I tend to switch up my makeup favorites quite often and with the arrival of warmer days, I have been going towards products that will withstand long days at work without a whole lot of reapplication. I wanted simple products that could work in a lot of different ways and I have definitely found a few HG favorites for Summer and I definitely wanted to share my favorites with you!
Cargo Swimmables Blush in Los Cabos // This water resistant blush is completely amazing. It packs a wallup of color in a really tiny amount and it stays put all day long. The coral-y color is perfect for for Summer and I haven’t tested it yet, but it’s also water resistant. It’s basically perfect for warmer months. I am definitely looking at getting the other shades of it too.
Coola Unscented Mineral Tinted Sunscreen // As for my go to primer, I wanted something with SPF that acted like my winter favorite primer, Benefit’s Porefessional. Coola Tinted matte sunscreen works amazingly for diminishing pores and protecting the face from the Sun’s rays. I really wanted it in the cucumber scent (I’m such a sucker for scents).
Diorshow Blackout Mascara // For big and beautiful lashes, my go to mascara is Dior Blackout mascara. It does an amazing job of giving me really WOW lashes. It also has good staying power, especially if you go for the waterproof version. I have a feeling I will be reaching for this all Summer.
Stila Pomegranate Crush Lip Stain // I’ve talked about my love of lip stains before, but the one I find myself reaching for again and again recently is the Stila Pomegranate Crush lip stain. It has crazy staying power and the Pomegranate color is a beautiful berry shade that looks awesome with my fair skin.
Benefit Cosmetics Playstick // It works as a concealer, foundation and powder all in one. It’s crazy how useful this little stick can be for all day/every day. I use my Beauty Blender to blend in the stick in all the necessary areas and it does a great job of covering all my spots and acting as my foundation.
Mac Cosmetics Eyeshadow Duo // I have been bouncing back and forth between palettes lately using a random array of colors. I wanted to find shades that worked for the everyday and that didn’t require me pulling out five palettes to do it. So i decided to pop into my local Mac and get a duo of the best shades that worked for me. I especially liked Brûlée, a matte cream, Shrooms, a shimmery white, and Espresso, a dark brown. These three shades work perfectly for me from day to night. Seriously, if you haven’t checked out the shadows at Mac, you definitely should try.
