Everyday Summer Makeup Routine!

In the heat that Pakistan is bestowed with currently, it'll be a wasted effort to go out in the day time with makeup on as it will just proceed to melt off your face and turn you into a hot-mess before you know it! Totally not the look any of us are going for I'm sure. BUT non-nautral beauties like moi, cant just go on without any shred of makeup on our faces. So here's my makeup routine for the summer time!


The makeup bag I choose to throw in my school bag is a Luscious Cosmetics one which came with the Twilight Kit.


 For my face I start of with Neutrogena's SPF 100 Dry Touch Sun Block (not pictured) and follow up with ULTA Fabulous Face concealer which is does a good job of covering up my amazingly dark under eye circles to some extent. I then powder over Rimmel's Stay Matte Pressed Powder in Translucent all over my face just to soak up any oils that may want to pour out (ew!) specially from my T-Zone. ULTA's blush in Flush (that rhymes!) add a ntural pink tone to my otherwise dull cheeks.


For my eyes I prefer not to use any eyeshadow as that's just an extra hassle in my opinion. I line my upper eye lid with 4U2's DFY9 Liner in Black after filling in my non-existent eye brows with Rimmel's Brow Pencil in Brown. I prefer not to use black for my lower lash-line in the summers, and add a pop of color that add a bit of dimension to my plain brown eyes by putting on a green eyeliner in the shade 040 Eucalyptus by Miss Sporty. I follow this up with Maybelline Great Lash Mascara which does alot for my lashes without running down my face in the heat.


For my lips I ALWAYS, ALWAYS put on Body Shop's Born Lippy in Strawberry and the lipstick  I choose to wear over that since I hate lip-glosses, is either BeCute's Lipstick in the shade 341 (reviewed here) or Luscious Signature Lipstick in shade 06.


And, finally here are the swatches of the above mentioned products in paticular order whatsoever. The faint pink you see above the heart is a swatch of the ULTA blush in Flush. The heart is actually what 4U2'S black liner looks like and the green is obviously Miss Sporty's Eucalyptus liner. The first lipstick swatch is of the BeCute Lipstick in shade 341, and the more pinky one is the Luscious Cosmetics Signature Lipstick in shade 06.

Good Lord! I have talked alot in the post haha. Hope you enjoyed reading through it. What are your favorite makeup products for the summers? Let me know in the comments below.
