Are you ready? Then hop in and we’re good to go! First stop is the …
We all know know that a good primer is important to prep our skin in order to help makeup stay all day long. Therefore, it’s crucial to have a primer handy especially during the hot summer. It’s one of the best summer makeup tips for the pros and beginners alike.
Drugstore:ELF Mineral Face Primer
High-end: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer with SPF 30
2. Tinted Moisturizer
As the weather is getting warmer, we might consider swapping out our long time bff heavy foundation with the BB cream and tinted moisturizer for hotter days. And let’s not forget the SPFs! Be it BB cream or tinted moisturizer, both serve to make your skin look flawless with added bonus of protecting your skin from the uv light at the same time. These two lightweight options have an SPF built on them.
Drugstore: Olay Fresh Effect BB Cream with SPF 15
High-end: SKIN79 Super BB cream with SPF 25
3. Waterproof Concealer
Okay, for those of you who doesn’t have dark circles under your eyes, you may skip this but I need to read this since I have dark circles under my eyes either due to lack of sleep, pigmentation irregularities or the old fashion genetic (thanks, Mom!). Using a waterproof concealer during the summer months will keep problem areas at bay throughout the day 🙂
Drugstore: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer
High-end: Lancome Effacernes Water Protective Undereye Concealer
4. Cheek Stain
When it’s 90 degrees outside, powder blush might cause to separate and turn out to look cakey after a while. Another good alternative is to get cream blush or cheek stain which will last longer and when applied on your cheeks, it will look like it’s glowing from within.
Drugstore: Sonia Kashuk cream, blush (I did a review recently) or Maybelline Dream Bouncy
High-end: Tarte Airblush Maracuja Blush
5. Cream Eyeshadow
Similar concept as the blush, cream eyeshadow last longer than powder eyeshadow when you’re out on the hot scorching sun. The eyeshadow cream consistency helps the product absorb better into the skin as opposed to sitting on top of it. A brilliant idea o making it a beauty essential for summertime.
Drugstore: Maybelline Eye Studio Color Tattoo 24hr Cream Gel Shadow or Milani Bella Eyes Gel Powder Eyeshadow
High-end: Givenchy Ombre Couture Cream Eyeshadow – waterproof color long lasting up to 16 hrs
Bronzer is the most popular makeup product for summer. In my opinion, one must not leave home without applying bronzer in the summer. Bronzer gives dimension and color on the high point of your face, making it look like a sun-kissed glow on the forehead, cheekbones, chin and nose.
Drugstore: Milani Bronzer XL All Over Glow
High-end: Hourglass Ambient Bronzer
7. Tinted Lip Balm
Heavy lipstick in the summer? No way. I would prefer to go with buttery lipstick that’s no too heavy but still gives a decent color stain on lips. On top of that a lip gloss with SPF will be great!
Drugstore: NYX Butter Lipstick
High-end: Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment with SPF 15
