In the spring and summer months I don’t like to spend a lot of time on my makeup, and usually trade in my powder eyeshadow palettes for a thin line of black gel liner or a quick wash of cream shadow. I also tend to lean more towards multi-purpose products that can be used on the go [and can take me from beach to dinner in a snap].
Enter Jouer Cosmetics, a brand that is king when it comes to colors and formulas that are made for easy, no-fuss application. You guys already know how much I love their Mattifying Bronzer, so today I want to mention a few products that are perfect for back of a taxi touch-ups – you won’t need a single brush or tool.
First up is the Matte Moisture Tint, a product that I can slap on with my fingertips and doesn’t require much blending in. I also find that because of its semi-matte formula, I don’t need to apply a powder overtop. I know that I will have this handy on beach days because of its long-lasting formula and SPF of 15.
What better to compliment a summer glow than a coral-pink tint? Jouer’s tint in Poppy is a beautiful sheer, warm shade that brightens up the entire face. This product is perfect for throwing in a handbag due to its compact size, and can be applied on-the-go with a fingertip to the cheeks and lips.
One of my favorite eye looks to wear during spring and summer is a bronze smokey eye. You only need one shade to blend on lids and the lower lash line to create this sort of golden goddess, Victoria’s Secret inspired look. Jouer’s Creme Eyeshadow Crayon in Baroque, a shimmering bronze, is perfect for doing just that. Unlike some shadow crayons, Jouer’s version is twist-up so you don’t need a sharpener. To apply this shade I simply draw a few lines on my lids, smudge with a fingertip and voila! A smudge-proof long-lasting smokey eye.
When it’s warm I’m all about lip tints, glosses and balms in everyday shades. Jouer’s Lip Sheer with SPF 15 in Antigua is the perfect companion for a day at the beach; it moisturizes lips, and protects them from the sun while adding a lovely peachy-pink tint. If you’re going out after a day in the sun and want to add a bit of sheen and gloss, reach for Jouer’s Tinted Lip Enhancer in Bellini, a sheer, shimmer-less peach that will keep lips smooth and hydrated for hours.
