Summer Make Up Routine

I'm always so excited for Summer to roll around for many different reasons, but especially because it means I get to switch up my beauty routine.  During the warmer months, I always want that sun-kissed glow, without damaging my skin.  As much as I love to lay in the sun, I'm always careful to protect my face with SPF.  Because of that, my face doesn't always get the glow I'm looking for, but throwing on a little tinted moisturizer + bronzer does the trick!  Keeping my make up light + airy and adding a little brightness + shimmer gives me the perfect amount of warmth.  And my three favorite finishing touches: YSL 'Sheer Candy' in Lush Cocnut (#1) is the most amazing lip color for keeping a  neutral look, but giving your lips a bronzed pout.  The 'barely there' color is the perfect addition to the other items pictured.  2 - white nails.  I looove the clean, simplistic look white or nude nails!  They compliment a tan so well and go with any outfit.  And 3 - My favorite Dolce & Gabbana Perfume.  I love this warm, beachy scent and wear this almost every single day.  I have so many others that I love, but this one will always be my signature!

I've listed the beauty products below, in the order that I use them, as well as my shade:

3. Bronzing Powder {Laguna} + Brush
4. Blush {Orgasm}
7. Blackout Mascara {Black}
8. Brow Wiz Brow Pencil {not pictured above, but can't live without. Dark Brown}
9. YSL 'Sheer Candy' {Lush Coconut, sometimes I also pair with Cool Guava}
10. Deborah Lippmann {Amazing Grace + Before He Cheats}
11. Dolce & Gabbana 'The One' Perfume

This routine will definitely be my go-to while in Mexico later this week!  Only using less than 10 beauty products and forgetting the heavy foundation and concealer is such a nice refresher for warmer months!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.


  1. I loooove being able to ditch the heavy stuff during the summer! Life gets so much easier. I've really grown to like the Complexion Rescue...my skin had to get used to it at first, but now it's the perfect amount of coverage!

  2. Your summer beauty routine sounds great! When it's summer, I always change my product for less "heavy" products! Instead of foundation/bbcream I only use a moisturizer


  3. I love Bareminerals complexion rescue! It is just so light but it really covers everything!



  4. I love summer time because you can achieve the look you wish in such an easy way and the products are always so much lighter than in the winter. I will have to look into your beauty routine for sure!!

  5. Great makeup! The shades are all so perfect for summer.

  6. Ooo def wanna try the bare minerals tinted cream with the brush!
