BEAUTY BAR: Makeup for Lost Time

Whether it be your summer job, daily errands or even vacation, your summer schedule can sometimes leave you as tied up as you are during the school year. This busy Fashionista has got the perfect 15 minute beauty routine that will help you solve all of your time-crunching problems and show you how to (literally) “makeup” for lost time during your busy summer.

She starts her day off with Chanel primer, “Le Jour de Chanel” (one of my personal favorites). It is light and oxygen-infused, leaving skin feeling lifted and vibrant in the summer heat. She then applies a quick, smooth layer of DiorSkin “Nude Air” foundation. One of the lightest foundations on the market, it is perfect for summer. Not only does the dropper application make it easily applicable, but the finish leaves you face feeling baby’s-butt smooth. She tops this off with DiorSkin “Nude Air” compact powder and a quick layer of “Sweet Mandarin Bush” by Laura Mercier. A quick highlight around the eyes with NARS Albatross leaves some sparkle around the eyes to help eliminate those out-all-night summer eye bags. She applies a few quick swipes of Yves Saint Laurent Shocking Mascara for added volume and lines the eyes with Chanel eyeliner in #10 and uses the matching eyebrow pencil to fill in the ends of the brows. The finishing touches include a few  brushes of Bare Minerals “The High Dive” Bronzer to add the sun-kissed summer look to the cheeks and forehead.

She rocked this summer day glam look to her internship but it is perfect for just about every daily summer occasion. The makeup is light and breathable, which is great for avoiding clogged pores in the summer and not looking overdone. She paired this look with a super cute patterned skirt by LOFT, shirt by Express and Nine West sandals.
