Summer Makeup Must-Haves

CortneyApril 29, 2020

Nothing says summer in the south quite like sweating profusely in the scorching heat as soon as you walk out of the door #AmIRight? While I am beyond ready for a new season of fun and adventure, I know that the heat continually gets in the way of a flawless face and can make us look like a hot mess in a matter of minutes if the right products are not used. Today I’m sharing my must haves for summer makeup and surviving the heat!

Summer makeup is all about creating a easy and effortless look while finding the right products that are quick to apply, water resistant and/or waterproof. I tend to go warmer with colors to get that glowing bronzed look everyone is after, regardless of how much down time I’ve actually spent in the sun #busymomlife.

Below are my must haves for those warmer months I am so desperately craving!


1. TOUCH pressed powder foundation– Many ask if I prefer powder, liquid or cream foundation and the answer is, it depends! For summer, this full coverage foundation cuts down on shine and helps keep things in place which is a big perk for me when weighing my options.

2. TOUCH stick foundation– This stick foundation is super quick to apply when I am on the go. I literally draw it on my face then blend away. Tip: I like to order a shade darker for summer to use when contouring. 

3. TOUCH BEHOLD setting spray– This formula boosts makeup’s staying power even extreme conditions. Don’t leave the house without setting your face!

4. MOODSTRUCK pressed blusher– These shimmer blushers are formulated to blur imperfections and add the perfect after sun glow with the Peach Shimmer color.

5. TOUCH GLORIOUS face primer– Formulated with Vitamin E to provide anti-aging benefits, this primer is the perfect base for your face especially when your skin is being more exposed to those harmful rays.

6. MOODSTRUCK EPIC 4D one-step fiber mascara– The perfect mascara for dramatic length, volume and definition, this is my go-to year round. We also have a waterproof option you can read more about HERE.

7. MOODSTRUCK liquid shadow–  Super easy to use with the built in applicator which makes it go on so smooth. It can be layered with other eyeshadows or used on its own! The liquid formula holds it own against the heat. Shown in Champagne Satin.

8. MOODSTRUCK PRECISION pencil eyeliner– This water-resistant and smudge-proof formula lets you rest easy knowing your eyeliner can stand up to your day.

    Hi Courtney.
    If I already have Tulle and Lace stick foundation but want one a little darker for summer time and then one darker than that for contouring, what would you recommend ?

      Hey Shannon! I am typically either Tulle or Lace also, but when I’m tanned during the summer I like to use the shade Eyelet for foundation and Chenille to contour!

    Hi! I watch your videos and follow you. You are so great! You mention that you can color match. I specifically am looking to change my make up but do not know what color foundation and concealer etc. You messaged me a link which allowed me to take a pic and upload then I got make up suggestions back. Is that the process of you color matching me?
