Using a good bronzer will make you glow and give you a summer shimmer. There are many kinds that come in compacts, loose powder, shimmer bricks and more. Some bronzers will last all day whereas some you may need to apply more regularly.
In summer, it’s likely your foundation doesn’t last as long as it does in the winter. Using a primer that helps to control shine will keep your makeup in check on those hot summer days! If it’s particularly warm, you can just apply a little primer and a dusting of powder for lovely glowing skin.
Wear Less Foundation
If you wear heavy makeup in summer, it’s likely to look unnatural and cakey. Opt for something such as a BB Cream, CC Cream, or tinted moisturizer. Products like these will help you to build a good coverage without looking too heavy for summer.
Using a powder contributes to set your makeup and keep it in place throughout the day. It means after you’ve achieved your perfect summer glow you can lock it in place and enjoy the sunshine. If you don’t know where to start with powders, look for something translucent or with just a hint of color. Ben Nye's luxury banana powder at Frends is a good example of a powder with just a trace of color. Powder also works a treat for setting under eye concealer and making your eyes sparkle.
Wear Bright-Colored Makeup
It’s summertime, so don’t be afraid to wear bright colors! Go for more bright eyeshadows in pinks, oranges, and more. Choosing brighter and bolder colors will help you to feel summer and glow from the inside out!
Use a Toning Mist
If you find the summer heat has your skin feeling hot and uncomfortable, you should invest in a toning mist spray. Spray the mist from a distance all over your face to feel instantly cooler. Some toning mists are perfect for setting makeup too!
Tone Down Lipstick
The heat in summer can dry out your lips and your lipsticks. Make sure you avoid heavy lipsticks and use moisturizing lipsticks or lip glosses. Choosing a color with a slight shimmer helps to add an extra summer glow too!
Drink More Water
It is so important to keep your skin and body hydrated in summer, especially if you are spending a lot of time outside. Being dehydrated will not only make you feel terrible but it will affect your skin too. Make a conscious effort in summer to drink more water and your skin will appreciate it too. If your skin feels good, your makeup will look good!
Use Blotting Papers
Blotting papers are a genius way to help you control shine throughout the day and keep your makeup fresh and glowing. You can use them any time to help you remove any dirt, oil, and preparation for a clearer summer complexion. Perfect to stash in your handbag.
