Summertime and the living is hectic, but I still have to look good!
My criteria for a summer look:
- Takes less than 10 minutes
- Includes sun protection
- Lasts as long as I do — and I work long days outdoors in the wind and sun and flying glitter
So, these are a few of my current favorite things:
Revlon Photoready BB Cream
At last! A drugstore product that makes my skin look luminous and has SPF 30! While it doesn’t have all the benefits of a true BB cream, it’s good enough for every day wear in the park. I layer it over my real sunscreen.
L’Oreal TruMatch Concealer Crayon
It’s an amazingly good match for my coloring, blends beautifully and lasts all day! Love this!
Maybelline’s Limited Edition 24 Hour Cream Gel Shadow in Sandy Shores
These have been going like hotcakes in my part of town… I finally nabbed the last pot of Sandy Shores after checking my local Target, Walgreens, Rite Aid, CVS…I found it in a CVS in another neighborhood! And I can see why it’s so popular! It’s a very flattering pale yellow that flashes mint green. GORGEOUS! Plus, it spreads easily and stays put all day.
K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner Pen
Yes, I still love this pen! (Check out my original review here.) It’s so easy to use, gives a very fine line and lasts until you take it off. In black, luscious deep black.
CoverGirl LashBlast Mascara
This is my tried and true mascara. It doesn’t clump, flake off, smudge, or otherwise misbehave. I’ve tried a lot of mascaras (including very expensive ones) and I always come back to LashBlast… plus, at this price, you can actually afford to replace as often as you should!
Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Color Stick
I like all the lippie crayons I’ve tried — from Revlon to CoverGirl to Nars… but I love Neutrogena’s colors and Fresh Papaya is my favorite. It doesn’t last longer than a few hours, but it’s foolproof to apply even when you’re not looking in a mirror. Now, if only it had real SPF…
What’s your go-to look for summer?
