Summer is my favorite season, and one of the reasons is because my dry skin is finally able to breathe. Even though its summer, my usually dry skin doesn’t automatically turn luminous. In order to achieve a glowy look it’s important to use the right products.
In my recent post Eight Must Have Beauty Products, I mentioned that I use the Tarte Maracuja Oil mixed in with my foundation, and although that’s still an important step in my routine, I like a little extra glow to my skin. After applying my holy-grail primer and before my foundation, I like to squeeze a little bit of my new favorite product. Enter, the Nyx Born to Glow illuminator in Gleam, and the icing on top? It’s only $7.99 at your local drugstore! It’s like applying highlight underneath your makeup, it makes a world of a difference.
Another important part of my summer makeup routine is lips. Although right now everyone and their Mom wants lip injections, I have a cheaper and quicker fix. Over-lining your lip can give you an identical look for much less. My favorite combo recently has been Maybelline lip-liner in 20 nude and the Revlon Ultra Matte Lip Color 645 HD Forever. I promise it’s a great compromise between a Kylie Jenner lip and your natural lip shape. Best part is, this drugstore combo is no less than any high-end product.
