Be Happy, Feel Beautiful

The Right Summer Makeup For You

Summer is about freedom from school, happiness, and–minimal make-up! Long days at the beach and spending your time relaxing means you don’t need to put globs on make-up on to feel beautiful! As much as the sun can cause major make-up meltdowns, it doesn’t have to if you just follow a few simple tricks. Take these easy make-up do’s and don’ts to help your face be as free and light as the skirts and sundresses you wear!

Do: Waterproof Mascara

Lashes that pop can accentuate your entire face! Mascara is my must-have staple and looks great with a tan! Just make sure it’s waterproof if you’re planning a day at the pool.

Don’t: Powder

Using powder to “help” your face retain make-up and stop sweating can end up making you look as if you’re wearing loads of make-up and unnatural! Powder can really cake up your face and make you look pale. Instead, try oil-blotting sheets to avoid your make-up from running down your face AND won’t cause your make-up to come off.

Do: Cheek Stains

Cheek stains are great for the summer in lieu of regular blush because it won’t run down your face on those 100 degree days!

Don’t: Forget Sunscreen!

Even if you’re wearing foundation with a small amount of SPF, you still need to wear sunscreen! Your skin will thank you later on in life when you’re wrinkle-free and free of any harsh burns!

Do: Eye shadow Primer

Prior to applying eyeshadow, prime your eyelid with an eye shadow primer. This guarantees that your eye shadow will stay on your lids!

Don’t:  Foundation

As much as you want to cover up blemishes with foundation, resist the urge by instead using a tinted moisturizer. Foundation can be a pore-clogger in the sweltering sun! It’ll prevent any summer make-up malfunctions!

Blissful Belles are bound to spend some carefree time in the sun (as they deserve it!) and want to look good without excessive amounts of make-up on. Summer does not mean layer on the bronzer for us fair-skinned ladies, so drop the bronzer and spend some real time in the sun (just remember the sunscreen)!
