Sunny days mean bare skin, and Im not just talking about your arms and legs. Makeup routines should change with the seasons. Here are a few tips to keep your face looking fresh as the rest of the world melts under the heat of the summer sun: Ditch your heavy wintertime foundation -- Nothing will make you look more wilted in the bright light of day than drippy, cakey foundation. But that doesnt mean you need to showcase your imperfections. Instead, try mixing your foundation with your favorite summertime moisturizer. The result is lighter, more translucent coverage that wont settle into your smile lines.
Opt for waterproof mascara -- Whether youre poolside or beach bound, the last thing you want to wear is a smudgy raccoon stare. Waterproof mascara will help you avoid this major faux pas, and keep your lashes looking fresh.
Go nude -- No, Im not advocating a retro free love look. Im talking about your lips. Brights are fun for evening, but as the mercury climbs, lighter lips can keep you looking cool. Pick a neutral or clear gloss for your daytime lip wear, especially when your outdoors. It will give you a youthful glow, and you wont need to worry so much about reapplying.
