Okay guys, summer is in full swing in Chicago and that means that things are starting to get a bit uncomfortable. This past weekend we saw record breaking humidity and a strong heatwave in the city; lets just say that I walked around in a pool of my own sweat all weekend. I know, super sexy.
I’ve learned throughout my last few summers in Chicago, is that a full face of makeup is just a no go during the humid few weeks of the year. That’s why I developed a quick 5 minute summer beauty routine to get me out the door quickly, but won’t cause full face melt.
My 5 minute makeup routine starts and ends with a great eye look. In my opinion, nothing is sexier on the face than bold eyes. During a recent trip to Target, I picked up a new mascara that intrigued me. The new Rimmel Volume Colourist Mascara gradually tints your eyelashes over time (2 weeks is recommended) with daily use. Umm…. YES PLEASE! As someone who has naturally blonde eyelashes that look non-existant without a heavy coat of mascara, this sounded like a heaven sent. I also picked up a few other Rimmel beauty products like the Rimmel Brow This Way Sculpting Kit & the Rimmel Colour Precise Eyeliner Pen to complete my look. Also there was a 25% off coupon for all Rimmel products on Cartwheel…gotta love a deal!
STEP 1: // SUNSCREEN, SUNSCREEN, SUNSCREEN!
If there is one thing that every single beauty guru will tell you, it’s to wear sunscreen all day everyday. Make sure that you find a brand that agrees with your skin and make it a daily habit to put it on under your makeup. Especially when the summer sun is extra strong.
STEP 2 // BROW GAME STRONG
It’s important to keep your summer beauty routine simple but dramatic in all the right places. Ladies, this is where you step up your brow game with a strong brows. Rimmel’s Brow This Way Sculpting Kit includes a gel/powder duo in one that I’m currently loving.
STEP 3 // COPY THE ADELE
I personally am a huge fan of Adele’s eye makeup; cat eye is a strong look. I tend to forgo the heavy eye shadow in the summer and simply go for a dramatic cat eye. I find it’s easier to do when you use a liquid eye pencil like Rimmel’s Colour Precise Eyeliner which creates a nice matte finish.
STEP 4 // LOAD UP THE VOLUME
Mascara is an amazing product. Not only does it make your lashes look long and thick, but it holds up to the summer heat really well. I pile on the Rimmel Volume Colourist Mascara every morning for a subtle finish to my everyday summer makeup routine.
And just like that you are done and headed out the door with a fresh face that won’t melt and a beauty product that’s working over time for you!
