I don’t know about you, but I spend way less time getting ready in the summer than any other time of year. It is so hot out that I can’t be bothered to make myself even hotter by running around getting ready!
I personally love a more natural look in the summertime. I often will just wear moisturizer and call it a day! When I want to look a bit more together, I do wear makeup but I want to keep it as simple as possible. This summer I have been only wearing 5 products and I love how easy it is to get ready!
I like to start off by using the CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion. I love this for summer, because its oil free and has SPF 30. ☀️ I wear this with or without makeup, and I always bring it with me if I’m going to be outside to reapply! It is super lightweight, but it still works! I got mine from Target.
Next, I apply my foundation. I like to use drug store foundation in the summer, because I always do get a bit of a tan and I don’t want to spend $$$ on a shade I can’t use all the way up! I also don’t mind sweating in it if I didn’t pay as much. I have been using the L’Oréal True Match super-blendable makeup and I love it! It also has SPF 17 in it which makes it great for summertime. I wore this on a super hot day in Nashville last weekend and it stayed on like a dream! I wear the shade nude beige W3 and I appreciate that they have warm and cool shades!
I’ve been using the Benefit Gimme Brow for a few months now, and I really like it! Before using this, I would just fill my brows in with eyeshadow. I still prefer that method, but I find that it’s so much quicker and easier to use this! I use the 4.5, but could probably go down to a 4. I have the travel size because I’ve practically been living out of my suitcase this summer, and it is super convenient for throwing in my bag!
This is my favorite mascara ever, and I have tried so many mascaras. The Benefit BAD gal BANG! doesn’t run after a long day like other mascaras I’ve tried which is perfect for hot days! I like the length it gives!
This is my all time favorite lip product, color, everything. I have been wearing this for almost a year now and I still get compliments on it all the dang time! It’s the Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink lipstick in the shade seductress. I love that it stays on all day. I’ve heard some people say they don’t like it because it’s hard to get off, but I think it comes off just fine with a makeup wipe or remover. I love it!
These are my favorite products to create a quick and easy look! Let me know if you try them, and what your favorite products are for summertime!
