Makeup that Beats the Heat

One of the best things about Southern California is the shimmery, golden sun almost all year round. Summer is the best time for adventures, long days, and late nights. I’m always on the lookout for makeup products that last and tips to keep me fresh-faced. These great beauty tips will leave you glowy and bronzed throughout your summer adventure!

1—The base. The most important part of a full face of makeup is the base that it rests on. The key to long-lasting makeup is a trustworthy foundation. I like to go for the Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation. This foundation feels natural and smooth and blends perfectly into my skin. Also, it has SPF 15 which is great for a day out in the sun. Not only does it cover my small blemishes, it’s lightweight and lasts all day and night. So no worries about touch ups on your day out.

2—The eyes. I love a good smokey eye for the summer. My favorite palette of neutrals, with a little pop of color, is the Too Faced Chocolate Bar. These eyeshadows are highly pigmented and blendable. And it smells amazing! I always start with the light browns and slowly add in darker shades. I top it off with a little shimmer on my inner lid and I feel glamorous and effortless.

3—The glow. My favorite part of a makeup look is finishing off with a gorgeous bronzer and highlighter to give me a bronze glow that leaves me feeling like a goddess. One of my favorite products this summer is the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer. This two-in-one bronzer and highlighter leaves me with a natural color and strobe. It’s the perfect way finish off a glowy summer look and locks in that ray of sunlight.

Extra Tip

If you feel like making your summer look a little more glam and chic, I love to add a rose-toned liquid lipstick and top it off with a glittery gloss!
