We LOVE makeup as a beauty enhancer, but creating the perfectly finished makeup look can be tricky in the summer.
First, you’re sweating more which means your pores are open and your makeup is running. Plus, as you’re outside more showing off your beautiful face, your complexion will tan over time. How do you get long-lasting coverage that blends well in the summer months?
That’s why we celebrate Christmas in July, because the summertime is a great reason to update your makeup collection. Here’s our guide to the summer makeup essentials we recommend for glowing skin.
Because you sweat more in the summertime, your skin is at a bigger risk of acne breakouts and blemishes. As your pores open, dirt and grime build-up can trigger pimples and breakouts--especially if you aren’t consistent with your cleansing and toning routine.
We recommend rematching your foundation shade to match your newly tanned skin and upgrading to a product that won’t clog your pores. Our organic, acne-safe foundation is made with innovation to give you a glowing finish without clogging your pores. It’s available in 17 diverse shades to match your skin tone now and when your tan goes away, and it lasts long so you won’t have to reapply so much.
The first step to perfect makeup is a solid and consistent skincare routine. In the summer months, it’s especially important to be thorough with cleansing the skin to prevent breakouts and to not worsen any that are already there.
Our pre-cleanser dissolves away the stuff that causes breakouts for every skin type. It’s made with sunflower oil, which is nice and light on your skin. Sunflower oil is also rich in vitamins A, C, and D, which help to regenerate skin cells and shed acne-causing bacteria.
You should replace your makeup brushes every three months anyway, so you are probably due for a new one now. This one is cruelty-free and angled for precision and buildable coverage.
Lean into your summer glow with a blendable, buildable highlighter. We have two options depending on the finish you like. Both are whipped, weightless mousses that dry for a glowing finish.
Of course, we made these with pore safety in mind. Our highlighters are designed for use with acne and won’t clog your pores.
Happy summertime skin shopping!
