Summer time! And the makeup livin’ should be easy! That’s pretty much my makeup philosophy now that it’s hot outside. I don’t know about you, but I can’t stand heavy makeup in the summer. I freak out just thinking about the heat and the sweat and the makeup clogging my pores…UGGH. I just want an easy summer makeup that doesn’t feel heavy and cakey in the summer heat, and I have found one! Today I’m going to show you my go-to summer look featuring some new products from Mary Kay Summer 2016.
Let’s start with me before any makeup. I’ve applied my favourite face sunscreen of course, as should you! Never leave home without it. Please!
In the summer, I can’t really stand heavy foundations, so the new Mary Kay Undereye Corrector(17.50) and Mary Kay Perfecting Concealers(17.50) are just what the hot weather ordered!
The Mary Kay Undereye Corrector is a peach shade that colour-corrects bluish-purple shadows and brightens the undereye area. The Mary Kay Perfecting Concealers are so easy to use to get a natural even-looking complexion and come in 6 shades to match pretty much any skin tone.
Mary Kay Perfecting Concealers are creamy, buildable and blend in beautifully. They conceal minor imperfections like blemishes, dark shadows and age spots and last all day even though they are a lightweight formula.
All I do is dot some of the Mary Kay Perfecting Concealers where I need some help. The peachy under eye corrector goes under my eyes, and I like using two shades of concealer on my face-a bit peachier of a shade where I have more redness like on my cheeks, and one that matches my complexion more in the centre of my face. Then I take a damp Beauty Blender and blend away!
Voila! Easy, natural coverage that’s so lightweight! I do set my face with a bit of powder, just for some extra insurance and staying power in the heat. Use what ever your favourite powder happens to be, but if you’re sticking with Mary Kay, I’d use the Mary Kay Sheer Mineral Pressed Powder-it’s my fave.
Eyes and Lips are next!
Behold the Limited-Edition Mary Kay Natural Palette Set in the Rose Gold Limited-Edition Compact($76) in all it’s Rose Gold Glory:
The eyeshadow shades of Sweet Cream, Spun Silk, Moonstone, Rosegold, Driftwood, Espresso are so natural and so pretty. They blend beautifully, even the mattes! It’s a perfect travel palette too.
The Limited-Edition Beauty That Counts® Hearts Together Lipstick $22 is a soft pink creme lipstick that’s sheer and oh so pretty of a pink. I love that $1 from the sale of each lipstick will be donated to the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation that supports women living with cancer through the Look Good Feel Better program. The foundation also gives grants to women’s shelters and community outreach programs.
Mary Kay Lash Intensity Mascara $22 has a specially designed, asymmetrical Double-Impact brush that really fans out your lashes and adds lots of length. It’s a great summer mascara because it’s super smudge resistant.
Just add your favourite blush and you’re ready to go!
If you want a brighter summer lipstick, there’s the Mary Kay Limited-Edition True Dimensions Sheer Lipstick in Flamenco Red ($19):
Sheer, smooth, illuminating with a touch of shimmer, the True Dimensions Lipsticks are SO moisturizing you’d swear you were wearing a lip balm instead. This is my fave Mary Kay Lipstick formula for sure, and they feel a lot like a higher priced sheer lipstick that used to be my favourite(rhymes with Dior HAHA). 😛
All products are available right now online at www.marykay.ca or from your favourite Mary Kay Rep.
