Makeup Wars: My Favorite Go-To Summer Complexion Fixer

summer full complexion coverage makeup

Today for Makeup Wars we’re sharing our favorite summer complexion fixers. We all switch up our makeup routine once the warm weather hits (especially once it becomes hot and humid!) and not all Tinted Moisturizers, BB Creams, CC Creams, DD Creams (are we up to NN Creams yet?)…. they’re not all created equal. Like me, all of the bloggers in Makeup Wars have tried countless foundations, tinted moisturizers, you name it. And we all have our own favorites for the summer.

This summer, I’ve found myself repeatedly mixing about 4 parts Stila Stay All Day 10-in-1 HD Beauty Balm to 1 part Amazing Cosmetics Concealer (I’m light golden, in case you were wondering). The combination is more coverage than most BB Creams, but has a similar lightweight feel and blends perfectly into my skin. It stays perfect looking all day! I think I’ll probably be using this trick well after summer is over!

    I haven't used my Amazing Concealer in years, but this makes me want to pick up another one and try your method!

    Great idea to layer! I'm having a hard time finding a summer shade match for concealer. I am loving the IT cosmetics CC cream, but I just need a bit more coverage on my fading acne scars. Maybe I'll try the amazing cosmetics. I haven't tried the brand before!

    Someone just asked me for a recommendation for a full coverage concealer and I knew she wouldn't buy online so I recommended Amazing Cosmetics Concealer for her. I need to pull mine out since I haven't used it in a long time.

    I've been mixing a BRCCA liquid bronzer in with my regular fdtn, then no need to add another layer or bronzer.

    You just gave me a great idea! I have been blending BB creams together, but I never thought to mix in concealer!

    I love that Amazing Cosmetics concealer! It is one of my all-time favorites!!! Funny, I just ran out of mine and this reminds me that I need to pick up another one soon!

    With my oily, breakout prone skin, I still don't think I've found THE summer foundation look for me, which ideally would be my skin but better. It's a tie between two – Mary Kay Medium Coverage foundation which is really light. Or, Smashbox BB cream with concealer on the spots followed by a powder set. Whatever controls the oil best while not oxidizing. I'll probably figure it out when summer's over.

    Just loving the Amazing Concealer. The perfect peach corrector!

    Looove the idea of mixung the bb with a concealer! Have you tried the Tarte Maracuja concealer? I love Amazing but tend to use the Tarte over it because it doesn't contain mineral oil.

    Wow sounds like a great combo! I've been curious about Amazing cosmetics but never tried them.
