Don’t forget to apply the proper base
Taking care of your skin is more important than knowing the right makeup look to do. First of all, never forget to wear this base during the summer days when the sun tends to dry your skin more quickly. Then, choose a moisturizer suitable for your skin type. Keep in mind that, when using an oil-free moisturizer in the morning you should know that the foundation you should choose should also be an oil-free one.
Add the right amount of bronzer
We know that bronzer makes our eyes look brighter, and our whole face more defined. But, despite everyone needs a little color and warmth on their face (and body), to keep the results look natural and also fresh, you should know what type of bronzer and how much to apply. Choose to apply the bronzer on the areas the sun naturally hits you like for example on your forehead, nose, cheekbones and chin. Applying bronzer under your eyes or on your lips will make you look unnatural and over baked. You don’t want that right?
Add a staying powder to your eyeshadow
During the summer days, eyeshadow tends to last too little. Especially when you use eye cream on your lids or you just sweat a lot. These factors can seriously break down your makeup and eyeshadow as well. In order to minimize this effect, try to create a powdery base on your lids before applying the eyeshadow so it can stay for a longer time. You can use a normal face powder for a better effect.
Use vibrant, summer colors
Summer is the perfect time of the year to play with bright, vivid colors. These type of colors have the potential to brighten the face and give it a more youthful image. Also, they tend to make your skin look more sun-touched and glowy. You can even use lipstick with bright colors such as pink or peachy orange or you can just add these colors on your eye make-up by learning the right applying techniques so you don’t create a fake, exaggerated look. (Blend them with other, neutral colors)
Use waterproof mascara
Water-resistant mascaras are your best friend during summer days. They are the easiest way to avoid Panda-looking eyes. The main factor that ruins good-looking mascara is sweat. Waterproof mascaras just don’t care about sweat or ocean water. They stay on your eyelashes during the whole day that is why they are one of the most favorite makeup products of all times.
Use glossy lipsticks
During the winter times, glossy lipsticks tend to create an unbalanced and fake look. But, during summer days, these types of lipsticks are a great option to add more freshness and youthfulness to your look. Using soft, feminine colors such as soft pink, beige, orange or even coral red with a little glossy definition, makes you look wide awake, young and sweet.
