I am all about paring down my makeup for summer. I believe that as we age, less foundation looks better. And in the summer months, I especially like the less is more approach. Here is my routine.
After cleansing and moisturizing, I apply a primer. I am absolutely in LOVE with this one by Tatcha. You can order it by clicking on the link, or head over to your local Sephora and try it in person. It is luxuriously applied and creates beautiful silk canvas. I sometimes wear it alone over my SPF moisturizer, and find that my skin looks radiant.
In the summer, I like to have a little glow to my skin. I am an enormous fan of this bronzing gel by Sisley. I mix it with my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer, (complete with SPF) and it glides on over the Tatcha primer perfectly evenly and stays put all day. I love the fact that is sheer, and the little boost of color that it gives my face makes me glow from the inside out!
