When summer hits my makeup bag gets an overhaul. Instead of wearing heavy foundations and lipsticks I instead sub in BB creams and lip crayons. I especially love BB creams that have SPF in them.
These are products that always make their way into my bag once the warm weather hits. I started using this combo last summer and it has easily become my summer go to. I will say that there are sometimes when I will sub in like a different palette or a different lip product but for the most part this is my Go to Summer Makeup Look.
To start out with I always prep my face before I even start doing anything else. Right now I’m loving Clean and Clear’s Morning Glow Moisturizer because it’s lightweight, has a good amount of SPF in it, and it really gives the skin a glow. After applying my moisturizer I always pop some lip balm on my lips before getting started on my makeup. I do this because it gives my lips more opportunity to absorb the balm for more moisture.
Clean and Clear Moisturizer || $12.50
Nivea Lip Balm || $2.47
One thing I love about this look is the Theodora Palette by Urban Decay, it is such a multitasking palette. I use the matte brown shade to fill in my brows and alternate between a neutral brown look and occasionally a green eye look. During the summer I like to use Rimmel’s ScandalEyes Eye Kohl in Nude on my bottom waterline, I feel this makes my eyes look more open and make the look more light. For my everyday makeup looks I use Maybelline’s Great Lash Mascara in Clear to set my brows as it does a decent job.

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara in Clear || $4.44
Maybelline The Colossal Mascara in Very Black || $5.94
As I mentioned above I love switching to BB Creams and Maybelline’s Dream Fresh is my favorite for everyday makeup looks. I just love that it has an SPF of 30 in it! I also love setting it with one Maybelline’s Dream Matte Powder in Sand. I use a tinted setting powder to give me a bit more color as I don’t tan my face at all and as my body gets a natural tan, from sunscreen wearing off, it helps my face to match my body a bit better.
Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream in Light/Medium || $7.68
e.l.f. Blush and Bronzer Duo in St. Lucia || $3.00
As I mentioned I LOVE using lip crayons during summer and I switch between different ones. I have Revlon lip crayons, Neutrogena lip crayons, etc. etc. etc. but for this particular day I chose to wear Pop Beauty’s Lip Crayon.
Pop Beauty Lip Crayon in Fuchsia Flirt || $25.00 – Six Lip Crayons in different shades.
This is what the finished makeup look looks like. As you can see it gives a flawless face without caking on the makeup. It also looks bright and fresh which is perfect for summer, especially if you’re heading to the beach.
For this particular look I went with the green eye look which I did lightly so it wasn’t so in your face. I love the Maybelline The Colossal Mascara because it makes my lashes look long and voluptuous without looking spidery and fake.
