Introducing easy summer beauty tips that will give you a fresh and natural impression, focusing on items that can be used in multiple ways, such as cream blush as lip tint and contour cream as eyeshadow color!
Ah, sunny, warm, and sometimes humid, summer days! The natural shimmering effect (a.k.a. sweat) can make our beauty and makeup routines a little more challenging. It was very hot and humid, and I was able to enjoy summer in NY. When I lived in LA, it was hot and dry. Coming back from the West Coast to the East Coast, Southeast Asia to New York, I learned a few things. And today, I want to share with you some easy, low-maintenance tips for achieving a fresh, natural look for summer.
A few things before we start… We’ve cut back on a lot of items in favor of multi-purpose items. For example, a cream blush that doubles as a lip tint, a contour cream that doubles as a soft eyeshadow, and a sunscreen that doubles as a makeup base and finishing powder. Not only does this save you time in the morning, it’s also travel-friendly, taking a less-is-more approach.
– Cream blush –
First step, cream cheek! A little goes a long way. You don’t need a brush or sponge, just use clean fingers to apply it smoothly. These two are my favorites and give a natural I-just-ran-a-mile flash cheek color.Creamy and silky, this Care Wise Cream Blush Contains completely green/clean ingredients.Lightweight and composable, this Giorgio Armani Neo Nude A-Blush A water-based liquid color that gives a healthy glow. Both cream blushes are long lasting and have a satin matte finish. And they are absolutely correct. Apply a small amount to your cheeks and blend gently. Use it on your lips as a finishing touch. Kill two birds with one stone! They are perfect lip tints!
– Sunscreen –
Protect, protect, protect! Using sunscreen is very important. The two are amazing, they serve the same purpose but are different.
my Biosanth Squalane + Mineral SPF 45 I use sunscreen every morning! If you’ve been on my beauty journey with me, it’s no surprise how much I love Biossance and its products. When I did, I was so excited! When it comes to sunscreen, I don’t like sticky or strongly scented products. This sunscreen is lightweight, non-sticky, and leaves no white residue when applied. It also works as a primer to set up your makeup routine.
Although highly recommended, I have never reapplied sunscreen at noon. My sunscreen is usually a cream formula, so I avoid reapplying it because I don’t want to wear makeup again. drum roll… Super goop! Invincible Setting Powder SPF 45 Powder + brush type makes it easy to reapply and reapply during the day. Both skin and makeup are smooth! Smooths imperfections and minimizes oil and shine with a soft, matte finish.
– Contour cream –
Next is the contour cream! Doubles as a soft eyeshadow color! Again, no brush or sponge needed. Start with a very small amount and use your fingertips to work it into the hollows of your cheeks. Both contour creams can be layered, so start with a small amount and add more for deeper shade.this Armani Neo Nude A-Contour The cream helps to sculpt and define effortlessly without leaving any obvious traces of makeup. Illamasqua Contouring Gel Sculpt A gel formula contouring stick with a lightweight, matte formula that glides effortlessly and can be layered for deeper shades.
– Texture spray –
Hair done! To achieve a natural textured look, I rely heavily on dry shampoos and texturing sprays.I can’t live without these two. I have a full size version at home and a travel size version when traveling.I wash my hair 3 times a week and use this living proof perfect hair day dry shampoo Between. Absorbs and removes sebum, sweat, and odors with a light, refreshing scent. There was a visible difference in my hair the moment I applied the dry shampoo. A sense of volume and texture are up at once!
and everyday i use this Oribe Impermeable Moisture-Proof SpraySpray after curling hair and combing with fingers. A moisture blocking spray that provides light hold and texture. Lots of texture, actually! I always carry a travel size in my bag for refreshing texture and volume throughout the day.
– Afternoon Refresh –
Two favorites I use to refresh my look without moving my makeup all day are my Tacha oil blotting sheet When Biosanth Squalane + Micronutrient Fine Mist! Tatcha sheets made from 100% abaca leaves are extremely soft to the touch and absorb excess sebum. Even better, they don’t interfere with the makeup already on my face and don’t strip the skin of essential moisture.
I love using mists in any season. It’s the perfect way to boost hydration without feeling oily or heavy. Morning, noon and night, this mist delivers moisture to your skin with an ultra-fine moisturizing spray.
