One of the beauty questions I get asked the most is, “How do you keep your makeup from running or smudging in the Summer?” Well today I’m here to share all of my budge proof makeup secrets! I’ve tried literally everything on the market…creaseless powders, high quality primers, waterproof foundations, setting sprays…literally everything, but never did I ever think a $5 product from Walmart would work the best!
I discovered Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation about two years ago and I’ve been a HUGE fan ever since. It’s light mousse texture is so silky smooth that you have to try it to believe it. The foundation applies flawlessly to create a natural look that stays matte and shine free for hours. This is the first time I used Rimmel London The Only 1 Lipstick and I was pleasantly surprised at the how moisturizing and long wearing it is. I often find that lipsticks claim that their long lasting are also extremely drying and this lipstick is the complete opposite.
In the Summer I tend to go for a more natural daytime look. Most days I keep my skin glowing and contoured (because who doesn’t love a great bronzed and highlighted look in the Summer), my eye makeup minimal and a bold color on my lips. If you’re a frequent reader to my blog you know that I like to experiment with makeup and while I may tone my look down in the Summer I still like to have fun with it. I think I’ve finally found the best budge proof summer makeup routine so don’t let the summer heat rain on your makeup parade and kick your warm weather routine up a notch with these steps.
The Best Budge Proof Summer Makeup Routine:
- Prep your skin with your favorite moisturizer with SPF. Apply a pea sized drop of Rimmel London Stay Matte Foundation (I’m wearing shade 200 Soft Beige) to enter face with clean finger tips. If you tend to get oily on your t-zone dust Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder on your nose, forehead and chin with a large fluffy brush.
- Use Rimmel London Kate Sculpting Palette in Golden Bronze to contour and highlight face. Apply bronzer to cheekbones, hairline and jawbone. Apply blush to apples of cheeks and just above brows. Highlight cheekbones and under brows.
- Apply a shimmery gold shadow on lids. Curl lashes with an eyelash curler. Line waterline with Rimmel London ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Liner in Nude. Apply two coats of Rimmel London ScandalEyes Retro Glam Mascara (a FAVORITE) to upper and lower lashes. Fill brows with Rimmel London Brow This Way Eyebrow Sculpting Kit (I’m wearing Blonde).
- Finish lips with Rimmel London The Only 1 Lipstick in Listen Up.
