Okay so I have this feeling that because we endured a super long and freezing cold winter, Montana is gonna reward us with one hot beautiful summer! That means long summer days, trips up to Flathead and countless floats down the Clark Fork.

Now if you're like me, you don't want to pack on the makeup during the summer (or ever, really) because you'll probably just sweat it off anyway. But I always like to have a little something on my face to smooth out my complexion and give me that healthy looking glow!

Back in high school, I made the switch to using Bare Minerals for mainly just my foundation and occasional pimple coverage. Talk about a game changer! Now 8 years later I use Bare Minerals for pretty much everything! They now have so many skin tone options in both powder and liquid forms and they leave your skin with that gorgeous healthy glow that everyone wants!

I'm also a huge fan of their eyeshadows! (I mainly use the one called 'Nude Beach') The colors you have to choose from are awesome and you can go as natural or as fun as you want! I can't even tell you how many times I've been stopped by people I don't even know and had them compliment me on my makeup!

My girl Ellie from Smooch Cosmetic Boutique, which is right there in downtown Missoula, just hooked me up with the perfect Bare Minerals summer eye and lip kit. The colors are bright and fun but don't stray too far away from my more natural look! (See photo below) Plus Smooch is about to get in their summer makeup shipment which will include a larger variety of skin tone options for the new lighter Bare Minerals liquid foundation that contains a higher SPF than most cakey foundations!!! So basically, your skin will be able to breathe this summer while maintaining that flawless complexion and providing some sun protection!

So if you're looking to try something new and feel amazing in your own skin, head on down to see my girl Ellie at Smooch Cosmetic Boutique. She'll match your skin tone to the perfect foundation and you can stock up on all your favorite summer beauty essentials!

Happy shopping!!!
