(this is everyday mom routine)
Hey girlies! I’ve been wanting to get a summer beauty routine post out and I feel like it’s been in the works for a while now but I’ve tried some newer products lately and wanted to make sure I was 100% before sharing with you. I really like the natural look and I use as minimal products as I can because who wants to look like they have a lot of makeup on, I don’t. I’m going to go through two routines, my everyday mom routine for being around the house, running errands, going to the pool, etc… and then a make-up routine including all the items I use when I’m going out for a dressier occasion, date night, etc…
THE EVERYDAY MOM ROUTINE
I wash my face with a cleansing milk with white lily by Sisley-Paris called Lyslait, morning and night. It’s very calming on my skin and leaves it feeling fresh without any redness, dryness or irritation which I tend to get easily. Funny enough, I forgot this on our last vacation and used Aveeno baby soothing relief wash that we had in the house, and that worked great, too, at a much lower price point! Next I put on this Coola primer with SPF 30. I just started using it under my BB cream and feel like it goes on more evenly and stays on all day. I use this Coola BB cream in all the different colors depending on how much sun I have. I’m obsessed with all of them, my favorite BB cream ever. I love the glow it leaves on my face and it makes it feel so soft, even Brian noticed a difference! I like a lighter coverage that doesn’t look “cakey” and this definitely does the trick. I finish off my covering my lips with SPF as well, and once again, I use this Coola one.
If I’m feeling like I need a little extra on these days I line my eyes with my go-to quick-liner by Clinique in color, Slate and I use a waterproof mascara by Dior, here. Oh and how could I forget, the dark circles. I use this color-corrector by Bobbi Brown first in Peach-light/medium, and then this concealer on top. And that’s it for my normal day-to-day.

THE MAKEUP ROUTINE
The makeup routine starts off with everything I do in the everyday mom routine except for the eyes and lips. Once I have my Coola BB cream on, I use the Smashbox Contour Kit which is super easy to use and comes with instructions in case you need some assistance. Then I apply this glowing powder in color devotion which is A-MAZING. On my lips I use this pencil in color Dervish and fill them in with this pencil in color frivolous.
Lastly I finish with this Bobbi Brown finishing powder! And that’s pretty much it! One of these days I’m going to do a video tutorial, hopefully sooner than later!
