Summer Shimmer

If you are in any of the states I’ve been in these past summer months – Texas and Arizona – chances are that you already have achieved that “dewy look” as soon as you stepped outside in the 100 plus degree weather.

I don’t usually change up my makeup routine just because the weather climbs in the triple digits.  I still wear foundation, eye shadow, etc. – the “full face.”  However, I do like to incorporate some additional items for that summer shimmer, minus the heat and sweat.

I first saw Sepi use NYX Away We Glow in a video and knew that I had to try it. At Ulta, I also acquired a few other items that easily complete that glow I desired.  Please note that I have very fair skin, and the Away We Glow does come in different shades.  This one worked best for me, as well as with the palettes and contouring stick I snagged.  To finish the look, I used NYX Dewy Finish  , which turned out to be a free gift with purchase.  Can’t beat that!

Wonder Stick by NYX – this conceals, highlights and contours!

Dewy Finish setting spray by NYX

Peony Lip Shimmer by Burt’s Bees – I have several lip shimmers by Burt’s Bees.  They add the perfect amount of color and shimmer!

Now for some shameless selfies showcasing this morning’s summer ready look. I took two from different angles in indoor lighting, and one in natural lighting to show the difference.
