Summer is finally here, and this is the perfect time to look like a goddess and rock that summer glow. Some of us are looking forward to heading to the beach and catching the perfect tan, while the rest of us are worried about not looking like we just came from the gym. Yes! That would be me for sure. So, what do I do to keep my makeup lasting all day long and glowing during the summer?
I always start off by prepping my face with my usual beauty regiment and primer. I use M.A.C’s prep and prime primer and let it soak into my skin for a while before applying my foundation. While my primer is absorbing into my skin, I move on to my brows and use Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Dipbrow promenade in “Ebony”. By then my primer has settled in, and I use M.A.C’s MatchMaster in 9.0 as my foundation. I highlight with L.A. Girls’ concealer in “Cool Tan,” light contour with M.A.C’s Blush “Sketch” and use “Devil” for my blush. For the GLOW, I use M.A.C’s “Cheeky Bronze,” and it’s perfect for dark skin!
On my eyes, I kept it simple and used M.A.C’s neutral palette, NARS and “All That Glitter” in the inner tear duct. I add a wing (didn’t extend much) and lashes. To finish off the look, I lined my lips with Chesnut, Snob lipstick and topped it off with Spite lipgloss (all M.A.C products). Of course, I set my makeup with Urban’s Decay’s finishing spray. Now, I’m summering ready!
