Many of you have been asking for makeup product recommendations for the warm weather so I have put together a list of my current favorites in this post. While I can’t say I’ve found all my HG products yet but these are a few I’m loving the most at the moment….
Click the names below to go to each product’s detailed review and swatches :
NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer SPF 30 : I fell in love with this tinted moisturizer the minute I tried it! The finish is gorgeous as it gives me a healthy glow without being sparkly or greasy. Not only does it offer impressive coverage but is also super lightweight (yet hydrating) with SPF protection. I found my perfect match in the shade St. moritz for my fair-medium NC 25-ish skintone.
Reviva Labs Makeup primer – Although I prefer tinted moisturizers in summers, this is my go-to primer for the days I’m wearing a foundation. It has a lightweight, gel-like consistency and my dry skin loves that it is not super mattifying like most of the primers and feels more like a serum. The primer just slips on and absorbs instantly to make my skin feel satiny smooth and also softens the look of my pores. It really helps my makeup stay put all day.
Tarte SmolderEYES Amazonian Clay Waterproof Liners – These chubby eye pencils have a soft, creamy texture that glides on without tugging but the waterproof formula stays put and doesn’t budge even on the lower lashline…..perfect for summers! I have 6 of these from one of Tarte’s holiday sets and all the shades are easy-to-wear and beautiful.
Sephora Double Contouring Cream blush in Coral flush – Coral Flush is a gorgeous peachy pink with gold shimmer. Yes, this is almost a perfect dupe of the ever popular NARS orgasm at half the price! In fact, I like it even better than Orgasm because it has less shimmer and the cream-to-powder blush formula doesn’t accentuate my pores. With this blush on my cheeks, I don’t need an illuminating powder/liquid for a glowy complexion.
Urban Decay Naked Palette – Some things never change like my love for neutral eyeshadows and nothing can beat Urban decay’s Naked palette in the neutral department! With 12 neutral shades in shimmer, satin and metallic finishes, this is an amazingly beautiful palette worth every penny!
Sephora collection Maniac Long Wearing Lipsticks – I have two shades of these lippies – 05 (golden coral shimmer) and 06 (golden rose shimmer) and both are rich, gorgeous colors.What I really love about these lipsticks is that unlike most long-wearing formulas, this one is lightweight, creamy and wears comfortably without drying out.
So, these are some of my pick-me-ups for summers! What are the top favorite products that rock your summer days? Do tell!
