Summer Makeup Essentials

So I'm not a very big makeup wear-er but I do love me some basic essential items.  Keyword being basic, which to me = lazy, so I'm all for it.

With 2 kids and preggo with #3 due very soon, I can say more times than I would like I don't look my best. My hair is rarely ever done and I'm lucky if my clothes match or better yet aren't cover in food stains, but one thing I do make an attempt with is my makeup.  I figure if my face looks decent, maybe people won't notice my other imperfections?? Just let me believe that, OK?

I thought I would share my top summer make up favorites because I know you're just dying to know right??!

My list is only of 4 things which makes it that more awesome-er.  I own each of these products and use them on the daily.

*1Elta MD Tinted Sunscreen - My SIL turned me onto this. It serves as a sunscreen and moisturizer in one and the fact that it's tinted means on an extremely lazy day, this is all I need to leave my house or go outside with the kiddos.  It goes on smooth and feels nice on my skin.

*2Clinique Mascara - This stuff is it -I have gone through my fair share of mascara's and this is by far my FAVORITE! It does not go on clumpy at all and makes my lashes look long and pretty.

*3NYC Bronzer - Again, I've gone through many bronzers and this is my favorite yet, I also love the price tag, under $5 for a good bronzer!! 

*4Naked Palette - This eye shadow is probably the most expensive thing I own in my make up bag but it was worth every penny.  You can go from day to night with this little beauty and all the colors are very flattering. 

So there ya have it, my 4 items that make up my summer make up essentials.  Have you used any of these before? Are there other brands that are your favorite? Let me know if I'm missing out on something!
