Summer Makeup Routine

In the summer, I keep my makeup pretty minimal. I used to be a foundation every. single. day kind of girl but thanks to Rodan+ Fields I can keep it lighter. I still wear makeup because I think it's fun but I don't feel like I HAVE to wear it all day, everyday. It's a freeing feeling, that's for sure!

I use the R+F mineral peptides powder as my full face powder and to replace foundation. It has peptides in it so it's doing awesome things for your skin where anti-aging is concerned. It also contains SPF, so I'm getting extra sun protection, other than just my moisturizer. I love that it's a build-able coverage but never looks heavy or settles into my fine lines. I never really liked mineral powders in the past because of those reasons, but thank goodness this one is in a league of it's own.

Next, I use the bronzer on my cheeks, forehead, hair line, and a little under my jaw line. Since, I keep my face out of the sun and always have sunscreen on, my face tends to be much lighter than my body. The bronzer helps to give me a warm glow without looking overboard. I love the Hourglass bronzer and I have the Ambient Light Edit palette, which is great because it also has blushes and finishing powders. I think this was a Christmas-time exclusive but you can still buy the bronzer on it's own. It has a great glow to it without chunky glitter. LOVE it.

I love the MAC blushes, especially the Pro Longwear formula. They last forever and don't fade throughout the day. My current favorite is the shade Melba. It's a soft peachy bronze color that looks super natural. Blush and mascara are my two favorite makeup items... must-have :)

I use the Nars Smudge-Proof eye shadow primer for my oily eyelids. This helps cut down on the oil and helps my eye shadow last all day without creasing. I've tried a bunch and this is my fave for sure.

Eyeshadow is a super fun way to change up your makeup but like I said, in the summer I stay minimal. One of my go-to glory shades is the MAC Paint Pot in Rubenesque. I'm almost positive I've talked about this before but it's still one of my favorites. It looks super orange in the picture but it's not at all. It's a peachy pink with gold mixed in. It changes color in different light and looks beautiful day or night. Plus it's in a paint pot which means its easy-peasy to apply... no brush required. Sometimes I'll take the bronzer on a blending brush and put that in my crease for more dimension too.

The Lancome Grandiose mascara is still a love of mine. I've tried a ton of mascaras and this one stays all day, makes my lashes look long and full, without clumping (too) much. It's a little pricey but it lasts a long time and is worth every penny.

I wear the R+F lip shield during most days but if I want a little color I use the Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie lipgloss in Show Off. It's a peachy pink color that looks really natural and goes with any outfit. My perfect shade!
