometimes) I woke up and it was still perfect, it didn’t even get on my pillow case. You do need a good eye makeup remover to get it off but it’s well worth it. I haven’t seen any other full coverage lip glosses with this kind of impact…totally worth the high price tag.
These long wearing lip crayons leave behind full coverage lip color with a beautiful satiny shine. Because they are in crayon form they can easily be applied without a mirror, but they wear so well that much reapplying is not needed. With 18 colors to choose from I like that most of the colors are vibrant and feel like Summer fun.
Pat McGrath Labs Lust Lip Gloss-Bronze Temptation
These sheer coverage lip glosses feel smooth and hydrating. They leave behind an almost dripping wet looking lip that is oh so sexy and super easy to wear. The Bronze Temptation has become my go to for hot but natural looking lip.
Chanel Le Volume Waterproof Mascara
Because I have oily eyelids I like to wear waterproof mascara in the Summer months. With pro vitamin B5 to strengthen lashes and vitamin E antioxidant properties this mascara makes lashes extra long, lush and smudge-proof without the typical clumping or excessive rubbing to remove. I have worked out in this mascara and it stays put.
For the perfect naturally illuminated look this product is incredible, and it can be applied in so many ways. You can use it as an eye shadow, blush, bronzer or makeup base. I have been using it as a blush because when you apply it to the apples of your cheeks it leaves behind the freshest of flush, creating a look like you are glowing from within. I just added this to my bag a few months ago and now I don’t leave home without it.
