Hey guys! Today I am sharing my current summer makeup routine using cream products! It wasn’t until recently that I got into cream products but now that I have tried them I am in love. I think it just makes my skin look dewy and fresh and also much more natural. It’s also a pretty long-lasting routine since I do make sure to apply a bit of powder. I have been doing this routine almost every day for the past couple of weeks. I will also be posting a video of this routine on my Insta if you want to check it out!
The first step is to prime. I like to use a dewy primer because then I don’t have to use as much highlight. The primer I am currently using is one of my products of the month, the Touch In Sol Pretty Filter Glassy Skin Balm. This was is very dewy. As I wait for my primer to dry I do my eyebrows.
Next, I apply my foundation and concealer. I like the Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation. Because I am using a dewy primer I don’t need a super dewy foundation. This foundation is pretty long-wearing as well. The concealer I use is the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. The shade I have is just a touch to pale for me right now but I love the formula.
After comes the fun part. For my bronzer, I like to use the Milk Makeup Matte Bronzer. This one is just a great shade for me and it blends out so easily. My favourite brush to use is the Real Techniques Stippling Brush. And I use the same brush to blend out my blush as well. This helps create a seamless look between the two. My current favourite cream blush is the NudeStix Nudies Matte Blush in the shade In the Nude. It’s such a great cream blush. I finish my face with the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter. This is technically a complexion booster, so the colour is almost skin toned and it looks quite natural on the skin. It adds that light-from-within glow to my skin.
Now if you have dry skin you could probably get away with not setting the face. Because I have oily skin I have to set my face. I set my concealer and then place powder around my nose, chin and forehead. I also lightly dust powder around the rest of my face to set the cream products. This helps the base stay in place and also make my face not feel tacky. I currently am loving the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Powder. To help my face not look powdery I spray a healthy amount of a dewy setting spray. My current fav is the NYX Dewy Finish Setting Spray.
Next up is the eyes. I usually keep my eyes pretty simple. Sometimes I’ll apply a little eyeshadow but if I’m just at home then I’ll apply mascara. My current favourite is the Lancome Monsieur Big mascara. I didn’t like it at first but once it dried out a bit then I liked it. It gives me long and fluttery lashes.
The final step is the lips. Most of the time I’ll just apply lip balm. If I’m at home I don’t wear anything because I eat food lol. If I’m going to a store I will wear a face mask and I don’t want any lip products to get all over my mask. But if I’m just chilling with my friends and socially distancing, then I’ll apply a bit of Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip in the shade Champagne Mami.
And that is my current makeup routine guys! Let me know what some of your current favourites are to wear in the summertime.
