It’s coming on summer, which means it’s time to drastically simplify our make up routines and embrace the freckly, suntanned, just-woke-up-looking-fabulous natural look. I’m so ready!
The one bit of make up I can never part with in the summer time is eyeliner. Here is my reasoning: you can’t really wear false lashes in the summer (heat and humidity aren’t a glue’s best friend), you don’t really want to wear a ton of foundation or blush (it’ll melt off), and statement lipstick doesn’t go so well with ice cream cones. Ya dig?
For the summer I like a good swipe of cat eye eyeliner, some waterproof mascara, and the natural flush of a good, hot day. Okay, maybe some tinted moisturizer. (With built in SPF, sure!)
The trick to pulling this off lies in finding a summer-appropriate eye liner. One that won’t drip down your face when the sun is at its business, and one that won’t require any touch ups for those days when you’re running from afternoon playgrounds to evening back yard BBQs. And luckily for us all, I’ve spent the last week testing a slew of my drugstore’s finest 24-hour, waterproof, smudge-proof eyeliner specimens. Of course not all do what they claim to do . . . and some come out of left field and surprise us all.
Are you ready? The summer sun is waiting!
