Get Ready With Me – Summer Makeup Routine

Well, folks. This is the last beauty video that will be gracing my blog for a little while. I hope I have the time, energy, and the non-swollen face to film and edit more videos once the littlest babe is here inย SEVEN DAYS, but I make no promises. I filmed this a few weeks back but finally am posting it.

This “Get Ready with Me” video shows me putting on my go-to summer look. Pretty much a variation of how I’ve put my makeup on all summer. It’s very simple, easy, and doesn’t take me that long to do. Bonus: this video is under five minutes for my entire summer makeup routine!

Get Ready with Me Summer Makeup Routine - Tutorial

It’s important to note that I am not using a ton of products, or tools for that matter. This is something I would wear if I were going to one of my many OB appointments or anything a step above errands. Yes, I use a ton of setting spray, but I think it’s crucial to helping this look stay put and not look cakey. That’s important to me! It seems like a lot of products at first glance, but it is done so simply and minimal. One thing worth mentioning: I am not letting one rip at 3:15 into the video. That is me getting super uncomfortable sitting on the floor and having to adjust. Just had to throw that out there. But you can pretend that I’m farting if it makes you enjoy the video more.

    Very pretty summery face. But what this video really needs is an appearance from my boyfriend. Tell Dexter I miss him already. Loved spending the weekend with you, friend!

    That CC Cream looks amazing! I’d just go buy all of this stuff, but I’m not sure if the colors would work well on my skin tone. I’m so oblivious about all of that beauty stuff!

      The CC cream is a bit of an investment ($38 for that tiny thing) but it’s at Ulta where you can test it out. You may be able to ask the girls there to make you a sample so you can try it out. But I definitely recommend it!!

    I’m totally gonna miss your videos, but, of course, you have a great reason for their absence. How exciting that it’s just a week away!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Well wishes for your delivery day – hope everything goes smoothly for you and baby girl #2 ๐Ÿ™‚

      I’m sure I’ll get really bored being at home with a newborn while Kennedy is at school so of course I’ll start making videos again. Haha!! And thank you! We are so excited!
