The summer heat is wonderful for BBQ’s and pool days, but not so great for our makeup. Overhearing constant complaints of eyeliner running and foundation not staying in place, I figured why not talk about makeup that will last even on the hottest days. Using Tarte makeup, I created a beautiful, fresh, summer look.
Always begin with clean skin. Before bed, I make sure my makeup is completely washed away from the day. Not only is it healthy for your skin, but the products you place on will last longer and will be more effective! Microcleansers, such as Clinique Sonic Purifying brush, are wonderful tools to assure all the gunk is gone. Once with a clean face, begin by adding a sunscreen moisturizer. I love Tartegaurd all natural sunscreen with SPF 30. It is light and absorbent. If you are in the sun for hours on end, make sure to reapply your sunscreen in order to keep your face protected and free from premature aging.
Next select either a BB cream or light foundation. My go to is Tarte amazonian clay foundation in light sand. This stuff stays for the whole day without wearing off. It is also easy to apply, especially with the soft moisturizer from Tartegaurd. I have been wearing this specific foundation for nearly three years.
Adding a kiss of blush or bronzer will help give your cheeks a little summer pop while not weighing down your fresh look. Here I am using the Thrilled Tarte blush. I also love Park Avenue Princess bronzer to highlight and contrast. I recommend using one or the other to perfect your clean summer look.
For a day look, I added a light pink LipSurgence called Wishful. It is the perfect color without being overly dramatic. I also love lip stains for summer becuase they are less likely to melt off in the humidity and heat. If you are heading out for the night, I love Tarte’s eyeliner called emphasEYES and a swipe of Gifted mascara. The mascara especially really opens up my eyes and elongates my lashes. Plus, it has never clumped on my lashes before! I believe that is a miracle.
There you have it! The perfect, stay-still, summer look. What are you tips and tricks when it comes to makeup that lasts? Let me know in the comments below.
