Quick Tip #5: Last All Day in the Sun Makeup Tips

"Summer means Heat and no one likes runny foundation and smeared mascara, so here are some tips on how to have fun in the sun and still look fresh and clean.

*Pro Tip* Always use primer. Primer on the skin and eyes. After you moisturize and before you apply your foundation put a thin coat of your favorite primer on. This will fill in any fine lines and act as a barrier for moisture and keep your makeup in place. Eyeshadow has a tendency to crease, so choose a silica based eye primer for underneath.

Pick a good SPF Sheer Tint rather than a foundation that is heavy and matte. Less product is better for the heat and for your complexion.

*Pro Tip* Carry blot film or blot powder in your person. Avoiding blotting skin throughout the day with pressed powders. Most powders darken with heat and moisture and look heavy over time.

Trade in your lip sticks for lip conditioner or a non-sticky lip gloss. Moisturizing your lips after being in the sun will keep them soft and youthful.

Choose a bronzer that gives you a natural looking tan. Place it on the areas around your face and neck where the sun would tan you.

Last, use waterproof mascara. Waterproof isn't what it used to be! If you're not ready to make the switch you can apply it to the ends of your lashes over top of your favorite mascara.

Have a beautiful and relaxing summer!"
