Summer Makeup Revamp

I teamed up with TheFashionSpot.com to give you my Summer Makeup Revamp perfect for those New York City Summers. Check out the post on TheFashionSpot.com, and don't forget to see how Kiara Schwartz of Tobruckave revamps her look for the West coast.

You cannot escape the elements in New York City, for Summer that means walking around in the blazing sun and standing on the sauna-like subway platforms. I go for a more natural look in the Summer with minimal make-up since most of it just melts off throughout the daytime. My approach is a ‘less is more’ state of mind. As the days warm up and the train stations become more humid, I wean myself off the heavier products, which I rely on for Winter like eye shadows and lipstick, and instead focus on skin care. I don’t like to mess with all the fussy new products when it comes to my skin. I want something simple and reliable, which is why I love Neutrogena. Their moisturizer for sensitive skin is perfect for re-hydrating dry skin and I only need to apply one pump in the morning and at night on my face and neck. For my morning moisturizer application I switch it up to Neutrogena’s oil free moisture with SPF 15 for a little added protection. I apply a few brush strokes of Guerlain Meteorites in “Pink Fresh.” It is such a delicate powder only a faint glow is noticeable. Since I normally work up a light tan during this time of year, I never have to use a bronzer, but I do apply a few strokes of Chanel powder blush in “Tumulte” on the apples of my cheeks for a little color. I can literally say I am addicted to Dior Addict Lip Glow. I use it like chapstick, but the beauty of the product is it feels like a lip-balm, but it brings out a natural lip glow, and as a bonus is SPF 10. I either wear this alone or apply before applying a lipstick. During the warmer weather I wear brighter colors and Revlon “Orange Slip” is the perfect amount of color if I want a not-so-dramatic red lip. I phase out liquid eye-liner when the humidity gets too much since it can get a bit messy, and instead turn to Dior Diorshow “Blackout” waterproof mascara. I love “Daisy” by Marc Jacobs as a Summer scent since it has such an airy aroma. With this new beauty routine quickly turning into my favorite routine, I can safely say that I am prepared for those hot and sticky Summer days.
