One of my favorite things about Summer is the relaxed makeup routine that comes with it. It is best to leave thicker foundation and powders for Winter and Fall. The light and dewy look is best for summertime. All you need is some mascara, light shimmer, and a little color for the lips, and you are good to go! I thought about some of my summer makeup essentials, and here they are:
1. Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick / 2. Bare Minerals SPF Foundation / 3. Neutrogena Clear Pore Cleanser and Mask / 4. Bobbi Brown Mascara / 5. Aveeno Waterproof Sunscreen / 6. Burt's Bees After Sun Soother / 7. Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer / 8. Nars Pencil Eyeliner / 9. June Jacobs Moisturizer SPF 15
The Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick gives a great amount of color to your face, and you can use it as blush, bronzer, or eyeshadow! Bare Minerals foundation is perfect for Summer since it is very light but gives some coverage to even out my skin. The Neutrogena Cleanser doubles as a mask, and it leaves my face feeling cool, calm, and clean. I love the Bobbi Brown mascara during this time of year, because it lengthens your lashes very will without making them look clumpy or thick. Also, I am in and out of the water and sun a lot, so the Aveeno waterproof face sunscreen is a must for me. Burt's Bees After Sun Soother is the perfect cure to too much sun exposure. Also, Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer cools off your lips and gives them color all at once. The Nars eyeliner adds emphasis to my eyes. I usually use it along my lower lashes for definition.Lastly, I have used June Jacobs moisturizer daily for two years now, and it is the best! It brightens your face and leaves it feeling very smooth. As you can see, these products are definitely my favorite!
