Summer Makeup Essentials

It is officially summertime and I don't know about you, but I'm PUMPED!

And with summer weather comes summer heat. Which doesn't fare well with someone who sweats as much as I do. This means my makeup needs a little bit of a modification.

You want to look carefree and feel carefree in the summer. So the key is minimal makeup that makes you look like you have a natural glow (all while making sure your makeup doesn't melt.) 

Step 1: Urban Decay NAKED SKIN BB Cream

This stuff will literally change your life. I've used other BB creams before, but this stuff is so lightweight and gives you just as much coverage as you need for the heat. My other favorite thing? It only comes in one shade and actually adjusts to your skin tone. It's the best.

Step 2: Urban Decay NAKED FLUSHED Pallet
Blush, bronzer, and highlighter in one pallet? SAY NO MORE. I use this pallet to highlight and contour as well as for blush. It's a one-stop-shop for the perfect summer glow. 

Step 3: Too Faced Sun Bunny Natural Bronzer
I'm a bronzer fanatic. So after I use a matte bronzer, like the one above, I like to add a little more sparkle and color to my cheeks, without taking it overboard. Plus, it's summer. A little bit of bronze is all you need.

Step 4: Too Faced Summer Eyes Pallet
As if everything Too Faced produces doesn't turn to gold, this pallet is PERFECTION. Such cute summer-y fun colors for the perfect look for day or night. 

Step 5: Revlon Colorstay Eyeliner & CoverGirl LashBlast Waterproof Mascara
In the summer, it's gotta be waterproof. (I wear waterproof ALL the time, but it is necessary in the summer.) You can't have your makeup melting everywhere.

5 simple steps to getting the perfect easy summer look!

What are your favorite summer beauty products?
