Summertime is when I usually strip back my makeup and skin care routine to keep things minimal. I generally want to wear as little on my face as possible because I know I will inevitably just end up sweating it all off anyway. And having acne-prone skin makes me even more cautious about what I put on my face when it’s hot outside so as not to worsen my breakouts.
Luckily I found a few wonderful products that I’ve been loving this summer that have made getting ready a breeze! They’ve been my handy go-tos for the past 8 weeks so I can assuredly tell you that they work. They keep my makeup routine blissfully simple and most importantly, I don’t have to worry about breakouts when I use them.
- Urban Decay Naked Skin Hybrid Complexion Perfector. This little beauty has been a lifesaver for me! It’s much lighter than regular foundation, but still provides a decent amount of coverage, making it perfect for the summer. I love that it blends into my skin easily and I can hardly tell I even have it on!
- Rodial Glamolash Mascara XXL. I have very light lashes, so I’m obsessed with trying out new mascaras! Especially if I’m keeping the rest of my makeup simple, I’m all about having big, dark lashes. This one by Rodial has a pretty thick formula so it gives TONS of volume, so after one application I’m ready to go!
- Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer. If you didn’t already guess, the reason I love this concealer is because- as the name states- it’s ~weightless~. It provides seriously good coverage yet has an ultra lightweight feel that you just can’t beat in the summer! Paired with the Complexion Perfector, my face looks ready in minutes without hardly any effort.
- Belif The True Cream- Aqua Bomb. At the end of a hot summer’s day, my skin usually feels a bit dry and parched from all that sun. But I’m very picky about moisturizers because my skin is naturally s0 oily. So when I found this amazing product, I immediately fell in love and haven’t used anything else since! It’s an oil-free, gel cream with a SUPER light formula (seriously, it’s unreal!) that instantly makes your skin feel hydrated. I put it on at night and wake up with my skin feeling more refreshed than ever and without any extra blemishes. I could honestly rave about this product for ages, but instead I’ll leave it at this: If you have oily skin and you’re looking for a great nightly moisturizer, you NEED this product in your life. Trust me.
These products have been my favorites this summer because they’re simple, light, and safe for blemish-prone skin. They’ve faithfully gotten me through these crazy 115 degree Arizona days, so I trust they can help you too!
