Hi Everyone, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. This is my very first blog post and I am so excited to share all that I am passionate about with you!!! I have been wanting to do this for many years.
The question I get asked the most is what kind of make-up do you wear? Someone will ask me that on a daily basis so today I want to share some of the beauty products that I’m excited to use this spring and summer. First, I’ll start with Rodan+Fields REVERSE BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 50+ SUNSCREEN because SPF is an absolute MUST –not just during the summer, but year round. I love this product because it works perfect under your make-up. However, while Licorice and Mulberry extracts help to brighten dull-looking skin it is not waterproof. Keep one in your purse or beach bag so you can re-apply during the day. Speaking of waterproof products, I LOVE Supergoop! x Milly Defense Refresh Setting Mist Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 50 It is my GO-TO during the summer. I do use it year round but more in the spring and summer as it is Water & Sweat resistant. I use about 7-8 sprays at the end of my make-up routine everyday.
When it comes to a make-up routine I like QUICK AND EASY! My daily spring/summer make-up routine goes like this! (Of course, after I have finished my daily regimen and applied my SPF) CC CREAM Complete Correction Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 40 Beige then I follow with SOLEIL TAN DE CHANEL Bronzing Makeup Base using a big powder brush. It is a cream so use sparingly. I love the TOM FORD Shade and Illuminate because I do not have time for all that concealer nor do I want all of that on my face. I use it on my finger to draw the line then dab it with a Beauty blender until I get it smooth. I add a little blush(keep this in my purse) –using your thumb and forefinger make a circle and put it on the fat of your cheek. That is where you apply blush. I use Nars highlighting palette for my eyeshadow then use as my highlighter.
I have used Merle Norman Merle Norman AGE DEFYING LIPLINER in cocoas EVERYDAY since high school with any color lipstick. My go to right now is NEUTROGENA MoistureSmooth Color Stick Thanks to Ashley, one of my tennis team mates. Everyone looks great in this color:) I do add to my make routine when I go out on the weekends or for a special function.! ENJOY!
