Simple Summer Makeup

Thanks for sharing!

Happy Friday my friends! I hope you've had a wonderful week and kicking off summer in style.

Nothing special planned here this summer. Just a few trips back and forth to our Caswell Beach, NC family beach cottage. I can't wait to head there soon.

I wanted to share with you today my Simple Summer Makeup routine or for when I actually wear makeup! LOL!

I really don't wear much makeup if I'm just at home.

When it's hot, no one really wants to wear a lot of makeup.

I can tell such a difference in my skin since using LimeLife by Alcone natural skin care for the last year. 

I DID NOT edit any of the photos of me. I just added my watermark.

I love how compact these makeup products are for everyday use and travel!! Best makeup I've ever used. Perfect for that simple Summer Makeup! #makeup #over40makeup #travelmakeup #christyLittlestyle

Before my simple summer makeup look with minimal products! #makeup #over40makeup

Here is my before at 49 years old. I am not someone that feels confident with zero makeup on, but I am happy with the tone, firmness and changes in my skin. I have redness and dark circles…..so I need a bit of help.

It's summer! I get hot and sweat. I really don't want to wear much makeup so I gave something a try without using foundation. Don't get me wrong, our foundation is absolutely amazing. It covers like nothing that I've ever used before, but feels like I have nothing on my skin. It looks like skin. 

You need this product if you are wanting to get the dewy look for summer! #makeup #over40makeup #limelife #dewdate

Dew Date used to be called Must Dew. Due to our international expansion, LimeLife changed the name of the product. This stuff is amazing! It's a facial oil that is light as a feather. Many men love it as a beard oil to keep it moisturized. I've also applied a little to the ends of my hair. One bottle lasted me almost a year!!!

A little goes a long way. It's best to use a drop and add more if you need it. I apply it on my entire face except my eye lids and lips. I really apply under my eyes. Being 49, I need that extra moisture before applying concealer. 

Waterproof concealers are perfect for summer! This one can be used as a foundation as well. #makeup #over40makeup #concealer #waterproofconcealer

Immediately after applying Dew Date, I started to apply my concealer. I'm going to share a quick Facebook video showing me applying this look. I did not use the concealer on my entire face, but you could! I used it where I felt like I needed a little help…..under my eyes, around my nose, cheeks and a spot on my chin. The Dew Date really helps to blend it well and give you that dewy look. The concealer is a denser consistency that the foundation. Click the link below to view the video. I wasn't able to embed it here directly. Sorry about that!

This is all that I used for this look with the exception of the eye liner! You'll see it in another shot. I just love how compact LimeLife products are. The palettes are magnetic so that means that when you run out of one color, you just replace it. You don't have to replace the entire palette! which saves so much money!

This is seriously my go-to look with the exception of changing lip colors. If red is not your thing, then I love to line my full lip with Festive Pink Liner and top with Knot Telling Lipstick. Such a pretty combo!

I NEVER wear red, but thought I'd try it above. You'll notice in the video that I first applied Knot Telling. I then applied Red Haute on top and blended for a look that I know I'll be wearing a lot!

I'll definitely be wearing foundation to church, work meetings and nights out. For that I use this palette combo with one foundation and 2 concealers. It lasts me close to 8 months! 

You can take this foundation quiz to determine your foundation color. let me know what color you get. I'll help you determine if that's the right pick as well as the perfect concealer colors to compliment the foundation.

Same exact makeup used above except I'm wearing the Festive Pink Liner with the Knot Telling Lipstick on top.

Do you notice the dewy look without looking shiny? I get no sun on my face, but I can fake a tan with my bronzer.

I do not have a heavy eye liner look. I am able to draw a fine line with our liner pen which just helps to open my eyes!

Here is a video of me just talking about this look!

Great thing about LimeLife by Alcone is that you can purchase individually or create a palette with the colors YOU want! There is a 30 day money back guarantee.

  1. I use Rodan+Fields skincare products and am so happy with my skin I use a light Peptide Powder and no concealer or foundation. I only use eyeliner and mascara. Love my low maintenance look now and I am 60! Never dreamed I would be this happy with my skin at this age.!! I might look into the lipsticks I’ve Kinda become addicted to lipstick ????.

  2. I am so glad you love them and happy to have you here! Be sure to try Sotoks with your One Drop Wonder! Happy summer!! XO

  3. Christy,
    I too use the limelight product by Alcone. A sorority sister from college who lives in NC turned me on to them about a year ago. I live in Florida so it’s nice that they are “light” but still provide adequate coverage. I’m now trying the skincare products and love the “one drop wonder” but can’t wait to try the dew date! I love the pigment and the makeup last a long time!! Love reading your blog.

I love hearing from you!
