Summertime Face Base

Hello!  Today I am sharing my summertime foundation and skincare routine.  I like to wear lightweight makeup in the summer and have a nice hydrated base.

Just a (few) things to achieve the look. Haha 🙂

Let’s start off with skincare.

I always wash my face with this Purity Facial Cleanser, it doesn’t strip my skin and leaves my face squeaky clean.  A few times a week I like to use this Origins Retexturizing Mask to clear my pores and remove all of the dead skin.  I love this mask!  After that, I will use this Caudalie Beauty Elixir as a toner. I love this for the warmer months, because it is so nice and cooling.  You can really just spray this on whenever.  Sometimes I just cannot stop spraying it because it smells and feels like a SPA.  For sunscreen, I love this Dr. Jart Every Sun Day SPF 30.  I will either mix this in with my Clinique Gel, or I will apply it on its own.  It doesn’t feel greasy and it’s moisturizing.

For makeup, I start off with this L’Oréal Magic Lumi Primer.  I just apply a tiny bit of this to my skin and it makes my skin look brighter and fresh.  I then use a sponge to apply the L’Oréal Infallible Pro Glow Foundation which is so nice for my dry skin.  It is lightweight and has buildable coverage.  For my undereyes, I use the Sephora Collection Bright Future Gel Serum Concealer, and apply that with a teeny sponge.  I set my undereyes with the Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder.  This keeps my concealer from creasing and also adds some brightness.

I apply this Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer on the perimeter of my face and in the hollows of my cheekbones, and then the Love Flush Blush in Justify My Love on my cheeks and sweep it back.  This blush is such a pretty pink with just a hint of gold sparkle.  I have to apply some highlight, so I used the Laura Geller Baked Gelato Swirl Illuminator in Charming Pink.  This icy pink is chock full of shimmer and looks so pretty.  Lastly, I will set my face with this UD Chill Makeup Setting Spray.  This feels so great on a hot day, and it keeps my makeup from budging.

This routine makes my face have a pretty glow without being too overdone.  It’s lightweight and feels like I’m not wearing much makeup at all.  I love it!
