Face: L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation in Shell Beige | NYX Born to Glow Liquid Illuminator in Sun Beam | Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Contour in Curvy Contour

Lips: Clinique Chubby Stick in Woppin' Watermelon

Now that it's 90 degrees out this post feels much more relevant. Days like today always make me want to put on the least amount of things as possible: including clothes, hair/body products, and makeup. This is a look I've been reaching for lately - sometimes unintentionally. Each product seems to do its job while keeping things entirely fresh and minimal on the face.

I've raved about the L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte foundation in my April Favorites post but I can't stop grabbing it from my makeup bag. The consistency is perfect for these muggy days and keeps a fresh glow throughout the day. I also snagged the Clinique Chubby Stick in Woppin' Watermelon (I blame this on Faith + Sarah's love of it) and have been applying it daily. Clinique has been #1 on my list lately, and for good reasons. My eye is immediately drawn to their counter which is bright and fresh. All of the products are also nourishing and light-weight in consistency. This pop of juicy pink is no exception and is great for the Summer months.

On another note, I have been on a major makeup kick lately so you'll probably be seeing more of these posts in the upcoming months. Although fashion will still play a major role in the blog, makeup has become something that's so fun and relaxing for me. One of the best parts of my day is when I sit down in the morning with Ben Rector radio on and apply my makeup. It's super calming and a great way to start my day.

It doesn't help that they're opening a Sephora in my neighborhood this weekend. I don't have nearly enough willpower to not pop in there after a hard work day.

Let me know if there's any specific looks/things you want to see! I'm also getting my semi-annual haircut today so fingers crossed that it looks good.
