Summer Beauty Essentials

When summer rolls around, I find myself minimizing my makeup routine and opting more for lightweight coverage on the skin. I also don’t really go that many places during the day aside from the gym, so my routine has been super minimal lately. I figured it would be fun to share all of the things I’ve been reaching for. I’ve put together a video talking about all of my summer beauty essentials! The focus here is on the skin and making it sweatproof, non-cakey, dewy, and illuminated. I love reaching for products that help me achieve that look, and I love things that are great at multi-tasking (i.e. brighten up the eyelid while also priming the eyes for eyeshadow… thank you MAC Paint Pot!).

Summer Beauty Essentials - Everything you need for sweatproof, non-cakey, dewy, illuminated skin!

So, get ready for video time! Hope you enjoy and don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel!!

    I only wear make-up for pictures or special occasions but I do find that sunscreen is my one change for the warmer weather. 🙂 That beauty blender looks cool.

      The beauty blender is AWESOME! It definitely makes everything you put on your face look airbrushed. You should keep wearing that sunscreen all the time – it will help you in the long run!! 🙂

      Oh yes, especially down here in Humid Houston! I swear that all nighter spray really helps!

    I’m a big fan of light weight make up for the summer! I really want to find a bb cream I like!

      Give the Pond’s one a look! I seriously had no idea I would like it as much as I do, but it’s one of my favorites!

    I definitely go lighter on the makeup and the perfume. I find that some days I don’t even put on makeup and just go with the natural summer glow. 😉 Plus, my skin needs to breathe in this Houston humidity. As far as perfume, I do a lot more light body sprays…especially coconut scents.
