Yes, you read that right. I'm almost going bare in today's blog post... on my face that is. I wanted to share my everyday makeup look that I've been doing lately. I was watching makeup videos on YouTube last night remembering the days that I used to show up to class with a full face of makeup on, contour and everything. Kay, if you're reading this, do you remember me showing up to news editing with full eyeshadow looks? I was not playing around my sophomore year. Alas, I now have a baby and don't have time to sit and apply five layers of makeup. I barely have time to put mascara on most days.
Luckily, I saw a new makeup launch from NYX on Instagram and felt that it was speaking to me and my busy mom life. One of their newer lines, the Bare With Me line, is honestly perfect for that ever-popular no-makeup makeup look. With only four products all dedicated to creating an even, glowly base, it's my ideal line for summer. And it takes less than five minutes to do my whole face now.
First thing's first, primer. Even when I'm not doing a full face of makeup, I like to do primer just to try and even out any texture on my skin or fill in my pores. While the Hydrating Jelly Primer ($17) doesn't really do either of those things, it is definitely hydrating and helps my skin from creating excess oil in this summer heat.
I follow the primer up with the Tinted Skin Veil ($13) in True Beige Buff. It is a tad dark for me right now, but I know it will be perfect when I start to get a little bit of a tan. This is going to be mainly my summer makeup so I don't mind it being a little off right now since it will be perfect later. I don't love putting this around my eyes so I use my Glossier Stretch Concealer in Light ($18) instead. They've added more shades to their line since I last purchased the concealer, so I think now I would pick up G11 to cover up my giant dark circles.
The Cheek Tint ($10) is a great product to kill two birds with one stone. I use this on both my cheeks and lips to add a little bit of color back to my face. I'm sure you could also try using this on your eyes to add a wash of color to your lids. There are three shades of this, but my favorite is Detox Me, a bright coral shade.
The last things I do are fill in my brows and put on some mascara. I use my tried and true NYX brow pencil and L'Oreal mascara. Those products will probably never change no matter what I do with my makeup.
I lock everything in with the Multitasking Spray ($10). The spray can prime, set and refresh your makeup and just adds more hydration to the skin. I love using it to set and then refresh later if I need to. The mist is so fine which I love as well.
All of these products have quickly become my most used items in my makeup bag and will continue to be my favorites throughout the summer. What are your favorite makeup products for this season? Let me know in the comments!
