Now that summer’s rolling around, I thought it would be a great idea to share my everyday makeup routine with you guys! In the summer, I like to keep it minimal & use products that really help bring out my natural glow. I tend to stick to more lightweight products to prevent any excess oil production &/or buildup & to let my pores breathe, especially with the constant change in temperature from the humidity outside to the air conditioned places we tend to spend our time in when we’re not outdoors!
This makeup routine works for me daily & even works through sweaty AF workouts, doesn’t break me out, irritate my skin or clog my pores! Just to give you an idea of how well it holds after a workout, this is me after a one-hour intense boxing class. HOLY F, right?
PRIMER: Clarins SOS Primer. I use colour 8 & I find it great for summer because it really brings out the glow!
FOUNDATION/TINTED MOISTURIZER: I love the mix of the Sunday Riley Influencer foundation with the Hyaluronic Skin Tint by Hourglass for an extra dose of highlight, glow + hydration.
CONCEALER: Obsessed with the coverage & illumination of the Dermablend Liquid Camo Concealer. I always mix 2 colours (my actual colour + a lighter shade to brighten).
SETTING POWDER: Love the Hourglass Veil. It doesn’t leave a white or caked on finish & really blurs imperfections & gives a flawless finish.
INNER CORNER HIGHLIGHT: Tarte Fake Awake is so easy to use & gives a really eye-opening & brightening effect without the need for eyeshadow palettes & brushes.
MASCARA: Clinique 24-Hour Workout Mascara is where it’s at if you’re looking for something that’ll lengthen, separate, add volume & last all day without smudging or leaving any grey or dark patches post-sweat.

HIGHLIGHT: My go to is the Anastasia Amreezy palette. Can’t live without it! I apply it to my eyelids, on my T-zone & under my eyes & on my brow bone.
BRONZER: Becca Sunlit Bronzer in Ipanema Sun has been my go to for a couple months now. Beautiful bronzed colour + great for contour.
BLUSH: The Anastasia Blush Trio is awesome because you can change it up based on the look you’re going for + blend the colours differently everyday! I used the Berry Adore one here & blended all 3 colours.
GLOSS: Any Buxom Full On Lip Creme & Tarte H2O Gloss are current faves!
