Summer is the season for sweat. Makeup + sweat = BAD.

That being said, looking for makeup that is wearable, light weight and good quality can be difficult. However, I have compiled a list of super wearable cosmetics for those summer days where you want to look glammed up but also be comfortable!

Face Creams

This cream is airy and offers sheer coverage. Not only that but it also is infused with SPF 30 which is super important when you’re out and about in the sun. The tinted cream gives off a cooling sensation and feels like you aren’t wearing anything! With over 12 shades to choose from, you are sure to find the right shade for you.

Brows

Thick, natural brows are all the rave right now and we aren’t complaining! If you have sparse eyebrows like me filling them in to mimic full brows takes a lot of effort and time. Here are some tools to make the process easier!
