Ah, summer — as much as I hate to admit it, my routine is always a bit more difficult to master during this time of year. In the winter months, I can lather, exfoliate and hydrate with the best of them, but once the warmer temperatures arrive, the 'natural look' is simply more time consuming for me. And it's no wonder — with humid days, hotter nights and an on-the-go schedule, it can be difficult to keep a look intact. After a full on meltdown this past weekend (literally, my makeup melted away completely) i've decided to get back to these essential tricks:
Opt for cream-based products. The finish looks more natural and sets well onto skin. Another bonus? They can be used a multitude of ways (think blush, lipstick, eyeshadow, highlight, etc). I can't get enough of RMS Beauty's products lately. Quality ingredients, great colors, and make the skin glow — perfect for summer!
Prime the skin. With this sweltering heat, even the longest lasting products won't stand a chance. Switch out your daily moisturizer for a primer with an SPF. It'll add an extra layer of protection from the sun, in addition to keeping that makeup in place.
Waterproof is never a bad move. Waterproof makeup has evolved from just your basic mascara and eyeliner. We're now seeing shadows, lipsticks, blush and even foundation on the market in many shades and textures. Check out my favorites below, they're sure to be on heavy rotation in this makeup kit until fall.
