Summer Skin

I don't know about anyone else, but I have gotten extremely tanned in this ninth circle of hell we've been calling "summer" here on the East Coast. It has been the type of weather that absolutely demands 'makeup lite'. Under normal circumstances, I would wear foundation, but not only does my complexion no longer match it, I'm pretty certain that any heavy cosmetics would melt right off my skin. So my regiment of late has been quite simple:

1. Moisturize with Ambi Even & Clear Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30
2. Bronzer - Stila bronze Illuminating Finishing Powder on my T-Zone, forehead and chin (this is the key to it looking like I've applied a full 'face'!)
3. Dust lids with a light coat of powder eyeshadow in a neutral color
4. Mascara
5. Lip gloss
6. Go!

How has the heat affected how you apply your makeup?


  1. I don't know if i've been living under a rock or what but i've just discovered primer...oil-controlling primer to be specific. I have crazy oily skin and this is the first product i've tried that really helps to control shine throughout the day. I have theone by Iman but I also hear that the one by MAC is great so i'll be trying that too. Anyway, I put that on with a little bronzer, lip gloss and mascara (i got the brown! Me likey much better)

  2. Oh yay! I'm glad you like the brown mascara! I've become familiar with eye shadow primer in the past year, but not with total primer. I'll have to look into that; it sounds like there are different types for different skin types?...
