Quick and Effortless Summer Makeup

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.

Spring Make Up Look – 2016

Hey my loves,

today I’m sharing a look with you I created for this year’s Spring season inspired by the upcoming trends. I took my own spin on using blue eyeshadow! Here’s what the end result looks like (oh and fyi I created this look before I touched up my roots and trimmed my hair):

The Eyes

Since I have green eyes I thought blue eyeshadow on the lids would not go with my eye color so I thought how can I create a look with using blue, and since I had a blue winged liner for last years make up look, I decided to smoke out my under-eye. By the way, that’s the look I’m talking about: Color Pop – Make Up Look – Spring 2015

I kept the eyeshadow look on the upper lid fairly simple. It’s pretty much my everyday go-to look except I don’t wear eyeliner on an every day base. But I wanted something simple for the top, so I went for a gold and brown mix. Here are all the products I used for my eyes:

Products used on the upper lid:

  • Catrice – Chocolate Nudes Eyeshadow Palette in 010 Choc’ Let It Be
    • I used a mixture of the 5th and 1st shadow (from left to right) and applied it on my lid, then I used the 3rd color as a transitioning color in the crease and after it, I applied the 4th color lightly over that. Lastly I applied the 2nd color as a brow bone highlight.

Products used on the under eye-area and lashes:

The Face

Now let’s talk about the face. I used a mixture between two foundations, because I’m currently in between colors and also because one of them is more hydrating than the other. And I forgot to but my primer to the products, but I used the Nivea Men After Shave Balsam in Sensitive. Here is everything I used on my face:

First I used the lipliner to outline my lips and then I filled in with my lipstick.
