Summer Makeup Tips from the Pros

We’ve talked about taking care of your skin this summer, and now it’s time to talk about your makeup! The outside temps have been soaring sky high lately, and while the heat is great for outdoor activities, it’s not so good when it comes to your makeup. Summer heat usually calls for a bit of a changeup in your normal routine, and today we have some tips from the pros to help you keep everything in its place.

Moisturizer. This isn’t usually a new step, but starting with an oil-free moisturizer that offers UV protection is extremely important in the summer. You can even switch to a product that offers moisture, UV protection, and a foundation in one if you want all the benefits but not all the layers of products. Look for something that offers at least an SPF 15. This will help keep your skin hydrated and protected no matter where your adventures take you.

Primer. If you don’t usually prime your face, this might be an extra step for you, but primer does a fantastic job of keeping your foundation from melting in the heat. It’s also great for giving your makeup longer wear vs only using a foundation.

Lay off the powder. This may seem counterintuitive, but when powder mixes with moisture (aka, sweat) the result is caking. Not your best look! Switch your powder eyeshadows and blushes to creams that are easier to apply and will not cake and melt in the heat. If you do need to use a powder to soften the nose shine, blot with a paper towel first to avoid that caking effect.

Bronzer. A great bronzer will help you achieve that sought after sun-kissed glow without an ounce of damage. Bonus: it also makes your teeth look whiter! Choose one with a hint of gold (rose gold is our current fave!) for a beautiful healthy glow. 

Waterproof. For those pool/beach/lake days, waterproof eye makeup is an absolute must! I mean, unless you like the look of mascara running down your face!

Gloss. Switch from a lipstick to a gloss during the summer to help keep your lips moisturized and pretty. Make sure to find one with an SPF for UV protection as well, because your lips can burn in the summer sun too!
