Summer Makeup Routine

I absolutely love the summer & one of my favorite things about it is how much more natural you can make your makeup.  Your face gets that natural, sun-kissed glow in the summer that allows you to wear far less makeup & still look absolutely gorgeous :) This is an awesome time saver too!
My summer makeup includes:
- Tinted Moisturizer (with SPF15)
- Peachy cream blush
- Barely there lipstick or lip balm
- Brown mascara (I've swapped out my usual black for brown & I'm loving it!)
- Dewy eyeshadow (or jumbo eyeliner pencil) in a light, natural shade

Here are pictures of the products I've been using, but you can swap in whatever you have:

mark "get a tint" (my shade = buff/natural)
mark "just pinched" in shade peachy
optional: you can dust a similar peachy/coral shade over the cream blush for a slightly more dramatic & lasting effect - I've been using the coral shade blush from the e.l.f 120 color palette, but any one will do)

mark Lipclick SPF 15 Color Shine Lipstick in shade Cupid

Avon Super Magnify mascara in Brown

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in shade Yogurt

A Little Something Extra:
If you want to add a little oomph to your look, you can use a bright, summer color to line underneath your bottom lashes (either use eyeshadow with a eyeliner brush or an eyeliner pencil in your favorite summer shade).  I especially love to use bright blues, greens, or purple.

twitter! (&toneitup)

So within an hour I've already made my blogspot and signed up for twitter =) My twitter name is the same as my blogspot name:!/kaseymarie13

I have to be honest, I've been wanting to create a twitter for a while so that I could follow a few of the gazillion awesome people that I know have one but I was mainly inspired by Toneitup and the girls from the tone it up team.  If you haven't heard of Tone It Up you need to check them out immediately! They are awesome for anyone interested in getting (or staying) in shape, eating right, and leading a healthy and active lifestyle.  I first found them on youtube and watched their workout videos to incorporate into my workout routine.  They're so motivational! Since this is only my second blog post, I feel like I'm the only person whose reading it lol but for anyone who happens to come across this checking out Toneitup is an absolute must!

They're on youtube here:

my first post :)

So I decided today was the day I would start a blog. I made this decision pretty much on a whim and now as I sit here to write my first post I'm not sure what to say... that can't be a good sign :/ haha.  I basically would just like to have a place where I can talk about all of the things in life that I find interesting.  These interests mainly include food (I love to cook & I LOVE to eat :)), staying active, reading and all things beauty related.  Stay tuned for posts on all of these things as well as whatever else I happen to feel like writing about :)
Much love,
