    i try and stay away from all the face make up. it’s just too much for the skin – especially where i live! it’s humid even when there’s no sun!! horrible weather. :(
    eyeliner, mascara, concealer, lip balm and gloss. simple simple! :)
    i wish i’d take more care of my skin like other ladies who commented up there – but i just never remember to apply sunscreen on a normal day. i only remember whenever it’s time to go to the beach! even though i know how important sunscreen is :P

    I’m pretty bad too viv, I don’t wear sunscreen unless it comes in my foundation or moisturizer! :P

    My essentials are waterproof mascara and tendertones (I just got Hush Hush and just ordered another one last night! :S) Miss.Fizz is also a nice summery colour, although my sister tells me it makes me look like I have porno lips! LOL!

    tinted moisturizer, jergens natural glow lotion, sun screen, a bright but pretty blush, great sunglasses, cute bathing suit, and a hott guy =].

  13. Kharina

    Definitely shiseido sunscreen lotion SPF 55 I believe?…smells great too!

  14. My favourite sunscreen 50+ SPF Avene and water spray from the same brand.
    Chanel Hydramax+ as daily moisturizer and Guerlain Happylogy for nightime.
    My face powder and a cute mac lipglass, as Baby sparkles from dazzleglass.

  15. Skyler

    Sunglasses (!!), moisturizer or face primer with SPF, lipgloss/balm with SPF (Tendertones!), more summery eye shadow shades (I don’t wear as many dark colours in summer), and lighter perfume scents. Other than that, not much changes with my beauty routine. But honestly, we have such a high level of humidity that I wish I didn’t have to wear make-up when I went out. (But I do.) It just melts off most of the time, even with a primer. You sweat any time you’re outside, basically. It’s really gross. And frizzy hair galore. Tons of rain too, and I’m sure you know what that does to make-up, hair and curled eye lashes even if you’re under an umbrella (there’s still all that moisture in the air). Oy. I hate summer, unlike most people. Not just for beauty reasons but because I hate heat and my eyes are super sensitive to the sun. I’d rather it be fall all year ’round.

    • Hi Skyler,

      Sunglasses, DUH! Such a summer essential ;)

      It’s too bad you hate summer, though! I love summer-fall. That perfect time where it’s not the wretched hot heat of summer, but it hasn’t yet cooled off too much.
