Weekend Travel Essentials | bluemercury

I am very no-nonsense about my beauty routine during the summer. I spend a lot of time running and playing tennis outside, and Barry and I also walk 4 miles every day when we're at the beach. I generally like a clean natural face on the weekends, and the only time I step up my look is for parties at our beach community.    


Weekend Morning Face 


Hydration, SPF, a touch of mascara, and I'm out the door! 
1.  M-61 Hydraboost Serum.  For extra moisture under sunscreen - the tamarind and aloe are incredibly soothing and the B5 is a superhero hydrator.  


2.  SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50. The hint of color evens out my skin tone while the 6% titanium dioxide and 5% zinc oxide is a phenomenal block.  


3.  Trish McEvoy High Volume Mascara in Jet Black.  I hate leaving the house without mascara. This Japanese formula tubes around your lashes and lasts all day.  


Weekend Evening Look


I am all about perfect skin, bronzer, dusk colored eyeshadows and the perfect lip gloss during summer evenings!


1.  M-61 Vitablast C Serum. Perfect treatment post-sun to help with sun spots and skin elasticity. I pop this on post-shower and pre-primer.  


2.  Lune+Aster RealGlow Primer. The perfect primer that is hydrating with a hint of glimmer.  Packed with vitamin E, licorice and apple extract, and it's vegan!  


3.  Lune+Aster CC Cream SPF 50 in Medium. I made this CC cream for me, so I definitely love it. I love the hydration, coverage and luminosity.   


4.  Trish McEvoy Sun and Sand Collection Planner. I'm loving the eyeshadow quad, especially the cream color for all over the lid, the topaz as a crease color, and the blackberry granite as an eyeliner.   Use the shadows over the eye base in bare for extra hold.  


5.  Bronzers.  I have so many I love: Nars Bronzing Powder in Laguna, Lune+Aster Moonrise Glow & Contour Bronzing Palette, Trish McEvoy Bronzer Golden Glamour (also in the new planner), Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette, Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Medium. Anything for the sun-kissed look! (Sometimes I use during the day, too over my sunscreen!)


6. Lip Glosses. My go-to lip gloss is a summery nude or pink: I love Trish McEvoy Beauty Booster SPF 15 Lip Gloss in Sexy Nude or Lune+Aster Vitamin C+E Lip Gloss in Entrepreneur.  


My Summer Splurge: The new Revive Soleil Superieur Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen. Easy hydration plus SPF 50 - great for under daytime makeup or a quick trip to the farmers market on Saturday. It is a chemical block so I don't feel like it is strong enough for the beach, but it's perfect for less intense sun. I LOVE the texture and easy application.
