Summer is basically here! It is time to pull out your shorts and your sunscreen. As fun as the sun may be, I know a thing or two about how bad makeup can be in the summer. I worked in the direct heat for over 5 summers and as a makeup enthusiast, I had to learn how to not look like a melting cake every day.
Foundation: My favorite summer foundation is It Cosmetics CC Cream with SPF 50+. This is a personal must have for the summer. I originally tried it over spring break this year and I loved how it stayed on all day and didn’t look cakey in the sun. It is a Full Coverage Color Correcting Cream, Anti-Aging serum, plus Broad Spectrum Physical Only SPF 50+ all in one!
Mascara: Maybelline New York Great Lash Waterproof Mascara. This Mascara works wonders and it is only $6 at your local pharmacy or Target/Walmart. Not only is it waterproof, but it gives you fuller lashes without that clumpiness in other mascaras. It goes on so smoothly and is smudge resistant. This is one product that has stood the test of time.
Blush: It Cosmetics CC+ Radiance Ombre Blush. Okay, so I am a little obsessed with It Cosmetics! This blush is just beautiful and gives you that summer glow every girl needs. It is perfect for all skin tones!
Lips: Clinique Chubby Stick Baby Tint Moisturizing Lip Color Balm This chubby stick gives you the perfect color with the right amount of moisture. These sheers bloom on contact to bring out your lips’ natural tone. This is a must have for those summer days where you don’t want to go all the way out with the lips.
Face: It Cosmetics You Sculpted This contouring pallet made contouring so much easier and you can use it anywhere on your body. It was developed with plastic surgeons to mimic real facial contouring and provide a foolproof alternative to fillers. How cool is that? The shades are absolutely beautiful!
