Summer is just around the corner, ladies!
Lipstick & Luster and the Better Business Babe have teamed up to share this summer’s hottest makeup trends guaranteed to make your summer sizzle!
Show that summer glow without spending a second at the beach! Beat the heat and protect your skin by rocking a fun faux sun-kissed tan! Matte is out for summer! Get that glamorous glow by applying bronzer below your hairline, bridge of nose, tops of ears and of course, to the apples of your cheeks. When applying bronzer, keep in mind the areas of your face and body the sun would naturally hit. Continue by applying the bronzer to both shoulders, and voila! Gorgeous! Try these wonderful artistry favorites like bronzers from NARS in Laguna
and Benefit’s Hoola. MAC Cosmetics also has a TON of wonderful shades that include a lovely mineral line.
Subtly highlight your summer skin with a luminescent skin enhancer. Benefit Cosmetic’s High Beam provides a dazzling radiant shimmer, without creating an oily appearance. Apply it to the tops of cheekbones and just above the brow. NARS also has a wonderful illuminator that is guaranteed to provide that lovely angelic glow!
If going completely bare is not within your level of comfort this summer, use a tinted moisturizer! Not only is a tint hydrating for the skin, but tinted moisturizers obscure the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, pores, and other imperfections while the SPF adds a translucent veil of protection. Some of my personal favorites include Smashbox’s Camera Ready Beauty Cream with SPF 35, Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Beauty Balm and Clinique’s Moisture Surge CC Cream.
Pigment Rich Blushes
Did somebody say Orgasm??? How about Super Orgasm? This sexy blush is not only fun to say, but it is also fun to wear! Orgasm Blush makes cheeks blush a perfect pinky-peach flush and subtly highlights with accents of golden shimmer. Perfect for any summer day!
A personal favorite of mine! Yves Saint Laurent Blush Volupte – Heart of Light Powder blush provides contouring and achieves a vibrant glow. This blush offers balanced consistency and the higher pigment saturation offers a rich glow and natural build-able look.
