Essential Summer Makeup

IMG_2129Summer is the best time of the year in my opinion. It means staying outside longer than inside, it means baseball games (both Royals and Little League), it means pretty flowers in front yards and it means swimming as much as you can before you turn into a fish.

But it also means hot. Very hot.  Like, as soon as I get into my hot car I’m going to asphyxiate and die, hot.

You deal with it, because summer only comes around once a year and you also have to live your life, right?

Today I am going to make your life MUCH easier.  I want to introduce my two new best friends to you.  They are the Becca Cosmetics Ever-Matte Poreless Priming Perfector and the Makeup Forever Mat Velvet Foundation.

With these two products you shouldn’t need to set your makeup with a powder, at all.  The Becca primer acts like a vacuum that sucks up excess oil as soon as you apply it to your skin. It makes your skin tacky & dry, perfect for this humid heat!  You want to rub it in your hands very well and then apply it quickly over your face.  Then apply the mat velvet foundation with a brush over that.  I love this mat velvet formula because I’ve never worn a foundation that mimics skin texture SO well.  It literally looks like you have nothing on, in the best way possible.

Once you are done with these two products, your skin feels perfect.  The foundation doesn’t crease, doesn’t slide and it covers imperfections like a dream.  If you happen to have any super dry areas on your face (like your cheeks) apply a little extra moisturizer before you use the primer, it will smooth out the area better. Once you are finished your makeup will feel weightless giving you the confidence you need to head out the door!
