My Favorite Summer Makeup

This time of year, when the temps reach 100 daily,
I tend to wilt.
I remember the days when I would put on a
little moisturizer, lip gloss, and mascara and I was out the door.
That was way before 40 year old skin.
I try my best to still look natural, but it takes just a little more time and product.
I tend to use more of the under makeup than the makeup it self.

Here are my few simple summer products help me to look my best when the weather is hot and sticky.

These are my daytime products.
I try to use the lightest products possible.
Because nothing looks worse than sweaty, dripping make-up. 
(You know who you are and stop it.)

La Mer Soft Cream, lighter and perfect for the day under foundation.
I know, I know.
It's way to expensive.
I've tried everything, but it feels so wonderful.
Seriously, this stuff is amazing.
It is creamy and so soothing, and it lasts a really long time.
(I think, because it is so expensive, that I am always aware of the amount I use--
I've had this jar for about 6 months.)

La Mer Eye Balm Intense, light and smooth.  
This eye balm helps reduce puffiness and dryness.
Perfect for dry, hot weather.
It takes the circles under my eyes away!!
I'm for real when I say that I notice a difference right away.
Also lasts a really long time.

This day cream feels wonderful and I never go out without an SPF.
It doesn't feel heavy, but I just feel better knowing I'm wearing sunscreen.

The best foundation I think I have ever used.
This makeup provides a great foundation and is so smooth and light.
It is great in that it doesn't sit in your pores or fine lines.
That's important when you start to have them
(and they are not fun).

The finish is matte and it is ultra-light.  
The best part is that it stays where it is supposed to stay.
It feels amazing and the coverage is great.

This bronzer is amazing.
It is super fine milled and is so smooth.
Not too dark, but just enough bronze to look like I've been out in the sun instead of inside working.

Super fine and works wonders.
Keeps everything in its place.
Softens imperfections and smooths fine lines.
Perfect for hot summer days.

I usually keep everything simple during the summer.
In addition to my favorite face products I like to keep everything simple--
light gloss for my lips, my Perfekt  mascara, nude eyeshadow, and a light eyeliner.

What are your go-to products for summer?

  1. I have never bought La Mer but have heard so much about it…..I would love to try it. I just bought a few products from the Epicuren line - a daily moisturizer and a peel. I really like them so far. I'm all about diminishing those fine lines too! I love hearing about products other people use and like - thanks for sharing your list!
