Summer Everyday Makeup

Simplicity has never done me wrong. Whether its shopping or decorating, keeping it simple¬†always wins. And it’s no different with my makeup.

Everyday Summer Makeup

Since I have dry/combination skin (who knows where this “combination” situation came from, I’ll be writing about that soon.), I’m all about moisture and using products that add moisture to my face and allows my makeup to never fill cakey, which can be very easy for me. My skin is not problematic so usually I can wear less makeup.

Here’s what I use:

Evian Facial Water Spray

Evian Facial Water Spray: I literally have one of these in my makeup bag and one on my vanity. It’s a must in my beauty regimen. I use this before I apply my makeup and after.

Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer

Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer in Chocolate: This covers my dark circles so well and gives my skin an even complexion. I never leave the house without this.

Bare Minerals Touch Up Veil Powder

Bare Minerals Touch Up Veil Powder: I stumbled upon this while going with a friend to find her a moisturizer. I usually buy their products from Ulta, but had never gone in the stand alone store. They have so many options for my skin too!

Lorac Liquid Liner

Lorac Liquid Liner: Liquid liner has always been my go-to. It stays put and never smudges and since I already have dark circles so I need something that will stay put! I use this one now because I ran out of my other favorite. I bought this at Ulta when it was only $10!

Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lip Balm

Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lip Balm: I was so tired of using lip balms that would make my lips chapped after an hour of wearing them. As you know, I have dry skin so my lips are no different.

Afro puff and berry lips
