Summer Makeup

I’m infinitely appreciative of the drier heat where I live, compared to humidity, because sometimes I can’t fathom wearing makeup with very high heat and humidity! I love the colors/finishes of typical summer makeup–bronzes, corals, metallic finishes–and I dig dewy skin these days, too, which I find makes a stronger appearance every summer.

Limited Edition Launches

I don’t like when anything sells out in a matter of hours; I just think it’s frustrating, and it seems unnecessary–I feel like it creates the illusion that you have to buy or else you’re missing out. I don’t mind that some products are limited edition to coincide with a season or trend, but I think more brands should bring back shades/formulas into their permanent ranges when they prove successful AND fill a need in their ranges. (I think limited edition formulas, though, are super annoying!)

Facial Mists

They sure feel nice on a hot day or help if you’ve over-applied any powder-based products, but whether they’re doing a lot for my skin, I’m not sure. I keep a few that I happen to have in the refrigerator and use when I need a pick-me-up.

Coral Lipsticks

I don’t know if I’ve ever met a coral lipstick that I didn’t like in terms of color, but you won’t find me opting to wear anything really drying!

Powder Highlighters

Mostly raves–I love a great highlighter! They’re a definite weakness. I don’t like when they’re really, really pigmented and metallic, though, as I tend to personally opt for more medium-level highlighters that are buildable.

Blotting Powders

Since I have normal-to-dry skin, I don’t like if they highlight dryness, and I tend to prefer lighter-weight options since I don’t need a lot of oil control/absorption!
