If you are a longtime reader you know my love for tarte makeup runs deep. Shape tape and Amazonian Clay are no brainers, but I wanted to share a few products that will help you maintain that summer glow beyond the summer months. I always feel happier and more confident when I have a make up on my skin, but my goal is for it to look natural. I think what I love about tarte makeup is that besides the fact that they are always formulated without: Parabens, Mineral Oil, Phthalates, Triclosan, Sodium, Lauryl, Sulfate, and Gluten, tarte products LAST long! They have rich pigments and stay put.
Here are a few products I have been wearing daily to help maintain that summer glow (because let’s be honest), while I do let my body get some sun exposure, I am constantly protecting my face so I rely on makeup to make my skin feel bronzed and summery!
Shape Tape // The first step of my make up routine is always Shape Tape – it buffs out fine lines and covers dark circles like a champ. Fun Fact: one of these bad boys is sold every 12 seconds!
Amazonian Clay Foundation // I know many of you agree with me that this is game changing foundation. When I want a bit more coverage than a tinted moisturizer has to offer, this is what I use. I know it sounds too good to be true to say it gives you a “flawless finish” but those are really the only words to describe it. It is a full coverage foundation, but the texture of the product is “whipped” which makes it feel very breathable on my skin. Every time I wear it, people ask if I did something different with my skin. No lie!
Amazonian Clay Matte Waterproof Bronzer // I use the shade ‘hotel heiress’ for reference. This buildable bronzer that is great for summer months because it is waterproof and has a matte finish. I apply it after the Amazonian Clay Foundation anywhere the sun would naturally hit my face (cheeks, forehead, chin… sometimes I even give my neck a swipe!)
Breezy Cream Blush // Nothing says summer skin more than a slightly dewy finish. I love using cream blush in the summer months for that “just pinched” look. You can apply this with your fingers or use a brush.
Shape Tape Waterproof Body Make Up // Ok this is a product I don’t use everyday, but if I had a wedding or event wear my legs were showing, this is a great product to use to help blur out spider veins (and I have plenty of them!)
