Summer StylePosted on June 16, 2012
In Vegas, Summer is already here. 100 degree days are in full force & my AC has been cranking for weeks now.
Since the Summer’s here are so long & so so so so so HOT, I find myself wearing less & less makeup & lately even no makeup. Because this sister is a sweater. And I don’t mean the warm, deer embroidered kind, I mean the don’t want to raise your arm to reveal sweat rings in my pits kind.
I’m pretty low maintenance when it comes to my makeup. The drug store is my playground because if I end up hating something? Eh, whatevs, it was cheap anyways. And if I love it? SCORE! It’s cheap!
Seriously though, I try everything until I find something that works for me. It’s been a lot of trial & error, so I thought I’d share with you my favorite products for my everyday Summer look.
1. DRY SHAMPOO PEOPLE. GET WITH IT! I love this shiz. All kinds.
2. Nuetrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash, I actually struggle with acne more as an adult than I did as a teenager. And since I wear almost no makeup in Summer, this is a necessity.
3. Bronzer, it’s your best friend. Trust me. Especially in the Summer. It gives your face a slightly tanner tint & helps hide any blemishes.
4. Mascara, I just throw on a coat or two & call it a day.
5. Green stuff. That’s what I call this. I don’t even know the real name for it. It comes in a lipstick-type tube. You slather this stuff on any red marks you have, blend it in with a little foundation & it’s MAGICAL. Pimples disappear!!!
6. Blush because….duh. Blush!
7. Lipgloss. I prefer a nude shade in Summer time. Keep it natural.
Do you guys have any favorite Summer essentials or looks? Or anything I should try this year? Holler at your girl!
