Summer Proof Makeup


Summer is in full-swing here in Chicago and let me tell you… it is HOT outside. By no means am I complaining, as it always feels like winter is right around the corner, but I forgot what it feels like to literally feel like you’re melting outside. Through trial and error, I’ve finally nailed down my no-frills summer makeup routine and am excited to share it with you!

Dr. Jart BB Cream
NARS Illuminator 

I keep things very minimal on my face in the summer. I’ve tried a number of tinted moisturizers, BB creams and foundations, but I always come back to Dr. Jart’s BB cream. There is no other product out there that provides the same even coverage while still feeling super light on your skin. As an added bonus, it’s a moisturizer, sunscreen (SPF 45), and treatment serum all-in-one. I apply NARS' illuminator on the apples of my cheeks back towards the top of my hear for a subtle glow. To get the perfect airbrush finish I apply everything with my beauty blender. (tip: you can scoop up this set for a great price at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale right now!)

Two Faced Natural Eye Palette
Stila Stay All Day Liquid Liner
Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara

I recently discovered Two Faced’s Neutral Palette and can guarantee that this is the one palette that I will re-purchase over and over again. The shades are beautiful and can easy be applied for a day to night look.
