Summer is the perfect for creating memories or relaxing with friends. Unfortunately, summer weather is not perfect for wearing makeup. However there’s no need to fret as Miss Moxie is here with tips on an easy, natural summer look that lasts all day and can be built on for night.
Keep it Cool
One of the best discoveries we’ve found is Almay Wake Up Mineral foundation, which you can find at drugstores or www.almay.com. Not only does mineral make-up look natural, but it’s water-infused so it’ll stick to your skin.
Use this as your base and put it on like any other mineral foundation.
Keep it Cheeky
Next, use a powder blush because it’ll stick to your skin better. Our favorite is from Carmindy’s line for Sally Hansen’s Natural Beauty products. Try the shade called “Ethereal.” It’s a bright pink that flatters any skin tone and has shimmer in it so it’ll be perfect for nighttime too. It can be found in any drug store or www.salleyshansennaturalbeauty.com.
Now, using a big brush, swirl it over your cheeks. Make sure to use a light hand because with all that summer fun, you won’t need to much blush.
Keep it Constant
One problem with eye make up is keeping it from melting off in the heat. Use Urban Decay’s Primer Potion, found at www.urbandecay.com, Sephora, or Ulta.
After the primer, put on a fun shade of eyeliner like purple or teal. These colors are flattering for most eyes. Check out Maybelline’s Eye Studio Lasting Drama.
To make your look nighttime ready, apply more eyeliner and smudge it a bit to create a lighter version of the smoky eye look.
Keep it Clear
It might seem strange, but clear mascara is perfect for summer because it won’t smudge in the heat or be ruined by water. It will still define your lashes, and that’s all that counts, right?
Try MAX Factor Clear Mascara found at drugstores or www.maxfactor.com.
Keep it Colorful
Finish off your look with natural looking lips. Tinted lip balms are stellar because they color your lips, but also nourish them. Bright pink and fuchsia are some popular shades for summer.
These are also really bright colors with some shimmer as well, so they’ll be great for parties.
Try Lancome Juicy Tubes in Cherry Burst or Magic Spell. These can be found at www.lancome-usa.com or department stores.
Follow these tips and you’ll have easy breezy summer make up that will last throughout the day and well into the night.
