My Summer Birthday Must Have!

Hi summer lovers!  Summer is here and it has been hot!  There are also so many birthday celebrations during the summer, so I will be sharing with you what my summer birthday look favorites are.  All of you are probably wondering which makeup is going to last through a hot summer day at the beach, or what's going to last you all night while dancing!  My birthday was in the beginning of June, and my makeup stayed on all night while dancing!  Below is my birhtday look and a few makeup items that will be sweat proof or water proof/resistant.  I also have been super busy with work and of course celebrating summer, so I apologize for the lack of posting.  Enjoy!
