Monthly Moodboard: July 2014

It’s too hot for most activities these days, so minimal makeup, a pair of sunglasses and a dress are the only things I’m reaching for. Also, workout gear (even when I’m not working out, sorry!) is the first thing I put on when the temperature is 95+.

Lipstick + Lipgloss

Everyday Makeup Routine

My makeup routine is constantly changing. Recently, I’ve found products that have been working well together, so I figured the blogosphere needed to know. Face:  Primer: I always thought primer was pointless. It wasn’t until I bought THIS set that I realized its value. The Bare Minerals primer is perfection. My makeup actually lasts longer.
