As the summer months pass us by, the rising temperatures keep on coming. Depending on where you live in the world, it is hot outside and your makeup is facing the heat. Switching from your favorite full coverage foundation to a lightweight option is necessary to most. However, there are other ways to take a little weight off your skin. Whether you are having fun in the sun or preparing to go back to school, these products can work for anyone.
Start with your face makeup. Yes, you can switch to a tinted moisturizer, but a flawless base starts with a lightweight and glow-inducing primer. If you have dry skin, this type of product will be your best friend. On the other hand, if your skin is oily, you may be better off sticking to your matte base. Try mixing a liquid highlighter into your foundation for a similar effect.
For spot highlighting on any skin type, ditch your powder highlighter for a liquid one to apply on the highest points of the face. One less powder will prevent caked-on product and promote glowing, healthy looking skin. The one product that most use year-round to add warmth to their faces is bronzer! You can’t go wrong with a matte bronzer applied to the outer areas of the face.
The best part of makeup is its versatility. If you like or dislike a product, feel free to add or take away any when deciding your favorites to put into your routine for the hot weather months.
One product you could consider adding to your routine is a deep bronze-colored eyeliner in place of the go-to classic black. The warmer shade will still add definition to the eyes, but will also update your look for a lighter summer look.
Speaking of eyes, a golden glow is always an easy way to elevate your summer makeup look from glowing to glittering. Stila’s Magnificent Metals are easy to use and are long-lasting on the eyes. Pop it in your inner corner or across the lid—the possibilities are truly endless.
If you are a lipstick lover, you may enjoy a lip topper. A lip topper is essentially a gloss with shimmer and glitter throughout it. Applying it to the center of the lips will make your lips look bigger, whereas applying it all over the lips will give your look a shimmering glow to make your look complete.
Trying these different products during the summer is a fun way to brighten up your complexion and try out glowing products.
