Well it is officially HOT here in the Midwest. The rising temperature has an inverse affect on my beauty routine (temps rise, number of products used goes way way down). If you are anything like me and feel like your body literally starts melting when the temp reaches above 85 degrees you will understand my relaxed summer routine. Why bother putting makeup on when it is literally going to slide off your face the moment you step outside haha? A little mascara, a tinted moisturizer with SPF, eye liner if you are feeling sassy and you are good to go!
Coco Chanel was my childhood idol, second only to Martha Stewart (ok, they are both still my idols) and Coco believed you should always put yourself together at least a little bit before leaving the house. Thus while my beauty routine is greatly truncated in the summer, I don’t do away with it completely. One of the easiest ways I have found to still look polished yet natural is with a great nude lip color. Pictured above are my favorites currently in rotation.
