102-240x240-6maySummer is here and the heat is on! Here are some useful suggestions for that cool look this summer.

Must buy cosmetics this summer
Must buy cosmetics for this summer are BB cream, a translucent powder and studio fix.

Summer make up trend

  • The ‘in make up trend’ this summer is a ‘No Makeup look’, which means no creamy base is to be used, only powder can be used.
  • This also means no eye shadow. You can choose to accentuate your eyes with a matte waterproof kohl pencil in brown or black.
  • A coat of waterproof mascara that isn’t too heavy can be used on your eyelashes.
  • The look is complete with a natural cheek and lip tint.

Useful tips for outdoor make up in summer

  • Never apply liquid base in summers during the day, instead just use powder base or studio fix.
  • You can conceal your under eyes with a concealer and brush the powder base all over the face and neck.
  • Avoid non waterproof mascara or kajal, glosses and glossy blush. Use matte lip pencils and tints instead.

This makeup look is not only suitable for  outdoors but also indoors during summer.

Suggestions to look fresh with a glow

  1. Usually the skin loses its glow faster and looks drained in summer. So here are a few suggestions to retain the fresh and glowing look throughout the day.
  2. Sunscreen is a must to keep the skin tone intact and to protect it from tanning.
  3. Cleansing and toning the face regularly will keep the skin fresh and glowing.
  4. Consume lots of water and keep yourself hydrated.

Storage of cosmetics in summer season
Preserve your oil or cream based foundation and lipsticks in a cool place or refrigerate it. This will prevent them from melting.
