As the seasons change, so should your beauty routine!  Temperature, sun exposure, and humidity can all play a huge role in how your makeup sits on your skin and what products you should be using.  Keep reading for a few of my personal essential spring to summer swaps.  


Foundation to Tinted Moisturizer with SPF

Full coverage is out and dewy tinted moisturizer is in! I love going lighter in the warmer months. With all the extra sweat and humidity, a lighter foundation helps keep my makeup from sliding off my skin.  Plus who doesn’t love (and need) extra SPF in the summer?

My favorite tinted moisturizer... 

Resibo Self Love BB Cream

A Matte Lip to a Gloss

Don’t get me wrong, I love a matte lip.  But when running around doing errands in the heat, a gloss is a bit more manageable.  Say goodbye to lipstick stains on the inside of your mask and hello to a fruity, summery gloss!

My favorite gloss... 

Stay Golden Shot Gloss in Wifey


Eye Palette to Cream Eyeshadow

Once again, I find myself 100% more busy during the summertime.  When running from the gym to work, a cream eyeshadow is the way to go for me.  All it takes is a quick swipe on each eye and you’re good to go.  No more shading and blending; this season is all about ease!

My favorite cream shadow...

Mellow Cosmetics Glitter Chrome Eyeshadow in Golden Glow


Powder Blush to Cream Blush

You can’t go wrong with a stick blush.  Its creamy texture will soften right into the skin, enhancing its glowy sheen.  Plus, there’s no brush needed!  A cream blush is perfect for on-the-go use or a for a quick touch-up after brunch!

My favorite cream blush... 

Purlisse Blush Glow BB Cheek Color in Vivid Coral


Warm Perfume to Floral Perfume

Nothing flaunts warm weather like a flirty and floral perfume.  I find floral scents so refreshing and lively after a winter of vanillas.  Every woman needs a signature summer scent.  What’s yours?

My favorite floral scents...

Riddle Oil Roll-On Oil in Poppy - 20mL Riddle Oil Roll-On Oil in Muse - 8mL
$95.00 $50.00
