Every morning, I spray Bain de Terre Purité Healthy Leave-In Elixir*** onto my bedhead and let that sink in while I wash my face with the old standard, Clinique Facial soap. That's quickly followed by the Clinique Moisturizing Gel, Clinique Super City Block, and eye cream (currently: Origins A Perfect World). Then I comb out my hair, get dressed, and open up the train case.
Because it's summer and I don't want anything really heavy on my face, I've been sticking to a really simple combination. I spray my face with MAC Fix+, apply Marcelle BB Cream** with my fingers, and then gently dab Smashbox's HD concealer (Light) under my eyes. I finish with a light layer of MAC MSFN in Medium.
Next, it's brows. I brush them into shape, fill them in lightly with Sleek from theBalm Nude'tude palette, and then set them with MAC Brow Set in Clear. Then I work on eyes; NARS Smudge Proof Eye Shadow Base is the best primer I've used so far, and works with any shadow. I've kind of been all over the place with shadows lately, but here I'm using mattes from my Stila Natural Beauty palette. I line with Benefit Magic Ink, and sometimes blend out the line with Urban Decay Bourbon.
There we go! That's the summer face. What products are part of your summer routine? Is it much different than your winter/spring version?
