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)

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.
