Happy Summer, Eco Beauty! With the change of season comes a change in our beauty routine and summer definitely calls for a fresh approach. From the hot weather to the carefree vibes, summer beauty is all about looking your best with the least amount of time, effort and products… and the least likelihood of summer makeup meltdowns!
Here are my top 3 tips to keep your gorgeous glow going strong this summer:
- Keep face makeup minimal. Rather than applying foundation all over the face, target only areas of discoloration, such as under the eyes and around the nose. Using clean fingers or a concealer brush, apply foundation or concealer and blend well into surrounding skin. Lightly powder with a powder brush to minimize shine and extend wear throughout the day. Try: Vapour Beauty Luminous Foundation and Alima Pure Pressed Foundation
- Refresh and hydrate. In hot summer months, our skin is detoxing and we can benefit from more hydration from the inside out. Freshen up makeup while nourishing your skin by spritzing it with a floral mist. After applying makeup, a floral mist can help set the makeup and during the day it can help cool you and soothe any inflammation from the heat. Try: Om Aroma Toning Mist in Lavender
- Lighten up on lips. Skip the matte, opaque lipstick in lieu of lightweight, sheer lipgloss. Choose a brightly colored lipgloss in summery shades of pink, red or coral. It will instantly brighten up your face, without the fuss of carefully applied lipstick. You won’t even need a mirror, so it’s perfect for touching up on-the-go! Try: Modern Minerals Emotive Lipgloss in B of Love (pink), Goddess (red) or Coral Glow (coral).
So remember, less is more when it comes to summer makeup. Give my recommendations a try and let your natural beauty shine, glow and radiate like the sun’s rays!
