15-Minute Summer Glam

Summer’s here and in full swing Fashionistas. When it comes to putting my makeup on in the summertime, I really try to use as little as possible, in as little time as possible. I’ve gotten my summer makeup routine down to 15 minutes, and here’s how.

1—Base. I start out with my Milk Makeup Flex concealer, applying under my eyes, and on all of my problem areas. After I blend my concealer with a damp beauty blender, I then will take my Urban Decay Naked Skin Ultra Definition Powder Foundation and apply that everywhere that I put my concealer. This foundation is absolutely amazing, it will cover anything that you need it to!

2—Bronze and highlight. Since it is summertime and we are all nice and tan, I like to take it easy with the bronzer. I use the Hoola bronzer by Benefit. Then I go in with my Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit to add some glow to the look!

3—Eyes and brows. For my eyes I’ve been using my Tartelette palette, it has all mate shadows and I usually try to keep it pretty simple with my eyeshadow. Finishing my eyes with the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara. Finally, to complete this look, I go in with my Urban Decay Brow Box to fill in my brows a little and hold them in place with the Urban Decay Brow Tamer.

5 Must-Haves For Your Next Summer Adventure

Going on a fun, adventurous vacation this summer? A fun day exploring with your friends? You’re going to need some things to help you stay as comfortable as possible along the way.

These five must-haves will help make sure that your next summer adventures are perfect:

1—Water bottle.

Having a reusable water bottle that keeps your drinks ice cold for over 24 hours is perfect for hot summer days. For me I love to use my S’well bottle, I bring it with me everywhere, it’s perfect for when you’re spending the day in the sun!


You never know when you’re going to need to change out of those flip flops into some sneakers when going on adventures. I always try to keep a pair with me when I’m going out on a nice hot day.


You’re definitely going to want to take some pics of what you see on your adventures. Whether you are going to use the camera on your phone or your own camera, always carry one with you to make sure you capture the memories you’re making this summer!


Always bring your sunglasses with you during the summer, even when it looks like it’s cloudy and raining outside, you never know when the clouds will clear and the sun will come out.  My sunglasses are always either in my bag or on my head 24/7.


You’re going to need something to carry all of your stuff in on these adventures this summer, I always like to bring a bag with me that’s big enough to carry the essentials. Whether you like to use a large tote bag or a funky backpack, either will complete your look as well as carry whatever you need!

Your Go-To Summer Styles

Finally! The warmer days have started, and summer is approaching. The time to transition your closet to your summer styles is now. But, do you have the go-to staples that every girl should have for the summer? If you’re anything like me, your closet is filled with swing dresses, rompers and jumpsuits—to keep your outfits easy, yet fashionable.

For me, summer styles have to be comfortable, easy to throw together, and wearable for all different types of occasions. Summer is the time for a girls’ night out, going on romantic dates, and hanging out by the pool or the beach. For most of these things you can mix and match any of your go-to summer staples for the perfect outfit.

Girls’ night out


For me, a jumpsuit or a skirt with a cropped tank top are the best outfits for a night out with the girls. Just throw on a cute sandal or wedge with a few accessories and your ready for anything!

Date night

My go-to date night outfits are usually jumpsuits or swing dresses, just like this Fashionista is wearing.  These are my absolute favorite things to wear all summer, they are so easy to just put on with a cute heel and some jewelry. I always like to bring a denim jacket or an open cardigan with me, in case it gets a little cooler at night!

Beach/pool day

Whether I’m just hanging out by the pool or if I’m going to the beach for the day I always like to have something to throw on over my bathing suit. I usually just grab one of my thousands of swing dresses, or a pair of denim shorts and a tank top. Throw on a pair of sandals and sunglasses, grab your tote bag and your ready for some sun!
