I believe that one must look his/her best any time, any day, and no matter what season it is. With the bright, sunny weather in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s an absolute joy to be embracing the warm days, but of course, we can’t deny the change of the way we do our makeup – thus , a Summer Special by The Mineral Makeup Blog!
Here are some tips to give you a sizzling hot summer look, with the stunning look of being fresh all day!
With this heat, full coverage foundations are officially out, because they don’t feel so great on the skin. Opt for lighter formulas of your regular foundations to obtain a sheer, no makeup look that would make you feel that you’re not really wearing any makeup on.
If you need coverage, get your full-coverage foundation and use concealer brush to spot apply on problem areas. Feather around the edges to make it “seam-less” ( what a term. haha )
With the sheer coverage that the foundation gives, under eyes are more bare, and seen. With this, undereye correctors or brighteners should be used to give the look of a good night’s sleep, and youth.
Blush and Bronzer :
With this season’s no-makeup look, blushes that give off a gorgeous, natural flush. Pinks don’t look too natural this season ( they belong to winter, I believe ), and natural hues of peach and reds look very promising.
Bronzers on the other hand amplify your tan, and give it a more beautiful color when applied to on top of your shoulders, applied vertically on the line where the abs are supposed to be on the stomach for contouring, and applied vertically on the middle of each hip to make them look smaller. Whew! But most of all, it graces your cheeks with a sunkissed glow!
