Top 6 Summer Makeup Tips

Keeping your makeup looking fresh and gorgeous during the hot weather months can sometimes be a challenge for most women. Not to mention the fact that most of us are so busy during the summer that the last thing we want to worry about is whether our makeup is melting off or running down our face.  No one wants to be a hot mess.


I’m going to share with you my Top 6  makeup tips and tricks to help you achieve a beautiful, fresh look that’s simple to create.


Step 1. Natural Glow

Foundation is essential in creating a soft natural glow. The trick during the summer months is to use a lightweight foundation or even a tinted foundation with SPF.  Not only will it even out your complexion, but it will also give you the protection needed.

 Step 2. Bronze Baby


Once you’ve applied your foundation and your skin looks flawless, add a touch of bronzer for a sun kissed glow.

Apply the bronzer in small circular motions to your forehead, cheeks, nose and chin.

Step 3. Bright Eyes

Time to enhance your beautiful eyes. I suggest using light, shimmery, pretty shadows. Keep it simple during the day. Apply a gorgeous champagne shimmer eye shadow over the entire lid, this is all you will need to brighten your eyes.

Step 4. Define


The most common request  from my clients is that they want their eyes to ‘Pop”.

By creating definition at the lash line with a liner, it will make your eyes appear larger and brighter.

I recommend that you choose a liner that is waterproof and smudge proof, especially during the hot humid summer days.

Using a liner, start at the outer corner of the eye and work inward using small little strokes at the root of the lashes. Not only will this define your eyes, but it will also make your lashes appear fuller.

5. Lengthen your Lashes

Mascara is truly a miracle product. I don’t leave the house without applying it.

A great mascara will not only lengthen your lashes, but they will appear fuller.

Apply a few coats of mascara for added volume.

Start by wiggling the wand back and forth in a zig zag motion at the base of your lashes and then pull the wand up through your lashes for a fuller defined look.
