Summer Makeup Tips For Pampered Skin

Summer is here, which means it’s time to put away the oils and creams. It’s hot, so expect some perspiration while you’re outside in the sun; which is exactly why heavy foundation and concealers don’t make sense this season. Here are a few simple tips to keep your makeup fresh and feeling light and cool this summer.

Makeup Primer: Go For The Spray

By using a primer spray instead of liquid primer, you’re giving your skin a fresh look and can even use it to during the day to make sure your makeup stays on. A quick search for a primer spray can retrieve quite a few options to choose from, however we suggest you go for an organic primer that works well with your skin type. Tip: use a rose water spray before applying your makeup and you’re good to go. It’s natural and helps to keep your skin hydrated.

Makeup Tools: Give Your Brush A Break

This summer it’s time to give your trusted makeup brush a break and steer away from heavy makeup tools. Try using a makeup sponge or your fingers to apply your makeup. You’ll find a makeup sponge is quite effective and not as heavy as your brush. Use a makeup sponge for layering and achieving an amazing look. Or, work with your fingers for a natural finish.

Makeup Compact: Get The Loose Powder

Trust loose powder this summer to keep your makeup simple, non-layered and fresh. Loose powder won’t weigh down your skin and helps to compliment your additional products. Carry a compact with you and you’re good to go. When re-applying use a tissue to blot excess oils.
