My Summer Makeup
My friend Eunah inspired me to get my summer makeup together and snap a photo. I’m still using eyeshadow primer and Naked Pallet by Urban Decay. I swear that primer is a life saver for my shadow and liner. I usually put a vanilla color on my brow bone and stick with one color as my main lid color. (recently kitten by Stila).
Since I have mono lids (I get a crease in one eye when I get really tired or stressed), it’s difficult to figure out where to place the shadow. A good rule (for me): from lash line to the top of where your eyeball is. Then blend so there isn’t a harsh line.
I normally don’t wear eyeliner but my BFF gave me an eyeliner and I tried it out today and I love it! Since it’s a smudge eyeliner, it has a tendency to smear. I set the eyeliner with a black eyeshadow and that usually does the trick. Amazing what a difference eyeliner makes, I’ve been missing out since I stopped wearing liner! I stopped using liner (in purple usually) around the new year and now I think I have to start wearing it again!
I usually curl my lashes, use mascara primer only when I’m going somewhere special and then my favorite DiorShow mascara. I swear I had non-existent lashes that were thin and DiorShow makes my lashes look thick and so much volume. I can’t say it’s THE mascara to get because my BFF doesn’t like it. But for me, it is my favorite!
I use a little bronzer under my cheekbones and over my forehead for a little color. I’m so pale… so I want to look a little sun kissed.
I’m absolutely in love with those Revlon Lip Butters! I have a variety of colors but lately I have been wearing bright pinks. They make me feel summery and happy.
What is your summer makeup routine?
I don’t wear makeup everyday… maybe three or four times a week. Mostly because it’s a lot of effort and it takes too much time. (ha, I complain about 10 minutes) The days I don’t wear makeup, I just use some bronzer and mascara.
My routine hasn’t changed much since December, looks like I swapped a few things though!
