#1: Multicoloured eyes and lips
It is the season to use colour on the eyes and lips but NOT both at the same time. That is overkill! Choose one feature that you want to showcase that day and pick a colour that is complimentary to your skin or eyes. Subtle make up enhances your features.
#2: Too light or too dark brow colour
Does your hair get lighter in the summer? Make sure that your brows match your colouring. Thick and shapely brows are very trendy but going too dark or too light will make you look fake! Use brow powder that is a perfect match for you.
#3: Too much blush/bronzer
Create a warm look with a bronzer blush this summer and create a sunkissed finish to your look but beware that you do not overdo it. Choose a blush that is the right color family for your skin and blend, blend , blend to create gorgeous contours without harsh breaks.
#4: Cakey Foundation, Flaky Foundation
Do you get drier in the summer? If you do then liquid foundation may not be suitable for you as there is a good chance that you will be caking and flaking by the afternoon. Too much foundation will melt in the summer months so stick with a primer like Colorescience’s Line Tamers, a good moisturizer like Prescribed Solutions Lasting Results with SPF and good mineral make up like Jane Iredale or Colorescience and you will have a flawless look this summer.
#5: Multi toned lip colours.
Lip glosses in lovely shimmery or nude tones this summer look natural. If you want your lip gloss to last use lip liner but DON’T use a colour that is too dark and seeps through your gloss. It’s not good any time but especially when you use light colour lipsticks or glosses. Our favourites? Jane Iredale lip glosses or Alyria’s Lip treatment ( the most fantastic treat for your lips).
#6: Fake Baking
As much as having a great looking tan makes you look warmer and golden brown this summer , the fastest way to have wrinkles, sunspots and an increased risk of cancer is to hit the tanning booths at any time. Your way to look fantastic this summer looking brown safely is to use sunless tanners like Jane Iredale’s Tantasia. It’s an ideal way to look tanned without the risks of any other tanners. Alternatively get a spray tan.. Its quick, lasts 7-10 days and can be kept for longer with sunless tanners. So lose the risk and get a fake bake the natural way with sunless tanners/ bronzers/ spray tans. Save your skin!
