However, the days that I do worn makeup this summer, this is what I wear (after I wash my face and use toner and moisturizer):
|That's all folks!|
Maybelline Volum' Express One by One Mascara... This is a newbie to my makeup drawer, and I am really liking it! It is similar to the Chanel Immitable in the wand, yet is way more in my budget. The Chanel is my all-time favorite mascara, but I just can't swing it anymore, especially since I go through mascara pretty quickly.
Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Mineral Powder with SPF 20. I found this through Shasta's blog, and I am obsessed! It is way better than a loose powder because it doesn't make you look "all powdered up." I ordered it online, but ordered the wrong shade so they sent me several samples to try out, and when I figured out which was the best, I sent my original order back and they exchanged it. They were wonderful to work with! I bought the handi brush with it and it makes it go on smooth and flawless!
Nars blush in Gilda... I swear I bought this a good 8 years ago and rarely used it, but now I love it. It is a pretty coral/ peachy color and has serious lasting power! Just a little on the apples of my cheeks and I am out the door!
Ok, so things that I used to be obsessed with but I am no longer using day-to-day:
Bronzer... I've found that if I use the right color base, i don't really need it. However, if I am going out or to an event, I will still use it.
Eyebrow pencil... I just don't want to take the time to pencil in my brows everyday. Nuff said.
Eyeliner... I just think that eyeliner looks too dramatic on me during the day, so I only wear it when I'm going out.
What is your summer makeup routine? Is it different than your normal routine?
PS- Here is a sneak peak at some of the progress on the house!
