With summer here, it might be time to change up your beauty regime a little. With warmer weather, it can be trickier to wear the same makeup that you would at other times of the year. There are some dos and don’ts when it comes to summer makeup and beauty. So here are a few ideas of what you should and shouldn’t use over the summer months.
Lighter makeup is a great idea during the warmer months of summer. You might sweat a little more in summer and get an extra shine on your face. So a heavy foundation isn’t always the best option in summer. It can be too heavy and clog your pores. So think about something lighter like a BB cream. Having a moisturiser that doubles as a light foundation is certainly a winner. It is even better if you can get a cream that contains sunscreen in it. Then you won’t have to worry about forgetting to apply sunscreen. If you find that you do get an extra shiny face, then a little powder might be a good idea. Keep a compact with you and then you can just apply it as and when it is needed. Remember to keep it looking light and fresh, though.
As you might sweat more, it is important to choose a waterproof mascara in summer. You don’t want to end up looking having panda eyes when you are out and about over summer. There are some great waterproof mascaras out there. Look for some reviews online to find out the best option for you. There are some fantastic reviews of different waterproof mascaras at www.goodhousekeeping.com/.
You get your feet out a lot more during summer. So it is a good idea to have a pedicure to have your feet looking their best. You could even do your own at home pedicure with a little foot spa and moisturiser. It wouldn’t be summer without a bright and summery nail polish on your toenails. Bright pinks and coral colours are great for summer. There are some great shades to choose from at somewhere like www.pinkgellac.com/pink-nail-polish-colors. Matching your fingernails works perfectly for summer too.
In summer it can be a time that dries out your lips. Sun could lead to getting cold sores too. So think about keeping your lips cared for and looked after. A petroleum jelly is a good help to keep them feeling moisturised. Lip gloss and shine is great for summer too. It is a better option over a dark matte lipstick. It keeps it feeling all light and fresh which is perfect for the summer months.
Drinking water is a must for good skin over summer. It is the best beauty product that you can have over summer, and it is completely natural. Be sure to drink plenty for clear and well-hydrated skin. Have you got any recommendations for any particular beauty products over summer? I would love to hear what your favourites are.
