Summer Skincare Routine for Oily Skin

I always say that skincare is the most important step to a makeup routine. After all, how can you expect to do great work if you neglect your canvas?

During the summer, I’m guilty of becoming a little lazy, but it’s important to never neglect your personal and physical health. During the summer I try to keep my skincare routine basic and light because, well, it’s summer. Nobody has time for all of that extra stuff. Or maybe I’m just lazier than I thought…

That being said, here’s the final look! Details about the eyeshadow colors and other products are below.
