My Top Picks for Summer Makeup

It's no secret to anyone who knows me - I love makeup. I love makeup almost as much as I love shoes. And handbags. I never - and I really do mean never - leave the house without putting on some makeup. Or "real" clothes. Don't even get me started on the people in pjs and slippers at the grocery store. Unless your kid is sick and you're picking up a prescription, you had time to get dressed. *steps off soapbox*

Of course, there are different "levels" of makeup. Gus likes for me to put on what he calls "hooker eyes". As you can probably guess, that means darker eyeshadow and a lot of liner. He would like me to wear this everyday. I only wear it when we go out at night. Crazy man.

My usual look is pretty natural. Just enough to enhance, but not really look like full-blown makeup. In the summer, I tend to go even less than that. A little tinted moisturizer or BB cream, lipgloss, a touch of blush, neutral/nude eyeshadow, and some mascara - and of course, sunscreen.

I've put together my top picks for summer makeup - you can apply all of this in about 10-15 minutes (maybe less!) - but still look "put-together" and not overly done for daytime and/or summer!
