Do’s & Don’ts – Summer Makeup

Do’s & don’ts –

summer makeup

Summer is one of the best seasons of the year in Malta, when it’s comes to getting outs and about, having barbecues, special events, days at the beach… the list is endless!

One thing my clients ask about, quite a lot is what’s to do and not when it comes to makeup. A lot of the time we opt to go bare faced most of the time in summer months given the humidity, but it’s nice to be able to glam up especially for a special occasion or if you just want to!

So here’s my do’s and don’ts for the makeup this season!

Do – wear a tinted spf, la roche posay and vichy have great ones.

Don’t – skip skin care, opt for light weight formulas instead

Do – bronze! Wearing bronzer swept lightly across the face will give a sun kissed look.

Don’t – overdo high lighter as it can have you appearing sweaty very very quickly

Do – opt for Matt products under cream products

Don’t – wear too many cream based makeup products, again shiny and melty when applied incorrectly

Do – use tinted lip balm

Don’t – wear very soft kohl

Do – go for waterproof mascara, lip and eye liners

Don’t – over layer products

Do – use a hydrating face mist or makeup fixer like MAC fix plus or uriage thermal water to freshen up.

Don’t – apply makeup over sunburn… ever

do – experiment with fun colours, especially on your lips

don’t – well at least try to avoid very Matt lips

do – match your nails and lips… this with some mascara is a great summer fuss free look.

do – try out salon treatments such as lash lifts and brow laminations for a put together styled look for up to 8 weeks

These are just a few tips which will help your makeup look better and last longer.

Happy summer!
