Lauren’s Picks: Summer Beauty

Summer Beauty-2Summer Beauty
Summer is all about effortless beauty. Creating a glowing look that’s not too overdone is the way to go.

I’ve been starting my daily look with the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream to combine sun protection with a bit of coverage. I like the light-weight formula of this gel cream, especially during the summer months–anything too heavy or cakey feels uncomfortable in the heat. For spots or undereye circles, I use the  MAC Studio Conceal and Correct Palette; the mix of colors gives me flexibility to use darker colors as my skin tans.

To warm up my look and create some contour, I dust the Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder just under my cheekbones with the Bobbi Brown Bronzer Brush, and then use my fingers to dab NARS The Multiple on the apples of my cheeks for highlight.

To keep the eyes simple, I line with Bobbi Brown Long Wear Cream Shadow Stick (this can be blended into a smokey eye for nighttime, too) and then coat my lashes with two coats of Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (seriously, the best mascara I’ve ever used)! Then, finish the look with a swipe of the bareMinerals Pop of Passion Lip Oil Balm for a bit of color and moisturizer.

  • Today was in the 50s and, after the polar vortex, felt like it might as well be summertime! I’m ready to bust out pastels and white jeans already! #springstyle #sscollective #jcrewalways #everdaymadewell
  • Welcome February. The month of flowers, chocolate, and all things love. #valentines #4121main #weekendbouquet
  • With these below freezing temps, the heat in our apartment can’t keep up. That meant we all had to do some serious snuggling last night. Josie didn’t seem to mind one bit though 🤱🏻 She is a magnet to snuggles.
What are you guys going to stay warm during the polar vortex? I can’t wear enough layers! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Speaking of, I linked this down parka on my Poshmark. After our little one arrived, it became even more important to make room for only the essentials—which meant having only one parka (against my will). Great color and quality, per usual, from @eddiebauer for anyone in need! I linked my whole closet in my bio and on the blog to see more!
