Summer Makeup Favorites

by | Aug 2, 2017 | Uncategorized

Makeup is an essential part for most women’s day-to-day life. Some use it more than others, but most have a few products they use everyday. Continuously, tried-and-true brands come up with new products, as well there are new brands popping up.

We suffer from makeup anxiety too! Why switch out, when you know what you have?We all have that same makeup we have used for years and years, but are those products you’re using the best? From mascara to foundation, to primer and setting spray, it can be so overwhelming.

There are so many brands to choose from, but which one is the right one for you?

A lot of that depends on your skin type and what you desire. However, Downtown Magazine put together our favorite makeup products this summer whether we’re talking primer, contouring or blush, and these are our picks.
