My "Go-To 5 Minute Everyday" Summer Makeup Look!

As much as I love makeup and experimenting with new looks, my everyday makeup look is minimalistic, but dewy and bright! 

It's Summer and it's hot outside, so I try to keep the look really light. (And really, with a 3 month old, I only get a few minutes to throw on some makeup before running out!)

This is what I wear for my everyday casual look - think, running errands, meeting up with my friends, family dinners, etc. I don't wear every layer of makeup that I would in a full makeup look, so don't be surprised to see less products! 

Here are a look at the products I use:

-Base Makeup ~ Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer. This is a lightweight formula and provides a natural finish! 
-Concealer ~ Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer. This is my ultimate favorite concealer and it's lovely. I only use this if I have dark circles or blemishes - if not, then I skip this step. 
-Setting ~ Hourglass Ambient Light Powder in Luminous Light. I have been talking about this product for over 2 years on the blog now - this is my go-to face powder. I don't set my makeup on a light day, but I will dust a really light layer of this all over my face for a gentle glow! 
-Blush ~ Essence Silky Touch Blush in Babydoll. This is a great drugstore basic pink blush for a perfect Summer flush! 
-Highlighter ~ TheBalm Cosmetics Mary-Lou Manizer Highlighter. This is a great, light, honey-hued highlighter that adds the perfect amount of pop to my cheeks! 
-Mascara ~ Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara. Waterproof is a must for Summer - you get hot or sweaty and no-one wants streaky mascara!
-Brows ~ It Cosmetics Universal Brow Pencil. This has been my go-to brow pencil for a while - it applies really naturally, but can be built up to a more dramatic look. The shade is perfect for me. (I do skip this step once in a while if there isn't time, but I generally go for a quick, natural application). 
-Lips ~ Too Faced Peach Oil Lip Gloss in Papa Don't Peach. I love this lipgloss so much - it is the perfect Summer shade! It has great coverage, but stays semi-sheer for a light look. Plus it smells amazing! 
-Setting Spray ~ Tatcha Dewy Skin Face Mist. Setting Spray is a Summer Must for me - keep your makeup in place despite any weather, heat, water, etc. This one really adds the dewy touch that gives me the perfect glow! 

Are any of these your go-to everyday makeup products? 


  1. I just got a sample of that TF BTS waterproof mascara and I've been loving it! I still need to try that Tatcha spray, and ambient powder!

  2. Glad to see some love for Essence! I feel like they're so underrated!

  3. I love this look on you, so simple but really pretty.

  4. I got that tiny The Balm highlighter in an ipsy bag -- used up EVERY drop and bought the full size. Love the pretty, natural look!

    1. Yes I love this highlighter - I know I will use every drop and then repurchase!
