Bare Minimum: The Heatwave Day to Night Edit

 Alima Pure Summer Day to Night Edit

With the latest Portland heat wave, we’ve been attempting to savor summer as much possible while keeping our looks fresh, natural, and comfortable. When you’ve got a full calendar at work, followed by dinner and drinks on a hot patio, opt for a look that’s minimal and centered around one bold thing—we chose our new Pressed Eyeshadow colors. Plus, all these items are easily stowed in the Eileen Bag.


Keep your coverage light and fresh with a finishing powder instead of a foundation. Satin Finishing Powder is like a lighter-coverage Satin Matte Foundation—it adds a hint of a velvety matte coverage with a super lightweight mineral formula.

If matte isn't your thing, opt for Radiant Finishing Powder to embrace your natural dew with a lightweight, well-lit luminosity. Use the Powder Brush or Soft Focus Brush to apply a light layer to your cheeks, nose and forehead. Bonus: If you’re eager for an extra boost of hydration, mix SFP or RFP with your favorite oil, serum, or moisturizer and apply it as a gentle skin tint.

Pressed Eyeshadow in Isla is a great multitasker to keep in your handbag. Swipe it along your cheekbones for a one-step highlighter with your fingertips, and blend it onto the center of your eyelids for an easy, pulled-together minimalist look that softens and brightens.

Natural Definition Brow Pencil gives structure to your whole face with a few swipes to your arches. Keep things natural at the ends of your brows, and focus the pigment in the middle. 


For your evening plans, add a bold color to your lids or lower lashline with the swipe of your finger. We love Cosmic, Luxe, Siren, and Myth for a bright or sultry sweep of pigment. These colors finish fresh and pearly, and are the perfect complement to a hot summer evening.

Sweep on a fresh coat of Natural Definition Mascara to lift, separate, and define your lashes without any smudging or clumping. Bonus: choose brown mascara to draw attention to the color of your eyes.

Finish with your favorite Lip Tint (right now, we’re all about peachy-nude Honey and terracotta red Paprika) to nourish and soothe your lips.
