Switching to a Summer Face…

It’s almost officially Summer!  That means sun, heat, humidity and sweat. It also means sun screen, melt proof products, dewy skin, deep cleaning your pores and staying hydrated.  Here are five suggestions I have for summer.


  1. Sunscreen– No matter what your skin tone you are, sun rays can cause damage to your skin when soaking in the sun for hours at a time.  One of the best facial moisturizing sunscreen formula’s I’ve tried is by Aveeno.


Aveeno Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30


2. Light Coverage Foundation– Substitute Full Coverage for lighter foundations or creams. Some BB and CC Creams have sunscreen in them which also help against harmful sun rays and usually have great skin nourishing benefits.  This will also help fight against heavier formula’s melting into your skin causing clogged pores.  Powder foundation, if you prefer something a little dryer but also note that even with the best primers and setting sprays they will eventually cake from the heat. Here are two that I suggest from Smashbox and Black Radiance Cosmetics.

Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream $42

Black Radiance True Complexion BB Cream $5.99




3. Liquid Lipstick or Matte Moisturizers–  Nobody likes lip colors running down their face right?  With the heat and humidity we need full proof lips that will stay on without having to reapply 10 times.  We also need something moisturizing as well so that our lips don’t dry out.  Here are two options from brands that sell unstoppable liquid lipsticks and matte moisturizers that’ll suit day and night looks.

Neutrogena MoistureSmooth Color Stick $8.99

Sephora Matte Lip Stain $14



4. Waterproof Products! Nothing is worse than having liners, brows and shadows slide down your eyes in the heat. First off, they usually irritate your eyes when they do get in them.  Here are some great products that I know will stay in place.

Rimmel London’s Scandaleyes Mascara $5.49,

Cargo’s Swimmables Collecation,

Kat Von D Beauty’s Tattoo Liner $20




5. Skin Hydration– Last but definitely not least you need skin Hydrating products to help promote healthy skin.  Great products that are not drying after taking your makeup off, that can be worn on their own and that can give a very natural glow.  For this, I suggest nothing other than Neutrogena HydroBoost Collection.  This is a personal favorite of mine and everyone who has tried it that I’ve conversed with seems to love it as well. These products protect, cleanse and treat skin at very affordable prices. The Deep Pore cleaning products from Neutrogena also help aid in cleaning your face.
