You guys! Today I learned (again) that taking selfies is hard work. I wanted to take a “quick” selfie to showcase my ridiculously simple summer makeup routine for this blog post. However, the process was not quick. Is it normal that I took about 100 shots of myself? If not, I think I need to work on my selfie skills.
During the summertime, I tend to be pretty low-maintenance (by my standards) when it comes to my everyday makeup. At this time of year, my skin has a little bit of a natural tan. Thanks to the heat, it also has a natural glow! As a result, it doesn’t take a lot of work (or too many products) to make me feel ready to take on the day. I just need a few simple products to enhance my natural features to bring my confidence up and creatively express myself through makeup application – using eyelash products from Xlash is one of my favourite things to apply!
My Simple Summer Makeup Routine:
I always start with a primer to prep my skin. I use a makeup sponge to help blend it in evenly. Next, I use a CC Cream to even out my skin tone, as well as start to cover up some of my imperfections. I apply a little bit to my checks and forehead and blend it all in with my sponge. To set the makeup and enhance my natural glow, I apply a generous amount of bronzer to my skin.
For my simple summer makeup routine, I don’t do much with eyes. Instead of using a traditional eyeshadow, I apply a bit of blush and highlighter to my eyelids. Next, I add a few layers of my favourite mascara to add curl and length to my lashes.
To finish off the look, I add my current favourite blush to the apples of my cheek and dust some highlighter just above that. Next, I fill out my brows a little bit and finish off the look with a swipe of lip balm with SPF.
That’s it! If you’d like to recreate the look I’m showing off in these lovely selfies, everything is available on Amazon.ca.
