I keep it very light during summer. Tinted moisturizer w/SPF, gloss & a touch of mascara. Sometimes to make it even lighter & faster, I skip on my beloved mascara.

I don't wear much makeup during the summer. It's just too hot down here in the South.

Ironically, I haven't been wearing less makeup this summer. In fact, I've been experimenting with a lot of colors!

@Bailey - I need to skip on something!!

@Sherita - Maybe next week I'll cut back on my makeup but lately I've been wearing more than usual! LOL
