Here is part II of my monthly favorites (sorry I skipped last month!!). This time, I will be introducing my summer makeup essentials that I have been using religiously since the humidity hit Japan.
I used to suffer from acne, so I was always in need of a foundation that would cover my blemishes and acne scars – that’s where Napolean Perdis’ cream foundation stick comes to the rescue. This is the best foundation for daily wear. It’s really creamy, which makes it very easy to apply with just fingertips. I use small circular or tapping motions to apply on my problem areas (I don’t apply it all over my face). Amazing stuff. Another miracle product I picked up at Ulta.5. Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder
Setting your face makeup is so important – I used to never do this, but now it is so necessary. A makeup artist at Sephora recommended Tarte’s translucent powder, which is great for oily skin. It gives my skin a non-cakey, matte finish. If your skin does get a bit oily later in the day, just use a tissue to blot excess oil, not blotting paper (I hear it makes oil resurface, and that cannot be good). I use a poofy powder puff to apply this powder all over my face.
Did this help at all? Any suggestions for summer skincare/ makeup? Let me know in the comments!
