Sun Kissed Summer

Sun Kissed Summer
How to stay flawless in the summer

Hot long days, and endless party nights, it sometimes becomes difficult to look flawless all day in summer.  From the sun blaring in our face in the morning, to when we stumble in at 4:00am, we girls have a challenging time looking flawless all day.  There are 3 essential make-up products to help stay flawless all day without having to touch up.

Foundation being the base of our face, its usually the first thing that starts to look oily and needs a touch up.  Using a light foundation or a BB Cream, helps stay flawless, without feeling like we are wearing a cake on our face.  NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation is the perfect medium to a full coverage foundation, without the weight of a full coverage foundation.  With 20 different colours to choose from and only $57.00 at Sephora, it is essential to have in our make-up bags this summer. 

It is hard to choose the best concealer for your skin tone and blemishes.  Regardless of the weather, it is important to use concealer that will last all day and not crease.  Picking up a concealer for you, it is important to remember that it should only be a shade or two lighter then your foundation colour.  Anything to light or to dark will not blend well with the rest of your make-up.  Urban Decay has two great concealers; the first is the 24/7 Concealer Pencil.  This small $22.00 guy will last you longer then you think.  It will stay all day regardless if you are stuck in the office with no air conditioning, or partying all night.  With only 8 colours to choose from it might be hard to find the colour you desire, however the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer has a larger palate of colours to chose from and will give you the same feel as your foundation, light weight and perfect.  

Moving on to those cheeks, I do not know about you girls, but I cannot leave the house without my blush or bronzer.  With the cold wind of the winter gone, it is hard to achieve those rosy pick cheeks without that perfect blush.  NARS Blush in the colour Orgasm, is the perfect colour for night our day.  This peachy pink blush will for sure look good on any skin tone.  And for those girls that do not have time for a tan, the right bronzer might help with that sun kissed look we need.  When trying to get that sun kissed look it is important to remember that having a shimmer in the bronzer will help when the light reflects off your face.  NARS Bronzing Powder in Laguna has a great ratio of shimmer and colour.  This duo of blush and bronzer can be found at Sephora from $27.00-$52.00.
