Beat the Heat with Makeup

Summer is here! There is nothing better than sitting outside and enjoying the warm weather. That is until you start to sweat and your makeup becomes cakey. Here I put together some of my makeup favorites that will give you a brilliant summer glow and beat the heat!

1. Sally Hansen Gel Nail Polish- People have been buzzing about this polish and for good reason! It stays on for ages without chipping. Perfect for those summer sandals.

2. Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser- I love love love this product. I put it on right after I wash my face to minimize my large pores. It also helps to set makeup by acting like a primer. This product is my best friend especially in the summer when I sweat a lot more.

3. L'oreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder- I recently tried this foundation and fell in love. It has a lightweight consistency and looks very natural on the skin. You can barely tell you have foundation on at all! I use it a lot more in the summer to achieve that no makeup look and it works wonders.

4. NYX Blush (Mauve)- Blush was never really in my makeup bag until I came across the NYX blushes. I love their compact size and the wide range of colors from peachy to pink. The color I have is Mauve and it looks brilliant on top of bronzer giving me a subtle summer glow.

5. NYX Butter Gloss (Apple Strudel)- Another NYX product that is a must have for summer! I know I mentioned in a previous post that I hate sticky lip glosses so I tend to stay away from them, but not these! I love these glosses because they go on smooth and give you a little shine. Apple Strudel is a light pink that will compliment the color on your cheeks.

6. Covergirl LashBlast Waterproof Mascara- If you are spending a day at the beach or doing any activity outside I highly recommend this mascara. It extends lashes and you won't have to worry about it running down your face if you happen to encounter water or sweat!

I hope this gives you a little inspiration for that perfect summer makeup look. Don't be afraid to try new products :) Have a great day!
