Every season I make a few tweaks to my beauty regime, with both skincare and makeup. With the heat and humidity getting stronger by the day, it only felt natural to hit refresh on my daily beauty products. Unlike in the past when I ended up covering my skin in powder or too heavy makeup, I’m focused on letting my skin breathe, even with makeup on. I’m striving for that perfect barely-there, dewy glow and I think I’ve found the makeup products to get it just right. You may notice I like to stick to my tried and true brands like Fresh, Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier and Clé de Peau, while taking the opportunity to select new fresh summertime colors.
Let’s start with one of my newest obsessions, Bobbi Brown Cheek Glow Palette in “Pearl”. This might be the most perfect combo for a rosy-cheek glow. This creamy combo glides on the skin so smooth, adding just the right amount of color to the apples of my cheeks and a hint of illuminator on my cheek bones.
No shocker here that I have one of Fresh’s Sugar Tinted Lip Treatments on my list, but this time around it’s the Tulip shade. This one has a bit more pigment than my everyday “Rose” one, with a slightly brighter pink color to it. I’ve said it before, but I always have one of these on me- they even look great with completely bare skin. I swear that a little color on the lips goes a long way. All of my friends and family are now just as addicted as I am!
Last week I talked about my love for Clé de Peau Beauté tinted cream with SPF. It’s a trifecta made up of a concealer, moisturizer and spf, all in one, with added age-defying benefits, too! This is my first step in the makeup routine and I just add a tiny bit all over my skin, or in certain areas where I want a little bit of coverage.
I use just a tiny amount of Bobbi Brown’s Skin Foundation Stick to my nose, chin and forehead to limit any shininess that comes with the territory of living somewhere hot. This stuff is great because it lasts all day long and is incredibly moisturizing and smooth, so it keeps the dewy look of the skin that we want.
The last and final product is Laura Mercier ‘Mosaic’ Shimmer Bloc “Golden Mosaic”. This gives the ultimate sun-kissed gleam to the face, blending in golden shades to make it look like you spent a few hours at the beach and walked away with the perfect tan. I lightly dust on my forehead, cheeks and chin to give an all-over glow.
Often in the past, I would use too much makeup when trying to create a no-makeup makeup look. Seems like it should be pretty simple right? But it’s all about getting the products right, and with just a few, you should be able to get the minimal look that’s much easier said than done. The key is to not focus too much on covering everything. We all have impurities in our skin, but we’re the only ones picking them apart. I never notice the things my girlfriends say they dislike about their skin, and vice versa. Once you can get over that it’s not about being “perfect” or creating a flawless complexion, you’ll start to notice how beautiful you are with what you naturally have.
