While I’m by no means a makeup artist, I am a girl who absolutely loves to play around with makeup.
It’s fun to experiment with different eye shadow palates, funky eyeliners and bright lipsticks…but at the end of the day, a gorgeous face of makeup starts with the skin. While I wouldn’t consider my skin to be problematic, it’s definitely not perfect either. If you think I have (close to) perfect skin, it’s because I do a good job of faking it! I mix and match a number of different products to achieve a subtle, dewy glow.
There’s several products in my arsenal that go into my daily makeup and beauty routine. If you don’t wear a lot of makeup, it may seem like I wear a lot of it…but each product serves an important purpose. It really only takes me a few minutes to apply. Trust me, I don’t have time (or energy) in the morning to spend an hour applying makeup! Nonetheless, I my list of summer beauty essentials go on quick and easily.
So…today’s post is actually a little bit different, because I’m sharing a stop-motion video I made to illustrate what products I use. Keep in mind, this is my first attempt, so it’s a little…rough. It’s also the first video on my newly created YouTube channel! I learned a lot in the process, and can’t wait to give it another go.
Without further ado, I bring you my round up of summer beauty essentials!
