Using the right hair and beauty products is key to creating the hottest summer look and catching the right kind of attention this summer.
But if you don’t know how to use them, then they may just sit in your drawer going to waste. That would be a real shame.
Today’s the day to get them out or head to your local drugstore. You’re going to need several products to accomplish the best summer makeup looks.
Read on to learn about what it takes to achieve radiance and feel your best the entire summer long.
Getting That Effortless Glow
The first step to all of the best summer makeup looks is using a foundation or concealer to prepare your face for a day in the sun. Even if it’s just a sunblock, having some sort of foundational base layer on your skin is key to preventing skin damage.
Many women prefer to just wear a light powder on top of their SPF, but if you have problems with dark circles under your eyes, then applying a light concealer is helpful and can typically outlast the summer heat.
Another great option is using a BB or CC cream. These are combination products that provide your skin with vitamin, high-SPF, and rich facial lotions to hydrate your skin and give it a healthy glow.
The next step is choosing a highlighter and bronzer. Don’t be afraid to go bold. Many of the hottest celebrity looks are accomplished by applying highly contrasting pigments to achieve a natural look.
Make sure you check out some tutorials to help you learn to use your products. Jeffree Star is an incredibly talented makeup artist and although he has his own makeup line, he uses all sorts of products and loves giving honest reviews in his Youtube tutorials, they’re definitely worth checking out.
Sizzling Summer Makeup Looks
The next key to your best look is finding the right lip color. You will want to start with a lip scrub in the summer to prevent peeling.
Some people think summer is the best time for a bright red lip. While others prefer sparkling glosses in champagne and gold tones.
Next, you will want to focus on your eyes. Summer is a great time to match your eyes to your eye color.
