Current Summer Makeup Routine

I always have a specific type of makeup look come summer. I love the look of bronzy, glowing skin! It is so hot during the summer that I really don’t like to pile on too much makeup. I try to keep it light while still getting the coverage that I want!

{Last year’s summer beauty faves.}

So here we go-my current favorite products:

Moisturizer & Eye Cream:


This  Tatcha Water Cream is perfect for Summer because it is so lightweight! It absorbs so quickly so you can get started on your makeup right away. This eye cream has been my favorite lately. I use it day & night.

Cream Highlight prior to Foundation:


I have gone back to using MAC strobe cream and I forgot how much I love this product! It brightens your skin and gives you the glow from within look. I apply this after my moisturizer and before foundation. But you can also mix it with foundation (which is stunning) or place it on top of your foundation.

Foundation & Concealer:


I have been obsessed with this Wet N Wild Photo Focus foundation for Summer! It’s been my go-to because it doesn’t feel heavy but still has great coverage. Also it’s under $6 (what?!). I can’t find any concealer that beats Tarte Shape Tape, so I’m still using that for under eyes and highlight. I use shade light-medium.



I’ve been loving this powder. It gives extra coverage if you need/want it, but you can also wear it on its own with a little concealer too!

Bronzer & Blush:


During the Summertime I love a bronzer that has a glow to it. This one is soooo good! I’ve been loving this Nars liquid blush in the shade luster. It is just the prettiest natural flush to the cheeks. I always use cream products before any powders!

Cream & Powder Highlight:


The Almay Highlighting Duo has been my favorite cream highlighter for over foundation. It’s so pretty and looks amazing layered with Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal. I absolutely have been loving this combo!



I love the fine tip of this brow pencil. I always try different brow products but I’ve repurchased this a couple times now!



I always throw some of my bronzer on my eyelids if I’m in a hurry and that’s my eyeshadow. If I’m spending more time the Almay shadow squads have been my favorites-especially Own It and Pure Gold Baby. They’re gorgeous, bronzy, and super pigmented! I also have rediscovered an old favorite-Bobbi Brown sparkle eyeshadow in cement. My absolute favorite way to use this is just with my finger pressing the shadow on top of my eyeshadow look. It adds the most gorgeous sparkle!

Mascara & Eyeliner:


 I go with the Lash paradise first for volume and then Telescopic to separate and lengthen the lashes. For eyeliner my ride or die is Lancome Le Crayon in black ebony. I use it for waterline or on the lid and smudge it out.



Nude, glossy lips are my favorite for Summer. My current lip combo is to line with this liner in Rockin Rose, add this nude lipstick in Naturally Chic all over the lips, put a touch of this lighter nude in the center of the lip for dimension. Top with this NYX gloss in Creme Brulee. It seems like a lot of steps haha but is soooo stunning on the lips!



I finish off with Rose Water spray and then a setting spray to set everything!

Let us know if you try any of these products out or if they are also some of your current go-to’s!
