Summer is about simple beauty. In fact, with the right products, I can get my makeup routine down to four steps and three products in the summer. The key is makeup that makes the most of your skin. You know I'm a fan of BB creams--those delightful multi-tasking first-layers--and I've got a new one I've been testing out from Revlon. I'm not alone in my love of the BB. Check out what my blogging cohorts had to say and join the convo about Why do you love using a BB cream?
The new product is called Revlon Photo-Ready BB Cream. A lightweight, multi-benefit Beauty Balm that combines skincare, makeup, and sunscreen into one step. I simply dab the makeup on my cheeks, nose, and forehead and blend with my fingers. Easy and you don't have to be an expert to apply. It' blends so nicely--you can achieve an polished look in seconds. In addition to everyday testing, I recently used this on a photo shoot and it lasted all day. Even when I got home I still had nice coverage for my discolored spots. I headed right to my rooftop for a party without having to touch anything up. Just added a bit more lipgloss!
Now that you know my top trick for getting simply glowing skin for summer, here are my last two essentials. An eyelash curler to lift my lashes and make my eyes appear larger (they tend to be on the small side) and a few coats of dark brown mascara. Final step: A swipe of yummy lip gloss. This week I've been wearing the Revlon Super Lustrous gloss in "Rosy Future" (TIP: Apply over your favorite Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick for a longer-lasting pop of color). I like the way this gloss gives a bit of shimmer and shine--perfect for a daytime look that will get you noticed without appearing overdone.
Revlon believes there is more than one way for women to be seen. Revlon's heritage as a color authority and its suite of innovative products inspires women around the world to express themselves through beauty each and every day.
