Project Pan, Spring/Summer 2017: Beach Ready

Spring is when I put all my heavy makeup away and get out the neutrals, the sheers, and the bronze. It's a yearly make-under!

I just hit pan on this! What's true for High Beam is true for this: don't get crazy with it or you'll be visible from space.

Since Dallas is a cooler bronzer than most, I decided to go with a cooler neutral palette.

This stuff is nice and waterproof! I feel like this mascara is more appropriate for very glam looks, and is kind of wasted on minimalist summer looks.

I ran out of the Dr. Jart+ BB started the summer with, and this is my backup. It's very sheer and doesn't cover imperfections much at all, but adds a tiny bit of shimmer.

Pixi Makeup Fixing Mist - 2.7 fl oz

I ran out of my Urban Decay setting spray, and picked this up to try. It's not bad, and I might even like it better than All Nighter. It keeps my makeup looking hawt until I wash it off.

My NYX powder ran out and this is what's taking its place. It's not quite as translucent as I wanted it to be, but it does give good coverage for the summer. It's also pretty yellow, so cool undertones may have issues with it.

The trick here is to use just enough to look dewy, not sweaty. I don't need help looking sweaty in Florida!

As with the blue eyeshadow, I also need a red lipstick to get me through any season. Not together, of course. I'll be using Cherry.

Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm

I love these! They totally remind me of a lip product I used as a kid, something that was basically a LipSmacker with a hint of color. I'm using Sweet Violet, and I've got two, one for my vanity and one for my bag!

Every now and then I like to get the blue shadow out. I'll be using Cobalt Smoke for my blue shadow cravings this summer.

I'm using Zero for all my waterproof eyeliner needs.

I use Sin for my summer makeup needs. It adds just a bit of bronze to an already neutral eye look.

Here's my go-to bronzer, at least for the minute. I've got a big-ol' circle of pan in the center already, I'm hoping to finish it all up by the end of the summer.

I love BBs in the warmer months. I like to let my freckles show, but still cover redness and other imperfections.

I probably don't need a primer in the summer, but I still like to use one. Smashbox Photo Finish is my primer viking.
