Summer is finally here after a dreadfully long winter, but we don’t want to get too excited and go overboard with out makeup now do we? Trust me, I’ve seen some colors that have me looking twice. No offense. But some things are best left for circus. Anyhoo, check out these top 5 summer makeup tips:
1. GO SEMI-BARE!
Caking up your face with too much foundation can be disastrous in the summer heat, especially when you sweat. There are nude foundations you can try, but you can also just opt for the concealer and leave it at that.
2. (Should you go for the foundation) OBEY YOUR TONE OR MAKE SURE ITS EVEN!
The COVERGIRL Queen foundation and Whipped Creme are my personal favorites because they’re all in one: foundation, concealer, and powder, with a smooth glowy finish.
3. LIPS THAT ARE PLUMP-PLUSH-SEXY!
I don’t really wear lipstick during summer. I more into lip gloss by then but I know, we don’t want that stickiness when we try to drink our smoothies or lemonades. So I recommend COVERGIRL’s LipPerfection Jumbo Gloss Balm. It’s this healthy lip balm with mango and shea for a smooth finish and makes your lips appear soft.
4. VIBRANT EYES!
We don’t want to do too much to our face, but we can let the eyes pop more with a fierce eyeshadow and complimentary mascara. In that case, I’d opt for COVERGIRL Queen Collection 1-Kit Eye Shadow and Lashblast Lengthening Mascara (I know, I’m a lover of all things COVERGIRL. But come on, their products are good).
5. This should have been first on my list, but DO NOT FORGET YOUR SUNSCREEN!
There are tons of products out there deemed as highly effective to protect your skins. Find the best one for you and be sure to stick in that beach bag when you head out in the summer heat. Here’s one of my favs:
