Now that it is Summer, I do not want to spend 30 minutes applying make up every single morning and as of late, I have been reaching for a handful of products which have been my go to and are my fail safe. Summer for me, means less make up and looking more dewy than usual, and so I thought I would show you how I prep my makeup for Summer so I can be done in just 5 minutes.
Starting off with my base, I have been loving the NARS Radiant Tinted Moisturiser (shade: St Moritz - medium 1). This is the perfect shade for me at the moment and for someone who has a hard time finding a base that will match my face to my neck, this is perfect. Whilst it is still a tinted moisturiser, if I want some added coverage I go for my NARS Radiant Creamy concealer (shade: Custard - medium 1) which is perfect for under my eyes to help brighten the area up a little along with covering any blemishes I may have.
To add some colour back into my skin, I have been reaching for my MAC Studio Sculpt Defining bronzing powder (shade: Delicates), this is a waterproof powder so it is perfect for the hotter months, plus I love the fact that this is very buildable and it does not look red/orange on the skin, so if I want to contour with it, I can! For blush, I have been loving the MAC high-light powder (shade: Nude Pink), since this is a nude blush it adds that perfect amount of colour to the cheeks without looking over the top.
For my brows, I have been using the Soap and Glory Archery brow pencil (shade: hot chocolate), I love how it has a spoolie on one end to help groom your brows and distribute the product so it does not look too harsh. I know many people like the Anastasia brow wiz, but I think this is so much better and it matches my brows perfectly. Lastly, the one thing I have to apply before leaving the house is mascara. I have fairly sparse and short lashes to begin with and the one mascara I have found to work wonders is the Tarte Lights Camera Lashes mascara, I have been using the waterproof version lately and I think it is great for a waterproof mascara as it can still hold a curl and it does not budge at all!
So condensing my make up in the morning is probably the one way I prep for Summer so I can be done and out the door in 5 minutes to enjoy the sun and to make the most of my Summer. How do you prep for Summer?
