Summer in, make-up out. Not intentionally though; I adore make-up as much as the next girl but it’s just very bothersome to apply layers and layers of products just to have it melt as soon as you leave the house. Yet, if you’re one of those people who just cannot be seen bare-faced in public, I feel ya. My go-to summer make-up routine includes this very simple yet powerful trick. Instead of layering foundation, powder and eyeshadow, I layer mascara. Since it’s actually one of the few make-up products that don’t melt in hot weather, it’s the perfect thing to use and abuse during summer.
When going for this look, I go easy on everything else. Moisturizer and light BB cream will do wonders for your skin, along with few swipes of bronzer across your cheeks and forehead. The focus should be on your eyes. After you’re done with your eyebrow routine, go ahead and cake on your favorite mascara! Be sure to let it dry between layers, so that your eyelashes get more volume. Finish off the look with a nude lipstick of your choice (I swear by MAC’s Creme D’Nude). Et voilà, in under 10 minutes you have the perfect sun-kissed summer look with a wow factor!
