UPDATED Makeup Routine

It has been about a YEAR since I did my last makeup routine! HOW?! So today I hought I would bring you my UPDATED current summer makeup routine. During the sweltering summer months I try to wear minimal makeup or none at all. I typically stick with lighter products that won’t instantly sweat off my skin the second I step outside. Some of these products are old, rediscovered favorites while others are new and I am loving them! Here is my go-to glowy summer makeup routine!

PRIMER: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer in Radiance

This is the first step to my routine. This primer helps your makeup stay put all day and leaves you “glowing from within.”

FACE PRODUCT: IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream

I’m really not sure how I didn’t start using this before I did. I used to shy away from liquid products in fear of them looking cakey, but this one is anything but that! While canceling out all of the discoloration it creates the most flawless and natural finish. P.S. I have discovered applying this with your hands makes it look even more natural

(I clearly am obsessed with this product solely based on the state of its packaging)

SETTING POWDER: Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder

This is SUCH a good setting powder. I was nervous about the loose powder because let’s just be honest, that’s just a mess waiting to happen. But it works wonders. I use a wet real techniques beauty sponge (the orange one with the flat edge) to apply this all over my face and under my eyes.

CORRECTOR: Bobbi Brown Corrector in Light to Medium Bisque

This has been one of my LONG TIME faves. This is the perfect under eye concealer to cancel out under eye bags. It completely cancels out all of the darkness and makes you look more awake instantly.

CONCEALER: Benefit Boi~ing Airbrush Concealer in Light Medium

I got this for free with my latest Sephora purchase and I am obsessed. This super CREAMY concealer is perfect for spot treatment and any other problem areas.

BRONZER: Benefit Hoola Bronzer

This bronzer is a current favorite but also can be tricky and takes a good amount of blending. I love the color and natural warmth it gives my complexion. However, it is super pigmented and you need to use a light hand as well as blend blend blend!!!

BLUSH: Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush

This blush is so so so natural. It is the perfect nudey pink to top off any look.

HIGHLIGHT: cargo_HD Picture Perfect Highlighter in Bronze

I have been trying out this highlighter recently after receiving it in my Summer 2017 FabFitFun box and boy oh boy do I love it! It is super duper pigmented and gives you the perfect bronzy glow.


MASCARA: Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara

This mascara is a STAPLE in my routine and has never failed me. It makes my lashes look longer and gives them more volume at the same time. I don’t know if I will ever switch.

BROWS: Shade “Naked” from the Urban Decay Naked Palette

After coloring my hair this summer and going a bit lighter I have switched to “Naked” in my trusty Urban Decay Naked Palette to fill in my brows.
