Summer Makeup Routine

Hi, everyone! I hope you're all doing well this week. I am definitely trying to get back into the routine of posting every week, and will be doing so every Friday. I have tons of ideas for new posts, so be sure to subscribe to my blog by email over on the sidebar so you don't miss out!

So I know I'm not the only one who hates a face that feels caked full of makeup in the summer time. You sweat and your makeup ends up running down your face, and that's never cute. This is the routine that I apply when I want a very light, natural look but also want the sun protection that a BB cream provides. It's so essential to protect your skin during the harsh summer sun, especially if you have PIH (post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation), or dark spots, from acne like I do. Because of the sun's rays, this can make your hyperpigmentation appear even darker. The BB cream that I used is great for that because while giving light coverage over my scars, it also contains broad spectrum SPF 30. That makes it a win-win! And most of the products I listed below are from the drugstore, so they are very affordable and accessible.

Also, leave a comment below if you would like for me to make a separate post about sunscreens that are POC (people of color) friendly.

Products used:
Colourpop Super Shock Bronzer in "Happy Hour" - Discontinued
Colormates Eyebrow Pencil in "Dark Brown"
