Summer Makeup Tutorial (Day Time Look)

Hello lovelies! So maybe I'm ahead of myself but I decided to film a Summer Makeup Day Time Look. I love summer and have been thinking of different makeup ideas to do. If you guys would like to see a Summer Night Time Makeup Look then please comment down below or thumbs this video up! 
But today I will show you my very easy, simple day time look that literally takes 10 minutes to achieve. 
Since it is so hot here in South Florida I wanted to give this makeup option since it's more of a "barely there" look. I decided to go with my BB Cream from L'oreal so I didn't have a thick layer of foundation during the day which would probably melt off from the heat of the sun. 
I used as little makeup as possible because sweating will make your makeup disappear. (To avoid this add a translucent powder once you're done and don't forget a setting spray. I use the Urban Decay de-slick setting spray.) 
Don't forget to prime your lids with a good primer (either from MAC or L'oreal) so your eyeshadow stays on all day long! To keep a fresh face I used a lot of mascara to give my lashes volume and length. If you like wearing fake lashes then you can definitely add them as well. (I apologize for not adding them in the video but for some reason I was having a very difficult time putting them on). 
To finish off with a sun-kissed looked I added one of my favorite bronzers, Casino by Nars, and I also added some blush, Fleur Power by MAC, to the apples of my cheeks. 
To illuminate my face I used Mary-Lou-Minizer by the balm on my cheek bones and brow bones. The light reflects off of this so beautifully! It has to be one of my favorite highlighters so far. 
Summer time for me is all about color so I went with this shiny iridescent purple with tiny specs of shimmer. It is a pro shade so I bought it online (it's also an amplified finish so it has a shine to it). 

This is my favorite makeup look because it is simple yet pretty for a day out with friends, shopping, or coming from the beach. You don't need much to achieve it which are my favorite kinds of looks. Hope you guys enjoyed the tutorial! Let me know in the comments below.
