7 summer selections
I know we're all busy these days and with the hassle of getting ready in the morning & the weather warming up it can be hard to stay fresh faced all day! I decided to put together some of my favorite products that are quick and easy to use & last through the day. I've also picked these products because they are practical for every skin tone and type. (All these products can be bought at Sephora, Ulta or their original brand websites, except the NYX eyebrow pencil from Target)
1. Josie Maran Argan Oil
In the summer your skin tends to get dry, so my go-to for hydrating my skin is Josie Maran Light argan oil for my face and neck. This is my all time favorite face oil so your face stays hydrated and doesn't dry up in the sun. There's also the regular Josie Maren argan oil that works great, I just prefer the light version. It's not too oily and feels great on your skin.
2. Smashbox Photofinish Primer
This is my favorite primer and what I put on my face right after the argan oil. It goes on smooth and makes for a great primer before you put on your foundation. I love it because it's light but lasts all day and holds your foundation well.
3. Naked Skin Urban Decay Concealer
This concealer comes in a range of colors, this one is Light Neutral. After I apply this on my face under my eyes and forehead I blend with a beauty blender so it goes on evenly. I love it because it brightens up your under eye and face and is great for contouring with a bronzer.
4. Makeup Forever Pro Finish Powder
This face powder goes on last after you've applied foundation, concealer, etc. and smooths over any imperfections. I use the Pink Beige 125 powder but they have a range of powders for every skin color. The best part is it's long lasting and I never have to worry that it'll come off.
5. NYX Micro Brow Pencil
This is my favorite drug store eyebrow pencil. It's comparable to the Anastasia Brow Wiz pencil which I love, but this one is definitely more affordable. This color is Taupe but they also have a range of different colors. The NYX brow pencil is easy to use and stays on all day!
6. Nars Blush
This blush is my go-to for the perfect color that lasts all day. The Nars blush color is Orgasm and has a reddish orange hue to it. It's not too bright or too dark, so you can wear this on almost any occasion. The shimmery coat gives you a dewy look perfect for the summer time.
7. Tarte Highlighter Days
This highlighting moisturizer gives you the perfect dewy highlight that holds all day. You can apply this all over your face before you apply makeup or last on your cheeks as a highlighter. I love it because it's easy to apply and stays in place all day. Who doesn't love a good highlighter?
