In today’s post, I’m going to be sharing a makeup and hair tutorial for those summer days at the office using a few of my favorite tools from EcoTools.

During the warmer months, I like to pull back my hair and wear lightweight makeup to the office.
For my beauty routine, I start with Joise Maran daily moisturizer with SPF 47 (not pictured) and then I apply Vita Liverata face tanning moisturizer. Throughout the year, I always apply moisturizer SPF to my face, so my face is typically 2-3 shades lighter than my body in the summer. This gives you a sun-kissed look with the sun

After moisturizing, I apply powder foundation with the EcoTools Angled Kabuki brush ($9.99). I like the larger brush because it’s not isolating my powder foundation to one area. Instead, it allows for even application across my face.
If you’re on the hunt for a larger makeup brush for powder and bronzer, I’d highly recommend the Kabuki brush. EcoTools brushes have the softest bristles out of all the makeup brushes own. I’ve owned a few brushes that have medium to harder bristles and they irritated my skin, it’s great to have these brushes for a lightweight application. I own two Kabuki brushes; one for power application and one for bronzer application.

Then I apply a coral color blush with the EcoTools Tapered Blush Brush ($6.99). The shape of the brush allows for me to apply directly to my cheekbones to brighten up my face in the morning.
Next, I apply eyeliner, mascara and lipstick to complete the look.

Moving on to my hair, I’m using the EcoTools Smoothing Detangler Hair Brush ($10.99) to get out tangles and smooth out my hair. Paddle brushes have always been one of my favorite brushes to use on my hair. What I like most about this brush is the way it feels through my hair. The soft bristles and padded cushion is very soothing to my head.

Using a rubber band, I put my hair up in a half ponytail.

Using the topsy tail technique, I part my hair and then flip my hair through the middle of section to create the first twist.

I repeat on the next section. I pull back my hair and include the hair from the first twist to create a second twist.

Repeat on the last layer of my hair. I like the look to be a little messy. Most pieces can be pinned using bobby pins.

On the last section, I pin my hair under the third twist. For an out of the office look, leave your hair unpinned for a casual vibe.

The look is complete. I pull out a few hairs in the front to frame my face. It’s an easy look to recreate in less than five minutes when you’re in a hurry to the office and you don’t want to put your hair in a bun or a pony tail.
