Summer is on its way, Hooray!
We can’t wait to ditch our heavy winter gear and dark colours for lighter, brighter things. This is the same for our beauty regime.
skin care products should be swapped each season for optimum skin health and make-up and hair styles can also be changed to reflect the hotter weather and all that comes along with it.
First of all, SUNSCREEN! Let us not forget to apply this daily. At least an spf 15. Sunscreen should actually be worn all year long but most importantly in the summer months when the weather is the hottest tempting us to bask in the outdoors longer. Sunscreen should be applied half an hour before sun exposure (UV rays also exist in a lot of indoor artificial light as well). Make-up can be applied over top of your sunscreen. Here is our top pick this season: La Roche-Posay Anthelios 30. It won’t cause breakouts and it doesn’t feel heavy or greasy, YAY!
Next, let’s switch up our make-up for something oil free and sheer. Complexion products, Opt for a powder and or a B.B. cream, try Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue and Maybelline Matte Maker powder. Heavy make-up just melts off, is suffocating to the skin and looks out of place in the bright hot summer heat.
Fake a sun kissed glow with your favorite bronzing powder dusted over cheeks, top of the forehead and lightly across the bridge of the nose for a natural look. We love our GLITZ GALZ Golden Goddess bronzing powder compact.
A bright lip paired with some mascara (waterproof if hitting a beach) is an all time favorite look this time of year. Quick and easy with an impact. Try these playful colours on: Make Up For Ever Bright Orange 40 or MAC Candy Yum Yum.
Its the perfect time to try that high pony, messy top knot or pulled back hairstyle. get your hair off your face and the back of your neck. This helps to keep you cooler and is much more manageable for swimming and summer activities. If you prefer your hair down, skip the hot tools, twist your wet hair in sections and let air dry for beach waves and throw on a summer hat. Add a loose braid to any style. Try these quick and easy summer ready styles:
now get out there with your fabulous self and enjoy the sunshine ☀️
