Look Fresh All Day Long

  1. Good Moisturizer - Keep your skin hydrated with a lightweight and oil-free moisturizer.
  2. Sunscreen - Don't forget to apply that sunscreen. Look for an SPF of at least 30 and be sure it is oil-free.
  3. Primer - Don't forget this step. Choose a matte primer and one that is oil-free. Primer will help your makeup stay on longer than without it.
  4. Less is more - Wearing less and applying touchups will help keep your makeup from melting off in that California summer heat.
  5. Lightweight products - Choose lightweight products that don't make your skin feel greasy.
  6. Waterproof - Waterproof makeup is a must in the summer. This will help keep your makeup from smudging or melting off in the heat.
  7. Setting Powder - Set that makeup with some setting powder. This is a must. This will help keep your makeup in place and keep you from looking shiny.
  8. Reapply - Plan on reapplying throughout the day if you are sweating or plan on swimming.
  9. Blotting Tissue - Keep these in your purse at all times. These are great for removing excess oil and or sweat. These keep you looking fresh all day.
  10. Have fun - Summer is full of colors. Don't be afraid to try new things when it comes to makeup.

Following these tips will help you stay flawless on those long summer days!
