Hey everyone! So I thought I would put together my must have makeup products for the summer. Since I live in Florida the summer heat is BLAZING HOT. Therefore I try not to wear too much makeup. Nothing is worst than that icky sticky melting feeling on our face. But when I do feel like wearing makeup these are my go to products! I think they are great for the heat and doesnt leave me with that gross ticky icky feeling!
For the eyes I usually go with a simple bronze shimmering look. Perfect for summer to give you that bohemian summer makeup look. I probably would use every shimmer color in the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette to achieve that Bohemian look that I always go for during summer.
There was a lot of hype when this first came out. But out of all the ones I have tried this was probably the only one I liked. It kept my lips moisturized throught the day and I think the color is soooo pretty for Summer
Surprisingly I think I might start to prefer Revlon photoready foundation over MAC. It's SPF 20, the sams size, and it doesn't give you that dewy feeling. Since my face is extremely oily I need a foundation that is not that dewy but I still want great coverts and I have to say thus did the trick. It has been compared to makeup forever foundation and is about triple the price less. I bought mine today at walgreens for 50% off so it was only 7.99! So far I tried it for a couple of days and I have to say it's my fave drugstore possibly gave all time foundation that I have come across.
My everyday face moisturizer comes from Aveeno, been using this for the past 2 years now and the face wash does wonders for my skin.
Witch Hazel Toner from Sally Beauty Supply I believe this bottle cost under $5 if I'm correct and it does wonders for my face. Keeps it feeling refreshed and so clean :) My go to blush comes from the HK line by MAC, works well with my skin color it has a peachy color to it with a light touch of sheer. Lastly, my fave Mascara as of right now! Probably the best I have come across in my lifetime! (Totally Serious) Maybelline Falsies Mascara thicken and lengthen my lashes and definitely create a look that false eyelashes gives me. This is on the top list of my drugstore Mascara!
Ok, so I finally ran out of my Bare Minerals foundation :( I'm a bargain shopper so I usually try to stick to drugstore products as much as possible.But when it comes to foundation I am willing to spend that extra penny. Last week I've been trying out my sister Amanda MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation and I loved it!!! She kept hiding it from so I won't steal it from her. However I wasn't planning on robbing her since she's like a shade lighter than me. So I thought about it and came to the conclusion I will probably spend more on searching for a foundation that I will like than buying the MAC foundation itself for 29.50. So yesterday I purchased my first MAC foundation in NC45. I have yet to try it myself but the sales person did put it on half of my face. I've been busy after work so I didn't get to play with it today. But as soon as am off at 3:30 it's on baby!
This Foundation is a must have! I didn't get to take my time and apply this foundation properly because my makeup brush were still drying. I had to apply it with a sponge but so far I absolutely love it. It matched my skin color so well and I don't even feel like I have it on. I topped it off with my bare mineral veil to set the foundation. Can't wait to see how it treats me throughout the rest of the day!
