Our Best Beauty Tips For Summer
Summer is our favorite season. From trips to the beach to shopping for dresses for summer, we can’t get enough of June, July and August. One of our favorite parts of summer are summer beauty tips. From lighter makeup routines to fruity fragrances, we’re obsessed with everything summer beauty. Here’s some of our best beauty tips for summer.
Switch Up Your Skin Care
Winter skin care is all about layering serums and heavy creams in order to battle dry winter skin. However, summer is all about reducing oil and giving your skin a light but effective dose of moisture. If you feel oily during the warm season, try a refreshing witch hazel toner, which will shrink pores and reduce shine. As for your nightly moisturizer, we love gel moisturizers. They have a light and refreshing texture but still give our skin the hydration it needs.
Try A New Scent
The fragrance you wear in winter shouldn’t be the same fragrance you wear in summer. Winter is all about woodsy and oriental scents. Summer should be about fruity florals. Look for scents that combine a fruity element, such as berry, with a floral scent like rose. This combination screams summertime.
Revamp Your Makeup Routine
We love doing bold looks in winter and using full coverage foundations that give us a gorgeous matte finish. However, this makeup style is simply too much for a lazy day at the beach. Instead, give lighter products a try. We love to swap our foundation for tinted moisturizer, which conceals flaws but still leaves us with a natural finish. Instead of heavy blush and bronzing powder, try a light berry tint on the cheeks to give yourself a gorgeous but natural flush.
Get Bronzed and Glowing
Now that dry skin season is gone, you don’t have to worry about slathering on thick body butters to stay moisturized. Swap out your body butter for a light moisturizer with a bronze hue to give you a gorgeous beach look. If you’re going to be using any sort of self-tanner or bronzing product, be sure to exfoliate in the shower with a sugar scrub so that you color distributes on your skin evenly.
Remember, the motto of summer beauty is “less is more.” Save the heavy products for winter and instead opt for light products that won’t feel heavy or greasy on your skin.
