Everyday Summer Look

OK guys, you asked for it so here it is! My favorite, easy to do, everyday Summer look. It takes about 10 minutes to do and gives you a really beautiful natural bronzed summery glow. Remember it is important to always moisturize your skin before applying your makeup. Doing this will help your makeup go on smoothly and will also give your skin the radiant appearance that we are going for in this look.   I know that a lot of you (especially ones with oily skin like mine) tend to shy away from moisturizer as the weather starts to warm up because your skin starts to feel more oily. Instead of skipping moisturizer altogether, try a gel moisturizer like Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel. If you are really worried your makeup is going to melt of halfway through the day you can also use a face primer before you apply your foundation. I like MAC's Prep + Prime Skin or MAC's Prep + Prime Face Protectant SPF 50.

For this look I went with a sheer tint foundation because I don't like a very heavy coverage in the summer. I would also like to mention that the foundation that I used is SPF 15. It is important all year around to make sure you are putting SPF on your face. It can be in your moisturizer, your primer or your foundation. Just make sure it's in there somewhere. Trust me, your skin will thank you. :)
