Summer is all fun and games until you find yourself blinded by melting mascara and unsticking your thighs from plastic chairs. Let’s be real, no one has time for that. Even though the sun can feel good for loading up on that Vitamin D, it doesn’t feel so good when our makeup is sliding off our faces. Don’t sweat it! Beauty expert & founder of Dreamlash Academy, Angela May has 5 go-to summer tips to ensure that your makeup stays fresh and flawless throughout the day.
Use a setting spray – To help lock your makeup in and keep products from sweating away, it’s important to finish with a setting spray. Even when temperatures hit their highest points, your makeup will stay fresh and in tact. Consider Gerard Cosmetics Slay All Day setting spray.
Keep your skin protected and moisturized – To keep skin looking it’s best; use Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturizer with SPF 30. Sunscreen moisturizer is an absolute must to keep your skin radiant and healthy during the summer heat. Plus you’ll thank yourself 10 years from now when your face is wrinkle-free.
No more melting mascara– Eyelash extensions have become the new beauty addiction that everyone has developed an obsession over, says beauty expert, Angela May, Founder of Dreamlash Academy. There is no need to use mascara with lash extensions, so when you emerge from taking a dip in the ocean, your face will look just as flawless as ever while not being stained with mascara! Plus, you won’t have to worry about them melting off in the summer heat.
Keep brows on fleek -Brows have been having a moment for some time now, and the best way to keep yours looking on fleek is Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow Eyebrow Gel. It carries an innovative brush-on fiber gel that adheres to skin & hair, creating brows where before there were none. It builds easily for thick, lush arches, thanks to a tapered brush for blending and a precision tip for shaping.
Always be ready for touch ups – Shiseido Pureness Oil-Control Blotting Paper ($18.50 for 70 sheets) are the lifesavers of the party! They are good to absorb oil and sweat like no other and eliminate any shine on your face to rejuvenate a clean and fresh look.
