The Bare Minerals BarePro Performance Wear Foundation is my go-to foundation for an everyday “no makeup” makeup look. It blends well with my skin and I love the natural matte finish. I recently found out that this was reformulated and is now called BarePro 16-HR Skin-Perfecting Powder Foundation. I’m excited to try the new BarePro because it is formulated to be sweat, humidity, and transfer-resistant.
2. EYEBROW GEL
I’ve tried a lot of eyebrow gels, but I always go back to Benefit Cosmetics 24-HR Brow Setter Clear Brow Gel. I love the dual-sided wand that easily shapes my brows. The gel also keeps my brows in place for hours without leaving any unsightly flakes.
3. WATERPROOF MASCARA
I’ve recently tried Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof Mascara and I totally love it! It does a great job of lengthening and thickening my lashes. It also keeps my lashes lifted for hours without smudging.
Yes… that’s right. I did not misspell BLONZER. I’m talking about bareMinerals Gen Nude Blonzer. It’s a hybrid blush and bronzer in one. I got the shade Kiss of Pink which is a nice warm pink shade. To create a sunkissed look, I lightly sweep the brush on my cheeks, nose, and temples.
5. LIPSTICK + LIP GLOSS
I saw a makeup video of Hailey Bieber and I got inspired to try the lip combo that she used – bareMinerals Mineralist Hydra-Smoothing Lipstick in Grace (nude pink) and bareMinerals Mineralist Lip Gloss-Balm in Ingenuity (dusty pink). The lipstick has a nice satin finish and the lip gloss-balm is so hydrating.

Keep It Simple. Keep It Minimal. Keep it Fuss-Free.
Summer is not the time to wear heavy makeup. I am prone to breakouts, so I try to take good care of my skin first by having a good skincare routine (not skipping my sunscreen). Then, I pick only a few makeup products to use. My must-haves are lightweight foundation (preferably non-greasy and non-comedogenic), brow gel, waterproof mascara, blush or bronzer, and hydrating lip products.
How about you? What are some of your makeup must-haves this summer? Please share in the comments! I’d love to hear from you.
Thank you so much for reading and have a GREAT SUMMER ahead 😊
