5 Simple Summer Beauty Routine Tips

Thursday, September 11, 2014

To look your best during the dog days of summer, follow these simple steps for a clean, classic "no makeup" face:

1. Concealer:
If you're able to pull it off, now is the time to skip foundation all together. Instead use a creamy concealer to hide any imperfections. Lightly dab and blend the concealer under eyes and over any red spots or blemishes.
2. Blush:
A quick sweep of blush on the cheeks will add life and color to your entire face. During these summer months, try a peachy-coral shade to play up a tan and experiment with the 'it' shade of the season.
3. Mascara:
There's no need for shadows and liners when you're going for the summer casual look. Instead use a dark brown or black mascara to add some definition and open up the eyes. For extra oomph look for mascara that curls the lashes and always go with a waterproof formula to minimize the chance of smudges and flakes.
4. Moisturizer with SPF:
No matter your look, it's important to start every day with an application of SPF to protect skin from the sun's damaging rays. Before beginning any makeup routine, apply a nourishing moisturizer with SPF to the face and neck.
5. Gloss:
Finally, to complete your "no makeup" look, add some shine and shimmer to your pout with a quick swipe of lip gloss. Pick a bright shade to add extra emphasis to your pout or go with a hue that closely matches your lip color for a more natural look. Don't forget to toss the gloss into your purse, so you have it with you for touch-ups while on the go.
