≫ Summer Make-Up Routine ≪

Lately I’ve been trying to force myself to limit my routine to just a couple products. This is hard for me if you have been following me for some time you'll know I use to like to go all out with my makeup. For example...

I start saying, oh, I’ll just cover up my under eye circles, and then I need mascara, and then maybe just fill in the brows a bit…and next thing I know I’ve been in front of the mirror for 20 minutes or so. As of recently... aka the last two years,  I’ve been experimenting with a more minimal look to get out the door on time in the morning & get the rest of my work morning routine done. 

I always start off with my Derma E face sunscreen and after I wash my face and as I get our two kitties their food I let it set. I then go in with my GlamGlow illuminating moisturizer for a little extra highlight! I love the scent of it as well.. Reminds me of yellow skittles!  

I have an oily complexion normally but I think while being pregnant it has gotten a lot better! I also use a BB Cream by Marcelle! I love that it isn't full coverage because I use to slather on full coverage foundation when I was young & I feel it ruined my pores! Since simplifying my make-up routine & getting some laster treatments done, I feel like my pores look less dilated and less prone to getting horrendous acne spots from clogged pores.  


Once I have blended in the tinted BB Cream I follow up with my NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. I was always against paying the pricey price tag for this concealer but once I did after receiving at Gift Card.. It changed my concealer game!! With it's medium to full coverage, being buildable and easy to blend.. I didn't have to use so much concealer on my face! It felt like a miracle when I first tried it. I even went to my spouse and told him because I was so excited! It looks more natural than the drugstore concealer I was using that would oxidize. 
After my BB cream I would swipe under my eye area,  around my nose where it's a little more red, my dark spots & acne scaring. I always use my real techniques complexion sponge. 

I love to set my face with Laura Mercier's Translucent Setting Powder while using the complexion sponge on the flat edge while damp because it gives the best finish & leaves my skin looking natural and flawless. 
Moving onto brows & lashes, I like to keep it super simple. I ran out of my Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer and just started using eyeshadow to fill my brows in like I use in the old days and I actually prefer it more! I use my KVD Shade & Light palette and for my lashes I use my Lancôme Monsiur Mascara

Typing this out it seems like a lot of steps but I promise it takes me 10 minutes max! Super quick & easy.. Maybe since I've been doing it for so long it's just a piece of cake for me. 
I like to finish of my face with Burberry Highlighter & some blush. The Burberry Highlighter completely changed my glow-up game! I use to use the Becca highlighters religiously but  I was graciously sent Burberry's Summer Essentials. The pressed highlighter has been getting love from me every day! The one I use is Rose Gold. As for blush it changes every other day so I didn't want to include a specific since I have multiple brands I use! 

I hope you enjoyed reading about what I put on my face! I really like this routine. If I opt for a foundation I always use the  Giorgio Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Foundation. I love the finish but I found out recently the ingredients are not very good for you! I made my own report on EWG Skin Deep If you look at my old skin care routine You will see why I started researching the products I used on my face. If you download the IOS/Android App called Healthy Living you will understand why products shouldn't be used on your body! It's scary. 

Question: If you could only use ONE product, what would it be?
Mine would be concealer hands down because my scaring/dark spots are my biggest insecurity.
