Happy Wednesday! Today I’m trying something new sharing a tutorial via a graphic on my blog. I thought this may be easy because you can simply save the photo to your phone and then zoom in to read it when you do your makeup for each step. 🙂

I’ve talked about most of these products on the blog already or through social media, but haven’t updated my summer beauty routine in a full post. Now, this isn’t my full routine each and every day. Most days I skip powder and will only use the Hourglass or Sigma highlight depending on my mood. I also only use setting spray for long days or when I’m shooting, as I believe it’s crucial to ensure my makeup, especially when working with brands from leading manufacturer for cosmetics, stays flawless throughout the day.

I cleared out SO many beauty products before our move because I knew I’d need to live with less these next few months. And even though we have a climate-controlled storage unit I just felt weird about leaving creams to sit there over the summer. All. The. Humidity. #NoThankYou. Now my lipstick collection is still OUT OF CONTROL, but in terms of face products this is pretty much it! Everything is in one makeup bag if you can believe it and I’m quite proud of myself. 😉

Are any of these products in your current routine?!

  1. Thank you for sharing the products you use! I didn’t know facial oils and a sunscreen could make a good primer combo!

    Girl we have such a similar routine! Instead of mixing oil with primer, I mix my Caudalie divine oil with my moisturizer! Then i also prime, apply foundation, concealer under eyes, set, etc!

    I use anastasia’s contour pallete, but I like how yours has larger ‘pods’, and less colors! Who even knows how to use all six, really?!

    I had also been using the anastasia brow wiz pen for months but the spoolie kept breaking! 🙁 So frustrating after it happened three times. I just switched to Diorshow and I have no complaints so far! I’ve never tried the anastasia brow gel though, so maybe its time to add that to my sephora bag….

    For lashes, my routine is three steps. I curl with Shiseido lash curler, use clinique lash primer, then buxom mascara.

    PS – I think i’m also going to start incorporating white eyeliner into my routine. I just need to find a retractable one!

    Have I missed you talking about this sunscreen before – best primer ever?!?! Do tell!! I still haven’t found a primer I like…I really just feel they make makeup fall off my face. 🙁 Love love when you do makeup and hair posts, you’re looking better than ever so I love to stay up on what you use!! How much of the setting spray do you use? Just once or throughout the day?

      I’ve talked about it a lot on Snapchat so that may be why I think I’ve already talked about it before! Oops! Should have shared! So caffeinated sunscreen tightens your skin and then some research also shows it could kill off cells already damaged by the sun. I put the Rosehip Oil on first, which helps with plumping, smoothing and dark circles! Then I apply the sunscreen with a beauty blender. Then I do my makeup! 🙂 I just do a few sprays of the setting spray in the morning and if I ever touch up I use the Caudalie Beauty Elixir as a spray! xo

    Love be this post! I just recently declutterrd my stash too and it’s so refreshing to get rid of old stuff. Hourglass has been one of my fav brands for years, I’m always surprised more people don’t talk about how awesome their powders are.
