1. Sunglasses & Floppy Hat
Sunglasses are a fashionably great way of protecting your eyes from the sun. But why stop there? Complement those shades with a floppy hat, and you’ll be protecting your head and shoulders while looking classy.
Most primers on the market contain silicone. Silicone is an ingredient that is very good to have in your primer to maintain your makeup application. Come rain or shine, it will prolong your application throughout the day, but remember to prevent your makeup from separating. To avoid having to touch it up, follow these rules:
- Don’t apply your makeup with your fingers. The oil on your hands can cause your makeup to separate. Apply your makeup with a foundation brush instead. You can use the same foundation that you have used to apply your primer with your foundation, usually a BB Cream ends up being your friend during this season.
- Silicone and water do not mix. So, make sure your primer matches your makeup ingredients. Since you are using a silicone based primer, make sure your makeup is silicone based, as well.
Once primer has been applied, apply your BB Cream – light foundation is all you need in the summer. Follow it with blush and gloss, and if you prefer, add eye liner and mascara as a finishing touch.
3. Shave Smartly
If you are anything like us, then all of those steps to shave is just too much. Shave some time of this tedious endeavor by using a shaver that has built-in shave bars and moisturizer, like a Gillette Venus Razor. You’re legs will feel smooth and look great, because of these added features.
