summer shortcuts: makeup

Growing up in Alabama and Arkansas, I thought I was used to the heat, but this summer has tested even the best of us! I'm all for a lazy summer, but this heat has caused me to want to be super lazy.....especially when it comes to my beauty routine. So I thought I would share a few of my makeup short cuts for the summer.

This product is a gal's dream. I really do think it's magic. It blends into your skin so effortlessly, and knowing it has 45 SPF means I don't have to have 2 creams on my face all day. Not to mention, it gives you the perfect sun kissed glow. Even for those like me who have the skin color of Casper!

2. Lash Tinting + Shu Uemura Eyelash curler
I should have taken a before and after picture of my eyelashes when I got them tinted. It's amazing. I look like I am wearing mascara all the time and it was so inexpensive! So now my routine is just a curl with my Shu Uemura curler and I'm out the door. I'm saving mascara for date night! And for those of you who think an eyelash curler is an eye lash curler no matter what brand it is, go ahead and try the Shu Uemura. You have never seen your lashes look so beautiful! Also if you are in need of a great place to get tinted, visit Lori and WaxNashville!

Basically, this is a gloss in a balm! During the day, I love a look of a gloss, but don't love the stickiness. This balm not only gives the same color and shine as a gloss, it also has SPF 15. Another product doing double duty! I also put this on my cheeks when they need a little color! My favorite is cabernet!

What are some of your beauty shortcuts?

My whole life is a beauty shortcut because I always forget to wear makeup. I DO wear this, though: and am thoroughly obsessed. And I didn't know getting your eyelashes tinted was so cheap. I'm SO going!!!
