Minimal Makeup Monday

Hello beauties!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and also a fun Father’s Day for those of you who celebrated. It was an extremely hot weekend in SoCal and today was even hotter. The heat wave in Southern California is just beginning and just in time for the first day of Summer. I have to admit I am a little afraid of this heat this season. I am NOT ready lol.

Today was a whopping 108° and I definitely did not put on a full face of makeup. I did opt for my fave CC Compact by Amore Pacific which has an SPF of 50+ so definitely prepared for sun protection and skin protection. I went with a very minimal makeup look today so just applied some light concealer under my eyes to brighten (I do this daily on light to full coverage makeup days), used a tinted brow gel for a filled in look, and then lastly, some mascara to open up my eyes. I kept it light and dewy and just that for today’s hot hot weather. I didn’t drink any hot coffee today at all because of the heat so I made a yummy iced coffee instead.

Hope you all had a productive Monday so far and stay hydrated as this season officially kicks off today. Happy Summer beauties!

Today’s Essentials

Happy Thursday, dolls! I’ve been recovering from a lingering cold with bad allergies and finally feeling so much better! Glad to be back blogging and posting up on my social media again. 🤗

Here are today’s essentials: 

  • Benefit cosmetics Real Cheeky Party Holiday Blush palette 
  • Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Sand
  • NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Custard

As you know, I’m all about convenience when coming to makeup palettes and I love that the Benefit Real Cheeky Party Holiday Party Blush palette came with some of my fave Benefit products. I’m able to use bronzer, blush, highlighter, eyeliner, and mascara from one place – amazing and talk about a time saver! I kept it pretty easy and light with my makeup today (what else is new) with a tinted moisturizer instead of foundation and concealer of course, to brighten up my under eyes and overall complexion. 

I’ve been struggling with the worst allergies this season and therefore leaning more towards a light makeup look since I’ve been reaching for tissue a lot. Nobody likes wiping makeup off their face let alone reapplying. Lol
Have a great rest of the week beauties!
