Everyday Face: Summer 2016

Monday, August 29, 2016

Yes, I'm still here. All is well. Just been a little M.I.A. lately.


With the puppy in the mix my mornings have been a little more chaotic than usual. That means less time getting myself ready and more time playing with her before work. I've had to pare down my makeup to something quick and easy that makes me look pulled together in a flash.

Bronzer: Nars Laguna. A staple for a reason. I generously wash it all over. It warms up the face easily and is pretty hard to mess up.

Blush: Laura Geller Blush-n-Brighten in Pink Grapefruit. This is one of the top 3 most used blushes in my whole collection. It makes your cheeks look healthy with a flush of color and hint of shimmer. 

Highlighter/Eyeshadow: Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop. Double duty products are great when you're trying to get done quick. This one is perfect for a stunning glow on your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, and your lids. Soooo pretty and so easy!

Mascara: Maybelline Lash Sensational. I've lost track of how many time I've repurchased this one. The wand is perfect and the formula doesn't smudge, so two coats of this and my lashes are lookin' good. 

Brows: NYX Tinted Brow Mascara. I bought this in blonde and really liked it, but it was a little too light for me so I repurchased it in brunette (better!). This is a great product if you want to skip filling in your brows with a pencil and want a little more natural, but still finished look. Really like this one.

Lips: Clinique Beige Pop. I don't think I've ever loved a lipstick more than this one. It's perfect. The color is nude, but not too nude to wash you out. It lasts for hours (even through coffee!) and it's super comfortable on the lips. It might be the first lipstick that I ever fully finish - I use it that much!

I was skipping concealer for a few weeks (whaaaat?!), but when I did use it I was reaching for Maybelline's Instant Age Rewind. It quick to blend out, but still has good coverage, so I always have one on hand. 

So that's it- quick and easy for a pulled together face. It takes me between 5 and 10 minutes to do whole thing most days, and that's not bad in my book. What are your favorite products for a quick makeup look?
