Summer Makeup Favourites

well, it has been a very hot summer so far, in fact, I don’t remember the last time it was that hot and sunny for such a long period of time. it’s not my favourite weather and I hope it cools down very soon. due to the hot temperatures, I cut down my makeup routine to the bare minimum. there’s nothing worse than the feeling of makeup melting down your face. as much as I love a minimal makeup routine, I can’t wait to finally be able to not worry about my eyebrows melting down to my cheeks and my lipstick ending up everywhere. since the hot period has been lasting way longer than I ever wanted and longer than I should, I perfected it and I thought for the last breath of summer which hopefully ends by September 1st on the dot, I would share my summer makeup favourites with you.
there’s no way I can deal with a proper foundation in this heat which is why I have switches to a cc cream and it’s the only and only your skin but better cc cream from it cosmetics. it has a very light coverage and feels very comfortable on my skin. it doesn’t cover my freckles but makes my skin tone look even. adding a bit of the hourglass ambient lighting powder on top and I’m good to go. its very light and really blurs over the cc cream. it also doesn’t add heaviness to my base and lets my skin breathe. even though the sweat after commuting to work would be enough to look glowy, I can’t go without highlighter. lately, I have been using Becca champagne pop again and the peachy glow it gives if perfect for any hot summers day.
I usually love using eyeshadows but again, in this heat, I feel like its all too much which is why I go very simple on the eyes. mainly just a bit of bronzer in the crease and some mascara. lately, I have been loving the l’oréal telescopic mascara. it really gives me long lashes and doesn’t smudge in this heat. when I feel like wearing any sort of lip product, I have been using the Huda beauty liquid lipstick in bombshell. it feels very light on the lips and doesn’t dry them out and it looks great with slightly tanned skin.
do you have any tips for makeup in this heat? let me know and let’s hope we can all wear our dark reds again very soon.
