Simple Summer Makeup to Ease That Routine


simple summer makeup

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 Eyes

  • 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.

What is your go-to makeup routine? What would you like to see from me next?

Until next time,

    You look pretty, and I love the simple makeup you do. Never heard of this brand but I might try it, prices are a bit off for a brand that I don’t know.


    • January 13, 2016 / 9:47 am

      Let me know what you think, Sara! Beaufticontrol is definitely not famous but I’ve been using the products for years and you couldn’t tear me away from my skin care routine.
