Summer Beauty can be tricky for some trying to look hot when it’s really hot.

First tip. Less is more when it comes to summer beauty. Show as much skin as possible.  I love using a sunscreen all over the face and perhaps just a touch of Diorskin star concealer on skin variations set with a bit of bronzer. If I need to use foundation it will just be a few drops of nude air foundation applied with a brush in the center of the face.

I love a nice flush with a soft glow. This means don’t go too dark with the bronzer and DON’T use it all over your face. It will darken throughout the day.

I tend to lay low on shadows. But when I do I use eye prime under to make sure the shadows don’t move with humidity.  I also only use waterproof mascara if my client will be submerged in water. However my eyeliner is always waterproof. 

To enhance your body for summer try mixing a few pumps of glow maximizer into your body lotion for a beautiful golden glow.
