Summer makeup routine

The lazy me during summer break reaches for easy time-saving makeup products. Here I am writing about my 10-minute summer makeup routine.

After my super-quick skincare routine, I put on concealer on the dark circles underneath my eyes using Collection 2000 Lasting concealer; lovely product that has a strong staying power beside providing nice coverage. I sometimes mix it up with Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer – I do not know if it is because mine is defective or not but I do not like it so far. I am still trying to use it up so I sometimes apply the mixture on pimples and dark spots.

For the main base, I love using Urban Decay Hybrid Complexion Perfector which feels more like a tinted moisturizer to me. The product has a light watery texture and provides a nice light to medium coverage. I especially like the semi-matte finish on the skin as well as the included SPF of 50. Wish there were lighter shades though…

Even if my skin tends to be dry on some areas, I still powder my face, slightly under my eyes and on my T-zone with my e.l.f High Definition Powder.

Skipping blush, bronzer and contouring, I move straight to my eyes by giving them a good curl to open them up – crucial stage for Asian eyes! After that, I tight-line my upper lash line with my beloved theSAEM Powerproof Mega Slim Liner to make my lashes appear fuller. Then I add a few coats of Clinique High Impact mascara and I am done with the eyes!

I also discovered Saemmul Browcara in dark brown by theSaem. This stuff stays put throughout the whole day once it is brushed onto the brows and adds just the right amount of definition.

As we are in the summer, I would rather keep my lips light with a sheer wash of bright color than a matte lips look so I use Maybelline Baby Lips in the shade Pink Shock.
