What’s Your Current Makeup Routine for Hot Summer Days?


My friend, happy first day of summer. It’s a hot one out here in Northern California today — supposed to hit 101 degrees Fahrenheit! Early this morning, first thing, since it was already plenty warm, I let Connor run through the lawn sprinklers. I would’ve joined her except I had already done my hair and makeup for the day, LOL!

Yup, I’ve been trying lately to do a little something-something with makeup, even when it’s hot. I’ve been on a roll recently with le face paint, and I don’t want to lose my momentum.

Here’s what I’ve been doing lately

  • Base: I start by blending a sheer, semi-matte foundation on my cheeks and nose, around my mouth and on my forehead. I pat a sheer concealer underneath my eyes and set it with the tiniest amount of powder. Then, I take a skunk brush, and I run it gently across everything to blend it all together.
  • Blush: Next, I add some color to my cheeks. I layer a coral cream blush with warm golden bronzer, and then I blend them together with my fingers. To set the cream blush/bronzer combo, I load a blush brush with a warm golden bronzer and dust it lightly across my cheeks, nose and along the edge of my face.
  • Eyes and lips:For my eyes, I keep it simple: brow pencil, mascara, eyeliner on the waterline and a pat of bronze glitter shadow on my lids. To wrap it all up, I layer a lip balm with sunscreen a pinkish nude lipstick.
