Summer Beauty Routine


It shouldn’t be a big surprise that I don’t wear a ton of make up, nor am I into a ton of make up.

I mean, come on. I was recently getting my make up done for the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic and I told the MUA that I wanted “annoying eyebrows”. Clearly, I know nothing.

Over the last year or so, I’ve been getting a bit more into make up in terms of actually putting in “some” effort daily. I used to NEVER wear any make up to work. And now I’m getting a leeeeeeeeettttle better at it. I think…someone please tell me if I look like a clown or something.

FACE: Tatcha Dewy Skin Moisturizer

Getting that dewy glow is the main objective since I don’t have much else going on. I picked up this Tatcha moisturizer simply because it had the word “dewy” in it. Yes, I’m 100% that kind of shopper…whatever, sue me. When it goes on, it feels a little thick, but it sinks in nicely. It definitely gives you a nice glow and keeps your skin hydrated for the day ahead of you.

while I let that sink in and dry…

BROW: it! Cosmetics Brow Power/ glossier Boy Brow

I honestly didn’t start doing my brows until last year. I’ve always had dark brows, and they were pretty filled in. Last year, I started becoming more and more into a dramatic brow, so I decided to learn how to fill them in myself more. I’ve gotten my eyebrows tinted before, but don’t do it too regularly, so this routine currently works for me. I like the Brow Power because it isn’t too thick, easy to use, and is a great shade for my brows. I like to fill in my brows in the front mostly, and don’t have to do too much to the middle or ends of them. After, I like to use Boy Brow (in brown) to give a little additional color. The gel really helps keep your brows in place all day.

now that the moisturizer is dry…

FACE: Murad & Goop SPF

SUNSCREEEEEEN. I think everyone knows JUST how important sunscreen is for your face. Unfortunately, I only started applying sunscreen DAILY this year. I also only started applying sunscreen while I was outside in the sun (pool, beach, etc.) last year. I know, it’s bad, but hey, I learned before I was 30. ANYWAY…

I’m not dedicated to one product, so I wanted to share both!

  • Murad City Skin SPF Moisturizer: I’ve talked about this product and brand before, but it’s still part of my routine! I like to add this before heading out the door to start my morning off protected from SPF, city pollutants, and blue light.
  • Goop SPF: I got this sample at the VCPC and honestly was very surprised how much I liked it! Since it was a tester size, I keep it in my bag with me at all times for when I need to reapply throughout the day. Honestly, it goes on SO smooth and SO invisible. Definitely recommend!

FACE: Beautycounter Dew Skin

This was a very recent purchase…as in last Friday. I picked this up when we stopped at goop in Nantucket. I’ve been wanting to try some Beautycounter products for a while now (honestly Ashlee and Brittany are my go to gals for knowledge), but it’s a bit overwhelming since I don’t ACTUALLY need anything. But ya know, since this was a leisurely stroll around the store, I was able to test out their Dew Skin tinted moisturizer (in No.2). I ended up loving it SO much and bought it on the spot.

CHEEK: Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge

I am ALL about a good cheek color. Luckily my sister got a new product, so she gave this to me. Honestly, I rub this onto my cheeks with my fingers. It gives the perfect “just pinched” look. I use color Pale Pink.

CHEEK: Tom Ford Glow Drops / Almay Instant Glow

Again, v into the dewy look, so a good highlight is a must. My sister and I decided to splurge on Tom Ford Glow Drops  a few months ago, and it was honestly a great purchase. And let me tell ya, if you’re thinking about purchasing, just remember a liiiiiittle goes a long way. For best results, I highly recommend using a beauty blender. When I’m in a hurry, my fingers have to do the trick.

If you’re not looking to splurge, then I recommend this Almay duo highlight. The stick portion is super easy to swipe on and go!

So as you guys can see, I’m just suuuuper into make up;) But I do love this look and don’t mind doing it every day. This finished look is usually about 5 minutes from start to finish…and gives you the perfect summer glow!
