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.

Quick and Easy Makeup & What I eat on a busy day – November 2016

Hey my loves,

today I am sharing with you a super quick makeup, it takes about 10-15 minutes depending on how many times you rock out to Christmas music… I mean it’s never too early, right? I would also put it in the category ‘No Makeup Makeup’ because it’s very natural and you can’t really see it on camera but in person, your own skin shines through the BB cream. I hope you enjoy today’s entry:

Products I’ve used:


What I Eat On A Busy Day

Breakfast – Avocado on Toast

Avocado on Toast has to be my favorite, but I actually don’t make it on toast instead I like to use multigrain bread. It’s much healthier that way. I also season it with salt, pepper, garlic powder and chili flakes.

Lunch – Simple & Quick Fried Rice

For Lunch, I had a quick almost ready meal: Fried Rice with Rigatoni-Noodles and Veggies. I tried it for the first time to see if I would like it but it was seasoned too much for my taste. But I liked the idea behind it, so I’m definitely will try to recreate this recipe on my own. Let me know in the comments if you would like me to write an entry about it.

Dinner – Tuna Sandwich with Bell Pepper

For Dinner, I made my own version of a tuna sandwich. Instead of the usual complement mayo, I used cream cheese (2-3 tablespoons) and I added a bit of salt and pepper. And for some extra veggies, I added a small onion and ate some sliced red bell pepper on the side.

I hope you enjoyed today’s entry and video, and if you did make sure to show both some love. I would really appreciate it! Also, I have been more active on Instagram Stories lately, so come and say hi: The Dawn of Inspiration | Instagram

I wish you all a wonderful day!
