FOTD: Summer Simplicity

14 May

Now that I have a better camera, I can start taking some blog-worthy FOTD photos! I guess I should thank my boyfriend for breaking my old Canon :)

This is a very simple look that I throw on in the summer. I use minimal products because I’m usually trying to scoot out the door. I have combination skin, so all of the products I’m using cater to my oily T-zone. I do have problem skin (acne and hyper-pigmentation) so even though this look is quick and simple, I still get great coverage.


  • Pur-lisse Pur-Protect SPF 30 Moisturizer
  • Urban Decay De-Slick Spray
  • LaROCCA C-Gold Reparative Primer
  • Dr. Jart Silver Label BB Cream
  • It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Peaceful
  • Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder


  • Dior Diorshow Extase Mascara
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Liner in Gunmetal (on waterline)


  • Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil

This is my second day  hair, so I sprayed the top of my head with Tresemme Dry Shampoo to absorb any excess oil. I put my long bangs into a front side braid, secured it with a clear elastic, and tucked it behind my ear. This has been my go-to 2nd day hairstyle for the past few months. It’s really cute and only takes a minute.

And that’s my very simple FOTD!

    Love this look! Natural looks are my fave, especially for summer. I’ve always found it so weird and icky to wear a full, heavy face of makeup in the summer.

      I know right? Especially in warm climates, heavy makeup just melts right off.

    Simple and pretty! A natural make up look never fails to flatter. Either day or night out.
