Summer is a great time to lighten up! The best places to start are with your moisturizer and foundation. A lighter weight moisturizer or something with oil control can provide just enough moisture without contributing to shine.
Foundation will need to be color updated to work with your new skin tone if you have spent any time in the sun. This is a great time to consider a new lighter weight formula and or a combination product. Tinted moisturizers and BB Creams are a great way to get coverage, sunscreen and moisturizer all in one step. If you are a low maintenance girl this may be a perfect way to look good and get a few extra minutes of sleep in the morning. For those of you with more challenging skin, you may be best choosing each step ( moisturizer, sunscreen and coverage) individually, to get the best result and a customized regimen that will keep your skin happy and healthy.
Another great foundation option, specifically for combination or oily skin is a mineral powder formula. Applied with a flat brush these can be layered for the desired amount of coverage and will be fantastic for weathering the heat and humidity of the day.
Special occasions will still call for a true liquid foundation that will look flawless in person and also in digital photography. Tune in tomorrow to learn the secrets of keeping it in place without having to resort to the “fan in the face method”.
