What's In Your Summer Makeup Bag?
Summer’s here and around this time when things are heating up, I like to give my makeup bag a cleanse and take a “less is more” approach to my beauty routine. I tend to use makeup and skincare that gives me hydrated, glowing skin with a bronzed natural finish. No matter where you wander this summer, these 5 essentials are sure to help you achieve the ultimate sunkissed glow.
1. WANDERESS™ GLOW
Get your glow on with Wanderess™ Glow! This is a personal favorite of mine when I want to glow from head to toe. This universal, champagne hued powder highlighter can be used on the face, body, and eyes. It has ultra-fine, light-reflecting pigments that blend flawlessly into the skin for a show stopping glow. The formula is enriched with edelweiss flower extract to help keep skin supple and sunflower seed oil to retain moisture.
How to: Apply Wanderess™ Glow to the high points of your face (cheekbones, brow bone, nose bridge, and Cupid's bow). To create the illusion of a fuller pout, tap onto the center of your lips (over lipstick). For added radiance on your body, apply to the decolletage, shoulders, and legs.
2. DOUBLE DATE LIP AND CHEEK
I love a natural flush on the cheeks year-round but particularly during the summertime. Double Date Lip and Cheek is a multitasking duo featuring a sheer tint and clear, shimmer-free balm for moisturized lips, cheeks, and eyes. It comes in two shades: Rendezvous/Swipe (peony pink/clear) and Suite Talker/Swipe (nude coral/clear). The double-tiered compact includes a built-in mirror, perfect for touch-ups on the go.
How to: Tap the sheer tint onto lips and cheeks for buildable color. Apply the balm onto lips for instant, hydration and to prime for color. You can even add another layer of the balm over your lip color for a custom dewy finish. For a natural, glossy, glass skin glow, tap onto lids and cheeks. Gently swipe over brows to define shape and comb over hairline to tame flyaways.
3. TRIP FOR TWO BLUSH AND BRONZER DUO
We know how harmful sun exposure can be so how can we achieve the bronzy look we get after laying out for a few hours? The solution is our Trip for Two Blush and Bronzer Duo! Grab a bronzer in a shade slightly deeper than your skin tone and a blush that mimics your natural flush so that you can recreate that sunkissed look! Trip for Two comes in two shades: Bellini (peachy)/Costa Rei (light bronzer) and Daiquiri (pink)/Tulum (deep bronzer). The soft, matte blush adds natural color and blends effortlessly into skin. The buildable bronzer adds warmth and extra dimension, bringing the beach to you.
How to: For a natural pop of color, apply the blush to the apple of your cheeks and blend color upwards. To add dimension and contour, blend bronzer into the hairline, under the cheekbone, and along the jawline.
4. DIVE IN™ MOISTURIZER
We can’t forget skincare! Moisturizing your skin is an essential part of your routine no matter the season. Especially during these hot summer months, you want to avoid having dehydrated skin paired with sun exposure. Just as you would drink water to hydrate yourself, apply moisturizer to hydrate your skin! Dive In™ Moisturizer contains ingredients such as Pentavitin which will lock in moisture for up to 72 hours. The lightweight formula has a non-greasy gel texture which allows it to absorb instantly and works well under makeup for a beautiful complexion.
How to: Apply a pea-sized amount onto a clean face and gently massage. Use each morning or night.
Applying sunscreen is an everyday beauty essential. Spending any time outdoors means sun exposure which can be harmful to skin. It’s important to use a long lasting sunscreen with a SPF of at least 30. This will help protect you from 97% of the sun’s harmful rays. Even in winter, you should be slathering SPF onto your face each and every day to prevent sun damage. This will work to prevent signs of aging, sunspots, fine lines, and wrinkles.
