7 Fresh Makeup Tips for Summer

I am SO excited that summer is just about here!!! Bring on the food, family, and ice cream, right?! It’s my FAVORITE season for lots of reasons, but I really enjoy all the experiences and travel. With a busier schedule comes (you guessed it!) less time! If you’re anything like me, you want to soak up all the amazing moments without spending a ton of time getting ready every day. So, here are 7 fresh makeup tips for summer that will keep you ready for my favorite season and are time saving, too!

  1. Care For Your Skin

Let’s start with great skin! Healthy skin starts from the inside out, so make sure you stay very well hydrated in the summer. It’s easy to forget to enjoy enough water!

Along with that, I try to up my exfoliation game to keep my skin happy and glowing.

If you get a sunburn (which, let’s be real, probably will happen!), take care of your skin by using aloe or witch hazel to calm the burn.

  1. Sunscreen

This might seem obvious BUT it’s super easy to forget about applying sunscreen to your face! If you’ve had your eyebrows microbladed, sunscreen can really help protect your new brows.

If you don’t like putting straight sunscreen on your face (because… let’s be honest, they all smell a little weird!), you can easily find makeup and moisturizers with sunscreen built-in.

  1. Control Oil

Switch to products that help prevent excess oil production. With hot days and more activity, you want to prevent your skin from getting too oily.

Even those with dry skin can have oily days when the weather is warmer!

I love blotting papers to remove excess oil and keep my skin looking fresh, not oily.

  1. Use Bronzer

I love bronzer! It’s light and gives you a sun-kissed glow without needing a ton of makeup. Instead of using a heavy foundation, use a bit of concealer paired with a light bronzer.

Don’t overdo it! Just a light application will last a long time and leave you feeling lighter and fresher than traditional makeup. Plus, it saves a ton of time over putting foundation on!

As a bonus, using bronzer helps your teeth look whiter. Who doesn’t want that!

  1. Choose Blush or Sheer Colors

Darker colors are perfect for those crisp autumn or winter days, but in the summer, you want to look fresh and natural!

Choose pinks, peaches, ivory, or light browns to look put together but not overdone.

  1. Choose Waterproof Products

From mascara to lipstick, waterproof makeup is a game-changer for summer activities!

If you’re heading to the pool or beach, using waterproof products helps you look great without coming out of the water with runaway makeup!

  1. Don’t Forget Your Nails

It’s easy to focus on your face, but neglect your nails! For summer manis and pedis, I love going with light colors OR a really fun, vibrant color to match my outfit.

Don’t forget to moisturize and protect those hands with sunscreen! Along with making sure your face is protected, your hands need some love as well!


So, tell me… what are YOUR summer plans?! Heading to the beach or family vaca? Let me know in the comments below!!
