6 Makeup Tips for the Summer



Curl your lashes

Curl your lashes with an eyelash curler before applying mascara. Curling your lashes will open up the eye, give you that “doll eye”.  (MAC COSMETICS EYELASH CURLER)

Wet your beauty blender

Blenders are made to be used damp, this allows for less product to be absorbed into the sponge. A wet blender is bouncy, this will give you a more flawless makeup look.  (MARBLE SKIN CO MARSHMALLOW SPONGE)

Mix your foundation with your moisturizer or sunblock

Mixing your foundation into your moisturizer or sunblock will give you a natural and dewy look.  (DIOR FOREVER FOUNDATION and HELLIO CARE SUNBLOCK)

Eliminate puffy eyes

Use a caffeine eye cream under the eye to reduce puffiness. Use a quartz roller to massage the under eye and reduce puffiness even further for a more fresh and wide eyed look.  (THE INKY LIST CAFFEINE EYE CREAM)

Ditch the black eyeliner for brown 

Browns are softer and will give you a more natural look while framing the eye and allowing your eye colour to pop.  (HEBE BEAUTY, LONG WEAR EYELINER IN QUEST)

Skip sunbathing but don’t skip the bronzer

A splash of bronzer over the cheekbones, the center of the forehead, temples, chin, and even the eyelids give you a healthy, sun kissed look without compromising your skin.  (BOBBI BROWN BRONZER IN GOLDEN LIGHT)
