I don’t like to cake on a ton of makeup during the summer because it’s most likely just going to melt off my face as soon as I step outside (hello humidity). I will usually switch out a lot of my full coverage products for more light weight ones and not use as many powder products. A few of these products I have been using for years and love them and a couple of them I just recently purchased but are quickly becoming some of my favorites. So if you’re like me and you always want to have that, I just got back from a lavish vacation in the Caribbean, look all summer long then definitely check out some of these products!
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer– This is one of the products I’ve been using for a few years now and it last a while even if you use it everyday. I just use my fingertips to apply it all over my face and blend it in. It’s really lightweight and gives good coverage. It even has spf 20 in it so it’s great to take when going on a beach vacation! I use the oil free one because my t-zone tends to get oily throughout the day.
Laura Mercier Translucent Powder– This is another one of my tried and true products! I use this all year long and I use it many different ways. I’ll use it right on top of the tinted moisturizer, to set my under eye concealer, or to set my whole face after I’ve applied all of my makeup. I apply it with the Real Techniques Powder Brush for all over or with the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge to set my concealer.
Soleil Tan De Chanel– I’ve had the bronzer for like 4 years now and I still have so much left! I only use it during the summer because it’s a little dark for my pale skin any other time of the year but it’s honestly my favorite bronzer and I highly recommend it! It’s a little pricey, which is why this is the only Chanel product I own and will probably ever own, but it’s worth the splurge and will last you forever! I don’t have any rules for applying bronzer I just put it wherever I think I need a little more color. I apply it with the Real Techniques Blush Brush which is perfect for applying any kind of bronzer.
Becca Mineral Blush In Songbird– I purchased this blush about a month ago and I don’t think I have used another blush since. The color is a shimmery coral and is perfect for summer. It goes on so smoothly and a little goes a long way. I apply it with the Mac 129 Brush. I love the Becca bronzers and highlighters as well and this blush did not dissapoint!
Marc Jacobs Mascara– I’m always on the lookout for a better mascara then the one I’m using. For the last few years I’ve been using the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and I always find myself going back to it after a couple of days of using something else. But 2 weeks ago I walked into Sephora and asked one of the woman working there what her favorite mascara was and without hesitation she suggested the Marc Jacobs and the first time I used it I was like OMG this is freaking amazing! It goes on so smooth and doesn’t clump at all. It gives my lashes a ton of volume and makes them really stand out. Needless to say I think I have found my new favorite!
