Powder Up!


With the sun finally starting to heat things up, it’s time to make some obvious changes. But when trading in your boots for flip-flops and your plum purple nail polish for hot pink, make sure not to neglect your most necessary accessory: makeup. Without properly formulated face makeup, things can get messy.

Summer makeup application can be a little tricky, but it is possible to embrace the heat while maintaining your perfected look. For a flawless face that lasts all day, trade in oily foundations for something with a powder base. Powders with small particles work best because they allow some of the skin in it’s natural form to show through, and sun-kissed skin deserves to be celebrated. A good choice is Bare Escentuals bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation.

Bronzers are also a summer essential. They both highlight the hard work you put into that tan skin (hard work obviously accomplished on a lounge chair, poolside, drink in hand) and prove to be extremely wearable in a range of temperatures.

It’s the summer, so allow your natural glow to shine. With the correct powder formulas, you will achieve the perfect complexion that won’t be running anywhere!
