10 Minute Makeup
When it comes to doing my makeup in the summertime, I like to keep things quick, easy, and
fresh. This means I’m mostly drawn to creamy products that can easily be applied with my
fingers and will simply melt into the skin over the course of the hot day. Here’s my ten minute
To prep my skin for both the day and my makeup, I first pat a dropper-full of Dr. Roebuck’s
Ultimate Hydrating Serum onto my face. It has quite a thick consistency, but sinks in nicely and
pretty much acts as a moisturizer for my typically pretty hydrated skin. I follow that up with a
couple pumps of the Glossier Invisible Shield. It’s a super light daily sunscreen that provides a
good base for what’s to follow.
Since I prefer something lightweight and dewy on a hot day, my two go tos have been the Juice
Beauty Stem Cellular CC Cream and the Milk Makeup Sunshine Skin Tint when I need a bit
more coverage. For any spots I want to hide, I love the Glossier Stretch Concealer. It’s super
creamy and buildable, and leaves a natural skin-like finish.
Color & Highlight
To add a bit of warmth to the face, I use the Milk Makeup Matte Bronzer in Baked. A couple of
swipes under the cheekbones and onto the forehead can be easily blended with fingers for a
natural, sunkissed look. To liven up the face, I add Glossier Cloud Paint in either Puff or Beam
to my cheeks and to finish up, RMS Living Luminizer gets patted onto the high points of my
EYES AND BROWS
To keep doing my brows super quick and easy, I simply use Glossier Boy Brow and brush my
brows up and out. A few swipes of L’Oreal Voluminous Waterproof Mascara tends to be all I do
for my eyes, though I sometimes may put a bit of either highlighter, blush, or bronzer onto my
One of the best things about this look is that practically any sort of lip would look good with it.
My favorites are Glossier’s lip gloss, Glossier Balm Dotcom in any flavor, or Colourpop’s Lippie
Stix in Safari, which is a sheer orangey-red.
Last but not least, a spritz with a face mist like the Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist sets
makeup and helps to blend it all into the skin for a super natural and hydrated finish.
That’s it! A super quick and easy routine for a nice youthful summertime look!
