3 Summer Makeup Tips to Help You Look Flawless

Austin, TX (PRWEB) June 30, 2014

Increasing summertime temperatures can cause challenges for those that like to stay on trend with makeup. In an article written for FashionMingle.net, Makeup Trends Reporter Jeanine Valente shared her best practices for applying makeup for long-term wear and coverage. She also highlighted the trendiest summer makeup looks as seen on New York Fashion Week runways.

In the article Valente gives readers the 3 tips she has been using successfully for years during summertime months. Valente believes that by using a primer and a base coat of liquid foundation, summer makeup will have a longer than average wear with minimal touch ups. Its nice to wear something lighter for summertime and let your natural radiance show through, Valente said, If you prefer minimal coverage, skip the foundation and tinted moisturizer and powder your face to mattify your skin.

Valente also encouraged using eye shadow as a fashion statement. Cream eye shadows tend to wear longer than traditional powdered versions, and bright summer-inspired colors such as coral, turquoise and canary yellow open up the eyes to make them appear larger. Valente also shared how to keep powder eye shadows from creasing after hours of wear. Layer your cream shadow with a powder shadow on top to make it last even longer, recommended Valente.

Understanding the challenges of keeping a long lasting look fresh, unmelted and smudge-free, Valente also recommended that lightly applied makeup as an option, especially for cheeks and lips. For summer, I like to keep my makeup simple by wearing a tinted lip balm or just plain old chap-stick, said Valente, If youre trying to look extra special, lightly fill your lips in with a lip liner or stain and layer a similar color lip gloss or lipstick on top.
