    This product is usually what I start my routine off with. It contains nutrients that protect your face from the makeup you put on later. You can use this product before putting on foundation. This product has an amazing scent that will leave you.

2. To Even Out Your Skin-tone

Khiels Ultra Facial Tinted Moisturizer SPF 25

  • Khiel's Ultra Facial Tinted Moisturizer SPF 25
    If you don’t want to have heavy makeup on but would like some coverage this is an ideal product.  Simple apply it to your face and it will even out blemishes and give you a healthy glow. It also protects your face from the sun. Perfect if you are running out and don’t have the time to do a full makeup routine. It comes in three shades so you can find your best match for your skin-type.

3. Concealing

Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener

  • Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener
    We don’t always have the luxury of sleeping all night and so eye bags might be a problem. Not to worry! This eye brightener is just that, an eye brightener. Put some of this under your eyes and you will automatically notice a difference. Your face will look fresh and you will look more awake. Over time it has an effect of reducing your darkness under eye bags, like a dream right?

4. Reducing Shine and Holding Your Look Together

MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder

  • MAC Select Sheer Pressed Powder
    This powder comes in a convenient compact that fits in your bag. It comes in many shades to perfectly match your skin. The compact includes a sponge applicator, but I prefer using a brush because you can clean it easily. For a natural look only apply on your T-zone.

Now you have finished the basics to your summer look. Applying some mascara will make your eyes pop. Or putting some blush on the apples of your cheeks will also enhance your look. The choices are infinite but the basics have been given to you. Go enjoy yourself; nothing stops you from looking good now!
