My Summer Face

So I've been on a, practically, no make up tip since spring and I'm luvin it. I enjoy make up and beating other people's faces but there is something so liberating about wearing very little make up. Interesting, right? These days, I reserve a full face for special occasions. Here is my basic summer face that I absolutely adore.

* Brows: It's very rare I leave the house without these done. Your brows really frame your face and just by keeping them looking fresh, your face instantly looks glam. Depending on what the breeze is stricking me, I use a pencil (any retractable, dark brown one) or powder (dark brown eye shadow) and blend with a stiff, angle brush.

* Kohl/Kajal Eye Liner: I luv kohl liners b/c they seem more intense to me and you can smudge them for a smokey look if you like. This summer I've been rocking a soft, jade/green color on my lash lines: Rimmel Soft Kohl Kajal Pencil in Jungle Green or Wet n Wild Kohl Eyeliner in Turqoise . I like how this color looks on my eyes, with my skintone and is a lil more exciting than basic black liner.

* Mascara: I'm still rocking with Physician's Formula Organic Wear mascara and it is still my favorite! Click here to check out my review I did on it last summer. I still feel the same way about it.

* Lipgloss: Since I like my eyes green, I keep my lips nude/flesh colors. Right now I'm diggin peach or champagney brown color glosses. I have no specific favorites, I'll use whateva. Lol.

#that'sallfolks This look is simple and gives my face a pulled together look that accentuates what I already have going on. Besides, less is definitely more in this New York City humid, summer heat.

What does your summer face consist of?

I've been doing the same thing. Just letting my face breathe! I just tried BareMinerals foundation and I love it!! Very light with a little coverage. I also do my eyebrows with a little eyebrow shadow. I finish with a little ligloss and eyeliner.
