Summer Make-Up Routine

I used to wear very simple make up back in high school, just enough to cover some blemishes here and there, in general just feel more confident. Nowadays, I really enjoy the whole thing and I feel truly creative experimenting with different shades, depending on my mood and outfits.

En el bachillerato/ secundaria, yo solía usar un maquillaje muy simple, en general solo para sentirme mas segura de mi misma y ocultar impurezas. Ahora de verdad lo disfruto, y me siento súper creativa probando nuevos tonos, dependiendo de mi humor y looks del día, logrando que todo combine.

On this post, I would be sharing my make up routine for the summer (it does not really change that much with the seasons) but I would be sharing some tips to make your make up last longer in hot days ☀️

En este post explicaré mi rutina de maquillaje en el verano (la verdad no cambia mucho en otras estaciones, pero compartiré unos trucos para que el maquillaje te dure más en un clima caluroso)

On a daily basis I wear very basic make up and sometimes none at all. I believe that especially on summer ‘less is more’ and that applies to make up too.

En un día normal, uso un maquillaje muy simple y durante el verano me gusta mantenerlo así.

Before my make up routine I apply some moisturizer (BTW this is a must, no matter the season or where do you live) just make sure that it includes some sun protection as well (You can check my previous post for my cleansing routine ). Also, for warm weather I like applying a primer (Estee Lauder – perfecting primer) before the foundation because, besides helping you to achieve a flawless complexion, it is also ideal to preserve the make up and keep it in place.

Yo empiezo mi rutina de maquillaje aplicando una crema humectante con protección solar, (puedes chequear mi post previo para ver mi rutina de limpieza ). Después, uso una pre-base de maquillaje, ya que es excelente porque a parte de emparejar el rostro, también ayuda a preservar el maquillaje por más tiempo.

After primer, I apply some foundation (Estee Lauder Double Wear Light), make sure to blend it properly  to achieve that flawless complexion.

Después de la pre-base, aplico una base. Asegúrate de mezclar bien la base en tu rostro para alcanzar esa impresión de un cutis perfecto. 

Afterwards, some concealer (Revlon- Photoready 003) to cover blemishes and dark circles around the eyes. Then, I use and eyebrow pencil to shape and fill my eyebrows. I use Spike from MAC. I like eyebrow pencils because they are very simple to use and I like how natural they look at the end.

Luego un poco de corrector para ocultar círculos negros o imperfecciones. Siguiente, delineo mis cejas con un lápiz de ceja, yo prefiero usar lápiz en lugar de gel o sombra de pestañas, la verdad se me hace mucho mas fácil con el lápiz y me encanta que se vea tan natural.

Especially on summer or if you just happen to live in any tropical or warm place (lucky you!) I recommend using some Pressed Powder  (Estee Lauder- Double Matte) to fix the make up and control the oil.

Especialmente en verano (o en cualquier clima cálido) recomiendo usar un polvo traslucido que ayuda a fijar un poco más el maquillaje y a darle un terminado mas mate.

Later, I rather use some blush (Estee Lauder- Brazen Bronze 09) with no contouring, as I think it would look too much (at least during the day). However, you can see the bronzer I use in the pictures below (Bronze Goddess 02 Medium)

Últimamente, utilizo un rubor sin y el color lo escojo dependiendo de los colores que vaya a usar ese día o del lápiz labial que vaya a usar. A demás, también me gusta usar un poco de contorno en el verano, pero lo reservo para la noche.

Finally, I would apply some mascara and my absolute favourite is ‘They’re real’ from Benefit. (I also like ‘Colossal’ from Maybelline) I finished the look with the lip pencil Tiramisu 050 from Rimmel and filled up with Velvet Teddy from MAC. If you want a pinker finish you could also use subculture lip pencil from MAC and make sure to blend it altogether.

Posteriormente, para un look de día, solo aplico varias capas de mascara de pestañas. Mi favorita es ‘They’re Real de Benefit y tambien me encanta ‘Colossal’ de Maybelline. Para terminar el look, escogí el labial Velvet Teddy de MAC y el lápiz labial 050 Tiramisu de Rimmel para delinear mejor los labios.
