A Little Seersucker Sass

Makeup Must Haves

Posted on: September 1, 2012

I don’t know about y’all, but where I live in the South it is HOT.  I decided to live on campus this year because I thought it would be more convenient with all of my involvement.  Living on campus means that I walk everywhere in this heat.  One of the solutions has been to skip a few steps in my beauty routine, so that my makeup doesn’t literally melt down my face.  Here are my essentials:Makeup Must Haves
I start out by using Smashbox’s green primer.  My skin has a red undertone to it, so it helps blend that out.
I apply some powder after that, just because my skin is oily.
The next step is NARS Laguna bronzer.  I have the duo of Laguna/Orgasm, but I haven’t been wearing blush lately.  When I’m doing a full face, I’ll use a Smashbox highlighter to put some shimmer on my cheek bones.
I prime my eyes with Urban Decay’s primer before putting on my eyeshadow.  Also, I’m a big fan of gel eyeliner.  It goes on so much easier, and having the primer under it is a big help.  The last step is mascara… I am OBSESSED with Givenchy mascara.  It is worth the money.  I have Bambi lashes, and the best part is that it doesn’t irritate my sensitive eyes.
I love a nice, neutral gloss.  I have a pinkish one from NARS, but I picked up a peachy one from Revlon that does the trick.
What are your beauty secrets for summer?  I’d love to know!

For me the summer product number one is a sunscreen!

Do you have one that you recommend? all of the ones I’ve tried make my eyes hurt!

I would recommend Perfect Shield sun block by Pola. It has SPF30 PA+++, it’s very delicate, has a light texture and doesn’t whiten or irritate my skin.
