Go to makeup

     Summer is winding and so I have found myself soaking up all thats left.  Trips to the pool, doing 
     my morning workout outside, going out to get ice cream, and summer makeup is all still on the 
     agenda.  Don't get me wrong though, I am SO excited for fall, as it is my favorite season! But 
     because I am still in summer mode I thought I would share with you my all the products I have 
     reaching for to create my go to look.  I hope you enjoy! 
     When it comes to foundation I rarely change it up.  I am very faithful to the Covergirl Outlast 
     Stay Luminous Foundation (I am in the color 820: creamy natural). I like my foundation quite 
     dewy because I tend to have dryer skin and a matte finish just doesn't work for my skin type 
     plus I feel like my skin looks more glowy and natural.  For concealer I have been using the cover 
     stick by Maybelline. This stuff is really thick and full coverage.  I find it lasts way longer than 
     some of the others I have used in the past. I use the color light beige which is slightly lighter than
     my actual skin tone.  I find that this helps brighten up my under eye area. 
     The bronzer that I have been reaching for the most lately is my Chocolate Soleil by Too Faced
     which (bonus!) actually smells like chocolate!  I really like the matte finish and I find it really 
     blendable, which can kind of be a hassle with bronzer sometimes. 
     It's no secret that my favorite spring/summer blush of all time is Full of Joy by MAC it is THE 
     perfect baby doll pink with just a hint of lavender.  It makes the face look so dewy and fresh and 
     I just think it should be a staple in every girls collection. 
     On to my favorite part, highlight! I received the OFRA You Glow Girl highlighter in my August 
     Ipsy bag and I got so excited because I saw it reviewed on Rachhloves YouTube channel 
     (the girl knows about highlight!) and I really wanted to try it.  It is no joke and has quickly 
     become one of my favorites.  I have been using it almost everyday and it just gives the most 
     beautiful glow to the high points of the face.  I will definitely be repurchasing it in the full size 
     when I am finished with the sample and I highly recommend it to all of you!
      When it comes to eyes I have been keeping it really simple.  I have been loving the NARS 
      eyeshadow duo in the shade Alhambra.  They are so pigmented and really easy to work with.  So 
      what I do is take the gold shade (on the right) and sweep it all over my eyelid then I just take a 
      little bit of my bronzer and pop a little bit in the crease to add a little bit of definition.  I then use 
      the champaign shade on the left and put a little bit underneath my brow bone and in the inner 
      corner of my eye. After my eyeshadow has been applied I take a brown liner (from Covergirl) and
      line my upper eyelid, then I smudge it out.  I also use it to line the rim of my bottom lid.  I think 
      the brown really complements the gold toned shades plus its really soft.  I find that for me, black      
      liner is often too harsh for an everyday look. 
     Last but not least are lips.  Lilac Flush by Maybelline has been my go to color.  It's such a 
     beautiful shade of pink and it complements the blush I've been using really well.  It's also really 
     moisturizing, which is always a plus.  I just put a little bit on my lips and then really rub it in with 
     my fingers to give it a sheerer look.  I think it looks a little bit more understated this way. 

Well that's it, guys, just pop on some mascara and you're done! Overall I think this look is really simple and perfect for soaking up the remainder of summer! I hope you all have a blessed week!
