All the Important
You Need to Change
When Summer Hits
By Gene Loves Acosta
Summertime is all about using minimal makeup but it doesn’t mean you should care less about which product to use. There are those who go through the hottest season without changing their beauty habits but if you want to have your most gorgeous summer yet, here are some tips to remember:
Choose a mascara that’s smudge-proof
No one wants to end up looking like a raccoon-eyed mess so make sure to choose eye products that stay on through sweat and humidity. Get one that gives a natural, clump-free look that lasts like The Falsies Push up Drama Mascara from Maybelline (P459). Its creamy and waterproof formula has a push-up effect that’ll effortlessly give volume to your lashes—just the perfect cross between bold and natural.
Pump up your SPF
We’re talking about facial products as well as beauty must-haves for hair and lips that have enough SPF while you’re enjoying the sun. The trick here is to get double-duty products like the SPF-charged lippies from Happy Skin. It can be worn both as a blush and a lippie and it has SPF 15 to protect your lips from the sun’s damaging rays. For that perfect summer glow, try the Shut Up & Kiss Me Lip & Cheek Mousse in The Morning After (P699).
Stash up on blotting papers
This one isn’t only for those with oily skin because while the sun can help you look glowing, it can also leave your skin shiny—and not in a good way. For those who are always on the go, make sure to have oil-blotting papers in your beauty kit. Try the one from Sephora (P385) for a beautiful matte finish.
Ditch the heavy base
For everyday use, stay away from putting heavy dose of foundation and stick to lighter bases like BB or CC creams. It has a more hydrating feel for a natural-looking complexion and it can also cut your morning beauty routine down by half. Try Olay Total Effects 7 in 1 Pore Minimizing CC Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 15 (P499) for an airbrushed and radiant finish.
