Just because you miss someone doesn’t mean you need them back in your life. Missing is just a part of moving on.
For some reason, it doesn’t feel very summery in my neck of the woods but I know it will happen very soon! So I need to be ready with all my beauty essentials and so do you! I have a few favorites that I always have with me and other ones that I recently discovered that I believe will be added to my regiment.
I tend to wear less makeup in summer because there is nothing more annoying than your makeup melting off and becoming all cakey. But it doesn’t mean you have to cut everything!
The Glowscreen SPF 40 from Supergoop is an excellent hydrating primer that has a pearlescent finish to leave your skin luminous with an instant glow.
You can wear this under your foundation after you applied your moisturizer or even on its own.
A good concealer such as the Pro Filt’r Instant Retouch Longwear Liquid Concealer from Fenty beauty. I believe you need a mattifying concealer to even out the sweats from perspiration.
I only apply it on my under eyes area and on the pimples I’m trying to hide.
I don’t want too many layers on my skin to avoid the cakiness so I will probably not wear anything else.
A bronzer is essential to the summer look. I like the Ambient® Lighting Bronzer from Hourglass. The illuminating bronzer will deliver a natural-looking and sunkissed glow.
I want to shine this summer!
Now on to the highlighter! I quite like the Positive Light Liquid Luminizer Highlight from Rare Beauty.
Depending on the vibe of your look you should either get a gold or a bronze highlighter.
To complete your look I would suggest Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner from Stila. It’s important to buy it waterproof so it doesn’t melt off mid-day.
You can do different styles depending on where you are going.
Oftentimes, I only wear mascara. The sky-high Mascara from Maybelline is the best in my opinion.
This is a great option if you don’t want to wear waterproof mascara. Ideally, you should, but I find that it’s too heavy on my lashes so this is a great alternative!
To stay in the summer golden goddess look, you should add lip gloss. My personal favorite: Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer by Fenty beauty.
The last step is the Airbrush Flawless Setting Spray from Charlotte Tilbury. This will help your makeup to stay on all day no matter what.
It takes about 10 min to apply this beauty essentials but you can obviously skip some steps if you wish to. Most of these products are high-end and are purchased from Sephora, but you can find drugstore dupes that are just as good!
