Now that we’re approaching the summer months, it’s time to perfect your summer fresh face makeup routine! During the winter many people wear heavier makeup, but in summer when the layers come off and you’re sporting bare arms and legs, it’s only right to have a fresh faced makeup routine to match. Since many of us are not blessed with absolutely flawless skin, we need something to achieve that smooth, fresh, dewy, and naturally flawless base that is essential for the fresh faced look.
I had the exciting opportunity to partner with bareMinerals this month to try out their brand new, first ever liquid foundation, bareSkin, that will hit the shelves May 1st! I’ve been a bareMinerals customer for over three years now (and absolutely love it), and have been slowly replacing everything in my makeup bag with every product they sell. So I was beyond thrilled to be able to try out their newest innovative product. And you guys, it’s awesome.
The foundation has the bare minimum ingredients, all of which are natural and renewing (vitamin c, coconut and lilac plant), so it won’t clog your pores or make you breakout, both of which I can attest to. In fact, my pores look clearer since I’ve started using it. You guys, I’ve tried so many liquid foundations, all of which I haven’t loved for one reason or another, so I’m thrilled to finally a liquid foundation that I love and can feel good about wearing!
After applying my bareSkin foundation, I added bronzer, blush, a swipe of eyeliner pencil, and mascara, and filled in my eyebrows, then finished the look with a shimmery pale pink gloss (I’ll share all the details, products, and a step by step tomorrow)!
This fresh and natural makeup look was just begging for a summery look to go with it, so I threw a summery dress and vest over my lace top, and paired it with some wedge sandals and aviators for a sunny afternoon downtown!
