My Summer Make-Up Secrets

Beauty Brite Disclosure

When the weather changes from cool to warm, my make-up routine also requires some modification. I love discovering new products that make me look and feel my best, giving me the appearance of effortless summer skin! Here are a few of my favorites that have worked great for me this summer and I’m looking forward to sharing my experience with you.


My Summer Make-Up Secrets

I believe the first secret to healthy, beautiful skin is making sure you give it a little extra TLC. Masques are one of my favorite ways to pamper myself and detoxify my skin. Pur Minerals Dirty Girl Detoxifying Mudd Masque works effectively and doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin.

Apply the mudd masque to clean, damp skin. Allow the masque to set on your skin for about 20 minutes (I use this opportunity to read a book, watch my favorite show, or play catch-up on household chores). Be sure to rinse the product with warm water and you’ll be amazed at how tightened and fresh your skin feels. I have also found that a little dab of this masque works as a great spot treatment for pimples.  Pur Minerals Dirty Girl Detoxifying Mudd Masque is available for purchase at Amazon.

Unfortunately, as an adult I still struggle with oily skin. In the summer, I tend to feel extra self-conscious because the heat and humidity make my face appear shinier than usual. For me, it’s important to have a powder that will work overtime to neutralize my oily skin and not clog my pores. I have had terrific success so far with YBF Neutralizing Pressed Powder !

If I need just a little coverage, I can wear this product alone. If I need a little extra coverage, I can apply this powder over my foundation as a setting product; my make-up won’t smudge or budge! It conceals my little imperfections, camouflages redness and irritation, and the compact fits perfectly in my purse. Paraben and Cruelty Free! YBF Neutralizing Pressed Powder is available for purchase at Amazon.


My Summer Make-Up Secrets

I love mineral-based cosmetics! They have done wonders for my skin and always leave me with a great, light-weight feel. However, the journey to find the right bronzer and blush had always been a struggle for me. Many times I had been left with a too glittery or sparkly sheen on my skin that looked unnatural and gaudy. Having the opportunity to try out Senna Cosmetics was very exciting for me! Senna Cosmetics was created in 1976 by an award-winning makeup artist that wanted to design wonderful cosmetics for the everyday woman.

Senna Brilliant Bronze in Sunset is created with fresh water pearls, amino acids, and protein. My skin was left with a healthy, tanned sheen that never left me with that unnatural, sparkly finish.

I was a little nervous to try Senna Brilliant Blush in Tango Marango because I thought the color might be a little too vibrant for me. However, it left a gentle peach/apricot glow on my skin that looked pretty and youthful.

Senna Blushes and Bronzers are perfect for achieving a healthy, lively, and beautiful glow to skin. I love that they are mineral-based and are also good for my skin! Senna Bronzers and Blushes are available for purchase at Amazon.


My Summer Make-Up Secrets


I have so much love for a good eyeshadow primer. To me, it is an essential, like a great foundation or a perfect shade of lipstick. I need a primer that will work over time; taking me from the office to a few cocktails with my best friends.

Pur Minerals Cease Crease Eye Shadow Primer has been the answer to my prayers. This soothing formula nourishes my skin while maintaining the coverage I need for my makeup. To prep skin before eye make-up application, apply a dab to eye lid. Cease Crease Primer has kept my eye-makeup smudge-proof throughout the humidity of summer. I love it! Pur Minerals Cease Crease Eye Shadow Primer is available at Amazon.

Mascara is crucial; the right kind can be your greatest asset. I always try to find products that will not only help me look my best, but are also beneficial. Pur Mineral’s Big Look Mascara is created with Argan Oil, Vitamin E, Omega 3 and 9 Fatty Acids, and antioxidants to give your lashes a nice dose of needed nutrients.

My biggest pet peeve is big, nasty clumps when I’m applying mascara. I love that the wand delivers clump-free results every time I use it and no flaking! I have also noticed that my lashes have seemed to really grow and thicken since I’ve been using Pur Mineral’s Big Look Mascara. This has become a daily necessity in my purse! Pur Mineral’s Big Look Mascara is available at Amazon.

These are my summer makeup and skincare MVPs; my favorite products that beat the heat and keep my makeup looking on point through daily humidity and hot summer nights. I hope you get a chance to try them out for yourself!
