Makeup Wars: Summer Foundation.

My summer makeup routine is very different from the rest of the year. I like to go lighter all over, as in wear less (lighter) makeup, especially when it comes to foundation. I don't require the heavier coverage that I normally do in the winter, nor do I like it when it is hot out. I found that layering two products works best for me.

This summer I am layering Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream and It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation to get the perfect summer coverage and look for me.

Moisture Surge CC Cream glides on over my skin as it protects it with SPF 30, which is obviously super important to have in your complexion perfector for summer. I like to apply the CC Cream with my fingertips. I start at the center of my face and blend out, sort of patting it into my skin. Alone, it offers beautiful, light coverage. It has a lightweight texture that is definitely breathable. After the CC Cream sets into my skin for a few minutes, I take a large fluffy powder brush and swirl it around into the Celebration Foundation. I brush it over my face, concentrating on my forehead, nose and chin, then onto my cheeks to and blend it all in. I don't use a ton of the powder, just enough to set the CC Cream, deepen the color a bit and blend everything together. Together, it lasts all through the day as it makes my skin look like a more perfect kind of natural for summer.

Take a look at what my beauty friends use to perfect their complexion in the summer.
