Summertime Makeup Help

It's getting HOT out there so you know what time it is.... SUMMERTIME!!! Time to look cute in your new summer dresses. Although we have soooo many great summer clothing choices, this is the time of year we can have the most makeup disasters and skin irritations. We have to pay the most attention to our faces and the makeup we put on it. Here is a list of some tips to look sexy in the summer while protecting you.

* If you plan to be outdoors for extended period of times try to give yourself a vacation from your foundation. Try out a nice bronzer or gold shimmer and put it along your cheekbones. It's also cool to put a little under brows. Tip: This is a good time to try out tinted moisturizer.

* If you are one of those lovely people who just can't live without your foundation, you must remember your skin tone has a tendency to change in the summer so you may need to purchase your summer foundation to go with your skin. Tip: Try to limit it to just the center of the face; Also if things start getting a little crazy and you want to reapply, try not to, due to the moisture this could create an caked up look after being in the hot weather.

* Pleaseee use sunscreen with SPF 30 over your face and body if you planning on spending time on the beach or those lovely music festivals and parties this summer. Just because you have sunshades on, it doesn't protect the rest of your face which could leave you with rings around your eyes without the proper protection.

* If you are a eyeliner type of girl try to keep things light or none at all when out in the weather. Tip: Try eye pencils of warm chocolate lightly put on for the summer.

* Keep your lips looking great with a moisturizer lip product with some SPF. Tip: If you must use a liquid type and outdoors try to keep it somewhere cool, maybe in your cooler.
