4 Ways to Update Your Makeup Bag For Summer

I'm not a beauty blogger by any means! I have stuck to the same beauty routine for the past two years while maybe changing up my lipstick game once in a while. That said I think there are little things you can do to change up your routine to get ready for summer besides the "add sunscreen" - that just goes without saying in my book. Here are four things I did:
Philosophy A-Z Cream, Revlon Lip Butter, ELF contour palette
  1. Add a lighter base: Winter is for the heavy matte foundations, summer is for lightweight BB creams or tinted moisturizers! On the most humid of days, I skip that altogether and wear sunscreen and concealer on the parts I need it. 
  2. Ditch the powders: I go for less makeup in the summer because I usually end up sweating it off anyway. Powders are usually the first to go so I just skip it altogether. Instead I opt for cream products like my Nars "The Multiple." This can be used as a blush, a highlighter, eyeshadow, and lipstick! And the cream consistency will make sure it lasts even on the hottest of days.
  3. Bring on the bronzer: I also like the idea of skipping the blush and going for a more sun-kissed look with a bronzer during the summer months! 
  4. Swap the lip colors: I like going with bright when it's sunny out and my lip colors are no exception! I like bright fuchsias and reds!
What are some ways you've updated your beauty routine?


  1. I tend to wear BB Cream only year round, but it's pretty warm here year round too! I like the idea of updating the bright lip colours too, summer is a great time for brights in all forms :)

  3. Dear Deborah, thanks a lot for your good tips! I have to admit I don't change a lot in my winter / summer makeup - I wear only mostly a brighter lipstick :) But you inspired me now to be more carefully in this context. Thanks and enjoy your weekend!

  4. I've added bronzer recently too. As a pale chick I find blush makes me too pinky and bronzer makes me look more healthy.
