Summer is just right around the corner and over here in Hawai’i, the scorching hot and humid weather is something I loathe with so much passion. No kidding and with that said, I’m all for minimal and multi-tasking makeups. The less products, the better so here are 3 makeups every woman needs to welcome summer.
Let’s start with this BB cream with SPF 30 from Andalou Naturals. If you prefer a slightly dewy look, look no further because this beauty got you covered! This bb cream functions in three ways: moisturizer, light foundation, sunscreen. It’s buildable if you want more coverage but one generous pump is enough for me to moisturize and protect my face from sun. Unlike other bb creams that feel heavy and tacky on the face, this one is a delight to apply and blend. If you don’t like the dewy effect, a simple hack is to lightly pat blotting paper and set with your favorite powder. (Bonus read: vegan skincare for acne)
This eyeshadow cream is from Supergoop, yes the makers of sunscreens! And guess what, it has spf 30 component! If you’re not doing it yet, don’t forget to apply sunscreen on your lids (ears also!) because you can get sunburn and skin cancer on these areas too. I like the idea that this “eye” sunscreen has pigment (available in several shades, I have it in sunset which is bronze) because it encourages beauty junkies to use it as eye makeup. You can use it on its own or as base to a similar-shade eyeshadow which I normally do.
Another multi-tasking makeup that I love is this ambient lighting palette from Hourglass. This brand has plenty of vegan options (their vision is to become 100% vegan by 2020). The first three shades from the top are setting/highlighting powders, the bottom shades are bronzer and blush. While this is technically a face palette, I use the bronzer and deeper shade of blush as eyeshadow. For that well-rested look, I lightly brush the top 3 shades shades all over my face, concentrating on the under eyes, nose bridge and chin (t-zone). Don’t own this palette? Cover Fx has a very similar one, take a look!
Finally, here’s the finished look wearing these three multitasking makeups…
