My Summer Makeup Routine


I don't know about you, but I typically wear less makeup in the summer. I do so for two obvious reasons.

1. I'm usually darker from the sun or a Mystic Tan.
2. It's hot as balls.

It's a waste of good makeup if you're just going to sweat it off. In years past, I would wear tinted moisturizer. This year I jumped on the BB cream train. BB cream paired with a few other essentials makes for a light and fresh face. Here are the products I'm currently loving for summer.



1. Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream // 2. Erase Paste Concealer // 3. Rimmel Eye Shadow Quad in Smokey Brun
4. They're Real Mascara // 5. Baby Lips in Strike a Rose 6. Benefit Dandelion Powder

I definitely change up my routine in the summer. This summer I've basically gone without everything except BB cream. I just haven't felt like making myself up, I guess.

I don't wear that much make up day to day at work year round. That BB cream looks awesome. I had to read the description to figure out what BB stands for. I've never tried that or even tinted moisturizer but I probably should because I refuse to wear liquid foundation unless I'm dressing up and going to a party. So, only like a few times a year. Tinted lotion would be a nice alternative for day to day.

I have #2, #4 and #5. I love Benefit products.

I don't think I stray much from my regular regime, but that's usually pretty simple anyway. I just keep it a bit lighter and add some major SPF. Gross. I'm looking forward to summer so my skin calms down from all the sunscreen. No matter how oil free/fragrance free/good for your skin it is, my skin still freaks out. I want to try that shade of Baby Lips and the Benefit powder!

I am a huge BB Cream whore. I think I have about 6 different types alone in my medicine cabinet as we speak (to be fair it's probably only 4 brands, but different shades). I think that Olay smells the best but I love the coverage of Ponds and the Almay CC Cream the best.

I need to get that Rimmel quad, that's perfect for me. and that baby lips shade is SO pretty!!

How do you like the Erase Paste?
