The Summer Routine
A new season brings on a new routine. This new weather forecast has catalyzed a change, making shifts in both my skincare and beauty routines. I have rounded up all of my summer favorites for you all, to show you my mix of beauty products and non toxic products. For me, summer pushes the idea of simplicity and light. Here are my daytime summer favorite for that glowy happy face you dream of.
Summer brings the heat, aka no way I am wearing heavy foundation.
For me, skincare is my foundation. My Alitura Naturals Moisturizer helps me keep my complexion glowing and clear to help me avoid foundations and concealers all together. This moisturizer combines all natural ingredients including royal jelly, aloe vera, and cacao butter to supercharge my skin. Literal skin superfoods.
In desperate times, I reach for RMS Beauty's concealer in shade 22 because we all need a little help sometimes. This natural and light concealer has nourishing ingredients that both cover up and heal imperfections. It works like a dream.
For kissable summer lips, I reach for Glossier's balm dot com in coconut or the infamous Rosebud Balm. These leave your lips glossy, plump, and yummy. Not to mention they last for hours. You will never buy another lip balm ever again.
SPF is the golden rule; it is something that everyone should wear rain or shine. Drunk Elephant's Tinted SPF does the job. Its protective, its tinted, it doesn't clog pores. Check, check, and check. It is all you need.
Blush is like a coffee, but for your skin. Ever want to wake up your complexion? Use blush! It looks like you have just woken up from a nap. I use Cloud Paint via Glossier and apply it to the apples of my cheeks. I get complements every time I wear it.
I am so picky about my mascara and I recently purchased Milk Makeup's Kush Mascara. It gives you everything that you could ever hope for. Lengthening, voluminizing, and thickening. Perfect for everyday, I'll be wearing it all summer long.
Bite Beauty lip products have become my new obsession. The Lip pencil in shade 16 is my everyday lip color. It is the perfect nude rose color, plus it is made of non toxic ingredients. For me, thats a win win. I have already gone back and bought the same pencil again because I lost my first one and realized I couldn't do without it.
I love a red lip against my freckles and bare summer skin. Chanel's Rouge CoCo lipstick in shade Gabrielle is perfect to wear just with a strong brow and glowy skin.
For my body, I love just simply using cacao butter and vitamin e oil to keep my skin soft all summer long. Its so easy and isnt filled wit chemicals or filler founds in many body lotions on the market. These oils and butters have one ingredient and get the job done. I love the way my skin feels when I use these!
My go-to scent is Plush from Made in New York. I like my scents to be sweet yet sexy. Plush has warm notes of vanilla, jasmine, musk, and rose. Its my favorite scent ever. It's the perfect scent for summer nights.
Another thing I use on a daily basis is rose water. This mist creates a dewy finish to my skin, not to mention it is full of vitamins to clear and moisturize. I am a sucker for rosey scented objects as well, so this wins. I love Ilia beauty's Moon Dots highlighter, it's easy to apply and bounces the light off your face for a glistening effect. Also Tarte's Hoola Bronzer is easy and light to fake that summer tan.
These are my basic summer essentials. Perfect for glowy summer skin, that will last you all season long. I love just letting my skin breathe, wearing just a lip, brow, and blush. I love looking "done but undone" or the division between perfect makeup and fresh faced. Sort of messy but also glamourous. It's the everyday easy going summer look,
