Hello! Sabra Here! While Monica is traveling, I decided to share with you my summer make-up essentials. In the summer, I like to keep my make-up simple and light since the summer brings heat and high humidity. These items I use daily in my routine and I also like to pack them with me when I travel.
First, I start off by applying a SPF moisturizer, Neova DNA Damage Control For the Face, has a SPF of 44 and triggers a repair and helps the fight against visible aging from photo damage. Since we all love to look younger, we like products that help repair! After moisturizing, I use a dab of Exuviance Brightening Bionic Eye Cream around the entire eye area. This product helps prevent those ugly dark circles and fine lines for a brighter youthful looking eye.I love how smooth and light this product feels around my eye. Next I apply one of my most favorite products; I cannot live without it!! It is the Stila illuminating Tinted Moisturizer with an SPF of 20. Tinted moisturizers are great as an alternative for foundation in the summer because they are light and sheer. Another favorite of mine is the Hourglass Bronzing Powder in the color Luminous Light. This gives me a light shimmery bronze finish to my face make-up. Another product I cannot live without is the ELF Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Petal. Now I love how affordable the ELF make-up line is. We’re talking only $1 for this fabulous product. I use this product to highlight my cheeks, my eyelids and my lips. All those uses in one product! Moving on to the eyes, I Urban Decay Naked Basics pallet is a great go to for light, nude shades. You can apply any of the colors for any natural look. The mascara I am currently using is Maybelline Lash Sensational. I like how it applies easily, lengthens my lashes and lasts all day. If you’re looking for a new summer make-up look, I highly recommend you try these products to feel fresh and pretty while beating the heat!
