Summer Makeup Routine

By |July 25th, 2018|

Easy Drugstore Summer Makeup Routine

Summer means enjoying more time with friends and family doing all the fun things you love. But let’s face it, we all want to look somewhat put-together while we’re out in the sun, right? What if you can bolt out the door and have more time for all that summer fun while looking fresh all day? As a bonus, you can do it on a budget! No fancy skills needed, no expensive products required, and in no time at all!


 

Moisturize

image15

It’s always important to moisturize your skin before makeup application. An affordable, non-sticky feeling moisturizer pick is one from Cerave. It has ceramides that replenish the natural lipids that are lost from exposure to harsh environmental factors and Hyaluronic acid that helps retain the skin’s natural moisture. It’s lightweight and sinks right into the skin without leaving a sticky feeling. Perfect for the summer heat!

Featured Product: Cerave Daily Moisturizing Lotion

 

Sunscreen

image10

Wear sunscreen! We’ll never get tired of emphasizing this part. Neutrogena makes the most lightweight sunscreen without leaving that dreaded white cast, so there’s no excuse to skip this part.

Featured Product: Neutrogena UltraSheer Dry-Touch Sunblock Broad Spectrum SPF 55

 

BB Cream or Tinted Moisturizer

Even out your skin tone and cover some minor imperfections with either a BB cream or a tinted moisturizer. Here are some affordable options for you!

image14

Maybelline’s Dream Fresh BB Cream offers sheer coverage with SPF 30. If all you need is just to even out your skin tone and some added skincare benefits, this is the product for you!

Featured Product: Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream 8-In-1 Skin Perfector

image20

A travel-friendly option is one from Physicians Formula. If you don’t want to lug around a separate moisturizer and face sunscreen, this product will keep you moisturized, protected from the sun and even out your complexion all in one go! And did I mention that it‘s waterproof? The mind is blown!

Featured Product: Physicians Formula Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Work It Marathonista SPF 40 Tinted Moisturizer

image18

Need more coverage? LA Girl’s BB cream will do the job without emptying your pockets! It provides medium coverage, and its HD formula keeps your skin looking flawless for summer photos!

Featured Product: LA Girl Pro BB Cream HD

 

Concealer

Untitled-1

Another trick is to just use concealer since you’re most likely to conceal any dark under-eye circles or skin blemishes anyway. So why not use it to even out your skin tone too, right? Talk about packing light! Our picks are from Maybelline and one from Catrice. The Maybelline Fit Me Concealer gives you that natural finish with amazing coverage! Perfect for those who have dry skin. We’re including the one from Catrice as a waterproof option and as a great product for hiding those dreaded under-eye circles. While it offers one of the best coverage across any concealers, both drugstore and high-end, the downside is its very limited shade range. Ehem, calling out Catrice – more shades, please!

Featured Product: Maybelline Fit Me Concealer and Catrice Liquid Camouflage Concealer

 

Powder

Untitled-2

Dry skin or not, the summer heat is nobody’s friend. Maybelline’s loose setting powder will give you that airbrushed effect without any cakiness. Let’s be honest, Maybelline’s been killing it lately being comparable if not better than high-end brands! Not a fan of loose powder? Catrice’s powder compact will give you that mattified look without breaking the bank! And another hooray for Catrice because guess what, it’s waterproof too!

Featured Product: Maybelline Fit Me Loose Finishing Powder and Catrice Prime & Fine Waterproof Mattifying Powder

 

Bronzer

Untitled-3

Bring back some of the colors in your face with a light dusting of bronzer with the most coveted Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer! It has a light version for the fairest of the fair, plus a fresh tropical scent that will transport you back to your summer vacay even after it’s over. A cheaper pick is one from Wet n’ Wild. Sure, it’s marketed as a contour palette, but the one in the shade Dulce de Leche is just bomb for bronzing up the skin!

Featured Product: Physicians Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer and Wet n’ Wild MegaGlo Contouring Palette

 

Blush

Untitled-4

There’s nothing better like a healthy flush in your cheeks! We have a satin option from Essence – truly affordable without sacrificing quality! This cutesy little thing of blush gives you that fresh summer glow with a hint of natural color. For a matte option, LA Girl is your top pick with a wide range of shades to choose from too!

Featured Product: Essence Satin Touch Blush and LA Girl Just Blushing Powder

 

Highlight

Untitled-5

Take advantage of the summer to display a natural or even a blinding glow! After all, there’s nothing wrong with a little sparkle – or a crapload, whichever you prefer. Highlight the high points of your cheeks, your temples, the bridge of the nose and your cupid’s bow for that lovely glow. If you’re wearing something that exposes your shoulders and collarbones, put a little glow on them too! Go for Essence Pure Nude Highlighter or LA Girl’s highlighting stick for a subtle glow. A more mid-range option is one from Milani. It could take you from natural to “Woah!” without emphasizing textured skin. Now if you want a blinding highlight, go for Maybelline’s Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter or Colour pops Supershock highlighters. Can you tell that we love highlighters?

Featured Product: Essence Pure Nude Highlighter, LA Girl Highlight Contour Stick, Milani Strobelight Instant Glow Powder, Maybelline Master Chrome Metallic Highlighter and Colourpop Supershock Highlighter

 

Setting Spray

image19

Stay confident that your fresh makeup look is not ruined 5 minutes after stepping out the door with a trusty setting spray. We would recommend this step after applying your powder products. After all, these are the ones that you’d actually want to set. Using a setting spray also helps meld everything together to give off a more natural effect after you’re finished with your makeup. Milani’s setting spray is one of the most trusted setting sprays at the drugstore that will actually make your makeup stay put all day!

Featured Product: Milani Make It Last Setting Spray

 

Brows

Untitled-6

Frame your face with a budge-proof brow product that will last through heat, sweat and even swimming! Not everyone has an “actual” hefty amount of brow hairs, so for filling in any sparse areas, this skinny brow pencil from NYX is your best pick. Its budge-proof formula comes in a wide shade range, so stop wasting your hard-earned cash on more expensive skinny brow pencils! For those blessed ones who just want to have their brows stay in place (cause they already have actual brow hairs), we have an option for you too. Essence has a tinted brow mascara that will have your brows sitting in place without that crunchy feel that other brow mascaras might give you.

Featured Product: NYX Micro Brow Pencil and Essence Make Me Eyebrow Gel Mascara

 

Lashes

Untitled-7

You can actually skip this step, but if you’re not comfortable going out “without any lashes on”, we have recommendations for you too. A waterproof mascara from Covergirl has been around for years for a reason. It’s definitely budge-proof! But if you’re not willing to deal with removing waterproof mascara at the end of the day, a washable option from L’Oreal is a top pick too. Both will give you the blackest black lashes without going over your budget.

Featured Product: Covergirl Clump Crusher by Lashblast Water Resistant Mascara and L’Oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara

 

Lips

image7

Don’t forget to give your lips a pop of color! Here’s a trick, take some of your favorite long-wearing liquid lipstick and dab some on using your fingertip. Spread a thin, thin layer all over your lips just to give it a nice wash of color. Voilà! A tinted lip effect that will last you through meals and swimming! Our top pick? Maybelline’s Superstay Matte Ink lippies. A non-drying, budge-proof formula that’s a definite steal for its quality and staying power! It has a wide range of shades, from nude to vampy, plus an amazing shade of orange that’s perfect for the summer months. You’re welcome!

Featured Product: Maybelline Superstay Matte Ink Lip Color

There you go. Enjoy the rest of the summer with this easy and affordable makeup routine!

Summer Essentials

By |July 1st, 2018|

Summer Essentials: Top 7 items you need to endure and enjoy the summer heat!

image1

A summer trip isn’t all fun and games. It’s important to make sure that you keep yourself safe from the harmful effects of the sun – not to mention the heat while you have fun to spend time with friends and family. While some of these items are known to be staples for summer, there might still be some key points that you’re missing out on so read on.

Sunscreen

When choosing a sunscreen, opt for one with “broad spectrum” protection. Sunscreen with this label will protect you against both UVA and UVB rays.

While all sunscreen products will protect you against UVB rays, which mainly causes sunburns and skin cancers, not all sunscreen products offer protection against UVA rays – which also contribute to skin cancers AND premature aging. Here are other key things that you should remember about sunscreen:

  • SPF – Choose a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher. This number plays an important role in choosing the right sunscreen as it indicates the level of protection that the sunscreen provides against UVB rays. The higher the number, the more protection you have against the harmful effects of the sun.
  • Water Resistant -Don’t mistake the label “water resistant” for “waterproof”. Remember that no sunscreen products are waterproof nor are they sweatproof. For sunscreen labels that have “water resistant” on it, check it further for any specification about how long it will typically last in the skin after swimming or sweating.
  • Reapplication -The key to using sunscreen is reapplication. It’s not a one-time thing. See to it that you reapply sunscreen products every 2 hours and even more often if you are swimming or sweating.

 

Lip Balm with SPF

Our lips are very prone to losing moisture and even more prone to sun damage. Using regular lip balms or shiny lip gloss will not work in your favor if you use them while you’re out in the sun – especially lip gloss. They absorb sunlight and increase the risk of getting a sunburn on your lips. Ouch!
You’ll find that most lip balms with SPF are only labeled SPF 15. But nowadays, there are brands that offer lip balms with higher SPF. Here are a couple of suggestions:

 

Sunglasses

Protect your eyes from the harmful effects of the sun with sunglasses that block at least 99% of the sun. Here are some suggested brands of sunglasses with sun protection.

Sun Hat

Protect your scalp and the high points of your face with a wide-brimmed hat. Yes, your scalp is skin too. Sun hats and sunglasses also prevent squinting of the eyes when exposed to bright sunlight which contributes to developing crow’s feet around the eyes.

Aloe Vera Gel

Nothing soothes sunburns better than an aloe vera gel. They’re surprisingly inexpensive, cooling, refreshing, and they sink into the skin almost immediately. So keep your favorite brand of aloe vera soothing gel handy for your summer trips.

Lightweight Jacket

Summer vacations and the beach usually go hand in hand. Be ready with a lightweight jacket, like a hoodie or a denim jacket in case you stay out by the beach until night time as it gets much colder. Protect yourself from the cold breeze while enjoying drinks by the bonfire.

Reusable Water Bottle

Staying hydrated is key when you’re out in the sun. Sugary drinks, while refreshing when they’re ice cold, will leave you feeling a lot more parched after a while. So it’s still best to stick to the OG thirst quencher Help the environment by keeping a reusable water bottle handy so you don’t contribute more waste and garbage.

There you have it! Enjoy the rest of the summer with your loved ones while keeping yourself and everyone safe from the harmful effects of the sun!
