Our Guide to the Perfect Summer Beauty Routine
Skincare is the most important part of any beauty routine to have a flawless makeup application. At the very least, having a good cleanser and sunscreen is crucial for taking care of your skin! Lip care is also an important step that many look over. Try our Lip Exfoliator and follow with our Comfort Lip Balm for moisturizing lip prep!
During the summer, a full-coverage foundation and concealer can feel too heavy on the skin and be more prone to sweating off. Instead, try a skin tint or a BB cream to even out your skin without the heavy feeling of foundation! (Pro Tip: if you have oily skin, set your foundation and concealer with a loose powder and oil-controlling setting spray to prolong the wear!)
Summer is a great time to experiment with different blushes, bronzers, and highlighters! If you’re used to using power products, try using creams or liquids! If you normally use pink-toned blushes, try peach or coral-toned blushes! For a longer-lasting flushed look, try layering a powder blush, bronzer, and/or highlighter on top of a cream or liquid color!
On the eyes, we like to keep it simple with a bit of bronzer in the crease to add color and dimension and maybe a glittery eyeshadow on the lid and inner corner for a pop of shimmer as well. Finish the look off with a lengthening or volumizing waterproof mascara on the lashes!
Our favorite and most important part of our summer routine is LIPS! Whether you’re wearing a full face of makeup or no makeup at all, lipgloss is a great way to accentuate your features! For the ultimate natural look, our Clear Gloss “Pure” is a great way to add shine and a juicy look to your lips. For those who like a bit more drama, our Plum Gloss “Power” is the perfect deep purple gloss to add a bit of boldness to your look!
