Summertime Make-up Tips and Tricks
by Karen Scott
Summertime is sweaty and sticky, which can wreak havoc on the makeup that took you 45 minutes to apply "just so" before you left the house.
Makeup is important in the summer, not just to even things out, but to keep your face protected from harmful UVA rays. This summer, pack a light makeup bag for summer time fun.
Whether you are hanging out at the beach or poolside, here are a few makeup tips that will keep you looking hot!
1. Don't let it melt off.
Waterproof mascara, eyeliner and lip liners will help when that big splash of water heads right in your direction.
2. Lighten up!
For a nice light, even coverage on your face try a tinted moisturizer. (I like Aveeno's Positively Radiant tinted moisturizer with SPF 30.)
3. Skip the lipstick.
For lips, ditch the heavy color and try a colored lip balm that's light and moisturizing. I like Burt's Bees lip balms and they come in a variety of shades.
4. Don't forget about your cheeks.
Cheeks stains add just the right amount of color to your already sun-kissed face. Tarte Cosmetics makes a nice cheek stain.
Always, always, always apply sunscreen. Don't forget to apply sunscreen to your hands and ears too. My favorite sunscreen is by Coola Organic Suncare. They also carry a line of sun care products for babies.
Most importantly, don't forget to have lots of fun with your family and friends. Have a happy and safe summer!!
