Summer Glow

Blue Tunic Dress

I recently had the chance to to talk with New York Magazine’s The Cut and Sephora about my favorite products to get that easy summer glow! I shared my warm weather season essentials from make-up to fashion and even my favorite summer eats and activities. When the temperature starts heating up around here, I have a “less is more” philosophy when it comes to makeup. I want to look put together, but light and glowy at the same time. I’ve found a few great products that help me achieve that, so I was excited to share them!

This Clinique Turnaround Revitalizing Moisturizer has quickly become a staple in my daytime routine because it gives a perfect base! I treat it like my primer then I  just have to add a few dabs of my concealer, sunscreen, mascara, and I’m good to go for a light, fresh look.

Head to The Cut to read the rest of the interview and also to learn my favorite beauty hack for highlighting when wearing strapless or off-the-shoulder tops!

      Thank you so much Morgan! Agreed – Sephora is the ultimate happy place! Seriously could get lost in that store forever. The High Beam highlight is great – it even has a concentrated part of the cap for an even bigger oomph of glow! Love! xx

      You’re too sweet Julia! Thank you! I’ve really been liking this Clinique moisturizer. It doesn’t irritate my super sensitive skin, and it acts like a primer – perfect before applying your makeup!
