My face is always different shades of tan in the summer, so I always struggle to find a perfectly matching makeup shade. Enter in Jouer's Luminizing Tinted Moisturizer. It's everything you need in a hot weather product: it's lightweight and breathable, contains SPF 20, is oil free, and best of all, sheer enough to match whatever shade of tan you're working with that day. It provides that easy, carefree look we're all trying to achieve in the summer: you know the one, I woke up like this ;) It can be a bit dewy but we'll solve that problem in a second.
I apply with my beauty blender - which is truly worth the money, if you ask me - but you can just as easily use your fingers.
Next up, concealer. I prefer to apply it after my foundation because I find that you actually "need" less of it. I love this particular one for a few reasons: it's lightweight, easily blendable, doesn't settle into creases, and you can also use for contouring since it's more of a brightener than heavy concealer. It also doesn't seem to melt off in the heat, as long as you set it with powder.
And speaking of powder... don't let this stuff scare you! It's yellow, but I promise it doesn't appear yellow upon application. And yes, it really does match every single shade of skin out there! Celebs and famous makeup artists swear by Ben Nye and for good reason. It holds your makeup in place all. stinkin. day. Seriously, you won't need touch ups at all when using this. It also looks really natural and not like you have powder caked on, which is one thing I really can't stand. You can buy the smallest size for only $12 (what I have) and it lasts FOREVER. Try it!
Soon the weather will cool off (sad face), and I'll probably go back to my trusty Bare Minerals foundation, but for now, I'm really loving this combo.
