The summer sun will be beaming on us very soon, which means beach days, fruity cocktails, and lots of sweaty days. It can be difficult to wear makeup during the summer because it can melt off so easily. You may even feel like there isn’t much of a purpose in wearing much makeup for fear that it’s just going to smudge and come off. But how about those summer weddings? Those nights on the patio of a bar with your girlfriends? I think you’ll be missing out on wearing a lot of fun, bright colors if you don’t consider that you CAN wear makeup during the summer if you use the right products – like some AVON treasures I found!
The key to summer makeup is keeping things light and fresh. It’s not necessary to cake on lots of layers in hoping that it’ll stay on. You also want to stick with lightweight products that go on easily and have some lifespan. But please, before you put on ANYTHING, don’t forget your sunscreen! It’s essential to protect your face from the sun at all times; makeup doesn’t always contain the SPF you need.
This look that I created for summer with AVON uses some key products to highlight natural beauty, with a stunning, attention-grabbing lip color to brighten it up. My features feel highlighted and my skin feels soft, and I’m not concerned about all-day wear.
I began with the Ideal Flawless CC Color Corrector Cream, which already contains SPF 50! Often times, you can find some concentration of SPF in a BB or CC Cream, which acts as a foundation and a moisturizer. I used the shade Medium; the formula is lightweight and the coverage is flawless. It goes on smoothly while working to eradicate dark spots and damage thanks to licorice, vitamin C, and more key ingredients. My skin looked dewy, while still looking fresh throughout the day!
I also used the mark. Touch & Glow Shimmer Cream Cubes All-Over Face Palette to highlight my cheekbones and add some color to my face. The thing I love most about this palette is that there’s mixture of colors you can play with and created many combinations out of it. The shimmer qualities are just stunning when the summer sun shines over your face! The color stayed saturated on my cheeks all day, and gave dimension to my look. It’s also multipurpose – I used a little bit on my eyes as an eyeshadow for that shimmery gold and natural-looking glow.
I went with just a thin, slightly winged eyeliner for just a small amount of definition on the eye. My favorite part about the mark. What A Line Max Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner is that it contains small amount of shimmer, which brightened up my eyes so beautifully. The applicator makes it so easy to glide the liner on the lids. The great thing about the liner being waterproof is if you do sweat a little bit, it’s not going to melt off! I defined my lashes with the Wash-Off Waterproof Mascara, which again, is formulated to stay on even through vigorous activity! This is great for a natural look, it doesn’t clump up on your lashes.
Now for the main attraction: the powerful bright pink lip! I went with the Ultra Color Indulgence Lipstick in Poppy Pink, and it is so pigmented and smooth. As soon as I put it on, it felt moisturizing on the lips and hydrated. The consistency was creamy, and stay on my lips all day. The selection of shades are just stunning; there is a color for every woman! It gave me a nice pop of color without overpowering my entire look!
With AVON, these summer looks are simple and super attainable with their affordable price points and wide ranges of colors and shades. I absolutely enjoying these products, and for this summer, I’d definitely included them in my daily routine. If you want to spruce up your look a little bit while remaining positive that your makeup won’t come off in the summer elements, these products are fantastic to add to your makeup bag!
