I am so honored to be partnering with Walmart for their Here For Every Beauty campaign to create my go-to every day 5 Minute Summer Beauty Look! As a mom, time is always of the essence so when it comes to a daily beauty routine, keeping it short and sweet is an absolute must. With that said, even though I’m a mom on a tight timeline now, I still love a little glam! Summer days and a handful of affordable summer must-haves from Walmart’s Here For Every Beauty collection allow for the quickest beauty routine I’ve ever had.
During the summer heat, I want my skin to be protected but breathable, my makeup to be glowing and fresh and my hair to be beachy and low maintenance. Here’s how I achieve all of the above with just over $100 of products from Walmart!
When I’m fresh out of the shower, my morning skin regimen is immediately followed with a healthy application of Olay Sun Face Sunscreen + Shine Control SPF 35. Sun protection is one of the most important steps to prevent early signs of aging and sun damage so this is a crucial product every single day. The shine control in this formula allows me to skip face makeup powders that can feel cake-y and cause me to break out once I’ve broken a sweat throughout the day!
Once the skin on my face is prepped for the day, I like to prep the skin on the rest of my body with Jergen’s Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer. I’ve been using this stuff since high school! I love that it moisturizes my skin whilst giving me a gradual, healthy glow that never looks orange or uneven like a lot of instant self-tanners tend to do!
When it comes to makeup application for summer, I like to keep it super light and often skip face makeup altogether. For my everyday look, I mainly rely on a great palette like this Stila Perfect Me Perfect Hue Eye & Cheek Palette to cover all of my bases. This palette provides a fresh shimmering glow for those sun kissed spots on the face and a pop of color for my cheeks. For my eyes, I used the matte taupe shade for my eye base and the shimmer taupe shade for my highlights along my brown bone and inner corners. I then added a pop of the coral shimmer to the center of my lid with my fingertip and used the dark brown to add some dimension to my crease and my upper and lower lash lines.
To finish my makeup look, I just applied a little mascara and natural lippy! One of my favorite affordable mascaras is Maybelline Lash Sensational and since it’s summer, I opted for the waterproof version. I always prefer waterproof mascara in the summer to combat any smudging from perspiration. For my lips, I used Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Nude Attitude and instead of smearing it on for full coverage, I just blotted a light layer across my lips and patted it in with my finger. I learn this trick from a beauty YouTuber I love and it’s the perfect way to apply lipstick when you want a hint of color for a more natural appearance.
Now, for the hair… I like to brush my hair before I get in the shower so I don’t pull out any of the natural texture when I leave it to air dry afterwards. Once it’s about halfway dry, I first spritz in some It’s a 10 Miracle Leave-In Conditioner and follow that with some AG Hair Sea Spray. After giving it a good scrunch with my hands, I leave it to dry the rest of the way and try not to touch it too much so I can let it do its thing! It’s a super simple routine but these two products are key in giving me that healthy but perfectly messy look that I love for summer!
