My 5 Makeup Essentials for Summer

As the weather continues to get warmer I notice I make tweaks to my makeup routine, switching out some certain products for creamier ones. I wanted to share those items with you this week, so here are my 5 makeup picks to keep in your makeup bag this summer!

Creamy Eyeshadow Palette

Skip the eyeliner and utilize an eyeshadow that can do both and the best way to do it is with cream shadow. Get a palette like Revlon Illuminance Creme Shadow in the shade Not Just Nudes. The colors blends so nicely together and have a shimmer that is perfect for summer.

Cream Blush

I love cream blush for the summer months because it lays on the skin so naturally, it just looks like your sunkissed from a day in the sun. My go to blush lately has been Glossier Cloud Paint, in shades Haze and Dusk. Use code 2BLUSH to get two for $30 and use link code http://bff.glossier.com/fCxL8 for 20% off your first order!

Skin Tints or Tinted Moisturizers

I try to go foundation free in the summer months and just use concealer on my under eyes and blemishes, but there are days when I feel that I need a little something extra and I have been loving the Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint. It doesn’t add much coverage but it enhances the natural look of your skin and still allows any freckles to show through.

Cream Highlighter

Switch your powder highlighter for a cream version to give you cheekbones a natural glow. Also use it down your nose, on your cupid bow, and even under your brows. Haloscope from Glossier in Quartz is what I have been reaching for lately, Glossier also has 2 more colors to check out depending on your skin tone.

A Bright Lip Color

Glossier Generation G gives the effect of just blotted lipstick and lays on the lips nicely without being overdrying. For a little extra moisture though I love to apply some coconut Balm Dot Com first then apply Generation G in the shade Zip, a poppy red color.
