Fun Summer Makeup


Now that summer is here, you may be tired of wearing the same smoky eye makeup each and every day. It is time for you to switch it up and try something new. It is also time to break out a new color pallet and try wearing some new colors. Summer is the perfect season for trying something new and bright colors are all the rage. Here are some colorful makeup tips that you can use when doing your makeup this summer to be perfectly in season!

Try Shades of Blue

Since summer is all about laying by the pool or on the beach, you can use shades of blue on your eyes instead of basic, natural colors. There are many shades of blue eye shadow out there that you can use on your eyes. You can even blend them together like you would with a smoky eye for a look that is all your own. When you add some greens and a hint of gold to the look, you can really change it up. Blue eye makeup paired with a coral lip is a great look for a day in the office or a night out on the town.

Keep it Basic

Another thing that you will want to try this summer is to keep your makeup looking pretty basic and minimal. You will want to wear only the bare necessities sometimes when it comes to makeup. This means that you can use some bronzer, but try to skip the foundation. You can also use mascara to lengthen and add volume to your eye lashes, but you will want to either go light on or skip the eyeliner all together. If you do feel the need to wear eyeliner, use it only on your bottom water line so that it looks natural and not overdone.  If you want to, try using mineral makeup for the most natural and minimal look.

Keeping Your Skin Healthy

No matter what kind of makeup you wear this summer, remember to always keep your skin healthy, as well. Be sure to wash your makeup off at the end of the day so that it is not clogging your pores or causing a break out. You will want to use an oil free makeup remover if you need to on the mascara, especially if it is water proof. Additionally, stay hydrated and drink lots of water so that your skin can look its best.


Microdermabrasion is a process that helps your skin stay healthy and vibrant with a wonderful glow and vitality. The first thing you should know about microdermabrasion is that there really are no risks that come with it, so don’t worry. What happens with microdermabrasion is that the top layer of your skin is removed, unveiling healthy skin underneath. You don’t have to do it everyday, but at least once or twice a month will keep your skin looking healthy and alive.

The summer is a great time for you to try something new and that goes for makeup and skin care as well. if you are someone that always wears natural colors, try switching it up this year and wearing something bold and bright for fun. Trying mineral makeup may also be a great idea because it has no harmful effects on your skin and can give your skin a natural glow without looking fake. Just remember to take care of your skin and stay hydrated on hot days. By following these makeup and skincare tips, you will be looking hot this summer!
