Beauty Tips for Effortless Summer Makeup + CONTEST (closed)!

Makeup should be changed every season. However, your beauty transition can be difficult when you don’t know the products you need to create a fresh and effortless summer look. Don’t worry, though – BH has got you covered! Here are our beauty tips for this season:

EYES

Brighter shades of eye shadow are vital to creating the perfect summer look. Instead of wearing darker shades such as gray or brown on your lids, opt for brighter neon colors such as neon green or purple. Just a swipe across your lids is more than enough to make your eyes pop. Our BH Party Girl Palette offers 40 bright eye shadows that you can use to brighten your lids.

LIPS

While darker lipsticks and liners are often popular in the cooler months, shinier, more colorful glosses, lipsticks and lip liners truly make a statement in the warmer months. Bright pinks and lighter colored lipsticks are ideal for balancing out a nice summer tan or making your skin appear brighter after the cooler months. However, even when you take a dip in the pool, you still want your makeup to look flawless. Our Waterproof Lip Liners come in a variety of shades for summer.

FACE

During the summer, it can get hot enough to make your makeup run, and sweat and oil can cause your makeup to smudge and look tired. However, when you make Anti-Shine Serum and makeup primer part of your summer makeup routine, you can keep your makeup on your face! Anti-Shine Serum and primer absorbs oil on your face and creates a smooth, matte surface that is ideal for makeup application. Our Anti-Shine Serum is ideal for all skin types and makes makeup application a breeze.

This Summer, switch your heavier makeup for brighter, lighter makeup, so you can look fresh and ready for anything all summer long!

Is it just us, or are wedding bells ringing? Everywhere we turn, a new happy couple is tying the knot or has passed out save-the-dates (and a BH employee recently got engaged!).

MUA Monday – Summer Skin Tips

 

With the blazing summer rays approaching, it is important to begin considering the effects of the coming season on our hair and skin. Depending on your skin type, it may become dehydrated or excessively oily (sometimes both!), so early preparation is important. After all, the makeup you wear won’t be at its best if the skin underneath isn’t taken care of properly! Here are my top 3 Summer skin tips to consider:

1. Use lots of sunscreen! Anything under 30 SPF for the face will not do do trick. Apply sunscreen daily, or whenever going outdoors, to protect your skin from the harsh long term effects of sun exposure. If you sweat or go into pool, you must re-apply! Also, something important to remember is that sunburns are a big DON’T. Getting sunburned means you’ve been overexposed to UV radiation, which increases your risk of skin cancer.

2. Remember to exfoliate and moisturize. Exfoliate your skin once or twice a week prior to applying your moisturizer. This will help remove dead skin cells from your face and cleanse deeper into your pores. Make sure to hydrate well after exfoliating to lock and seal the moisture in your skin. If your skin gets extra dry or sensitive after exfoliating, try a moisturizing mask once a week as it could help tremendously. Don’t forget to moisturize daily!

3. Here’s an easy one: Stay hydrated and drink plenty of water to maintain your body’s moisture balance. This will help your skin to stay clear and keep it from becoming overly dry from sun exposure.

There’s no need to stress too much over the details of your skin care routine. The most important thing is to be prepared for the upcoming months of sun rays to prevent potential beauty woes so you can be healthy and confident when it’s time to have fun!

Sincerely,

Julia
