Let’s talk about summer makeup! I have given my face a much needed break this summer and can count on two hands and maybe one foot the number of times I’ve even bothered putting on my “face” since school let out.
Disclaimer: I’m not great at makeup and I’m trying to use up all the little things that I got in almost a year of Ipsy bags (Ipsy is a monthly subscription where you receive a makeup pouch with 5 items – I think it’s a great deal but I had too many pouches and wanted to use up what I had already gotten so I canceled.)

My current products- I pulled out all of the stops and used everything. I don’t always do this, but I did it for our purposes today. I don’t know if would recommend them all, but please ask if you have a specific question. Like I said, I’m trying to use up products and pare down after my Ipsy subscription accumulation.
I started with Trader Joe’s moisturizer, followed by Pore Professional (Ipsy) which is really great if you have big pores, then I did Dr. Brand’ts undereye (Ipsy), then Cover Girl under eye concealer on the far right (looks like a lipstick), then I did Cover Girl matte (love it), Charlotte Tilbury foundation, Cover Girl pressed powder, Tarte blush (Ipsy), lined brows with Brow Benefit, Cover Girl eyeshadow, liner from Estee Lauder free palette, mascara primer, mascara in the little blue tube (Ipsy), bronzer, highlighter, lipliner, Revlon lipstick, NYX gloss.
This took me:
I didn’t rush and I kind of took my sweet time.
Slightly more socially acceptable? The photo quality isn’t great – maybe the humidity in the bathroom?
What products can you recommend? Is there something you just wouldn’t want to live without?
