Well, the last thing I’d ever expect after months in quarantine, is that my make-up addiction would become stronger! All this time at home has actually given me more opportunity to play around with products, try out different looks and find a lot of holy grail favorites! So, I thought it would be a good time to share my go to beauty products for the summer, all of which are in my current daily make-up routine. You can find all of these at Nordstrom! In fact, that is where I do 90% of my make-up shopping, and where my make-up addiction began, because there was a Nordstrom 5 minutes from my house in high school, and I would spend more hours than I’d like to admit, perusing the beauty isle and trying out a hundred lip glosses every weekend. You can also head to my story highlights under “Summer Make-Up” to watch a full tutorial on this look. I include an easy 3 step contour how to, using this Charlotte Tilbury bronzing powder, which is now 100% on my forever favorites list.
Here’s the breakdown of my glowy make-up routine for summer, in order of application. My Nordstrom beauty favorites!
PRIMER: TULA FACE FILTER BLURRING & MOISTURIZING PRIMER my absolute favorite primer and I’ve tried A LOT!
FOUNDATION – CHARLOTTE TILBURY FLAWLESS FILTER (shade 4 – Medium) applied with a BEAUTY SPONGE. I use this instead of foundation, and absolutely in love with the natural glow it gives.
SETTING POWDER – LAURA MERCIER TRANSLUCENT LOOSE SETTING POWDER. I dab this under my eyes prior to eye shadow application, to easily brush off any excess shadow that falls, leaving skin clean for final powder application.
BROWS: BENEFIT GIMME BROW eyebrow gel (01 light blonde), followed by BENEFIT PRECICELY MY BROW PENCIL, SHADE 1. I then use a slightly wet angle brush and the ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS BROW POWDER DUO (shade Taupe) to add more definition to my brows. You can also use either the pencil or the powder duo on their own.
EYESHADOW – URBAN DECAY NAKED HONEY EYESHADOW PALLETTE
EYELINER – URBAN DECAY WATERPROOF FINE POINT EYE PEN
