Hey my loves,
today I am sharing with you my go-to make up for those super hot summer days. All you need is about five to seven products.
When it is super hot outside I like to stick to a super simple and easy makeup. I make sure to even out my skin tone. I use a concealer for that.
But before concealer I use primer.
I’ve been using the Maybelline – Superstay Primer. It makes my makeup last all day and even though I will only be using concealer I like to have a base for it.
I basically spot conceal and get rid of my dark circles. Currently I have been using the Maybelline – Instant Age Rewind Concealer. I use my finger to apply the concealer onto the spots and my under-eye.
To set my under-eye concealer I use a brightening powder.
Currently I have been trying out the Maybelline – Baking + Brightening Loose Powder. I only use it under my eyes and on my t-zone. On most days I don’t have to set the rest of the concealer, I only sweat in my t-zone and have creasing under my eyes.
I either apply blush or bronzer.
On hot days I don’t like to have too many powders on my face and because I haven’t found great drugstore liquid blushes or bronzer I usually stick to one of the powder versions. I either use my Too Faced – Sweethearts Blush in Something About Berry or a mix of the three bronzer shades in my Maybelline – Bronzer Palette.
Highlight is a must.
In summer I can’t live without highlighter. I’m currently using the MAC – Mineralize Skin Finish in Soft & Gentle. I apply on the tops of my cheek bones, the tip of my nose, the inner corner of my eye, my brow bone and on my cupids bow.
Waterproof Mascara is a life saver.
I always use waterproof mascara, but I especially wear it in summer. Sweat will tear off any other mascara and I will look like a panda. I’m using the Maybelline – Perfect Mascara.
Set and set again.
Last but not least, setting my makeup is one of the biggest MUST’s. I have to set my makeup or I will end up with nothing on my face in under an hour. I use the Maybelline – Super Stay Setting Spray. It works wonders for me.
Light dab of color for the lips.
Now lastly, I apply lipstick. I usually just dab whatever color I want for the day on my lips and that’s it. Currently I have been using the Gerard Cosmetics – Lipstick in Berry Smoothie or NYX – Soft Matte Lip Cream in San Paulo.
