My Summer Beauty Routine

by - July 06, 2015

Quick, easy and natural are necessities when it comes to my makeup and hair routines in the summer.  Not that I don't have the time, because I do.  I just don't have the patience in summer to spend more than 10 minutes getting ready.  Also, why is it that my hair feels extra heavy, thick and uncontrollable when it's this hot out? I have zero patience.  Hence the disappearance of my bangs....which also means I'm about 2 weeks overdue for a cut/colour.

Anyway, here's a quick rundown of what I use in the summer.   If I know I'm not leaving the house, the it's the bare minimum (tinted moisturizer, eyeliner and mascara)  if I'm going somewhere, I'll throw on bronzer, highlighter and blush and some shadow.  

Here are some of my favourites: 
(I use the Marc Jacobs' obsessed...not that pink colour.....)
I did a couple little videos to show you how simple my beauty routine is....but mostly I just wanted to experiment with iMovie as I haven't had a chance in the 3 months since I got this monster of a machine. I'm not too sure if I like it, but whatever. Here ya go.

  1. Ooohhh I totally love this!! I have to try that Bobbi Brown tinted moisturizer. And I like your new designs!! :)

  2. My secret to looking put together is lipstick. I simply wear powder and lipstick on weekends and still feel like I put my face on.

  3. I need to pay serious attention to this because your makeup is always on point. And that hair tutorial - love it! I really wish I could do something like that, but I'm pretty sure I'm incapable. Plus I have too much hair - another reason to cut some off!

  4. I love this! I use the Bobby Brown concealer...need to try other things. I love those videos so much, you need to make more! Love the ending how it's like a movie, so creative!

  5. 1. Love your new header! When did you do that!?
    2. Your 5 min beauty routine is way mate than I do! Haha!
    3. You make that French braid hairstyle look so easy! Well done!

  6. okay I lied it's Marc Jacob concealer...goes to show how much I pay attention :)

  7. I would like to make more and hopefully will, I'm just finding it hard to learn a new system. Ugh. The movie thing was a template in iMovie

  8. 1- Redesigning my blog was on my list of things for the summer and with all the fire smoke and having to stay indoors, this weekend was the perfect time to figure things out.
    2-The 5 mins definitely feels long
    3- Thanks, I'm glad I didn't show a closeup, it's not as pretty as it looks ;)

  9. Thanks! The tinted moisturizer really has great coverage and it's SPF 15...the Yves St. Laurent one I like better b/c it's a color corrector too and SPF 35, but it's pricey :(

  10. I am very braid-challenged and am slowly learning.

  11. I love your video's! Your hair looks so cute! I'm all for an easy summer beauty routine! Thanks for sharing!
