Look beautiful and natural for the summer.

This summer, keep your makeup on light, allowing your skin to breathe and have a natural beauty! Use a light moisturizer with SPF ingredients to hydrate your skin and protect it from the sun's rays

Tinted moisturizer:Liquid foundation is heavy. Try to avoid it if you can. If you really must use base makeup, apply a tinted moisturizer to even out your skintone rather than your normal foundation.

A touch of bronzer:Use a little bronzer to get a healthy glow, if you haven't had any sun yet this season. Apply where the sun naturally hits your face - your forehead, nose, cheeks and chin. Use a very thin, fan-shaped brush to get light, subtle coverage. If you use bronzer, skip blush. If you aren't using bronzer, a light apricot or peach blush is an ideal choice.

Powder eyeliner:Eyeliner oftentimes smudges very easily in the heat and humidity. If you must line your eyes, use a powder eye shadow rather than pencil or liquid liners. With a very small slanted brush, apply dark shadow in a thin line to define your lash line. If you are going in the water, skip the liner or use a waterproof eyeliner instead.

Light eye shadow:Eye shadows crease and melt with perspiration, heat and humid. If you want to wear eyeshadow, make sure to apply a primer first to keep your shadow in place.
Choose light eye shadow colors that are close to your skin tone. Vanilla or gold shadow can give you some color without looking made-up.

Tinted lipbalm:Skip the lipstick and choose a light lipgloss or tinted lip balm instead. Softlips tinted lip conditioners are a fantastic choice for summer, providing sun protection as well as sexy hint of color and gloss.

Waterproof mascara:Make sure to use a waterproof formula if you want to wear mascara. Use brown-black rather jet black and only apply one coat. Use mascara only on your top lashes for a natural look this summer.
