With the temperature rising higher and higher here in Phoenix (it's going to be 120 degrees this week - no joke!), my everyday makeup routine is yet again getting a bit of a shake-up! Rose colored lips, dewy skin and glowy cheeks + cheek bones are my kind of jam this time of year, and recently I pulled out a few favorites, new and old, that will be seeing me well through the rest of the summer season (and let's be real, probably well into autumn as well because I truly love each one of these products -- not just in the summertime). Curious as to what makeup products I'll be using on the daily these next few months? Here's the low-down --
Hourglass Blush + Ambient Lighting Powders - Hourglass products have this way of making you looking "lit from within" - if you know what I mean! I've almost hit pan on my dim lighting powder, so I'm sure a repurchase will be happening real soon -- they truly make the best powders!
Bareminerals Bareskin Perfecting Veil - This perfecting veil has been a staple in my makeup bag for years! It's the best setting power for keeping the oil + shine away!
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner (in black) - Another old favorite, but you just can't go wrong with this Stila liquid eyeliner! And yes - I love eyeliner, even in the summertime! It just has a way of bringing so much definition to my eyes!
Glossier Boy Brow (in blonde) - Ya'll, this product has changed my whole brow routine! It's easy to use, the perfect color and never makes your eyebrows feel crunchy! Glossier sure knows what they're doing!
Maybelline Great Lash - I've been using this mascara since high school and seem to find myself always going back to it -- it's just an overall great product (and so inexpensive!).
Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon (in amaretto) - These Bite lip crayons are light on the lips and super easy to apply! You're bound to find one, or two, maybe even three of these crayons in my purse at any given time!
MAC Paint Pot (in painterly) - If I was stranded on a desert island, this would be the one product I would bring with me! I wear it on my eyes everyday (even on very minimal makeup days), but you can use it as a concealer, a primer for your lips -- whatever floats your boat, really!
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter (in moonstone) - This may just be my favorite highlighter, EVER! I know that's a heavy statement, but it's good - real good, folks!
IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream (in fair) - I've been wearing this as my everyday foundation lately and I've been loving it! It's a bit thicker than my Bareminerals Complexion Rescue, but I'm loving the coverage it gives without having it feel too heavy on my skin!
Alright, now it's your turn to spill the beans! What's in your summer makeup bag? What products are you loving right now? Favorite blush? Highlighter? Let a gal know!
