My Summer Makeup Routine


It has been almost a week since I graduated, and I must say that life without high school feels pretty good! :D
So, today I have for you my Summer Makeup Routine. I have found some new techniques that have been working pretty well with me and are worthy sharing!

Plaid shirt: Garage; Bracelet: Francesca's

This is not what I wear every single day, I usually do versions of it, changing the lip color or an eyeshadow, but the idea is pretty much the same!  :D

Le Face

1. Foundation/Tinted Moisturizer: Apply MAC Studio Moisture Tint in Light with my RealTechniques Expert Face Brush
2. Concealer: Apply MAC's Studio Finish Concealer in NC15 under the eyes and anywhere you want to cover up with a concealer brush (I use Sephora's #100)
3. Setting your concealer: Apply undereye setting powder by E.L.F. with a Sigma E60, or any shader brush. ( I found that this helps me keep the concealer where it should be and it is pretty cheap
4. Primer: Apply Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion on eyelids

Les Eyes

1. All over lid shadow: Apply the light eyeshadow from the NYX Love in Florence pallet in Gelato For Two, using a Sigma E60
2. Crease shadow: Time to add depth to your eyes. For this makeup in particular I used MAC's Brown Down with a Sigma E25 ( I usually go for a denser blending brush for my crease)
3. The liner: I have recently stopped using eyeliner and now I am only using black eyeshadow, that way if I mess up, I can just smoke it out and looks just as good. ;)
Here I used NYX Black and applied with a Sigma E65
4. Top Lashes: Apply Maybelline's Mega Plush Volum' Express Mascara to top lashes only
5. Bottom Lashes: apply the lower lashes brush of the Falsies Big Eyes Mascara to you bottom lashes. ( I feel like the smaller brush gives me more precision and doesn't put too much product on my bottom lashes, since they are pretty long)

Les Lips & Cheeks

1. Blush: Apply Nars blush in Mata Hari (a gorgeous pale pink color) with a Sigma F40
2. Lipstick: Apply Givenchy lipstick in Fuchsia Irr├ęsistible (205). BTW, I am in love with this lipstick! The case is made a legit leather, totally worth the splurge! It is super matte but also super moisturizing!

That is all! Hope you guys liked the post and make sure to tell me your everyday makeup looks or tell me if you're recreated this one! I would love to know.

  1. RealTechniques brushes are the best! I can't imagine using any others, they're so soft. Great post. :)
