My Easy Summer Makeup.

In the summer, I'm constantly on the go. I need a fast and easy, but still pretty; makeup look to keep up with my hectic summer lifestyle. My daily makeup routine does just that, and makes it look like I spent much more time on it than I actually did.

I first start off with a tinted moisturizer, which even out my skin tone and gives just a bit of color to my face. Then I apply concealer around my nose, eyes, and other problem areas. I then use 2 foundations. One is a cream to powder and then I use a powder one over that. I use one foundation, the cream to powder one, that matches my skin tone and another that is a shade darker. The reason for doing this is to prevent my bronzer from appearing too harsh on my face; using a foundation darker than my skin tone helps by blending with my bronzer in order to create the perfect shade. It is also very important to do all of this very lightly. II know it sounds like I am applying a lot, but I am not. It all blends perfectly onto my skin and makes it look very natural. I then use my favorite eye shadows combined with a product called Glam Rocks, which are used to add sparkles around my eyes and to give the overall look that extra bronzy glow. I top it all off with Mascara - an absolute must, and a nude lip gloss which adds the perfect touch. This look is quick, easy and perfect for summer.

Here is a list of the products that I use everyday to create my look:

Face:
Nuance Salma Hayek Tinted Moisturizer - medium/deep
Mally Poreless Perfection Glowing Foundation - tan
Urban Decay Surreal Skin Foundation - hallucination
Rimmel London Shimmering Maxi Bronzer - sun love

I use that Nuance TM too. I love your makeup.
Thank you for the great advice. I really would like to try some of the products you mentioned. I really like that Stila palette too.
You use a lot of different makeup and you use a lot at once. But I bet it looks great so it doesn't matte. I am the same way. My friends think I have the weirdest makeup routines, but oh well. It works for me. And if it works for you and makes you fell good and look great, then good for you!!! xOx Amy
