Summer Makeup Tips

If you’re like me, there comes a time during the year that you swap out your winter wardrobe with your summer wardrobe in your closet. It goes without saying that unless you live somewhere with the same climate all year round, you are probably wearing different types of clothes for the different seasons. The same goes with your makeup! Adjustments should be made to your makeup routines depending on the season. We’ll teach you more on how to switch up your makeup routine for summer below.

Layer on the SPF

I know I know, we probably sound like a broken record. But wearing sunscreen is crucial to the health of your skin and to protect your skin from sun damage. It’s especially important in the summer months when the sun is out for more hours during the day and there’s less cloudy days! Reapply sunscreen every two hours with SPF of at least 30 or higher.

Bronze Away, Baby

Get a sun-kissed glow by applying bronzer after your foundation, or by skipping foundation and just applying bronzer in the summer! We wouldn’t recommend mixing the two products, but instead strategically applying bronzer to areas that would naturally get more tan. Try and find a product with flecks of copper and/or gold – perfect for summer!

Skip Foundation Application Altogether

Speaking of skipping foundation, why not try going a little more natural by just applying concealer instead? Apply concealer under your eyes and to cover blemishes/dark spots, then just blend in! Super easy!

Prime Time

Applying primer after moisturizer and before the rest of your face makeup is a great way to hold makeup in place in the summer months. When it’s hot out you don’t want to feel like your face is heavy with a lot of layers, so a simple primer application will help hold makeup in place without weighing you down.

Peaches, Not Peach Fuzz

Have you tried dermaplaning your face yet gal? Game changer! Dermaplaning is when you use a tiny razor-like tool to remove the top layer of dead skin to reveal a peach-fuzz-free complexion. Check out this pack of 6 for $5 on Amazon! You’ll be amazed at how nice your foundation sits on your face after giving this a try – it will blend better, look smoother, and stay on longer.

Makeup That Does it All

You wouldn’t want your makeup melting in your bag in the car, right? Skip having to carry around a bulky makeup bag and opt for two-for-one products, such as tinted moistruizer and a huestick product that can be used on your lips, lids, and cheeks. And look for a tinted balm, oil, or gloss that provides moisture to your lips along with a subtle shade!

Set it Up

The last thing you want is your makeup to smeer, smudge, or melt right? Lock your look in place by finishing your makeup routine by applying a setting spray. Skindinavia’s finishing spray offers up to 16+ hours of flawless protection. Not only is it water-resistant, it cools the skin – perfect for those hot summer days!
