Summer Ready Makeup!

The sun has come out, and the weather is warm! I am super excited about summer, but with the sweltering heat comes a new makeup routine. Here are a few tips to keep your makeup in tact in the hot weather, and by the pool!

Let's start with foundation. Generally in the summer you'll need a little less coverage and something easy with an SPF to protect you from the sun. I like to use a tinted moisturizer, simply because it is easy to use and gets the job done. My favorite one right now is the Sonia Kashuk tinted moisturizer that can be found in target for about $12. Super Super affordable!

A tinted moisturizer will give you a nice and dewy finish without feeling oily, or looking too too shiny. Set it with a really light translucent powder and you're
ready to go.

Priming your eyes is the next important thing. You want to keep your eyeshadow look vibrant and long lasting throughout the hot day. You may be at the pool or just hanging out. My favorite to use especially in the summer is Urban Decay Primer Potion in Sin. The primer is tinted with a light champagne shimmer that would look great under your summer bronzed eyes, or even just alone. You can find UDPP in Sin at any Ulta or Sephora.

As for your eyeshadow color, always be yourself! Do whatever you like! My favorite to do in the summer are bronzed smokey eyes. Sometimes I'll add in a pop of color somewhere, but the bronzed look is really in for this summer!

I hope everyone enjoyed this little post.
