Summertime and the living is easy! And hot. And a bit melty. Wearing makeup in the summertime is a balancing act– you want to look bright and vibrant but you don’t want to be overly made up; if you’re anything like me, you want to be as naked as possible when it’s hot outside. I created this super simple makeup routine to help you beat the heat but still look chic! (I made a rhyme, y’all!)
Simple Summer Makeup: The Goods
Beauticontrol has released some great new products, products almost picture-perfect for creating an easy summertime look. You can get them all from me– check out my new “Shop” tab! You can get your Beauticontrol, fashion and shop Amazon.com all without leaving this site!
- Beauticontol Perfecting Wet/Dry Finish, $24
- I used two colors– Y5 as my primary base and Y4 as a under-eye highlight. I have the most delightful dark circles that I like to “camouflage” a bit. The powder finish of the Wet/Dry keeps the look light and fresh.
- APPLY WITH: Real Techniques Powder Brush for all-over color; I love using the Beauty Blender for setting my undereye highlight–use the corner to really get in the corner of your eye.
- Beauticontrol Pure Touch Blush in Rose, $20
- NEW PRODUCT ALERT! Beauticontrol Long wearing Liquid Eyeliner in Black, $16
- Do you want a slight cat-eye? Well, girl, you go get your cateye! This brand new, beautiful, RICH, waterproof eyeliner sweeps on and lasts. I think that I’m going to be hitting y’all with a video soon. (Been too long, huh?)
- APPLY WITH: Brush is included!
- NEW PRODUCT ALERT! Beauticontrol Precision Brow Pencil in Dark, $16
- NEW PRODUCT ALERT! Beauticontrol All-in-One Brow Kit, $29
- My brows never got past their infancy. In fact, when I was a little Kerri, I drew all of my people without ears or eyebrows– I have tiny ears and dainty brows so everyone else did, too. I like to create a dramatic, bold brow when I’m keeping the rest of my makeup low-key.
- APPLY WITH: The Brow Kit comes with a perfect spoolie and brush combo. Win.
- NEW PRODUCT ALERT! Beauticontrol Lash Impact Waterproof Mascara, $25
- No way in the world am I going to make sure the rest of my face is life proof and let my mascara run down my face. No way, no how.
