The past several months I decided to update my look and experiment with different makeup for summer - both brands and styles. Several products and dollar signs later I came to the realization that I like my minimalistic, fresh faced look and don’t want to change that. Foundations are too heavy for my liking and I enjoy seeing my freckles. Any time I put on extra eye makeup or try to do β€œglam”, I feel like I’m playing in someone else’s makeup bag where I don’t belong. That being said, I learned I can keep to my style and still update it each season with the swipe of a tint lighter or a shade darker of blush, rather than keeping it the same year-round. Lips are such an easy change too.

Does a skincare routine end with sunscreen or does the makeup routine begin with sunscreen? That is the question. Either way, after I complete my skincare routine (you can read my summer skincare routine here), I put on sunscreen. I use Babo Botanicals SPF 30 on a daily basis and Pipette SPF 50 if I going to the beach or somewhere in direct sunlight without a hat. I let that dry then pick up my beauty products.

Before I get into that, I wanted to say that the below products work for me and my skin type which is fairly β€œnormal” though if I had to lean one way, I am more oily and breakout prone than dry. I do sleep with my humidifier every night. Even before that though, I wasn’t really on the dry spectrum. As always, I try to use nontoxic / clean makeup as well as cruelty free. If my products are rated on EWG, I try to only use a 2 rating or less. I also try to use products without coconut oil which is sometimes hard to do in the β€œnatural spectrum. All that to say, here we go! Let’s dive into the products Ib use.

Have any ride or die makeup you think I should try or colors that would work well for a β€œwarm spring”? Let me know! Especially if you found a good piny neutral lipstick for me. See you in a couple of months for my fall skincare update. Perhaps we will do a makeup update then too! Here’s a video for you if you’d rather see the items in action. Enjoy!
