Warm Weather Makeup


 
Mary Kay mineral powder gives a flawless finish without shine
 

I subscribe to the theory of less is more. During hot sweltering days, this theory really makes sense. I will admit that I’ve taken to wearing pretty much just mascara when it’s hot. I don’t want to end up with raccoon eyes as my makeup runs down my face and with allergies this time of year I can’t seem to stop touching my eyes. I know this is a bad habit.

 

When the weather heats up our makeup melts down. Truthfully we should all be getting a little tanner which will allow for less makeup. This does happen in the first few weeks of warm weather and besides a tan isn’t as healthy as it looks. You can fake a tan but that can be a lot of work. It is much easier to work with the weather and our shiny faces.

 

Mary Kay sunscreen has SPF 35 now
 
 
Summer or when the weather is hot is the best time to wear less makeup. I usually stick to sunscreen, SPF 35, and a dusting of mineral powder. I skip all eye shadows during the day and just apply two or three coats of mascara. Some light blush or bronzer will go a long way towards faking some sun exposure without the harmful effect. Lipstick can be lighter in color, now is not the time for that deep burgundy to make an appearance.

 

Unless your skin is dry, a liquid foundation may appear heavy or cake after a few hours. A lightly tinted sunscreen can work well. It provides UV protection and hides a few flaws. You can touch up with pressed powder or maybe some rice paper pressed gently against your skin to soak up the oils, do not rub. One of the good things about warm weather is it lets us lighten up, our clothes, our makeup and ultimately our moods. Take advantage of it.
 
A little tinted moisturizer works perfectly for warm days
