Have you changed your makeup routine to make it more warm weather friendly? If not, here are some easy ideas for you!!
IN YOUR 20S
Even though you are only in your 20s, it is crucial that you begin taking care of your skin and protecting it from sun damage. Start your makeup routine with a tinted moisturizer. Look for one that is long lasting and has an SPF of at least 15. Once you have applied your tinted moisturizer, fake your summer glow with a bronzer, All fabulous 20 year olds should not hit the beach without the perfect pink gloss! This season, poppy pinks and fuchsias are all the rage and are a huge help to instantly intensify tans.
IN YOUR 30S
For summer 2010, women in their 30s should go for a eye-catching bronze eye. Once again, start with a quality tinted moisturizer and then apply a cream shadow and liner. Once your eyes are bronzed and gorgeous, 30 year olds should not be afraid to take a risk when reaching for that perfect blush. This season, pinks and peaches are carrying through spring into summer and are a great alternative to using bronzer all over your face. Lastly, this season, I am all about a nude or natural gloss applied liberally throughout the day.
IN YOUR 40S
It’s all about moisture, moisture, moisture! Next use a more highly pigmented bronzer than your wore in your 20s and 30s - Then find your perfect mascara and summer 2010 is the time to do this! Find one that is waterproof and helps you create the lashes you wish you were born with - whether you want extra length, more volume, or both. I recommend one HERE. A great mascara paired with a perfect bronzer and a gloss in the red family makes you look like you spent hours doing your makeup, instead, you can spend the extra time frolicking on the beach looking refreshed and glowing!
IN YOUR 50S
It’s all about smoothing out fine lines, wrinkles and creating drop dead gorgeous cheekbones! And because you may need a little extra coverage, I recommend pairing your tinted moisturizer with a bit of your favorite foundation. Next, apply a cream bronze stick right under your cheekbone line and rub it in with your fingers in an upward motion, followed by a similar product in a true pink for a flush of instant color at the apple of your cheek. Then, to make eyes pop, look for a cream shadow that won’t cause your lids to appear creased. Lastly, look for a shade of gloss that is a little matte and generously apply, especially in the pout for instant, fuller lips.
AT ANY AGE:
Have fun, as summer is a great time to try something new - but, just remember sunscreen and the right gloss are always in style!!
