It’s time to get chic for the summer. Time to put on that sexy summer clothes and hit the outdoors, especially the beach. But before having too much fun in the sun, let’s make sure that we are SUN proof. And what better than to start with our makeup. Let’s take a look at some helpful tips that will help our makeup look its best while making sure our skin stays nice and glowing.
1. Essential protection: Girls if you want to have fun and still look good make sure you protect your skin from damage this summer by using a moisturiser with an SPF factor of 15 or higher. Make sure you use it daily. This will help to combat those early signs of aging such as sun spots and fine lines. Apply your SPF moisturiser to a clean face and allow 10 minutes for it to absorb before applying your foundation.
2. Tone it down: If you dont want to feel like you’re walking around with a sticky mask in this hot weather, then tone it down and lighten your makeup usage. Foundation and powder may feel too heavy on your skin. Instead switch to a light coverage foundation or a tinted moisterizer. That and a little concealer should keep you glowing this summer.
3. Essential waterproofing: How many of you like to sport raccoon eyes? Yea, I didn’t think so either. There’s nothing more scary than walking around with mascara running down your eyes. Waterproof mascara is an essential tool that must be in your makeup bag during the summer. If you also get that then don’t forget to buy the eye makeup remover as waterproof mascara could be difficult to remove without it.
4. Cheeky cheeks: Don’t want to tan but want to look sunkissed? If you don’t like using fake tans and bronzing powders, the easiest way to achieve a healthy natural glow is with blush. Apply it along your cheekbones or the apples of your cheeks, depending on your face shape. Remember to build up the colour gradually until you get the soft natural glow that
you’re looking for.
