Maximize Your Summer’s Glow
We can’t fully bid adieu to our summer tans just yet, so we searched for some ways to maintain that sun-kissed complexion. The Los Angeles makeup guru Angela Levin unveils her signature tricks and go-to products in this article – read on!
We often feel reluctant to erase our summer tan, so we avoid exfoliation. Nevertheless, dry skin looks aged while hydrated and bronzed skin appears vibrant and youthful – therefore regular exfoliation is a must.
To keep your skin looking healthy, make sure to moisturize twice daily using a deeply hydrating product that’s light and not too thick. Allow it time to fully absorb for at least 10 minutes; if you can still feel an oily residue after the allotted period, then you’ve used too much! To help lift away this excess oil from your face, take a tissue and tap lightly over the area.
Additionally, serums are incredibly beneficial when used either with or instead of regular moisturizers – just remember to use only a small amount as any leftovers should be rubbed into the hands (which often get neglected during colder seasons!). Don’t think eye cream is necessary? You’re right—a good quality facial moisturizer will do wonders here.
3. Self Tan
It’s well known that if you want a deep glow, start with a good exfoliation and moisturizing session. Afterward, make sure to lather on self tanning cream every day until you get the desired color.
As the sun’s radiant heat intensifies, so does your need to secure a lasting summer glow. To achieve this goal, primer should be used beneath the foundation for an overall lighter aesthetic that will endure for hours on end.
Search for a product that is effortless to apply and can withstand even the harshest of winter weather. A sheer formula is essential as you should choose a color slightly darker than your skin tone, never more than three shades dark. Once applied, make sure to create a seamless finish by blending down onto your neck and décolletage area.
If you’re looking for a way to get rid of those redness and under-eye circles, concealer is the answer! Instead of using foundation alone or in combination with it, concealer can help create an even complexion without covering up natural features. Concealers are especially effective when applied around the nose and mouth area as well as underneath your eyes.
For an effortless application and beautiful, healthy-looking finish, look no further than this amazing product! A mere tap on your face with your fingers followed by a circular motion does the trick to yield a lovely sheen that’s not too shiny.
For a subtle, iridescent look, choose from an array of pastel hues such as mauve, beige, green, gold and silver.
For a hydrated, glossy finish on your lips, opt for lighter colors and glossier textures. Avoid darker shades and matte hues to ensure you retain the necessary moisture!
For a bold and captivating look, use an intense black mascara on your top lashes while adding a pop of color to the bottom with yellow, blue or purple. These colors will not only make your eyes stand out but also bring some fun vibrancy to the entire makeup look!
