My Summer Makeup Routine

Happy Saturday everyone!

Today I’m going to be sharing how I achieve my summer makeup look, or my “No Makeup” makeup look. This whole process takes about 15 minutes and is perfect for days when you’re running errands, headed to work, or even out with friends for a summer night!

I love that this makeup look is extremely versatile, and can be achieved using very affordable products. Almost all of the products that I use can be found at your local Walmart, Kroger, or drugstore which means that they are perfect for anyone’s budget!

Step 1: Foundation – Wet N Wild Photofocus Foundation $5.99

I love this foundation for the summer because it’s a build-able formula. During these warmer months I will use a very thin layer, just enough to even out my skin tone.

Step 2: Concealer – Tarte Shape Tape Concealer $27.00

This concealer is a must-have for any time of the year. I use the shade “Fair”. This product covers up dark circles, highlights the high points of the face, and lasts all day long.

Step 3: Setting Powder – RCMA No Color Powder $12.00

This is my favorite setting powder of all time! I love it because it is so affordable, but it also leaves the skin with a natural matte finish. This finish is perfect for my oily skin, especially when it’s hot outside!

Step #4: Eyeshadow – Jaclyn Hill Palette $38.00

For my summer eye look I use the shades: “Silk Creme” as the first transition shade, “Butter” as another transition shade, “Pooter” as the shade to deepen my outer v, and “Beam” to highlight the brow bone and inner corner.

Step #5: Bronzer – Wet N Wild Color Icon Bronzer $3.99

This is the one product that I actually use more of during the summer months. I use the shade “Ticket to Brazil” and it warms up the skin wonderfully!

Step #5 Highlight – Ofra Cosmetics Rodeo Drive Highlighter $29.00

This is a great highlighter at any time of year, but especially in the summer because of it’s golden reflect on the skin. It’s super smooth and buttery. I will also sometimes use this product as an all over the lid shade on my eyes!

Step #6 Blush – Flower Beauty Flower Pots Powder Blush $9.99

This is a great summer blush because it gives a light wash of color to the cheeks. I love the shade “Sweet Pea” and I apply a very thin layer to the cheeks.

Step #7 Mascara – Benefit Rollerlash $24.00

This is the mascara that I use all year round. It is my holy grail product and I truly don’t believe that I could live without it. I curl my eyelashes before applying this product and then apply 2 to 3 layers depending on how my eyelashes are cooperating that day.

Step #8 Setting Spray – Milani Make It Last Setting Spray $9.99

I love this setting spray so much and I can’t believe that it’s so affordable. This product helps to keep my oiliness at bay, while also extending the life of my makeup. There is a noticeable difference in my makeup when I use this spray. Not only does it make my makeup last longer, but it also helps all of my face products melt into the skin and look more natural.
