Everyday Makeup Routine: Summer Edition

It is officially summertime in Indiana, so I have put together this blog to share my summer make-up routine & the products that I use since my skin tends to be more oily during this season!


Since I have oily skin, I have to wear a matte foundation to keep my makeup from sliding off of my face. My go-to full coverage foundation is the Estee` Lauder Double Wear. I typically will wear this look when I have an all day event going on, or if I am planning on going out for the night with some friends.

My favorites of the Estee Lauder Double Wear Liquid Foundation:

  • Full coverage
  • Light weight
  • Selection of shades
  • Packaging (It’s everything for a product ;))

If I am looking to cover small blemishes or have a thin layer over my skin for the SPF in the product or if I am wanting to even my skin tone – I will use the Maybelline BB Cream. This has been my holy grail for almost 4 years now! I swear by this BB cream for my skin type.

My favorites of the Maybelline BB Cream:

  • Light – Medium Coverage
  • Lightweight
  • Tube – Squeeze applicator
  • Selection between Fresh and Dream

My Favorites of the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Primer:

  • Lightweight
  • Perfect formula for the Summer Months
  • Fills pores effectively


Depending on what I am planning on doing for the day or how well I slept the night before (Dark Eye Circles) -I will use the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer. I typically only apply this product under or around my eyes and very seldemly on blemishes that I have at the time.

My Favorites of the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer:

  • Light – Medium Coverage
  • Light – Medium weight
  • Twist – sponge applicator
  • Shades available

** Occasionally, I will use my index finger to massage the concealer into my skin around my eyes


Blush is my favorite product to use when applying my makeup. I love the spectrum that one can use when applying – VERY dramatic, or just a hint to make yourself glow.

Physicians Formula Blush is by far my favorite blush that I have used! This blush is very subtle and gives the peachy look that I LOVE.

My favorites of the Physicians Formula Blush:

  • Lightweight
  • Easily applicable
  • Organic Product ** Always a plus
  • Takes forever to hit the bottom of the pan πŸ˜‰
  • Multiple shades within the pan
  • A little sparkle to an everyday look

Mascara + Eyeliner

Mascara is my go-to everyday look. If I’m not feeling makeup AT ALL, I always at least apply a layer of mascara to brighten my eyes.

My favorites of the Maybelline Total Temptation:

  • Smooth wand bristles
  • Natural coat
  • Extends and provides volume
  • Coconut extract

There is nothing more that I love than a nice winged eye. The key to the perfect wing is all about application and position. From the 10+ liquid eyeliners that I have tried in the past, this has been my all time FAV!

My favorites of the Tarte Cosmetics Maneater Liquid Eyeliner:

  • Smooth applicator
  • Control
  • Sharp pigment
  • Felt tip


Nice eyebrows are the perfect way to feel like a new woman. I was thankfully blessed with decent brows, but I still like to complete the full look with a brow tint when I go out.

My favorites of the Ulta Beauty Brow Tint:

  • Spoolie applicator
  • Natural overall look
  • Budget friendly

Translucent Powder

When going out for a full evening of activities – I have to make sure my look is going to stay put! This translucent powder does just the trick!

My favorites of the Naked Cosmetics Translucent Powder:

  • Lightweight
  • Easy dust-off
  • Keeps makeup in place for 6+ hours

This completes my summer makeup routine! I absolutely love this time of year, but also dread the heat when going out with a full face of makeup! These products are my holy grail! I hope this post gives y’all some good reviews and suggestions for a new everyday summer look – Y’all stay peachy!
