Current Easy Summer Makeup Routine

One of my favorite things about being at my parents house in North Carolina is being able to get dressed up and wear makeup while we run the essential errands. My parents live in a county with very few COVID cases and the stores are taking precautions seriously so shopping can be safe. It’s also summer and feels like 114 degrees in the South so I want an easy makeup routine without much fuss because it will melt off! Everything you see below is simple and quick to apply. I wear a little makeup to help myself look and feel put together without taking a long time to get ready. You’ll notice that there are very few products because it’s summer so no one wants to wear a lot of makeup!

Mascara Great for everyday when you want some volume and color for us blondes!

Eyeliner Super easy to apply and gives a perfect thick black liquid line that lasts all day.

Eyeshadow I brought a ton of eyeshadow palettes with me and I keep grabbing this one for a natural everyday look. I linked a similar one since mine is discontinued.

Setting Powder with SPF If my face looks a little red I like to use this setting spray because it’s a bit lighter than my current shade. Plus there is SPF!

Foundation I don’t wear foundation often but when I want to wear a bit more makeup, I’ve been using this one because it looks the most natural and doesn’t melt off my face in the heat.

A Spritz of LOVE

A while ago, I received a few rewards and a handful of coupons from Victoria’s Secret. I didn’t need anything but felt like not using my gift cards would be a waste so I went into a store to browse. I have plenty of intimates and my pajama drawer looks like it is going to explode at any minute. Since I didn’t need any new lounge wear, I wandered over to the beauty section and started spraying. It’s been years since I purchased a perfume at Victoria’s Secret. Their marketing lately has been working because I wanted to see if there was anything I could buy with my gift card. After I sprayed the perfume LOVE, I immediately fell in love (ha!). It’s hard to describe but it’s a classic scent that feels light and airy. With the fruity and cotton combination, it’s a great fragrance for everyday. I already have so many perfumes for special occasions, but I am always looking for a fresh and clean fragrance to wear everyday.

I also need to admit that I may have purchased this perfume because of how pretty the bottle was! It looks so pretty on my dresser next to my other perfumes. Now before leaving the apartment, I love to do a quick spritz on my way out. I may not look like an Angel in a bra, but I guess I can enjoy pizza while smelling like one!

Have you tried any Victoria’s Secret Beauty items lately? I remember stocking up on sprays in high school and then trading them with my friends. For as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with scents and smelling good. I’m sure I’ll be back soon so I can pick up another perfume!

Skincare Review: Peter Thomas Roth Peptide 21 Collection

This point contains affiliate links that help support Blonde Rosie.

I love trying new skincare products and I reallly love trying products that work! I’ve been using Peter Thomas Roth skincare products lately and I’m already seeing results. The new Peptide 21 collection has 21 peptides, neuropeptides and 2 gamma proteins (lots of collagen and proteins that help with anti aging!) The Peptide 21 Collection helps prevent wrinkles, keep your skin firm and moisturized and exfoliate leaving your skin looking radiant!

Peptides are chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins in the skin. Over time, our body stops producing collagen and this is what causes our skin to age. When peptides are applied to the skin, the skin working with the peptides to produce new collagen. Applying skincare products with peptides helps get rid of wrinkles naturally and daily slows down the loss of collagen in your skin.

I use the Peptide 21 Wrinkle Resist Serum on my face and neck at night because it dramatically reduces the look of fine lines and wrinkles. 

The Lift & Firm moisturizer does just that! I like to use it under my makeup because it makes my skin feel bouncy, firm with lots of hydration.

The Amino Acid Exfoliating Peel Pads reduce the look of pokes and uneven skin tone. It’s an easy way to exfoliate your skin once or twice a week and it does an amazing job at making your skin feel really smooth! 

My favorite part is that it takes just 2 minutes to apply a serum at night and put on a moisturizer in the morning. I love easy skincare that works right away and doesn’t take too much time out of my day! My skin loves every single one of these products and I know that you will to! If you take some time now to invest in your skin. I can promise that you won’t regret it ten years from now!
