Put your best face forward during warm-weather months with these easy, breezy, summery tips.
If you like a healthy summer glow, but hate risking wrinkles or, worse, skin cancer, bronzer can give you the look you are after. Put a bit on a makeup brush, they apply to your cheekbones, forehead, chin, down your nose, and along your jawline for a natural look.
Hot temperatures can melt even meticulously applied makeup, but that doesn't mean you need to go bare when you want to put your best face forward.
To make makeup last -- and stay in place -- layer on cosmetics; use eye shadow primer before brushing on neutral-colored shadows, and apply a cream blush, then top it with a similar shade of a powder. Use foundation only where you need it -- like on blemishes or the red areas around your nose and chin. Then finish with a light dusting of powder.
For those who like their lashes lush, waterproof mascara is a dream product: It resists running throughout the summer's sweat, swimming, and unexpected downpours. Use sparingly and with caution, however: These tough formulations can be hard to remove, and too much tugging can lead to thinning of your lashes.
Heat and sun can parch your skin, and make your complexion look shot. Keep yourself watered both inside (it's never more important than summer to drink your eight glasses of H20) and out, with a face spray that can cool off parched skin -- and keep you looking fresher. For an icy blast, store it in the fridge.
Washing your face correctly is an essential part of your skin care, especially during the sunny, sweaty summer months. The right cleanser will leave your skin looking and feeling its best immediately. If skin feels tight and in need of moisturizer, your cleanser is too drying. If skin still doesn't feel clean, you're using one that's too filmy.
