Hot Summer Days!Monday, July 16, 2012
Hey fabulous dolls how are you dealing with this heat? Do you dare wear makeup in this weather? I say why not, if it's who you are why let this 90 degree weather get in between you and your makeup bag. I mean, I don't suggest a smokey eye and "RubyWoo" on your lips, but if thats what you'd like it's ok. Everyone's preference is different.
My makeup look for a super hot day doesn't consist of much. I try to keep it a little more simple than my daily routine.
I start off with a tinted moisturizer with SPF 20 which is very important. The one I wear is by e.l.f and the shade I use is "Nude", I apply it all over my face. I've been using this product for about 3 months now and I like it because it's lightweight and best of all it's inexpensive. You can find this product at Target.
On my eyelids I apply MAC Paints in Bare Canvas. I usually wear this under my eyeshadows as a base. In this case I wear it alone because it evens out and looks as if I applied a neutral eyeshadow. Now this I've been using for years and I LOVE IT! For me it's a MUST under my eyeshadows.
I then fill my eyebrows with this Sonia Kashuk brow kit in arch alert-12 using MAC brush 266SE.
To finish my eyes I apply some mascara. I use Lash Blow Out from Ulta in Jet Black. When I saw the brush to this mascara I was amazed, and even more by the results. It's a lengthening mascara and I like how I can separate the lashes with this tiny brush.
On my cheeks I apply a little blush. This one is also from e.l.f. and its called "Pink Passion". I might wear a different shade depending on what I'm wearing.
Lastly I choose a lipstick or lip gloss to complete the look.
This is just what I like to do and what I feel comfortable wearing. If you're not used to wearing anything I really wouldn't recommend that you do on a hot day because you might feel very uncomfortable and it might end up in a disaster. Instead try it on a cool day.
This is also a great way to get introduced to makeup. These are basic inexpensive products you can try if you're a beginner.
Hope you enjoy, have fun and keep cool.
