Make sure you are glowing all summer long with our summertime make up tips. If you are not used to wearing makeup, but would like to feel a little more glam this summer, read on to find out how you can feel and look better this summer.
Up Your Shade
If you are heading on holiday, then it will be worthwhile for you to invest in a darker foundation for when that sunshine hits. If you are paler then you should take the bronzing tools which are needed to emphasise the sun-kissed glow which you will be getting from the summer sun.
Choose a shade of foundation and concealer that you will be able to use for both your winter and summer colouring. Tinted moisturisers are great for mixing with your normal colours and you could purchase one which is slightly darker for the summer. Choosing a moisturiser or foundation which has an SPF will also help you to avoid dreaded sunburn.
The last thing you want to do while you are on holidays is spending your full night. Cream eyeshadow is so easy to use and they are often more water-resistant and long-wearing than powdery options. You may find that Powder shadows can shift with the sweat and oils of your face and end up under the eye instead of on the lid.
Prepare & Prime
When you are on holiday, the sun is unavoidable. Due to sun cream and other products, your skin may become slightly oily. You may find that if you have oily skin that your foundation may separate which can make it uneven and blotchy.
Experts say that Primer creates a shield which is an excellent base for foundation. Truth be told, pores open up in warmer weather, which means they are more visible to the naked eye.
What did we do before waterproof mascara was a thing? We doubt that there will be any rain where you are going but there may be some sea water and a pool! A good water proof mascara can help you to avoid those awful under-eye smears. Keep it to the top lashes and you should be good to go.
The more tanned you become the less bronzer you will need, however, a touch of bronzer can completely change your makeup look this summer. Use bronzer sparingly by keeping it on the apples of the cheeks. Lightly apply it over your forehead and right below your cheek bone.
Kylie Jenner lips all day long! If you are looking for a lip colour that will not dry or break in the heat, lip stains are the way to go.
