Summer Makeup Essentials

Ah, sweet Summertime! Oh how I've missed you! I am ready for all that Summer brings. Picnics, 4th of July, and swimming! With Summer, brings heat and the possibility of your makeup breaking down. I have picked out a few of my favorite products that have helped my makeup stay put.

Face Primer: You know I love the Prime Time primer from Bare Minerals. It absorbs oil and keeps your face looking matte.

Foundation: In the summer, you want to get a new foundation to match your bronzed skin. I just got a new Mary Kay mineral foundation in Beige 2. (I was a Beige 1 in the Winter)

Blush: Blush is typically the first thing to leave the face on a sweaty day, so I love the Stainiac from The Balm. It gives a nice stain and looks very natural.

Eye Primer: I have really oily lids, and I found that The Balm's Put a Lid on it really stays in place and makes my shadows last longer.

Also in the summer you should invest in some good quality eye shadows. As you know, I love the Urban Decay Naked 2 palette, and Wet n Wild eyeshadows. Not only do they go on like a dream, with a primer, they stay put!

The Sumita and Urban Decay 24/7 liners go on and last very well!

The Rocket Volume mascara  by Maybelline, also doesn't flake and definitely lasts, and I don't even own the waterproof version!

There are many different kinds of setting sprays for your face, but I have always loved the ELF Makeup Mist and Set. This keeps my makeup in place and makes me look natural and not powdery.

The last thing you want is sunburned lips. I love the EOS lip balm in the lemon scent because it has SPF 15.

Lastly, you want a fun pop of color for your lips, and you know I love the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains. My color is rendezvous.

How do you keep your makeup looking fresh? Leave me a comment and let me know!
