From The Beauty Bible: Light Daytime Looks You’ll Love

    When it comes to makeup in the summer, especially daytime makeup less is always more. This isn’t the time to cake on foundation and crazy contours, but rather the time for light and natural looking beauty. Of course, during those summer nights there’s nothing wrong with going darker, but in the bold summer sun, heavy makeup and lines are just way too visible. With that being said, here are some of my favorite summer beauty products for the daytime look:

    Stila Illuminating CC Cream

    While Stila has a couple of other good CC cream options, this is my favorite for the summer look. For those who don’t know, CC cream is similar to foundation but with a lighter coverage (between BB cream and Foundation in heaviness). This particular one is perfect for smoothing/evening your skin tone and taking away redness. All of Stila’s CC creams are color correcting and will naturally blend to your skin tone, so you won’t have to try to find your color match. Another tip, if you’re looking for a dewier look, mix the illuminating and bronze CC creams together! A word of caution, though: their bronzing CC cream won’t match people with very pale complexions. The product gives your skin an illuminating glow and some coverage while still looking natural. It also has an SPF to help protect your skin from that harsh summer sun!

    Stila Mile High Lash

    As you can already tell, I’m a big fan of Stila products, and their Mile High Lash is another favorite of mine. This a great mascara for the natural look and one of my favorites of all time. It will lengthen lashes well without clumping or thickening. This will give you long and natural looking lashes. Caution: You will need to use makeup remover with this mascara, it doesn’t come off easily with just water.

    L.F Clear Brow & Lash Mascara

    This is a product that I just started using, and I already love. It is just a clear gloss, one side for your eyebrows and one for your lashes. The gloss brushes out the hairs, elongating slightly for your lashes and smoothing for your brows, so you don’t have to fill in your brows every day or put on mascara. The lash side is also great as a primer for your mascara too!

    Stila Dual Lip and Cheek Color

    I know, I know, but Stila just has great products! So this product is a liquid to solid, you apply by starting at your cheeks and blending back. This will give your cheeks a natural rosy look without the obvious glitter that will appear in most powder blushes. You can also apply the same color to your lip for facial symmetry.


    Another primary concern in the summer is our hair. The chlorine and humidity can dry and even damage our hair. This is my favorite conditioning treatment, you leave it on for 30 minutes right before your shower, shampoo and condition as usual, and it comes out smooth and silky. It handles that summer frizz and also helps to fight off split ends.

    Enjoy the sunshine and don’t be afraid to show off your natural beauty, ladies!
