Makeup Monday: My Top Summer Makeup & Skincare Products

Hello! Lovelies
 
Summer is here! Either you love it or hate it but no matter what its not going anywhere anytime soon. It's hot and dry or humid depending upon where you live. The summer sun and heat can take a real toll on your skin if you don't take care of it properly.

Everyone loves a nice tan but nobody likes a sunburn. Plus sunburns can lead to skin cancer which nobody wants. Below are a few of my favorite skincare and makeup products for the hot summer months.
 
 

 
 
 

Summer


1.Aveeno Protect + Hydrate, 2. CeraVe Am Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30, 3. Astor Skin Match Glow BB Cream, 4. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner "Trooper", 5. Elf Bush Palette "Light", 6. Circa Ultrasuede Cream Blush "01 Imperia", 7. Elf Smudge Pot "Crusin Chic"


During most summer days I don't like wearing a ton of makeup. It can make your face hot & sweaty, lead to breakouts and sometimes just doesn't seam to stay on your face.
 

Sunscreen: The last two summers I have used Aveeno Protect + Hydrate SPF 30. It works great. Seams to be one of the best sunscreens I've ever used. A couple weeks back I went to an outdoor concert and stood in line for hours in the hot sun. And I only applied it once and it kept my skin protected the whole afternoon & evening. I would advise to reapply I just didn't because I left mine in my car.

Face Moisturizer: I've been using the CeraVe line for 4 years now, It was recommend to me by my dermatologist. Originally it could only be bought at a doctors office but now you can buy it at Walmart & Target or online. Moisturizing your face is very important. It keeps your skin looking healthy and hydrated. This one also has an SPF 30 which is great to protect your face from the harmful rays of the sun. Always remember to protect your face from the sun because sun damage causes early aging. And nobody wants that!

Face Makeup/BB Cream: In the summer if I'm not doing anything special or need to look "perfect" I opt for a BB cream rather than a heavy foundation. It's lighter on the skin and lets your face breath better. Recently I have been using one from the brand Astor. The only downside to this one is that its German and isn't for sale in the US. But you can buy it online.

Eyes & Eyeliner: For everyday looks during the summer I usaually skip eye shadow all together, some nights or special occasions I'll wear eye shadow but most days i'll go bare or rock a winged liner look. During the summer you need a liquid liner with a long staying power. So look no further, Kat Von D Tattoo Liner is what you need. It lasts all day long. And if you are wanting a nice all over easy to apply color I recommend a cream shadow or stick. The one I've been loving is a ELF Smudge pot. They come in a handful of lovely colors and only cost $3 dollars!

 
 Blush: In the summer I love a bold blush color. Whether it be a bright pink or peachy shade. For higher end I'll go for MAC but if you are looking to spend less than I'd say ELF. My normal day to day makeup look always includes ELF whether it be blush or bronzer. They make great blush duos & palettes. Sometimes I even layer my blush. That way you should be good all day. I'll take a cream blush and then layer a powdered over the top. My current favorite is Circa Beauty's cream blush in imperia 01.

So those are my favorite items for the hot summer days. I hope you find some new products to try. I highly recommend them all.
