Beauty Makeup Tips in Summer™
However, it is essential in summer that you actually lighten your make up rather than increase it. If you cake on the make up in summer it will be visible for all to see and look quite stupid.
Furthermore, the heat of the sun may literally melt your face! with the result of not only looking bad but having a bad effect on your skin too.
Thus, stick to a little shimmering powder and highlight your eyes, maybe a little lipstick but otherwise leave as is.
Summer is not the time to pile on the makeup or whip up elaborate hairstyles. So, do I go bareface and pull my hair up into a knot every day to stay cool? I wish I could, but few of us can get away with that. So, here is a list of my favorites.
•First of all comes the sunblock. I never go out the door without a little protection. My face is already thanking me for that!
•While I might not apply a foundation, I do need a little color on my cheeks. I find that stains or blush creams give just the right amount of color and it looks natural.
•There is nothing prettier than seeing shiny hair on the beach and nothing worse than seeing long, dull, tresses. But it takes a little work. The sun is hard on your hair too. Condition well and use products especially formulated for the summer sun.
•I can get away without eye shadow, but I do need eye liner. And because I have oily lids, I always prep the lid. There is nothing worse that eye liner that has smeared. Not a pretty site. BTW, most cosmetic companies offer great products to prevent your eye makeup from melting.
•Heavy lipsticks aren't for summer either. Look for something sheer. I often mix my lipsticks with a little petroleum jelly. It softens the color and offers great shine too.
•Polish those toenails, and while you are at it, make sure that your heels are free of dead skin. You might not notice it, but everyone else will.
•Keep your eyes open for little summer bags. I recently picked one up that was part of a set from Victoria Secret. Have you checked out their fragrances? Now, I not only smell good, I have a great little bag as well!
Use a waterproof eyeliner for lasting power. You can also moisten your favourite shadow with water and apply it to your lash line.
Wear waterproof mascara to eliminate smudges under the eyes.
When it comes to cheeks, apply a stain to the apple to create a long-lasting effect.
Finish your look with the bronzer of your choice.
Once you apply your lipstick or gloss, place a tissue over your lips, run your finger across the paper and then remove the tissue. This will help to get rid of the excess but will not take away the pigment.
Last but not least, have fun with your makeup. If you make a mistake you can always start again.€™t
