My Summer Makeup Routine

I’m excited to share my summer makeup routine today! After a year and a half of wearing barely any makeup, it has been fun to slowly get back to it.

It’s crazy to me how my relationship with makeup has evolved in recent years. From hardly ever leaving the house without a full face of glam, to wearing absolutely nothing, to now wearing just enough to make me feel pretty and put-together. Maybe it’s a growth in confidence and finally feeling comfortable in my own skin. Maybe quarantine forced me to evaluate some of my routines and habits. Whatever it is, I never thought that I’d get to a place where I would feel okay about wearing makeup that didn’t involve a full face of foundation and complicated eye shadow looks.

These are all the products that I’ve been using as part of my summer makeup routine. I love that for daytime I get the minimal, fresh-faced look I want. But, it’s easy enough to jazz up for nighttime with some eyeliner and a deeper lip color.
