Glowing Summer Routine

beauty, Fashion

Hey!

I’m going to give you the inside scoop on my latest simple makeup routine. I appreciate the coverage and look these products give and totally support the brands! I first start out by washing my face with First Aid Beauty face cleanser. I then use the same brand moisturizer (highly suggest this brand if you have dry/oily skin). After I’m done prepping my face for my daytime makeup i use the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation using my beauty blender. This foundation goes on thin and allow’s you to build if needed. After my foundation is on, I use the Nars Concealer around my nose and and blemishes I’d like to fix. The Nars Concealer creates a good highlight while giving you coverage in your look. To finish off my face, I go in with my Clinique Chubby Stick. The stick is very dark and will work for all skin colours if you’re blending your makeup well. This makeup look can be finished off with mascara and you’re ready to go! This makeup routine is for summer, when you don’t feel like putting on alot and want to feel light and summery. I’m currently on the hunt for a good highlighter for my skin colour! If you have any suggestion please comment ūüôā

IM BACK! 

So I’ve been experimenting with highlighters and have the ultimate guide to get the best highlight on your face. So before I would just highlight with a concealer to exaggerate where the light hits naturally on my face; And would never try the glittery highlights. ¬†But then I discovered BECCA, E.L.F and Laura Mercier. Now if you want a cheaper option than $50 go with E.L.F cosmetics. My favourite is the Laura Mercier because it gives you a natural glow and a little goes a long way. BECCA highlighters are great too.. don’t get me wrong. It’s just I find with my skin colour (tan) Laura Mercier look very natural and comes in golden shades compared to BECCA which comes in lighter shades. Take a look below at my favourite options and feel free to comment your favourites!

  1. BECCA- Golden Bronze Pearl

2. Laura Mercier- Medium Illuminator 

3. E.L.F- Moonlight pearls Highlighter
