Summer Makeup and Hair

Jul 01, 2016 04:18PM, Published by Staff Writer, Categories: Beauty +Style, Acadiana Life Beauty




Embrace the humidity in Cajun country and use it to your advantage to go for a more natural, bohemian look this summer!

Foundation.

Add a couple of drops of your foundation to your moisturizer to make your own tinted moisturizer and apply all over your face, blending down the jaw line with your freshly washed hands or a makeup applicator.

If you have naturally oily skin and this is too shiny for your liking, you can dust loose translucent powder onto your face with a big powder brush.

Eyes

Use a powdered brow definer rather than a pencil. Powder works best in summer.

Skip eyeliner and shadow all together for a more natural look. Liner will likely run in this heat.

Curl lashes and apply 2-3 coats of waterproof mascara. This will open up and draw attention to your eyes.

Cheeks

Use your favorite blush or bronzer on the apples of your cheeks where the sun naturally hits your face.

Lips

Create your own lip gloss with a lip liner close to your natural lip color, apply and blend coconut oil with your finger.

Hair

Give your hair a rest from heat elements such as blow drying and flat ironing but let it air dry. Spritz with sea salt mixed with water for beach waves. Straight haired friends may have to wrap hair overnight in small buns to achieve a wavy look.

If you’re not into the natural look for everyday wear, try it on for size on weekends and on vacation. You will be surprised at how many compliments you’ll get on your slightly enhanced au natural look.
