Some days I just want to get my butt out the door and don't really feel like going through the whole process of putting on what I like to jokingly call "my second face." And sometimes on really hot days, it just feels pointless to go to all that work just to see your face slowly melting off as the day progresses (yuck!). So this is my "no-makeup" face for days when I'm lazy, in a hurry, or sweltering.
FACE: Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm, Diorskin Nude Healthy Glow Summer Powder in Aurora (in future posts I'm just calling this Dior Aurora, 'cause the full name is a MOUTHFUL!), YSL Metallic Colorama face highlighter
EYES: Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin, Sephora Jumbo Liner Pencil in Beige (inner corners), MAC Lingering brow pencil, L'Oreal Voluminous Carbon Black mascara, Clinique Bottom Lash mascara
LIPS: Korres Lip Butter Glaze in Jasmine
I really love how the Dior Aurora bronzer makes my skin looks sun-kissed in a really natural way. It doesn't go orange on me AT ALL. It's definitely going to be a staple for me, I can tell already!
The Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Beauty Balm gives natural light coverage with SPF 25. I can't tell you yet if I prefer to Origins Vitazing, but I definitely like it. The SPF content does make it look kind of shimmery when you apply it, but I didn't feel like it washed me out. I took these pictures right after I did my makeup, but I will tell you my face was pretty shiny after a while - I kept grabbing for powder to touch up! I have combination skin, but if yours is oily I might steer clear! My skin is also sensitive, but this didn't irritate it.
I'm also REALLY loving the Korres Lip Butter Glaze in Jasmine. I just kind of grabbed it on a whim in the Sephora checkout line, but I'm so impressed with it! It tastes really yummy and goes on so smoothly with just the right amount of tint. It's also really compact in size - perfect to throw in my handbag. I'm definitely going to swatch the other shades on my next Sephora trip.
Hope you're all having a fab week. Talk to you soon!
As always, thanks for reading!
