5 Must Have's for Your Summer Makeup Routine

When it comes to summer makeup, I usually like to wear the most lightweight products that still add some life to my face! Today, I'm giving you all my top 5 must-have makeup products that I think you all would enjoy this summer.

1. Brown Eyeliner

Brown eyeliner is my holy grail when it comes to eyeliner. I love a good winged liner, but I often find that black is much too heavy for my look so I'd much rather go for a softer liner every time. Now, don't get me wrong, I love a good smokey, winged eye look as much as the next makeup-lover, but most days I'm just not feeling it.

For my brown liner look, I actually use a brown eyeshadow and a thin, angled brush. I find that this gives the perfect amount of color payout, while still lasting all day.

2. Covergirl Tinted Lip Oil

Lip oils have a special place in my heart, especially when they smell as phenomenal as the Covergirl tinted lip oils do. This lip oil is great for the summer time because it keeps your lips moisturized while providing the perfect shade of pink to your makeup look.

I've been wearing this lip oil basically non-stop since I got it a couple months ago and I can't think of a better pairing for my glowy summer makeup looks.

3. Graphic Eyeliner

Graphic eyeliner is the perfect pop of color for your makeup looks, and ensembles in general, this summer. Featured here is the Wet n' Wild liquid eyeliner in "Voltage Blue", which you can find at essentially any drugstore near you!

Nothing says "I'm ready for bright sun and even brighter colors" like a graphic eyeliner does. (too corny?)

4. Burt's Bee's Tinted Chapstick

Once again, I'm a huge fan of tinted lip products, so it's no surprise that you can find me raving about the Burt's Bee's tinted chapsticks on any given day. On top of being the perfect shade of pink for your makeup look (they have several to choose from), these are also the creamiest chapsticks I have ever tried - and I've tried a lot!

If you haven't already, I suggest going to your local drugstore and picking out a couple shades of the Burt's Bee's tinted chapsticks to try this summer - trust me, you will not regret it.

5. L'Oreal True Match Foundation

If you're looking for a lightweight foundation that still has plenty of coverage, then look no further! Personally, I rarely wear foundation if it's not for a professional photoshoot because I like to let my skin breathe. However, the True Match foundation is the only foundation that I've tried that hasn't broken out my skin. It's lightweight, which is perfect for the summer months, but it still has the coverage for those few blemishes you may want to cover up!

As far as drugstore foundations go, L'Oreal does a great job of giving you the best quality for the right price. I highly recommend trying out the True Match foundation if you haven't done so already!


What makeup products are your go-to's during the summer months?

Until next time,


"For you, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon you"

Psalms 86:5
