It’s no secret I’m white. Or should I say pale? Translucent? Clear? Porcelain? Somehow even when I have a tan I still look white! Don’t get me wrong, I’ve come to grips with this a long time ago and I love my skin color. But finding a good bronzer has been next to impossible. All I want it a nice glow, I don’t want to look orange. Ever. And so often bronzers turn my skin orange or make it look like I have dirt on my face…. great. Summer time is the season where everyone wants that nice natural glowing look. Every girls goal is to achieve this during the hot days of summer.
I’ve been receiving a lot of compliments on my skin recently and today I thought it would be fun to show you my summer makeup routine and the products I use to achieve my favorite natural summer look!
First I always begin with a freshly washed face. I don’t need to remind you how important it is to wash your face every morning and every night to keep it clean and healthy, do I? Starting with a freshly washed and moisturized face I now add primer. I only use primer when working with mineral powder which is my go to foundation. I enjoy using the Mary Kay Foundation Primer but I also like Smashbox Photo Finish Primer as well. While my primer is setting I normally go blow dry my hair or check Instagram.
After a few minutes I then apply my foundation. I love bareMinerals Original Foundation, it’s a build-able mineral powder which is what I love about it. Plus bareMinerals offers a wide variety of shades for all skin tones. I’ve been wearing this foundation since I began my makeup journey and always return to it. Once I’ve applied my foundation evenly I add Mary Kay Sunny Spice as my bronzer. This is my go to color for bronzer! It adds that nice warm glow without making my face look like I played in dirt the best part? It’s actually not a bronzer it’s blush! Next I mix Sunny Spice and Strawberry Cream and brush it across the apples of my cheeks. These two colors give my cheeks the perfect summer glow! I’ve also linked bellow some of my favorite makeup brushes!
