Summer time make up routine

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

It's Summer time! and for me is kind of exciting and frustrating. The exciting part of it are of course the lazy pool days, the sunny splashes at the beach and so on... 
The frustrating, is the make up department. Living in South Florida during summer is not an easy task. Humidity is my enemy and it makes it really hard to wear make up!

Today I want to show you an easy, quick, and humidity friendly  as possible make up routine, for those days when I really want to look more polished.

To conceal darkness or any other, I love to use the Maybelline Age rewind concealer. 
The coverage is amazing, yet not cakey.

Since foundations tend to feel heavier when you are in hot weather a powder foundation is defenitely going to be friendlier and lightweight on the skin. 
Make up Forever's Duo mat is a great choice since it provides buildable/ matte coverage.

To give the skin warmth and more definition, a matte bronzer is a must have! Just apply some on the hollows of your cheeks and even lightly around the face to complete the look.  Tarte's Park Avenue princess is a matte bronzer and I love the natural finish it provides.

If you want to add a little bit of color on your cheeks. A soft pink blush can give a fresh finish. Any soft pink would work. MAC Lovecloud  is one of my favorites.

Lashes are so important when it comes to make up. Using the right mascara can open your eyes and make you look fresh and awake. The L'oreal Telescopic Shocking extensions mascara has become one of my ultimate favorites. The way the wand separates the lashes, makes them look beautifully longer!

 And lastly,we can not forget about the lips. Personally, I love bold lip colors. It is the easiest way to spice up your make up or even your outfit! I am obsessed with the new Maybelline Vivids as I have mentioned before. They are super pigmented and the variety of shades are absolutely gorgeous! This one is Fuschia Flash.

If you are not a fan of lipsticks, a lip gloss is another way to go.
The "Kiss me" lip glosses from Philosophy are not sticky and they give that luscious look.
 Hope you find this useful
 and please share with me your favorite
 make up tip/ product
 for summer!
