Summer make up tips: Feel the HEAT!!

Summer is here and its not leaving anytime soon! Here are some tips for your make up this season. Whethere you are on the way to the beach or a hot night club in Miami, these tips are perfect for you! So go ahead! Soak up all that solar goodness. Just don’t forget your sunblock!


  •  To avoid makeup breakdown this summer, it is important to prep your T-zone with a light antiperspirant product. (Your T-zone is across your forehead and down unto your nose!)
  • Apply a lightweight primer, and then apply a lightweight foundation. It’s better if you opt for a tinted moisturizer with SPF instead of your regular foundation. Tinted moisturizers feel much lighter on skin. If you do not want to spend money on a tinted moisturizer then here is what you can do. Just combine a small amount of your liquid foundation with an equally small amount of moisturizer. It will thin it out and provide you with a lighter coat.
  • Stay away from concealer; apply a small amount of foundation to conceal any spots.
  •  Avoid using pressed powder in the summer because it can form patches on skin. If you must use it, use it sparingly.
  • Apply an eye primer and then use a soft shimmery eye shadow on your lids. To get that glow on your lids opt for a colored eye gloss. These don’t crease as quickly as a cream shadow. Do not opt for cream eye shadow as they can melt off the face in hot summer months.
  • Apply waterproof or long-wear gel eyeliner in colors like brown, black and navy. Curl your lashes and apply a few coats of waterproof mascara. It is still a good idea to use a smearproof clear lash gel for a glimmering effect.
  • For cheek color, apply a light layer of a gel or liquid blush. These stay longer than powder blush. A light shade of bronzer on cheekbones and chin gives you a beautiful suntan.


Remember, the key to keeping your skin together is protection all the way around this summer!
