As soon as Summer begins to make an appearance I am all over my makeup routine making big changes. My whole routine becomes completely different than it is during any other time of the year. The want for lighter products becomes real. I need to seek out Summer makeup that isn’t going to melt away after an hour in the sun and humidity. It’s super easy to give your routine a Summer Makeup refresh and pick out products that are actually going to work for you in the heat, at the pool or on the beach!

Summer Makeup Beauty Tips & Tricks! Products That won't melt away in the heat! #makeup #beauty

There are certain products that you can swap out and add in these Summer Makeup products to keep you looking fresh all season long. No more worrying about raccoon eyes while walking down the street in 90 degree weather. Spontaneous pool party? These products will absolutely have you covered! Everything is super light so your face won’t feel weighed down and cakey and you can enjoy your hot Summer days without worrying about your makeup!  Today we’re going to share some of my favorite products in each of these categories!

Summer Makeup: Primers for your eyes and face that well help keep your makeup in the right place! Heat proof & sweat proof picks! #makeup #beauty

First up are these Summer Makeup: Primers, this is going to be the most important part of any summer makeup routine. Primers are going to work for you and hold everything in place be it your whole face or just your eye shadow you’ll want a primer in your makeup bag!

Summer Makeup Tips: Tinted Moisturizers that will keep you fresh faced and sweat proof all season long! #beauty #makeup

Next up are the Summer Makeup: Tinted Moisturizers & a BB cream because this one works like tinted moisturizer and I absolutely love it. In the summer months it’s a good idea to swap out your foundation for one of these because a heavy and full coverage foundation is going to be all wrong for you. As you sweat, it’s going to work against you and clog your pores. Have you used liquid foundation in the dead of Summer? Melting, pooling and just overall gross is probably what you were left with. These lightweight tinted moisturizers will keep your foundation fresh! They’re super light and will keep your skin looking dewy without looking oily. A bonus? They all have SPF which most regular liquid foundations will not have.

Summer Makeup: Cream Blush! Swap out your powders for a cream and lose the cakey look during the Summer months with these hot product picks! #makeup #beauty

This is my favorite; Summer Makeup: Cream Blushes are some of the most awesome little inventions in the history of ever. Swapping out a powder product for a cream base in the Summer is going to be something you’re wanting to do with most of your products that are interchangeable like this. Powders applied in the Summer are most likely going to end up looking cakey, while a cream will stay put and look subtle and flushed all day long.

Next up, Summer Makeup: Cream Bronzers and you can best believe I will be rocking out with these all Summer long. I love, love, love bronzers! In the summer I go with cream based bronzing products for the same reason as I choose cream blush, it doesn’t get cakey!

NARS ORGAMSILLUMINATOR – $30

NARS MULTIPLE – $39

ESTEE LAUDER BRONZE GODDESS – $30
