- Kanebo Sensai Prime Solution
- Kanebo Sensai Cellular Performance Wrinkle Repair Cream (one for face, one for eyes) **I’ve been experimenting with samples of this KS skincare and am loving the effect thus far. That being said, the products are extremely pricey and I will be finishing my generous samples over the next week or two before weighing in on whether or not I will actually be purchasing them!
- Le Metier de Beaute Peau Vierge #2
- Kanebo Sensai Cellular Performance Cream Foundation in Natural Beige buffed on with a damp Beauty Blender
- Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate in Intensity #01 to contour
- Chanel Creme Blush in Inspiration on apples of cheeks

- Dior Show Black Art Pen on upper lids to create a cat eye

Bottom Line: Warm summer days call for a low maintenance makeup routine that highlights features without looking overdone. In turn, I have been finding myself reaching for the same products over and over again these past few weeks…a skincare foundation that withstands the heat, a semi-matte creamy blush, black and taupe eye products and pinky nude lip color. These options truly work with all skin tones and types!
