Sweat Proof • Summer Makeup


When I have an event to go to outdoors in the summer the last thing that I want to worry about is my makeup sliding around my greasy face. I don’t have time for that and neither do you. I know that in this situation I need to break out the products that aren’t going to fail me.

Eyes: Priming the eyelids is key to making sure that the shadows won’t budge. My favorite primer is by Lorac that comes complimentary with my Lorac PRO and Unzipped Gold palettes. Featured for this post is the 35W palette by Morphe Brushes. I love this palette because it’s so versatile and inexpensive – and has a nice mix of shimmer, matte, and satin shades! For liner, the Maybelline Master Precise has been my go-to for quite some time. I love that it’s in pen form with a felt tip, it’s a fool-proof way to create a simple line or a dramatic cat eye. To finish off my eyes, I’ll use my holy grail mascara which is the L’oreal Voluminous Carbon Black. This mascara is buildable, separates the lashes, and has extreme volume.Base: Priming my face is key to making sure that my makeup will not budge. My favorite high-end primer is the Hourglass Mineral Veil. This primer leaves my skin so smooth and silky, it fills in all my pores and gives an airbrushed finish to the skin. For foundation, I’m going to bust out my Sephora Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation. If you haven’t heard about this little gem then you’re missing out. This has been referred to as a dupe for the Dior Airflash Spray Foundation which retails at a whopping $62. I love this foundation, because it lasts all day and gives my skin a nice satin to matte finish on it’s own. The can says:

Quick and easy professional airbrush results at home! Instablend pigment technology helps color blend seamlessly, creating a smooth, even and flawless matte satin finish. *Oil-free, 10 hour wear, waterproof, non-comedogenic, france-free, dermatologically tested, no parabens, and no mineral oil.

Once this spray foundation has set, I’ll dust a light power over top for extra oil control. I will continue with my bronzer and blush as normal and set my face with the Urban Decay DeSlick.


Lips: To be sure that my lipstick will stay, I first like to line my lips. Lately, I’ve been obsessing over the Essence Cosmetics liners, because they’re so inexpensive and pigmented! You can purchase these babies at Ulta for around $1.50 and they’re worth every penny. I do have a full review on these liners with swatches that you can read here. For lipstick, I will definitely reach for my favorite nude by Milani Cosmetics from their Moisture Matte collection in the shade Matte Naked. For my darker skin, this color is the perfect “my lips but better” shade. I’ve done a more in depth review on a few shades in the collection + swatches that can be read here. A gloss at this point is optional.

Have you tried any of the products listed? If so, what are your thoughts? What are some of your go-to products to create a long lasting makeup look?

Jaclyn Hill Favorites Palette

      
Ahhhh I have finally been able to get my hands on the absolutely breathtakingly beautiful Jaclyn Hill Favorites palette by Morphe Brushes! This has been long awaited, because I missed the first time they went up for sale on Morphe’s website and the site crashed yada-yada-yada and everyone was upset. I have been a big fan of Jaclyn Hill for quite some time and I love the looks creates on her channel! She loves to construct gorgeous warm neutral looks + warm smokey eyes. I personally, am a huge fan of warmer tones, I just think they look better on my skin tone. So when I found out JH was developing an eyeshadow palette, I knew it was one I needed in my collection.

My experience with Morphe Brushes before purchasing the JHF palette has been overall positive. I purchased their 35W – 35 color warm color palette last year for only $20! That was an amazing price for the quality of the shadows that I received and the variety of shades. I will say the 35W shadows seemed a little bit “chalky” but not terribly, but they are well pigmented. In comparing the JHF to that palette the quality of the shadows are higher and more along the lines as if you were to purchase Morphe’s single shadows.

Let’s get on with the swatches shall we?

 
Row 1 • 5 shimmer + 2 matte– pictured here are some very beautiful highlight shades, as well as gorgeous transition shades. My personal favorite for an everyday simple look is just using the second from the end, that resembles the Too Faced Semi-Sweet palette color called peanut butter

  
Row 2 • 3 shimmer + 4 matte – this row is filled with beautiful brownsorange, and a pop of coral. These colors scream fall to me, which is my favorite season!

  Row 3 • 3 shimmer + 4 matte – hello beautiful pinkschestnut browns, and deep burgundy shades. All so beautiful and highly pigmented. Actually the shade three from the top had some issues showing up. I don’t know if it’s that it resembles my skin too much, or if the formulation was off.  

  Row 4 • 5 shimmer + 2 matte – this is the wow factor row that has stunning cranberriesplums, and a pop of olive green!

 This palette retailed for $28 + I used JH’s coupon code to received 10% off. The shipping and handling was a little steep, but it came from Cali so it’s understandable! Overall, I have been absolutely obsessed with this palette and I’m extremely satisfied. Thank you Jaclyn Hill and Morphe Brushes for creating an amazing palette at a phenomenal price! All of the shades are buttery and highly pigmented, and I will be able to create an endless amount of looks!
