Summer is here and it is getting a little too hot to wear layers of make up. While I tend to put on a full face of make up most days, I am attempting to cut down my routine and sum it up in a matter of just 5 steps/products
Don't ask me where I got the number five from...haha
Here are my 5 items for a complete summer face, I am going for minimal - super hot days!
(melting make up is not a good look)
1. Loreal True Match Concealer
Been buying this since I was 17, bit of nostalgia with this product. I have tried a lot of great brands but always come back to this
2. Anastasia Brow Pencil
Brows really frame the face and gives your whole face a complete look. I want to try Anastasia Brow Whiz next, but this lady definitely knows what she is doing!
3. Smith's Rosebud Salve
Some say it is like rose scented vaseline, and it is! But I just cant get enough of this stuff. I own many balms, but I always make sure to keep this in my make up bag. Great for cuticles and last minute brow emergencies, these help give it a good shape like an ad hoc wax!
4. NARS Cactus Flower
Looks scary in the pan but applies very sheerly on the skin. Especially with a stippling brush. I actually have to rub pretty hard to get the bright color I want. Definitely buildable with a stipling brush, but gives an amazing pink youthful glow, love to layer this with NARS O but if I had to choose, this wins in my book
5. Shu Uemura Eye Lash Curler
Since I am constricted to 5 items, I can't put a mascara but I think if you don't curl your lashes your mascara is hard to see anyway.
( Unless you are blessed with amazing lashes, then I am so jealous!)
Curling your lashes really widens/brightens the eyes, so I can't live without this!
What are some of your summer items? Are you trying to limit products too?
Hope you enjoyed!
