It’s mid May and here in Texas that means that summer is pretty much here and no matter where you live it’s well on it’s way! Summer is the perfect time to scale back on your makeup–no one wants droves of sweat wearing off your foundation and eye shadow and making your mascara streak! Ick! I want to share my No Makeup Makeup for Summer that I do whenever it gets super hot, I have a splash park date, or even when I am just going to be around the house all day so I want to feel and look nice without all the fuss!
The first step to a no fuss summer look is to have great skin since you won’t be able to cover up the flaws as well with this easy, five minute look.
Lately I’ve gotten the chance to try out Aveeno Positively Radiant Intensive Night Cream. I just smooth on a little onto my face (other than my t-zone since I have big time combination skin) and it does all the work! It’s been a great way to help get my skin ready for this summer over the past several weeks!
The next step is the makeup–because even with a no makeup look if you want to look “put together” you will need makeup! You might remember my review of Iman BBCreme a few weeks ago (you can see of their two darker shades pictured above) and how I thought it would be perfect for me this summer! After using your nighttime moisturizer a BBCreme will provide the perfect light coverage you need and also if you get one with a built in SPF like Iman’s it’s the perfect solution for a beautiful summer face!
Shortly afterwords I was sent this package of awesome summer beauty products! When going for a no makeup look you want to keep things nice and simple. A swipe of a fresh colored lipstick, smudged black eyeliner, one coat of waterproof mascara, and a touch of blush or bronzer is all you need! It takes 5 minutes and you’re left with a look that is sweet, simple, and fresh!
