TRANSFORM YOUR SPRING MAKEUP INTO YOUR SUMMER LOOK
How-To Guide to Use Products in Your Beauty Bag to Get the Look Right Now!
The weather is starting to heat up and that means it is time to update our beauty bags once again...or does it? Every season it seams that most of us end up adding and taking away a lot of what we bought the previous season, however when it comes to spring and summer there are a lot of items that you can use when adapting to the next season.
Since spring and summer are both times where the weather is warm, you want to maintain a very bronzed, almost flushed appearance to give you that breezy, carefree look and feel. The easiest way to do this is to keep your tinted moisturizer out and continue using that as opposed to a liquid makeup or something in a cream form. A liquid could possibly add a lot of grease on your face and you end up looking shiny as the day progresses while the cream based makeup can sometimes not allow you to achieve that sultry summer glow. Plus you should already have a tinted moisturize with SPF from the springtime, so you will be able to protect your face as well as keeping a summer glow.
A bronzer is also important and most likely in your bag from your spring items so you were able to add a little bit of color to your winterized face. Brush the bronzer on your forehead, nose and cheeks instead of just your cheeks for your spring time application. A rose blush can still be used in the summer as well. Corals and pinks look fantastic during the spring because it gives you a very romantic and feminine appeal and you can keep that for your summer look too. Instead of just tapping the apples of your cheeks with the blush, dab it all over your cheeks to give a healthy flushed look. Add your highlighter along the apple of your cheek as well as under your eyes and in the corner for the ultimate glow.
Keep your lips in neutral, glossy shades such as nude, pink and peach. You most likely still have all of these in your beauty bag, just make sure that you add a little more shimmer by adding a top coat of clear gloss. A nice glossy lip always looks great with a bronzed summery face.
If you were daring enough to purchase blue eyeliner to try out the funky spring trend, you need not worry about tossing it anytime soon. You can still rim your eyes with a shade of blue to enhance your beautiful specs even during the summer. In fact this trend is still very hot as the warmer weather hits because it is nautical and really adds so much sparkle to your beach babe look.
Use some of the staple items in your makeup bag to make the transition from spring to summer a little easier on your budget and you will look and feel incredibly fabulous!
