Fun fact about me: I live in the South, where humidity during the summer months envelops you every time you step outside and temperatures can hover around 100º for days on end. In my opinion, the summer heat is relentless enough to make me want to do a complete overhaul of my makeup bag. In the cooler months of the year, I’m perfectly fine with matte products and powder formulas, as well as more opaque shades, but come summer, I want all of my makeup to be sheer and light. Glowing skin is the name of the game for me May through August.
In the summer, I tend to favor tinted products and more cream formulas, as well as lip products that are subtle and moisturizing. If it’s something I’d wear to the beach and not feel crazy doing so, it makes the cut. So what exactly have I ditched in favor of said sheer, glowy formulas? Well, I’ll tell ya.
