Okay, you gals are going to have to bear with me as I get the hang of this makeup thing. I’m not an amateur or anything. I mean, I got the basics down pact. But, I’m nowhere near being a professional makeup artist. If I don’t walk outside looking like a ghost and my concealer is completed blended – I’m doing a GREAT job!
Even though I’m no beauty expert, I wanted to start showing some everyday looks and date night makeup looks for you guys. If no one else appreciates this, I’m sure the moms on the go could benefit from my makeup posts. So, here I go!

Simple Summer Natural Makeup For Dark Skin Tones
I LOVE simple summer natural makeup because the summer is always way too hot to be putting on a full face with a bunch of colors. Especially, if it’s going to be a hot and humid day. Last year in Texas, temperatures were rising all the way to over 100 degrees. The last thing you want is for your face to be melting off while you’re hanging out with the family or spending the day with girls.

Less Is More!
During the summer, I definitely prefer a more natural looking makeup routine. I usually switch up my lip colors when changing from day to night to add that bit of color pop to my look.
A Great Mascara Is Your Friend!
If you haven’t realized, you NEED a good mascara. No seriously! You ever put mascara on with no other makeup and realized how much it makes your eyes pop? It will make a world of difference! Since I dialed back my makeup a bit for summer, I’ve been using my Smashbox Mascara like nobody’s business. Definitely, recommend this mascara for those who are like me and haven’t mastered putting on lashes.
Make Sure To Use Your Setting Spray!
Let that makeup set before you leave the house girl! If you’re unfamiliar with setting spray, it’s what brings your makeup look together and ensure you don’t look caked on. Picture the top coat on your manicure. You can choose a pretty color but without that top coat, doesn’t it look a bit bland? Don’t look casket ready in the summer. You’ll be dripping that makeup in no time! My favorite right now is the NYX setting spray. It’s only $8 which is perfect for my budget. I choose the Dewy setting spray as it makes you look more like you have a glow. Glow in the summer? Definitely a MUST!
