Beat the Heat

Hey Strangers!!

So sorry I've been M.I.A. from the blog. That dang music stuff and traveling is getting in the way lol. 

Tony and I have been so blessed with this run of shows we're still currently on out here in Oregon. We've met so many great people and have seen and done so many amazing things together! ...I have to be honest, I am a bit home sick (we're on Day 16 of 24) but I am feeling so grateful to see so many amazing places WITH my husband, and getting paid to do it!!

While we're on the road, my oily skin goes through so many different climates. From flying, to driving, different types of water you're cleansing your face with, to being out in the hot sun, to dry climates and everything in between... I'm always worried about getting a breakout and keeping my skin looking fresh, glowing, and healthy. 

There's only one thing I forgot to picture above, and that is I ALWAYS buy make-up removing wipes from Kroger (their brand, purple package) in Calm. These are my absolute favorite!! I have tried all kinds of other brands, but I always come back to these. They don't irritate my skin or cause breakouts, and really clean my face well. After I use one, I rinse my face off throughly with warm water and dry. (DON'T go to bed without taking your make-up off and cleaning your face! This is so important ladies!! It is not only so bad for skin to be clogged all night, but it ACTUALLY ages your skin faster. These make-up wipes are a perfect solution to your laziness!!)

Ok, back to the products... 

This Loreal Revitalift was sent to me complimentary from Influenster and I absolutely have become a fan! After my face is clean, I apply this every day and night. It leaves my skin so soft and hydrated and I have never broken out from it (I've been using it for about a month now.) And I have definitely noticed a bit of a difference with my fine lines on my face. It's just a great, affordable, product for anyone out there looking to hydrate and smooth out their skin on their face! 

Next, I follow with Elf Concealer in 'Fair' underneath my eyes to start to cover those dark circles. I love this concealer, because I can easily get into the crease of my inner eyes with the little wand top to make sure the dark circles are fully covered. I then go over the bags under my eyes and the top of my cheek bones with It Cosmetics CC+ Cream in 'Light.' Great coverage, and it has this built-in serum that works all day on your skin which I love! I then finish covering my face with Loreal Matte Foundation in '105 Natural Beige.' This foundation is a MUST HAVE for summer if you have oily skin like me! It's perfect to keep your face from getting shiny at an outside event, or just a long day where you need to have your make-up last all day. Such a great finish!!

After my concealer and foundation are all in place, I set it all with this awesome NYX HD Finishing Powder with my Elf Powder Brush. These are great, affordable options to all those pricier powder settings and this powder really works... it's my fav! 

To finish it all off, I use my new best friend this summer... Hoola Matte Bronzer by Benefit Cosmetics in 'Natural Bronze.' This cute, little bronzer is so great for so many reasons! It's small, so it can easily fit into my purse or make-up bag. It comes with this perfect little brush that fits inside the box that gives you the perfect angles to quickly brush it on your cheek bones, forehead, and even quickly contour your nose! And this natural bronze shade is the perfect bronze color for that natural summer glow. (And again, doesn't leave my oily skin looking too shiny🙌🏻) If you haven't tried this bronzer, I HIGHLY recommend it!! 

So these are my summer go-to's for my skin to beat the heat! Hope this has been helpful to some of you and has answered some questions about what make-up to apply to last to keep you looking cute while you're out this summer! 

Thank you guys as always for support of my little blog,

XO Jaime
