As the temperature rises, your makeup needs to adjust. Some things need to be tossed, others put away until fall, and of course what season would be complete without a few new fun things.
I always feel like I want and need less makeup on my skin during the summer. There is nothing worse than a face full of foundation melting in the summer sun or a creamy pencil smudged underneath your eye. So here are some quick tips for fabulous summer makeup that will get you through the warmest days.
Replace your heavy foundation for a light tinted moisturizer. If you insist on keeping your foundation, try one that is water-based instead of oil- based so it does not melt under the summer sun.
If you can't go out without your eye liner, try a liquid eyeliner or dip a wet slanted brush into powder eye shadow and use that as your eye liner.
To avoid running mascara, use a blowdryer to warm an eyelash curler for five seconds. Curl your lashes. Then brush them with clear mascara. This a great natural look for the beach and will look perfect the whole day.
While I love peach and pink blush, sometimes I use a powder bronzer on my cheeks, chin, tip of my nose, and forehead to give that sunkissed look.
I don't like how lipsticks tend to crust on my lips or smudge when it gets hot. Instead, try a lip tint with a sheer gloss to really make your lips look shiny and beautiful.
