Summer Beauty Philosophy


Last week I had an interview with thegloss.com and they asked me what my summer beauty philosophy is, as well as what my favorite beauty products are. 

I thought it would be nice to elaborate on this! So here goes it!

As I mentioned in my interview, I believe less is more. I have never been super excited about wearing make up. When I thought it was "cool" to wear makeup (I guess that was in high school?), I would always wear a lot of black eye liner and mascara. My idea of being cool has changed quite a bit since then! :) Not to say I don't still love a smokey eye for the right occasion! 

On most days, I want to get as much sleep as possible (I'm not a morning person!) and I don't want to wake up earlier just to spend more time getting ready. So, my routine usually consists of swipping a little bit of Clinique Concealer under my eyes and brushing on some Mac Blush in Plum Foolery (I put it on my cheeks, a swipe over my nose, and I also put a little bit right under the arch of my eyebrows - some how that seems to brighten me up!).  

When I want to look a little more alive I add Mac Mineralize Mutli-Effect Lash in Charged Black

My favorite lipstick at the moment is Lancome Shine Lover Lipstick in Plum D’audice. It has just the right amount of shine, and is super light weight. 

I don't use make up everyday, but I always make sure to moisturize! Currently in my cabinet I have these two creams (below) that I alternate between for daytime.  

Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer (Drugstores)  Aveeno Positively Ageless Youth Perfecting Moisturizer (www.aveeno.com)

 


Here's a picture of me right before my wedding using all of the make up I mentioned above! I hope this was a little bit helpful, if not entertaining!
